go on gooners

I couldn't let today pass without a mention of Arsenal FC's record breaking run of 43 Premiership games without defeat.

Bravo. Up the Gunners (an ting). You never know - keep it up and I might just avoid the wooden spoon in our BBC Fantasy Football League. . .

happy mondays

Hallelujah! Went and got Loaded In The Park with The Happy Mondays on Clapham Common - sun and baggy tunes all round, excellent stuff, even if Shaun did forget the opening line to, er, all the songs.

Bez was, of course, Bez.
And (for once) I remembered the camera so twist your melons here (man).

fourth test

Well that was quite a day...

England v West Indies, Fourth Test at The Oval with Doug and Julian. Arrived full of hope for Freddie to complete his century, then watched with amazement as he and Jones got out early on and Giles took up the mantle, knocking an elegant 52, ably supported by the stoic Hoggard (38) and Harmison (36) bashing sixes all over the shop. 150 added by the "tail" and once Harmi got stuck in to their top order even the flowing batting of Lara with 79 couldn't stop the rot. Windies all out for 152, Harmison 6-46 and a couple more wickets fell in the follow-on before stumps at 6.30pm. And Gayle hit 6 fours off an over which we later learnt was a Test Match first.

Added to which, we then went for a most excellent curry at the Kennington Tandoori :)

faint nic to second slip

Splendid cricket match for Mr Fearon's stag do, in the beautiful setting of Dulwich College.
Fine time had by all, not least Nic who got the MOTM award of a brand new bat with all our ugly mugs stuck on it :)
Pictures soon (ahem, Mr McManus...)

ring ring

Newsflash! Our excellent friends Katie and Paul have got engaged!
Paul (the old romantic) went down on one knee in a gondola (tricky, that) having whisked Katie off to Venice to celebrate their anniversary - bravo, Sir, champagne all round!
