Setting off for the airport at sparrows tomorrow to send the replacement Gringita on her way. Only you lot would manage to have your personal vet flown out once she was no longer needed!! Enjoy the last 2 weeks and don't make Aimee do all the catering!!
Hola Ed y amigos,
Muy bien!!, excelente!!,ustedes ni siquiera necesitan un guia, porque es evidente que se las estan arreglando de maravilla con esta jornada tan dificil y desafiante.
Creo que ya han realizado lo mejor y nos han demostrado su eficiencia.
I think you had more than enough. Don't you think it is time to come back home?
Anyway, cuidense, y mucha suerte.
Un abrazo para todos ustedes.
P,S I love the way you look after the horses.
I only wish I could have gone to Arsenal that summer, 23 years ago. Unfortunately they found out I was a thoroughly bad bloke and withdrew their offer.
Keep up the good work Inca Riders!
Love Sir Alex x
It's been a while since the brother-in-law stroke 1st cousin made an appearence on this message board, but thought it was high time and that this article might be of interest to you gunners fans out there. Hope you're keeping safe, great to see you home for the weekend Ted and can't wait to hear the full stories upon your return! Baaz
ps. Take it you heard that you now have a qualified vet rather than a trainee one to advise on the horses - now that is what is called an investment!
From the Daily Mirror online:
"Arsenal would have been managed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 1986 had the Gunners not pushed the Manchester United supremo in to making a decision, former Scotland goalkeeper Jim Leighton has declared.
It could have been oh so different for the Arsenal with Fergie at the helm - how they must have kicked themselves for rushing the legendary Scot in that summer, 23 years ago.
Leighton, who Ferguson, 67, signed from his old club Aberdeen in 1988, won 91 caps for Scotland. And, on a BBC radio show, admitted that Arsenal had made Ferguson their No1 choice to succeed Don Howe.
Talking to Mark Chapman on a Radio Five programme, The World Cup Years: 1986, Leighton, 50, revealed that the Highbury board had contacted Ferguson after the 1986 season - but the United legend was preparing Scotland for the World Cup Mexico.
Fergie, who before then had managed East Stirlingshire, St Mirren and from 1978-86 Aberdeen, had only taken on the role as Scotland manager after Jock Stein had died while in charge of the team in the previous September. - And, when pushed to take the position at Highbury, he turned it down, refusing to commit to domestic issues while on international duty, according to Leighton.
Ferguson was offered the Arsenal job, said Leighton. George Graham would have been his assistant, but he wanted to wait until the World Cup was finished before it was getting announced.
Arsenal said they wanted it [a decision] straight away and so he refused it and George Graham got the job.
He wanted to announce it when he got back to Aberdeen, to do it the right way.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
