    Might be surprised how many Scots will support England, alot of unionjack flyers, most of the Rangers fans will be supporting England i bet :)

    What puts most people of supporting England up here is the media, they hype, the constant reminders, im guessing most English people are getting sick of them bringing up the date 196.. I wont say it :o

    Myself ? ill be buying a Trinidad & Tobago top hehe

    I'll be supporting England despite not being English because I want to support the only UK side that qualified. I also support the Man Utd club players at international level and want to see them all do well.

    Thats spot on, I've started to watch England with the intention of supporting them and after 30mins of listening to commentators being totally biased to the point of farse, given up which is a bit sad.

    I hope England do well and if the media could show a little humility and even handed commentry I would be cheering you on.

    I wont hold my breath though :D .

    i am a die-hard Scot, from one of the roughest areas of Glasgow in fact, but i would like it note

    i will be supporting England in the world cup !!

    i really dont see what the problem is, i am brittish, but of Scottish heritage, and that kinda sums it up. Obviously if Scotland had qualified i would be cheering them, but they didnt (again!) so i wil be cheering any other home nation, ie. England

    go on England !!

    :)

    A lot of the Scottish media seem to be saying Trinidad & Tobago due to the number of Scottish-based players they have.

    Says it all about the quality of our leagues these days. :o

    Agree 100% with Gary, hell I'm actually half English believe it or not but I will not be supporting England in the world cup.

    The media is unbelievable

    Some Scottish fans will choose to support England which is fair play, some will choose not to.

    How many Spurs fans supported Arsenal in the Champions League? :D

    I'm a Belfast man. :) There's more chance of Gilly sitting in the Theatre of Dreams wearing a Man Utd shirt than N.Ireland playing in a WC or European Championship. :p I always watch and support England anyway since I follow a Premiership team.

    Didn't realise you were a local Tony :D I really wish we'd make an Ireland team that comprised North and South - ala Rugby and have the Ruby national anthem. So basically that'd be all the R.O.I. team and then Davis and Healy lol ;)

    Amen brother! Just look at how well the rugby team are doing. I think Healy needs competent players around him to show people what he's really capable of. I think the Irish F.A. fear change though. Like you I think it would be a positive thing and a step in the right direction. The football here really is pants. lol
