Guest DarkMatchJobber Posted June 12, 2007 Share Posted June 12, 2007 Whether it's a World Cup or European Championship tournament we are always listed amongst the favourites to win it along with the likes of Italy,Brazil,Portugal etc... but what has our football team actually done since 1966 that makes us such a great team??? We have a manager who is just about qualified to lead a mid-table Premiership team and just like his predecessor has a habit for continuing to select players who continually under-achieve in a three lions jersey,it just really bothers me that people in general have this feeling we are good enough to win these tournaments. Maybe the over-expectations of the nation are what has doomed past England managers who probably realised the moment they took the job on that we were far from favourites to win any tournament regardless of what they may have said in press conferences. What I want to know is do any of you agree with my thread title that disillusionment is the English football team's main weakness? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
