  1. I suppose they are worst places to be stuck, but anyone around these part of the world , please identify yourselves
  2. Interesting comments about Whittaker from this Accies fan: [quote user="TheAccies"]I''ve been looking forward to this day. Congratulations to Alex Neil for being linked to such a high profile job. I go to every single Hamilton game, home and away, for 3 years. 2 of those years have been a struggle. Alex Neil; A hard talking manager who knows how to get average players to over perform. He has no knowledge of how to deal with big players, and there have been a few bust ups between him and few of the non-scottish players at Hamilton who haven''t toed the line. It''s his system and I worry for you Norwich fans, your team will be selected on ethic rather than ability. Alex Neil''s appointment mean Whittaker will be a Norwich City mainstay for the next 3 years. He plays direct football and many of our goals come from knock downs from the big man, I hope he leaves because I have come to realise one thing... I would rather watch football that excites, than football that wins, just... All the best, Your friend from Hamilton[/quote]
  3. 1. Costa Ricans call themselves Ticos and Ticas. 2. Costa Rica is slightly smaller than Lake Michigan. 3. There are 800 miles of coastline, both on the Atlantic and Pacific. 4. Costa Rica border Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. 5. It only takes up .03% of planet’s surface but holds 5% of its biodiversity! 6. There are over 130 species of fish, 220 of reptiles, 1,000 butterflies (10% of the world’s butterflys are in Costa Rica!), 9,000 plants, 20,000 species of spiders and 34,000 species of insects! 7. More than 25% of Costa Rican land is protected national parks and refuges. 8. They don’t really have summers and winters like the USA, but a dry season that runs December-April and a rainy season that runs May-November. 9. The average life expectancy of 77 years is one of the highest in the world. 10. Costa Rica has a female president, Laura Chinchilla. 11. Costa Rica has no standing army. It was constitutionally abolished in 1949. 12. They claim a 96% literacy rate. In very poor and rural areas, where children can’t get to schools, they teach classes over a national radio station. 13. Costa Rica is a popular choice for American expatriates who want to retire in the tropics. 14. When a woman is pregnant they say she is “con luz,” or “with light.” 15. A saying I love is that when someone is your significant other, your other half, they are your “media naranja,” or the other half of your orange. 16. “Pura vida” is the national saying, which means “pure life,” a sunny, feel good expression used as a greeting, goodbye, or if someone asks how you are doing. 17. The average Tico makes $6,000 a year and the average wage labor is $10 per day, the highest in Central America. 18. Costa Rica is aiming to be carbon neutral by 2012. 19. San Jose is only a 2 hour flight from Miami and 3 ½ from New York. They have nonstop flights from New York, Houston, and Miami. 20. Names are confusing in Costa Rica. Ticas do not take their husband''s last name. The woman uses her full maiden name for life. No changing of national ID cards, drivers licenses, etc. She also adds her mother''s maiden name. Children take their father’s name. 21. The older generations of Ticos are not tall, so most furniture, like chairs, couches, beds, etc. are built 6-8 inches lower than in the US. 22. Locks (on houses, doors, and gates) almost always work backwards. 23. Milk, eggs, and other perishable items are often sold unrefrigerated. 24. It is common to buy wine in little paper boxes, which you do refrigerate. 25. Often times milk is sold in a little plastic bag, and you have to cut the edge with scissors to open it, which often results in inexperienced gringos covered in milk and putting water on their cereal. 26. Costa Rica is a Catholic country but ensures freedom of religion. 27. Nearly all Catholic churches face west. 28. On the Atlantic Coast, the Caribbean side, most of the population is descended from African roots, like Jamaica, and speak Spanish as well as a patois. 29. A Costa Rican female swimmer won a gold medal in the 1996 summer games in Atlanta. 30. Costa Rica is the longest-standing democracy in Central America. 31. Costa Rica is responsible for booking flights for the England National football team. 32. Costa Rica football team has a value of £18.3 million as opposed to England combined value of £550 million. 33. Gary Lineker looks like a twat in his Italian shirt. Jorge Luis Pinto looks class in his Italian suit.
  4. I can confirm that I met 2 Swedish Journalists at "The Fat Cat & Canary" pub this evening taking pictures of the NCFC memorabilia room. They confirmed that they were in Norwich because Johan was in Norwich.
  5. Specsavers have a special offer at the moment Spartacus..
  6. "Bassong was then replaced by Harry Barker, before Becchio was forced off after a nasty collision with Waring. " from the official website. Do we know if the injury is serious? as this will leave us with only one fit striker.
  7. Tem alguém tem uma idéia do que o comentarista está dizendo na corrente?
  8. I have a bet of £50 with an Ipswich supporter that we are staying up. At 16/1, if I put a bet of £3, will that means that at worst I will make a profit of £1 if we go down and a profit of £47 if we stay up.
