    Thats gonna be brilliant...what countries are you looking at travelling through?

    When I finish school next December I'll also probably be travelling through Europe, mainly to watch alot of football matches and stuff :)D )...no matter what league, just not the English lower league.
    Probably Spain, Italy, Portugal and more. Hopefully I could watch alot of the main teams in those countries because there are often open seats in matches.
    Money spent on football matches is never wasted imo because you're unlikely to forget the experience.

    Pretty boring day I've had. I woke up this morning and looked in the corner of my room where all my boots are and was like 'Woh, I've got Copa Mundials!' and then i realised they were my indoor 7406's. Isn't that just fascinating.:p

    Can I just say that I love sunday league!!

    I decided to go and watch some of the games at the local playing fields by my house. OH MY GOD THEY ARE CRAP!!

    I was watching one team where the ref was struggling to control the players who were contantly abusing him. In the end a fight broke out and even the ref was throwing punches! It was so funny!! hahaha!!

    Haha, sounds like the veteran team at my club. One day two teams were playing against eachother and the guy sat down on the ball in the middle of the match and started pulling weeds out of the ground! The opponent came and kicked the ball out from under the guy and then a fight broke out!:p

    Man you should have seen our first half today, we were pants. I have absolutely had enough of my MVIII's, they STILL haven't worn in. Anyways we were playing the most pants team in the league, and long story short we were 3-0 down at half time...so annoying. Plus I had two mega-blisters cos of my boots and I absolutely blew my top (not very good as captain). I told the team in no uncertain terms that if they didn't want to win the match they could ******** off home now because I'd kick their arses all the way if I caught any of them slacking second half. I'm actually glad to say, despite the blisters I scored and we pulled the game back to 3-3. They had a player sent off for literally stamping two-footed on our wingers' chest - I punched him but I knew the ref so he didn't "see" it (besides he deserved it the bastard).

    Then came the moment of madness - I sent our striker (who had already scored once) clear through on goal. he left the defender on his arse, rounded the keeper, had two people to pass to, and as he shot the fattest fcuker on the pitch ran back, dived in and somehow scrambled it out for a corner! He headbutted the post and picked up a concussion for his trouble, but considering he weighed at least 20 stone, it was quite unbelievable! We were all over them for the last 10 minutes, but I suppose as Arsene Wenger would say, when you're that far behind so early in the second half, you've got to be happy with a point I guess...

    Yeah but you shouldn't be that far behind in the frikin start of the second half! Sorry, still very p'd off about yesterday's match!

    I don't blame you for cr@pping all over them, I hate it when you put in your best effort and other people let you down...thats why I would love to play in a position like Flamini...I love just running around and getting stuck in and then playing some nice balls through, although I do love running down the flank.

    Sain1, I'm getting V1's for Christmas...nothing else. Maybe my parents or sister will pay for the 02/04 Arsenal shirt with GILBERTO 19 I've seen availible. And you?

    Which reminds me, Bigg, what name did you choose for your shirt in the end?

    Woh, just watching Spanglish ATM, whose the actress who is the 'maid'?:eek:

    Think it's got to be Gilberto. I'm gonna order the player size printing n that and I'll heat press it onto the shirt at the shop down the road. I was willing to pay out that little extra just to make it 100% authentic :)

    Leaning towards Adebayor now....:D

    Haha, following the fashion are you! I actually gotta say that hes probably our best striker now...or as long as Henry carries on being an arrogant knob. What was your take on Ali? Besides him looking alot like van Persie from afar he had a good few touches and all until Freddie went off. He didn't seem that bad but when Ade came on we could see what we were missing.

    Ah right its Penelope Cruz...she looks niiice in this movie!:p

    I think people had a go at Ali a bit too much. His work rate was good, he had a couple of nice touches...if only van Persie could bother his arse to run after the ball he could've had a couple of goals. I don't know how much I can deal with van Persie anymore. He is too similar to Henry to play in the same team as him, but when he gets a free run with Henry injured, he just goes crap. His last few performances have been beyond poor. His workrate sucks. His set pieces, bar the one against Fulham, have been ABYSMAL. Yesterday I can't recall one free kick hitting the target, or at least finding one of our players. He looks like such a different player when he plays for Holland...he looks like he doesn't want to be there half the time when he has the Arsenal jersey on. He needs to buck his ideas up, or I think we could be seeing more of Aliadiere and Adebayor up front. But then you'd hear him moaning that he's not playing and so on. He just can't hit a cows arse with a banjo at present.

