Hi Chris, yes it was me you spoke to around 5 years ago, a lot going on in my life at that point but everything's settled down to a manageable pace now! Am looking forward to trading parts/knowledge/insults/anything with all of you (although the last one will probably be mostly reserved for wedgy as I know he likes a bit of banter!)!!!

They only do because NZ won.. Thats all it is. The fact I am german and my country has a past does not justify their insults. It's ok though, we all love abit of Sheep. Beached as bro!

As a second thought however... would you have ever known that a Ball in reality is ROUND and not shaped like an egg if it wasn't for us Europeans?


Sure you guys need 3 goals, silly scoring rules, a pretty dance and no goal keeper to keep the NRL as imaginative and exciting as a MC Donalds happy meal on a Monday afternoon..

Don't get me started about AFL lol.. ST Kilda vs Geelong.. Same shit every year, yet all the players live in st kilda. ROFL

(Ohh i am gonna get it for this comment, haha Give it to me!)

Hmmm. Curiously enough, you're addressing a non-football (soccer) fan here, I'm perfectly happy with the egg-shaped ball myself!!
It's a pretty good stance really; none of the stress associated with whether or not England are going to win the World Cup (and I think we all know the answer to that one seeing as our team is populated with over-paid, prissy, primadonna girls), coupled with being able to take advantage of all the cheap beer offers in the supermarkets!!
Bonus!!

Anyway, back to Piazzaland . . . . !!! For me it's FAR more interesting!!!!

Cheers guys :D

Careful now, before you enter a battle of wits with me make sure you have some ammunition. You might need an army to help you and you could be in trouble if the only armies you have are the ones up your sleevies.

I'm glad Iptoc are here, it is a long time since we hassled an englander (eh Chris?) In the past most have whimpered off into a corner to sulk but I suspect Clive is made of sterner stuff and will give as good as he gets.

I am just happy that we also now have the opportunity to focus our German Siege to the Pommies for a change.. Matter of fact, once my English writing improves (Give it another 10 years!!!), I would like to join the team where I am not a single target anymore and stand on the other side of the fence.

Current Forum Score: GER(1)OZ(2)NZ(450) unfair! :D

Don't fret Chris, I have an afinity for Germans, I worked with one for many years, I absolutely love Bavaria, favourite city is Nuremberg (Nurnberg if you prefer) Favourite tourist spot is Rothenburg ob der Tauber. best place for a day out is the Nurburgring. Worst feature? Hire car company that wouldn't let me take it on the Nurburgring.

Biggest blast? seeing how fast the hire car would go on the M9 to Munchen

Coolest day out was a quite beer in the market at Augsberg.

So chalk it up as Germany 2 and if my wife had her way we would be living there.

biggest gobsmack was the black audi that passed us on the Autobahn like we were going backwards, I was knocking on 130km/hr when he blasted past me TOWING A HUGE CARAVAN. The man had big "Kugeln". Non germans may need to look this up!

Dare I say I'm feeling TRIUMPHant?
(As if the southerners weren't bad enough, the northerners used an Aussie to lead them in some recent film... [Ok - he's a septic - unlike Phar Lap, Split Enz, Russel "the phone" Crowe, Sam O'Neil, the Meteors et al who are all tru-blue Aussies! If only we could get Chris Mathews (and the rest of the Headless Chickens) to Go West and become as Aussie as the aforementioned!])

I too miss Ku-dam and the rest of the donuts, though they have since vandalised my favourite wall (NOT! And yay!). I miss my Spliff even without Nina (Hagen).

Alas those round balls, when it stops being as blatantly rigged, I may watch again. (Though from what I understand, this time the Aussies did lose, or not win.) But money is everything (unless you enjoy a good car or mc).


And as Isuzu as I am, I hope "holden" is reading this so he understands how right he was about this site - at least literally (I'm not sure about the intent, but maybe he'll understand or intent. And reality).

And speaking of reality (as if I have any idea!) - whatchit Wedgy - I am now a mod (or whatever) and I can change your uppercase W to lower case any time I want (in this thread anyhow).

Alcohol. It really exposes the aggression in me.
(Sorry!)

Wow! I wasn't expecting our arrival in Antipodean Isuzuland to be met with such impressive displays of xenophobia, alcoholism and scatalogical intent - awesome!!

It's obviously quite true what English people say about Australians (mostly having formed opinions based upon old transportation laws and Kevin "Bloody" Wilson admittedly) - I now feel compelled to go to my nearest "Walkabout" Australian theme bar and join in!!!!

:D
