This is what we came for Rocky - this is why we’re here!

Speaking as a neutral, England vs Germany fascinates me. The English seem to care a lot about it. People who are actually from Germany don’t seem to care about it at all. Meanwhile, there are a bunch of American, Indian, and other Bundesliga fans who treat it like the clash to end all clashes, with the full fate of the universe falling on the outcome. How about everyone just watch the game to enjoy the quality of play, and stop worrying about how columnists in the Daily Mail or anonymous Twitter accounts will react to it?

Anyway, there are going to be other matches and once England vs Germany is over that paragraph will look outdated, but whatever. It’s an open post, what do you want me to do.

Match Thread Rules:

Absolutely no illegal streams. There are legal means listed for you to watch the game. Use those and don’t share any illegal streams in the comments.

Be critical, but not offensive. We’re all tolerant people; we all get frustrated at a bad call the ref makes or react to some foul that the opposing team makes. We encourage you to post your thoughts, just think them through before posting them. Keep things PG-13.

No abusing of other commentators or match officials. None whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Verboten, Verboten, Verboten!! We’re all fans, bear that in mind.

Express yourself how you normally would. We allow for profanity (within reason), but any sexist, racist and/or homophobic comments and replies will result in immediate blocking and banning of future participation.
