It’s part of the entitled culture surrounding football, which extends all around.
Partly driven, IMO, by this constant drive of pointless statistics that is thrown in your face. People become so obsessed over tiny metrics without understanding the whole picture.
Indeed. I'm getting fed up with reading so-called opinions that we 'should' have won a major tournament by now, as if other teams don't even exist.
I think England fans have every right to be entitled. I fully expect them to be favourites next summer. Who can they fear?
Not France, they don't look good, Italy are in the international EFL, Spain have dropped off a cliff, and the Germans have been garbage since 2014. None of them have the talent England have. The only thing stopping England next summer is Southgate.
Well you're wrong. First - we didn't 'look good' when we lost 4-0 to Hungary last year, or whatever the score was. That's how it goes sometimes. France have the best squad on paper. Spain had a poor World Cup but will be thereabouts. Germany sacking Flick could reinvigorate them. Portugal are going about their business just fine and score a lot of goals. One team can win the tournament - but I feel sorry for anyone unintelligent enough to separate being one of the favourites from 'should win'. It's a tournament. Anything can happen, and it does.
I'm guessing you'd give zero credit to Southgate if we did win it, too.
