       I thought they were called Swindon Nil?

       This idea is so uniquely British it's virtually incomprehensible.

       I think I understand why you said that but I could be wrong...

       Swindon? Mind you we just lost to Man Ciddy 1-3

       And there I was thinking it would be about imposing roundabouts in every town, or forcing each city council to erect faceless 70s shopping arcades, or closing the main industry in each major town, but no, it's Swindon Nil...

       I prefer the earlier idea of 'You Mate Top Trumps'. Linky. It is a classic that deserves churning.

       [james4] sorry, Swindon has produced nothing of note. Ever. Tis a supremely dull town.   

       top trumps based on the town's football club would be tedious. Each and every player has only ever aspired to mediocrity and thus the game of trumps would be sullied into a "who's less shit, Mooney or Invinscible".   

       Other readers of the bakery maybe as bemused and confused by this posting as your original idea. Everyone ... [james4] is sorry about that.   

       Grrr.   

       *and relax*   

       Bristol City are surely the best team in the Southwest?
