Is it the other way around? Oh, well fair-dos. Typical American behaviour. Next they'll be wanting ad breaks in the middle of each half and time outs and corners counting as half a goal and the like smiley - cross

And I agree Skora is a cracking name for a striker. And he probably will score against the Blades as well. We never get anything out of games against Preston, not ever smiley - wah

Yes you're right, it was one those weeks smiley - erm

I was up and around after midnight last night, and I realised that that Charleston game was available on a webcast, so I listened in. Very bizarre - the commentator was some British bloke who was getting awfully excited by the 'action', yet all I could hear of the crowd noise was the slight patter of applause every now and again.

Then there was the fun of the half time adverts - apparently as a Battery fan I can get all sorts of offers at downtown Charleston pizza joints and General Motors dealers smiley - bigeyes
