My 1966 World Cup Willie moneybox has a union flag vest on.

Really? That's an amazing statistic, haven't seen that before. Lots of Irish Grandmas?

Grealish and Rice are self-confessed tinkers, and the likes of Coady and Maguire and County Tyrone Mings probably are too.

I certainly don't immediately associate the lips and tongue logo with flag colours. I know there are different versions but it's usually bright red.

He was talking out of his arse then, and I don't think he actually managed the Stones.

For what it’s worth. He is abit of a wideboy so maybe he made it all up I dont know.


I think I read what I said in the Chess Records book about 10 years ago so could be hazy.

I've always assumed the reason (well, one of them anyway) was because England and Scotland were in the same group in Euro 96 and it would've been seen as a bit odd for England fans to be waving flags containing the cross of St Andrew at that tournament.

Definitely the Fall's version of "Jerusalem", though.

Your time as Trolley is rubbish.

Though technically, almost anyone who's got a claim to play for England, could with the loosest connection play for Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland - so that is five teams (six if you were desperate enough to include Gibraltar) - and vice versa.

Its not exactly hard to find a bit of 'history' to qualify.

Are you sure about that?
The other Home Countries will be devastated to hear that I can only play for England, I'm sure - all my grandparents were born in England. Feels like we should have a poll.
