    Don't think 2010 will be anywhere near as good as 66. Long and Gilmour will leave huge gaps and I just don't know if Eastmond is ready yet. To do the doouble like in 66 is probably too much to ask. At least that waste of space Cayless is gone though.



    ...oh. I'm sorry. The title misled me. I didn't realise you were talking about unimportant stuff.

    I don't think there's anything other than cautious optimism amongst most followers of English football. We've qualified at a canter and have a solid first XI, albeit one with some obvious flaws. How this gets translated into "We gunna win world cupz. Lol" I don't know.

    Anyway, oddschecker has us as third favourites, which may be slightly OTT, but probably does recognise the fact we've already qualified where teams like France, Argentina & Portugal haven't yet and might not in any event.

    Spain's odds are laughable. Can't wait for them to get knocked out.

    Brazil should be miles ahead of everyone else, then England, a bit of a gap then numerous European sides.

    Can only suppose you've forgotten the absolute arse-raping Spain gave you not so long ago.

    Spain are clearly the best side in the Europe at the moment by miles. Have been since the Euros. Sure they have a reputation for choking, but no moreso than England.

    The 2-0 win? England had a second XI out there, pretty much.

    I think all objective viewers would have to rate England amongst the favourites. They have a starting XI as strong as anyone in the world and seem to have psychological issues more than anything else. I think Capello solves a lot of those.

    Wouldn't be surprised in the least if they win it. I reckon Brazil, Spain and England are the favourites.

    Ikki weighing in with words of support for England? Do you support us in footy or something?

    Brazil were the champs, Spain were awesome and England had basically the same squad but younger. Wasn't a ridiculous prediction TBH.

    In a WC, regardless of how good you are, you'll need that bit of luck. Few WCs have a favourite just steam-roll the opposition.

    Nah, just the truth. And, I am sure I've said this before, I reckon England have the worst set of fans in the world in football. Dead-set. Read a lot of your media, blogs, forums, etc and think while you have a tendency to rate some of your players highly there is always an opposing faction in your support that go even more over the top in criticism for that same player. So a tiny bit of praise will get lost in there anyway .
