A Late Swan Song..

The Mute Swan, lives it’s entire life without ever muttering a word, then just as it is about to die sings the most beautiful Song.  . That is an ancient myth they actually produce snorts, shrill noises, grunts, and hisses.. Like the Arsenal supporters when Song plays..

Now I am not saying that Alex Song Billong is about to do the above and I hope that is not his final contribution for us this season.

Yesterday though he actually showed he is not a one trick pony, a slow motion Robbie Savage, he can indeed offer much more in the direction that Denilson seems to struggle in, going forwards, straight ahead.

We started the game yesterday like we always do against the lesser teams, slooowwwwly, when will we ever learn that we are one of Wigan’s biggest scalps and teams like them, we are their cup final,  4 years ago we would have killed this lot off in the first 30 minutes, then strolled and pruned ourselves smugly..

Their goal came from a corner, I blame Denilson in the first instance, he lost his marker again and that allowed the ball to be headed into the danger zone, a quick scramble and a  shot from Mido saw the ball bounce awkwardly and under Fabianski..

Things couldn’t get much worse, it did when a cross came in and Djourou just collapsed on the floor in a heap and after three or four minutes of treatment Mr Lewin called in the St Johns. enter the “Manc Reject”  £750,000 pounds worth..  ;).

Just before half time a innocent ball was played down the middle and “young fellow me lad” Gibbs headed the ball back to the keeper, he never had enough purchase on it and Valencia  took full advantage until he was pulled down.. It looked like a red one to us and looking at Gibbs face I feel he was waiting for a card of that colour..He got a yellow but so should two or three Wigan players for waving the imaginary card around.  The free kick hit the inside of the post with Fabinaski all over the place… then HT phew..

Second half.. 🙂 ..

Things was little better to start with Silvestre was nervous and making mistakes. Then after Nikki won a header somehow between Arshavin and Theo a chance was created.. Bosch Mr Walcott..

After a change of personnel  a little link up play from our two finest, it created a chance for Silvestre to be the fox in the box.

The third goal came from a break that was was out of the Anelka, Overmars era.. We charged forwards with great gusto only for Ade to under hit his final pass, but a cock up by the Wigan defender saw the ball break to Andrei “AK 47” Arshavin.. You just know..

Well the fourth goal.. haha  after some good interlinking play the ball came to Alex “Jinky Jink” Song who rounded two players in a shoulder dropping dribble and banged it home..

Fabianski 7…  Alright. glad he regained his composure, wasn’t sure about the goal or his positioning for the free kick..

Sagna  7….  Steady as always, no problem..

Toure 7.. Played well seems to have settled, not in such a panic now..

Djourou 6.. I haven’t heard how the injury is. he was okay..

Gibbs.. 5.5.. I would have loved him to have done better, I think he would be dropped if Silvestre wasn’t needed at CB.

Denilson . 4.5.. At fault with the goal and a bit surplus to requirements against poor attacking teams..

Song 8.. A bit poor in the first half but his confidence must be rising after his performance in the second..

Fabregas 7.5.. Not at his very best but.. the telling balls are still their, magic man..

Walcott 7.5 (for sale) .. Not consistent enough in my opinion loses the ball too much still and I wish he would roam a bit more, but very lively and a good goal.

Arshavin.. 7.5.. The little man is class, if only they came in pairs..

Bendtner 6.. Not great but as usual good effort..

Subs…

Silvestre 7.5.. A few miss placed passes but good goal Gallas gets a medal when he does that..

Ade.. 6.5..

Rvp… 6..

Marks .. 6/10 Can do better and we need too.

All the papers are saying we was lucky.. Man U do this every week..

    Well done avenell

    I’m so jealous that you got to go to the pub and have a beer in the garden!!!!!!!!!!

    While you were gone the job of Garden designer seems to have been taken up by the esteemed Rasputin – how much did you tell him you wanted to spend 😆

  2. peachesgooner says:

    …..and I don’t think our Song will have a Swan Song for many a year……….

