    They also didn't have to qualify for '66 or '70...

    Pretty certain that graphic is classing Home International goals as friendlies rather than tournaments. Charlton got 16. I'm not raising it as a 'who is best' thing, but doing so underrates Charlton's goals. Home Internationals were certainly as 'competitive' as most qualifying games. Broadly, the opposition was weaker than the top international teams, but a lot stronger than the weakest.

    I used to bloody love the Eng V Scotland game in the home internationals - one of the few live matches you would ever see on telly. Some nostalgia on the Home Internationals here, even if it is a crappy ntl page:

    Our attack options look good, midfield solid, defence worrying, keeper solid.

    Quarters or semis would be success.

    England were poor against Spain, which was an indication of how they might fare against the top teams. But yes, all the components are there for what might come together as a reasonable team. I'll go with 'guarded optimism'.

    Reviving an argument from this and subsequent postings a couple of years ago (last page), he's now on 18 in 26 for England. :cool:
