If it's the football supporters' club, I might well join myself!Please advance membership forms for husband and 2 kids too.
PS. Thinking of renaming myself L'ecossaise, although the only problem with that is that....

a. I haven't yet mastered french accents on WORD.
b. Isn't it just a teeny wee bit divisive?

SHA L'ECOSSAISE ( Don't need them with capitals-ha!)

So Messi wins again! Personally I don't think he deserves it this year. What I didn't know is that the competition for Ballon d'Or is organised by the French!!!!!! I'm sure  that Messi being at PSG has nothing to do with him winning though!

In English, Coleman Ba**s?

Every Christmas while we lived in England together, my wife would include that year's particular edition in my hoard of presents.  We would always make a start of reading them out aloud whilst in bed on Christmas morning. A side splitting way to commence a mediocre day. Here are some samples:

.

Harry Redknapp –

“Samassi Abou don’t speak the English too good.”

“Dani is so good-looking I don’t know whether to play him or f*** him!”

Ruud Gullit –

“We must have had 99 per cent of the game. It was the other three per cent that cost us the match.”

Sir Bobby Robson –

“Look at those olive trees – they’re two hundred years old —from before the time of Christ.”

“Home advantage gives you an advantage.”

“The first 90 minutes are the most important”

Steve Lomas –

“Germany are a very difficult team to play — they had 11 internationals out there today.”

Paul Gascoigne –

“I never predict anything and I never will.”

Glenn Hoddle –

“When a player gets to 30, so does his body.”

David O’Leary –

“I was a young lad when I was growing up.”

Gerry Francis –

“What I said to them at half-time would be unprintable on the radio.”

Wayne Bridge (after winning the Carling Cup final 2007) –

“The important thing was we got the three points.”

Graham Taylor –

“Very few of us have any idea of what life is like living in a goldfish bowl, except, of course, for those of us who are goldfish.”

Bobby Robson (again) –

“Everyone’s got tough games coming up. Manchester United have got Arsenal, Arsenal have got Manchester United and Leeds have got Leeds.”

Kevin Keegan –

“I came to Nantes two years ago and it’s much the same today, except that it’s totally different”

“The 33 or 34-year-olds will be 36 or 37 by the time the next World Cup comes around, if they’re not careful.”

Ian Wright –

“Without being too harsh on David he cost us the match”

Alvin Martin –

“The new season will be all about scoring more goals than the opposition”

Barry Venison –

“I always used to put my right boot on first, and then obviously my right sock”

Murdo MacLeod –

“That was only a yard away from being an inch-perfect pass”

Bryan Robson –

“If we played like that every week then we wouldn’t be so inconsistent”

Andy Gray –

“Anyone who takes drugs should be hammered”

 

Finally, two classics from the downright immature

George Hamilton-

“He’s pulling him off. The Spanish manager is pulling his Captain off!”

to the  sadly apocryphal

Anon

“The bowler’s Holding, the batsman’s Willey”

You mean in the same way as car Grand Prix races perhaps?

In 1906 the race was, for the 1st time, referred to as 'Grand Prix of the Automobile Club of France' or 'Grand Prix of France'  in honour of the host organisers and the host region. This was the 1st time in history that a race would receive that name and has continued to be used in several sports around the world.

In answer to your question, yes that is what I mean.

Returning to a soccer note. Last night,  Latvia Women 0 - England Women 20 

Which is what I said to my wife yesterday after hearing the morning news, followed by  the result of  the Scotland Spain match, 0-8.

I quickly left the room as my wife is a Scot 😞
