Coming soon....

It's Week-end de football européen for us next week. Big Deaks, Nicky Boy and I are off to French France to see:


Grenoble Foot 38 v PSG (21:02:09)

Followed by:

St Etienne v Bordeaux (22:02:09)

I've also had time this week to update the Your European Football Weekends section of the this site. There are so many treats in store for you there it's embarrassing. We have:

Snowball fights at Inverurie Loco Works in our Scottish section

The Lyon v St Etienne derby in the French section

Asian Football weekends anyone!? The Rest of the World section

Solar-powered floodlights (I know!) in the Spanish section

More San Siro shenanigans in our Italian section

Local derbies and fan displays in The Netherlands

And finally, the feel good story of 2009 in the Germany section

In between all this, Cynical Dave and I have been going to non-league matches here in England. Now I didn't want to publish this but my press officer insisted. It's a quote that appeared on the Dartford FC fans forum after Cynical and I had been up to cover their local derby with Maidstone a few weeks back. Here it is then. The Duke wrote this. Those of a nervous disposition look away now. In fact everybody look away aside from maybe my own Mother:

"A REALLY GOOD READ AND YES SOME GREAT COMMENTS ABOUT THE DARTS BUT THE OVERALL MESSAGE IS THAT THESE GUYS ARE A CREDIT TO NON LEAGUE FOOTBALL

HOPE THEY RETURN AT SOME STAGE WHEN WE CAN BUY THEM A [ WELL EARNED ] BEER !"

There we go. A credit to non-league football. *blush* Not a dry eye in the EFW office I can tell you. We are not ones to get carried away/blow our own trumpets here but there is talk in these parts that we may get the slogan 'A credit to non-league football' made up into a t-shirt. What do you think!?

So that's it for now folks. See you in France.

Sincères salutations sportives!
