I could agree with you...but then we'd both be wrong.

I Think they might employ a shrink just to check your sanity of actually going to such a horrible little ground as Franklin gardens. Poor and Expensive parking, rotten pies and just a passable beer. No I shall watch it on the tele scoffing a Melton Mowbray pork pie together with a pint of Everards.

We've had this in place across the Pennines to stop the Yorkies getting in for quite some time now

Don't know about a passport, but I always checked my inoculations were up to date before passing through Market Harborough.................. :smt004

You see we have a bigger deterrent to crossing that border and we call it sense. :smt002

I have a few issues with this and it pains me to say it (currently putting soap on my toothbrush) but I feel you are being ever so slightly harsh (euw this tastes bad).

I have firstly never had to pay for parking. Secondly, I had a very nice lamb pie from the stalls by the Guinness tent last time and the burgers are very good, the beer is also pretty good (often 3 real ales) its just the queues that are the problem to get it.

But it is a small and horrible ground but at least it is a rugby ground and full week in week out unlike so many others. We may just have had a cousin move in to the midlands but sibling rivalry is much more fun.
