I was reminded of this earlier, surely the ever phone in call still makes me laugh

The funny thing is, Micky Quinn could have played for Italy if he'd been good enough.

I must be one of the few posters on here who's been to both football and ice hockey matches in Finland (Ice hockey is the more popular sport). I also took part in 50 km cross-country ski races there (an even more popular sport). Not a great claim to fame, I know.

Do you remember back in the 70s (if you were alive then) when all the Scandinavians playing in the Scottish League were just about the only foreign imports in British football? It wasn't really until Spurs signed Ardiles and Villa from Argentina in 1978 that a trickle of foreign players started to appear in English football.

If you like the great outdoors, I'd recommend it. There are vast forests and thousands of lakes, which are all frozen in winter so you can ski over them.

someone i know through BUSINESS stayed in one of those glass roofed igloo type things in January, they said Finland was brilliant, cant say it'd had ever been that much of somewhere i'd thought about going until then but really liked the idea of that.

You could combine it with Estonia as there are regular ferries between Helsinki and Tallinn, which is a popular destination for Brits.

I've never believed that Niemi one. That guy knew exactly what he was doing. He knew that if he said Niemi was Scottish they would say he's Finnish.

The saints fan that rang in after we lost away at Sheff United a few years back was particularly embarassing, ranting about wanting to win titles and cups and then crying

Ive also been to Ice Hockey I saw a couple of New York Rangers games at Madison Square Garden on a couple of trips to New York , I have also seen Baseball at Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field.

On the foreign imports I am surprised that you didn't cite Ivan Golac as the first foreign import to play in the First Division back in 1978, he made his debut before the Spurs duo

Of course, I remember watching Golac and there were some even earlier than that, like Bert Trautmann. But, as I recall, it was the Spurs' signings of Ardiles and Villa in 1978 that really opened the floodgates for foreign players in England.

One of the first foreign players at Southampton was the legendary founder of organized football in Brazil, Charles Miller, born in Brazil to a Brazilian mother; but he did have a Scottish father.

And who can forget Raimundo Perez Lezama and Sabino Barinaga ?

Went to Finland, well just Helsinki, for about 14 hours as part of our Baltics tour the missus and I recently did. Didn't get to see any sport, but really enjoyed it there and would definitely go back and explore a little further a field. Took the 6am ferry from Tallinn and got back at midnight. Remember doing a walking tour, tram rides, boat to an island fortification and ten euro beers. We did 3 days in Vilnius, 3 in Riga (went to see the stadium but no mention of Pahars anywhere) and 4 in Tallinn.

A woman I used to work with had a Finnish husband and he told me of this place in the north west, on the Sweden border. It is a golf course that goes in and out of Finland and Sweden at various stages on the course and because the border is a time zone, you can hit the ball back in time and into the future and you can play at 4am if you wish, during the summer !!

Have seen ice hockey and football in both Czech Republic (Prague and Brno) and Slovakia (Poprad, Trnava and Bratislava). Like Nick, I have also seen the NY Rangers.

Me and the Mrs stayed a night in one of the igloos. Nice experience but unfortunately snowing so no stars or northern lights to look at
Great trip though for a few days.
Snowmobile over a frozen lake, ice fishing, walking on snowshoes , driving a sled pulled by dogs etc
All things I’ll probably only do once but that’s probably what makes them good

The older I get the better I was
