Just had a nice patriotic roast for Lunch. Last time I did that I ran a PB for ther Stevenage 5k! Hopefully will work for my 3k at Watford tonight!!

Shame the BBC can't put a teeny St. George's cross on thier website. Oh forgot, it 'might' offend someone. Of course, if they actually checked they would find out that it actually doesn't offend anyone.

England arent playing tonight are they ?

thought it was a football thing ...the flag that is

23/04/2008 at 13:52

There are some English players playing tonight (a concept lost on some lesser teams).

23/04/2008 at 13:58
hmmm ...cant think of many
23/04/2008 at 14:04

English players possibly playing tonight? Ferdinand, Brown, Neville (doubtful), Scholes, Carrick, Hargreaves (supposedly English), Rooney.

And that Henry feller - he used to play for Arsenal, so he must be English.

23/04/2008 at 14:06
and the other 12 ?

Welbeck and Heaton as well.

I swear Wenger only keeps Justin Hoyte around so he can play him occasionally and then say "See? That's why I don't pick English players."

23/04/2008 at 14:21

probably true

Welbeck and Heaton... jeez the Barcs will be quaking

23/04/2008 at 14:45
We'll probably keep them on the bench, to terrify the Spaniards with our strength in depth.

not been able to say that much since the days of Phil Neville.......

Wasn't St. George a Turk?

Happy St George's Day !

Kind of, ...............................the western side of Turkey was called Anatolia (ironically Eastern in Greek) at the time of St George and was populated with Anatolian Greeks. So he was actualy of Greek stock but from Western side of what is now Turkey.

He had probably never heard of England and the dragon who he suposedly slew, a legendary Turkish soldier.

I would rather have St. Bruce, the patron saint of Entertainment......

Who's with me?

Nice to see see you....


23/04/2008 at 16:24

It should be someone with at least a loose connection to the country

Bruce? too Aussie or Scotish sounding

Wayne, Lee, Chantle, Chardonnay? 

23/04/2008 at 16:33

St Freddie (Starr) or St Jim (Davidson) or St Ken (Dodd) ?

or for the more classically minded - St Syd (James) St Kenneth or St Frankie - or even St Hattie St Barbara and St June

St Pete St Dud ?

St John St Eric St Terry St Graham ?
