|May-19-12|| ||harrylime: Bayern is Bavaria..
Chelsea is a hated team on the Thames..
Chelsea 1 v 0 Bavaria
You'll soon learn where football's home is.
As for the Euros, I'll quote you when Germany go AWOL ..
|May-19-12|| ||Call Me TC: English teams have been in seven of the last eight finals. In the last 15 years, Spainish (6), English (4) and Italian teams (3) have won 13 times. It's getting a bit repetitive.|
|May-19-12|| ||harrylime: English teams reside from the biggest leagues in the world and the historic home of football .. |
The Fabs ..
|May-19-12|| ||Call Me TC: The English are racist pig-dogs.|

The English team will watch that
on TV @ football's home.

|May-20-12|| ||HeMateMe: What are <sunbed thiefs In Majorca..........
|May-20-12|| ||goodevans: Majorca is one of those tourist destinations frequented by Brits and Germans alike. The Germans have a reputation of sending a volunteer from their party down to the hotel pool each morning at the crack of dawn to lay towels out on all the sunbeds before going back to bed. When the Brits come down a few hours later the poolside is empty but all the sunbeds are taken.|
Whether this reputation is deserved is not for me to say.
|May-20-12|| ||HeMateMe: For being a land surrounded by water, England really doesn't have much in the way of beaches. I was in the Landsend area, the far west of England, a few years ago. There was a rocky beach with some enterprising kids wearing wet suits, and *surfing*! Yes, surfing in the U.K. But, it was a stretch. I don't there is much there in the way of good beaches, except maybe a little bit of the southeast coast.|
If I was at a hotel, and there was an empty chair with a towel on it, I would just move the towel and sit down.
Those Germans--always looking for more lebensraum.
|May-20-12|| ||diceman: <pericles of athens: <diceman> - excellent questions.
i've only been playing for two years, but i would say that it's a strong move for three reasons:
1. it attacks the center
2. it allows the queen bishop (DSB) to be developed
3. playing P-Q3 instead of P-Q4 would probably require white to fianchetto his king bishop (LSB), which white might not have wanted to do (however i recall fisher playing a game like this in M6MG)
Thatís a good start, now you have to look at the other moves which arenítí bad but a matter of taste.
(and the transposition possibilities)
Fischer thought a Sicilian where 2...e6 was played made the fianchetto more appropriate.
Much was made of Fischer playing 1.b3 against Ulf Andersson, Siegen 1970.
While there are many ďb3 onlyĒ type lines, if you look at the game
Fischer was playing a Sicilian reversed after 11.Nbd2.
Obviously a comfortable and familiar position for him.
Fischer vs Ulf Andersson, 1970
|May-20-12|| ||goodevans: <HeMateMe> England has some fantastic beaches ... and some pretty crap ones too.|
The beaches of North Cornwall and North Devon are good enough to attract Aussie surfers during the Aussie winter.
Formby, north of Liverpool, is wonderful in a different way, being backed by dunes and a nature reserve. But it's better suited to kite flying than sunbathing and the sea there would freeze your nuts off.
Just north of that is Blackpool. ...dump!
|May-20-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Re: "For being a land surrounded by water..."
Oh, what's the word again? Oh yeah, island.
|May-20-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Last week I learned the importance of Qe2 in the type of chess game I play. The heavens parted and I had a breakthrough. For my next games I plan to spit polish the e2 square before the game starts and place my Queen there in the opening feeling satisfied.|
|May-21-12|| ||BishopofBlunder: <goodevans: ...Just north of that is Blackpool. ...dump!>|
Heresy! How can it be a dump? Ian Anderson wrote a song about it...
|May-21-12|| ||MarkFinan: Blackpool Is the Las Vegas of northern England!! ;)
Just along from the Golden Mile we have the sandy dunes of St. Annes, when the sun comes out It's beautiful on there.. And so are the women!
<WP> Island, or no Island, we're one of the most powerful nations In the world.. We may be small, but we're tougher than countries 5 times our size :)
<Call me TC> <The English are racist pig-dogs>!!!
Why?? We laugh at ourselves just as much as we laugh at other nations.. It's not our fault that the Germans are unintentionally funnier lol..
<HeMateMe> I do exactly what you say you'd do regarding the sunbeds.. The thing Is when you come down to lie by the pool and the only sunbeds not taken have towels with the German national flag on them, i also remove them, but they tend to end up at the bottom of the pool!
Then when Gunther comes strolling down In his speedo's at dinner time, I just forget how to speak English... Because when It comes to night time, the 'humerous' Germans keep me awake with their loud annoying arguments..
Happens everytime I go away...
And whoever said sarcastically that Bayern are as much German football as Drogba and Abramovich are English was actually stating a fact..
Bayern Munich ARE German football, you have no other top clubs.. They don't even have one club from Berlin In their top flight now!!!
Can you Imagine the EPL with no teams from London??
|May-21-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<Mark>
Blackpool.... Ah, happy memories!
I played in the British U-18 championship there once. Liked the pies!
One afternoon I played in a footie game on the beach with, amongst others, Mark Hebden and Michael Adams.
It was also there that I first saw a young Indian GM with the name Vishy Anand. (Those three were playing in the British Chp. proper.)
|May-21-12|| ||k.khalil: My rating is 1300 and I just played a very funny game where I check mated the opponent rated 1500 in a 5 minute each game using only a bishop and Queen. |

Dieser ding muss Ich auch haben.Kellner,schnell !

|May-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: Are members of the British Commonwealth eleibiglee to play in the closed U.K. junior and regular chess championships? I was just wondering about the earlier comment, where the writer mentioned seeing Vishy Anand on the beach, playing in the Brit. under 18 championship.|
That would mean top Aussies or Canandians could play in these tournaments?
|May-21-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Rolling Stones, "Fiji Gin":
|May-21-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: indeed they are. Ian Rogers played at the 1987 British in Swansea whilst Murshad (from Bangladesh) also played at Blackpool.|
btw, sorry for the ambiguity. I saw Anand in the playing hall, not on the beach!
|May-21-12|| ||WannaBe: Robin Gibbs have past away. RIP.|