  3. avenell says:

    The only downside is Mill met a new friend called Chelsea.. 😦

  4. kelsey says:

    NICE POST AVENELL,
    SUMS IT OP VERY NICELY.dID YOU COPY AND PASTE IT AT THE PUB 🙂

  5. rico01 says:

    Ave – dreadful post, can’t believe you put Theo up for sale 😦

  6. kelsey says:

    sorry about the capitals,the dog was on my lap.

    Very nice of you to offer a house swop rasputin,but after careful consideration,I think i might decline,god knows why ? 😉

  7. kelsey says:

    rico,theo is a bosch.

  8. avenell says:

    Thanks Kelsey.. I was writing it this morning when London emailed.. so I put his on first.. He has spent a serious amount of time and effort on his post and it was a shame to waste it.. or mine so we done two….

    Hehe that bit was for you rico.. 🙂

    I cannot believe that you used the word jinked in your comment when I already had the Post wrote.

  9. rico01 says:

    Spooky ave 😛

  10. avenell says:

    That dog of yours is a bit of a upper case Kelsey.. 😉

  11. peachesgooner says:

    theo must be ariston and on and on surely 🙂

  12. rico01 says:

    peaches – in my eyes he will always go on and on, i really rate him, he is still a pup and will only get better 😛

  13. avenell says:

    Theo is the new duracell bunny.. I said bunny 😉

  14. rico01 says:

    He hasnt got a copper top ave 😉

  15. rico01 says:

    has everyone gone now ??

  16. peachesgooner says:

    It wouldn’t suit him 😉

  17. rico01 says:

    ok, i am offski

    Catch you all soon…

    Sleep tight, and nighty night

  18. peachesgooner says:

    I’m here rico – have you had a nice day, what was your weather like?

  19. Rasputin says:

    That’s the worst post I’ve ever read…Complete bollox – all of it; avenell 🙂

    Was Sing-a-Song-along-a-max the official MOTM? He learned his surging forward runs and penalty box jinks from King Kolo.

    Kelsey, don’t you fancy it on my Hertfordshire hillside? I don’t think it was wise of you to admit your canine fetish on line 😉

  20. peachesgooner says:

    Oh no, I must be invisible again, nite rico catch up tmoro 🙂

  21. Rasputin says:

    Who said that?

  22. rico01 says:

    Hi peaches – its been good thanks, we have been cleaning up the animals, and digging worms for the chicks – yes i know, not everyone’s cup of tea but its really good fun. One is a little bit less forward than the others and she just wants to be everywhere we are, nightmare when trying to clean them 😉

    Grim old weather though, how about you, what have you all been up to this easter sunday 😛

  23. avenell says:

    Peaches is.. Alf of Avenell Road..

  24. peachesgooner says:

    No joke rasp he did take his goal well but even I could have got through the Wigan defence by then – they were a tad demoralised

  25. Rasputin says:

    Rico – do you know the technique fisherman use to collect worms?

  26. peachesgooner says:

    Oh no….I don’t understand ave 😦

  27. rico01 says:

    I thought are goals were good, all of them, but my concerns is the ones we give away –

    Have to also say that some of Ade’s first touches yesterday were very unlike him – they were bloody good 😉

  28. Rasputin says:

    Which of our rhythm deprived white guys tried to join in the African samba for Song’s goal celebration?

  29. rico01 says:

    rasp – does it begin with F and end in a G ….

  30. Rasputin says:

    Competition for places is the greatest incentive for self improvement and hard work Rico. Ade has looked like a much livelier player since he came back.

  31. Rasputin says:

    No Rico – you’ve got a filthy mind. They put sacks down on bare soil and soak them with water at sunset and in the mornng, all the worms have come to the surface and can be collected from under the sacks.

