Run for individual 29 July tonight

To mark HRH birthday yesterday there is a race/run in his honour tonight starting and finishing at Tungsri Muang. It's originally down as a 5pm start but think it will be nearer 6pm when the sun starts to go down a bit. Apparently 3,000 entries.... But certainly there will be a lot of traffic conges...

Re: World Cup

I think the Ashes will be a low scoring series.
The two Aussie sides involved in a low scoring game and England all out for 85 then Ireland 38
It would be a brave man who buys tickets for the 4th and 5th days. :D

Re: Thai Baht Still Too STRONG v. GBP

I think in time the GBP will recover.... maybe a couple of years... but until then it will be a rough ride for those trying to survive on just a Government Pension.

Re: World Cup

Absolutely amazing that a World Cup Final is decided by the number of boundaries scored... you couldn't make it up! But congrats to England that they even got to that stage, looking dead and buried at 86-4. Star men on the day, undoubtedly Stokes and Buttler. Yes, the first country to be world champ...

Re: The "I WISH" Thread

For Brexit we need strong politicians in the UK,to deal with the EU,not these mamby pamby self centered jessies we have at the moment so I wish we could sign up Vladimir Putin on a 3 year contract as PM with that chap from the Philippines as his deputy. Also I wish /hope that England win the cricket...

Re: World Cup

Well, I'm happy to say it looks like I was very wrong about England's chances of winning the World Cup. I think the big difference is the return of Roy and also just playing one spinner which gives the team a better balance. Sad to see Smithy going for 21 in his only over, including 3 consecutive si...

Re: World Cup

Congrats to England on what was a surprise victory... for me anyway. England are a bit of an enigma.... how can they play so well against India yet so poorly against Sri Lanka? And India 31 runs short but only 5 wickets down! The vindaloo coming out of their fans rear entrance will be even more pain...

Re: World Cup

Personally I think there is more chance of Rafa Benitez staying on as manager of Newcastle than there is of England winning the cricket World Cup. Mind you if we would have had Anderson and Broad opening the bowling yesterday, with the ball seaming about, the Aussie's would have been lucky to make 200

Udon Thani Night Run 22 June

There's an Udon Night Run tonight starting and finishing at Thungsri Muang. Half Marathon starts at 6pm,10.5km at 7pm and 5km at 7.15pm. Quite a few thousand runners overall. It's going to be tough going...... Current temperature 40c 104f. So be aware that there is likely to be very heavy traffic in...

England look to be heading for defeat chasing just 233 to win they are currently 183-8 with under 8 overs to go.
Stokes on 55 not out is there only hope.

No more non o multi entry visas from London

The Royal Thai Embassy in London have announced that they will no longer be issuing non o multi entry visas.
Could affect quite a few people I would think ?

Re: English Prem 2019/20

Personally I think they will struggle to make the top 6....top 10 is maybe more realistic. Mata is OK as a squad player but not first choice. Lukaku looks like he is on his way to Inter Milan and I hope those two little shits Pogba and Martial will be gone too. But look at guys like Jones, Smalling,...

Kiwi's almost managed to salvage defeat from the jaws of victory :lol: Some of the SA fielding was straight out of "Keystone cops", and the kiwis only managed to get home after still leving themselves needing 8 from the final over ..... proper "sqeeky bum" time =; Williamson was actually out caught...

Re: Currency Crisis Happening Now

20% differential is minimal compared to the Pound Sterling. When I first came to Udon in 2004 it was 72 baht to the Pound, now it's 39 and still falling. That's a decrease of over 45% if my maths are correct? Many of us Brit's are surviving by drinking rainwater and eating insects from the garden ! ...

Re: World Cup

Seems strange and almost a question mark as to why the Indians have not had the same games as others in the draw. They have been 1 game behind all the others and will be for another couple of weeks. Allows a team to move into a game knowing exactly what they must achieve in stats compared to others...

Yes, sorry, I should have followed the posts through. I wasn't aware of the involvement of Citi Bank as a third party.

I get my company pension transferred to the Bangkok Bank and it has the source FTT against the amount which I believe indicates it comes from abroad.

Re: World Cup

West Indies 321-8 Bangladesh 322-3
Surprisingly easy for Bangladesh who still have an outside chance of making the semi finals.
The West Indies now have no room to manoeuvre and must win all their remaining matches.... a disappointing campaign for them so far.
