Crappy Internationals. Why Do They Bother?


Recommended Posts

This kind of fixture is the basis of the Euro Championships, everyone gets a crack of the whip.

 

I don't see people complaining about us playing Barnet in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, no difference here.

Andorras best player plays for a second division spanish club and even he didnt bother turning up!

 

the minnows should have a play off and the winner goes into the big comp. save wasting everyones time.

 

5-0. this game was no different than a training session.

 

over 56,000 mugs paid to watch this training session. the population of andorra isnt much more -- 71,201 (July 2006 est.) .

 

you could fit the lot into old trafford.

 

international matches are supposed to be about something.

 

this was a match about nothing. a complete waste of everyones time.

Thats the great thing about football and why it is so popular worldwide, because so called crap teams do get the chance to play the big boys. Yes it may ahve been like a training session for England but it would have been the biggest thrill for the andorran players to play a big team in front of such a big crowd.

 

Sorry Java but the attitude you have is so prevelant in football today where the so called big teams just want to play each and screw all the smaller ones

 

I know it is almost impossible but every now and then the rank outsiders do manage to win and that is what makes football such a special game.

IMO it's unfair to discriminate against smaller teams, every country deserves a chance at glory. With the way English football is going, i.e. foreigners flooding our league, we wont be able to put out a much better team than the Andorrans. Would you want us to never have a chance against so called bigger teams then?

at club level i would agree. not at international level. international soccer is about something more significant than just club sides.

 

these matches disrupt the entire premier league and probably much of the championship throughout europe, to play sides like the faroe islands and andorra.

 

andorra!!! tranmere rovers are a better side!

that still makes them better than andorra!

 

"Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says that international football is becoming a turn-off for fans because of the one-sided matches and "congestion of international matches". (The Sun)

 

too true!

 

England goalkeeper Paul Robinson did not touch the ball for a total of 42 minutes 51 seconds during Saturday's stroll against Andorra. His spell of inactivity stretched from a goal-kick shortly before half-time to a picking up a pass from Ashley Cole just before full-time. (The Times) "

 

 

Do you call that a football match?
