Blueandy, I can assure you that I had no idea who was involved in whatever happened at the asian sr, and as such did not simply post on here to remain annonymous. there are enough people on here, including podgey george, who know what i look like, so this would not have worked......
Well I will be out in India for the world cup, and ill be sat with a few other england fans, but a good distance away from the barmy army, although i feel that they will not be in high numbers at the world cup, and i will wear a "I AM THE EGGMANFOO FINGER POINTER", so come over and have a chat.....
To save everyone the pain, I wont repeat any of what I have said previously, but i do not think i am totally wrong and unjustified.......i just know how to behave, and like to express my views a little too strongly

We are all different but we come together for the cricket. I think the diversity of us all is a good thing. You think you know how to behave yourself well fair enough according to YOU that may be the case but don't try and give me your holier-than-thou bullshit because I have my own brand thank you very much, Jesus.

If you don't like being under the banner of the barmy army then fair enough that's up to you. Personally I think the name describes a type of England/Wales cricket supporter who gets behind the team visually and vocally, not one which sits quietly in the stands, and the players enjoy this type of support and show their appreciation for it too.

Barmy Army ££££ is of course a brand too and a very popular one since 1995. You don't have to wear the shirt to be barmy though do you?

Will you be about at any of the home Tests this summer Mr Foo?

Mr Barlnsley, alas I will only be at Trent Bridge for the Pakistan test, and maybe the desh one dayer, depending on how cheap i can get a ticket.......I prefer to use my money to tour certain countries with england, where i can get a different kind of cricketing experience, and where there is more value for money......I spent in 3 and 1/2 weeks in the desh the equivalent of what 5 days at trent bridge would cost me....and i am not a fan of the sitting in your allocated seat, and i do like to meet the locals in these countires to try and enrich my whole experience......
If this is some veiled attempt to show that i am not a die hard cricket fan, then you really do not hit the mark. I will never profess to be a massive cricket fan who attends every game or series, I will not be in oz as it is simply not value for money, and i have spent a year out there before, i am simply a person who loves to support england abroad, depending on the tour, and who loves visiting diverse countries.......
Oh, and, I certainly will never profess to be holier than though, i just feel that the experience and memory i leave with residents in such countries is a very positive one, and that i will be remembered for the right reasons.......
Anyone else???????????????

Oh and check out exit calm, a barnsley band that are destined for big things....

Hey calm down Mr Foo not a trap nor a challenge.

I will hopefully be at Trent Bridge Test too with the Nervous one as are several other very wrong types from the sarf who have all just been to and left their mark, positively, in the Desh. It could be very messy indeed.

Yes Exit Calm good, a bit like 1989 all over again. Will have to dig out my flares. My God 20 years? Anyway a bit too melodic for me. I can make out tunes and hear the words, what's all that about? Maybe I'll just leaflet their gigs. Up the workers!

I would suggest, and have done, that the Asian SR reception area shouldn't have been turned into a bar in the first place.
Thus there would not have been any handbags at all.



EH? some of us like to drink in decent surroundings if at all possible

Not in smoky dingy dark surroundings where you couldnt get yer breath, the kitchens were deplorable and the memories of 5 cows gettin slaughtered outside the establishment lingered on

The formation of the Asian SR bar was beneficial for everybody both us and the Bangas

as was the Grand Prince...
Ill forward you the thank you e mails off the mangagements
EFM I will reply in greater detail when I av a little time on my hands and its not costing me


I've no doubt that you have many letters of thanks George. That's not the point. There's no need to forward them.
The Grand Prince at least was kept away from the general public, and that's fine. I did have a few there and it was good and I thank you for that. The SR however was a little too blatent frankly, so you didn't find me in there at all. We saw some quite appalled Bangladeshi women who were staying there. It could have beenb done more discretely.
Each to their own, if you want to take good old England away with you everywhere you go, fair play. Good luck to you.
Don't slag off the local establishments though. They were good to us and an enjoyable expierience for those bothered to leave their "western" environments.
As for the memories of cows being slaughtered, well that was a festival held in the same place on the same Friday every year.
I didn't want to see it either, but it's the local culture and at least I didn't get polo shirts printed about it!
You did a good job for many folks, so fair enough.
Not going to fall out with you over this but you're always telling people to get a life.
Pot, kettle, black.

You obviously didn't have the misfortune to witness the aftermath of any road accidents whilst in Chittagong then!
Mob rule rules OK...

I liked Nightingales and I liked the Grand Prince.

I spent some time in the hotel pool, I spent some time exploring Dhaka and the Old Town.

I like wearing Barmy Army shirts, I like wearing Corridor shirts.

I like sitting with everyone together on tour.

Does it really have to be so complicated?
