I am a bit torn on the losers medal thing. On the one hand itís respectful to your opening to accept the medal, congratulate them and watch them lift the trophy. You can be proud of your achievements and at the same time how to be better. Itís how I was brought up, in English schools etc and there is nothing wrong with it. Itís good manners and good sportsmanship.

On the other hand, me taking my medal off hurts nobody and itís a personal choice. I get that we have to set an example to youngsters but I donít think the younger generation gain much from accepting how things are done currently. Yeah show respect but dot accept a prize you donít want either.

Football? It's more than just a game but it's not life or death (but it can feel like it, Shanks!)

Have I ever cried over football? Yes, once. But more to the point, over Everton: 1994 home to Wimbledon, overcome with emotional relief. And I have had tears in my eyes on a couple of Everton's victorious occasions.

Like football. Love Everton.

Runners-up medal? Accept it in public - bin it in private!

Above all: take defeat as you would take victory - and you will be a man, my son

No idea what being a man is to be honest.

Kind of thinking needs changing. Confuses people and lowers self esteem as they working to  a made up ideal that means nothing and is not attainable.

Is toxic masculinity as big in other places as it is here?

Ugh fuck them. I say this as a middle- aged man who cries quite a bit.

Multitudinous examples of it all over our society, but you'll struggle to find a better one than the behaviours on display around Wembley way the other day.

They're professional athletes, who hate to lose. It fucking hurts when they lose, so taking their medals off is not a big deal IMO.
