    So, with a population of 65 million we finish third in the Olympics. Key part of Ryder Cup. Us Open tennis. US open golf. Champions League. Beat , no stuff, the All Blacks. Tour de France. Beat India in India in cricket. Champions League winners.

    UK - best sporting nation on earth?

    That'll be a yes then.

    I bet its all because Jaime Oliver asked kids to stop eating chicken nuggets.

    Beating the All Blacks would really put England up there yes. Whats up with Wales?

    But in all seriousness, doing real well the past two years.

    When I was a player, I noticed that people would say "WE" win the team won and "YOU" when we didn't win.

    Frontrunners, for the most part, suck.
    Nationalism about sports (and in general) is pretty hokey if you ask me, but, everyone has the option to self signify... if you have to brag, it is a pretty good indication of insecurity...

    and, yes, I know where I live.

    I've heard of people "trolling" on forums. What exactly does that mean?

    The English media are great at claiming Northern Irish,Welsh and Scottish sportsmen as their very own UK winners when those competitors are performing well,but quickly revert to paddy,taff and jock losers when the tide turns.

    I've heard that said about the media and Andy Murray before but in that case I'm afraid it's just another internet myth.

    The fact that you asked that question negates the premise of the original post in this thread. ;)
