Stupid post ?..Sort it out FFS..
Its a fuckin Joke and does not in any way Interfere with any Legal case..
Has Adman replied to it in any way..No he hasn't..So he is not Implicated in anything..It Is My Joke and you are making something out of nothing..as fuckin usual.
You want to be as fuckin quick off the mark Awayo with all the snidey comments directed at Accy Matalan or whatever his name is..
Or Is he another you would rather not have on your fuckin snobby stuck up Forum...I'll leave here when I want to..And not because YOU or anyone else wants to get shut of certain people because you reckon this is a bit of an Elitist Liverpool Group..Ive said it before mate.and I'll say it again in case you missed it..I put photos on here for the same people to comment on..I will leave this Forum when these people stop commenting on my pics..
The Quicker you realise that the Quicker you will understand that your little digs at having a go at me go in one ear and straight out the other..
OK...Happy New Year.

Why are you narked with me? What have I done to upset you? Who has Noddy Holder sideburns nowadays?
Gerard was obviously having a laugh. I know you can't accept this, but I've gone past caring and any of your replies will go unanswered. It's just so silly

No need to apologise mate. Any fool knew you were having a laugh. If anyone needs to apologise it's Awayo for not knowing anyone has Noddy Holder sideburns to pull anymore. "Noddy Holder sidey's"

Actually Awayo, you don't need to aplologise, because it's pathetic. If you want to hijack a post to have a pop at Ged, do it somewhere else please.

Or how about starting a post of your own to have a go at him? Much simpler mate. Lance the boil and get it over with.

Thanks Ads. I'd rather not start a thread right now on it. My reply weren't having a go with you, in fact I was agreeing with your pisstake of my grammatical pretensions, whilst sticking with my ticking off of Ged - clearly a nice man - hence my sharpness.

Anyways, I gave Ged some advice in response to what I thought was a badly judged post. Ged is right to disagree. He has responded as it happens.

And I disagree with his response, of course.

Okay, thought it might be recent. She isn't on the schedule here (Cayman) any more, presumed she'd been retired then saw the photo.

No, she employs on an eastern Med itinerary in summer (April-November) and South America in the winter. She was cruising the British Isles when she was first launched in 1996 and had a very interesting repositioning itinerary. She left Southampton for Boston via Cork, Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, Lerwick and Reykjavik.

Cheers

Thanks for posting that Kenny, i love seeing the ACL's at Seaforth so i like the comment about the 'ACL waltz'.

My Grandad used to pick me and my Brother up every Sunday to drive us to their house, for years i thought he lived miles away because we always went via the docks, i remember some big chimneys, three sisters or something....anyway it wasn't until i was allowed out on my own that i found out that they lived around the corner, literally 2 minutes away!!

Kenny, this site is bringing back so many memories for me, i used to live in a flat with a balcony overlooking the Mersey, i used to love watching the big tankers coming to Shell, i was always amazed watching the tugs doing the 'push/pull' to turn the big buggers around, i now live in Childwall over looking a school
