'Why England Lose is an Ars? Wenger of a book - more thoughtful than most of its rivals and, by football standards, positively intellectual.' The Times

'It is rare, even after the great leaps football literature has taken in the past two decades, to find a book that takes the breath away, but Why England Lose does. Every page engages, entertains and challenges the lazy assumptions that still dominate football, not merely in its punditry, but all too often in the way that clubs are run

At last, football has its answer to Freakonomics, The Tipping Point and The Undercover Economist.

"Why do England lose?"
"Why do Newcastle United always buy the wrong players?"
"How could Nottingham Forest go from winning the European Cup to the depths of League One?"
"Penalties - what are they good for?"

These are questions every football fan has asked. Why England Lose answers them. It brings the techniques of bestselling books such as Freakonomics and The Undercover Economist to bear on our national sport. Written with an economist's brain and a football writer's skill, it applies high-powered analytical tools to everyday football topics.

Why England Lose isn't in the first place about money. It's about looking at data in new ways. It's about revealing counter intuitive truths about football. It explains all manner of things about the game which newspapers just can't see. It all adds up to a new way of looking at football, beyond cliche?about "The Magic of the FA Cup", "England's Shock Defeat" and "Newcastle's New South American Star".

No training in economics is needed to read Why England Lose. But the reader will come out of it with a better understanding not just of football, but of how economists think and what they know.

I believe "Why do Scotland fail to qualify for major tournaments" is even cheaper.

"because they are *****" is pretty hard to expand into a book

At least we don't think we're gonna win everytime and get egg on our face. I wonder why some of you lot, I won't tar everyone with the same brush. Always bring Scotland into things football related, when you fail. Lets face it we have the population of about the same size as greater London.

Another funny thing as well you look at the two big clubs down south Liverpool and Man U, most likey their greatest ever players were Scottish in Dalglish and Law. Shanks built Liverpool and Busby build Man U.

Nice sportmanslike reply there!

Scotland arent """ just they dont care about the game as much and dont spend anywhere near as much on training etc.

Not a fair comparison really.

Tarnish? :w00t:

You did think you were going to win the World Cup in 1978 :whistling:

I cant find that one on Amazon...

Similarly - just read this on News24

"England are flying back into Glasgow rather than Heathrow - to receive a heroes welcome."

What have you never heard of tarnish? Look it up in the dictionary. Yes 1978 and when you look at the squad we took it's easy to see why it was thought and look what happened we got egg on our face. The key difference however, is that we learned from our mistakes. England never do!
#12
Yes I have indeed heard of the word 'tarnish'. I haven't however heard of the phrase 'Tarnish everyone with the same brush'. There is I believe a phrase 'tar everyone with the same brush'. Perhaps you are also a Cliff Richards fan, or one who shops in Mataland. Either way, it is not me who needs to be looking things up in a dictionary or other reference book.

So tell me more about ending up with egg on your face...
#13
Unlike your team! “It seems attack is the best form of defence” :w00t:
So can u explain what went wrong with the English team without blaming everyone else! :gift:

not many england fans thought we'd win anyway

Suppose every region may have different ways of saying things. As for Cliff Richards no thanks and Mataland na again no thanks, why go on a personal attack. As for ending up with egg on the face, well I don't think I need to explain much you obviously understand the concept.
#16
Me on a personal attack? That's rich, it was you that told me to take reference after YOU misquoted a very well known saying!!!

There was no personal attack from me, just pointing out that you should ensure your use of the English language is perfectly correct before condescendingly telling others to go check a dictionary. That, obviously would leave you with egg on your face, a concept that I understand very well thanks all the same, I saw it right here.
#17
This thread us now a pissing contest between lakeside & wulliedufc :w00t:
#18
No I'm done, I just don't like people telling me to go and get educated when they can't even quote a well known saying properly.

Sorry for taking it off topic.
#19
only relevant for football fans seeking some closure i suppose...
#20
Did England get beat then?

How did that happen? I was reading a copy of the Sun dated 2/6 and it states quite clearly that they are going to win.

I am a Scot who has lived in England for 20 years - they are a great nation who have, unfortunately, been saddled with the worst popular media and tabloid press on the planet. To judge the English by their media is to judge all Scots by the drunk guy at the bus stop insisting you eat one of his chips.
#21
Well in my wee town in Scotland thats how the saying goes, another saying goes 'go **** your self' :)
#22
Typical, how did I know you would end up dragging it down to the gutter...

By the way, ask a few people in your wee town what the wording is, don't tell them first what you think the phrase is, or you'll look a prize tit.

Ok I'm really done with this ignoramus now, let him "tarnish" with his brush all he wants.

lol i like how you have brought that argument into another thread, just fyi i also came across the phrase as tarnish with the same brush and not tar, i think it is a little six of one half dozen of the other in that argument as quite a few people use that as the saying and i had never come across tar with the same brush, but it makes sense and it would also make sense that tarnish is probably an often used derivative from that as the original saying, so id stop trying to be all high and mighty about that particular saying, it is not becoming of you
#24
Don't tarnish me and him with the same brush!

I know Dundee well, been to Jimmy Chung's many times and next time I'm in town I'm going to ask a few locals... ;-)

Life's too short, ATB Mr Wullie.

I'm no fae dundee or anywhere near lol, Sayings change from place to place, I should really have thought about that before I used it.
