From the night England went out of the Euro qualifiers we have not heard anything else but this! I think the way that the media are dragging this out is pathetic.

I'm not one for saying 'its only a game', I follow the game close but for god sake, WE GET IT!

"England has no international football presence....."

Being half Scottish and brought up in Scotland some might think I'm being bias but why doesnt England just raise their heads, accept the fact that they didnt make it and move on, the Scotts, or ROI aint moaning and they had a harder fight!



Rant over!

No you are not the only one Andy.

I have thought for a long time that professional football is a greatly overhyped game with overpaid players and a huge media machine driving it along.

Maybe they will now realise that professional football is not as important to as many people as they thought it was. :rolleyes:

Those who understand need no explanation, those who don't... don't matter :thumbsup:

Some people say that football is a matter of life or death & that's ridiculous. I can assure you it's much more important than that

Not qualifying for the Euro's is a massive financial blow to the whole country.
Like it or not it's a big story !

What made me laugh though ( apart from having a tenner on Croatia at 7/1 ) was the fans getting interviewed afterwards saying that it's ruined their next summer holidays ............... Eh???

The tournament will still go ahead, they could still go and enjoy the feast of football that will be served up. Maybe it's just not the same unless you have the blind hope that an underperforming, underachieving shower could actually play like a team for once ! I love international football - at it's highest level it's a joy to watch. It certainly hasn't ruined my summer.

There is talk of a one-off Home international tournament possibly happening - that should be fun !

It's our national game, Football is massively important - it's just a shame that it's taken so long for everyone else to come to the conclusion that I've had for years - - - England aren't really that good at it !

The thing is the only other news around is quite depresseing and is bad news for the government at present.

The trivial news about England football team takes the attention away from things like lost disks of sensitive information and slowly heading towards recession.
