State income taxes? What's that then?

In my book, I win and you can stuff your 6, where the sun is obviously not shining.
Since we both ended up with weather we like - that'll be a draw, I guess.

I'm not expecting better than 6th, and that's not exactly going to be easy. Staying above 8th is enough for me, though.

Anyway, the good thing about not qualifying for European competition is that you can't get knocked out of a European competition.

Right. Though watch, now as they finish 6th, qualify for the Europa League and get knocked out

I'm a realist - the glass is always full; half water, half air

You know what, you can have your 20 titles. When Man U have won 51, like Linfield, then you can start bragging

It must be something they have in those really greedy states, I think. Never heard of them myself.

I heard that Torquay United are looking for something to do to keep them fit, they might be disappointed though. Anyway, I heard the gate receipts for Linfield went down by 25% when you moved to the US.

You should give it a try while you're there and tell us if it's true.

Finally after alot of deliberation we have decided to move to Reno suburbs Nevada

We like the climate and we have work there, plenty to do and its cheap, plus not over commercialized even though its a Casino town its small and not suffocating, close to Tahoe and better still the airport even closer for Vegas .....not living right in Reno, buying a house in Sparks
