Club v Country? And England Predictions

Club v Country? And England Predictions

Interesting talking point now the transfer window has closed is the old club v country debate!

Nivea are covering football at both ends of the spectrum, they are the official grooming supplier for the England team but are also involved with grass roots football in the The Great Football Experiment.

Then in-between, we have our dreams, hopes and fears in what for most can only be described as the roller coaster ride that is supporting our own team. Overload for our brains or what, and the ladies say we can`t multi task!

Where do you stand? Do you look forward to your own club games more? Do you prefer international football (whoever your country is) or are you drifting more towards playing the game or watching grass roots instead these days?

With the qualifiers upcoming, how much do your thoughts turn to your country?

The lads at Ivory FC (the great football experiment team) are predicting a 1-1 for England v Bulgaria... And predict a rout against Wales. Is it ever that simple?

For the prediction, go to: Will Takes On The England Predictions and feel free to vote on the poll and leave your prediction in the article comments (same logins as for your usual team site)

Let us know your thoughts!

Watch my own club or the national team. Difficult choice now that the England team quality is dependent to a large extent on clubs that are owned by foreigners who have little or no interest in the success of the national side, it seems their main concern is that their players playing for England does not bring them profit and brings the possibility of injury and therefore potential loss. I still hope fervently for England success but on balance would now put my own club first. Sounds like "if you can't beat em, join em"
