"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Friday, 18 June 2010


The weekend starts here - it's all very spur of the moment.  Back in a day or two.  Hope you all have a great weekend and that England thrash Algeria this evening :-)


  1. Have a great one, too, GV. As for England, I'm not optimistic after watching the champions elect, Germany!

  2. VG GV. Hope you have a grand time. Will rendezvous after much BOWTIME Monday then.

  3. England thrash Algeria? Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear....
    A bit from the left field, but in the words of the song from Les Miserables...
    "I dreamed a dream my life would be...so different from this hell I live in!"
    Of course, we should be used to this by now!

  4. Hope the break was OK because the rest............................................................................................

  5. Hmmm, thank you all. It has to be said that Friday night could have been better - still, at least they qualified so it could have been worse.

  6. Football is not your game, is it GV, if you think that England have qualified?

    Where there is life, there is hope?

  7. ? They have qualified, Bugger. I believe it's a team beginning with 'S' that didn't - you know, the team with some sniping, mean-spirited fans.

  8. I must be watching a different World Cup then. the tiddlywinks one perhaps?

  9. Group C teams W D L GD PTS
    Slovenia 1 1 0 1 4
    USA 0 2 0 0 2
    England 0 2 0 0 2
    Algeria 0 1 1 -1 1

  10. GV

    Unless the rules in the qualifying stages have changed, always possible, as I haven't been giving the rules minutiae any time, the only team to have qualified in Group C is Slovenia.

    Thus Englerland have to play Slovenia and USA to play Algeria.

    Engerland MUST beat Slovenia and with a good goal difference to be reasonably sure to qualify.

    If Engerland draw or lose and Algeria beat USA by a good set of goals, Engerland are out and Algeria are in.

    If USA and Algeria draw and Engerland draw it is down to GD between USA and Engerland.

    My real dilemma has been who to support, France (bit late for that one),or Denmark (not enough talent in depth). The Engerland games give me no dilemmas about who who to support.

    Who will win?

    So far my money would go on Portugal and Brazil.

  11. Forgot

    If USA win and Engerland win it is also down to GD.

    If USA win and Engerand lose etc

    Keep whistling and don't put the light on.

  12. Don't take it too seriously, Bugger - it's only a game.
