This is not 1966

A truly obvious statement. However the English media would almost have you believing otherwise.

Euro 2016 is here. England have qualified for the final stages in France. As ever, expectations are high - quarter finals easy, maybe the semis or even the final. Nah, forget that, they'll no doubt win. It's England!

They progressed to the last 16 with reasonable ease. However, they failed to win their group, coming second to Wales. So, as you can imagine, some fans who expected victories all the way were a little upset. All fans think their team is invincible, so no major drama there.

So what should we expect? On the pitch, probably some decent football. Off the pitch? Well, that's a different matter. It's only be a matter of time before the pundits start harping on about 1966. How England deserve to win, etc, etc. Inspired to resist this backwardness, this site will look at 1966 from a different angle and hopefully explain this insane obsession.

Euro 2012
England, as we know, and are 'occasionally' reminded have, in the past, won the World Cup. They believe, and expect to do it again. Well, noone is holding their breath waiting. Now they have qualified for the final stages of Euro 2012, a notable improvement on Euro 2008. Can they win this time? Let's see.

A light-hearted look at England and their international trials and tribulations.

We found some interesting creations relating to the England squad. Some of these are cool, some not so cool, but they are all well worth a look.

What the 'experts' have to say.

Jimmy Hill, Alan Hansen, Terry Venables and the like. Some of them know what they're talking about. Others think they know it all, but show themselves up as prize gibbons.
