FIFA World Rankings

Post by Capitolhill » Thu Jul 17, 2014 8:37 pm

Rnk Team
1 Germany
2 Argentina
3 Netherlands
4 Colombia
5 Belgium
6 Uruguay
7 Brazil
8 Spain
9 Switzerland
10 France
11 Portugal
12 Chile
13 Greece
14 Italy
15 USA
16 Costa Rica
17 Croatia
18 Mexico
19 Bosnia and Herzegovina
20 England
21 Ecuador
22 Ukraine
23 Russia
24 Algeria
25 Côte d'Ivoire
26 Denmark
27 Scotland
28 Romania
29 Sweden
30 Venezuela

Pretty much at one would expect. Although if I were Bosnia-Herzegovina, I'd be miffed being placed only one slot ahead of England.

It'd be funny if Scotland passed England....

Lend Harry your log-in, shunter, or are you just thick?

The latter, I feel.

Don't get chippy with me son. You know im right. No one in England gives a flying fuck about Scottish football. But the average Scottish fan would support a team of rapists nazis and zombies over England. That's the trademark Scottish fans approach. As unfathomable as it is true. God knows where this bitterness comes from - but it's there

So fuck?

Is this unique or is there a similar tribalism in all football? I certainly wouldn't expect a Spurs fan to wish Arsenal well in a Champions League game, for example.

We're a smaller nation and not perceived as a "threat", I wouldn't expect your fans to give a particular fuck about us... you reserve that for your hilarious whining about Der Germans. Was a delightful finish to the WC, listening to football phone-ins where England fans tied themselves in knots trying to decide who they least wanted to win, Germany or Argentina.

It obviously matters to you in this instance though; given your "cunt" refrain, and the predictable "chippy" chat... it seems that you suffer from the bitterness you see in others.

The funny thing about these rankings is that we don't expect to be higher. You lot do. You've had years of easy rides in tournaments because of the seeding system, despite usually doing fuck-all, and despite doing your best to make an arse of easy groups like in 2010. Now it's finally caught up, and we have the comedy of seeing you seeded where you belong.

It's the sense of entitlement that amuses me most. We even had that moron Adrian Durham on Talksport recently claiming that all previous WC winners should get automatic entry to each tournament! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The US is ranked too low.

We're way better than Costa Rica or Mexico, and better than Portugal.

And let's ask the Germans whether we're better than Brazil or not.

Except you, as evidenced by your posts above.

Having done so badly, I'm not surprised you'd seek to backtrack now though.

Er Milty- it's quite clear that I don't give a toss about football or Scotland - but nice try anyway!

Where?

it's a fact that scots will suport anyone over England - but equally it's a fact that we don't give a toss

Good luck to the scotch - that's what i say. It would be nice if the scotch could return the sentiment. But let's face it - that's a level of maturity that's completely beyond our heroin smoking, deep fried pizza munching unemployed, dieing at 45 northern brothers.

If the scotch do not vote for their independence in the referendum, they should integrate a Team UK.
