Murray: I'll support whoever England are playing against

What a twerp.
A lot of scots say stuff like that, but the way the english press have hyped him, he ought to be a bit more diplomatic. Half the fans supporting him at wimbers will be english. I never could stand him.

thats the british press btw. and thats half the problem, on this island, everything is perceved to be "english". The welsh and scots get a raw deal sometimes and thats why a lot feel this way. I can totally understand, being half english and half scottish i can see both side of the coin.

Thats true, and it really pisses me off. When a welsh sportsman does well he's suddenly 'british', but when an englishman does well he's just 'english'.
I always support Wales, then scotland, and lastly england, but I don't want england to lose when playing other countries!
Murray can support whoever he wants, but he's a public figure and he should think before opening his fat mouth.

I read it the other way around at first and was like...what's the problem.

Now I see what he said...ah well...can't blame him, can you?

No.

If thats how he feels. I often cheer for whoever england is playing against.

I don't want england to win the world cup cos we wouldn't hear the end of it, I mean some people still think 1966 was yesterday.

And after the rugby world cup although the aussies were beaten which is a good thing.

Well it was not like that in rugby the last time the two nations met huh?

He is not bitter about that...He probably can't stand the English, because they think Britain is them first and then everybody else or possibly only them.

I have been told how the English go on and on about 1966 and all their succeses all the time. I wouldn't be any different if I were Murray.

No.

Amusing, but the same can be said for the other way round where English people cheer for whoever the Scots are playing. It's just a natural/kind of friendly rivalry

and most Scots aren't bitter, we just love watching you hype yourselves up into a frenzy of expectation, only to crash and burn

He's got every right to say it, if he likes... it may come back to bite him of course I love Andy Murray. He's got a great sense of humour, and he is brilliant to watch. Plus, he has a fabulous head of hair
