Whom Are The Irish Cheering For This Weekend?

Post by ACD »

I know it must be difficult for you to have not made the knockout stages of the World Cup. Again. So I won't mention it.

I was thinking that it must be quite difficult for you also to get behind any of the teams as it's not as though you readily identify with any of them, although I could be wrong.

So who are you rooting for this weekend, Ireland?

I said before there was a ball kicked in the WC that it would be a England V South Africa final so it is England and South Africa for me

I was referring to the World Cup Semi-Finals. I'm not sure if you're aware but they happen every 4 years or so.

What about plucky, tiny, Wales? The Irish love an under dog, don't they?

It's a pity France are out, they were playing good rugby. I suppose I'll cheer on the Celtic cousins now. Although I've a soft spot for Rassie and this Bok side. Would love if the overall winner came from this side of the draw, as unlikely as that is. NZ vs Eng should be an amazing game, really looking forward to it. But couldn't give less of a shit who comes through.

To be fair, that's exactly how I feel at the end of every Pro 14 Season and have so for the last 10 years now.

They’ll only claim to be supporting Wales, and then I’m sure stick the boot in if you lose, and for years.

Do you not even Celt bro?

DAC if my team made a RWC semi final I would be focusing on that above trolling the supporters of teams who got knocked out after a dismal tournament. You want to kick a bloke when he’s down don’t be surprised if someone kicks back.

My wife's uncle told me that he would forgive the All Blacks for last weekend if we deliver a sound thrashing to England this weekend.

I'm not trolling, I'm genuinely interested, ahem, in whom the bored's most populous and passionate fans are getting behind this weekend as knowing you as I do....it must be tough for you.

For example, even though Wales are the worst ever semi-finalists there's too much recent bad blood for you to get behind us and I understand why you could never support England in anything.

Good use of whom. I always have to look that shit up. I think if the answer could be "him" or "them" then it's "whom", if its "he" or "she" or "they" its "who".

Obviously her = him. It's just how I remember it because of the "m". But it always f_cks me up.

One if the dumbest shit about learning a new language is they try to make you rope learn this kind of crap instead of just teaching you to speak like an uneducated child first and fixing the details later.

Sorry for the thread jack. Carry on.

I think England and New Zealand are the two best sides in the tournament and one of them deserve to win it so I'll be cheering for whichever of them makes the final.

On the other side of the draw I will be cheering for Rassie, Felix and South Africa this week.
