    Yeah i know that one also, i like ''The ball is round'' meaning it can change direction any second or you can put it where you like.

    Yep History was my fave subject also in school, but i failed it miserably because it was taught so badly - useless teacher. I had relatives that fought in both conflicts and i'm very interested in the subject on an academic level. Womenfolk have chocolate, shopping, shoes and chickflix but we still have the better deal. ;)

    The JFK autopsy report sounds totally dry and ever so slightly morbid as a subject, but i think Sir Alec is a fact fiend and likes the small details. Hes like a Mastermind contestant on subjects he's interested in.

    Ha indeed to each their own. :D

    Or perhaps even a new Car in Finks case. :)

    Btw when is the Concert?

    Its a shame and shows how important it is to have good and motivated teachers.:rolleyes:
    Did you already read the Hitler biography by Kershaw ? I havent so far but I've seen many positive reviews so Im thinking about to buy me a copy.

    At the moment Im somehow focused on American history.
    Just read a book about US history and another issue of "Geo Epoche" about the American Civil War.

    Before that I read the Mao biography by Jung Chang and Jon Halliday
    I can only recommend this book though its sometimes complicated to keep the overview because of all the Chinese names.
    Ah, and if you would like to learn about a real lunatic - get you a Stalin biography ! ;)

    Ha, nice tweet, maybe I should follow her on twitter just to see if she will tweet when in Hamburg. :)
    She will be in Hamburg on Wednesday 21st. I hope weather will be fine because its an open air concert.

    I can only speak of the ones i had most of them were appalling, picking up their wage packets and doing the bare minimum. Thank god for further Education!

    Yeah i have seen it i think, a really big book the cover put me of a picture of the madman on it. Ill look it up though. I have read ''The Third Reich'' A new History by Michael Burleigh a good book, which goes into the mechanics of the subject in detail.

    Cool im interested in Civil war material also. :tup:

    Im not so much into the Communist Dictators, as a result i know so little about Mao.
    Your right Stalin killed more people than Hitler did, and he was on the side of the Allies! Another complete and utter madman.

    Yep she tweets on nearly all her concerts. :)

    I had it last year for a birthday present. I've just renewed for £129.99. Expensive but for a whole season and play off well worth it

    Oh I totally agree. It was only because I didn't know what I wanted for my birthday, the wife offered to pay it for me. It was that or sky for the four months. At least this way I get to see ALL the Packer games for certain.

    Well I figured we might get televised maybe three, four, or if I were lucky five times, but this way I see all 16 season games AND the post season. I don't smoke, I don't drink too much so I may as well get some enjoyment. The wife said no more prostitutes either....pmsl

    Just feel free to do so, guys.
    Its getting interesting :D
    So as much as I understood Bill had to change his leisure activities to get the Game Pass, right ? ;)
    BTW - just signed the Regular Season Subscription and saved some money by doing it with a UK IP. I wonder why Germans always have to pay the highest prices ? :rolleyes::mad:

    I 'm still getting used to Pep's system. Last year I took comfort in watching Bayern lay back and methodically build up a play. This system is so fast and unceasing that it unsettles me.

    Way too expensive, even in the U.S. The NFL is NOT for the working class. It's only for the monied class. They don't care about the middle class fans. Just look at the replacement referee situation.

    Looks like Pep brought the short-passing, ball possession orientied game with him from Barca.
    But Im not sure if he has the right players at Bayern for this system.....?

    Totally Agree, but its the only possibility for me to watch all Packers games. :(
    But at least I saved 30 Euros now because I found a way to book it via UK.
    What would be the cheapest way to watch Packers games on TV in the US?

    Edit: News about your Bavarian president, Croak ;)

    Changing your IP to a UK one ? would not know how to do that. Anyway cool you managed to save some money by doing so. :tup: And here was me thinking it was always us that payed the rip off prices all the time. ;)

    Croak is that because last years system brought all the silverware? sometimes change is for the better. The short passing game is king in my book. The Scots invented it, but we have forgotten how to now. ;) Sounds as though he's trying to implement the Barca method, not such a bad thing even though i hated them they played good stuff and most importantly they were winners.

    Skill beating brute force.

    Pretty easy, PackerFan71.
    I'm using a VPN Service, some are free, for some you have to pay.
    For example:
    http://www.hotspotshield.com/
    I do use HideMyA** and I pay for it because they offer many countries that I can use for an IP change and that saves me money though I'm paying for it.
    Cheaper price when signing a Game Pass Subscription is one example, booking a rental car with Hertz is another possibility. Twice a year, when Im travelling, I am renting my car via UK or Ireland. Compared to Germany always saves me roundabout 100 to 150 Euros every time.
    Or I can watch all the videos on youtube that are usually blocked when they identify my German IP because of the lawsuit between Youtube and the German Music Companies and rightholders.

    The Scots invented it ? :eek: ;)
    Anyway - I didnt know anything about this great 5-1 win at Wembley :tup:
    Good old times :D

    Cool, there's a way round everything. :tup:

    It sounds like a ridiculous boast today, but back then it was a different world altogether football was in its infancy. Scottish players were small but very skillful and fast but inconsistent at least one thing has stayed the same, ;) whats the best way to take advantage of this and of a bigger slower opponent? pass, move pass move.

    Mention that game to loud england fans is usually enough to make them quiet.

    It's not so much the silverware. I preferred the careful ball control and defense where they waited for the opponent to open up a weak spot, then they would exploit it. Ribery and Mueller both say this new way is a lot better. Ribery seems to be featured in this system. But they seem to turn the ball over so much with this way.

    Bayern plays Man City today; I wonder who you will cheer for? :whistling:

    Thats the risk you take with a more expansive and expressive game.
