    Hopefully the team will bond tighter and get the confidence to read each other better on the pitch going forward, as I'm sure they have a much better game against tough oposition in them once it clicks ?

    Some really tasty final group games to look forward to.

    After that I fancy us to beat Finland or Russia and if I've read the fixtures correctly we could play the Netherlands or one from the group of death. Good fun :grin:

    This might be another one:


    ****True facts****

    1. In the 1400s a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb.

    Hence we have 'the rule of thumb.'

    2. Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...

    Ladies Forbidden'... and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.

    3. Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

    Spades - King David,

    Hearts - Charlemagne,

    Clubs -Alexander the Great,

    Diamonds - Julius Caesar

    4. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase......... 'goodnight, sleep tight.'

    5. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink.

    Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

    6. Since 1966,England fans have said they are going to win the cup at the start of every football competition, hence the phrase ‘deluded twat’

    <cheers>
