    He followed Ireland as his 2nd team at WC90 which I suppose is fair enough.

    I thought it was funny then when I first watched it and it's funny now. Clearly all tongue in cheek and Houghton was into it but he was also very into the fact that he scored against England.
    There is no such thing as a miracle cure, a free lunch or a humble opinion.

    Sorry for the confusion, I meant to write Skinner (not Coogan) grew up in Birmingham and went to secondary schhol in the mid '70s there.

    I hope Coogan got bullied at school
