He didn't become as good as I thought he would. When he scored that goal when he started in his own half against Sheff United when he was 17 I thought he would go on to be nailed on England centre forward. few years ago now but he didn't develop as much as he looked like he would. Not too late though I suppose.
I am going out beginning of March for the Friday night game against Karlsruher SC. what's the best bit of the ground to get a ticket? How much are they?
I can't read German so the website is all a bit of a mystery. I went out for the friendly and a mate and I fancied going to the Esprit for a game. Got the flights £9.99 each way and a hotel for £20 a night. It's so cheap to do it''s madness i tells ya.
For those of you interested I thought I would share my football experience from last weekend. I went to watch a SIL game last weekend between Fram and IVR. My lad was playing.
It was really enjoyable afternoon. Chucking it down with rain. Fram have a really good set up. Nice pitch, stand with seating, coffee bar with bacon rolls. Even had a programme for the game. And a decent bar for a post match pint and free to get in.
I was possibly the only IVR supporter in a crown of around 100. I was suprised at the atmosphere, very lively. The Fram supporters giving the ref and IVR players a hard time (all in good fun). I even got a hard time for shouting 'ref' when an IVR player was fouled.
Half time was 0-0, which for IVR was something of a result. Second half the floodlights come on. Yellow and red cards, end to end stuff. It was like being at a football league game.
IVR eventually went down 3-0 but a really spirited performance. Lost a whole team week before start of season and are having to rebuild, so that was actually a decent scoreline. Was 0-0 until about 75 mins.
I enjoyed that as much as I have a town game this season, perhaps a little bit more to be honest. Until this year I have never watched a SIL game but i have to say I really enjoy the experience. Friendly banter between opposition supporters and always a warm welcome. I suppose it helps having my son play so you do want one of the teams to win.
