Before hand, I arranged to meet Blunty and Johno in the Jug for a quick one - however they only turned up at 7:25 - when we had to be in the pizza place for 7:30 - nice.
Anyhoooo, we got our food, fursal was made to drink a combination of red wine, white wine, champers, lager - all mixed up in the glass together - in one. We paid the bill of around 120 quid between the 15 or so of us (including sales monkey's, technical gurus (well me and rich) and some of the lovely students (including the lovely, but full of cold, sarah). We then ventured across to the Jug and Jester where someone had the great idea of bunging 10 quid in the kitty if you wanted a drink, and then sitting outside in the cold and rain where the heaters didnt work - nice.
A couple of older students turned up and got boozed up - one of which abusing Johno, which nearly came to blows - I tried to defuse the situation by accidently tripping up and pouring 10cms of Fosters over the back of his tshirt - however, and luckily, it was teflon coated and just ran off. Fursal had more drinks and got wasted, then - thank jesus - Gold by Spandau Ballet came on the PA system - allowing myself and Rich to do a loud X Factor style introduction and getting the rest of the pub involved.
We got kicked out of there (i think) where we decided upon either sugar, the well or rios - rios was decided although Fursal got lost and ended up in sugar (he thinks) and we ended up hooking up with a 2nd IBM leaving do in Rios where most of the management was getting slightly sozzled. One of my old colleagues was in there, and i got talking to her - only for Rich to suggest I was on the "tap" which of course I wasnt.
We stumbled out at about 1:40am, where Rich decided to get a taxi because he was "Si Cald" leaving me to walk home in the summer warmth.
Slept in until 9:15 and felt rubbish - lost my voice and struggled to get milk from Somerfield - and got asked directions to the plumbers, only for the old guy thinking he got directions from Barry White.
Rich has some photos of the night somewhere - a link will appear here shortly.

One of my last memories of K9 - was on a dodgy planet where people were killed with some kind of Ribena style marks across the lips. Maybe I had flu or mumps at the time and having visions from a different world. For anyone who wants more info on K9 - the official website has more photos - fantastic

Flood Lights - for them cold winter evening matches
Leam kicked off, and after 7 mins, were 2-0 up due to dodgy defending, terrible keeping and the oppositions left back preoccupied with the supports on the touch line and the "lino". He wasnt getting into the game at all, and reminds me about when Newcastle played Boro a couple of seasons ago, where the Toon players spend 90 mins just arguing and talking to the ref about decisions. After about 35 mins, Rocester conceded probably the funniest grass root goal you could see - someone from the Leam right wing, chipped all the defence, the keep takes the ball in his hands and drops it .. complete clanger. Its what all xmas "football blooper" dvd's are about to be fair. The keeper then had the rest of the 1st being abused by the home fans - and their number 3, was still arguing the toss over a foul.
By this time we'd had a portion of chips each and a diet coke - and half time was closing in and was time for the raffle tickets - we didnt win, although its £7.50 a year to become a member of the supports group - bargain, and I'm considering it.
2nd half at the New Wind Mill ground
One of the funniest football one liners I've heard for a long time was when the away keeper was about to take a free kick from just outside his box, the ref shouts over, "Keeps, hold on to the ball for a minute will you!?". To which the keep (already having a shocking game) shouts back, "That would be a fucking first" - wearing a cheeky little grin. He got a good round of aplause from home and away supports - which didnt stop him conceding another goal in the last minutes of the 2nd half to make it 4-0 after full time.
On the way back, John and Debbie took me on a magical mystical tour of where they used to live, and a trip to ASDA - which I found amusing (being an ex-employee of ASDA) and bought 35 quids worth of random stuff - including lightbulbs, DVD disks, popcorn flavoured milk and nutella - mm Nutella (tm)

Because we didnt have a pen to write the card, the ratecard terrorist called Blunty decided HSBC was the answer and we borrowed the pen that you use to fill out the paying ins etc - much to the delight of the bank employees and customers.

Anyhoo, after chucking out time, we used the magical key to the Well again, where it was a little more quieter, and a little cooler - so we sat there, sipping Morgan Spiced Rum, chin wagging and trying not to wind up Larry, but also trying to make her grin - never works - ever.

- A rather large waterfall that borders America and Canada - which I'd never heard of
- A mount with faces of famous presidents
- Lots of petrol stations to find the craziest fizzy drink product
After much fun and laughter (mainly at my expence) we returned to the Canal House Residence, parted our ways and retired to chill. A very nice night out, very relaxing and and lush company on a lovely Sunday Night

- You cant sell / loan loads of players out of the club, and not buy the same amount, if not a) better, b) the same level of ability - and expect to get somewhere. Yes we've got Parker and Emre - but lost Bellamy, Robert and 2/3 GOOD defenders
- You cannot do business on probably the biggest day of the season so far (yes, match day 4) - couldnt you wait til the weekend to do the loan deal with Butt ???
- The way we are - and solid fact - we woll not progress in the table - and the board and manager has to accept that
- You dont pull apart a team and expect results (i could be proved wrong here - with a bit of luck) - you replace people and gently introduce them to the fold. You cant expect Parker and Emre - to replace Bellamy/Butt/Robert in one day - but you cant expect them to perform miracles!
So after a 2nd half of misery! and having to pay for a bottle of wine at the correct - I decided I needed some food. I previously played football and went around the ex to ensure she was ok - or if I could do anything to help (something of which has left me eating away for 2 weeks - and now a little relief off my shoulders) - in between being *shoved* off the ball and landing on the base of my spine and knacking my arm up with astro-turf burns.
Anyhoo, what did I get free? Garlic Naan Bread - Buy one, get one free! fantastic - no the size of Canada! MM - Canada!
