I've lived in Scotland all of my adult live, nearly half of my life has been spent here. I properly love it. My kids have all been born here and I regard them as scottish.
I've always thought scotland has a problem with looking forward, it seems very hung up on the past, and not always in a good way. One of these hang ups results in the undercurrent of anti Englishness, particularly in sport.
So many of my friends today have been on Facebook cheering on the welsh, they are genuinely delighted that England lost. I think this is really sad, sport should be about cheering the winners not the losers.
Maybe I am naive but I just don't understand it. I'm pretty sure this type of attitude is not shared with other home nations (but happy to be told otherwise).
Not for a second suggesting that this is full on racism, I've never knowingly been subjected to racism. I'm just interested to hear the alternative view on this, why do so many scottish people really dislike English sports teams? Does anyone else think this just reflects really badly on those people who are so negative?
