Zylberberg had better not appear. It is not welcome. It may drown in the spittle. And the argturd team had better not try that Malvinas Argentinas logo stunt they were talking about last year. It might be that they will travel from Britain to argturdland in bodybags. Oh, and whenever the British national anthem is played, we'd better see them all standing and singing respectfully.May 23rd, 2012 - 07:04 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

If that war memorial defiling arsehole has the gall to turn up I think he should be arrested at the airport and deported. People in this country have been jailed for disrespect like he has shown - why should he be treated any differently?May 23rd, 2012 - 07:16 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Hope Britain and Argentina both do well at the Olympics, they are both countries close to my heart.May 23rd, 2012 - 09:25 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Britain is not a country, I think you're confusing it with the UK, as it's so close to your heart I thought you'd know that...?May 24th, 2012 - 05:08 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Boovis, the UK is no country either, I think you are confusing it with England, Scotland and Wales. Strange thing, MAYHAP it's not enough close to your heart for you to know...May 24th, 2012 - 05:29 am - Link - Report abuse 0

Zylberberg should be banned from the UK (and the Falklands, obviously) unless he apologises most sincerely.May 24th, 2012 - 11:21 am - Link - Report abuse 0
I doubt that Zylberberg will be included in the squad. He seems to have dented morale in the team beyond breaking point. If he runs out against Team GB in the first game then I imagine there will be a lot of booing.May 24th, 2012 - 11:41 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Normally people wouldn't know or care but the way the UK media works you can be sure that everyone will know. There'll be extra cameras there to catch the moment. It will be like a self fulfilling prophecy.
@13 AJR, I think someone might have tweaked him on the whole difference between the UK and England at some point (you know, how the British Isles are the whole island group, and Great Britain is the biggest of the islands and the UK is the three kingdoms on GB plus Northern Ireland). Must be terribly confusing for someone whose country maintains both the real borders, where their country actually ends and fantasy borders which includes chunks of their neighbours as well.May 24th, 2012 - 11:46 am - Link - Report abuse 0

Zylberberg didn't make it to the national team
you want us to sing your God shave the queen 5hit ? that's like wanting the US team to sing the Norwegian anthem, island monkey
When I trained for a Falkland Islands half marathon on 1990, I trained a lot harder than that Zylberberg. He was training like a pussy. I didn't see him running up Tumbledown, but he looked out of breath went he just about managed to step on the war memorial on his way to insulting the dead. If he trained harder he might actually get somewhere as a sportsman.May 25th, 2012 - 07:42 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Actually, a lot of Argentinians look like that. Probably the result of some sort of Nazi effort to breed a new race of master sloths.

Well much stranger things have happened. The Norwegian 'Kongesangen' (the royal anthem) is the same tune as the alternative American anthem ' My Country, 'Tis of Thee' ... which is in turn exactly the same tune as 'God Save the Queen'.
Personally I think that all Argentinian athletes arriving in London for the Olympics should be bent over and subjected to a prolonged internal rectal examination by someone with extremely thick wrists :)
@26 Nice one Skare! I think that if they display Our malvinas fantasy shirts, everyone should point and laugh at them.May 26th, 2012 - 08:47 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
