Golden Generation :-)
They only ever got to a quater final which in my mind doesn't even equate to a bronze generation let alone golden.
A lot of good club players who lived off that at international level.
England's best player in 2002? Nicky Butt
England's best player in 2006? Owen Hargreaves
2010? the pilot who flew them back below the radar.
We should play the best of our truly Golden Generations of our under 20s and under 17s and be looking at 2024 euros and 2026 world cups rather simply go through the motions with what we know won't do anything at this world cup and won't be around in 2024 or 2026.

{Ed025's Note - im all for that G62..

The PL is amazing, but it's mainly due to the influx of foreign players, managers and coaches. If yu select the best team from the PL, how many players would be English and that's taking into account the fact that PL can only have 17 overage foreign players, forcing them to make up the rest of the 25 man squad with home grown players.
The current crop have a few quality players, but when the current international squad contains players such as Livermore and is managed by Southgate, it shows just how weak the selection of English talent is.
The golden generation were highly though of in England, but how many of them played overseas with the big guns of Europe?

Hi Ed025 mate good to hear from you.
Mate how many years have we wasted making the best of what we have at the time or to put it better making the best of a bad job.
Germany in 2006 even though hosts accepted the reality before the tournament started and despite having a very long history of success knew they needed to breathe build and then go forward again.
In 2010 they looked more to the future than the right now and in 2014 became the best of the best again.
When will we ever face reality and accept our true place in world football and set about really looking to change it.
If we look towards 2024 now we could be contenders if we wait till 2024 we will most likely be exactly where we are now or even further away still.

{Ed025's Note - its certainly stagnated G62, i think a lot have given up on the england side to be honest and who can blame them, its been a succession of failure and i would go with your idea it up and start again..

England have been pretending to be one of the big boys for years without ever coming up with the goods to prove it and now their credibility has gone and with it most people's interest in them.
The only way is to rip it up and start again as the French Germans and Spanish did, Italy and Holland have both been huge international teams but have hit a low currently but by 2022 or 2024 both will be back right in the last 4 mix or even better.
We need to stop pretending accept our true position and standing within the game and simply change our ways so the future stands a chance of being different from the past.

Very fair and unbiased view.

Very good read.

Fair shout on all clubs there mate, obviously none of us know the future but it looks pretty much City to dominate the title for a year or 3 yet while like you I'd expect Liverpool to improve further still next season and Utd under Jose might not be pretty they will be as effective as any one and more so than most in trying to make life as tough for City as possible.
Chelsea depends on who they bring in as manager but they might have to settle for a period of competing for 2 to 5th for a few seasons no matter who gets the toughest job in football to keep hold of.
For Spurs so much depends on Poch first and Harry second, hang on to both and they will be up there with the other 3 chasing teams, lose Harry and it will be much tougher but lose Poch and they might well be relegated back into Europa league place battle.
Arsenal who knows?
If we stick with Arsene we look certain to continue our slide possibly out of European football completely depending on who wins what cups and even if Arsene goes the new manager will have a huge job on just getting us back into a 4th place challenge.
The future seems most bright for
Followed by Chelsea and Spurs
While Arsenal might have to worry more about Everton and next seasons Burnley more than top 5 for a while.

Nice read Putney, can’t argue with much of that and Pep has done a fabulous job regenerating what was widely regarded as an ageing squad.

If Klopp makes the right signings in the summer they will definitely be the biggest threat to City.

With Abramovich Chelsea will sort something out and be on it again next season.

I would put City in the running for Kane should he decide to move or the money be too good not too. Spurs have a huge task holding it all together.

United under Mourinho will be there or there about but whether than can take the next step with him for me is unlikely. They still have a lot of places to upgrade.

Arsenal I won’t even bother commenting on.

Cheers lads, wasn't expecting my views to be quite so well received over here.

Interested England fan. what are the prospects of Wilshire ever getting back into your team and delivering anything close to his potential?


1.) 06 Oct 2017 18:22:39
My last memory's of him in an England shirt were positive and he scored a few goals and played well. Won't get in unless he's playing well regularly for us though.

2.) 06 Oct 2017 22:40:50
England are crying out for a fit and firing wilshire. The only way that will happen is if there is a massive change of the situation at club level. If he gets back in the england team, that means he's doing well at arsenal. A long way to go before that happens. He may go a whole season playing low key euro and cup fixtures, would that get him in the england team?

3.) 07 Oct 2017 09:44:26
Can't really say as haven't watched an England game since the Iceland match, so I've no idea who is doing well currently.
I'm hoping to regain some interest by the time the world cup arrives but I'm not sure, shame as there was a time when I wouldn't miss a minute of any competitive England match but Euro 2016 was probably an underachievement to far to me.