  32. rico01 says:

    Rasp – I agree, we hoped that he would be like this, long may it remain 😉

  33. rico01 says:

    Is that not called ‘Fiddling’ for worms Rasp 😦

  34. Rasputin says:

    Blimey rico – you’ve taught me something there. I had to google it! I shall never underestimate your vast knowledge again 😉

  35. peachesgooner says:

    Rico – after collecting the singing one from the airport and feeding the washing machine I ventured down to my greenhouse and managed to do some potting-on before a girl-friend popped in for a cup of tea.

    Did you know you can buy worms on the internet? When we dig over a site to prepare for planting we do a random worm count, everyone shouts out when they find a worm – if we don’t find 20 in 5 minutes then I order some from wigglyworms.com and throw them onto the ground after planting. We all have to stand and be scarecrows so that they don’t get eaten immediately 🙂

  36. rico01 says:

    😳 – i have just google that, Fiddling is to do with using tools to catch worms 😦

    Rasp, so do I need to put sacks down overnight, take them up in the morning ready for the chickens ??That would save my old bones 😉

  37. Rasputin says:

    Its worth a try rico. We have loads of sacks at work if you want them, although I don’t know how I’d get them down to you.

  38. peachesgooner says:

    Blimey rasp should I do that too?

  39. Rasputin says:

    No peaches, just play your daughter’s music to them and they’ll be enchanted to the surface 🙂

  40. rico01 says:

    I got my methods wrong Rasp, but on the right track – kind of 😉

    Sounds like a busy but nice day then peaches, so it should have been on a day off – You know, I never knew you could get worms on the internet, and that is funny, you having to be a scarecrow 😛 We need to make one as the bloody crows have been back pinching the corn again today 😦

  41. peachesgooner says:

    You’re such a charmer rasp 😆

  42. Rasputin says:

    The bloody crows are digging craters in my lawn every morning from 6 am onwards in search of leatherjackets. On top of that, they make that dreadful loud ‘cawing’ sound that’s enough to wake the dead.

  43. peachesgooner says:

    Its so funny to see – the worms come in a pouch and as you cut it open and lay them on the ground its as if a siren has gone off and you are transported to the set of The Birds – the worms dovetail so fast as we stand flapping our arms around……..

  44. kelsey says:

    sorry i didn’t get back to you ras, i am asleep.

  45. peachesgooner says:

    As long as its not the bowling green you may still get to swap with kelsey 🙂

  46. rico01 says:

    Rasp, that is so kind of you, thanks.. we have some old sheeting in the shed somewhere – we will give it a wizz – if that fails I will send one of the crows over to you to get the bags 😉

    What a lovely man you are rasp 😛

  47. peachesgooner says:

    ah there you are Mr Bowling Champion

  48. Rasputin says:

    Don’t let us keep you up kelsey – but its very impressive that you can post even when asleep……

  49. Rasputin says:

    Don’t forget rico – the important part is to really soak the ground. I think the worms come to the surface in search of oxygen…..and you’re not so bad yourself 🙂 😎

  50. rico01 says:

    peaches – thats sounds almost unreal, like a pouch of cat food… but without the cat…. hope no-one see’s you all flapping your wings, it must be like a scene from chicken run 😉 (no offence meant)

  51. rico01 says:

    Rasp – thank you 😳

    this will make you chuckle, each year as the blackbirds have their babies, they are on our lawn in desperate search of worms for the young…

    we are so naughty, every night we put the hose on, with the sprinkler on the end and water the grass 😦 They love it, they come out in search for food and have a wash at the same time… During the hosepipe ban I used to wait for the ‘knock on the door’ – thankfully it never came 😉

  52. peachesgooner says:

    exactly like a pouch of cat-food rico – everyone thinks its an absolute hoot

  53. peachesgooner says:

    rico – you must need an everlasting supply of worms

  54. rico01 says:

    peaches – you are so lucky having such a wonderful ‘job’ in life, both you and Rasp – I dont doubt its bloody hard graft, but it must be the most rewarding thing at the end of a project – so so lucky .. And little quirky things along the way like the worm pouches, make it sound so much fun aswell 😉

  55. Rasputin says:

    rico, I know someone who got a £2,000 fine during the last hose ban. The water company flew overhead and took an aerial photograph. I also know of someone who got fined because their less than friendly neighbour reported them and took a photo from an upstairs window, so you’d better supply your neighbours with free eggs during times of drought…..

