I was only joking about that. That's why I put that face there. Not that I like everyone in here, but I'm not a violent person. I have punched a few old ladies in the supermarket sometimes but that's as far as I go with violence.

Thanks! I feel the same way.
My problem is not the flying so much as the traveling. I hate traveling. I can't go for a trip longer than 2 hours if I'm not driving. If I am the driver 4 hours is my maximum.
Seriously, I've turned down great offers for vacation abroad, greek islands (that are considered top destinations for some weird reason), and other faraway destinations. I'm the classic person who invites people over instead of going out, miss out on parties or gatherings just because they are held in places where it's difficult to find a parking spot etc. Some people called me "γεροπαράξενο" which translated freely means weird old person. Geezer might be the closest english word.

Greece as a meeting place might not be a best choice, because it's far away from the center point of Europe. English, German, Goblin-kings, Dutch, French and others would have trouble going that far. Plus it can get super hot in the summertime, although Athens is pretty empty in the summer, almost children-free so it's a great place to be and relax.

Well, me giving away that much it boils down to one of five teams right now, which makes me one of a choice of around 100 or 110 players.
Anyway, I wish the rest of the team good luck avoiding relegation. I'm out with a hamstring injury and "can't help the team"*. my new contract doesn't hold for 2. Bundesliga, luckily, maybe I can play where I belong then. Real, ManU, Hoffenheim, or, say, Olympiakos. I'd totally sign that last one, to visit you, Tasoe, from the outskirts of Athens and lift a good brew if there is such a thing in Greece. Is there? If not, it might make me sign for United, after all.

Big Bene, If you need work doing around the place then I might be able to help out and do somethings for you, and it would make me feel better about pulling my weight to help out. Just an Idea.

That looks like a language from some alien world. It looks like it's pronounced yeponapakevo but I bet it isn't. How close was I?

I've heard that, it's the only thing that puts me off because I'd like to go. I can't take mega heat.

It's sounds like:
γεροπαράξενο
yeroparakseno

lol, I am still laughing... I know tasoe, he is a cool guy. But if it's true about traveling he is γεροπαράξενο for sure.

Not close then? It's still nothing compared to Welsh. Welcome to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

:shock: I love the way it's spelt phonetically (in Welsh) underneath because even they can't pronounce it. No place name sign should need five poles to hold it up! Wales is a silly place.

Is it the name of that park behind it? Does it translate into something with meaning?

Well, no danger with me. I would not recognize any active football player by face. It's probably the least interesting thing to me. Good you're also a HQ player. |_P
Have a look ;)

"Saint Mary's Church in a hollow of white hazel near the swirling whirlpool of the church of Saint Tysilio with a red cave"
It's the name of the village.
According to Wiki, it's only the second longest placename in the world :o


Back to topic:
Interested members so far:
- Anderas
- Goblin-King
- Baylor_OgreBane

The following members would perhaps be interested, but have some issue, that I still hope we can sort out somehow:
- tasoe
- Gold Bearer
- knightkrawler

I just did a quick optical search on the thread. Hope I didn't overlook someone.
Have a look ;)
