    What a busy weekend, followed by a great
    game at the Boleyn Ground.
    Thought Deano was unlucky not to have scored. Peter Beardsley was brilliant with his tackling and didn't disgrace himself in goal, either.
    David James made some brilliant saves and Lens Lehmann stopped some briliant shots!
    It was a fun game with the comedians putting on a good display in the second half. I can't believe Russell Howard could play a proper game and who is this guy Lynch! He should haave had a hat trick! The way he just glided round the Germans was awesome!
    Rio and Anton did well and all in all it was a great game.
    Pity they were lining up against ALL ex-players!
