Thread: The “special relationship” between England and Germany in football.

    Re: The “special relationship” between England and Germany in football.

    If England lose , I expect the English FA to sack Southgate, or for him to resign. He was the wrong choice in the first place, but a convenient appointment.

    I can't see that the London clubs analogy is meaningful in any way whatsoever. By the way, I am in the bowels of deepest Devon at the moment (in order to spend the weekend walking the SW Coast Path) and have just partaken in a couple of pints of draught SA in the village pub!

    Basically West Ham consider Spurs their biggest rival, but Spurs don’t see it the same way.

    My experience of living in London is that there’s some form of needle, to different degrees, between Spurs/Chelsea/West Ham. For some reason Arsenal, despite being the most successful side from London (I think, still) are a bit of an afterthought strangely, almost like an interloper.
