That last lot (the ones who talk about 'the footie') sound like Arsenal fans to me Chris.

i don't care where Lampard went to school. He is a worthy footballer.

If England did win it, would the remarkable Mr Crouch be the tallest bloke ever to win a WC-winners medal?

He'd certainly be the worst dancer to do so.

Too many exhibit the "wrong" sort of nationalism around this time. I drove past a house that had four cars parked outside. Each car had a St George's flag, there were bigger flags emblazoned on the windows, etc. Some individuals just need to calm down

I find a (not surprising) correlation between those exhibiting the above traits and welfare benefits.

Because there is a difference between patriotism and blind optimism, I can say the following: I don't think there is a reason to worry about England winning the WC. The favourites are Brazil, Argentina, France, Germany and Italy/England (in that order). Unless there is an upset in the build up, that is the order of animals in the football jungle.

"I find a (not surprising) correlation between those exhibiting the above traits and welfare benefits."

Haw haw haw.

You'll find that there is a greater correlation between those exhibiting the above traits and a willingness and an ability to produce most of the wealth you enjoy, and do most of the dirty work around your manor Curious.

And a greater correlation between those exhibiting the those traits and being a better shag than you are, ... er... you ponce.
