shut up man |
: The cup that West Auckland won in 1909
: was in fact held the previous year,
: the Swiss team Servette FC won it
: and thus they are the winners of the
: "first world cup."
: West Auckland did indeed take part
: and win it the following year. When
: researching the TV film of West
: Auckland with James Bolan the 1908
: cup was overlooked as "winners
: of the second world cup" does
: not quite carry the same weight for
: the British TV public. Since then
: many people believe the BBC version.
: Sadly enought for West Auckland the
: one thing that can't be changed is
: history. Please update all
: references to this in honour of the
: Servette FC players that actually
: won the first world cup.
