    Not as bad as usual this time I will admit, but its coming - that old english trait of overconfidence. How long before its 3 Lions, 1966, and stupid references to the war in the Sun if england play germany?
    Rarely, is there overconfidence, just hope. I think you lot in Wales, Scotland etc have been subjugated by the English for so long now, you forget what confidence and hope is. Nowadays, you just moan and ask for more money for benefits and Iron Bru.

    England are 12/1 to win the World Cup.

    For those who don't understand how betting works, it means that if you place £10 on England to win the World Cup, you will lose £10!

    But Wales and Scotland are crap and we know it. To be honest, in Wales, its is popular but not THAT popular.

    And honestly, if wales were in it we wouldn't be telling everyone we were going to win it. Thats what winds the rest of the UK up more than anything.

    And remember when Wales got to the SF a few years ago? If England had done that we'd have had a 20 page commemorative pullout in all the papers. But not if its wales or scotland. That winds us up too.

    I remember years ago too. Wales got to the SF of the rugby world cup. England had been dumped out early. One paper had one column on the SF game and two pages discussing where England had gone wrong and some non-story about that bellend who dived off the ferry.

    This is why the welsh and scottish think its funny when england lose...

    According to the Beeb, we have a 4% chance of winning.

    Which is slightly more than Scotland's chances then...
