Unrelated but this photo was in The Sun today:


A guy I went to school with is in it and he is getting so much flak because The Sun totally fabricated a story about scottish fans giving support for England 2018 and The Sun even went to the trouble of photoshopping identical english flags in Laughing out loud .

Laughing out loud such a poor photoshop aswell,

Anyone help me out here was having a conversation with my dad today about security in Russia for the world cup(exiting), he reckoned that Russia is a safer place then Spain. He said more trains have been bombed in the last 10 years in Spain then in Russia. I seem to remember there have been lots of bombings on trains in Russia yet i have no proof to back in up.

Anyone confirm whose right?

There were two suicide bomber attacks on the Moscow Metro in March this year, and another couple in February 2004 and August 2004.

The Nevskiy Express (which goes from Moscow to St Petersburg) was bombed in 2007 and 2009. We were on the Nevskiy Express in 2007 two days after the bombing, which focused the mind a little bit, listening for any unusual sounds and looking suspiciously at people. Ended up taking a massive detour because of the hole in the tracks (cool story etc).

There have also been a number of attacks not on trains (not sure if you or your dad are pedants), particular by the Chechens - see here.

I don't know how Becks had such a good footballing brain because he's so moronic off the pitch.

Scotland: Worst possible teams from below, completely average from above (average from the pot, not from overall standard) We'll completely fuck this up Laughing out loud
Wales: Ditto (as it has to be when your at the bottom Laughing out loud)
N Ireland: If you could pick easiest at 0% and toughest at 100% they must be about 70%
England: Laughing out loud Yet again the easiest draw possible, I'm not saying conspiracy but fuckin hell!
