    Of course, hadn't thought of that!

    Still 4 changes is generous.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "this was Argentinaís heaviest defeat in the group stage of a World Cup since losing 6-1 to Czechoslovakia in 1958. It is also the first time they have failed to win either of their opening two matches at a World Cup for 44 years. Sampaoliís players, in other words, were creating history here" - The Guardian's Stuart James on Croatia's 3-0 dicking of the South Americans

    It's a World Cup Dream Team double for Marc, congrats to him! I'm putting on my "good loser" fixed smile in second (I'd far rather be a mediocre winner...), edging out cpr by 2 points & GeraintIMH makes it an English 1-2-3-4. Dream team regular Anthony finishes as top non-Pom.

    Special congrats to SKD whose Tadpole is my Hero somehow manage to take 8th, despite a heroic lack of effort on his part.

    Pretty happy to have just not come last in that other one, having put such minimal effort in, and reporting Sportal as junk mail to Hotmail for sending me those emails about Trade Period being open...
