    Is so ad that it calls up a 31yo striker, the top scorer in the PL last year (of Englishmen) with a whopping 14 goals.

    Anyone with any serious expectations next year? Last 16 at best.

    Why did you not make them eat humble pie, seems the humble was already there. Bit of a waste making them eat their words when there was amble amount of humble.

    too true, alas for England there are no Paul Gascoignes, no David Beckhams left.

    Gascoigne was a very good player in his day but he always resembled a bottle of beer, empty from the neck upwards. As for Beckham, he is not missed England never came close to ever winning anything with him in the side . Should be a close game on Wednesday I wouldn't be at all surprised if Scotland win, however I am going for 4-1 to England

    Scotland suck, there are very few top players that even want to play for us anymore, Strachan is not a manager, he has failed everywhere, i fear the worst! Gazza was legend, so is Beckers, greatest English player since Alan Hansen

    Lets not go down this road again... Becks was quality, how many other Englishmen have won a top league outside of the PL?

    Only other player to go abroad and not flop was Steve McMananmammaman.

    Dude would get into the England squad today if he was still playing... tells you how bad they are now but still.

    I have never known England to be "mighty" .
    Must be a dilemma in Scotland ,do you hope England qualify so you can have a laugh when we fail { usually dismally ),or do you hope we just don't get there in the first place ?
    I heard robbers broke in to the Hampden park trophy room ,police are looking for two ginger headed men making off with a tartan carpet .

    any team that has won the world cup, can be called "mighty" even if they do it by bribing a russian linesman hope england make finals all the time...the bookies ALWAYS overprice who ever they play as a sort of act of patriotism, easy money to be made. will you actually be at the game? or you just another pathetic arm chair fan who shouts at the tv telling the manager who should play? btw friendlys what a waste of time
