I'm forever blowing bubbles



Only, they've all burst. The title of this post isn't an obscure reference to Michael Jackson, but the title of the anthem of West Ham United Football Club, my local team. After many recent years in the doldrums, West Ham this year are back in the Premiership and got to the final of the FA Cup against Liverpool, played in Cardiff Millenium Stadium today. We came second. I have to say, though, it was a great game, score was 3-3 through extra time and the match was decided on penalties. Never mind, another time. This is their ground, I'll leave it till later to fill in some trivia bits.

From all accounts I've read it was a fantastic game. Sadly, I was working a 12 when the game was on for me. Thanks for knocking Sp*ds down to 5th.

Oh, I am sorry mate. Watched the game with my mate who is a big West Ham supporter. Well.. It was a great final, hard tough luck.

Went to Upton Park last year btw with my mate. I am a Plymouth supporter. West Ham won 5-0 but atleast I got a few good shots of the stadium =)

Thanks for the kind words folks, it was that kind of game it was a shame anyone had to win. Ah well.

BW - this is the WELSH thousand-year span, double "LL"s are obligatory but no others. It was late. I was tired and emotional and my keyboard sitcks ;-)
