Its been 40 years since they did anything of note in soccer WC. They
don't have
any tennis player of repute(other than that Tim Crockman who sucks
anyway).
They are shit in cricket ODIs. They hardly get any gold medals at
Olympics. In hockey
they are as good as nothing. Compare this to their neighbours Germany -
a world
class sporting nation. Even Aus is not far behind. Why only England
sucks????????
And even in economy, Eng sucks compared to their West European
neighbours. And
they don't want to join the European union. When will they shed their
hollow arrogance?

You leave Tim Henman out of this.  He's the best quarter finalist that
England has ever had!!

I know it's bad form to reply to this sort of thing, and for that I
apologies to the ng, but it struck me that England's hockey team are
playing off for 5th place in the world championships, which is hardly
'as good as nothing'.

Replying to Saar Shridhar's posts are one of the joys of life, don't
refuse yourself the pleasure. I also wonder when England are going to
join the EU. I suppose its after they jettison pesky Scotland and
secede from the rest of the UK.
And have you heard of Sinn Fein, you dork?

Addenda-1. When will India become any good at cricket? I suppose when
they jettison all maha Maharashtra morons, and forbid the consumption
of beef, and declare all denizens of Gujarat state persona non grata.

2. I have noticed that Don II has now morphed into plain old 'Don'.
Might we soon see Don0? Perhaps negative integers? Will SNI then
disappear into a black hole or something?

not far behind germany as a sporting nation...

*especially* for a sport whis is probably 10th - 15th most popular
sport in the country.

BTW in Football we are according to the FIFA ranking the 4th best team
in the world, in Rugby Union we are the World Cup Holders

Oh and we *did* win the Football world cup the last 2 times it was
played... The gay World Cup <G>

I am trying hard to compete with the low standards set when hordes of
certain
kinds of people support a moron like Darell Hair.

Australia rules field hockey, Germany is not far behind.
Germany gets lot of golds in Olympics, in recent years
Aus also has started to get lot of golds. Aus rules cricket.
Germany is up there in soccer.  Both countries produce
good tennis players.

The point to be noted is that England has continuously
declined from where it was in the last 3-4 decades.

I forgot to add that even in war, England always hides
behind American asses. Could England ever have fought
a lone battle like Germany did against US, Russia, England
and other European allies in WWII? For right or wrong, Germany
had the courage to fight it all alone.

All England has done till now in history  is to send its explorers all
around the world and have them exploit local people and loot all the
riches of that land. Besides, it has produced some good inventors
and poets/writers like Shakespeare. But even in inventions, the real
useful ones like penicillin, telephone etc have been done by Scotsmen
not Englishmen.

and field hockey is a sport of gobal interest is it? at least if you
use football which is perhaps the only true globally competed for game
you can argue that Germany is a lot higher than Australia

Aus gets more medals despite having many fewer people, and has done
for years.

Come on don't go 3 or 4 decades, surely Englands decline as a sporting
nation can be traced back to 1882

Earlier atleast there were some icons like Sebastian Coe but now there
are
zilch except if you count that hyped up moron called David***ham.

Probably England is just facing Karma after doing what it did to
countries around
the world in South Asia and Africa for 300 years. Nobody today rates
England
in anything.

And did finish fifth, which is an excellent result.  I watched the last ten
minutes of the England v NZ match, which England won 4-3 with a goal in the
final minute, and rather enjoyed it (I don't watch much hockey).

However, you are deluded if you think the teams playing off for 5th to 8th
place are where it's at.  Or indeed the top four.  Or even 9th and 10th.
The real action is Sunday's playoff for last place between South Africa and
........ India.

Except you - if you didn't rate them, you wouldn't bang on about them so
much.

Having brought the Nazis into the thread you have invoked Godwin's Law
and have automatically lost the argument.

I wish that it could be closed as per Godwin, but he did not compare
anyonw with Hitler or the Nazis, so it can't.
