Anyone else getting excited? Where's the best atmosphere for watching? (Want to be surrounded by patriotic England fans obviously, not the Russian supporting Brexiter type of people).

I do wonder how Brexiters can call themselves patriotic when it's increasingly clear all the lies they believe about the EU are Russian propaganda. That's why every Brexiter talks about their opinion and "will of the people" but can't find a single fact to support their arguments.

Watched by idiots, played by idiots. Hoping we drop out as soon as possible and everybody cries like girls then grows up a bit.

Brexit vote - all Russia's fault. Any criticism of Israeli government policies - anti-Semitism. Everyone saw through your childish nonsense some time ago, so why bother.

I was excited about the World Cup when I was a boy, but I grew out of it. I envy those adults who are still excited by things like Christmas and the World Cup.

I've never known expectations for England to be so low going into a tournament. Still looking forward to it. I am lead to believe it is a funny old game.

I'm all ready for it.
Got a big stash of books to read for all those evenings where there's nothing worth watching on tv because it's all footie and repeats of Midsomer Murders, got a few weekends away planned to avoid all the endless post- and pre- match chat, all I need now is to check the schedule for England games so that I can avoid the town centre in the aftermath, and all those sweaty men with beerguts, roaming the streets pissed and shouting Eng-er-land...
Now, when does Wimbledon start?

I agree that my enthusiasm for international football has waned over the years, but I'll still watch it. I fear though the usual repeat performance of England playing like Barcelona in qualifying and friendlies only to crumple when the pressure comes on.

The funny thing is that the Brexiters push to undermine democracy yesterday with the rushing through of many crucial Brexit bills without debate has backfired. Firstly parliamentary sovereignty was handed over to the government, secondly the Irish border amendments were approved. This essentially keeps us in a single market and a customs union (read what Ken Clarke and others are saying about it if you don't believe me). To stay in those means we have to keep freedom of movement and regulatory alignment. This happened without debate and is now legally binding. Brexit in name only in other words.
