I even liked Arsenal for a while. Embarassed Bergkamp, Overmars - a delight to watch.

And their footie skills weren't bad either.

Here you can see 27 more Bergkamp gems http://video.google.nl/videoplay?docid=6734250401481740830#
And here you can see all the goals of this afternoon match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B7PsajYrc8
Goal number 5, made by Elia is a beauty! He was just brought in to the game 20 second before and it was the first ball that he got! He is a revelation this youngster!

Dont worry Will. She's sitting here with me on the tarmac at Schipol. We've just landed and are on our way to see De... well let's just say that we have an "appointment".

She's says not to worry - she left you some things in the fridge that shouldn't have quite gone off yet, and the menu for the pizza shop is by the phone.

The Scottish Weather, Southern Softies and the World Cup

Post  fiona on Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:53 pm

There is a link between all those mentioned in my title; it goes like this:

At 50F people in Southern England turn on the central heating while people in Edinburgh plant out bedding plants

At 40F Southerners shiver uncontrollably while Glaswegians sunbathe on the beach in Largs

At 35F Cars in the south of England refuse to start while people in Falkirk drive with the windows down

At 20F Southerners wear overcoats, gloves and wooly hats while Aberdonians throw on a tee-shirt and girls start wearing mini-skirts instead of bikinis

At 15F Southerners begin to evacuate to the continent while people from Dundee swim in the River Tay

At 0F Life in the south grinds to a halt while people in Inverness have their last Barbecue before the weather turns cold

At -10F Life in the south ceases to exist while people in Dunfermline throw on a light jacket

At -50F Lassies in Peterhead put their knickers on for the first time that year

At -80F Polar bears wonder if it's worth carrying on while Boy Scouts in Oban start wearing their long trousers instead of kilts

At -100f Santa Claus abandons the North Pole while people in Stirling put on their long johns

At -173F Alcohol freezes and there are riots in Glasgow because the pubs have had to shut.

At -297F Microbial life starts to disappear. The cows in Dumfriesshire complain about farmers with cold hands

At -460F All atomic motion stops. Shetland women start knitting new jerseys in case there's a cold snap

At -500F Hell freezes over
And Scotland will support England in a World Cup!!! Very Happy Laughing bounce cheers

Oh, dear God.

The next month will be sheer purgatory for me, living as I do a mere stone's throw from one of Manchester's largest football stadia and being the only person in a workforce of @ 60 who has absolutely no interest in football whatsoever.

Yes, that's right; I live in Manchester, probably the world's most famous footballing city, and I hate the game. Not only that, I don't drink either, so I can't even numb myself to it all in an alcoholic stupor.

Still, there's always Wimbledon.

Or Big Brother, the final series.

Kill me now.

You should have said that earlier because I'm sure we could have come up with a way to effect it that would have won Britain's Got Talent.

Well at least you have a Harley.

And what's the point spread in the World Cup? A couple of touch downs?

Go TEAM USA!!!

Surprised a lot of people ...say what?

Are we about to see a (almost) rerun of the 1960 TEAM USA Ice Hockey Team (an all ametuer, mostly college kids) that beat the Russias pro team, and then went on to win the Gold...?

How cool that would be...?

Go TEAM USA!!!!

Apart from the obvious mistake I thought England played very well last night and their passing was excellent and they held the majority of play. This comp has a long way to go and I'm more hopeful than I've been in a long time. INGURLUND...INGURLUND...INGURLUND. INGURLUND..INGURLUND..INGURLUUUUUUUND.

A fair result between 2 good sides afraid to lose.

I think a lot of 1st round games between serious contenders will go like that.

Now down to who beats who else in the group and by how many.

You've no idea how hard it was to hide the very large smirk on my face, being as I was the only Scot in a party of 65 ingerlundites when that became a final score. Word on the street is that Robert Green has been given the freedom of the city of Glasgow.

Was also passing through the centre of Delft when the final whsitle went in the Holland vs Denmark game. A very large number of orange people (many of whom for some reason were dressed like Leprechauns) went a bit daft. I got the impessin that very few people were at work in Delft this afternoon.

Hans/Ed,

Slightly surprised to see Giovanni Von Bronchorst skipping the Netherlands.

Might as well have picked Pierre " I don't want to play with you any more so I'm taking my ball home" van Hooijdonk as well.

Smile

Fiona,

Unsurprisingly, both the above were stratospheric superstars in Scottish Football but did not fair so well in Ingerlund.

Mark Viduka was also a Scottish superstar as well after he left the highly politicised atmoshpere of Dynamo/Croatia Zagreb, but then he went to Leeds Utd. so, unlike the above, he was brilliant just because of that.

Very Happy

Well Jim it's a new make by German company Adidas and is a tad lighter/smoother and spins/moves around a bit more apparently.

At altitude (as in some of the venues) this tendency is exaggerated somewhat so the story goes.

I heard somewhere that Adidas snuck a supply out to the German League seemingly and they have been practising with it in their top league for this past season apparently and have got used to it.

Still was a basic error from Eng goalie Robert Green though. He set up to take an easy ball at an angle with his hands to the side instead of being square behind the ball in order to block a fumble.

Whilst this is OK for a rugby full back, as if he fumbles the ball, it goes behind him and he avoids the knock forward, it is unforgiveable for a football goalie.

This won't be the only goalkeeping howler - you wait and see.

There was one yesterday (Ghana?) that almost looked like a deliberate miss.
