There is some previous...


Our most famous defeat at the hands of Viking marauders — Maldon, 991 — was the result of tactical naivety. 

We had them where we wanted them, trapped in their own area, unable to advance, but then our leader offered them safe passage across the midfield and into our half. (Hang on, that sounds a bit like the last semi-final we played in a major tournament...)
Let the Danish Cnuts play like Guthrums today please.

Actually many of them were Norwegians
