Club v Country? And England Predictions

Club v Country? And England Predictions

Interesting talking point now the transfer window has closed is the old club v country debate!

Nivea are covering football at both ends of the spectrum, they are the official grooming supplier for the England team but are also involved with grass roots football in the The Great Football Experiment.

Then in-between, we have our dreams, hopes and fears in what for most can only be described as the roller coaster ride that is supporting our own team. Overload for our brains or what, and the ladies say we can`t multi task!

Where do you stand? Do you look forward to your own club games more? Do you prefer international football (whoever your country is) or are you drifting more towards playing the game or watching grass roots instead these days?

With the qualifiers upcoming, how much do your thoughts turn to your country?

The lads at Ivory FC (the great football experiment team) are predicting a 1-1 for England v Bulgaria... And predict a rout against Wales. Is it ever that simple?

For the prediction, go to: Will Takes On The England Predictions and feel free to vote on the poll and leave your prediction in the article comments (same logins as for your usual team site)

Let us know your thoughts!

Well being Danish, hence having a mediocre national side( the likes of Laudrup and Schmeichel are long gone) now replaced with Bendtner, whom even the Danes dislike and where only Christian Eriksen is a true gem, I for one do not look forward to the international games. I couldnt even get as remotely exited during the worldcup, as when United play PL games. If you have a great national side like England, then yes maybe it is a bit more interesting, but only the games where they actually play a decent team. In my opinion, and this is not backed by facts, the trend is that PL and CL are more interesting for us football fans than the WC and EC. I would personally prefer to watch the CL over WC anyday. Oh and get rid of all the friendlies they are utterly useless.

Friendlies really have no meaning other than bringing in revenue for relevant FAs

England a great national side nordkap?! Absolute 5hit and as boring as you like to be honest with ya. Individually the players are great but as a team they're awful. We've got a manager who encourages the most boring football imaginable, a real typical Italian and he can't even be arsed to learn the language! He also seemingly picks the worst possible players for the team, Johnson at RB, Green in goal over Hart, wingers like Walcott and Lennon who can't cross or pass and strikers like Heskey and Crouch who quite literally can't do anything and the football becomes completely one dimensional. Then you get the over-expectant deluded England fans and media who hype us to be better than we actually are then act shocked and surprised when we play turd. Then they use players as scapegoats, more recently Rooney, despite the whole England team being cack whilst the manager and other 'team' members let them get the stick and take no responsibility. I hate the national set-up and will pick club over country every single time.

The FIFA world rankings are a load of bull as well, how on Earth are we higher than Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay? We're ahead of both France and Italy but I can guarentee that if we were to play them we would lose.

England are a cr@p national team, but always seem to get a decent following - I will probably keep one eye on the game tonight, whilst doing other things, but when football is on my tv I always seem to watch it hehe
