Learn to speak Thai

I thought Burnley might be a banana skin for the big clubs but it has proved to be a banana skin for the smaller clubs also......... Like Everton.

Police traffic Stop near nightmarket

For the past couple of Saturdays, the police have had quite an elaborate traffic stop set up on Thanon Tongyai (adj. railway line). They even have a table set up on the pavement with 2 officers sitting at it processing the offenders. It seems to be for everything, licence, helmet and drink-driving. ...

Re: Wine, Beer, and Spirits Information

Don't you just love that magical Thai word, "Plomotion?" Normally Tiger Beer is 80฿ for a large bottle but in Preecha Night Market if you buy 3 it is only 165฿. So if you buy 5 it will cost you 325฿ but if you buy 6 it will cost you 330฿. And this is served by a girl that was sent from heaven. http:...

Re: Ex-Vietnam Lieutenant Apologizes for His Role in Massacre

He has changed his tune since the Daily Mail caught up with him a couple of years back. I wonder if his remorse has anything to do with Oliver Stone's upcoming (2011) movie on Mai Lai. Pinkville Mrs Quy was shot in the back, but recovered in a U.S. military clinic after being rescued by the helicopt...

Even Lawrenson predicted 0-2 to United but 0-5... :shock: Great result! Owen's goal reminded me of that goal against Argentina in '98. Why oh why did Benitez not take him back to Anfield. A 3-year contract, maybe a bit part player but he might be a potential match winner. Hypothetically let us say U...
