Hmm, that was a draft only, I'll finalise by midnight Nye. In particular, I'm feeling bad about including Greavsie without his old mucker Saint. Also need to do some reading on those old stories about Bill Kenwright. Maybe need another boy of 66 - Nobby? And of course Gazza is a perennial favourite.


Final cut:

Hotshot Lorimer
Liam Miller
Gerd Muller
Nobby Stiles (j)
Billy McNeil
Stan Bowles
Fernando Ricksen
Martin Peters
Ray Wilson
Ken Bates
[Ian] Saint [John]
Greavsie
Alan Hudson

this is a 'footballers only' list. i urge anyone who's still undecided to pick linda nolan, still in her fifties, unique pick so far, seems an excellent shot to me.

From my pick I would like to remove Phil Collins and replace him with Roman Polanski. There are 2hrs and 11 minutes left of this year so well within the rules.

Cheers eric :cheers:

I'd switch my vote to him if I knew he was going to receive some dilatory sedatives and get butt-raped.




Just for fairness' sake.

Does this need the requisite point deduction given the timestamp?

'appen.

how about [in the interests of arbitrary unfairness] a deduction of 1 pt for every minute of lateness, i.e. 134 pts?
