Bob that was nothing for you.

 

Together with my good lady, you were the only speactators watching the supporters team in Paris in '82, when despite meticulous planning we set off 2 players short following their (cough) arrest an hour before departure.

 

I'm sure you resisted offers to play in that tournament and god knows we were short following the 2 "detainments" but your sterling backing of the team from the stands helped us reach the final against our friends from Frankfurt who co-incidently shared the camp site with us.

 

So 1 weekend, 1,000 miles to watch a bunch of your mates representing the tics in a european tournament. Now thats going a long way.

 

 

Oh and that p*ss up with the Gemans on the camp site after the final was something else. I still don't know how I drove home the following day. :grin:

 

Cheers,

Mine's a pathetic 750 mile round trip to Bristol Rovers last season. Following lorries as their lights were all I could see. Back by five. Up and in work by seven thirty. All for a one nil defeat. Great.

hang on 1min , i remember you saying you need to ask your mum if its okay to go with someone to an away match , now you say you misssed your sons birth ?????( this is for wenks)

 

You would have though such a commited fan would have been at Hartlepool wouldn't you.

 

*Thanking my lucky stars no poor soul has Wenks for a dad yet*

 

In my opinion Wenks is too stupid, too great an idiot, to be genuine. I think he's a wind up....a good one at that who has got to me and plenty others.

 

 

Note for Bob: if you click on fast reply at the bottom you wont have to quote the previous poster. Or you can just delete the 'quote text' that appears. Hope this isn't patronising :lol: Just that you reply to ladylover then specify your post as being to Wanks.
