When did playing for England become such a dilemma?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The papers are often full of stories
Of the Celtic nations ‘love’ for their national teams
The noisy Scottish support
The blarnie armies of Ireland North and South
The stoical and patient Welsh
Yet England
A once proud nation
Has turned from lion to pussycat.


really annoys me this club v country debate. how many people in england celebrated the ’66 victory…millions.. and they would again, apathy is because of constant failure over the years and overhyped players. ask Brazilians if they would give up one of their world cups for club.
