Thread to prove England fans aren't as delusional as many suspect.
not as fucking delusional as fifa are
could've sworn I made this a public poll :angry:
I've ticked better than that, even though it's clearly not true. Just for cheap laughs when it gets righteously seized upon.
If you click the number of votes for each option you see who voted.
No, of course we're not. Fifa are laughable.
Now you've explained it you've undone the magic.
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.
i saw the headline earlier and i thought they were on about the ladies team.
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.
<Reels it in on the other thread>
I saw the thread title on new posts and thought 'god, does ed ever sleep?' then I read it and it wasn't him.
But then I saw the other one.
Typical England. Shifting the blame to someone else.
Theyre not even the 4th best team in Europe.
They're not even the 4th best team in England.
so 17 england fans, not one genuinely defending the proposition that england are among the four best teams in the world.
How do you know they're all England fans?
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.
Because they know England are really shit at the moment! Ipso Facto (I think!)
"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.
COME ON ENGLAND!!!
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.
stick to bash England fans with it, innit.
Four votes for England being a top three team.
