During the 1990 World Cup England were blessed with some staggering talent, including John Barnes, Peter Beardsley, Chris Waddle, Gazza, Bryan Robson, Gary Lineker, David Platt ... Dorigo ... with a midfield like that England would surely win the World Cup now. Somehow after Bobby Robson left the managerial position to hapless twat Graham Taylor, the English side went from the WC semi-finals to not even qualifying in 1994.

This was hardly surprising considering Taylor dumped the majority of the above. Instead English supporters had to watch in despair as the national side plummeted to depths previously only reached by Scotland or Ireland at any given international tournament. Some have speculated it is because Taylor selected the following players:

Carlton Palmer

Keith Curle

Geoff Thomas

David Batty

Andy Sinton

Tony Daley

Earl Barrett

Whatever the case Taylor truly deserved his fate.