  56. rico01 says:

    we do, but to be fair peaches, the chicks just love the excitement and anticipation of finding one – they seem equally happy to find a grass root 😉 They just love the spade that digs, and the soil to scratch around on – and its lovely, when i sit down on the bench, the babies jump up on my lap and just sit with me…. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh 🙂

  57. Rasputin says:

    I’ve been out for a long walk today rico and the spring lambs are everywhere. They are the epitomy of cute – following allong dutifully after their mom’s. These days they are all dyed with a number that links them to a particular ewe (their mother). They are so sweet, it doesn’t bear thinking about what’s in store for them. Its my favourite feature of spring along with the sound of woodpeckers and the Hare’s having a punch-up.

  58. peachesgooner says:

    I did three complete gardens during the summer of the hose-pipe ban – including new turf. I get special dispensation as a builder to use water on site but one of the gardens had a guy from Thames Water living next door – each morning hed tell me how he’d had a stream of people beating a path to his door to tell him how I’d been using water the previous day…….

  59. rico01 says:

    Mmeeee – thanks Rasp, best I remember that this summer 😦 I do get told off by the ‘better’ one in the house, but I dont usually listen 😉

    Right you all, I now must go and sort the indoor animals out, they need looking after too….

    You all take care, have a fun evening, sleep well and stay safe,

    Thanks for a good day guys and gals

    Nighty night 😛

  60. peachesgooner says:

    Listen to us how pleased we are with the spring 🙂

    rico – your chickens sound lovely

    rasp – you’ll just have to stick to fish fingers

  61. rico01 says:

    Rasp – how lovely and dont they just all look so so cute, I dont eat them, but at least those running around do get some kind of life. We saw a few hares fighting a few sundays ago, they are so funny, mad march hares 😉 we dont hear the woodpecker often, just the owls and the deer, and they bark so bloomin loud !!

    peaches – you should just tell him – which part of of what they moan to him about concerns you ?? You dont set the rules 😉 Some folk eh 😉

  62. Rasputin says:

    The whole water thing is a nonsense. Firstly, we should never have allowed the water companies to fall into foreign ownership – they don’t invest in repairs and infrastructure. Millions of gallons of water are lost through leaks every day and in many cases the water companies do not consider it cot effective to carry out expensive repairs. Also, during the 70’s and 80’s, the farmers installed miles of land drains that carry the water away quickly onto rivers and out to sea instead of allowing it to collect in the natural underground aquifers.

  63. rico01 says:

    I will ask ave if i can put some pictures of them somewhere on here, i am sure he wouldnt mind… they really are something else peaches, i know i shouldnt keep going on about them, but they are just so funny and stupid 😉

    Right – i am definately off now, nighty night all 🙂

  64. Rasputin says:

    I know you want to get off rico, but have you ever seen that fantastic book by Kit Williams about the Golden Hare. It was the first of the ‘treasure hunter type’ books, full of the most beautiful illustrations that held the clues to where this bejewelled golden hare was bried.

  65. Rasputin says:

    bried = buried

  66. Rasputin says:

    Too late – nite nite rico, thanks for your company 😉

  67. peachesgooner says:

    Thank goodness there is now legislation to stop concreting over front drive-ways – some of the new water storage systems for under patios and drives are really clever. Of course they up the budget which means in most cases the water gets lost.

    Also people don’t seem to want to flush their toilets with brown water……….

  68. peachesgooner says:

    Looks like its you and me rasp – kelsey must really have been asleep, hard life clearly.

    Did you say its gonna rain the rest of the week?

