    Yeah, don't have a problem with Eds keeping Walcott as it was a grey area and many picks have happened since then, so it would be really harsh making him repick now.

    Btw, can think of similar greyish areas in at least 2 clauses.

    I've discovered that the people of northern Turkmenistan spell Yorkshire with a G. As in "Gworchere".

    So does that mean I can choose Geoffrey Boycott for that particular Clause? Or is that taking the piss a bit too far?

    Hi guys, sorry for not picking. Was visiting family and picking up bits for uni that I'd stored with various people over summer. Currently travelling back home. I'll be able to pick in about 90 minutes if people would be so kind as to wait?
