it looks like this
[('Scott Sinclair', 1, 2), ('Reading comeback', 1, 2), ('Premier League', 1, 2)]
the bracketed entries can vary though, some times there could be more or less.
for item in thelist: thefile.write("%s\n" % item) # thefile is the stream thelist is the list structure
i get the error not all arguments converted during string formatting
i think my list is a bit weird, but it has to stay in that structure
