Here at Perplexus we love keeping our brains in check, making sure we keep those thinking caps on whenever possible (apart from when we’re watching Glee), and challenging ourselves with new puzzles every day. Because of this, we’ve decided to start a new blog series, exploring extremely difficult puzzles, and trying to come up with some answers. This week we ask, ‘Why can’t England ever get past the semi-final?’. To begin answering such a challenging question, where else was there to start, but with our resident footie experts, Rob and Marlon:
“I think the answer is simple”, says Marlon. “The pressure gets to the team. Everyone has their hopes pinned on them for this time to be the time that everything turns out differently”.
“I think I agree”, says Rob, “although it’s also possible that by that time in the competition, Lampard and Rooney have both got enough yellow or red cards so that they’re out of play. Plus someone probably has a sore knee, or something”.
If you’d like to add your comments on this, or would like to try another puzzle (probably easier to solve) in the form of Perplexus, please do get in touch and one of our team will be on hand to help.
