3rd place gets a bronze medal, doesn't it? If England's men were in such a match it would mean they would have reached the semi finals in a World Cup :eek: the world might end

I don't understand your point at all. Can female sprinters' times be compared to the men? No because they are much slower. Can you compare the female and male runners' attitudes and determination?...

I think in 1966 England made a pact with the Devil that if that Wembley goal stood English football would be cursed forever. So much bad luck is not normal!

Why would able-bodied adult fans want to sit down at a football match? It's not the ballet. No wonder the atmosphere in English stadiums is so crap nowadays.

This. Gazza has been desperately trying to stop drinking for years and years. Really stupid post to suggest he didn't want to stop.

Gazza is not George Best.
