European Championships Charity Sweepstakes

We always envisioned a charity helping blog, a few times a year coming together for the a common cause. This summers football festival represents an ideal opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves via a charity sweepstakes, plus have a bit of banter, and I like to think Brother Walfrid would give us the nod of approval.
 
 
How it works,,,
The upcoming European Championships has a total of 24 teams.
We are seeking 24 amazing posters to pledge 10 pounds each to buy a team at this competition.
The first 24 posters to pledge ten pounds via PayPal are in (I have an account, just send a tenner before the Euros end, we trust you).
Once 24 different names have pledged on the blog we organize their blog names alphabetically.
My little one will draw 24 pieces of paper one at a time with a teams name on it, the video sent to Jim the Tim and Fairhill Bhoy for provenance.
First alphabetical name gets the first team drawn, sixth alphabetical name gets the sixth team drawn and so forth.
Everybody gets a team, you just don’t pick it, depends on the draw.
Only the two finalists win, 50 quid to the winner and 25 quid to the beaten finalist.
The rest goes to Mary’s Meals, the receipt made public.
 
 
If you wish to buy a team simply type โ€˜I will take a teamโ€™ below, we will add names until full, and thank you very much on behalf of BMCUWP, Mahe, and Marys Meals.
Good Luck everyone.

Good morning, friends and a Big Happy Friday – a bit drizzly today but apparently some wall to wall sunshine is as imminenent as the new Head Coach.
More importantly – I’ll take a team, please.

I’ll take team please. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you don’t mind me suggesting?
I wouldn’t put a halt on at 24 entrants. Keep them coming! If you get, for instance, 30 entrants, then you have 6 ‘blanks’, pieces of paper in the draw. You raise ยฃ300. It’s just your Donald Duck if you draw a ‘blank’! ๐Ÿ™‚
That’s how it often works in Grand National Draws.

The original European Cup design, awarded to Benficain 1962.
The original European Cup trophy was donated by L’ร‰quipe, a French sports newspaper.[4] This trophy was awarded permanently to Real Madrid in March 1967.[4] At the time, they were the reigning champions, and had won six titles altogether, including the first five competitions from 1956 to 1960. Celtic therefore became the first club to win the cup in its current design in 1967.

Congratulations on Ailish’s graduation.
Having a doctor in the house should prove useful and perhaps BMCUWP may finally get the medication he obviously needs!!!

I’ve booked myself in for a liver transplant!

Saw on another site Celtic fans reacting to Ed posting the Celtic statement about looking forward to having fans back in the stadium.
One fan responded by saying he’s taking the piss like he did all of last season.
Is that accurate?
He scored 18 goals in 31 SPL matches and 3 goals in 6 games in Europa and 1 in 1 game in Champions league.
In isolation these stats of just over a goal every two games is good.
I think the notion he didn’t try is wrong.
He was culpable like others of being selfish and not a team player.
Understandable considering the lack of coaching lead to having no discernible team plan and an everyman for himself attitude.
And considering the lack of service from our inept midfield is it any wonder when he received the ball he tried to do too much?
I don’t put down his downturn in form from being lazy but rather he was trying to hard out of frustration at being part of a disjointed 11.

We all love a list don’t we? I make it 18 entrants so far (hope I didn’t miss anyone) but with 2 weeks before the tournament starts there’s plenty time to get loads more…

Be careful with that?
One time in India my brother in law booked me in for a minor op on old shoulder injury.
Have never been the same since.
