    I thought french bread pizza would win it on its own, throw in bacon and sausage buttie and tuna salad gaguette and I thought they'd stroll it.

    And thats without even bringing on poorly persons favourite, tomato soup.

    An amazing result when you think about it.

    FIBPA President Speaks Out

    FIPBA President Mr Steak Pie has given us his reaction to the result in The Warburtons Stadium.

    "I'm incredulous I really am. This was going to be the Tournament when a new wave of exciting, attacking breads was going to take home the cup." Mr Pie went on to state that "once again, it's brawn over beauty".

    Often outspoken Mr Pie felt that the game had come into a degree of disrepute due to the nature of some of the games. He said, "I'm not saying they (naan) don't deserve it, they played a great tournament, started slowly (only second in their group) and turned it on when it really mattered." Mr Pie did however single out two players for praise. "Well done everyone involved in the Naan camp, especially chicken kebab and lamb dansak, well played".

    Mr Pie continues to deny rumours he was attached in illegal betting rings prior to the final.

    He stated, "I deny all rumours I was involved in an illegal betting ring."

    I don't meant to take out my disappointment on the lovely lofty, just struggling to come to terms with losing such a big game.

    Hooorrraaaahhh!!! The right result in the end as Naan is the only bread I still eat (despite it making me poorly).

    I wish, on behalf of bread product fans everywhere, to offer my heartiest congratulations to all the competitors and especially Steak for all his hard work.

    I can't believe it's over! :cry:

    Make no mistake here, bread products were the REAL winner. It's been a great Tournament with some great games. I'm sure you'll agree, matches such as the 2nd round clash between White Sliced v Stottie will live on in the memory of bread fans everywhere.

    Great games, great players, great goals. Thats what it's all about.

    Just to tie up those loose ends, and so that if you missed any you can fill in your BPWC wall chart........

    GROUP A
    Garlic Bread
    Naan

    Milk Loaf
    Scotch Bread

    GROUP B
    Tea Cake
    Focaccia

    Bloomer
    Brioche

    GROUP C
    Ciabatta
    White Sliced

    Wholemeal
    Tiger Bread

    GROUP D
    Stottie
    Croissant

    Seseme Seed Bun
    Roti Chani

    GROUP E

    Oven Bottom Muffins

    Soda Bread
    Mighty White

    GROUP F
    Pitta
    French Stick

    Bagel

    Grissini

    Pumpernickel
    Rye Bread

    GROUP H
    Granary Loaf
    White Crusty

    Tortilla
    Chapati

    From that we progressed to the 2nd round line-up where heavyweights Stottie and White Sliced can feel unlucky to have drawn each other so early.(teams in bold qualified)

    Garlic Bread v Focaccia
    Chiabatta v Croissant
    Tea Cake v Naan
    Stottie v White Sliced
    Bread Buns v French Stick
    Crumpet v White Crusty
    Pitta v Oven Muffins
    Grissini v Granary Loaf

    The Quarter Finals saw new favourites Garlic Bread tumble out in another titanic struggle, while White Sliced (obviously still feeling the effects of their 2nd Round game) capitulated badly to the eventual Champs......

    Garlic Bread v Croissant
    Naan v White Sliced
    French Stick v Crusty White
    Pitta v Granary Loaf

    The Semis saw two fairly straightforward ties, where the favourites eased through.

    Croissant v French Stick
    Naan v Granary

    Which left us with an great game for third, taken by croissant.

    Croissant v Granary

    And we can all be thankful that the final lived up to all expectations, after a flying start, they were pegged back by half time, only to dominant the second half, leaving the final score:

    Naan 12 French Stick 8

    Gold!

    Right that's it, I'm off to slink home dejectedly out of this thread with the other Crusty White supporters to dream of future victories.

    BUT WE WILL RISE AGAIN!

    But before we go we're going to do over the Fans of the Granary and smash the town center up.
