    Nice one Mr Gallop, but we had the Amco Cup many moons ago with Western Division wining it one year IIRC.

    I don't remember the Amco/Tooth/KB cup having 700 teams though.

    Very true. I bet the game between the Wyong Wankers and the Marrickville Merkins will be a hoot.

    Isn't it funny how that article basically just repeats everything Gallop said and then goes on to add his quotes as well. The entire article would be 4 lines long if it wasn't for the doubling up of info

    Speaking of the FA Cup - How good was it to see Chelsea progress at Manchester United's expense!

    Yeh, I think NSW Country played in the Amco / Tooth cup thing as late as the early 80s didn't they? Was the highlight of my week living in sticks as a kid.....was allowed to stay up 'late'.

    Spurs were (understandably) Abramovich's first choice of an outlet for his roubles....then he visited the area.....Nice stroke of luck for Chelsea.

    Pretty sure this has been mentioned before but you should actually be calling it soccer or at least if you want to sound proper then association football. Calling it just Football is akin to saying Rugby and then not clarifying whether it's League or Union

    I heard Beckham refer to the game as soccer when he played for Galaxy.

    Only dickheads call it football. You can spot them a mile off.
