is this right enough???? i know it seems like a select few but mad all the same......if true.
World Football - Team GB duo targeted by Wales fans - Yahoo! Eurosport
The welsh are similair to the Scottish in that they class themselves welsh Scottish before British, bot have said they don't want their players playing for a gb team and bale is already in the ads for the gb team so I was half expecting it
Dont understand booing at all, thats stupid tbf, my opposition is down to the fact that for me the Olympics is about athletics, and football doesnt belong there, I dont see the point of it, and its all about the Welsh FA who are worried about losing their status, therefore they dont want Welsh players involved. I can see problems ahead if the four GB countries get the go ahead, because everyone knows the team will be about 97% English, which will cause the other FA"s to complain and winge no doubt.
Wales should be fookin proud.
Some fans are thick as pig sh!t.
If he wants to play then they should support him. What an opportunity to represent your country at the Olympics.
Narrow minded idiots who lack the intelligence to see from another perspective.
great idea boo the only 2 good players you got wales pointless country anyway
To be fair quite a few Wales players could make the 18 man squad, Bale and Ramsey are the obvious ones but Taylor is probably the best U-23 left back in the UK and I could see Allen making the squad as well. The other 14 are probably going to be English though can't think of any Scottish or N.Irish players that would be good enough (Fletcher possibly if the English FA don't want the likes of Parker playing after Euro 2012).
Possible Squad off the top of my head. Lots of good wingers/wing fowards too many to get them all in the squad...bannan after his incident I don't think would be included.
Sinclair/Carroll/Wellbeck depending on their seasons and if Pearce wants a "big'un"
these fans are as thick as shit. I mean ffs easily there two best players and i dont think its any coincedence that wales have moved up near enough 100 places in the world rankings since they both started playing. These fans should accept if they qualified for any major tourneys then they might not be so bothered. It's through there own countrys failings that they want to play for team GB.

Them playing in 2012 can only be good for wales. And let's face it probably there only chance to play in a tournament at internation level. It's a complete disgrace from the fa's of the home nations that they aren't backing there young players. Seems to me people are british when it's suits.
this whole GB team reminded me of yugoslavia.. always somebody complaining about something.. like we dont have enough of bosnian/montenegro/macedonian/slovenian/croatian players in the team and so on.. and look where that whole story lead us.. lots of bloody rivers ..
and yes... this could be very good for wales.. let them get a taste of a tournament .. maybe that will be even more of a motivation for them to succeed with wales..
I'm sorry if my question comes of as ignorant but why do these Welsh fans boo Bale and Ramsey yet be proud that they have teams like Swansea and Cardiff playing in English leagues?
that's very strange and unfair
the fans should be proud and support them, cauz it is, firstly, players' own choise (not the fans judge which country their favourites should represent in a SINGLE tournament), and secondly, a chance to win smth at least, bring up more motivation, experience and confidence to future games in their native country kit (Wales).
I would love to see Jugoslavia, CIS/USSR, GB teams on any single tourney, as football world lacks of these former football grands due to politics...
