    e.g.

    Rugby Football should be either 'bunch of southern puffs chasing an egg' or 'bunch of northern thugs chasing an egg' (depending on whether you can count to 15 or just 13)
    Australian Rules Football should be 'Convictball'
    American Football should be 'Armoured run a yard then stop for oxygenball'

    I believe he was in Euro 2004 - or he was joint with Lampard anyway. And he also averages a goal every other game this season. If he nets a couple against T&T he'll be in with just as much of a shot as Owen or anyone else at the Golden Boot.

    I don't know what odds you would get at this stage, but I think Fat Frank may be worth a bob or two as top goal scorer. He's been sticking them away for Chelski like nobody's business (13 from midfield with season barely half over) & is now our penalty taker as well. & any team with young Michael & Ash Cole will, say we say, potentially earn a spot kick or two...

    Crouch always try to earn a spot kick or two as well (and I'd be surprised if he isn't on as substitute a few times), tho I think he's possibly the worst diver in football.

    I reckon "Association Football" would've been the way to go as it's:

    a) the sport's proper name; &
    b) where the diminutive "soccer" is derived from.

    Why not football, it's the most obvious:

    Rugby Football: Played largely with hands
    Aussie Rules: I don't know much about it, but I think it's played with hands, so ditto
    American Football: Thats not played with feet or hands, more like the shoulder pads
    (Bit OT, but do the constant breaks happen in American Football so that the average American can go and fetch a whole new box of doughnuts every five minutes?)

    I'm sure he's going to be on the bench every game England play (may even start against T&T). At least the Premiership supporter morons have just about stopped booing him every time he receives the ball. What was that about? Hate him because he's tall?

    Don't know about Crouch being the worst diver in football, but his team-mate the ex-Dirty Leeds rat "Two puffy pony tails" Harry Kewell is probably the best, filthy cheating scum.

    So are you going for Australia or England in the WC?
