    I've ticked better than that, even though it's clearly not true. Just for cheap laughs when it gets righteously seized upon. :)

    Nah, that's the point. I'd suggest that there is absolutely no point beyond which any 'evidence' of English arrogance won't be desperately seized upon, regardless of how blatantly it's taking the piss.;)

    Of course, I mean we are all basically neanderthal apes hurling chairs around European squares and singing "INGERLUND" loudly in the faces of the unfortunate Portugueses that we're drowning in Trafalgar Square for beating us on pens. How could possibly be expected to have mastered sarcasm, let alone the fact that England are utter dross.

    so 17 england fans, not one genuinely defending the proposition that england are among the four best teams in the world.

    ericjarvis give a feck for the feckless

    My take is that, currently, Spain are a cut above everyone else, with Brazil a fairly distant second. After that there's Germany who aren't consistent enough to count with the top two. Then there's a batch who are all pretty even. Argentina, Netherlands, Italy, France, Russia, and yes, England. So 4th-9th

    The ranking is based on how good England would be if they could be arsed!

    Speak for yourself. I'm more than happy to be the lone voice of truth. Don't tar me with your brush of moral cowardice.

    Rankings are maths and maths don't lie. I'm sorry if some people don't like the truth it lays out for everybody to clearly see.

    "By a peverse mathematical ranking method incorporated by Fifa, are England the 4th highest team in the world" Answer: Yes

    "Does this mean we are 4th best (better = performance in a theoretical tournament involving all participants)" Answer: Hell no.

    Fez909 um...

    Can't see why people are getting so worked up over this. All it says is that England have been the fourth most consistent team over the years the rankings take into account.
