Remember 1966

Remember 1966.

It's a phrase that really bugs me.

Every four years, it pops up somewhere. It was on an email subject box I received yesterday.

Firstly, I don't remember 1966. I wasn't even born.

And I'd like to bet that the person who emailed me wasn't even born in '66, either.

England's problem is that everybody wants to either remember 1966 or want to have been in a position to remember the year they won the World Cup.

I think remembering 1966 is a good way to forget every other World Cup England have competed in.

And those they didn't even qualify for.

If I were English, I'd wish I happened to be Brazilian.

At least then, I'd be able to remember more than one World Cup.
