PostSubject: very sad to see ....   30/7/2011, 20:02

... more and more british troops leaving this country, as i was brought up during the days in the early sixties and grew up as a teenager then during the 70ties and serving the german army then between 79 and 80/81

I felt in love at this time especially to EVERTON FOOTBALL CLUB , beeing at the old Manor Ground in Oxford (OXFORD UNITED) bevore, and later of course at Goodison Park @ Liverpool.

Growing up and listening ( i tink, i wrote this before - anyway) to BFBS reagulary and eagerly, when it came to football on a Saturday afternoon.

I always loved listening to Peter Jones, when he was "ON AIR" but i never forget that tragic day, when Peter Jones was reporting from Hillsborough, and i never ever forget his words, when either a boy or or a girl made the way to the speakers cabine and kind of asking to make bit of a statement, that he / or she was still OK at this tragic day. And i never forget, when Peter Jones said : "of course you can"

Learning English at school was kind of a boring affair and most of me lads failed due to not showing to much interest. What saved me was the love to english football and especially listening day by dy to BFBS.

So, at modern days, when half of me country speaks either "D"english or is classified for using so called "anglizism", at the f*** end, i learnt to speak bad english fluently :-)

I am more than likely not the only german, who had the chance to go this way.

What I am going to say is, that - if or better - when the english comrades are going to finaly leave this country for good, not only for helping us out during then cold war - they will be mised.

Why ? Long story - but a long story short, for me at the end of the day, they could enjoy things way better, than a lot of germans do here.

I.E. when it was announced by, whoever it was at BFBS : I declare the weekend open ...

Nobody would have said this at this time on a german radio station - : the weekend was there : u know what i mean :-)


Hope, that was not to much away from topic, as it turns in´to chit chat


cheers

Ulli cheers


ps @ admins : sorry - but will you move this into "general" topics"

thank you Wink

Hi Ulli,

Is that the white horse of hannover on your shield badge ? Interesting as near where
I live in Wiltshire we also have a white horse, which is at a place called Uffington. It is a prehistoric site and shows the outline of a horse made up of crushed white chalk stone.
