  1. Well, he refers in the commentary to the Germans having trounced England’s midfield of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes, although there is some debate as to the merit of fielding Locke and Hobbes in the same line-up. Both immensely gifted, of course, but I’m not sure how they’d measure up against the likes of ‘Chopper’ Sophocles. I think, for the good of us all, J.S. Mill would be first name on the team-sheet, and he may be a little long in the tooth, but I can’t see us starting a competitive game without William of Ockham (‘Razor’ to his friends). Bertrand Russell would no doubt argue that, as he is considered the complete player, no team which did not include him could be considered complete.
