    I laughed for about 5 minutes when they scored their first goal

    Under the right manager England have a great team

    I'm so glad they didn't get through

    it just knocks them off this massive pedestal they had themselves on

    :lmao: :rofl: :lmao:

    Sorry *wipes tear* No wait - I'm not sorry...

    You have the same population as France - they got through just fine (Allez les Bleus!)

    Edit: OK the UK and France have the same population, roughly, but not England - but Croatia draws from a smaller pool of nationals and they got through - it is a piss poor excuse whatever way you look at it.

    I second that emoticon.

    England fans are such bitter, sore losers

    The England team are a bunch of prima donnas that believe their own press!
    The problem I have is if they win, for days,weeks,months,years, all you hear is England this England that.... wooopy shit for England.
    A bit more humility and a bit more pride and even I would congratulate England if they won.

    Yeah I hate everything that surrounds England

    it's why I don't really support them and why I didn't want them to qualify

    was genuinely gutted for Scotland though

    I think we all support the underdog that is there by effort. It is a pity Scotland lack some top key players to push them over that brow:mad:

    McFadden has been really impressive for them, he's a much better player than I thought

    but yeah they lack the playmaker, a bit of flair, definitely showing promise though

    I was talking about sports in general....

    anyway, it's only a game AND I'm scottish so what do i care!

    only 5 years until we REALLY show ourselves up at the Olympics!!!

    England's talent pool is just as good as it has been for the last 10 years or so, and that's the problem. Most other nationd are constantly improving, but we're too static.
    There's such a slim margin between the top 10, 20 maybe 30 teams in the world compared to what there used to be; England are now merely one of the pack. :frown1:

    the attitude on youths playing football in this country is a shambles

    I went to France and their youth systems are amazing

    they have all the facilities you could want, we have nothing

    that and the rise in obesity and laziness

    the future is only worse

    Don't get me started, I'm 38 I work as a bricklayer on site and I can jump over the head of the young guys that are coming into the game....:mad::mad:..... I find them very disappointing. They look at you working hard and give you daggers cause you remind them of how lazy they are.
