Mimicus is the Latin for ‘farcical’ and farcical comes from the Latin farcire, meaning “to stuff”.

By doing this, the players will know what to expect when they’re crammed into their Veuling-operated flights to and around the Russian Federation and the fans will be primed for the predicable results, especially when we come up against the mighty Iceland at a crucial stage of the compettiton.


Too bloody true – I stayed up very late to watch Eng v Iceland and ended up shouting for Iceland, ‘cos I was so mad the England team.
