World Cup - (Football REALLY is coming home)

Recommended Posts

Guest jigsaw_puzzled_singh

Well now. It's difficult to concentrate on anything else right except football. My attention is sometimes sidetracked by the intriguing fight between Prokharkoo84 and Big Tera here but it's not long before I'm thinking of England all day after dreaming about England all night. These are strange times around west London too, when you can tell which south Asian is 'Sikh' and which isn't as they drive past simply by looking to see if there's an England flag or two fixed to the car window. To the Sikhs, England's exploits have really got pulses racing. To Hindus and Muslims...no so much. Interesting feedback from family in Canada too, where matches have been receiving very healthy viewing figures. Even before the first ball was kicked a couple of weeks ago England was by far the most supported country among Canadians, at 18% nationally (Brazil in 2nd place at 12%). What surprised me about that is the fact that Canada is extremely Scottish when it comes to family history in Great Britain and we all know how the Scots feel about England at the World Cup. But here;s where the waters get muddied a little: England is only the 4th most supported country in Vancouver and the rest of British Columbia (behind Brazil, Germany and Mexico) but by far the most supported nation in Alberta (where Ukranian / Russian / German heritage is most prominent). The conclusion I draw from that is that Indians and Chinese in Vancouver don't know sh$t about football, don't care about England, and base their football good wishes on the nationalities of Messi and Ronaldo. But , the stats also tell us something else. The connection between politics and football. Conservative voters in Canada were overwhelmingly fans of England while Liberals mostly supported Portugal and Germany. So that leaves the party of Jagdeep Singh, the main party of the Sikhs in canada; the NDP. Well, of all voters in canada, according to that angus reid survey, it was NDP voters who mostly said that don't care about the world cup and don't support anybody. 

Yes. Canada and Canadian politics is that boring that one has to add football to it to try and make it interesting. I did try. This, my good friends, is the time for every nation on earth to get together and revel in the excitement that football is finally coming home to the land of it's birth. Nobody likes the French. You know that and I know that. And the Belgians should stick to making chocolate and waffles. Croatia should just go back to being lovely little Croatia and the whole world will and shall unite by joining we UK Sikhs in proudly displaying our England flags on our cars, wearing our retro tight fit replica England shirts and rejoicing in the fact that Football REALLY is finally coming home.

at least sixty percent of Sikhs are Jat - genetically we are closer to Croats than Angrej:

This is why I root for Croatia. Plus I was acquainted with some Croats who were really very good people.  I kind of like the English language so if England wins, I'll be happy too - after all the game of football/soccer originated in England.

Lol at the poster above trying to present the dubious Crotian/Jat article as fact.

Less than 50% of Sikhs are associated with Jat ancestry as census figures show.

It is simple Hindutva propaganda to falsely associate Sikhs with being Jat.

Despite 80% of the Jat people being proud Muslims and proud Hindu's who revere the likes of Liaquat Ali Khan and Sajjan Kumar for the simple fact that most Pakistani Punjabi Jat's and most Haryanvi and Delhi police Jat's despise Sikhs (regardless of background).

The weird thing is that given that the primary founders of Pakistan were Muslim Jats like their grooming Mirpuri Jat Muslim brothers (and the previous incumbent Pakistani Prime Minister was a proud Brahmin Muslim (Nawaz Sharif) and most Muslim Kashmiri terrorists in India are proud of their Brahmin caste ... why this notion has crept up amongst east Punjabi's of Brahmin supposedly meaning Hindu (when in fact most Punjabi Brahmins are Muslims like Alama Iqbal and Nawaz Sharif and London terrorist Khuram Butt)?

funnyily enough it originated with lopped off heads being kicked around in China but yes the regulated game is from England ..in-laws Brasilian so it's first choice but then we also support England since the majority of us were born here...

:) Now that ^ has actually got a really good ring to it. I like it.

