‘Just saying’, I do wonder what the reaction would have been if I, as a white bloke, on that much eulogised day England fielded a team with no ‘white’ players, came out and said I cannot or did not really support them with such an ethnic line up. I remember back in the stone ages when football was about merit.

Euro 2022: Young players talk about diversity in England's squad [Link]


Again for me there’s racism, which I believe this actually falls in the category of, which undoubtedly has no place, so why is something like this promoted on a national publication???

I’ll never watch the 100m final again.

With diversity there never seems to be an end game. You never hear stories congratulating England on the over representation of certain groups in certain sports. For example, there's never a story such as, 'England unlikely to be that racist as it's football team is 40% diverse' or 'England's rugby team proud to have had many players of other races'. It's always how racist everyone apparently is when someone says so about something. Then the band wagon starts rolling. There is no recognition of achieving anything. When you read the news or watch Sky Sports News you'd think people are chucking bananas or hurling racist abuse. I haven't seen that for years, I would say decades but did see it in Ireland about ten years ago. Maybe others have? Certainly seems rife on Sky Sports News.

How could an all black team be described as English without changing the definition of the word?

Don't you just love it when the Western Media keep banging on and on about how 'Racist' Football is in Eastern Europe.

oh regale us with the halcyon days of the Soviet Union when 'insert country name' fielded a multi-culti kaleidoscope of different players.

And what about the shocking lack of white players representing countries in Sub-saharan Africa ? Gary Lineker must be furious ?

I noticed some of the criteria for being institutionally racist seems to be quota based. That has not got any basis in merit or reality. Cricket Scotland are going to have to get some diversity figures and women to pretend they like cricket and sit on their board. That's going to be fun. I liked the new Chairperson (man). "Yes, we're definitely racists, sorry about that." Comedy gold.

With all due respect, I think that is childish at best.

Identifying as ‘English’ and wanting to represent the national team should be the only requisites after legal compliance in my book.

All of my grandparents plus the old man moved to England, mum was born here, and I happily throw on a green shirt on certain occasions however I was born in lewisham hospital, fortuitously survived and identify completely as English just with a very proud acknowledgment of my Irish heritage.

Being ‘Black’ or anything else has nothing to do with the price of fish in my book. If you want to play for the national team and are good enough, that’s all that counts. Start criticising a team that should be picked on merit or claiming you do not identify with it based on race is racism in my book or at least certainly not of any sporting merit.

I nearly burst a lung cheering Mo Farah on to Gold, I didn’t b!tch and moan as he ‘didn’t represent me’ as in fact he did, no matter what he ‘looks’ like.

Very easily by just about everybody, who isn't a racist.

Read this, which looks at this in quite a wide way. There is no mention anywhere of skin colour:-

England, pure bred Anglo Saxons. Practising long bow on a Sunday after C of E service. Brilliant.

So can you explain to me who are the Japanese?

You might want to look up the word “deracinated” as well.

Don't be so bloody obtuse.

You can call yourself what you want, but Northern Europeans have a set of distinct genetic characteristics. They also have a history, a culture and a tribalistic self interest and kinship like everyone else.

Why shouldn't we expect our national team to be like us?

Why do we listen to other races banging on about role models when we aren't allowed to keep our own?

You are clearly happy to be replaced.

I'm not an expert on it but I can give it a go:

Followers of Shinto, Samurai, eaters of sushi, killers of whales and dolphins, a totally different race to the Chinese. Saved by the divine wind. Only defeated by underhand western tactics. Lovers of the emperor. Like small hotels, paper walls, the latest tech, strange cartoons and martial arts.
