Man United are playing Glasgow Celtic at the Seahawks Stadium tomorrow in Seattle. Apparently it's sold out, 67,000 seats. That's about what Man United got on average each week playing at Old Trafford last season, which is pretty impressive, and is about the top attendance in the Spanish Primera Liga.

I really hope the Celts and Man United put up a good show. I'm hoping United lose, of course. The last time they met United lost to Celtic 4-3 in I think Ryan Giggs' testimonial match, so hopefully there'll be a thrilling encounter fo the US fans rather than a 0-0.

Chelsea, Birmingham and Newcastle are heading to my part of the world for a pre-season tournament, unfortunately they'll be in Malaysia because the organisers here didn't want to fork out cash.

Zoner sweetest, you've mixed up your Aussie codes. We have 4 codes here and each one has its own name. Rugby League (unique to us and then somewhat regional except for NZ who pushed their way into our comp ), Rugby Union (or just Union which is not unique to us alone) AFL (Australian Rules Football - unique to us) and then what we have to call soccer due to the numerous other 'football' games we have, which is football.

Confused?

Good.

What were you saying again?

I did not mess anyhting up in my mind....I said rugby (different from soccer/football). And I know there was a difference (Union and Aussie rules).

I really don't know much about Rugby and the diffeent styles. Nevermind cricket.....

Brettig is a good cricket teacher.

I tried learning.

I think I am a bad cricket student.

American football is well boring.

REAL football (soccer) is the way forward. The players are MUCH better looking too.
