*None of those named are English

      Anti-immigrant feelings in England don’t extend to football. Footballers who are immigrants are embraced and sometimes English teams have no English born players at all with no loss of support. Thank you for your comment.

      Football is the home of the irrational immigrant haters. Their teams sometimes have no English born players but they love them dearly, simultaneously hating immigrants. Thank you for your comment.
