    Coz the olympics is GB and Ireland and in footy the countries that makes up GB have their own association, much to FIFA and UEFA's annoyance

    That might be the reason Smurfy but it still leaves me with a sore head???

    If we're making up the rules why don't we play as the UK instead of GB, then Scotland won't hate us as much at footy? I bet they were all wearing USA shirts yesterday.

    Because we'd lose members on the FIFA and UEFA boards and also end up with a UK league rather than English and Scottish and hence less places in Europe

    Plus the scots wouldn't support the team when it won't have any of their players in it

    I've tried doing it with my phone, while walking. Half of them either came out at a big angle or missed the house completely.

    You know, Ged would probably just go up and ask them

    I think most people take it as a compliment for all their effort. I've only been accosted once in the Pitt st area when some lad thought I was a snooper from the soash. It was a good job I had my brown pants on.

    That would be on account of Bottle favorite son Jamie C playing in the World Cup, ho ho.
