    If it works, don't knock it!
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    They are just following premier league players . They all wear bras when they are training.

    i am not into football so I have never known what that was all about. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Link please - I can not see how they can fiddle rules for a team so young.

    It doesn’t matter what the lads are wearing , they won well done lads
    I think these lads should replace the men’s England team, at least they played fo 90 minutes and never gave up

    As Andycp says above, they contain GPS monitors.

    This enables sport scientists to analyse the game afterwards and see where they were on the pitch. Despite being + or - 10 metres wrong most of the time, this is supposed to be more accurate than say, just watching :roll:

    They are also very useful for tracking sport science graduates. Their employers are able to see that they've covered the entire leisure centre with the floor polisher.

    I'll take the bait as well. Care to explain why a team representing England are not English?

    What you're trying to say is that "some of them are not white, so they can't be English".
    Take your head out of the sand and wise-up.
    @ Frank Wilson (probably not your real name :wink: ) You're probably not a racist, but your comments
    can be construed as coming from a racist.

    basically Strava for footballers then ;) they cant be that inaccurate though no-one would be using them if it was telling them the players spent all game running around row Z in the stands

    What I am actually saying is that an awful lot of them are dual qualified for other countries, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast and more and that football is going the way of rugger and cricket. It has nothing to do with colour more despair at how easy it is to wear a badge of convenience in sport these days.

    Awful lot?

    I did an admittedly quick check but could only come up with three in the squad born outside the UK. There may well be more, but that's not exactly an awful lot.

    Anyway as British citizens, whats the problem? They live here.

    Rooney wasn't born in the UK, he was picked in a potato field (probably a UK potato field, but that's another story.)

    Well, McEachron (the only name I see in the photo) sounds distinctly Scottish to me.

    Well, a few of them still acted like dickheads and got all aggressive when Spain were getting wound up and lashing out a bit near the end when they knew they'd lost. There was a lot of immaturity on show in that respect from a few of the England lot.

    Seeing as these players should be pretty much ready for top flight football at this age it seems they have a lot to learn (or nothing to learn, as most football players seem to have a default setting of "quick tempered, reactionary and self-righteous" with the "thick" switch toggled to "on").

    PS. I can't believe people are explaining what the bras are, it's completely obvious to anyone with half a brain :)

    To the nearest whole letter, half a brain is a bra isn't it?

    Obviously then seeing as I still have most of my brain I must be overthinking it. :D I will put this smilie in I cant find one with a middle finger in the air.
