Our men in Portugal
Portugal's fans are using the internet in a bid to inspire their team to victory in the Euro 2004 final.
Portugal has been swept away by the euphoria of Euro 2004
They are being asked to form a human chain into the stadium as the Portugal team coach drives to Lisbon from their base 30 minutes away at Alcochete.
The ambition is for the chain to stretch around 10 kilometres from when the coach comes off the giant Vasco de Gama bridge to the Stadium of Light.
It is unlikely to stretch that far - unlike the jams if Portugal win.
After Nirvana's "Nevermind" claimed the title of greatest album of all time - as voted by the English media party - attention turned to the top 50 singles.
And if the climax to the Euro 2004 final between Portugal and Greece is half as dramatic, the tournament will have a fitting finale.
Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" looked home and hosed as the final votes were being counted.
In golfing terms Marc Almond and his musical partner Dave Ball were comfortable leaders in the clubhouse and were trying on the green jacket for size.
But, in a twist that would have done Eurovision proud, a late surge saw The Undertones' "Teenage Kicks" snatch victory.
Cruel indeed on Soft Cell, but a worthy win for Feargal and the lads.
The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" was third, with "Waterloo Sunset" by The Kinks fourth and "Anarchy In The UK" by the Sex Pistols fifth.
The Daily Telegraph's Henry Winter cut a distraught figure when his brave campaign to have Dolly Parton's "Jolene" crowned as the greatest single ever came to nothing.
And reports that the BBC's own Mike Ingham had "Enter Sandman" by thrash rockers Metallica in his selection remain as yet unconfirmed.
The train from Porto to Lisbon on Friday might as well have been renamed the Hellenic Express
Keen not to miss their team's biggest ever fixture, it was packed with Greece supporters.
Their general mood was buoyant if somewhat hungover, with lots of coffee and water on
If only England fans under the age of 35 knew what it was like to reach a major final.
The Portuguese will get the chance to avenge their opening day defeat against Greece but the fixture is not to everyone's satisfaction.
One taxi driver in Porto has been less than impressed with the way Greece have
approached the tournament.
"It is all wrong," he moaned.
"They do not play football and they will lose when they play my country on Sunday."
