The Chudley Cannons adopt a new motto

The Chudley Cannons Quidditch team, famous for its 80 years of futility, changes its motto in 1972 from “We shall conquer!” to “Let’s all just keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best” (QA7).

Commentary

Notes

The Cannons and their losing ways are a standing joke in the League. The team usually sits at the bottom of the table.
