World Cup 2002

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I know that England will walk the World Cup this year.

However, if the usual conspiracy happens and the referees gang up on us, or some Argentinian scumbag cheats (again), and we get knocked out...who do you think will win?

And would you include Emile Heskey & Steve McManaman in the England Squad?

    Hand on heart, I don't think we'll win. Quarter/Semi's i think.

    My bets on either the cheating Argies or the damn French (again!)

    Heskey isn't up to international standard nor MacManaman for that matter.

    Right I'm off to compose another football topic! Keep'em pealed!

    I wasnt going to say anything and ignore this but I just couldnt

    DONT TALK GOB SHITE!!!!! conspiracy?? referees ganging up?? What a load of pish, you havent won since 1966(god we here about it enough thanks to the BBC)cos your team has played badly, at least us scots can admit that were shite.

    A poor supporter blames everything else bar there team!!

    Hopefully english supporters will be able to go to matches without starting riots(oh wait, thats not your fault as well!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG alt="image" SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0"> )

    The French squad is looking like the mutts nuts. If England don't make it it'll be France. Mark my words.


    Well go on then, mark them!

    Like were going to pay any attention to what you say?! your Scottish you know fuck all about football! <IMG alt="image" SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

    I dont think Heskey should be in the side i dont rate him very much.

    If we get through the group stage then i think we've got a good chance of winning it. if we dont win it then i reckon the french might do it again. I bloody hope not though

    Yes am scottish and proud to be it <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0"> And yes we dont have great scottish football teams, therefore meaning we cant say much really but what I do know is when people are talking shite with conspiracies and all that shite, theres nothing worse than excuses for poor performances, as I said before at least we can admit it that we are shite.

    I would wish england good luck in the world cup but I know that we would never hear the end of it thanks to the BBC and that would make me go nuts.

    So I hope any other team bar england win <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    You scots, you get very easy qualifiying draws everytime, you never win anything, your domestic leagues are rubbish. So when you blab on about 'we admit we are shit' you have no option, everyone knows you are shit. We however are not shit, maybe not the best in the world, but we compete with the best in the world and so we have no reason to admit we are shit do we ? there not excuses or consiracy theories they are explainations

    Japan all the way!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    To be honest I'm only saying that 'cos I've got a £80 bet with my Danish, Italian and English mates as to whose team will progress the furthest.

    This year it's gonna be so fiercely contested that it's hard to call, but my own short list would be France (duh!), Brazil, Argentina, Italy and Spain, so as usual it'll be Europe vs S. America.

    Gobshite. My post was tongue in cheek. I know that we won't win because we don't have the team yet. Difference is that at least other nations fear us (and I don't mean the fans) rather than see us as an easy away win <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    As for our fans, I think you need to look abroad. English fans are by no means the worst. The Dutch kill eachother, the Turks stab anyone, the Italians beat people with sticks (and that's just the police!). Look at Albanian's throwing lighters at England players, or the Poles throwing coins at them...

    However, we started the whole organsied violence thing and so I guess we should take some responsibility for what has happened since. If you listen to the police reports on recent 'Englishmen abroad' violence you will see that they are usually reacting reather than started the fights - guess when you have a reputation...

    Of course, the Aberdeen vs Rangers match wasn't exactly a good example of well behaved crowds either...

    have none of the papers produced one of those timeline things yet that predict england are destined to win cos we won so many years ago? i have no doubt they'll be about soon.

    hope france dont win - twice in a row is a bit too much. but hey with lauren blanc in their defence ( if hes still there) just punt the ball up, he'll duck and get owen to run in behind and score. should work everytime.

    heskey and mcmanaman are both dodgy characters on the pitch as they rarely make a useful inmpact on the game. but then neither does andy cole. fowler looks good at the moment though.
