    Happy new year to you Kitty and everyone else here ๐ŸŽ‰ On a personal note, I feel like I have become a better person this year. I have more of an appreciation of life and those around me and despite the **** we have endured, I'm the happiest and most content that I have been in years. Looking forward to what the future holds!

    Happy Christmas to you and your family too Kitty. Happy Christmas too to everyone else here. My Finnish Christmas didn't happen this year because of the ban on travel that was applied on the UK on Monday. Flights were cancelled literally hours before we were due to go to the airport ๐Ÿ˜” At the end of the day though, I am here with my wife and kids and we are able to celebrate it together. Others haven't been as lucky as I am right now so I am grateful for that. Let us all hope and pray that next year will give us some good times again and allow us to get back to some kind of normality. I think we deserve it. Happy Christmas all xxx

    I really don't expect snow for Christmas but I live in hope! Latest weather report I've seen for Helsinki is potential for some on xmas day, so here's hoping! Going to be a special experience this xmas. Really looking forward to spending time with my wife's family and also looking forward to some joulutorttu ๐Ÿ˜

    Will be spending my Christmas in Finland this year for the first time. Really looking forward to the Christmas ham and pastries! Hopefully there will be some snow to make it that little bit more special ๐Ÿ˜

    Travelling Thread...

    Needless to say, after my last post, we introduced quarantine for returning from Spain in the UK so we cancelled the holiday. That, along with the Finns making us quarantine too, made us decide to go nowhere this year ๐Ÿ˜ญ Hoping to go to Helsinki for xmas this year for family purposes so quarantine is not an issue (my wife's brother has a habit of getting me ****** so won't leave his place much) so fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

    Travelling Thread...

    Depending on where you live and where you want to go, travelling is already possible. I have a trip booked to Malaga in 4 weeks time. Just hoping that things don't get worse again before we go!

    I'd imagine it's a bot post, Kitty. Seen that kind of post across the forums fairly often.

    Day 1 of working from home/partial lockdown and I'm going mad already. Don't think the family will survive the week. Seriously though, stay safe everyone โค

    The Game Thread!

    Recently spent 2 weeks in Helsinki but the only home games were the day I arrived and the day I left ๐Ÿ™„. Turned down the chance to see HJK turn Schalke over in a champs league qualifier a few years back. The ticket price was ridiculous! Some guy named Pukki scored 2 that night ๐Ÿ˜‰ I agree with you on Fifa. If they added the Finnish league, I would certainly consider buying it. So much more value to me than their new gimmick.

    As a guy who has been to a couple of HJK matches, I would love the Finnish league!

    Yeah, those fans are ***** but it's not like there aren't Aussie fans like that too. Remember Simon Jones 2003? Anyway, by the time he has amassed 1000 runs in the series and won the Ashes, I'm sure he'll get over it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It knocked about 20 years off my life that match and I also have no fingernails left. I hope to NEVER have to go through that again! Stokes is a legend and a hero!

    I don't know if anyone else has been watching the womens world cup but it has been brilliant. I went in to it with a lot of pessimism but the games have been very entertaining and high tempo with little stoppage in play. If you haven't seen any, I recommend tuning in to the final on Sunday.

    R&D System 2019

    This is fine in principle but what concerns me is that the 'maxed out' Alfa Romeo was not influenced by the player in a 2 year simulated career. It was completely AI controlled. If you play as you suggest, then you would most likely fall behind the other teams in this year's game. I didn't play last years' game but am seriously considering going out and getting this one but the ridiculous speed in upgrades along with the driver transfer issue is really putting me off.

    I think the final may be live on Youtube again like it was last year so you can catch it there possibly. Chance to make it an English European lock out tonight with Arsenal and Chelsea. #nobrexit

    Had a service/mot at Kwik fit once and it wasn't great. The guy serving was a prat and it took them 3 hours longer than they promised me. On the way home down the dual carriageway, a car pulled up beside me to let me know my wheel was 'on fire'. Turns out the idiots hadn't adjusted the handbrake correctly resulting in the pad rubbing against the disc. Had to take it back in and wait ages again for them to correct it. That was my experience anyway but not all centres will be that incompetent. Just don't go to Bletchley!

    Keep the faith. League 2 normally throws up final day drama and a great escape. The fat lady ain't sung yet!

    Soft spot for Yeovil after 8 seasons on football manager. Hope they survive but also want Macclesfield to do well under big Sol. As for Spurs, as Gooner I don't want them winning the Champs League but a North London Super Cup would be amazing if we also won the Europa League!

    I've noticed it too. Morning UK time seems slow, especially around 5am GMT but by afternoon, it seems fine. This isn't just today, it seems to be an everyday occurrence.

    Do you seriously not know what an Uber driver is? You know, it's quicker and easier to Google something you don't know or understand than to wait for an answer on here.

    Speaking of Finland, my wife is going back there for a week to see her mum. Obviously I wish she wasn't going but I wouldn't dream of denying her the chance to spend time with her as she's getting quite old now. Get to go again in the summer myself too ๐Ÿ˜

    Had some great banter on the old forums and some real characters too. The follow up forum wasn't too bad but it wasn't quite the same.
