I've told my wife to go ahead and get mad at me now 'coz I'm not going to be able to hear her come saturday. Does anyone know where I can buy a wife-muzzle? HAAHHHH!!!!

    Here in the Eastern US -- watch the bitters and the scum at 7:30. Then a noon party at a friends for the LFC match, then straight to RFK to watch DCU. 12 hours straight of football. :D

    Here in Boston, I am waking up around 11, catching the bus to a bar in Cambridge and watching it live with 3 of my mates, plus meeting about 3-4 others there. I am really looking forward to this :D

    I'll watch the Bitters early (Left wing remember) then Mike and I will watch the lads. Then to decompress we'll take the rest of the beer and go late afternoon sailing on the sound.

    Wonder what the poor people are doing...??? :cool:

    You know, I kind of envy you guys. For some reason, I don't have any feelings about this season. Don't get me wrong, I've got my seat reserved in front of the radio as usual ;), and I'm trying to save up for more than the odd game or two (new mortgage+new baby does not equal financial bliss :(), but I just feel... empty. No buzz, but on the other hand no "Oh God we're doomed, mid-table, Spurs-like obscurity beckons" either.

    I'm sure it will disappear when I hear City's (or Merseyside's) theme tune kick in, I've been 'up' for the European games, but this lack of feeling for the season I find a bit.... odd. :confused:

    We all have times like this. Could be just a letdown from the Champions league matches and like you said, you've been a "little" preoccupied with other things. Like "Oh my god, I've got to work overtime the rest of my life to make life work" And "When will this squalling, shitting thing turn into something that'll go and get a beer from the fridge for me" (All too soon son.)

    Life as you 'knew' it has gone son but the footy feeling will come back. All we need is a good win or a good cup run and you'll be salavating for the next match.
    Congrats on the new baby.
    What name does "it" have on the mini shirt.

    I could be considered a poor person (just graduated and looking for work), I just make sure I can see the games...life is too short to drink cheap beer. In an effort to make you laugh at me, what are Bitters and lads? who is who?

    Not at all .......snicker erm sorry...
    Naw, not to worry. The lads, well they're the team, the boys, the Reds, Liverpool...! Oh yeh "The guys" I forgot I'm bi-lingual now...:)

    The Bitters, well they're the sorry fuckers that play in blue in Liverpool. In fact they're Liverpool's 3rd best team after Liverpool reserves, that is!

    They're bitter because they've always played second fiddle to the lads. Pretty sad lot really.

    Life is too short to drink cheap beer" good words to live by lad. er mate, er guy...!!!

    I'm a poor recent grad as well, looking for work, but somehow I managed to fork over the money for FSC. I can't really imagine life without being able to watch the EPL every weekend. :confused:

    The fact that kick-off is only a couple days away hasn't really hit me yet. Come Saturday I'm sure I'll be ready, but right now I'm still basking in CL glory. :D

    Not to worry, most of the guys here are American (Bi Lingual of course
    You probably know then who the scum Liverbird referred to are.

    Hi guys, sorry about no replies, was out last night.

    I might be overstating the case by saying 'new' to be honest, Luke's 1 but it doesn't feel like it! I suppose I was hoping all the major spending would be out of the way now (yeah yeah, I know, soft me eh?). I'm wondering if I shouldn't start phoning my mum and dad at least once a day just to apologise now I know what it's like! :)

    Watched the bitters last night (with a pint of bitter, coincidentally!), and the feeling for the game hasn't gone, it was still fun sending, erm, 'encouraging' texts to a bluenose friend ;) (and reading the replies, few of which are printable!), so I'm sure it'll go when that first whistle blows. Just one of them things I guess.

    Words to live by! Reminds me, I keep meaning to go back to that pub...

    Trust me, everytime their beloved, shitting, squawling grandson goes home with you, they're smiling.

    Watching the Reds will be your private - away from it all - time...and later, a treasure to pass on to your son.

    You know, Imaskyo, reminds me of an advert on the box over here not so long ago. I think it was for insurance or something, but one of the scenes was a guy in his back yard with his son, he's wearing an Arsenal shirt and holding up a small one to the kid, saying with a look of deadly seriousness on his face (so serious it wouldn't surprise me to find out the actor was actually a goon) "See this son? You're an Arsenal fan. Arsenal!"

    I think it's something we can all relate to... :)

    My buddy Mike named his brat...(well he's 18 now and drives a cool old Land Rover) the same as yours.
    I think it was only so at parties, he can put a 5 gallon bucket on his head and say in a deep voice. "I'm your father Luke" thus embarrassing the crap out of him.
