Quoting Speedbird747BA (Reply 7): In your dreams buddy......but sometimes i seriously think i could have managed better than erickson. he must have been retarded......
Just look at us: we have won the last 6 games in a row, only two of those were friendly matches. And in comparison, England has tied against Macedonia 0:0 and lost against Croatia 0:2, also thanks to Paul Robinson allowing the own goal by Gary Neville.

Quoting Speedbird747BA (Thread starter): will i ever see it in my lifetime? of course! we'll win it 4 more yrs! any thoughts on england winning the cup?
Erm....I wouldn't hang hopes too high, you know...people have turned to alcoholism and worse for being a fan of Engerland AND being optimistic!
Quoting LTU932 (Reply 3): the title of having lost the most penalty shootouts in the history of Football
I thought they already ARE record-breaking champion in this funny little sideshow to football??!!
Quoting Gkirk (Reply 23): Sooneryou lot get that into your head, the less pain you'll be in the next time you get knocked out.
Oh now, not at all, keep hoping, pal. There's nothing like the sight of 80,000 red-faced Engerlish hooligans driving home bawling like little kids....I had the pleasure this year, already looking forward to watch it again in Austria/Switzerland...and in South Africa
I know it's only VfB but I like it!

: When will the "national" teams of England and Scotland be merged into a winning British team ?

: Falsch. Ghana had the youngest squad in the World Cup followed by the Swiss team.
: And look where they ended up...there are some similarities though....as far as penalties are concerned...
: We should have appointed O'neill as manager.

: Nope, I think Scotland will take that title Exactly Gavin! JG
: What title will Scotland win? The title of not qualifying for a World Cup yet again?
: I believe NOT! And WHAT do you expect them to say on English TV...or on German TV when it comes to our midfield after the first few games....Exactly!
: The number one reason England never wins. Their keepers suck.
