Just reading that the production of the 'yellow peril' is leaving the factory of our country cousins. Its the mustard that's on the shelf in the "International/British foods' section at my local supermarket and i've never never allowed that in my home. Also surfaces in British style Pubs. So if it moves away/abroad should i allow entry?
Well, couldn't believe my eyes when i was just checking if any soccer games are being screened on a Thursday and Lo and Behold Billericays games on! Then i noticed its the only match in the world today! But i'll watch it.
Atlanta in their first MLS season have just had over 70,000 inside the stadium for the game against Orlando City. Ended 3-3 and i watched it in my local 'sports bar' with no volume and probably the only person remotely interested even though i'm close to Orlando! Looked like an end to end open game and Dom Dwyer who started out 'up' the road scored two great headed goals for Orlando and he's already gained 'US citizenship! Thats all you need to do......score!!
I'll be at the brand new sold out Orlando City Stadium Sunday afternoon for the season opener against New York City and so looking forward to being there. Its about 10 years since an English guy Phil Rawlins brought the franchise from Texas to Florida with ex Stoke and Everton player Adrian Heath as the coach. I started watching them play at the Disney Sports complex in front of a few thousand to growing into a MLS team 3 years ago at the 60,000 Citrus Bowl. Now its a new purpose built soccer stadium with a 25,000 sold out season! Heath moved on last year to a new franchise and Rawlins "upstairs" with a young Brazilian as the major owner. Kaka the captain is still enjoying life here in Florida and appears passionate about the Club. Two new signings that have played Premier/Championship level so i'm hoping Orlando at least make the Play offs this year. Live on ESPN nationwide here and guess its on the UK channels if anyone's interested!
Just home from the Orlando City must win for the play offs game against Montreal. Normally games do not start/clash with Sunday mid day NFL games . Though they lost i managed to pick up $20ish dollar tickets purchased outside. 20,500 plus inside and in my opinion fans stayed/cheered for the "lions" till the end. No hoofball just neat passing without the moaning and groaning, pleasant and enjoyable.
