Numbers, dates, stings, any women involved here? Smile



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Yes indeed there are. This could be one of the shortest 20 Q's ever.

What's the record "low" ?

Very good.

Diana Ross must be up there with the "Most Guessed" and at some point will probably be the correct answer. But not on this occasion.......

I wonder where you were going to go with that one; nothing illegal anyway.

A quick guess at Rossiyanka's interpretation of lining up a wall before they're ruled out...

Whole lotta zoomin' goin' on lads, but any Lancs connection (pre-74 of course) is quite a tenuous one, but there is one I guess............

I suppose it might fall into that category, but it's not a singular e/o which is what makes it more "interesting"

GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There were actually three fatalities as, after Ireland's grandmothers were both found to be hale and hearty, he stated it was his grandfather's second wife who - you've guessed it - was subsequently revealed to be fit and well also. Not the brightest bulb in the box, unlike you Chris Tongue

In September 2007, Ireland was at the centre of controversy when, in the immediate aftermath of a Republic of Ireland international match and days before their crunch game against the Czech Republic, coach Steve Staunton informed him of a telephone call just received from his girlfriend reporting the death of his maternal grandmother. Staunton quickly consented to Ireland's compassionate leave on these grounds, a private jet was chartered for his return.
However the media quickly discovered that Ireland's grandmother was not dead, at which point Ireland announced it was his paternal grandmother who died but yet again, reporters discovered that Ireland's paternal grandmother was also still alive, and her relatives had threatened to sue one newspaper that reported her death. Ireland changed his story again, saying one of his grandfathers had divorced, and it was his second wife who had died. That was also quickly discovered to be untrue.

As hipkiss express will testify, it's now among the Ireland fans repertoire

Good one Laugh. Have to admit I had something else in mind with the Lancashire connection question and the answer given helped.
