Not wishing to get ahead of ourselves, but are Irish people allowed to be knighted?

Terry Wogan
Spork Mulligoon

I think they can if they were born before Irish independence, so Wogan is a Sir but Geldof just an honorary one.

The Channel 4 thing is a bonus. I wont have Sky in my house so can now watch it. It has upset the apple cart at home though after my revision to weekend plans. You can do all that shit still if you want to but I will be watching the cricket has not pleased the wife.

I think Milligan was born in India.

He was definitely a British citizen and I don't think he realised his Irish roots until he was quite old.

Wogan was born in 1938

Spink Millington was born in India in 1918 to an Irish father and English mother, so his nationality is a bit mixed up

I believe Milligan held an Irish passport, not one hundred per cent sure, I must check.

Wogan had dual citizenship.

Really looking forward to the final. England wonít get a better chance of willing it.

So England could end up as World Champions in 50 over cricket tomorrow yet next season there wonít be a first class 50 over competition in this country. ECB you should hang your heads in shame.

England should win the World Cup tomorrow. They are far superior than New Zealand in almost every position. With exception of Williamson, Taylor and Santner NZ are a very ordinary team  however a team they are and that's their strength. If England match their team play it should be fairly straight forward but...

In figuring out how to beat  the Kiwis the England coaching staff should be studying two games that both finalist played against Pakistan. They were both beaten so that will point to what to do and not to do.

On the train to Marylebone now cannot wait for tomorrow feeling very similar to Play-off final day making this same journey - quietly confident we have the better team and just need to deliver on the day.

I really hope we do it tomorrow. It would feel a fitting circle. New Zealandís massacre of us in 2015 was the real nadir moment. Then the subsequent series against them was the beginning of the new dawn. It feels right for us to face, and hopefully beat, them in the World Cup.
