    Ok - since no-one has bitten on this one.
    Tough when you cant look them up on the net.

    Hull City is the only team in the premiership and the football league that you cant shade any of the letters in for.

    (Runs for the hills.)

    :p

    Ok - so I'm better at answering questions than setting them.
    New question anyone?

    So, do I have the honours for the next question, or does mordhiem's initial effort was enough?

    It works this way: you ask a question and the first person that answers it correctly asks the next one and so on. In this case, since col gave away his right to ask the next question, you were able to do so. What I ask is this: do you give the question to me (as I answered your second question) or to mordhiem (who gave a good response to the first)?
    I think you can give it to mordhiem. "1200-ish" goals is close enough for me, since you immediatly gave the right number. You should have waited and enjoyed our struggle to get the exct number right. At least that's what I would do... :D :p
