    Willian had a scoring chance and it was outside the area. Unlikely to have dived.

    There is no use hiding.
    The absence of Eden looms heavy.
    Bats should have scored twice in the first half but chances are there to be missed and it was n't like that with Eden around, even with the poor strikers after Diego.

    Ivica Surjak the great Croatian midfielder.
    Tipped by tabloids for AEK Athens in January 1983.
    Did n't happen.
    The tabloid's excuse was "drama at the border as Surjak forgets passport".

    Lost 4-0 to Bulgaria, 4-0 to Argentina, 2-0 to Nigeria.
    There were some expectations because in the preliminaries we finished ahead of Russia.
    It was reported he returned weeks later, with a false beard.
    Died in 2012 but his name has become associated with dismal football performances.

    2004 was different. Under the leadership of German Otto Rehhagel and with very good players.
    A measure of how good Greece was in 2004 is I think that two of the best ever Greek players, Nikolaidis and Tsiartas, who were instrumental in the preliminaries stopped playing just before Portugal - because they were getting old. They were fielded as reserves in Portugal. But the rest were up to the task.
    Unfortunately from August 2004 (!) and onwards it's decline again. Under Ranieri we lost to Hebrides-Orkneys what was that team ?

    I 'm sure it was 1-0 the replay to Arsenal.

    2-2 for the FA cup. I watched that one from Matthew Harding. Arsenal equalized with a fluke scored by Charlie George.
    In the replay I was shut out at Highbury - Queued for half an hour then shut out. We lost 1-0.
    Turned back to leave the ground then found myself in the middle of a mounted police charge - against touts !

    Yew Wilkins was n't.
    But during Mexico Ossie had a broken leg. Did n't he ?

    Nice win away.
    But we did n't play well today either.
    It was Arsenal who were not very brilliant. They conceded a lot of ground and it looked like a question of time before we scored goals.
    Luck played a role, as usual. A fluke 2-0 might have sealed it but it did n't happen.
    We lack in creativity and we need some strong additions

    Well count me in to, not just Vesper and Atomiswave.
    But regarding the Trump character he's a relatively new face in town. In my time the arch-villain in America was tricky the Dicky.
    Regarding the British connection the truth is we European peoples have been going out of the way to avoid offfending the Tories. If only because the Tories were the no one target of the Kremlin and the Soviet spies.
    So we were going out of our way to defend the British Tory establishment for their various blinders.
    But now what ? When Bojo is a certified nincompoop, what other name are we going to use ? Are we resort to science fiction, like Jules Vern, to describe Bojo ? He's a nincompoop, period.

    TACTICAL VOTING - CRAZY FIND
    I went to the analytical results.
    There are 650 seats and I could n't look into all of them but I looked into 64 cases, the letters V, W and Y.
    I concentrated on seats won by the CONS that could have changed hands with tactical voting. The LAB-LIB wins and the easy Tory wins did not matter to me.
    Out of the 64 I found 15 !
    That makes what over the lot of 650 seats ?
    150 seats maybe ?
    Thereabouts !
    Now in 4 cases out of the 15, the Libs were denied because Labour did n't help or Labour and the Greens did n't help.
    In the remaining 9 cases Labour was denied through the inaction of the Liberal voters, Greens, Plaid Cymru voters.
    So YOU gave it to Boris - and a hey and a ho !
    So all the talk about tactical voting affected only me, my friends Andy and Deborrah from Cardiff and another bloke I met in a pub - Tim, Teddy what was his name ?
    Brill !
    What can I say ?
    Lots of medicines are needed.

    It's a mixed bag.
    They actually did support some junta governments when there was no communist danger to justify it.
    But those who were responsible for that are exactly the same ones who support brexit now.

    Did n't see the match - only the fluke goal in a small vid.
    Some things must change in the month of Jan me thinks. We cannot possibly fail to stay in the top four.

    I think Azpi was one of the greats but he is past it.
    Zouma about whom I was not convinced even before his injury three years ago, is I 'm afraid not Chelsea material.
    We are like a half-built house.
