Oh I am so enjoying this thread. Please carry on.

good idea. With no significant international football coming up for the next 5-6 months, let's now consider the forthcoming programme of autumn rugby internationals.... ;-)

Nice try but Wales are playing Azerbai.. Azer... someone else on November 20th. That's the trouble with the English, just because they haven't got a game they assume that no one else is playing.

sorry, I had forgotten about that one....there are very few Euro qualifiers between now and March 29.

...long way to travel isn't it? What's the betting Mr Giggs reports a hamstring/groin/whatever strain a few days beforehand?

Rugby? Wrong shape ball pal. Wales are rubbish at that now instead.
17/10/2002 at 12:33
Look guys, this thread is not about rugby. Now please carry on about how England weren't very good last night.

Db,
don't start doing an impression of the archetypal sad Celt whose nationalism is defined by his anti-Englishness....
...OK let's stick to football. We've dealt with England's shortcomings last night. How will Wales cope with the sudden weight of expectation when they travel to Azerbaijan on November 20th? It's the sort of "easy-ish but not quite" away game they could very well end up losing 1-0 if they're not careful.....& that would pretty much cancel out the bonus of last night's win.

I agree but its not time for us to fall on our swords just yet. We usually get closer than this before falling at the final hurdle. Just let me dream will you. Wales haven't been the the finals of a tournament in my lifetime. In 1994 my honeymoon was in greece when I had been planning a trip to the US in the belief that we would qualify then.

...as I recall you came q close - fell over in the final home game against E European oppo - was it Bulgaria or Romania? & didn't you miss a penalty?

Also nearly qualified in 1976 for the European Championships but got knocked out at ¼-final stage by Yugoslavia over 2 legs.

Other than that, as you say....
17/10/2002 at 13:42
It was Romania and I didn't miss the penalty, that was Paul Bodin (why was he even taking it). I think we were closer to qualifying than you were though.
17/10/2002 at 13:46
Nor was I trying to qualify

Big up Aberystwyth Town FC and the Park Avenue massive is what I say.

How are Total Network Solutions doing nowadays and where the f*** do they play???
17/10/2002 at 13:52
Llansantffraid, nr Oswestry. Not as good as they were but not as bad as Oswestry. Lost in the UEFA Cup 12-2 to Amicka Wronki (Poland). I live in Bracknell so I know these things.

I did like the comment about Celt nationism Mike, being defined by their anti-Englishness - much the same as if your own team is crap, then hate the successful ones i.e. Man U & Arsenal, and gain some recompense that way.

I have seen most of the Arsenal games this season, and am only too well aware of Mr Floppy (ole pony tail)'s errors - on my part, it is out of loyalty to a good player who has now seen his best years that I defend him.

Sure, he has made some howlers recently, and I think he will announcing his international retirement now. However, that is no reason to try and rewrite the history books - he has been arguably the best goalkeeper of the current generation of English goalies in the 1990's and early 2000's.

Dare I mention Nayim?
17/10/2002 at 13:58
You just did.

Snoop,

....which isn't saying much. Goalkeeper has, alas, been one of our weakest positions (along with left side of midfield) since Peter Shilton started to decline in the late 80s.
