Idents World Cup – final results

Well, the votes have been totted up and the result of the Idents World Cup final is as follows: ATV 4 Thames 2 If it had been a Prodcaps World Cup, the boot might have been on the other foot, but I think that this is a fair and decisive result, and I’d like to thank Sir Lew Grade and Howard Thomas for the clean way in which their teams played. Let’s hear that Midlands marvel once again.

Semi-final results and, holy crap, it’s the final

Semi-final results and, holy crap, it’s the final

LWT 1 ATV 3Thames 3 HTV 1 Bad luck for LWT in the semi-finals, scoring a lone goal against Sir Lew and the might of the Midlands. Bad luck also to the HTV aerial, the only ident in this semi-final line-up not to feature any vuvuzela-like brass scoring. However, HTV does take back to Pontcanna the 3rd place title. Which means that, live and at the same time as the footballers go at it, we ident fans see a stand-off…

Group G results and Group H matches

Yes, I know the group stages are dragging on longer than the real thing, but I don’t have FIFA’s resources. I do still aim, somehow, to get this thing finished at the same time as the football shiznit. Anyway, we must move with all speed to the Michael Speake Leisure Centre on Norwich’s busy Prince of Wales Road for the group G results.
