    To England's FA, a question, why does France a country 20 miles away with a similar size population have a much more successful national team than us?

    Yerr, that's the question isn't it. Took France 20 years to rebuild, about the same for Germany after their shocking exits in '94 & '98.

    Problem is England have had their 'Golden Generation' well over a decade ago and squandered it. Obviously a lot of the blame lies with our domestic leagues, not only with the players' lack of opportunities to flourish but the fascination we have with foreign managers, that will bring with them a whole legion of imports.

    Yet mentality is where it's at, and England lack it. In fact, someone alluded to it recently, we teach our youngsters to enjoy football, others instill that winning is paramount. That's going to have to take a whole generational switch in mindset, but what hope is there if kids never get to kick a ball in anger for their clubs, and told it's the 'taking part' that counts :laugh:

    Just to annoy us. Like the time they sent their one carrier (the Charles de Gaulle) into port here when we had just scrapped our two old shitty aircraft carriers and were still building the 2 new super-carriers to replace them and temporarily they had the biggest ship of all European navies. Now we have the 69,000 tonne ones with F-35's and stuff, their heap of scrap is irrelevant so they have found a new way to spite us - football.

    They were also mightily pissed-off with our success in London 2012 and then coming second in the medals table at Rio. So they've attacked our Achilles Heel, via football. We need to kidnap Macron the Micron and do a Joan Of Arc on him.

    Given the results of the last 4 games I'm glad I spent the past 5 days oblivious about it all at Goodwood festival of speed. But from what I have seen during this World Cup I don't think that our young team have anything to worry about over the next 5 years or more. Southgate is building a very good squad

    You think this WC is indicative of normal service? :D

    If you think Brazil, Germany, Italy, Holland, Argentina, France, Belgium, Spain etc are going to just wait for England to catch up, then good luck with that! :laugh:

    The draw will never pan out like this ever again....

    Would you call the above statement negativism or realism? :eek:

    Apparently Ian Wright thinks we're all racists, plus the hundreds of thousands on the BBC's post-match polls who gave Raheem Sterling scores of below 5 points on average from 10. Not because he was consistently shit then Ian?
