This could be the most boring thread in the Spurs Abroad forum. I take it you're all Englishmen, talking about the weather?

F#ck Me.....you are so Right once again :oops:

.......One thing that really impresses me, is how you seem to make time to be all over the web-site and answer regularly to all your posts etc.. Just how much time a day do you devote to this community??:bowdown: I for one read most of the topics on a daily basis, and try and put my 2 cents/penny's worth when time allows that takes about 1 to 2 hours max a day..........what really screws me up is the time differrence with the U.K(Europe)...........It gets too late some times too carry on a conversation, and by the time I get back too it the following morning it has completley by-passed me......

ANY THOUGHTS........???:bang:

It may appear as though I'm here all the time, but I really drop in and out through the day. Being based in Hong Kong I have similar issues to you with being online at the right time, but I poke my nose in between patients through the day (which is also the day for you, and night time/morning in England), then I have another look in after the kids have gone to bed, which is noramlly after lunch in England, so it works quite well.

Now two or three years ago, with a much quieter job, then I really was on here all the time. Now that we have our www.spursinhongkong.com website I spend a bit more time on there during our daytime as there are more people around to chat to - feel free to drop in and say hi.

And just for the record, it's gloriously sunny but fecking humid here today.

Patients.......I take it you are a doctor??!!!..............Your Time management suggests that you are also a magician!!!:clap: Me thinks that almost qualifies you as a Witch Doctror :bowdown: Regardless.....I have a good memory and you where the first person to welcome me to this community about a year ago and I apreciated that very much......:beer:

I'm a physio actually. You do have a good memory, but are you good at gambling? Take that 500 vCash under your post count and bet it in the vBookie forum - see if you turn it into thousands. And 70 posts in a year? That's about one every five days!

I have about 6400 vCash riding on Liverpool beating Derby this weekend at 1:4, so barring accidents i hope to have in excess of 7600 to splash out next time around. Defsta? Nah, he's hopeless.

Are Sydney OzSpurs still using that dodgy pub near central station? I had some good times in there, usually heading over for the game after a night out still very worse for wear! Good bunch there though and you get free food. Bonus!

It used to be triple ace bar or something like that when I was out there. The food was only little pies and sausage rolls and stuff, but went down a treat at that time of night with beer and footy. :up:

Nice and close to the two main hostels if you're staying there, but otherwise it could be a bit of a trek getting there and apart from during a Spurs game it's usually empty :lol:

Oh nice, say hello to the hookers for me! :lol:

There's a great little bar round there on Bayswater Road called World Bar that serves cocktails in tea pots - I love that place! And a proper 24hr sports bar for all those Spurs games that really are on at stupid o clock. And a giant Coke sign. :up:
