Everywhere I go in this country I see soccer jerseys, soccer pitches , and hundreds of thousands of scrawny malnourished looking chav soccer hooligan types. The country is OBSESSED with this grotty working class habit.

And yet they are SHIT at it :lol:

They just got dumped out of the World Cup by an impoverished third world nation of less than 3 million people. How humiliating.

You're a racist Nazi plum - scum of the earth. I'm very surprised you're not one of the malnourished chavs you mentioned.

Unless you're dumb enough to think that unfettered private investment is what we're all in favour of. But you're not dumb, are you Duff?

You have completely missed the point but you're a better poster than most piggydoggies so I'll humour you. The soccer model revolves around the primacy of the clubs unlike the the traditional union based rugby model. We're seeing a shift in the balance of power in rugby, led by the English and the French spivs, unless of course you are denying that the English posters were overwhelmingly in favour en masse of the spiv H Cup power grab?

If rugby ended as big as soccer is during this World Cup globally, we'd take the title for growing the game.

Your problem is you can't see the wood for the trees. Asking for a fairer distribution of the monies from European competition - and a better handling of how it generates that money is one thing, but comparing it to football is just daft.

Yes, the English and French clubs want more power in their relevant sphere. It's not about the primacy of club rugby, because the fight wasn't about club v country. No English fans look at the French model (typified by Toulon) and think that's a good thing - the vast majority of English fans like how club rugby is run in this country in terms of keeping things fair, having a salary cap, having a close relationship with the union. And every single English rugby fan understands that the popularity of the sport in this country has been and will forever be the international game.

You can't just wave your hand at football and screech about spivs - you actually have to prove that there's any comparison between the two. The only comparison is private ownership. And the clubs themselves vote to keep things sensible, because the clubs know which side their bread is buttered, and they know exactly how the sport works in this country.

The fight over a European club competition had nothing to do with the international side of the game. English clubs maintain an excellent relationship with their union - as you discovered to your distate last year - and there's a great symbiotic relationship regarding player availability, coaching, and development. Long may it continue :thumbup:

Tower Hamlets is full of Jew-haters. DD would fit right in.

If a private club system is to blame for England being shit at football why do other countries who also pick all their players from private club systems do well?

Don't know much about football so thats a genuine question.

From the little I do know football I'd say the Aviva prem is more similar to the Bundesliga than the EPL, see JM's post above.

Last time I remember playing them at Rugby we won by about 100 points so clearly their ability is restricted to football.

Not sure you've picked the right website to troll pigdogs about the footie :lol: .
