Default Football debacle...

Bloody hell that was a nightmare... left work at 6pm. Al Ain Road was a parking lot... had to park in a ditch. Walked for 15 mins to reach the crappy makeshift stands. Worked out that even though the radio said the kick off had moved back, that we'd actually arrived at half time. And that Beckham, Kaka and Maldini had now been substitutued....

We stayed for 5 mins and left.

Totally freaking Dubai'd.....

What a shame for all the kids hoping to see Beckham etc play.....

Can you imagine the chaos of the Grand Prix later this year??????

My friend was at the scene of Andy's victory on Saturday-she said(as did you) the strolling tardy VIPs were outta order doin that ...AND
the crowd had to correct the Umpire on numerous occasions for making a cowpat of the score.

Was 'posh' in the ground?

If so, I hope there was a rendition of (to my old mans a dustman)

Posh spice is a slapper,
beckhams weaner canny fill her
When she wants it long and hard
She calls on willie miller



Mexican waves to me signify how much watching the beautiful game has went downhill over the years..

Oh and screaming girls should be evicted immediately, or punched; their choice.

Bring back terracing..(I know, I know)

Maybe some of the pups on here can't remember the 'old' grounds before the prawn sandwich days,,

Certainly not a place for screaming girls (apart from the family section)..

Regarding the atmosphere, I have seen more life in a Chicken Korma...

Yep the organisation was truley awful, left with about 15 to go and missed the traffic mayhem which i am sure followed, suprised no one was run over in the car park, it was a bit like wacky races...

The game was ok for an exhibition, would have liked to have seen Paolo sent off for his ace professional foul... The ref was truley awful I thought...

Mexican waves rule

I love my music and I am a DJ, but even I won't be paying for that!

I thought the footie was ok, more of a laugh than anything else, I got there around 6pm and didn't have any trouble parking or getting in, however I am suffering this morning after running to get beer at half time, I fell over my fat self and twisted my ankle on the stones.

Plus the traffic getting out was beyond a joke, would I go again, probably.
