War Premiership Table

As we continue our stroll down memory lane, I’m reminded of this choice little number Dave posted in early 2001. Set the Wayback Machine to stun, kids – it’s the War Premiership Table…

Every time England and Germany meet on the soccer field, the lads in the stand never fail to remind the sausage-eaters that as far as mother England is concerned, it’s two-nil no matter what the ref says. For the record, here’s the scoreboard to date for the rest of the league.

Team Played Won Drawn Lost Victory %
Great Britain 6 6 0 0 100%
NZ & Australia  5 4 1 0 80%
France 17 12 0 5 71%
Russia 17 11 2 4 65%
Germany 13 8 0 5 62%
Greece 6 3 2 1 50%
Poland 6 3 0 3 50%
Denmark 2 1 0 1 50%
Austria/Hungary 15 6 0 9 40%
Italy 6 2 1 3 33%
Turkey 14 4 5 5 29%
Spain 4 0 0 4 0%
  • Points are awarded for conflicts since 1768.
  • Vietnam is scored as a tactical withdrawl, and hence a draw.
  • Stalemates count as a draw.
  • Trial matches in Malaysia, the Gulf and East Timor are not counted.
  • Although Great Britain is the leader thus far on points, special consideration goes to New Zealand and Australia since they have never had a home game.
