As do I, well until it comes to international level, when that seems to happen to us. I remember a few years ago, when we beat France home and away. It was the first time they'd been beaten in Paris for years, yet we still didn't make the cut! Albania away on Saturday, them doon tae 10 men, 0-4 I'll take that thank you. It's when we play teams we should beat that I worry about.
Looking at it the other way it really is surprising how few things have actually genuinely been invented by the US. I think it extends to 1) the refrigerator and 2) the integrated circuit (which is admittedly a biggie)
