As a fan base, we do seem to have a massive chip on our shoulder.
I don't know about it in this case. I can't say I'm all that bothered about England call ups either way, but it does mean something to a player and I think the FA/previous managers have clearly been guilty of showing preferential treatment of certain clubs. This is surely not a controversial statement.
It shouldn't be seen as having a chip on your shoulder when all you're looking for is equal consideration, particularly as potentially it does effect the club if players think there might be a cap on their progress internationally and they're better off sitting for half the games on the bench of a top 4/6 club rather than playing for us. Bigger clubs have enough sway to pull in those players without extra help.
