No 0 v 0 draws with us!
Fresh from the awful match that saw England exit the European Championship, we held our very own school tournament. Four foreigners [L to R: Jan, me, Robert, Andrew] took on five Chinese teachers in a manic five-a-side football, until we could barely move. Our school had a similar match four years ago, which led to me breaking my foot! And at a later school volleyball match, my boss's wife broke her hip! So we were lucky to leave today with just aching limbs and various bruises. The foreigners were winning 9 v 1 when we decided it might be time to mix up the teams a little. After 1½ hours we hobbled off to share a nice banquet. Now if only I had a shower at home!

9 – 1 ? why is Didier Drogba going there when they could be using you ? or are you planning to offer your services to the England side. I watched the match and even with your gout you could have done better

You should have had me there. You know how good I am at football. That is the game where they have a bat & three sticks stuck in the ground isnt it!!
