it's meant to be the red group and the gold group but we've actually got the red group and the Red Cross Group

roflmao Yep.. i love trying to figure out those things.
But it's true.. tricky one this month.  confused
I think it's saying that Switzerland are supposed to be in the Golden Group.. and their opponent in the Red Group.. but since the Swiss' flag is like a white cross on red, you get the Red Cross Group and the opponent (which is the Red Group)
 dontknow i dunno.. maybe im totally wronge!  Whistle

You have to sprint to smiths and then push all the guys out of the way that are reading the footie mags.  When you've done that you have to get down on your hands and knees and rummage around the bottom shelf and if you're lucky you'll find one Smile

 roflmao  thats good! thanks for the help! however such an ace magazine shouldn't be put on the bottom shelf, tennis is just as good as footie, just not as popular! lol
(sorry couldnt resist the cheesy ace bit, you might not be able to tell but my jokes are crap!)

What are you supposed to do? Guess who said the quote?
According to this Telegraph article it is "a player" referring to the stupid number of injuries at the Shanghai Masteres event.

Obviously that doesn't help much though!

I think that a player is saying that the gold group should actually be the red cross group (as in First Aid) because everyone keeps on getting injured.
