    I got 10 and never would have remembered the one I missed.
    But I hadn't opened up the page on pundit area which revealed that 3 players (unnamed) won a medal at the same final.

    Nothing substantive to add other than to say that this is an enjoyable thread.
    There is no such thing as a miracle cure, a free lunch or a humble opinion.

    I got a measly 8/11. (Should have been ten really, totally hadn't heard of one though).
    8/11 here as well. Probably the same 8.

    Although one was a bit braindead. It wouldn’t accept my answer until I wrote it without the apostrophe. A sad indictment of the current text era and its plummeting literacy levels

    Excrutiating interview with Paul McGrath on Marian Finucane right now. She's scarcely even asking him questions. More like making nonsensical statements and expecting him to comment upon them.
    " I wish to God that someone would be able to block out the voices in my head for five minutes, the voices that scream, over and over again: "Why do they come to me to die?"

    I liked James O'Connor - heart on sleeve type of player. If he was playing now he'd probably get a few caps. Interesting that he currently holds the highest coaching license you can have from UEFA and even more interesting that the writer thinks that US football fans have heard of Sheffield Wednesday! It would be great to see him climb the ladder in the coaching world but for the moment I am now a Louisville fan - that's the kiss of death for them.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    That's dreadful news, at the very best he'll recover to some extent after a long ordeal. But there are good reasons to be positive that he can recover. A benign tumour in a footballer whose main attribute was getting his head to the ball, sounds like there could be a connection?
