Webby,

Depends on how early you consider insomniacs are up and about. I am up and about around 6am, but then am usually in bed by 10pm. (Unless there's summat good on't telly. Which ain't often.) Although I forced myself to watch Villa last night, just so I could shout at the box and say, 'Please go away Big 'Eck! (Or words to that effect.) :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
I wouldn't pay him in bus tokens.

Latest:
My wish is granted. He's been sacked. I wonder who Lerner will employ in his place? It'll have to be a conjurer who can work miracles with budget has-beens mind! I am expecting Owen to come knocking on the gates this close-season. :roll:

He of Liverpool, New-Castle and Man-Yuck! I didn't know there was any other sort of Owen! :lol:

I agree with your remarks about the current Villa too, and I supported them for 60 years plus. :roll:

Been going down the villa since I was 4 (on the old witton end, just in front of the bovril kiosk). That was in the old third division. Dad's been going down since just after WWII. Can't remember a more depressing time to follow them, even under Billy McNeill.

So you will be pleased about the news on Dickie Bird then Roy?
Pukka bloke is Dickie. Would've been nicer still if it had been Sir Dickie. Reckon he's done enough! :D

It was just terracing when your Dad went down Mike. If you wanted Bovril you took it in a flask! You were allowed to in those days.
Any way to get back on topic,
When I can't sleep I just repeat to myself,

'The... the... the... th.. t...Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! And it's breakfast time!

:D

Yep! He enlivened umpiring that's for sure.

Roy.
I'm not a massive cricket fanatic Roy, but I can enjoy a game. One thing I did like was being paid to spend a day in the sunshine, on duty at Edgbaston, at Test Time. And there's just something magical about lazy, Summer days at an inter-Village match; followed by crumpets and cream-cakes for tea! :D :wink:

It is to me Roy. The last time I played, I was last man in. I waited all afternoon of course, went in, hit a soaring six...








And got caught on the boundary! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I swear the guy was out of bounds, but... Ah well... Memories! :D

Somebody once suggested along the lines that if you don't understand cricket you don't understand the English John.

Roy.

I didn't say I don't understand the game Roy; although, I am a bit rusty on some of the Laws of the Game.
And does anybody fully understand the English? Even ourselfves at times. :mrgreen:

Take care m'man.
:D
