    On my actual Ignore List - three people. But they are not names I recognise so probably just passing trolls.

    On my mental Ignore List - where to start?

    £5 on Rooney to score first but lose 2-1, 115 to 1.
    £4 on Rooney to score first and win 2-1, 40 to 1.

    But the English would stand a better chancing of win, or at least advance further into the World Cup if they came as the UK (with Scottish, Welsh and Irish players in their roster).

    How did Scotland or Wales get to represent themselves anyway? UK is a unitary state. Even in a federal state like Canada (where the province are a separate level of government and has more powers than a unitary state with only a central gov), you don't get provinces playing in international sports. You don't see Quebec getting to represent themselves at the Olympics.

    Only Bale would get into the England team

    I always thought the Scots had their own leagues because they wouldn't stand a chance in the English ones.

    Pretty sure Aaron Ramsey would stroll straight into the side, too.

    Ramsey on this season's performance most probably will walk into the first XI, but I have my doubts if he can keep up those high standards.

    It's okay. The Scots know they only have two clubs, Celtic and Rangers, and that the other games are to pass the time between rounds of golf and beer o'clock.

    Rangers? I think you need to update your book of one liners