  69. Rasputin says:

    Yes peaches – I suppose the sort of peole who can afford expensive new houses with buried water harvesters do not want their guests to flush the loo with water that looks like diluted diarrhoea! – actually though it doesn’t does it? I though they had filters in that make it almsot clear.

  70. peachesgooner says:

    Ok, maybe its just me then…….what happened in the other game today peaches…….I don’t know peaches but I can probably find out for you……..

  71. avenell says:

    Ras .. just reading where they found the next bit of body.. 2 miles from where I used to live.. 😦

  72. rico01 says:

    Rasp 😉

    In 1980 a children’s book hit the headlines after selling over a million copies. It told the story of how the Moon, having fallen in love with the Sun, enlisted the help of Jack Hare to take her a bejewelled treasure, and how on his journey Jack lost the treasure.

    The book was of course Masquerade by Kit Williams published 1979.

    The story was simply told and every page held a wonderful piece of artwork. Each of the pictures contained many animals or characters, such as Tara Treetops or Isaac Newton and hidden away in every picture there would be a hare to find.

    Nighty Night 🙂

  73. Rasputin says:

    It feels like the Alamo on here tonight peaches. Ave’s buggered off for another beer and to put some calamine on his sunburn (you don’t think it was because I told him his post was bollox do you?) and kelsey’s having his beauty sleep 😦

  74. avenell says:

    We had our spring water contaminated with all that rasp..

  75. Rasputin says:

    Yes rico, its Masquerade I was talking about. Its my most cherised book. Sleep well

  76. avenell says:

    What is Rico on.. lol..

    Of course you can put pics on .. send them to me as a jpeg and I will sort it!!!

  77. peachesgooner says:

    They do use carbon filters that need to be changed every so often but the problem is then one of maintenance, I think thats why there is a suggestion of browny water – your suggestion of diluted diarrhoea, is that topical – anything to do with your curry 🙂

  78. Rasputin says:

    Hi ave – so you are there 😉 Yes I remember you telling me about your guano pollution. It doesn’t bear thinking about? Still thye do say every drp of tap water has already been through a human body 7 times.

  79. avenell says:

    We have to use UV tubes and filters..

  80. avenell says:

    I only drink Kylies.. 🙂

  81. peachesgooner says:

    Oh no I may have shattered the moment 😳

    Hi ave – have you had a nice day then

  82. Rasputin says:

    How did you know I had a curry tonight peaches? Actually I had a chicken tikka (sorry rico 😦 ), onion bhajee, sag aloo and pulao rice – very tasty mmmmm

  83. peachesgooner says:

    Citeh got beat at home by Fulham – I reckon the sheik is not too happy about his investment

  84. peachesgooner says:

    Hmmmmm a little worm told me rasp 🙂

  85. peachesgooner says:

    …….actually shes not a worm at all she a perfectly gorgeous little bird…….:)

  86. Rasputin says:

    I thought kylies was rhyming slang for shoes (brogues), do you know another ave – or were you referring to that ladies watery output? 😉

  87. peachesgooner says:

    rasp !!!!!!!!!!!

  88. Rasputin says:

    Its alright peaches – we can get smutty, nobody’s reading … 😆

  89. avenell says:

    Would you drink her bathwater? xx ..bit early lol.. steady get down Hugh..

    Yes thank you Peaches apart from the cold.. that I don’t like to talk about.. 😉

  90. peachesgooner says:

    You might be able to get an early night tonight ave…..then tomorrow you can feel all better…..

  91. Rasputin says:

    Its all love and harmony on here tonight ave – get some rest. I’m turing in, I’ve got work tomorrow. Nite nite Peaches, ave et al 🙂

  92. avenell says:

    Okay Rassy nite mate..

  93. peachesgooner says:

    I thought you might like to make me a cup of coffee rasp

  94. avenell says:

    Peaches …. if you are there have a look in girlie bits .. it was our water supply after we cleaned the pipes out after the contamination..

