Big deal. Never cared much for these rankings so I won't start now. Its nice but people complain about how crappy the rankings are when their team is low but if it rises all of a sudden FIFA rankings become gospel.

La plus belle chose dans le monde est l'amour pour l'AEK!
La cosa piu' bella nel' mondo e' di amare l'AEK!
Dünya'da en güzel şey, AEK aşkı.

I don't think FIFA rankings are an indication of strength, but its useful to be as high as possible because you get better seedings for competitions. We would not be 90% in WC10 if we were not that high...

Sorry to go off topic but ****ing England, its disgraceful ( im nea in the bit where Euro2008 are in teh world, all those bolded except 1)

Anyway, Fifa rankings are a good indication of progress, I dont care what people say, if youre team is gaining more points and moving up, thats good.

The host nation bit is the only negative.

05.04.00 - 05.04.09

Ya but everyone does the same song and dance with the FIFA rankings. They hate on em when their country is low and love em when their country is high.

About the only good thing from it is the high seeding for the tournament draws as Amoroso said.

I am sorry but I don't agree with FIFA rankings..Turkey far better than Russia and Sweden much better than USA or Bulgaria...
