I've always had a soft spot for you guys though I'm German.
I only watched Clemence when he was at Spurs, but he was still remarkable.
The trouble with Seaman was that he enjoyed one excellent tournament then became drawn into the celebrity circuit and lost focus. By Euro 2000 he was outright bad.
I'm one of those Englishmen who prioritises club far above country, so I've always thought kindly towards the Nationalmannschaft. England-(West) Germany is a great rivalry, though.
