This time we have a slightly different feel coming into this tournament, with a genuinely promising young crop of players, there could be a glimmer of hope for a decent run. We all have an understated optimism that even if it isn't to be this time, it could happen in the future.
Here at ArtPix Towers I've got the flags out, especially as the ArtPix clan has a very special family link to someone who brought the World Cup home in 1966.
So come on England, do us proud!!!
