This time I have managed to post this instead of saving it…, so to carry on,
Saturday 24th saw us at the bike show at the NEC..brilliant if you are interested in motorcycles or indeed have got one one.. bike that is…
We spent all day walking round, the old growler got me my xmas present , a pair of Alpinestars smx plus racing boots, very expensive & a fuck off pair of boots.
My paws will fit in here great, very comfortable!
plus a Haynes workshop manual for my bike.
Its a bit sad I know, & I know what I’m going to be getting, hopefully there will be a little suprise as well
Its my birthday on 20th, which the more observant of you will realise is only 5 days before xmas.. what a bummer….all my birthday presents come wrapped in xmas paper, & I have to wait for ages after christmas for me birthday, then 5 days later its christmas again!
Could be worse though, my grans birthday was 24th December.. WOW!
We also met Jamie Whitham,
ex racer, commentater, part time musician & all round top bloke, who used to have Hodgkins Lymphoma, which he managed to beat, a true fighter, and a great rider.
We also met John Reynolds another ex racer, and also top geezer, who is working for suzuki now.
I had my Aria helmet serviced. courtesy of the Arai Race service team,
( for free ) brilliant service.. fuck off expensive to start, but you cant beat the customer service after you have lashed out all those spondos.
We had a look at a load of bikes,
some good, some shite,
A very old Rudge
Mike Hailwoods Honda
Mick Grants Kawasaki
loads of accessories and bits for bikes,and also some very very tasty looking chicks,
Birds & bikes. just seems right somehow
but the day went too quickly and we were absolutely fucked,and then we got back home to find out that ……
the Villa had beaten Middlesborough 3-0.. at Boro!
I didn’t expect that.. 2 away wins on the trot..Blackburn at Blackburn next, on Wednesday.. no way are we going to win that one…
4-0 to the Villa!
What the cock is going on?
6th in the table, 6 points off the top…. fetch me a hanky, my nose has started bleeding!
However, a reality check ( football wise ) was just around the corner, in the form of ….
sorry wrong pic..
who ARE top of the league ( and sorry Dave the fireman ) are probably going to WIN the league, so expectations of a 5th straight win were ( correctly as it happens ) consigned to the bin.
And it came to pass , that was exactly what happened, but not quite according to script with Villa taking an early lead, then taking a battering and ending up 2 -1 down at the end of the first half.
Sir Martin must have given them the speech of all speeches, because we came out 2nd half and gave them what for….
It ended up with Arsenal hanging on at the end… what a brilliant game, even though we had lost, the team were applauded off the field, cheered and feted as heroes…. DID we win???
No , we didn’t , but the effort the team put in, the way we played & matched Arsenal was brilliant….
Proud History, Bright Future
seems to say it all at the moment really.
7th now, but only just, Portsmouth nicking 6th on goal difference..and who have we got next….yup the aforementioned Pompey at Villa Park….
Exciting times ahead methinks
One last thing… When someone gets put in prison for letting a child name a teddy bear,
an innocent bear earlier today
and certain sections of the indigenous population are calling for her execution…..
what the fuck is this world coming to??
Free Gillian Gibbons now!
This woman is apparently a dangerous criminal
who deserves to be executed for henious crimes
too sensitive to mention!
Have a good week peeps, well done if you got this far, I might not do this often, but when I do…….
See you soon!
I Can’t believe it!
Fucking FA cup draw…
Man U again
every fucking season, how many more times…..that means no Wembley for us AGAIN this season…at least we’re at home, so if won’t be too far to travel home afterwards
