    If you had to choose, would you rather Liverpool won a run of the mill Premiership match (for example against Blackburn on Sunday) or have your nation win a major tournament?

    It's interesting to see how the view changes from region to region. I asked my Irish cousin this (who is a Manc) and he would rather Ireland won a major competition than Man Utd win every competition they're in.

    With a name like Saint George, I would have thought you'd pick England.

    I'd love it if England won a major tournament. The feel good factor and the buzz would be worth it, it brings people together.

    Where are you from incidently? I don't disagree with you (about the feel good factor), but I couldn't give a flying fuck about England. I actually take pleasure in their defeats for some reason.

    Liverpool. Every single time.

    Anyone who says different can fuck off

    I used to be very passionate when I was younger, though the generation of "Ing-er-land" cockney cunts epitomised by John Terry somewhat tarnished my views. Bollocks to them now.

    just never got round to changing the SG67 name though.

    One almost meaningless match against a World Cup? I'd go for country, just. But if it was a more important match, there'd be no contest.

    It's strange, that's generally the view everywhere except from people from Liverpool.

    Liverpool. There are no circumstances under which I could conceive of answering any differently.

    Yup just a normal league match or whatever. I dont know why exactly, but I'd still pick Liverpool.

    Yep. I fucking hate it when players come back with fucking injuries from internationals, too.

    I used to be a pretty big England fan when I was a kid, like SG67, but for one reason or another I grew out of it.

    Come on, a major tournament? Personally i watch the England matches and the atmospheres really cool in pubs etc but my preferred international team is Brazil who I always root for no matter who they play including England. But before I die I would like to see England win a major tournament.

    Yeah, I don't know why. I just don't feel any affinity towards England. You might as well be asking me, who would I want to win the Asian cup thingy. I feel nothing towards them. I only cheer on our players... ie Gerrard, Crouch etc.

    I'm supporting Spain this year, and I still would be had England qualified. Croatia are my back up team.
