Scouse....a new dish

I am sure that all of you out there know the origins of the word scouse as used to describe those likeable witty rogues from Liverpool. Basically it is a stew of meat, vegetables and ships bicuits....sounds lovely.

So after tonights Chimps league draw we will start with a dish of scouse, washed down with fine red wine and finishing off with Dutch Cheese!!!!! And who said there was no taste in football.

To translate Galatasaray were drawn with:

PSV Eindhoven
Girodins Bordeaux

Not too bad really. Could have been alot worse if we had been drawn in the Barca Chelsea group and thankfully domestic harmony was not threatened as we avoided Man Utd!!

First match is 12 September against Bordeaux at Ali Sami Yen............

And on Saturday its Gaziantep at home....

Congratulations to Tranzonspor and Kayseri who made it through to the next round of the UEFA Cup.

I was hoping for your lot to draw Man U. just for the post-match blog entry... that's assuming there would be survivors.

I think the last match in the group will be the crucial one.

CimBom at home to Liverpool.

A tasty morsel to look forward to me thinks ??!!

Ah yes, but who will be feasting and who picking up the crumbs......drawing Man U would have been an absolute disaster.....

Eski Kanka Jim said...

I disagree with you both. If Hibs had been `in the hat` I would rather draw ManYoo than Liverpool.

Liverpool will be the team to chase Chelsea to the winning post this season me thinks.
