The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The World Cup Thread

Russian sleeper trains are fine. Just be sure to have plenty of booze and food to last the journey. I suspect it'll mostly be England fans, but if you can, have a few drinks with some Russians. You won't remember much, but it'll seem fun at the time.

My mate and I are actually being hosted by a Russian guy and his wife, and they're taking us out in Moscow on Friday night, so should be plenty of mixing with the locals. To be honest going to semi try and avoid all the raucous and drunk England fans, bar the day of the game where I intend to have my top off and a pint of Fosters in my hand like the rest of them haha ;-)

Fly Thursday morning. 7am. Not looking forward to the taxi arriving at 4:45am to take me to Heathrow. Or the sleeper train to Nzivny-Novgorod on Saturday night.

Southgate - Will do !

I'm mainly called tricky, or tricks, ( or trixiebelle by the idiot Scotsmen ). I find being called Paul confusing in a football context.  I hated my name when I was young because it couldn't be shortened, which is one reason my parents choose it. I wanted to be a 'Dave' after the star of the public service beach cartoon.

A names a label. Once I worked out there weren't enough names to go around all actual people I didn't bother so much.  It's not my name. It's shared.  A very different thing. I don't much care what arbitrary label I'm assigned as long as I can work out when someone is trying to attract my attention. Which they mainly do by calling me c*nt.

I have a couple of context sensitive nicknames, even my parents often call me my brothers name by accident. That Paul personality that I started with is just the Base Layer on which the other multiple personality (disorders) are built.
