you can like and follow both those teams, and they are WE to your mum and dad, but for patriosm and birthright terms, WE is the country of your birth and where you have spent all your life to be precise. . . and that is FACTS not fucking rascism sir.

I'm a big cricket fan, England One Day side is awful at the moment Sad

As for the whole "We" argument, I'm Irish, and support Ireland in Football, Rugby, Athletics, anything… But for Cricket, it's all about England, and when referring to the team, I say "we"… I'm a sports fan, it's what "we" do

my parents pay the hosiptal bills with their taxes. so in turn, we are paying ourselves.
i dont really ate england, i wouldnt live in any other country, i just like seeing england lose, as when they win, everyone gets such a boner and become far too excited. and then proceed in fighting, beating their wives and drinking. stereotypical yes, but reality in many parts of england.

How can you say that you dispise the country you live in (granted not your exact words, but I definitely get that impression)?

why would you stay in such a place?

As Noble says "please advise?"

Im Indian and follow England full stop wherever they play.

It vexes alot of my mates but my view is i was born here, i live by this country's rules so im british, not english so to speak.

Follow England all over the world on the piss.