Let's break it down though: Victory-Glory son of Singh

(Ranjeet = victorious) (Slav = glory) (Singh = Singh) (Ic = son of)

Us? Loyal? To england? You obviously didn't learn your lesson. What did our loyalty get us in 1947? Or in 1984? Or right now with Jaggi?

Exactly Thank You that's a really a good and valid point to all the Sikhs that support this vile piece of crap land called england and call it their country.

Insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

Challo, this is just a mere sport. You can be forgiven for supporting a crappy team, but loyalty to country?? C'mon. What sorta BS is that. Next we'll be rallying for EDL and britain First because urrm loyalty init.

Bro that is so true the way that i have seen apne people holding the uk flag exactly reminds of the rallying for edl and britain first.

 

You are 100% right as this pure insanity as the viewers will not got a single penny from this madness. And its like a loop circle made for idiots done for idiots.

 

These goras will never expect our lot no matter if you have been a 1000 years in this wasteland and they always call our apne the p word. 

 

So i am proud to be a Sikh first then a Punjabi.

Very sad you feel like that :/.  In many ways I think it demonstrates how you have given up so easily and admitted defeat to the extreme right wing and that, I'm afraid, may articulate a deeper habit of consistently giving up rather than taking ownership of things. There are large Sikh diasporas in the UK, Canada, America and Australia. The Canadian ones are so proud of being born in Canada they fly their flag wherever they go and ensure the word Canada is even plastered all over their houses and vehicles back in Punjab. The American ones are extremely proud of being American. The Australian ones are extremely proud of being Australian. And then.....there is you. You, the UK Sikh who says he "hates" his country and "wants to burn his flag".

This, my brother is YOUR country. This, my brother, is a land whose inhabitants were brown just like you thousands of years before the first white man (immigrants) appeared on it (see cheddar man). This, my brother, is a land whose wealth was built by the blood, sweat and tears of all men and women of all races. This land is your land. Take ownership of your birthright....Don't hide from it.

Here, on the streets of west London, Pakistanis and other Muslims have not been flying the flag for England at the world cup because their loyalty and heart lies with Pakistan. Hindus have not been flying the flag for England because their love and heart sits with India. The Sikh, on the other hand, is a proud and loyal citizen of wherever he is. You see, this is the main problem with some UK Sikhs.....even after 70-80 years a great proportion are still insular in their outlook. Canadian and American Sikhs stopped being insular and started growing mentally outwards a generation ago and that's why they occupy positions of great political and economic power within their nations. This outlook is what sets us apart from Pakistanis and Muslims and makes us a great success in life wherever we go. I know, deep in your heart, you know that it is corrosive and mentally damaging for you to be 2nd generation England born and yet still want to "hate" your country and want to "burn your flag".

 

Anyway, back to the football: I would have preferred Belgium in the final (and Yes...England will reach the final) only because I have this horrible little feeling inside that Hugo Lloris knows a little too much about where Harry Kane will plant his shots. That's only a little worry though because the cheese eating surrender monkeys that are France will fold when faced with the English onslaught. They're sh$t, and they know they are. One nil to the Inger-Land.

Has anyone else noticed how watching France play is so much like watching England play under Sven back in the bad old days?  It's just like watching Barnsley. Defensive anti-football that reflects the water carrier character of Deschamps as a player. In a way then, I'm relieved it's not Belgium. This is a France that's there for the taking.  As for Sunday: I'm not scheduled to work anyway but if I was I'd definately be phoning my manager and asking for as day off because I have to go to the airport and pick up football as 'it's coming home'. 

Some great feelgood 'Sikh' stories in the media this week too. It started with that Sikh owned business in west London putting up England fans but receiving hate mail for it from Pakistanis. Because of that, social media have been full of stories about how the Sikhs are the greatest and most loved ethnic minority in the UK.  Then, a few days ago, there was the story and video of the Sikh wedding where everyone was singing and dancing to 'It's coming home'. Again, social media and news print were full of praise of the Sikhs and how we are so much better than other ethnic minorities.
