Lets be honest, we weren't going to win Euro2008, best to lose at the earliest stage to teach these players (i.e. Lampard) a lesson to hopefully not think you own the world. This will also (finally, I might add) put in a new manager and we are all hoping it's going to be someone with some sense of football. World Cup 2010, very possible winners.

This really sucks for the neutral fans, like myself.

Millions of neutrals around the world support England at these major tournaments. Millions just like to be able to discuss the make-up of the England team for big tournament games, esp. knockout stage games. England tournament fixtures draw large TV audiences...not just in England but worldwide. Oh, and boring or not, personally, I just like watching a collection of stars, that I normally see ONLY in the EPL, on the same pitch playing for the same team....the possibilities for such a team are endless.

You won't get sh=t in terms of an audience for Croatia-Poland....no disrespect intended towards those squads. Overall, ANY tournament is better with England IN it!!! You;d be a fool to say otherwise and must surely NOT be talking sensibly....rather just arrogantly...that's ok given that you are probably 11.

Oh and BTW, when was the last hooligan problem with England (to those people bashing England fans attending games recently).....what was the most recent date of crowd violence? Come on....tell me the date..........I'd REALLY like to know!!!!!!!

And, dismissing chances of winning a tournament is not a good enough excuse for not qualifying for the tournament.....certainly N.O.T ... F.O.R. ... E.N.G.L.A.N.D. IF they can fire Sir Alf Ramsey in 1973, they can sure as hell can this clown.

Yes, this is the only thing that annoys me (bit I’m still laughing)

I bet you all the euro 2008 matches will be on sky sports 3 or god forbid, setana sports now.

England do make tournaments interesting, all the English over hype their team and bring stupid amount of fans over to the tournament. also lots of nations such as Scotland, France and turkey and others hate England with a passion and watch to see them lose

No offence but I looked at the tournament host's I thought this will be a dull tournament anyway. With no England, a great deal of people will lose interest

I'm sorry but you guys are arrogant pricks. Believing that one of the most popular sporting events in the world will not be interesting just because a very overrated England squad won't be there is retarded. I could care less if England have all those stars, they haven't done anything worth watching at a major tournament in a long long time. Did you guys even watch those WC 2006 matches? England looked horrible and continued to look horrible in these qualifiers yet the FA decided to stick with this clown, I mean seriously what credentials did he have to coach the England NT? A UEFA Cup final blow-out loss? The FA f*cked up and the results of their bad hire you are experiencing right now.

Even though I don't know nearly as many players on Croatia's roster as England's roster, I'd rather watch Croatia vs. Poland than England vs. Poland because from what I have seen in these qualifiers Croatia plays some beautiful football and they have some fantastic individual players that can change a game.

McClaren, wow i hate this guy, don't know how you guys stuck with him till the end..... and Carsson? this guys a joke!! actually the whole english team looked like a joke, but what a good game to watch from the neutral point of view. I kind of wanted England to be there next summer to beat them once again :p:p, however, Croatia have definately showed they deserved to be in 1st place....

did you read what i said

i said people, (like me) like to watch england lose :) and some like to watch them win

its like the world cup and brazil

i want to see croatia do well anyway because of eduardo. i was really pissed off when the english booed him when coming off, i was really happy with his assist, he needs a bit of confedence since he hasan't been starting too many games

The people who tune in to watch because it's England.....do you think they;ll be watching....but for a small fraction,....NO! The tournament will suffer....it will go on, but it will suffer where it wouldn't have had England gone through. Sure you'll get fans from those countries (involved in the game) supporting and watching...even a few surrounding countries. People from those countries, who knew the last name of the Croatia player who scored the winner, will tune in to watch but it will be confined to a section of Europe and immigrants to other continents. It will be NOTHING compared to what a tournament like this would be able to draw, worldwide, with England just because they....are....E.N.G.L.A.N.D.

BTW, I'm talking about worldwide interest and the related TV audience and how it's NOW going to suffer drastically....i'm not spitting, arrogantly(apparently, as per some post above) or otherwise, on fans who would be cheering at the end of the qualifying campaign because it was successful for them.

ok, ok, I'm probably missing a "relative" in there somewhere. Allow me to revise:

"You won't get sh=t in terms of an audience for Croatia-Poland....RELATIVE to what you would get for an England game against ANY of the other teams that qualified"

carsson... 1st goal, looked like he was hiding from the ball, 2nd goal, stood there getting dribbled like a cone. anyways yeah he's not to blame, mclaren is to blame for starting him.

and how can you feel sorry or pity him? the guys gets 2.5 mil after NOT qualifying england, drawing malta, and having a bunch of stars at his dispossal, and doing total sh!t. man, if i was a brit, i'd wanna kill dis wanka.

Red Card [Being a douche] exp. 22/1/06
Not likely, however his chances of getting another opportunity are very slim at this point. He blew it but i wont make him the lone factor on this catastrophe. The players are overrated. I mean Lamps and Gerrard are good for their clubs but they cannot co-exist. Crouch is well he is Crouch. Rooney is a brainless retard that has talent to sell but zero intelligence whatsoever. The defense is shaky. There are only JT and Rio worth saving. The others are below average. hargreaves and Becks are ironically the best players in that squad. And than it is the everlasting goalkeeping problem.

England needs to do what France did after that 1996 and what Germany did after 2000 and that is REBUILDING. They need a coach that can handle the media like Mourinho did, they need to protect the players a lot more from the media circus as well.

Truth be told the Brits can blame their system ONLY for this defeat.
