Walter Smith will likely have seen the highest rise.

However, it should be noted that a large part of that climb was down to FIFA changing the ranking periods from 8 years to 4 years.

Vote Yes in 2014 and get the government we want, every single time

We were 80th when Smith took over and Big Eck got us to 13th. We were 14th when Burley took over, 46th by the time Levein took over. Think that shows the damage that Burley really done to us.

As Cove says - FIFA changed the ranking system after the 2006 WC & the evaluation period changed to four years from 8 years.

However we were rated 86th in 2004 & had reached 25 in 2006 so it's not strictly accurate to say a large part was due to the change in rankings. :wink2:
We were rated 14 in 2007.

I'm certain we were as high as 13th at one point.

Absolutely agree, i don't think the rankings should be issued until there is a draw for a championship, that is the only time they are of any relevence at all.

Fair enough 13th or 14th, I think my 2007 figure must have been an average.

The point I was making was, it wasn't strictly accurate to say that a large part of the rise during Smith's regime was due to change in the rankings system.

The ranking are stupid. Some banal pundit was whittling on about about England being 'well behind your Germanys, Yer Spains, yer Italy's etc' and yet England will remain in the top ten :shocked: and so they will continue to get easy groups and so will continue to do OK. They were garbage to watch and if thats a top ten side in the world then football is doomed. I would say England are closer to Scotland's mediocrity than Germany and Spains excellence and yet the rankings dont reflect this.

England are a top 8 European side, and that is fairly well reflected in the rankings. If you only look at the rankings of the UEFA nations and all other nations taken out, you can't really argue with them too much.

Apart from the european side who just absolutely played them off the park being significantly below them in the rankings?
