Just got our tickets. First final for the mini exiles. They're familiar with Sam will Tear you Apart Again and He's a Baby! He's a Baby! They also wouldn't know a forward pass if one gave them a Lego set.
Really looking forward to playing FC. They have talent everywhere you look, and an indomitible spirit.
I must say that Whiting is a wonderful player - such a great rugby brain. Surely he's worth a starting spot?

Thanks for the kind words EW, are your mini exiles training to officiate Wigan?

You're perfectly correct about Whiting, what a player, never seems to make a mistake or miss a tackle and has an uncanny knack of being in the right place at the right time when scoring important tries. Marcus Bai will back that up. Not sure why Gentle has him as a bench player but then, he's got Hull to Wembley, I haven't.

Glad to see Whiting getting the credit he deserves. Always performs well when I have seen him, a real handful with power and pace, and multi positional.

Good God Steve, even Richard himself might suggest you're a bit wide of the mark there.

Speed of thought perhaps, that's as far as it goes I reckon.

They said he lacked pace on the tv on Sunday which surprised me as he seems to be pacey against us each Derby match. Sure you know better but glad to big him up.

Read into that what you will. Another innuendo perhaps.

Whatever happens, as you are playing Wigan, I presume you will get into the ground about 15 minutes after kick-off?

It depends if he asks me what time do you set off from here for the game, or asks me how long does it take to get to the game from here.

Possibly, depending on how reliable the locals' advice is, even if they twist my words around...

You can just bog off.

I see that getting to the final didn't particularly put you in a better mood then?

Getting to the final did, sorting my stupid holiday logistics didn't.

Just back from my holiday, so I was glad to see the video recorder had done its job and I could watch this match in full last night. Excellent stuff! Here's hoping for a classic final. :)
