Agree with every single word in this

Just leave it at home at this stage Toohey. For every odd laugh you get you'll get five more thinking "another group of tosspots", or saying it even after a few pints. Lugging a flag around is a pain in the whole too, have to get there early to put it up too, and yourself on crutches. Can't see the benefit. In any case, a wall of green looks much better than us all standing behind or draping ourselves in tricolours

I'm not getting the whole flag fascism here. Let the lads do what they want. Who's to say what to put on a flag.

I'll be bringing a plain national flag and a flag of the providences with me, but I do find the odd comical flag quite funny. Scundered for the "not here to take part, here to get langered" flag though.

That is what I would expect from a man taking a flag of the four providences. Or maybe you just type with a Dublin accent.

Not sure what you're implying here, but I'm not from Dublin. Are the dubs known for their liking of the 4 provinces flag? 

Edit: now realise the spelling mistake in the original message.

Posted this on the other thread with the article but relevant here as well.
There are some seriously sh*t flags shown to be fair. You'd have to wonder what sort of halfwit would find the Keogh, McCollum or Morrison flags funny. The Father Ted ones are embarrassing as well. Without meaning to sound like a fogey, it used to be a case of only being able to get basic flags printed, the combination of up to date printing techniques plus the social media generation desperately looking for likes is a pretty grim one. No quality control going on at all. I don't think you'll see any other country with such an attention seeking selection of flags on display. The long hard dick of Ireland ffs? Really?

I remember when I started going to Ireland matches with my Dad, he had a Tricolour with "Clondalkin" written in black marker on it. All that was ever on flags back then was Town names and football clubs. He ended up giving that flag to a barman in London that he knew from his school days after the England match in Wembley in 1991. There's probably a bar in Clapham that still has it.

I'm not going to leave my flag at home because people on ybig told me too that's for sure I think my flag has relevance to the team and is half clever and somewhat funny conpared to others.

It's not the worst of them. Should there be a 'h' in it though, it's Jon Walters, not John.

It's not the worst in fairness and probably hard done by he included that one. Still, most don't find it funny and it was the first one shown on that article which is basically calling you a pack of clowns, so will be automatically associated with that. I fail to see the upside in bringing it. To get a photo behind it a get a few likes on facebook or what?

Bringing it for a laugh and to add colour every where we go weather it's on the trains etc not for a Facebook like also as said previously in the thread to show appreciation for Walters as he did have is covered and hopefully he can have us covered in France too

Live in Clapham, unfortunately have never seen an Irish flag with Clondalkin in black marker on it, do you remember which pub the barman worked in?

Most definitely do find his funny. It was all over the place on social media when it first came out and 99% of the comments about it were positive.

Just shows the mentality of some of the fans travelling to France. You find it funny because it was all over social media and it got positive comments? So fcuking what. This is an international football tournament not the European Facebook Championships.

Due to emigration and visa issues I cannot leave Canada to attend the Euros but I certainly don't remember needing a sh1t flag to have fun and bring colour to the place in Yerevan, Skopje, Andorra or Tallinn. As an owner/part owner of a custom flag, I get there's in-house jokes but 99% of the ones going are horrific. My flag is the Rock n'Roll Kids flag. You may not like it but it's somewhat relevant had you been in Yerevan or Skopje. The Richie Sadlier one is very good because it's witty and relevant

As was pointed out in the Tweet Titanic sunk and DeLorean flopped. Probably not great examples to be putting on a flag anyway
