  1. So, just a normal Fam day then.
  2. Careful. You are starting to sound like @Redwhitepurple with his comments about Fam scoring against Swaziland . My nan could of scored a hat trick against them. I wonder if he is as dirty a player for his country as he is for his club?
  3. Thanks for your continued efforts to help, but I was able to read the report without any problem. It was the @Rudolf Hucker aspect that interested me, '@01;46 I'm saying nothing !' - which, for me, is unavailable to view on the BBC site. Not to worry, though - the proper season starts again in a few days.
  4. I know, and it's on BBC, which, due to 'rights issues' is currently unavailable to me - I live in France. It may be available on the official BCFC site later on in the week.
  5. Unfortunately, due to 'rights issues', I have been unable to see this. Is it worth trying again later in the week or just a play on words or something?
  6. Indeed, and as I said above (#12): 'Chelsea may well have got a bargain (for Women's football), but, without wishing to denigrate SK or women's football in general, there is a long way to go before the latter starts to compare with men's football - just enjoy it for what it is without making fanciful comparisons.'
  7. Indeed, I know it very well: Deutsches Eck - and the statue of Kaiser Wilhelm I is now back.
  8. I have heard and read about this Australian footballer; obviously an extremely talented young lady, and I just love the name given to their National Team - Matildas, although (and I am not being sexist or patronising) I think I would have chosen Koalas. I have also seen some clips of her playing and, as I say above, she is clearly a very good player. Let's not get carried away, though: I don't envisage Kalas, Williams or Baker (or Moore) losing too much sleep about having to defend against her. Chelsea may well have got a bargain (for Women's football), but, without wishing to denigrate SK or women's football in general, there is a long way to go before the latter starts to compare with men's football - just enjoy it for what it is without making fanciful comparisons.
  9. Sorry to hear that @cidered abroad. I knew you were getting on a bit (mid-70s?), but even so. I am glad to see they seem to have good WIFI up there, though.
  10. Hmmm. Certainly, Normandy and, for me, Brittany, would be appealing for long stays and even retirement, but I can assure you there are drawbacks. I may be wrong, but one area that seems to be overlooked by British tourists rushing to the southern French beaches and Spain is Auvergne - this region is certainly idyllic: still rural, and wonderful for country walks and rustic meals.
  11. Just over 4 times bigger than England, although more than twice the size of the UK. The populations (UK and France) are similar, but mainland France (66M) has only 10M more inhabitants than England. A major difference, though, is that the French population is heavily concentrated in Paris and its banlieus (suburbs) and just a few major towns (Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse etc.), all of which have populations of less than 1M, compared to our major cities such as Manchester and Birmingham, both of which have populations in excess of 1M, with other large cities such as Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool almost as densely populated. As you say, though, once you leave the main towns in France, you can drive for miles with just fields and small villages (and their homely restaurants).
  12. I live on the outskirts of Paris and enjoy an open, woodburning fire - in fact, I am just about to light it. Whilst I have fields to the back of my house, I am conscious of the smell of smoke, especially in heavy, damp conditions. Are your figures accurate, though?
