Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 - New Zealand

It takes a lot of bottle for a referee to uphold the laws of the game . Because so few have the bottle (especially in the presence of a hostile crowd, it's sad when your team is the team on the receiving end. However, 2 wrongs don't make a right. OK - this is where I admit that I am a ref! *ducks f...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 - New Zealand

Agreed - possibly the most lame version of 'the sheep joke' I have ever read.

The joke actually goes like this:

An Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman walk into a pub...

...to watch Wales play in the World cup Semi-final! :wink:

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 - New Zealand

Ta - but for us Taffs it's Bois ! :wink: As for Sam Warburton, it has to be said that he is a tremendous athlete - if he matches the standards and longevity of his mentor, Martyn Williams, he could become one of the all time greats of the game. I watched him coming out of academy rugby a few years b...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2011 - New Zealand

It has not gone unnoticed! He has also whistled Wales off the park the last couple of times we've had him!

It beggars belief really.

I think a poor England made France look better than they really are and I still expect Wales to win next weekend.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Well, the mood in our house was lightened last night when I ignored my own 'never fart during the first week in Thailand' rule and loudly followed through whilst playing Scrabble with my 9 year old son. He thought it was hilarious! Weather glorious all day today.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Hmm .... That old chestnut! If it rained at 6pm every day I'd agree but it's wiped out the afternoons so no beach = bored kids = glum holiday!

I can bring them over but am flying via UAE - anyone know if this is one of their restricted pharmaceuticals?

Re: Champions League 2010 / 2011

I've never liked Mourinho but I think he does have a point against other teams getting red cards against Barcelona. Ha ha - Yeah - the controversial instances he cited were all against teams managed by Mourinho! There is definitely a common thread there but not the one El Traductor wants the World ...

Re: Champions League 2010 / 2011

Yeah - but I expected nothing else of Mourinho. He has to keep himself in the news - it's what he does.

When asked what he thought of El Traductor's comments, Guardiola simply replied "Nothing." A better man both on and off the pitch.

Re: Champions League 2010 / 2011

Before the four Galacticos matches Mourinho said they had practised playing with 10 players as against Farcelona in any given match one player is most likely to be shown a red card. Can't say he was wrong. Mourinho needs to stop bleating as he is reaping what he has sown - his side had four yellow ...

Re: Gardening

I found that the one thing I couldn't find in Hua Hin was a garden fork but that was before Home-Pro opened. Maybe you can get them in Hua Hin now but I brought mine from the UK and keep it safely locked up! Thoughts on papaya - we had one growing in very meagre soil at the back of the house. It sho...

Re: Mr Plum post on protecting yourself. I used to teach de-escalation/control and restraint techniques The problem with that approach is that by curling up you are presenting the assailant a football. it's a little hard to describe but the better approach is to lie on your side facing the kicks.