    I knew Ade would come good. People slated him, and didn't understand why AW bought him, but you can't play Henry and van Persie, their partnership does not work. Ade fills that gap up front, the out and out striker who gets in the box and mops up. How many times do you see the ball go in the box and Henry & RvP are on the edge of the box like lemmings? By the end of the season it will be a question of who to play up front with Ade, not whether he should be playing at all. He's improved shitloads this season, and i'm happy that everyone is gradually getting off his back.

    Yeah I remember every1 carrying on but I was really happy when we got him! Maybe it was because I had seen so many interviews with him about being Togo's main man and all, and maybe because he was was African, but I thought he was brilliant the day we got him. I guess that makes me really cool right now.:p

    Man I know wot apps is saying about sunday league!
    As it's all I play nowadays, I mean as it goes theres less twats than saturday footy but u still get sum, like the big lump of a winger we came up against today with one of those complete atrosity footballers haircuts (where its spiked backwards behind the head and in all directions on top), dude celebrated a mis-hit cross going in like it was deliberate, I talked the ref out of booking him for taking his shirt off in celebration, then he still claims throws that he knows came off him and gets in the face of our smallest player. Made it worse that I got us back to 2-2 then died on my feet ijn extra time as we lose 4-2!
    We'd have won, but their keeper was the little kid that me and my older mates always made play in goal everyday after school, so now he's this amazing keeper who missed out on pro coz he's short...
    Oh yea, and my "good" knee's doing a new and exciting thing!
    Everton & West Ham conspiring to ruin the prem, Cheatski supporters the lot of them!
    Today sport has made me very unhappy

    Plan as of now,

    March 31 Spurs v Reading
    April 2 - 5 Scotland for some golf
    April 6 Man City v Charlton
    April 7 One game in London Arsenal or Chelsea if we can get tickets or over to Reading v Liverpool or maybe even down to Pompey for the United game
    April 9 Villa v Wigan
    April 10 United v Sheff Utd

    Ambitious, but one of my buddies is a member of the USA Man U supporters club and they have a big trip for Easter weekend so we have tickets for the two United games. Now we need to work on the remaining matches.

    I just can't wait for some proper fish and chips with HP sauce and a fresh pint of Boddingtons.

    Depending on what end you want to sit in (home/away supporters), you should definitely be able to get some tickets in the Portsmouth section. The ticket prices are very reasonable, both times we went the weather held up and we got in for £28, which is almost unheard of in the Premiership these days!

    Go to Jongleurs comedy club afterwards, it's hillarious! Its £10 to get in and you get your first drink free! After the comedy finishes it turns into a nightclub and you get into that free as well, which is legendary.

    I didn't know whether I should mention this with CORR around (lol kidding) but the Southampton Ladies Football Team had their Crimbo do in there while I was down and, ahem, I introduced myself to most of them lol. Before you say most of them are ugly or whatever, I had 30 bottles of Stella (with my lovely Survival card - £1.50 each!) during the comedy club and couldn't see straight from 11pm onwards!

    ….and tarnish my Linerker-esque virgin-clean FA record! As he was a mate of my mate I knew it’d all get a bit playground if I started anything like that, especially with this city being as small as it is! Though I did feel the rooney urge to track back and tackle ONLY when that guy had the ball…

    bigg, I heard of rating girls by how many beers it’d take for you to find them acceptable, but my god how bad is a 30 Stella :eek: As it goes there’s a decent level of hotness in womens soccer nowadays (compared to how it was), sure there’s some scary sights, but then for every Becks there a Luke Chadwick!!! Was out with a young lady from the Cheatski coaching staff the other night, couldn’t believe that was her job as she’s more WAG material than coach. I thought the recruitment criteria for female staff at Harchester Utd was fictional!

    And as for Cannavaro being WPoY, well that must all be in sum1’s head!

    OMG, Who here hates Nigella Lawson from 'Nigella Bites' (cooking show) as much as I do?!

    She was just talking about prunes and said "I take a perverse pleasure in massacreing them."

    Then about chocolate cake "The chocolate haunts you from with inside."

    "How can I resist the lure of gorgeous cured ham and piles of sumptous smoked sausages?"

    WTF is wrong with this idiot woman...she doesn't even use the words in the right places!:eek:
