    Don't put any money on it, but euro 2016 could end up having a very British feel to it at this rate.

    It's Wales, so, no - no money being put down anywhere!

    indeed. plenty of time yet to struggle down the home stretch, and then blow it in the playoffs.
    I do think at least one of Wales, Scotland or the Irelands will be there though, which would be good to see after so long.

    especially if you can perm three of them into a finals group with England.
    Although on second thoughts, amazing at it would be I think it might bring out the worst on all sides..

    Scotland and Ireland are in the same group with Germany and Poland - it's incredibly unlikely they'll both get in.

    Wales should make it though I think. They've got a very weak group and some really good players at the moment.

    I think he decided on Cardiff born Bale.

    Well at least Bale could actually have played for England, whereas the idea that Giggs chose Wales is completely misguided. The only 2 nations Giggs could have represented were Wales and Sierra Leone!

    His English connection is only through his grandmother, and Bale has said, "It is an honour to play for Wales."

    :D

    Wouldn't Giggs qualify now based on him having been educated in England?

    He wouldn't have played for England anyway. The education rule is ridiculous anyway, but then so are most qualification criteria!

    Indeed. There's a certain arrogance amongst some England fans that any good Welsh players would have secretly loved to have played for England if only they could have been given the chance. Incredibly, most Welsh players are just happy to represent their country.

    I have far more respect for Bale playing for Wales rather than "choosing" England. Some players will have a genuine affinity with more than one country (John Barnes for instance, Jamaican born, moved to the UK age 12) and it's therefore a genuine choice, but born and bred in Cardiff to Welsh parents (but with an English Grandparent) it's not a choice. No matter how much i'd like the magnificent bastard to turn out for England!

    In the last 2 games the passion from Welsh players has been greater than anything I've ever seen from England players.

    I didn't see any of our players asking not to be play cos they were too tired!

    Not really. Just some English fans wishing that a couple of Welsh players were English.

    A couple of Welsh players, in Giggs and Bale, who would give you a much greater chance of winning something.

    Why are you so angry?

    Europe has a joint golf team, thus it should be the case for football as well

    We've got a joint rugby team too! Remember the tears from the English, scots and Irish when it was full of Welshmen last time?

    Meh, we'd have just made them shit as well through our press' signanture brand of overhype followed by unwarranted spirit crushing criticism.

    because you have wickets in cricket, you should have them in football. simple
