    England Thread

    England Thread-england-badge-2.jpg

    This thread is to now direct all discussion of the England national team into one, concentrated place that can therefore be organised and also a hub for team news, events and possible issues that may arise for the England players, coaching staff, Football Association, fans (etc). Please refrain from argument as this thread will be used ahead of the UEFA European Championships during the summer of 2012, and for future usage, such as the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 UEFA European Championships to be staged in France.

    Thank you.

    Nice OP... like to start off by saying that Fans should really temper down expectations ahead of Euro 2012. Our best player is suspended for two games. A new coach has just come in. We dont have a captain and oh yes... our best midfielder has not kicked a ball this season.

    Personally speaking, I would be happy to get out of the group stages. Anything more would be a bonus

    I was thinking more along the lines of Jack Wilshere

    Scholes has also played a fair amount

    well he nearly went to WC 2010. We can only hope that he gets asked to go to Euro 2012 and says yes

  8. Anything past the group stages will be a bonus.

    Although no doubt people will be 'expecting' us to reach the semi-finals or final or something stupid, it probably won't happen, and this should be all about stepping-stones for WC2014.

  9. Good idea for a thread.

    Slightly optimistic about the upcoming Euro's. Not really the insane amount of pressure of WC2006 or 2010, see no reason why QF/SF are impossible.

    To be fair, most people I've talked to have been muted about our chances of success. This can only be a good thing.
