    Oh dear... well, of course, every single vaccine death will be mentioned in the press. You don't read about the millions, and soon to be billions that are fine. Still, you can't help everyone. It's a shitty situation, but what can you do.. people also die in traffic, and we still have cars.

    Everyone is verified. Teams will be up shortly on the front page Thanks everyone. I have hardly had to reject any picks although there was the one player (who will remain nameless) who send five Star Wars picks instead of Star Trek. I did check to see if any of them were eligible but astonishingly they weren't.

    Twitter going crazy reporting the death of Freddy Marks, of Rod, Jane and Freddy fame. My favourite of the trio. If true, thanks for the memories of those times escaping from the reality.

    I think I agree, UK was not the weakest song. It's a bit like the songs Germany submitted a couple of years ago (thinking of our 2016 song, for example): It's competent, harmless and average. Problem is, you need to make people vote for you, and you've got to stand out. There are only 10 teams you can give points to (12,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1). You can have the 11th best song in Europe overall, but still end up with zero points, if you are exactly at 11th place in every country. Germany's song was much worse, but I guess some judges liked to be slammed with that wokeness hammer and they gave us three pity points. Other worse songs were those spectacularly cheap, but effective songs like Effendi and Loco Loco (Serbia and Albania). They kind of stood out for their open shamelessness, and I kind of liked that. Also, it helps to have some allies, I guess, really strong allies, like Greece and Cyprus. Or Moldova and Bulgaria. But that only takes you above zero, hardly above 100 points.

    Nil Points. The winning song was even sung in foreign. Disgraceful.
