You should understand that there is no way that I am bowing to pressure. This blog remains fiercely independent, and is no way influenced by the large donation made by Tom’s Organic Dope, plc.
But, my kind nature cannot be concealed permanently, so here is a football project for you.
So why not submit your all-time soccer XI. And your all-time England XI. And your all-time British XI. Selections can be as bizarre as you wish. Anyone wishing to play seriously should restrict their selection to those playing during their own lifetime.

And for the ladies, so that you don’t feel left out, what are your favourite knitting stitches?
