they'd definitely have won at least one more trophy by now
Got shot down. Rightly so. He's properly Welsh and was not eligible for England or summats.
-something about his parents-
ended up going with the welsh side of the family in the senior game
He was only included in the 'England Schoolboys' team due to going to school in England. Welsh parents, born in Cardiff.
Can you IMAGINE though? Would have solved England's left wing problems for the last fifteen years.
and him siding with his mum?
check out the compilations on Youtube of him then try to find any other 'top players' compilations that are anywhere near as thrilling
witness hagi from the corner flag.
It is not definite.
the lack of trophies was more to do with the lack of quality in other areas and poor coaches if you ask me. Sven too defensive, Venables did well, Hoddle alright but made lots of mistakes, Mclaren a load of bunk ect ect
Giggs is Welsh and was born in Cardiff he only played for England schools coz he was in school in England. By the same token you could have argued that Owen should have chosen Wales, but he was clearly never going too. So its a moot point, the same argument might be made about Bale in future....
so players were getting in because of profile rather than form.
McClaren wasn't the right man for the job - he could've been in a few years time but he's blown it now.
Hoddle wasn't too bad apart from going a bit mental and hating disabled people that one tiemm
You guys didn't win any trohies in his career and he didn't give a fuck for wales. plus, he's not even english.
"Lawrie McMenemy, then coach of the England under-21 team, checked to see whether Giggs was eligible to play for England but discovered that Giggs had no English grandparents, and was therefore only eligible to play for Wales"
for England and keep your hands off our Giggsy wiggsy or any other players that would be good enough to get in your team, er Bale, Bellamy etc.
Why don't you cast off your miserable, stained cape of ancient provincial neurosis and JOIN USSSSS in footballing union?
Together, we can take over the world (with a couple of your midfielders).
