    Your right , it wasn't crap , it was fucking awful ..

    Anyway , just finished I Am Zlatan , mad as a box of frogs but a excellent read.
    Arrogant , sarcastic , obnoxious and offensive , anyway , enough about ODM :)
    Lets talk about Zlatan , dunno why , but this country has a downer on poor old Zlats , and when you read his book , it does really piss him off that we ( the UK ) don't appreciate what a genius he is( his words btw )
    I think that's why he wacked four in against England :lol

    A few quotes from Zlats ...

    Reporter: “You’ve got some scars on your face, Zlatan. What has happened?”
    Zlatan: “Well…I don’t know…you’ll have to ask your wife about that”

    We are looking for an apartment (in Paris), if we do not find anything, then we will just buy a hotel." :lol





    “At Barca, players were banned from driving their sports cars to training. I thought this was ridiculous – it was no one’s business what car I drive – so in April, before a match with Almeria, I drove my Ferrari Enzo to work. It caused a scene.”

    Started on a few P J Wodehouse books .
    I must say , they are hilarious , that's the beauty of having a Kindle , i have searched around for authors that i wouldn't normally read , and Wodehouse was a recommendation from a mate , and thanks very much ( Big H ) ..

    A few quotes from his books ...

    “She looked as if she had been poured into her clothes and had forgotten to say "when". ”

    “I always advise people never to give advice.

    “Oh, Jeeves,' I said; 'about that check suit.'
    Yes, sir?'
    Is it really a frost?'
    A trifle too bizarre, sir, in my opinion.'
    But lots of fellows have asked me who my tailor is.'
    Doubtless in order to avoid him, sir.'
    He's supposed to be one of the best men in London.'
    I am saying nothing against his moral character, sir.” :lol

    Nice one Wins. Do you bother with the re-runs of Jeeves and Wooster on Gold with Fry and Laurie. Makes me titter I must admit.
