    Just got a moment to get online. Disgusted by todays events in the capital, I heard from my sister 7:30am my time, who lives there saying she is fine. Which to be honest was no surprise because she lives and works in North London.

    Anyways hope that THFC1, Jumhead, Lillywhite and the others who have London as their hometown are safe and so are your families. That also goes to all others who use the BS board hope your family and friends are safe and well.

    Without meaning to sound crass, a bomb in Croydon could do more good than bad!

    It never ceases to amaze me what people can do to other people. :(

    ....it's sickening! Croydon should have been flattened years ago!

    (not by a bomb, but by the government)

    dont know if this has been posted i read it on the rugbyrugby messageboards. it was a poem read on BBC Radio

    London Pride

    You come to place your bags of hate
    On bus and train, you made us late
    Yet we'll be back again tomorrow
    We'll carry on despite our sorrow

    Your bags of hate caused some to die
    Yet we stride out strong with heads held high
    You'll never win, we will not bow
    You can't defeat us, you don't know how

    This London which we love with pride
    Is a town where scum like you can't hide
    Don't worry we will hunt you down
    Then Lock you up in name of Crown

    We're London and we're many races
    Just look you'll see our stoic faces
    We all condemn your heinous act
    You will not win and that's a fact

    We'll mourn our dead and shed a tear
    But we will not bow to acts of fear
    You're out there somewhere all alone
    There's nowhere now you can call home

    Olympics ours we've won the race
    Your timing then a real disgrace
    Our strength you'll find remains unbowed
    We're London and we're very proud.

    ....We're ok. You can stand side-by-side with us, you can even hold our hands. But you need to sign Robbie Keane for at least £5 million before you can do that.

    :D

    All are well that I know. My bro was in Russell Square when the bus went boom but is fine , and a mate got on the train that was before the one that got hit.

    And now I'm working nights to guard stuff.

    i got evacuated at westminster but never had a sense that it was anything other than a power surge until i had walked to work in mayfair. My girlfriend's best friend Rachel was on one of the trains and is sill in hospital with shock, we just sent her some flowers. She was in the news:

    It's from the China Daily (don't ask me why)

    Portuguese midfielder Mendes vows to avoid London underground
    (Agencies)
    Updated: 2005-07-08 20:43


    Tottenham's Portuguese midfielder Pedro Mendes says he will no longer ride the London underground in the wake of the bomb blasts that killed at least 37.

    "I have taken the undergound many times and there was never any hint that an attack like this could occur. If you were to ask me today if I would ride the underground again, I would say no," he told Portuguese daily Correio da Manha.

    "The attacks really shook up the English people, who were happy to have been chosen to host the 2012 Olympics," he added.

    London club Tottenham signed the 26-year-old from FC Porto for two million pounds in July 2004.

    Parking can be a bummer, plus he's used to driving on the wrong side of the road, so it's best that he get the W2 bus from Turnpike Lane into Leicester Square.

    with absolutely no intention of diminishing the grief and loss of those affected by the recent blasts - it's gonna take a helluva lot more than that to knock the city of london off its pace.

    great city. bless the locals.
