    Here in the Eastern side of the States they are still finding un-exploded ordinance from the American Civil War. I was visiting a friend in VA when Quantico was called in to remove an unexploded shell that a bunch of kids came upon in the woods. :eek:

    I'm kind of enjoying "tiki-taka" now. :whistling: Mia San Mia :cool:

    Any thoughts on todays results so far ?
    Arsenal still looks very good, two goals by Ozil. He seems to fit perfectly to Wenger and his style of football.
    I only read that Chelsea won 4-1 against Cardiff, I guess a must win ?
    At the moment Im watching Hammers against City...well deserved 1-0 lead for City at the moment, hope West Ham strikes back soon.

    I'm watching the same game. What did the commentator mean when he said it was good that one of the players was traded because he couldn't handle the temptations of Manchester? What does Manchester have that London doesn't?

    Who ever it was has not got a clue what he's on about. Manchester offers constant Rain and dreary cold weather and the singer Morrisey. London's well known for its bored footballers all wondering without anything much to do, umm no not really. ;) Londons the Capital of England, if you cant do it there you cant do it in Manchester. :)

    I love the biased reporting from the BBC, ''Chelsea's equalizer should not have been allowed'' so i guess the other three we got had no bearing on how the match ended then! :roflmao:

    Does the moon care when dogs bark at it ? ;)
    Btw - always wanted you to ask for the most hated local rival, PackerFan71. So which London Team Chelsea Fans hate most ?
    Arsenal ? Spurs ? Hammers ? And what about Millwall or Palace ? :cautious:

    Thats not fair, PackerFan71 though constant rain seem to be true :D


    Indeed Morrisey is a whiner but the Gallaghers are from Manchester too, that means sex, drugs and Rock'n'Roll ! :eek::roflmao:

    For me Nessie without question its Arsenal, because they are the other really big local contender. Maybe Spurs a little bit now also. Fulham i quite like as long as we beat them, (plucky little neighbours). Hammers, Millwall, and Palace don't even really register, but they hate us anyway not that i'm bothered. ;)

    As much as I know Paul (Heaton) lives somewhere close to Manchester where he owns a pub. Hope I can visit Manchester and Pauls pub one day ! ;)

    I'll tell you one thing you can do in Manchester that you cant in London... Drive, and get where you want to get, within reasonable time. London is an absolute nightmare mate!


    Btw, sone great goals this weekend, Arsenals was absolutely superb, possibly one of the best goals I have ever seen teamwork-wise.

    Another 3-0 would be nice mate, although I can't see a way we win. Hate these games regardless of league position and I know I won't be sleeping well Saturday night.

    Bit of a soft spot for Sunderland, we've always recruited quite well from up your way, Jody Craddock, Micky Gray, Alex Rae.
    Hope you guys sort yourself out, HUGE derby this week too. You need to start getting some decent service to Fletcher, he's a pure goal machine.

    i remember meeting Alex Rae once at the SOL. my ex had family down tees-side way, and one summer when we were visiting i went to SOL for a stadium tour, wearing my aberdeen shirt, and bumped into Alex at the end of the tour, he was playing for rangers at the time and when he saw my shirt i heard him saying ffs, but top lad and had a good chat with him

    I already have his ''other'' autobiography, i know most of the stories. Read with interest the part about his regret of letting Japp Stam leave. A no brainer that, brilliant defender.

    Aah right, there is a autobiography from 2000 as well. Just checked it on Amazon UK. Sounds like the new book could be an updated version or at least a similar book with some new stories. As I dont expect it to be published in Germany or even in German I'll try to get me an English copy. :)
    Agree, letting Jaap Stam go wasnt smart, he was a beast and one of the best Dutch defenders ever.
