Best Ever England XL (In My Lifetime)

So it’s time to answer the burning question – the one that’s been keeping you up at nights. What is the greatest England team of the last 30 something years? As you might imagine, this post comes after yet another lengthy pub discussion regarding all time greatest players.

His treatment by the media, in particular the Scum – sorry,… Read Article →
