Default Re: Beer fight in Basel

Carlsberg isn't that bad really, if that's what you happen to like...

No seriously, I don't have an issue with Carlsberg per se, but I do object to being told what kind of beer I should drink. Its the element of coercion that rankles, advertising with a sledge hammer. So my gut reaction is to not ever drink Carlsberg again... that'll teach them!

I think I'm going to support the Russians now, they seem to be playing a good game and I like it when they have younger not so well known players on the team.

Don't like the Turks since that turn in they had with the Swiss team in Turkey a while back - and I think their trainer is way to agressive. But it is impressive how they've managed to turn two (was it?) matches right round in their favour.

Is that a Swiss independence streak we're hearing?
