Went shopping and on the way out saw a Royal blue Skoda with Everton stuff in the window .So we sat and waited to meet the driver ,the wife asked me how long will we wait and I replied "well a match is 1 1/2 hrs " It was a local lad who has been a blue for 30 years , hard to explain but it was like meeting an unknown member of the family / long lost cousin .Chuffed to bits .

One of my brothers in Law (a red.) bumped into Joe Royle on Thursday in a car park in Ormskirk. He said to him, "now there's a player", Joe smiled, said "thanks", and "there's an hour left on this ticket if you want it"? Red or Blue, we all hate rip off parking charges. :)

I remember when in Kamuzu International Airport, LLW, Malawi, I noticed a blue passport cover in the hands of a fellow passenger. Started whistling Z-Cars and after only two bars what do you know? It took us only a couple of seconds to start downing those Carlsberg Specials in the airport's only restaurant. Both of us were back in those days missing Gravesen from the midfield...
Well there may be no score, but there's certainly no lack of excitement here. As you can see, Nietzsche has just been booked for arguing with the referee. He accused Confucius of having no free will, and Confucius he say, "Name go in book". And this is Nietzsche's third booking in four games.

I had been whistling Z cars waiting for him for exactly the same reason ,the best bit in between exchanging emails was when he called Unsi -rhino ,it gave me goosebumps .I have had a smile on my face for hours now ,Here in Finland most are Utd or Liverpool fans it is rare to find a blue .

Arvaas muuten mitä.... On siellä muutama Spurs ja Arsenal-kannattajakin. Plus sitten meikäläisiä.

Anyways, that wasn't me Skoda. And I'm located in Eritrea.

If be careful, have you ever seen what happens when Americans use little American phrases on here?, never mind full on Finnish. ;)

No idea what that meant but gave it a like just in case.
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

I can’t remember whose sig it was, or whether it was even on here, that mentioned about the difference between seeing a red in one of their shirts compared to a fellow blue in one of ours (I can’t recall the actual phrase, but it rings true).
