    It doesn't help my argument about teams; it helps point-out that I have a perfectly firm grip on reality.

    Just because you didn't mix 2 sides up?

    The fact Neil did says nothing about you.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Same number of letters - anyone could make that mistake.

    Same as 'hold' and 'drop' with respect to catches. I mean, they both mean pretty well the same thing, don't they?:P

    I never said it did; I was just pointing-out that anyone can lose grip on reality every now and then.
    Especially when it's late...
    Surely <quack> would know about that?

    By saying that NEIL got 2 sides confused, how does that show that YOU have a grip on reality?

    **** sake.
    I never said "I have a better grip on reality than Neil". I simply said "this is not something that says I have no grip on reality - but look, anyone can lose a grip on reality sometimes".
    Not complicated.

    You look back through my 21 months of posting here and you will find plenty of typos/(freudian) slips/mistakes. This is because I am actually human and do make errors. The difference being the moment I have it pointed out to me I accept the fact that I - usually unintentionally - screwed up.

    You, however, continue to cling to your ideas and maintain that team spirit has no effect on how good a side is...

    No, I don't think I ever said that, if it seems so it is a customary poor piece of phraseology, which I have made it quite clear is a perennial evil I am besieged with.:duh:
    I maintain that team spirit has no effect on how good 11 players are; a good 11 players will always beat a less good 11 players if they play to their potential. However team-spirit will undoubtedly help good players win matches more regularly.
    Team spirit has no effect on how good a team could be, it has effect on how good it's performances are. I hope I have made myself clear.