  95. peachesgooner says:

    Urrgggghhhhhh – ave thats positively disgusting

  96. avenell says:

    We buy the water in now Peaches..
    It’s a different world down here sometimes..

  97. peachesgooner says:

    Does your washing water still look like that? Did you say it was seeping from farmed land – lots of nutrients…..

  98. avenell says:

    It was Peaches.. but the farmer has been told to “F” off.
    It seeps into our land because of a change to the water course because of a recently dug fishing lake opposite..
    Where it comes through we get our wormery and MOLES!!!

  99. peachesgooner says:

    Lovely…….we’ll have to see if we can keep it moving then won’t we……in one end and out the other so to speak 😳

    I’m gonna say goodnight too ave – you’ve done a great job today, wish you better, talk tmoro xx

  100. avenell says:

    Thanks Peaches.. Goodnight.. x

  101. rico01 says:

    Cock-a-doodle-doooooooooooooooooo

    Morning Roadsters 🙂

  102. rico01 says:

    Anyone else think that Arsene’s ‘tell all i/v’ yesterday was,

    A, To get us fans to understand and get back behind him ( those who had lost faith i mean)

    B, An indication that he is going to buy a few good players this summer ??

  103. kelsey says:

    The new proposed Summer Schedule for AR.

    5.00-10.00…. All the breaking news in the (far to) early show with rico and kelsey.

    10.00-14.00…. general comments including a lengthy debate about all our injury news.

    14.00-17.00 siesta

    17.00-19.00 The happy hour(s) half priced comments and anything goes,including cooking lessons.

    19.00-24.00 The Horticultural Society with Avenell,peaches and rasput and rico.

    PS the occasional Arsenal football related story is allowed periodically 🙂

  104. rico01 says:

    Morning kelsey – thats very funny 😛

  105. kelsey says:

    Good [point rico,for all our listeners to debate.
    Firstly that was a direct translation by the NOW from an interview Wenger gave to L’Equipe.I have had a gut feeling that we will inject money into proven players in the summer,and to an extent I think Wenger is beeing honest enough to admit some mistakes and that to win trophies or at least put in a proolonged challenge to the other top 3 he has to balance the youth project with more experience.

    This really is an eventful week for a lot of the squad who have never played in 2 such high profile games before,and if things go against us,are there enough experienced players to right the situation.i am not suggesting we will lose,but i expect some really tight games with villarreal and Chelsea.

  106. kelsey says:

    Vill a real Arsenal stand up on wWdnesday 🙂

  107. rico01 says:

    kelsey –

    Thats how I read it too, he has obviously suffered aswell as us at times, and he also knows we were playing really badly, he even questioned his own training methods…

    We have enough youth now, but we do as you say just need an injection of quality and experience to get the right balance.

    I personally am fine with both our keepers

    But 1 player in midfield, up front and defence will do. I also think we need to show the door to a few too, and that should help balance the books.

    another funny comment, you are on the ball 😉

  108. peachesgooner says:

    Morning

    So many comments to answer so early in the morning 🙂

    kelsey – I love the scheduleing (spelling rasp) very funny

    rico – Its good for a man in his position to come clean every now and then, we’ve questioned a lot of his decisions this season – I think he wants to apologise for putting us through the wringer and I take my cyber hat off to him 🙂

    – Buying new players?????? I’m not sure about that. He may inject the steel we’ve been crying out for in mid-field and probably another defender but I don’t think he’ll go overboard.

    Just my opinion.

    How are we all – its still not sunny 😦

  109. avenell says:

    Morning all..

    Am I due on yet Kelsey.. lol

  110. peachesgooner says:

    Hi ave – they’ve all gone to enjoy the sunshine 🙂

  111. avenell says:

    It’s all gone today for us.. 😦

    I suppose it’s ironing day for you.. After all your washing.
    Is there any footie on? Easter monday used to Be a good day, I remember we beat Chelsea 5-1 once on EM..

