Simmops I never knew there was such thing as a "jibber", which is basically somebody who breaks into games


jibbing just means wangling something for free / getting away with not paying for something. Its a way of adding some kind of bantz name to a negative thing so it feels more acceptable to those doing it

I've seen a few interviews from people justifying their actions at the weekend. They are always overloaded with "I" and "Me". "I had a great time and regret nothing". "England playing at home was too big an opportunity for me to miss out on".

A complete lack of consideration for how their behaviour affects others. The fact that there is now a headline on the Sun basically calling him a oxf*rd probably doesn't bother him.

It certainly paints things in a slightly less negative light than 'thief'

We were the first ever holders - beat Scotland 4-2 in the second ever international match (drew the first 0-0). We also won it from West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final, but lost it the following April to Scotland at Wembley, losing a friendly 3-2.

South Korea briefly held the title. Romania had carried it into the 1994 World Cup, but lost a group game to Switzerland, who themselves lost a group game to Colombia. The Colombians then lost their first post World Cup friendly to South Korea.

England briefly won it again in 2000, when we beat Germany at the European Championships, before losing it to Romania in our following group game.

One of the most obscure holders are probably Angola. The title went to Africa thanks to Ireland, who had beaten holders Czech Republic, only to lose a friendly to Nigeria. The title got 'stuck' in Africa until Romania won it back a year later.

England are an impressive team these days. That’s a thumping win. Great for the Hungarians to see their team blown away. Nothing more than they deserve for their scummy chanting and booing.

There is no doubt a scummy element to England’s support.

I don’t think their hatred is limited to football fan attitudes

Where have you seen that ?

The only article I can find is about countries being excluded for demonstrating racism, not for being subject to it.

These international qualifiers get ever more pointless as an England reserve side struggled past Andorra today, really should have pre-qualifying competition and reduce the number of these fixtures.

Not really criticising the fact it’s largely a reserve side (though disrespecting the opposition and tournament isn’t a good way to go despite it being common practice in domestic cups) more the fact it’s 3 games in less than a week - and not exactly well managed having to go to Eastern Europe twice either side of a game at Wembley.

Other federations do pre-qualifying, but then they have a greater disparity between a small number of excellent sides, and a large amount of dross. Europe is different - the majority of countries fit into that 'middle' space where they aren't going to win a tournament, but can make a good case that they could qualify for one (especially with tournaments expanding).

So where Africa for example bins off 18 teams in its first round, and Asia rids itself of 30 through two rounds, pre-qualifying in Europe would basically be a way of getting the Faroes, Andorra and a handful of others to play-off for one spot. For me, I'd sooner these sides just got a chance to play against the better teams a handful of times.

Plus I can't support any change that removes the possibility of Ireland losing to Luxembourg.

This German ref looks out of his depth. Massive homer.
