Sounds pretty fun. :mrgreen:


Well done :) does BayernForum.com count as a major newspaper?

Italian tv documentary Program Voyager featured this story... according to the program not only Greece but also Sardinia was mentioned in order to deceive the German strategists.
The body was chose meticulously, he had to be one not of a high rank (cause the Nazis were aware of almost all of them) nor a low rank soldier which might not have been plausible that he would be carrying such important info.
The body was also chosen according to family... In fact the decided had no family and he died after committing a suicide.

I had an idea for a small competition.

When the leagues in Europe's top 5 finish, the champions of each league play in a mini-league one-legged tournament in some host country. E.g. before the EURO 2016 we would have been treated to a league between Barcelona, Bayern, Leicester City, Juventus and PSG, where each team would play 4 matches.

I think the timing is not right... It would be more ideal during Christmas time , although the EPL might opt out because of the busy schedule.

Actually it's the timing which I want. I hate the Champions League timing. Take Leicester City for example. Last season they were the best English club, but they weren't playing in the Champions League. This season, they will almost definitely NOT be the best English club, yet they're seeded in the draw for the Champions League. If the tournament is held exactly when the leagues finish, the teams competing will be in rhythm and form, and will compete with the same set of players that won them the league title, without a transfer window in between.

But before the Euro or the WC?
Maybe every two years ... and what if one of those teams is in the UCL final ?

Maybe it should be top 8 (or even top 4) and one-legged KO because to schedule 10 games at the end of the season is a bit too much unless they're played at the same time (which makes it not worthwhile in terms of money).

We’re still some way off from needing to raise the ceilings, but according to a comprehensive global study, the average Maltese man is 10 centimetres taller today than 100 years ago.
Research published in the journal eLife compared the average height of people born in 1896 and 1996, across 187 countries and found that with an average height today of 174cm, Maltese men are now ranked in 72nd place globally, compared to 102nd a century ago.
Women on the island have experienced their own growth spurt and are now also ranked 72nd in the world, having leapt from 130th place. Women’s average height of 160cm today is more than 11cm taller than in 1896.
According to paediatrician Victor Grech, the increase in average height was largely due to improvements in mothers’ nutrition and health during pregnancy, which is known to have an effect on children’s heights. “The gene pool may also have changed slightly over the years with the influx of foreigners,” he told the Times of Malta. “Years of people from more northern latitudes fathering children here is going to have an effect on the average.”
Globally, however, Maltese people still lag some way below the world’s tallest: Dutch men and Latvian women. According to the study, the average Dutchman is now 183cm tall, while the average Latvian woman reaches 170cm.
And while the increase in average height is noticeable, the biggest growth spurts were among Iranian men and South Korean women, who saw their height increase by an average of more than 16cm and 20cm.
At the other end of the table, men in East Timor and women in Guatemala are the world’s shortest.
According to the authors of the study, the rise in height seems to have stopped early in South Asia and reversed in Africa, reversing or diminishing Africa’s earlier advantage over Asia.
The study also noted taller people tend to have a longer life expectancy, with a reduced risk of heart disease, though they are at a greater risk of certain cancers.
The paper – A Century of Trends in Adult Human Height – was put together by the NCD Risk Factor Collaboration in association with the World Health Organisation.
The nations with the tallest men in 2014 (the 1914 ranking is in brackets):
1. Netherlands (12)
2. Belgium (33)
3. Estonia (4)
4. Latvia (13)
5. Denmark (9)
6. Bosnia and Herzegovina (19)
7. Croatia (22)
8. Serbia (30)
9. Iceland (6)
10. Czech Republic (24)
...
72. Malta (102) [source]

Adidas and Nike should stop wasting all that money in pure BS and prepare a tournament with their best players and invite, I don't know, Puma and whomever. Proceeds would go to the winner's chosen charity announced on the final. EDIT: Just to get the bastards going, I would sit the people from the charities on the stands and focus the cameras on them like at every foul break. 8)
