Deutschland - historical enemy since almost time immemorial. Millwall
Argentina - relative new kid on the block as enemies. Brighton.
Scotland - a mild irritant who hate us more than we hate them like say Charlton.

Argentina's true rivals are Brazil.
Germany's true rivals are Holland.
Turkey don't come into it.
France, I don't really see as big rivals, I'm not sure who they consider their biggest rivals?
Scotland, as insignificant a footballing nation they may be, I guess I would class them as our true rivals.
Spot on, has to be the Jocks. Bring back England v Scotland annually

You're right. Anyone in scandinavia or central and eastern mainland Europe would be more correct. They ••••in hate the germans in Sweden and Denmark.

If Scotland had a team worthy of being called our rivals, it would have to be them; surely claiming them as a rival is like saying Croydon FC are CPFC's number one rival and we know that according the Clowns we are their # 1 rival

I don't think any of you guys who are voting for Germany, Argentina or France have experienced, at first hand, an England v Scotland international!

I've been to loads of "big matches", but nothing compares to the atmosphere that over 80,000, mainly completely drunk Scots can come up with! To compare them with our "rivalry?!!" with Charlton is like comparing an ant to rhinoceros!

OK, Germany and Argentina have entered the equation due to the fact that "Home Internationals" which started in 1872 and ended in the mid 1980's mean we no longer play Scotland every year.

As far as France are concerned, nobody, but nobody, can take a bunch of frogs seriously, can they?

If any of you have travelled up to Glasgow to see exactly how much the Jocks actually do hate England, especially when we have played them there - you would'nt be in any doubt!

And it's not a "one-way" hatred, either! The number of fights I've witnessed at England v Scotland matches ( real fist to head combat!) is far in excess of anything else I've seen in over 35 years watching football.

They may be a joke now, but Scotland really leave Germany and Argentina far behind as rivals.

Traditionally its Scotland. We love to beat eachother and see eachother be beaten. Germany run a close 2nd due to the world war conflicts and there always seems to be great football matches between us. After that i would say Argentina.

So we should base who are rivals are on "real fist to head combat"
You can see that anytime in Glasgow when the local rivals go head to head or in your case "fist to head".

I thought the Glasgow handshake involved "heed to heed" combat.

I remember seeing Sweaties on the tube in 99 when they last played us at Wembley. They were giving it loads of "Unglush" abuse. But it was hard to take fans in ginger wigs, silly hats and wearing an old picnic blanket that masquerades as the "family tartan" seriously.

Actually rivalry with the UK, helps drive this country.


I'm saying this pissed at 2.00 am in the morning, my fellow aussie's will probably be annoyed with me. But our eyes are set on the UK, and Particuarly England, and everytime we beat you. The country goes up just a little bit.


Rugby has been done, hockey happened years ago, boxing has been and gone, Motor racing. Cricket of course and now the Last bastion....


We are your new Scotland, but with a Vengance
