New web address : WWW.CHFORUM.INFO or WWW.CHFORUM.COM

New shorter web address.
http://WWW.CHFORUM.INFO or http://WWW.CHFORUM.COM

Please adjust you bookmarks accordingly!

Great game - incredible speed of play. Shame about the result, but prefer them to lose now, and not in 3 years time!
Roll-on the next world cup!
