It's a deal I've got with Ashley. Just check if he/she's keeping his/her side of the bargain.

He's in Texas at the moment, so I don't think he's even thinking of 'the bargain'.

All very mysterious, incha? smiley - smiley

By the way, the first draft of tomorrow's Collaborative Entry is up. As it seemed to cause confusion in a few cases, I've removed the playing positions I'm afraid, but I think this is one entry where you'll recognise your own work a LOT.

smiley - cheers

the third man(temporary armistice)n strike)

Some interesting debate here, but I'd like to point out that mixing South Americans and Europeans doesn't always work. With the exception of Maradonna few South Americans have shown there international form in European club football. As such I would tend to favour Europeans whose style has often blended at club level. At centre-half definitely Moore and Baresi,upfront Van Basten and Pele. But why has no-one mentioned the peerless Alfredo de Stefano. Playing alongside Feranc Puskas he helped make Real Madrid virtually unbeatable. Germany seem under represented and I would have to find a place for Lothar Mathaus, a very under-rated player. As for George Bestsmiley - steam he wasn't interested in NI and I saw him play for a World eleven against England and he was substituted. A vastly over-rated player. Any world eleven would have to include Maradonna, whatever his faults quite simply the greatest player of all time.

Perhaps Researcher U205172 IS Gareth Southgate?

Even Gareth Southgate is not that deluded.

It's probably his agent.
