Footballing thoughts

So, that means that next season, Brighton will be playing Leeds. I wonder what the Elland Road fans will make of the Withdean?
It also means that Brighton will play against Bobby Zamora at the Hammers, assuming that he doesn’t transfer to another team. I’m sure that at least one other blogger will be "delighted" about that.

Jools Holland is playing an open-air concert near Tunbridge Wells soon. I’ve seen him twice before, but never with Sam Brown, who I know to be excellent. Hels has never seen him. But is it possible to justify forking out around £100 for two people for one concert? (I’m including two tickets at £28.50, two "booking fees" at £3.00, a fiver for petrol, £20 for picnic stuff and another fiver for a bottle of wine). Will we get value for money?


Very good luck to Brighton and Hove Albion in the play-off against Bristol City at the Millennium Stadium tomorrow afternoon. It has to be said that the Seagulls are very much the underdogs, and we’ve only got this far by virtue of a good deal of luck. That luck will have to hold, as City inflicted one of the biggest defeats of the season on us earlier in the season. But Brighton are a strong team defensively, and if they can hold their nerve, might just scrape a win. I don’t think it’ll be by more than a single goal, and I honestly don’t think it’s the most likely outcome. But I’ve been wrong before.
I won’t be watching the match. I’ll be hiding behind the sofa.


This evening, H and I will be at Lord Percy’s Grand Birthday Bash. It’s a fancy dress do, and I’ll be in a fetching Superman outfit. H, on the other hand, will be dressed in PVC as CatWoman. I don’t think she is likely to let me post a picture here, unfortunately for you!


I’ve just upgraded WordPress from version 1.02 to version 1.2. The upload took about 2 minutes over my broadband connection. Then I used the built-in upgrade software – that took about 25 seconds to execute.
Which rather knocks the spots off of the last MT upgrade that I did.
