    Six Portuguese world cups?
    An Irish World Cup?
    A Finnish World Cup?
    A Welsh World Cup?
    How did all this come to be.

    Well-made, and I quite like a Portugalwank!

    And... what was East Bulgaria? Communist Bulgaria much like OTL East Germany - with a capitalist/democratic(?) West Bulgaria?

    Portugal has a historically strong team, and during the colonial era, Portugal and the colonies had a strong championship between them.

    Ireland's 1940 team was scary.

    No one is quite sure how Finland won that one.

    The Welsh win was mostly a fluke because a bunch of countries boycotted it (e.g Portugal, Spain) because of Soviet messing around in Africa (and Hungary was a Communist state)

    Makes sense, if Portugal ITTL has better infrastructure.
    That's possible. The GAA did spend decades structurally undermining Soccer with open Fianna Fail support, if you can prevent that (and potentially have a united Irish team) they could do ok.
    I will take "the Spanish ate tainted seafood the night before" for 500.
    Fair enough. And what's up with the double 1968 Was?

    So I guess the 8-0 is ITTLs equivalent of the 7-1

    Happy to see Mexico have some success at their own cup, and I am more surprised at seeing that Australia managed to get to a final than Finland/Wales winning it all

    Also I remember requesting this list a long time ago. Thank you Kanan for following through!

    Wait @Kanan , if Israel was fascist and allied with South Africa, why is it developed and not sanctioned by other governments ITTL?

    Time for my first post! This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long series in OFC. This will go over the history and coasters of New England's largest amusement park, Lake Compounce, located in Bristol, CT. Note: ITTL, Six Flags does not buy Riverside Park in Agawam, MA. Therefore, with a hole in New England from Six Flags, and the knowledge that Lake Compounce (Now to be referred to as LC) is three times larger than it is IOTL, I am saying that LC is owned by Cedar Fair, the owner of Cedar Point, Kings Island, Kings Dominion, and many other parks across IOTL's US and Canada.

    The history of LC is basically the same, except that in 1994, at the beginning of their expansion period, Cedar Fair bought the current park and the surrounding 700 acres to bring its total size to 1,000 acres, where it stands today. at this time, there were two coasters at LC: Wildcat, which was built by Philladelphia Tobbagan Coasters in 1927, and the Kiddie Coaster, which was built by Molina and Sons in 1990 (1997 IOTL). To christen the park into the chain, Cedar Fair is planning something huge: a new Morgan Hyper on the side of a lake, to be the tallest ever built.

    More to come over the next few weeks!

    Frankly I don't care why they won, just that they did.

    From a suggestion, LC is now being bought by Paramount in 2000, and the Christening is Boulder Dash, a wooden coaster built by Custom Coasters International on the side of Mount Southington in the park.

    Notes: Paramount Parks will not go bankrupt and be sold to Cedar Fair.
    As part of the agreement with the owners, the word Paramount will not be in the name of the park.
    The kid's area will not be changed until 2002, when it is themed to Nickelodeon as part of the Paramount changes after Hanna Barbera goes out of business.
    Because Paramount buys in 2000, there is a third coaster: Zoomerang, a Vekoma Boomerang, opened in 1997.

    Well! So now I guess we know how literally. every. single. conversation between a Welsh and English person has gone since 1956, don't we?

    An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman are sitting in a pub, watching a Welshman lift the World Cup.

    Australia made it to a world cup final. Also that 8-0 loss in the final must have been a national tragedy in Spain.

    An accurate representation of Spain i'd say after that final (rightfully so):

    I'm quite sad we didn't manage to win it twice like OTL...

    But winning it in England against England is worth it
