    Manchester has been invaded!!

    Yup - got off the bus in Manchester City Centre this morning.. headed to my local McDonalds for my regular coffee intake.. only to leave Manchester outside... and enter Glasgow!!

    Yup Manchester is now twinned with Glasgow as about 100,000 Glasgow Rangers fans descend on it for the UEFA cup match.

    Having a glasgow twang myself.. and with there being approx 2 dozen Ger's fans in there.. i decided i should kee my trap shut before i got harranged by jubilent fans asking 10 dozen questions and being dragged off with the crowd..

    Anyway i grabs my coffee and leg it out of there and head for my next bus...

    Only to find that Albert Square (no not the one off the telly!!) is to all bar rangers Fans and all buses are being diverted - had to walk about half a mile thru hoards of Rangers Fans chanting away merrily .. did i tell you it was only 7am?.. and in a very happy mood.

    Looks like i'll need another bus home

    Anyway - hope Ranger's trounce the Ruskies

    Corby is fairly quiet today ... apart from the Hoops fans hoping to keep ahead of things in the SPL.

    I drove down the motorway to preston this morning and the motorway was full of glaswegians all with flags and scarfs out the windows.

    I'm suppose to be going manchester later and i'm going near city stadium so god knows how long it'll be to get round anywhere!!!

    go on rangers is all i'm going to say!

    Looking forward to this match tonight! Zenit are a great side to watch, and are deservedly favourites for the game but i will be cheering Rangers on.

    football:
    Game for pansies "Rugby" is a much better game played by men with odd shaped balls.
