Why have you chosen the flag you've chosen?

I don't know my arse from my elbow as far as football goes, so my flag is in honour of Brie and Camembert, foodstuffs of the gods.

What about yours?

loopylou6 Mon 16-Jun-14 14:57:41

Coz I'm English grin

HumpsforHalfMile Mon 16-Jun-14 14:58:24

Fair enough...

AmenGirl Mon 16-Jun-14 15:00:04

Cause I got given it in the sweepstakes at work. Boo sad

TheWholeOfTheSpoon Mon 16-Jun-14 15:00:38

More to the point, how are you all wandering around with flags on your names?!

NigellasDealer Mon 16-Jun-14 15:00:55

because I spent so long in Greece and can sing 'olympi olympi olympiakos' etc repeat til fade

DramaAlpaca Mon 16-Jun-14 15:01:07

Because I'm English.

I'd have liked an Irish one, because I live there, but they didn't qualify sad

Mrsjayy Mon 16-Jun-14 15:04:50

eosmum Mon 16-Jun-14 15:05:32

I got given it in work too! But I have high hopes for Algeria.

Go to your profile page Spoon, and you will find the option there.

AmenGirl Mon 16-Jun-14 15:07:26

Log in and out again then go to My Profile in the top right and the option should be there!

Netherlands will win!

BertieBotts Mon 16-Jun-14 15:11:13

I live in Germany smile

MollyHooper Mon 16-Jun-14 15:12:03

Because I love Berlin.

I always support Germany even though I'm Irish.

WowserBowser Mon 16-Jun-14 15:12:31

It's who me and dh are supporting after England

diddl Mon 16-Jun-14 15:12:42

What Bertie said grin

I am going to change willy-nilly all tournament.

I live in Italy. I am English, and my soul got left behind in Spain many years ago.

HumpsforHalfMile Mon 16-Jun-14 15:12:54

I like your confidence Mtwtfss. Are you Dutch or are you a footballing know it all expert?

Annunziata Mon 16-Jun-14 15:15:29

I am Italian... I hope mine works!

Because I wanted to retire o the Costa Verde but life got in the way.

BrokenToeOuch Mon 16-Jun-14 15:17:42

Oh I can't log in and out again, I've forgotten my password after the hoohaa a couple of months ago and it took ages to reset my stuff.

Hairylegs47 Mon 16-Jun-14 15:18:50

I thought Iran would be lacking support and it's the letter nearest my name and who knows, they might do well.

To wind DH up - he's French and thinks I should be supporting France. Or, at the worst, England.

But I wanted to support a team that has some chance of winning. Also, I love the name Schweinsteiger. I do hope he will be fit to play. I realise these are very shallow reasons and am suitably embarrassed.

There is one other reason which I'm not prepared to admit to.

I am ambivalent about football so have gone neutral.

HumpsforHalfMile Mon 16-Jun-14 15:23:08

Oh, but guess the only reason I care about now lastminute? wink

Do les bleus really not have a chance this time? (Seriously, I know nothing...)
