England in the 70s

Post by Stephen_Dedalus » Sun Jun 10, 2018 11:38 am

You think things are bad now?

Uh uh.

England failed to qualify for both the 74 and 78 World Cups - you may know this.

Did you also know they failed to qualify for the 72 and 76 Euros.

So from the 70 WC to the 80 Euros.....nothing.


And the cheek of Queen (We are the Champions) and the full back catalogue of Gary Glitter were there to rub it in.

What a depressing decade it must have been.

Oh, Brexit was a vote to return to the 1870's. My mistake.

You do realise this is the World Cup branch?

I see that you haven't registered to the WC league.

Still sulking?

We will have hit the 1870s when Rees-Mogg is in charge

Anyhoo...

I was on vacation in England during the 1990 World Cup, and was at the Buddy Holly Story in the West End during the Semi-Final against Germany. There were a lot of depressed people walking around outside when we exited the theatre.
