    The only surprising thing is that people are still surprised that England really are an average team and not the fantastic,world beaters we like to think we are.

    The fact that even after all our glorious abject failures and pathetic showings that England fans can still be arrogant and condescending towards other nations is also unsurprising.

    It's painful listening to and reading England fans and media discussing who we would play and who to avoid on our way to another historic win!

    I guess once we (presumably) qualify tonight then we'll be the best team in the world again?


    That's been England for at least the past 50 years. It's been like watching Brexitball.

    There is only Harry Kane in the squad from Spurs this time, so no Tottenham excuse this time. Anyway he was the top scorer in Russia 2018.

    Tottenham since the 60's ie from 1970 have won the FA cup three times,  League Cup four times and UEFA Cup twice,  okay no Championships but hardly failures,  not like say West Ham.

    Thanks for that. However my first FA final cup memory is Spurs beating Chelski in 1967.  Comparing them to West Ham is no excuse. I'm almost old enough to remember when Burnley and Spurs were still rivals.

    If you look at a list of Euros winners, England are such a glaring and obvious omission that's in reality it's pretty embarrassing that we've never won it.


    When you consider the Netherlands have had better teams, it's not such a glaring omission.

    England's only success was achieved without Spurs players, although with a former Tottenham player in charge. Since the early 60's, Tottenham have been serial failures.

    The lack of welcome or respect for new franchises among Sydney RL "fans" is the biggest obstacle to expansion. No celebration of, or commitment to, the growth of the game. PVL`s dismissal of "rusted-on AFL states" is very much in keeping.

    True, but new AFL teams get the same treatment from Melbournians, even those from traditional Aussie rules states.

    Brisbane’s version of western Sydney would be the western corridor, Logan and Ipswich etc. No?

    Are you not mixing the firehawks up with the jets who have changed their name from the bombers?

    Sorry to be pedantic and late, but Logan is in the south of Brisbane, Ipswich is more west south west.
