    Club over country, in my opinion. I would probably kill each and every one of you here if Satan guaranteed me Spurs would win the premiership next season.

    The people who don't care about the national side don't care enough to moan...

    I just don't like the way that a lot (not all) players don't care, hence I don't care about the national side. Additionally, you follow your club side every week, England once every now and then when international weekends get in the way. Gah, I hate international weekends.

    If hell was to freeze over and the footie side was to win something important, I'd be pleased, but I'd be happier if the Rugby side won on Saturday - and I care about Rugby once every four years.

    Club>Country by a reasonable distance. The guys in your club should be some sort of family, while it's an honour to represent your country you shouldn't abandon these guys.

    Can't think of one supporter that would rather see Australia win in International Rules as opposed to their club winning a premiership and if they did they'd be mad although obviously the example is pretty poor for many reasons (first off being it's not the same sport).

    Quite true. Awful example.


    Country > club every time.

    'Cept in rugby league. There's virtually no international game there, so Saints come first.

    Just because I care more about my club doesn't mean I don't care about my country. When I could, I spent thousands of pounds trawling the country watching Tranmere, some games there was 100 of us there, you feel you know all of the fans, the players start to recognise you. Doesn't mean I'm not passionate about my country, but I identify more with my club, my hometown club.

    I realise that your post may not have specifically been aimed at me btw (then again it might have!)

    Can't see him being too pleased TBH as it'd mean he'd need to buy a pair of ice-skates to get around & they must be a bugger to find for cloven hooves.

    Country>Club, i'd take England winning a WC or European Championship over United winning the premiership, champions league or matches vs Liverpool.
