I hate of football but i'll tell you why we're **** at it, too many foreigners in english clubs. Come the time you have to stump up the home talent... there is none.

I don't think they have pride to play for England. Look at the way they sing the anthem. Other countries players sing it with more gusto. they get paid hundred thousand a week for their club and that is where their loyalty are. Gerrard and Rooney should be out, just bring the young ones and hope they perform better on Euro

We should change our England anthem to "Leaving on a Jet Plane" ?

I did think it was funny the Scotsman in the uraguay crowd :p

Although round my way a few people were letting off fireworks when England lost. Found that a bit weird

If you're quick you should be able to return your England shirt - might not get a refund, but you could swap it for another?!

They should have played the young ones in the previous Euro. Roy needs to resign i want to see someone in the management area shouting and animated.

Sad to say it but I blame the governments (past and present)

When I was a lad at school we had one afternoon per week for sports plus atleast another 1hr sessions which was mostly swimming

But now there isn't much emphasis on sports and the only real sporting initiatives are from sporting events after school (football clubs, judo etc) and yes there is also too much money at the top end of "the sport" and very little for the low end.

When you compare the UK to South American's like Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina etc there is more emphasis on the game for the younger generations - Ecuador population is 1/4 of the whole of the UK (Ecuador 15m / UK 64m) yet they can still come up with a reputable team that plays good quality football

a ridiculous comment .... the problem is in the development of skills in the age range of 11-16 year olds , not enough time money and structure inputted

If English players were any good then they would be in the best English teams would they not? Can't blame clubs looking elsewhere if there aren't any good English players about!

Actually, it's the managers and scouts at fault. The managers tell the scouts to look abroad and many of the managers are foreign and they automatically want foreign players. So foreign players get to play weekly in the premier league, then when England have international competitions, we get embarrassed.

Its the fans fault, Rooney told us so in last world cup and we ain't shown any improvement.

This country does everything the same, not interested in the locals just want to import the already trained.

You can't tell me its because of funding, poor countries have better teams, kids who've been kicking beer cans round the streets get signed. Here everything is for the privileged rather then the talented, parents having to pay for their kids to go to sporting things after school, send them to a really good one (I.e expensive) and they might be in with a chance if you can keep up the payments, thats pretty much it and the same ethos infects applies to pretty much all jobs.

send the rugby team next time instead.

Its the trade off we get for having the 'best league in the world'.

Take away sky and the obscene amounts of money coming in from other companies and our national team would benefit hugely from it.

Yup it's always those bloody foreigners to blame for all our ills :D

I was reading about FIFA's finances the other day and if I remember rightly, even if you get knocked out at the group stage, you still take home about £5m in prize money. Maybe they'll invest that in grassroots football rather than having to rely on Sport England, which recently cut funding by £1.6m:

England didn't even qualify for the 1974 & 1978 World Cups..... don't remember too many foreigners in our league then.

So you think the recession is a major factor?
