Freedom of speach won't feed my children new [re: b_mardle]  

No offence, chum, but what do you think the chances are Shelle will acquiesce to your request?

A plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel...

We built it, now we're buying it new [re: Strawman]  

In reply to:

The Irish were flocking over to England long before the famine


Before long, we'll own the gaffe. I was just reading in the Financial Times that in the last few years, the Irish have snapped up 25 billion's worth of property in the UK. It seems that we're looking to spend our new found Celtic Tiger wealth so we're buying up your houses, hotels and Premship football clubs.

Play your cards right and I might put in a good word and you might land a job as the cook for a rich Irish family.

I for one am glad that the Industrial Revolution didn't leave the lasting scars on the Irish landscape, the ugly industrial cities, the over population, that they did on the English one.

In reply to:

Do you even realise how popular ice hockey is in switzerland? The best teams (like lugano) gets regular +10.000 attendances for their home games, so i can safely say that hockey is far more popular in switzerland then what 'gaelic' (what the hell is it even, sounds like a poetry-contest at the local bar in a saturday-evening) is in ireland.


Well, like a lot of other things you seem to think you can safely say, you're wrong. If you'd done the most rudimentary research on Gaelic football, you'd see that it regularly attracts crowds of over 80,000, making it by far the most popular spectator sport in Ireland. And a lot more popular than ice hockey is in Switzerland.

Besides, as Shelle has pointed out, ice hockey is a stick sport rather than a ball one. Otherwise I'd have brought up hurling, which also attracts much bigger crowds than Swiss ice hockey.

Given a choice between you disappearing from this thread or Shelle, it should be you, if the criterion is positive contribution. She might not know much about football, but at least she knows the difference between a ball sport and a stick one, and her intelligence and humour shines through all her posts. The fact that she just squarely kicked your arse means she should be welcomed, not banished.

Slan libh,

When you say we'll & we're, what is it that you've personally bought in to?

To my knowledge I've never catered for Irish Jews and I'm not going to start now.

My personal business interests are my personal business.

Or to put it another way, what I might tell a trusted confidante I certainly wouldn't tell a wild cannon like you.

Re: A hot head like you might burn it down new [re: Dara]  

Putting a fair chunk of my TW personae aside, surely the extent of my openness must make me one of the most sincerest & trustworthy people at this site? The very notion that I'd even think about causing detriment to fellow members is a preposterous one.

How about if we met in person, would you tell me then?

I've always assumed that if we ever were to meet in person, we'd get on famously, so the answer is "Yes, probably".

Either that, or we'd scrap. What weight division are you these days?

Re: A hot head like you might burn it down new [re: Dara]  

I've always thought that too, but the thing that stops me from meeting people here is the fact that I might not live up to their expectations - you for example are a super intelligent & politically aware chap that I'm certain requires highly stimulating conversation of persons similarly clued up, whereas I am quite limited on the intellect front, politically unaware & very much the clown.

As to scapping, in all honesty I'd rather, in the first instance, offer to buy the bloke whose foot I've just trodden on & consequently wants a fight, a pint than come to blows.

That said, if the bastard is insistent then I would weigh in to him with my full 14 stone & do my bloody best.

Well. since we're licking each other's rectums with some relish, let me just point out that behind the hilarious clowning it's always been clear to me there lurks a mind of considerable depth and intellectual curiosity. As well as many interesting contradictions.

In reply to:

my full 14 stone


Bloody hell, a full blown cruiserweight. I'm still making the middleweight division, and you probably still possess enough of your youthful speed and athleticism to be a very dangerous operator.

Better stick to the pints, then.

Re: German Punch new [re: Arlequino]  

In reply to:

Klinsmann might feel that Borowski is the better player, but I would still be inclined to go with the more defensively minded player. Borowski is a good option from the bench, as shown to great effect in the quarter finals.


Spot on as always, Arlequino, that is exactly how I think Klinsmann will handle the situation. Kehl in, Borowski later when needed.

If Klinsmann steps down one day would you mind to step in?

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Re: German Punch new [re: EJ]  

Well, here's hoping Germany beat Italy this evening and go on to play France in the Final.

I'd rather an a attack minded team win the tournament than cheats & defence orientated sides.

COME ON ENGLAND!
