    Croatia will be worthy opponents but we should overcome then provided sven is gone.

    Sven has already agreed to go after the WC, but only after a huge payoff was offered by the FA.

    FA chief Brian Barwick is not ruling out the possibility of appointing an Englishman as the next manager of England. (Daily Star)
    That would be a disaster given the prospective candidates. *weeps*

    I have never understood why the UK is getting away with having four teams isntead of the usual one per nation.