  112. rico01 says:

    I am here all, Morning ave and peaches, we have sunshine 😛

  113. avenell says:

    Morning Rico.. did you look in my sink?

  114. peachesgooner says:

    rico – we have not a sign of the clouds parting 😦

  115. peachesgooner says:

    Ironing????? Ironing is for sissies – not me, not in the daytime – I have some artistic hedge-trimming to do – have to eat my porridge first………keep talking

  116. rico01 says:

    Thats not so good peaches, maybe in a while the sun will appear, you are not that far away –

    Ave – that is too cryptic for me 😦

  117. avenell says:

    Rico.. you don’t read last nights comments do you.. caught you out there..
    It’s in girlie bits.. send me those pics you wanted on and I will sort them for you..

  118. rico01 says:

    Ave – sorry, just realised, i have looked at the picture, its pretty grim 😦

  119. peachesgooner says:

    have a look in the girlie bits rico – we had a discussion about brown water last night

  120. rico01 says:

    Ah, no so naughty boy, I did read them, I just didnt cotton on quick enough 😉

  121. rico01 says:

    you know i am not the brightest button in the box, how dare you try and expose me as such on here 😉

  122. rico01 says:

    We have just taken some more pics, so hopefully will be able to work out what to now do with them and get them emailed by midnight 🙂

  123. avenell says:

    Rico.. start an email.. there should be an attachments icon at the top.. If you could compress them (don’t worry if not) and attach to that as a jpeg.. Then send as normal..

  124. rico01 says:

    ok smartie pants, i need to download them from the camera first 😉

  125. avenell says:

    It’s not on your brownie is it? 😮

  126. rico01 says:

    It is ave, thats why i dont think they can be downloaded 😉

    Hi Roadsters and Roosters,

    UEFA are just plain insane to have the CL final in Rome – see attached link. I wouldn’t let any of my family go to the final! It almost seems that their police sit back and watch as foreign fans get butchered. I’d like Mr Platini to get his buttocks slashed, it might change his anti English bias…

    Morning Rasp – couldnt agree more, the final location should be moved.

    It should be at the emirates, we could have home advantage then 😛

    Hi rico,

    Its not even funny is it? I mean someone could die at the final whichever teams are involved. These ultras are psycho’s – I don’t know whether its to do with fascism, gang warfare or what, but it should not be tolerated by society and encouraged by UEFA 😦

  131. rico01 says:

    I know Rasp, they have moved the cricket 20/20 i think to South africa because of the terrorist fears, why cant they move the CL Final – a death is a death, which ever way it comes about – Even if i could afford to go if we were in the final, I wouldnt for love nor money go !

  132. rico01 says:

    I may be wrong on my last, might be muddling it up with the WC, sorry 😦

    Nevertheless, the CL final should be moved well away from italy

  133. Rasputin says:

    It’s OK rico, we’re all invited round ave’s to watch the final on his wide screen surround-sound telly. He’s supplying the pasties and Exmoor Ale – chickens welcome 😉

  134. rico01 says:

    Wow, that is a generous offer, may I book ten seats please ave 😉

  135. rico01 says:

    I am off to hose down some patio furniture, back in a while 😛

  136. avenell says:

    Only got a old B/W Fidelity. and Neqwuay Steam real Lager.. No good for you old AK boys from the R and W..

    Chickens most welcome.. 😉

  137. Rasputin says:

    I hate AK and Country – they’ve been doing a speciality ale called Sweet Chariot for the 6 nations which isn’t bad though.

  138. avenell says:

    Do they still do country? When I were a boy AK was mild but it somehow turned into Bitter.

    The lager was Hartsman.. It still tasted like Bitter..

    We used to repair McMullens cars and vans.. The old man Mcmullen kept driving off with the petrol pump nozzel still in his filler neck in his Volvo.. lol..

  139. Rasputin says:

    I’ve been known to drive off with my filler neck in a volvo…. 😆

  140. avenell says:

    How embarrassing… 😳

    Owning a Volvo.. 😉
