  1. Cheers mate - no probs - I'll be doing the baths in the afternoon - into the beers after that - staying in the Easyjet Hotel near the centre . Ive been to Budapest before on way to Croatia match - cant remmebr any of the pubs except the Scottish one.
  2. They knocked Rob Roy out last year when we were top of the Super League at the time.
  3. Hes always been Big Sam . I used to go and watch Blackpool when he was in charge ..arrogant twat - cost us promotion with his safety first tactics. Never liked him -even more so when he was West Ham manager I fooking hate them.
  4. Meeting my fellow ice cream TA pals in Bratislava , but travelling Billy Nomates from Manchester to Budapest on the Sunday morning. Train on Monday. Got to do the Szecheny baths in the afternoon - just fantastic. Probs have a wee stroll round at night including the Scottish bar -been there before.
  5. Just back up in Scotland for a few days- played Westerwood in Cumbernauld on Sunday night - last played it over 15 years ago - remembered it as being pretty decent years ago - but seems to have gone downhill quite a bit now - layout totally changed -spent more time walking between holes than actually playing them . Back nine way superior to front nine. Okay for a tenner though. Played three excellent courses in Lincolnshire last weekend - Boston West , Skegness North Shore (one of my all time favourites - loved it) and Sandilands near Mablethorpe. Playing as many courses as I can in the North East of England while I'm living in Newcastle -favourite so far Brancepeth Castle near Durham - lots of really good courses at cheap prices on the website teeofftimes.
  6. I watch lots of rugby league , but that game on Saturday was phenomal - what a game, occasion and a rarity with great coverage the BBC. Mark Chapman decent presenter and the pundits all seem to be decent knowledgeable blokes. Danny Houghton making 52 tackles including the one at the end to prevent an almost certain Warrington win - will be shown for years to come.
  7. Life of Brian ..always look on the bright side of life .
  8. Thursday 1st - Newcastle to Rome - train to Naples - overnight ferry Naples-Palermo. Friday 2nd - Train across Sicily - Palermo to Catania - night in Catania. Sat 3rd - Fly Catania to Malta. 3 days in Malta. Tues 6th - Malta -Rome for a couple of days. Thurs 8th - Rome-Copenhagen-Newcastle with SAS - only got half an hour at Copenhagen between flights.
  9. It doesnt get any better than Clare Balding waxing lyrical about Charlotte Dujardin on the wonderful Vallegro in the dressage. I'm losing the fooking will to live waiitng oon the track cycling.
  10. With the honourable exceptions for Mark Chapman (excellent presenter) , Chris Boardman (excellent summariser) and Andrew Cotter (excellent commentator) , the BBC have employed their usual gang of pundits and presenters with no personality or uttering inane drivel or unheard of bints screeching away (woman covering the rugby sevens last night for 5 live was insufferable, combined with the the dreadful gloating and triumphalism when "Team GB" win - swimming has been exxcellent to watch but ffs Helen Skelton and Rebecca Adlington are fooking dreadful. Start of athletics today and even worse with Gabby Logan, Denise Lewis and Colin Jackson - my . And thats before Paula Radcliffe and Brendan Foster get near the microphone. How ofteen can TV companies get the horrendous Clare Balding on screen as well. BBC commentator almost spunked himself when some Taunton Farmer got a bronze in the double trap shooting something or other. Complete unionist wankfest. Was brilliant watching Fiji trounce "Team GB" at rugby sevens.
  11. I saw one guy in a white t shirt, kilt and the boots up the mountain
  12. Well after all the guff about London being the best ever and Rio will be shyte coming from the State broadcaster - have to say the opening ceremony was ok -but the spinning structure surrounding the flame was magnificent. Watched the road cycling race all day yesterday , great race - but the course was outstanding - the whole coverage was like one big tourist advert for Rio - I want to go there -friendly in the Maracan√£ will do nicely
  13. will do - just booked my return to Manchester on the Wednesday -ryanair to Milan -followed by milan to Manchester .
  14. I'm doing the same as you Del - meeting the boys in Bratislava on the Monday - you on the 8:45 Ryanair from Manchester? Ive not booked Budapest Hotel yet - loads of them.
  15. Glenn "second ball Clive" Hoddle. How the fook did he get the co-commentator gig unless iTV were looking for someone even more boring than Andy Townsend
