Wolf, I remember from 86 onwards as well.
I guess I just think England should be a team that makes it to more QF, SF and Finals than they actually do.
We have always had the players, but I think the managerial appointments in recent years, picking players on reputation and who they play for and the fact the English Press loves to try and hinder us at every given chance has made it harder to do so than it really should be.
Now we are in the Semi-Finals cue the English Press coming out with stories that will disrupt the team. Hope I'm wrong about that and I am glad Southgate before the World Cup started called them out on it.
