do England got to many attention for their world cup team? Yes and too much... but at the end of the day they will become the biggest flop of world cup. Where things go wrong with all so called superstar that they have? Even who to be the next captain issue also had been blown out of proportions and I still remember when a reporter ask Michel Platini about the John Terry case... He answered " I don't give a ding about it, There's other thing more important in world cup". Don't get me wrong guys, I am not anti-england and I love to watch their game when they played at their best... but 1966 's had been long forgotten..

Fabio Capello gave the media some smart lip talk today. They were photographing a medical session of the players and Capello gave them a piece of his mind and asked them to leave the players to their own. I think sometimes media intervenes too much in to the players lives. I think they already have enough on their mind and the media should leave them alone. Cheers! Ram

The English media is an absolute nightmare. They build our players and team up to be some kind of gods, and then they expect other countries to marvel at our players. All because the priemier league is the most exciting league in the world and shown to so many countries worldwide, they forget that the best players are all from abroad. The best thing is when England get knocked out of a competition or an English club loses in the champions league, then all hell breaks loose and the media usually blame the officials instead of the players. I'm sure if England don't win, it'll be the same again. But I'm english so I hope they do win.

The main reason why England always get so much attention is because of the EPL. Being the most popular league in the world, naturally, England, the nation will rub off the popularity. I for once, used to be a staunch England fan. World Cup, Euro, you will see me supporting them faithfully. That was until I realize that the English team is nothing but hype. Their supposingly world class players are nothing but average. Some have argued that the influx of foreign players have stem the growth of the local one. However, it is precisely the influx of them that the EPL raised its standard as whole. Banned them and the EPL standard will falls. And we will have mediocre players plying their trade in a mediocre league.
