Results or Entertainment?

Debate's been raging all day on the radio. Do you want England to win the World Cup at the expense of entertaining us football wise if that's what it takes or are you more concerned over the manner of the perfomance? It was pointed out, quite rightly I think that if we were Italian the team would not be coming in for anything like as much stick. 2 of the perceived better sides who were certainly seen as easier on the eye in Holland and Spain are now sat at home. Do you think they and their supporters would sacrifice the style to be sat where we are right now?

Be interesting to see, personally I couldn't give a monkeys how we play as long as we win it. If that means boring the pants off everyone Geroge Graham style and grinding out another 3 more 1-0 wins then so be it. To win the world Cup without hitting "top form" will make it even more of an achievement in my book and in years to come no one will remember how we played to win it, just that we did and after 40 years of waiting it's high time, no matter how it comes!

I was lucky enough to watch England win the World Cup in 1966. I have to say today I couldn't tell you how they played, but we all know they won.

Nobody seems to care if they were boring/lucky/great/entertaining.

I don't care if we are boring in the old German way - they could play when needed and defended well, with a strong mentality.

I am not sure this team can win 'ugly' against decent teams.

Interesting, so to put it another way, Palace win the FA Cup playing the England way or get knocked out in the 5th round playing like Brazil? You're seriously telling me you'd take the latter on the grounds that at least fans of other Championship clubs would look on and give us a pat on the back for upholding the image of Championship football?

Madness!

Solid and dull would do me. As long as we don't win by being dirty and tricking refs and calling for players to be carded, and mock face holding, and rolling over ten times after innocuous tackles.

But as long as you entertain, some people think all that is part and parcel.

Screw entertainment if boring play wins the world cup. But I think that its the wrong question being asked by the press - yes we have results so far, but if we play as we have done we won't be boring but successful, we'll be boring and on our way home when we come up against the better sides.

whatever it takes to win the world cup.If that means boring the other team to sleep then sneaking a 1-0 win then so be it.

at the end of the day it's all about holding up that trophy

i voted for entertainment and good football , winning is obviously great but shouldnt be the be all and end all in international football . i want and expect even, the best players in the world to produce the beautiful game , thats what i want to see .

i dont think you can compare it to domestic football where you are aspiring to move up divisions , win cups get into europe etc thereby producing more money to go and buy the best players and get your dream team and play exciting atttractive football.

thats not true, Brazil played entertaining football post 1970 and in the 80's and won f*ck all. 1994 ws definatly the dullest Brazil team I've seen, the dullest final and probably the dullest tournament.


with palace it is slightly different as if your going every week their needs to be more of a balance to keep you interested but once every four years with england I'll take dull and winning thanks
