What to do with your old England flags…

I can say with the accuracy that comes from working out of Slugger Central that the previous ubiquitous England flags have all but disappeared from the tops of passing cars. The BBC has ten things you can do with yours (if you’ve got one that is). Paul Doyle has four things that England has to learn by the next World Cup.

  • I wonder are there 10 things to do with an unwanted
    Irish flag. I can only think of 1, it must be the time of year here in N.I. 😉

    Hi all,

    I think it’s great that the english by the millions are flying and identifying with the white flag with the red cross….the flag of england. The more that identify with that flag…the sooner the union jack can be dumped….

    Print the Red Hand of Ulster on them and sell them to Northern Ireland. They will get far more use over here than back home, because we all know YOU LOVE FLAGS!

    We only use the cross of St George to fly over Church of England Churches or for football games. The people of Northern Ireland use flags for more reasons than any other country on the planet – including hanging them from walls, lamposts, and other places!

    Just arrived back in England after a trip home and the street is looking much better without the flags and assorted tat that some of my more uncouth neighbours had strung out.

    Not really bothered what they do with them, but the EU flag mountain must have taken a battering judging by what I’ve seen round here in the last month and on my trip up the shankill on saturday.

    Sell them to the ‘wee England ‘supporters at Windsor Park.

    They’ve all bought the England jerseys, why not finish it off with a ‘wee fleg’

    Rule Britannia !!!!

    Perhaps for future competitions the flag manufacturers might consider issuing flags with the red cros printed only on one side. Then when the inevitable penalty shoot-out begins which heralds England’s exit, the fans can simply reverse the flags to the all-white side in the “Don’t shoot! We surrender!” signal.

  • Rory Amen 🙂

    Nice to see our English neighbours taking their defeat with a bit of style and a sense of humour. Good for them!

    ‘Nice to see our English neighbours taking their defeat with a bit of style and a sense of humour. Good for them!’

    My thoughts exactly. Almost makes me feel sorry for them… almost!

  • Prince Eoghan

    Aye, good grace.

    That is why Andy Murray got mouthfulls of anti-Scottish shite, by these gracefull losers.

  • smcgiff

    ‘That is why Andy Murray got mouthfulls of anti-Scottish shite, by these gracefull losers.’

    He was the darling of centre court, the successor to Henmania – Not his fault – but, can hardly expect otherwise after throwing back the support at those that lavished it on him.

  • Prince Eoghan

    “He was the darling of centre court, the successor to Henmania – Not his fault – but, can hardly expect otherwise after throwing back the support at those that lavished it on him.”

    Forcing him to support a country that he see’s as his countries rival in football? Is this a kind of sport fascism? so as not to hurt a few little Engurlanders feelings. The words, revolve, around and not spring to mind.

    BTW. I thought it was funny how the Engurland flags got ditched after his ABE comment for butchers aprons. Only some forgot to take off their Engurland tops, ahhh bless. They hoped to convert him to their side obviously.

  • nutjack

    nobody forced him to do anything

    he was asked if he’d be supporting England

    he said no

    so people said they weren’t cheering for him

    it’s called Cause and Effect – it’s quite simple to understand if you could get your head out of your anglophobic backside for long enough

    Ronaldo wannabe! Do you also pluck your eyebrows! :¬)

  • Prince Eoghan

    Nutjack.

    Ah, you must be one of the little Engurlanders that Murray upset. Well bless your cotton socks. Maybe you can develop talent of your own, and not try to force non-Anglo’s to love you.

    Sadly for you and yours, apart from maybe the Maltese and the neo-cons in Washington no-one likes the arrogance of the English. Now if you come on and say that you are not English, how does that make you look;¬)

    *Sticks the heid oan the man, and runs away*

    Presumably these are special green England jerseys with a celtic cross on them bearing the legends “Irish Football Association” and “Northern Ireland”.

    Got any more silly, pathetic bitter tripe you’d like to get off your chest?
