My poor english plus your subtle and fine irony plus your keen and sharp writing is too much for me.
Me rindo.
I have no idea what do you mean but I have the feeling it has to do with the phrase 'cría fama y echate a dormir'.

Anyway 'fac ut gaudeam' is not rude at all, au contraire monsieur chat.

Don't tell me that you don't know what it means!!!

Trust City to cock things up. Berbatov - you know you don't want to go there. And Robinho, are you mad???

I see that you know it... now.

It's hard to be the worst boy on this side of Pecos's river, but life use to be like that, sometimes easy and pleasant and sometimes unmerciful.

Leave aside the prima donnas of the Primera División - Tenerife made a great start to the Segunda División season by beating Nastic 3-2 with late goals from Ángel which you can see from a link on the Latest News page of my website:

OK, so I thought it was about time that we had an update, 6 matches into the season.

Gato 55 (max difference 9 - Getafe)
Tiddles 66 (max difference 9 - Betis)
Yuno 70 (max difference 11 - Almeria)

Some things never change.

Getting closer.

Like Spurs, a slow start but just as if you have decent players it will tell in the end, if you have great predictive powers it will eventually show also.
Sort of thing.

and....... if your predictive powers are not so great.... that will also show in the end, which is why bookies are rich and punters are poor!

You had to predict the la liga finishing positions -if you join now you could probably win.

My liege, last summer there was a brief hiatus on this site and I was left quite disillusioned having been the subject of harsh and unpleasant posts and private messages, and so I didn't want to make the weekly commitment which the previous game had required. Instead, participants had to predict the finishing positions and an ingenious scoring method was used to determine the most accurate predictor. Clearly, the scoring method needs fine tuning at the moment because I'm trailing Tiddles by 5.

Feel free to have a go, it's never too late - although you may be excluded from winning first prize.
