As John Barnes once mused:
“You’ve got to hold and give but do it at the right time
You can be slow or fast but you must get to the line
They’ll always hit you and hurt you, defend and attack
There’s only one way to beat them, get round the back
Catch me if you can cos I’m the England man
And what you’re looking at is the master plan
We ain’t no hooligans, this ain’t no football song
Three lions on my chest, I know we can’t go wrong”
Yes it’s a hash and it’s an En-ger-land footyball match. More from FOBG:
On a more serious note, I have been assured that this Monday there is both a hash trail AND a game of football. But fear not, for you will not have to choose as you can have both. A hash trail which ‘guarantees’ a return to the Rad in time for the football. Myfanwy (the hare) is so sure that he will get us all back to the Rad where the football will be playing, that he has guaranteed to buy beer for anybody not back to the Radegund by 8, for the rest of the Euro’s.*
*He may not have used those actual words, but I was reading between the lines.
So, the Rad, 7pm, Monday 20 June. Express yourself.
