    According to a friend of mine who's from the UK but lives here, chavs are what we describe as bogans.

    From the descriptions on CW that doesn't seem to be the case to me though.

    Chavs are unique to the UK and possibly Western Europe.. Pietersen does not fit the criteria of chav, although he is trying very hard.. Its interesting to see how he's changed since moving there..

    I'd love to see England implode further as an ODI side under Pietersen's ego.. Great player, dire person.. To be honest haven't their been reports about him being disliked by people other than me? In the England camp?

    I don't see how he is trying hard to fit the criteria of chav tbh...though as I said earlier my definition seems to differ to yours

    The shaved head, the bling, the british accent.. Okay he's not yer ****in street corner chav, but its a spectrum, and one that he's moved along towards the Chav end for quite a while now.. We have fewer football hooligans in the UK now, but more chavs.. I guess it depends on your definition though..

    Similar in some respects, vastly different in others.

    Yep. Journos like making-up stuff to talk about, especially when England are being thrashed hollow. Makes it easier to get around the truth of "beaten by the better team".

    Not quite, pretty good for a white chav. He would have to throw on a blue yankee fitted, G-Unit/Jordan sneaks, throwbacks and he'll be good to go.
