    They aren't in Euro 2008 and it's just possible we won't have to have wall to wall football coverage and flags on cars for a fornight, or however long it is....

    Come on Croatia!

    Hopefully they will lose and not qualify. Then there MAY BE?, some soul searching at FA headquarters about their manager and the teams he selects.
    But FFS, don't hold your breath.

    I can understand people not being interested in football, but I don't get the "I hope we loose" attitude.

    I can't stand rugby, but I am pleased when the national team do well even if I don't watch the game.

    trust me, as many of you know I work for SKY Sports (until the end of the week!), and often cover SKY Sports News.

    I get more than enough of the inane build up, so much that I probably won't bother watching, I'll take advantage of the lull in traffic!

    But it doesn't make me want the team to lose, you know what a good feeling it would give the country if somehow we won the tournament itself......

  12. No, actually I don't :blush:

    I know how the tabloid media and the TV news would go overboard about it.
    But 'the country' ? No, a relatively small part of the general population would be bothered.

    In much the same way as the Mail, Express and TV news are telling us that 'the country' demands answers about Diana's death...

    Well, we've not got any evidence to say, not for 41 years anyway......

    It is an increase in the inescapable media coverage that we dread. Reporting of football trivia is already running at near saturation levels. If football reporting was restricted to football or sports programmes, or pages, and given less news coverage there might be less of the anti.
