Qatar - if we really believe in everything we claim to, shouldn't we all agree we're not watching this?


Recommended Posts

The world is absolutely fvvcked - we’re exhausting all resources, the rich are getting richer, tensions are growing higher between nations, there’s underlying social issues in our own country and across borders.

 

Footy takes that all away, I’ll be watching it as everything else is grim as f00k right now

Didn't Watch the Euros Last Year tbh and it be the same for the World Cup as well. Only one thing matters to me  in 2022/23 and that's SWFC, not the Corrupt Sh**feast that is being staged in Qatar.

Might just watch games from the brilliant 1986 World Cup on YouTube whilst there's games on, if I need a fix. 

 

 

What if England make the final

I'm really not trying to be smart or edgy when I say I hope that doesn't happen.

 

Fair enough the country won't disgrace itself like it did last summer due to the time of year the final will be , but let's face it the last thing this country needs is Boris Johnson surfing a Xenophobic wave of football goodwill.

Ignoring political hijackings, I think we’ll go and win it, and in time it’ll be viewed as the disgrace it is. So England will be sullied by finally being successful. 😄😩

The treatment of gay people in World Cup host Qatar has been described as "absolutely unacceptable" by German football official Oliver Bierhoff.

 

Mr Bierhoff told German newspapers he was unhappy that homosexuality was still illegal in the Gulf state.

 

Fifa has said all LGBTQ+ symbols will be allowed in stadiums during the event. 

 

But Qatari authorities have appealed for outsiders to respect their "conservative" culture.

Id Qatar don't wanna portray a welcoming inclusive tournament then they shouldn't have bribed FIFA to host it

In fairness if fans were to take a moral stand on such occasions, nobody would’ve watched the last World Cup after Russias annexation of Crimea.

 

As Scram says, just because you don't protest about everything,  doesnt mean you can't make a stand on this occasion. 

 

I see some fans are using the 'Well you didn't protest against...' as a reason to have their usual En-ger-lund lads on tour beano.

 

Not for me, Clive.

I’m not actually saying that because fans didn’t protest one thing they can’t protest another.

 

I’m just pointing out how it could be perceived as hypocritical, especially given what the wests lack of action over Crimea has gone onto lead to.

 

Also I’ve no idea what an En-ger-lund lads on your beano is.
