Are English Soccer Fans the New Boston Red Sox Fans?

What Gideon Rachman says sure sounds familiar:
One of the masochistic pleasures of watching England, however, is the sheer familiarity of the narrative. We build the team up, we convince ourselves that this time we’ve got a real chance, the team get off to a decent start and then it all falls apart. It’s like having a recurring nightmare. And I think the players are as spooked as the fans - you can see their self-belief collapsing, as soon as things start to go wrong.
That sounds Anglo for "Wait until next year..."
