everything happens for a reason



Following great proformances by the home nations over the last few days especially my own Ireland last night i watched England put a great effort beating Spain this evening... While in my local i was congratulating my English mates when i heard a complete idiotic statement on ITV...."if we beat spain then we must be world champions"??.. To me this is just another stupid media comment from breitish media who in my mind completely destroyes the confidence of the good brittish talent.
I watched that match tonight and yes England looked like a top 10 team but nobody come close to Spain.

Very true and only in this country could we have Piers Morgan making money interviewing Gazza having previously made money destroying his life!

1967: Scotland become 'Unofficial World Champions'

The 1966–67 British Home Championship was the first since England's victory at the World Cup 1966. Naturally, England were favourites for the Championship title. In the end, the outcome of the entire Championship rested on the final game: England v Scotland at Wembley Stadium in London on 15 April. If England won or drew, they would win the Championship; if Scotland won, they would triumph. Scotland beat the World Cup winners 3–2. The match was followed by a large, but relatively harmless, pitch invasion by the jubilant Scottish fans, who were quick to jokingly declare Scotland the 'World Champions', as the game was England's first defeat since winning the World Cup. The Scots' joke ultimately led to the conception of the Unofficial Football World Championships.

(With thanks to Wikipedia).

The difference then from now is that 'we' defeated England in a competitive match not a mere friendly as the Spain game was!! Ha ha.

Ah, Paul, that was 1977 (I was there!) but I was too short to climb up onto the crossbar and would have NEVER ripped up the turf!!

No problem Mario its been relaid umteen times since then, on the point of being the best team in the world, in 1977 then yes when you could kick knobs off the oppo maybe but now we are not as technical as the europeans/south americans, this is only in the department of diving/feigning injury, they should make them all play rugby league the most intense physical game around at the moment.

What do I do? I just cut the grass.

Any top team in the premier league would beat England and any top team in the Conference would beat Scotland.

Scrums in rugby union are a waste of time it seems these days anyway. No one gets one against the head. It's the rucks and mauls that frighten me.

Carefull and expedient use of the opposing tightheads left arm or hookers right arm can still win a scrum against the head. The official needs to be well distracted by the shinanagens of the opposition scrum half and the dropping of the bind unnoticed. It happens and I've seen it at International level.

On saturday leicster got three against the head against a good italian front row. one leading to a try. As an old tight head in the days when you could put people in the air a good scrum will win you games. Ian
