    Iberians 1-9 Holy Roman Empire

    Sounds like something from Monty Python

    Watercooler, change the record. You have an unhealthy obsession with England.

    It's okay. We English can stand the ribbing. Besides, you know... *cough* ... Canada.

    No worries, Canada has never been into soccer. But we are still good at sports we invent, wish I could say the same for England and soccer...

    As for why I would be posting here then, I blame England, got hooked onto Premier League while I was in London. Damn you English for making me fall for soccer...I mean "football".

    I just have a fascination with love-able losers, like the English team. The land of fish and chips made me fall for football, yet their national team is so lousy at it. That contradiction is a source of interest for me.

    Blame royalty. They wanted to fight wars so they banned the riff-raff from playing football in order to practise archery. I think one of the churches also tried to ban it.

    We invented the game and have been playing it, or a version of it, for 500 years. We juuuuuust need another century or so to improve.

    To be fair, we also gave the world rugby and cricket, in addition to football, and the rest of the world beats us roundly at them too.
