Do The People Of The Scottish Football Section Know The Meaning Of

Are you allowed to have an opinion in the scottish football section?

No, you're not, just be grateful we don't live in a world run by The Oracles. Women would have ear plugs in 24/7 in case they heard some filthy man describing something sexual& everything you look at would have to be check by his holier than thou self, before women's eyes would be allowed to gaze upon the filthy world, we all know women couldn't handle the real world. After all, he is "a gentlemen" & not a sexist arsehole.

Scottish people what is that big puddle called?

What's that massive pile of crap in Glasgow called?


Do people in Ireland and scotland use the term "Football" or "Soccer"? I have heard that people mostly say ?

in ireland we call both gaelic football or british football, football but it really depends on the person and what area they're from. personally, if i'm with people that also follow gaelic football then I would just call that football but if i was talking to people that don't really follow gaelic football then i would call it Gaelic. I never use the word soccer unless i'm talking to people from different countries and only ever hear the word soccer from foreign people or when there is some confusion as to what sport we're talking about.

i've actually just done some research, my friends from the west of Ireland (Mayo and Kerry) do use the word soccer. My friends from Donegal use the word football for both sports. My family n friends in cork, the very bottom of ireland are like me n only ever use the word soccer to avoid confusion when talking to foreign people and from my memory, people i know in the north of ireland normaly say football for the british sport and gaelic for the irish sport although sometimes people that don't know anything about the British sport use the word soccer.

basicaly, if you want to sound like you know what you're talking about you should never use the word soccer

oh yeah, what charlie c says about joking is correct as some people might use the word soccer as a novelty kind of word

Can British people tell who is English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh, without talking?

Yes. Speaking as a British person of Caribbean descent; when they are in a group you can often notice the difference.I would say the pop singer Gilbert O'Sullivan looks like the typical Irishman. Welsh girls tend to be better looking than English girls, blondes with good skin. Lots of Scottish girls are skinny with a boney face, tend to have a smaller bust than English girls. There were a group of young women sitting near each other on a train I was on, heading for Edinburgh. I could tell they were all Scottish; from past experience based on what Scottish women look like.English girls from the English counties of Kent and Sussex tend to be better looking than your average English girls. Don't know if they are partly French, Dutch and Flemish; not knowing where the migrants from Europe 300 or so years ago settled when they moved to the UK.Gilbert O'Sullivan, typical round Irish eyes :Welsh girl, tend to have thicker textured skin than English girls :English girl :Scottish girl :Yorkshire women and women from north eastern England in general tend to look different to blondes from Wales. Visiting University of Leeds a few years ago some of them reminded me of “blonde librarians”, with their dead straight thin blonde hair. Must be the Danish influence !People from Kent with their rounded chins and good skin. Kent is a county on the south coast of England 20 odd miles from France at the closest point, Dover. The Battle of Hastings, AD 1066, was in Kent. The actual village where the war took place is called Battle, not Hastings. Hastings is near by :Women's Institute meeting, Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Notice the rounded chins of women on front row on the right:

What do the French think of Scottish people and Scottish Independence?

Anything that annoys England is sweet to a French heart. That’s why we encouraged American independence in the first place :)More seriously, there is a strong historical bond between France and Scotland as a nation, dating back to before it was part of the UK. Those of us who are old enough watched Quentin Durward on TV, others know about Mary Stuart (we know her under that name, you know her better as Mary, Queen of Scots). More recently, your Sean Connery had the good taste of marrying a Frenchwoman. And we always love it when Scottish football and rugby fans come over to see a game and march in the streets or ride the metro with their kilts and bagpipes. We can’t help it, it’s irrational, we are biased in your favor. Except when the Scots beat us, of course!For the same reason, many of us felt sad about the Brexit, and were somewhat comforted to discover that at least, our old allies the Scots voted against it. We see Scottish independence as a way for you to remain in the EU in spite of the English - even though, as explained by Roman de Rafael's answer to What do the French think of Scottish people and Scottish Independence?, we are suspicious to independentists in general.

What does "moving the chains" mean in football?

It means the team has made a first down. The chains are on the sideline and measure exactly 10 yards and have a staff on each end. If the offense gets a first down, the chains are moved to the point where the ball is and that team gets 4 more tries to move the ball another 10 yards.
