This ghostwriter character, why do you even bother replying?
From what I can see, you will make a reasoned argument taking facts and adding your personal opinion and interpretation with no obvious agenda and she then replies along the lines of you're a poo-poo head. You're a foreigner, usually adding some badly concealed racist agenda, adding extreme views. She makes things very personal like a schoolyard child. If she is getting a hard time, she either changes her name to back herself up or makes a rally cry for her fellow Croats to get behind her (few do). She seems unable to get her points across on what most of us would consider a reasonable level of communication
If this was the real world, I'm sure you wouldn't converse with her, so why do you here? Are you considering a future career as a councillor?
David, I thought we weren't supposed to be on speaking terms, according to the "Ghost" ;D
I know that it is pointless trying to present a rational argument or have a discussion, but the lies it was peddling about robbing the poor unfortunates, scamming, and especially that she had proof of it all (that it claims it presented, still haven't found it though) was a bit too nasty to let lie.
But you're completely right, always liked Boro since even before the days of Bernie and Chris, and of course my namesake and Curtis Fleming (both of whom are with Shels now!).
Oh, it will be interesting if the host person trumps up the fare to visit Knin (it claimed it'd drop by the office one day to talk Croatian with me, which is cool, I like the practice!).
I actually Know Bernie the (ahem) Irishman very well. A great bloke and he is tea total so he is the perfect free taxi. I have played with him in our 5 a side league and as recently as last year he scored 18 goals in a 30 min game. The wolfman is a legend.
Curtis Fleming has a shoe store selling fancy trainers near Middlesbrough now, and Chris, I presume Chris Morris? As a sad indictment of the mentality of the north east football fan, he has almost legendary status for nearly crucifying Keith Gillespie in a league cup game and some how only be awarded a yellow card.
As an even sadder indictment of the north east football fan, the happiest day of my life is when we won the league cup in Cardiff, I suppose the wedding comes second.
There is another questionable Irishman ready to turn to the emerald isle Frank O’Quedrue, if he doesn’t make the French squad anytime soon he is going to use his Irish grandma and play or you boys, he is an excellent player but he doesn’t get noticed because he plays for the boro.
Why would be not be on speaking terms btw? Do you watch Croatian football? I have been to watch Dinamo a few times, but I only have so much love to give and I find it impossible to care about any team except boro.
Chris Morris, yes, had an awful time with Irish football fans after it came out he had an affair with a good time girl in Dublin. It began after a game when the boys were out in a club called, appropriately, "Rumours", the next home game Ireland had was in he RDS against Wales, I stood on the terrace, which ran the length of the pitch, and as he ran by the wags started shouting "Hey Chris, we're been hearing rumours about ya!"
Chris was a tough defender, but it was held in Ireland that he couldn't cross his legs. The beautiful jinking runs he made to the endline, resulted in "passes" that were more at home in Croke Park or Ulster football.
I follow local teams here, been to lots of Hajduk games, always freebies which is nice, but find the standard pretty average. I used to live in Germany and followed Frankfurt (Eintracht) fanatically and still do. I only ever followed one team in Ireland, Dundalk, but GAA was our staple and while I always admired, and went to games, West Ham, I preferred to follow the local league, unlike the "loyal" followers who troop over each weekend.
I can't match the 'Boro record (1000 games) I've been to over 50 of Eintracht's and a couple hundred Dundalk ones, but, thanks to my Dad and Uncle's thousands of GAA games of all codes, still listen religiously online each weekend!
Oh, I'll go to the Hajduk game tomorrow night with a buddy who's reporting on it, and my colleague, who's from Vinkovci has made me swear to support his guys.
I have tried to support Dinamo, Ijt can't do it, do you care if hajduk win or lose?
My favourite football moment in Croatia was when England played Croatia at the world cup and I was in a bar in Zagreb, when Croatia scored the whole bar started having a go at me and mocking me.....as you know that didn't last long ;D
