How many amateur players are needed to beat a top division team? Golden Goal gathered 20 friends to see if doubling the amount of players was enough to beat Oslo's best football team Valerenga in a friendly match.
It's ShotKneesHoop Birthday today - he says he has everything a man could want . . . his sister wanted to send him a Hoops shirt with SWP on the back, but we agreed as he has everything then he can have fookall.
WHat is the strangest birthday present you have every got or given?
I was once given a foot pump.
I once sold a breast pump at a boot sale but that's another story.
I saw the play-off v Derby in Hong Kong with my son. We found a great "pub" on the 5th Floor on Lockhart Road with a perfect feed. Then 5 mins before the start 100 derby fans cam in from other local pubs as the feed failed where they were. Fair enough, there were 4 of us and a few more of them. Thing was you just could not hear the commentary but you could hear the crowd. So we were all very happy for 90 minutes.
So - I have just watched a BBC replay (awful commentary . . the idea as a TV comment tatta is you fill in the picture with information that you can't see. But they tell you the bleeeding obvious.) and I would just like to watch the game with crowd noise only.
Seeing the game on the other side of the world at 10pm was so brilliant, so surreal, so . . . like a dream. Every morning we would watch the goal again and for good measure every evening too.
And I can't help but celebrate and punch the air when we score . . . and I was there in 1967 too. So for me this was the perfect double - when I go to the pearly gates and they won't let me in . . I can al least say - Urz
