He's in for a shock if he's really expecting September in Hokkaido to be like it is in England.

I'd like to see them get rid of goals from penalties. Nothing more boring than a team choosing to kick the ball instead of run with it. It's not football....

Maybe you're angering the soccer gods by your use of the vile "s-word".

Try "football gods" in future ; )

Great song. I tried playing it in an English class years back, and, without exception, the students cracked up laughing at the supposedly melancholy introduction.

I keep it to myself now....

Could have done with this a couple of times in the past. Maybe Kagoshima Chuo back to Fukuoka is a bit much to ask, though....

Got you. Though, as a proud northerner, I'd say you're welcome to all of it. From the south coast to Manchester.

@Beowulf

Read the article again. The Aussie government were in no way looking to release the video. They were intent on protecting Japan's image.

Rightly or wrongly is a wholely different question.

Completely different question.

I confess I can't keep up with semantic gymnastics like that.

There should be an exam, like there is for citizenship in some countries.

Not so me or my daughter....
