I went on boxing day

Had a lovely meal in Delia's Restaurant with washed down with a few beers

Sat in a warm with coffee and mince pies

More beer at 1/2 time

Then back to the box for more coffee and mince pies while watching the second half

Then off to the players lounge for more beer and the Man of the Match presentation.

I love football:-)

thats a warm box

Live too far away from my team to go and watch a proper game. If I lived closer I'd go though.
14/01/2007 at 13:02
That is not football ;)

Sounds kewl though.

Have have mince pies, but the meat and gristle kind :))

I went yesterday to Pollok v Kinnoull in the Scottish Cup which was 90minutes of rain and misery and men kicking lumps out of each other.

punctuated with the odd goal and slice of football.

Excellent :)

Oh and it was 4-1 yes!

I have that situation Mouse. Tricky.

I travel home on the odd occasion but I now have my West Coast team who i follow.

However, I wear the strip of my home town team under my jumper.

So as not to feel like a traitor :)))

was it cold? dude

Yes but thankfully there was a roof and I had some tomato soup.

Also, thankfully it is all standing and we do not have to sit down. That's how you get cold at the football, this ridiculous obsession with seating.

Hate sitting at the football. Hate it.

However, there is a supporter/maniac who attends every game with shorts on and stands on the opposite side of the pitch.

Yesterday he was there again, in the rain, wind and sleet.

We can't figure out if he is doing it for a bet or if he thinks he is a sub, or what.

I'm 2-3 hrs drive away from my team :-(. Teams where I live now are carp.

Confession time: I used to wear my boyfriends thermals underneath my jeans at football. I miss the terraces as well, I can't work out if it was warmer because we were more huddled together if I was just hardier in my teens.

I turned Sky Sports off this year because my ex moved out. Realised just how much I like footy (even as a girl) and I'm going to have it back on again next season.

57 matches so far this season.

On target for about 110 and rising.

Ever present with my team home and away for well over 2 years, and only missed about 3 matches in the last 4 years or so.

And in betweeen, plenty of ground hopping too. Football simply cannot be beat.

*thermal pant wearer*

no shame in that Mouse.

However, I only watch non-league football so have little interest in Sky.

Don't much like football on the telly, although I might watch Hearts v Celtic later.

What's your team Dandan?
14/01/2007 at 13:46
so does dan dude

but they made it on telly last weekend

Well. Its like this.

Non-league, my home town team of Tamworth and ever present with these for all that time.

League, am a Villa boy through and through, and early to mid 90s I didnt miss a home match for several seasons with them.

Prior to that, several seasons at Tamworth.

Punctuating all that was time at uni. I could never get behind any of the central belt teams whilst I was there(says he sporting his Stenny top and looking a liar) but when I lived in Aberdeen they became my Scottish team, and I followed them nhome and away most matches.

So, Tamworth, Villa and Aberdeen.

And there is no conflict of interest between any of them either.

Been to Everton v Reading today.

Thats all there is to say about it, not much to report.

14/01/2007 at 21:44
Feel you missed a chance last week Dandan.

Few missed chances in the opening moments.

A chap i know through work is a Tamworth fan but lives in Shetland. However, he does go back as much as possible for home games.

That's devotion for you.

Pal of mine supports my home team, Tayport, and travels home from Dubai for home matches.

Big bloke with big hair? I know one who lives on Orkney I think- well, know of him and recognise him but dont know him to speak to. Same bloke?

Match 58 of the season coming up, so long as the rain holds off and the pitch isnt boggy.
16/01/2007 at 16:07
Unfortunately I know him but have not met him.

Just know him from the odd work e-mail and telephone.

There can't be many Orcadian Tamworth fans however :)

I saw Robin Hood Colts Under 7s (White ) Vs Mansfield Woodhouse Colts Under 7s (Red)

Nip and Tuck...but Woodhouse won 3-1

Second half was best with that nifty Irish-International-to-be surging up the right wing and delighting his fans ( me and his brother)

Winning isn't everything, when you have great days like Sunday !


Not sure if the catering was up to Delia's standard but it was so cold, that the Hot Chocolate tasted yummy .

I love watching my boys play football.

ANYTHING can happen, there are loads of goals, very rarely any cynicism, and it's all done with great enthusiasm.

Well done J

(hiya btw)

You are very dedicated to those young'uns.

In American you might be called a 'Soccer Mom' but I would not be so rude.


Kids football is often the best.

Thay are interested in things like passing, dribbling and attacking play which are beaten out of most players in later life ;)
