So are we. I probably speak for a fair number of American fans who see England as our most natural Old World rival. From our point of view, we don't get to play you enough. So it should be a treat.

I will never forget the '66 final. I was fourteen, and on the way home from a West Country holiday. All the cars were honking everytime England scored.Speaking of "scoring". I was in the back of a Triumph Vitesse with a young lady named Christine, our mothers were in the front. Suffice to say we were "asleep" under a huge beach towel. Ah, those were the days......"-)

Likewise I'll never forget 1966: I was only ten so plenty of time yet for another win! Bring on Germany.

Five posts!!!
Only five before '66 gets a mention...

(You know up here we bet on how many seconds it takes a commentator to mention '66 - commentating on any match! So, actually, well done on the restraint Surrey! )

Good luck though. Should qualify nae bother out of that group - although the USA beat you guys 1-0 last time you met...

Have you seen the group Brazil is in? Now that's a real 'group of death'!

The last time we played the US we won. Do you mean the last time we played them in the world cup ?

(Mickey-taking aside, the save that Banks made when Law tried to lob him was really something. Forgot what a world-class keeper that man was.)

We could do with another like him now. The current crop couldn't keep bees.

Oh yeh, Banks was an all-time great.
Isn't it ridiculous - I can still name many more of the 1966 England team than I could the current team (which admittedly seems to change by about 50% each game)!
Soccer became so boring after 1966 that I then got married instead .................
Proves something?

It's an old thread from 2009, Steph. For some unexplained reason, something or someone has been bumping old stuff to the top. Gotta check the dates before posting.

Good morning smoke
I placed a very interesting topic in the political group. Would you like to participate?
Why do you think people are not participating?
