England ?


If we are looking at countries then India are massive underachievers. Over a billion people and not in the top 150!

I would have thought that Newcastle are greater underachievers than Sunderland really.

Player wise I'd for for Matt Le Tissier who could have gone so much further if he hadn't been excrement scared of leaving Southampton.

Player-wise I would say ME. As a toddler I was destined for the top-flight, World Cups, etc. Never quite made it

Get the football infrastructure in place and you could tap into some potential. I know they have  said similar things here in the UK with the large Indian population yet hardly any pros which is probably a cultural thing eg they play mainly cricket .

We've had players who could do that at BP.


Don't agree about Sunderland or Newcastle. They are in the Prem after all.

Birmingham City should be in the top tier as should Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and/or United. Possibly Coventry and Bristol City should have the clout to do it as well if properly managed.
