You mention the lyrics to 'Three Lions on the Shirt" which states England have had "Thirty Years of Hurt".

However that song was made 25 years ago.  It's now 55 years of hurt ............ and counting!

If scottish patriotism amounts to the inverse of English loss, then consider what that patriotism amounts to. One missed penalty in a European Final

you missed 3 not one.

Utterly pathetic
The patriotic hobby of the English backbiting due to the blatant incompetence of scotland

Missed 3, but only 1 more than them, so the difference was just one.

The same number of goals scored in totality in the back door scotch campaign

The English(Not all it must be said..but what appears a very VOCAL majority) are so immersed in their own arrogant sense of superiority they remain blind as to where the patently obvious schadenfreude mentality comes from.

For many it's nothing but neighbourly banter, have one in your eye. For others it's a constant that's rooted from the tragedy and scars that were dealt during imperial times.
