    Name the nine English League teams that have the same number of letters in their first name as their last ('Milton Keynes' is not counted as they're the Milton Keynes Dons)

    Just a bit of fun, post your answers on here if you wish.

    Regards

    Nothing wrong with that. We get a lot of premier league matches on tv over here and I don't mind watching them at all!

    Channel Five in the UK is often showing sport when I get up for work (04.00!) and they quite frequently show Aussie (no-)Rules - usually a combination of extended highlights and a round-up of recent games.

    There is a truly dreadful, yet strangely amusing game out for pc called Aussie Rules Coach. Available in all terrible games stores.

    And yes, I do own a copy!
