Re: World Cup fever anyone?
Bit retrospective this really, (not quite necro though) but, looking a Englands pretty shit performance, isn't it time we had a British team, ?, Wales Scotland and N I, are way too small to ever compete on a world scale, now that football is so global, and if we were to add the talent pool they have, to the England team, it may just be enough to make us a serious world cup contender, the England team badly lacked a true world class, match winner, Bale would have provided that and you could probably say that about Ramsay too, and imagine in previous tournaments adding Giggs, perhaps the worlds best player at the time, to the Robson team of the 90's, would that have made them world cup winners, ?? sadly, we'll never know, and even before that, the impact of a, Strachan, Best or Dalgliesh, on what would have been a true national team, I think we in Britain are far too clannish, there was never even a mention of the Germans keeping sending East and West Germany after re-unification, despite their separate league structures, they go there to win and make sure they give themselves the best chance of doing so and we could learn from that...

"This is my rifle, it's just a toy one, there are many like it, they're toy ones too, without it, i'm £250 better off, without me, it gathers dust in the corner, we're just big boys playing soldiers, lets try and remember that" play fair have fun.
