Wow. Such a small post yet so thoroughly unpleasant. Just two words and - bang - I feel like I need a shower.

Well done, Gangster.

Technically, it was 3 words

And now I need the brillo pad ("erm, Brillo is a proper noun ..."). Yeah , see, Ad Hoc, I desisted when I found myself thinking "it's 'It is Porto, actually'" but - fuck me - I should have piled in ... I'm suddenly in the big boys' game here.

Sorry Gangster - no-one takes flippant pedantry as badly as a flipping pedant. It's just that my pedantry is about the football and it's thoroughly verbose. The sarky one-liners I get enough of at home. Oh, you held a cruel mirror up to me sir ...
Last Edit: 18 Mar 2016 13:22 by Alex Anderson. Reason: "I bet EVERY mirror you see is cruel ..." - yes, yes - JUST LEAVE ME ALONE ... to post ranting shite in a public forum and then be surprised when someone responds in a way I don't like ...

And I should have remembered us talking happily about Rotherham and loads of other stuff from earlier posts, Gangster - apologies - Maccavennie's got to me ...

Mine, also, was intended to lighten the mood, not darken it.

It did, ad hoc - it did - any more of this and I'm going to have to start using smileys.

:-)

Now that's dark.

I'm just generally raging because no-one wants to talk about all the European finalists I've not yet seen and how I keep getting oh so comically frustrated in my attempts to score them off a wee list I wrote when I was 12.

I mean - come on - that's gold dust ...

This Saturday's my 40th European Cup/Champions League final. Today's my 17th wedding anniversary. The two aren't as unconnected as you might think - and neither are particularly different from my 38th and 15th :

In the 90's I had a drink in every Glasgow pub within the city boundary. Since then I've had to go into every new poncey pub that opens up just to keep my ticklist up-to-date. They are getting progressively more pretentiously named and even worse 'themed'. I hate every one of them, but I've got to keep doing it. Even at £6 a pint.

I've been at 33 of the listed clubs' home grounds (or former home grounds). You're not going to tempt me into another addiction though. Definitely not. Just as a matter of interest, do EasyJet have direct flights from Glasgow to Belgrade .... ?

Fair play to you Stobart - that's some achievement, especially the (no pub pun intended) top ups. I've been down to the much acclaimed "Finnieston scene" and it was the biggest pile of wank I've experienced in Glasgow for a while (and I've drank in Oran Mor): A guy showing ye to yer fuckin seat - FOR A PINT??!! Then describing all the draught beers available (three in total - all pish) before getting a lassie to bring them to ye separately.

Yer not a gentrified part of Greenwich Village - yer Finnieston. Act like it.

Anyway - more importantly - love your grounds list and the only polite thing to do was work through it:

Seen all your teams live except HSV and Újpesti Dózsa.

Seen them all at their home except for Fiorentina, Chelsea, Leeds, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Notts Forest, Cologne, Espanyol, Fulham, HSV, Rapid Vienna and Újpesti Dózsa.

Saw Euro 96 games at Elland Road and City Ground. Have been inside the old Montjuic Olympic Stadium when it was still Espanyol's home, poked my head in Rapid's Gerhard Hanappi and couldn't get in but walked ALL THE WAY ROUND Cologne's Mungesdorfer and Craven Cottage.

Okay - okay - you can't walk all the way round Craven Cottage (didn't swim it either) and I'm also cheating with Milan and Inter: Only been to the San Siro once and it was for the Milan derby - Inter were the away side so I haven't seen them at home but I have seen them playing in their home. Conversely, when I saw Fortuna Dusseldorf they were in the third division (old Regionaliga Nord) and playing at their smaller Paul Janes venue: So I've only seen them at one of their homes.

Tellin ye - this anal-retention, it's a complicated life.

Belgrade? Let it come to you, mate - let it come to you ... and then take it for a pint. In the city centre.

I've been shown to my seat a few times right enough - even in shiteholes. Usually happens when I can't walk in a straight line.

It was the Montjuic I was in too. First and only time I've passed an entire circus on my way to the ground - jugglers, clowns, fire-eaters, monkeys. You don't get that on the way to Cliftonhill. Nah, scrub that.

My favourite grounds are those that have hardly had a lick of paint, far less a rebuilt, since the war. Csepel in Budapest for instance was much more enjoyable than Ujpest Dosza. The £4 hospitality tent might have helped me arrive at that decision.

Next stop is Lithuania in October. Mon the Stumbras.

*Laughs out loud*

Aye, well Ayr United brought a big support when I saw them in Coatbridge last season so ...

Lithuania? Like it, Stobart. Nice. Enjoy sir - and may you require much assistance to the apres-gemme seating areas ...

Just looked at your GOT and NOT GOT lists again Alex. So are you counting teams you've only seen away from home as well as those you've visited ? In that case I need to revise my list. I've seen quite a few in European competitions and friendlies in Scotland, and I've seen Anderlecht at Zulte Waregem, and Arsenal away to Leeds. Must be more, I'll have a look.
