I think he was on about Harry. But just to answer youre question, nope, i'm too homophobic to be gay.
Which makes me want to ask the following questions:

Can a gay man be homophobic? And is there such a thing as hetrophobic?

CH, course a gay man can be homophobic. We've all heard of those denial stories on Gerry Springer and stuff. Just comes down to which sex you find attractive. Must be a mental thing if a gay man is homophobic (American Beauty the film is a good example of the gay man being homophobic thing).

As for Hetrophobic, i'd reckon so, but then they'd be scared of opposite sex relationships which would be another mental conditioning thing. Which might be a good reason for all those really really camp annoying people that hang around with a lot of females but never end up pulling.

Thank you again Sir, your knowledge and insight are a credit to you. However, I doubt even one as erudite as yourself could provide an adequate answer to this.

Why is a friendly match between England and Argentina actually being played in, of all places, Geneva?

Because it is the headquarters of the International Red Cross?

I heard it was a dry run for Euro 2008 when Austria & Switzerland will be joint hosts. It will allow them to test their security and other measures. Not that the Argies will be around for the real thing of course.

Cheers Trev, though I wouldn't have thought that there'd be many Argies around this afternoon either! :conf:

I guess also from the Argentian team perspective it would also be some form of a dry run for the World Cup to be held in neighbouring Germany starting 9th June, next summer.

It was meant to be an argentine home game but they figured most of their players play in europe - so found geneva willing for the above reasons

Most of the Argentinian Contingent all play in Europe (as do the whole England squad), with only about three players only coming from South America. Therefore, it was felt that, rather than fly a 30 odd of the most expensive footballers in the World all the way to Argentina it would be better to play in a neutral location. I think quite a few of the Clubs may have argued this point.

Bruce, England vs. Argentina wanted a nice game where they wouldn't get kicked out of the competition for fighting, crowd trouble, etc. Where better to host it than one of the most neutral places on the planet.

I'd say you were right, Bench.

Australia plays many of its friendly matches in Europe (or the U.K. if you want to be parochial) rather than the team and their opposition lugging themselves down here - which is not only tiring but also expensive. The reason is, as you point out, that most of the players compete either on the Continent or the Sceptred Isle.

Lol, not a problem. I don't mind a difference in opinion but Bench's explanation explains the reasoning behind playing it on English or Argentinian soil rather than why its actually being played in Geneva. But in case you're wondering, it was still a better explanation than mine. Damm you bench!

At The End of My Tether means I am at the very limit of my patience and self-control. In the middle ages a grazing animal would often be tethered to a post, ensuring it didn't stray beyond a certain small area. But once the animal arrived at the limit of its tether, unable to quite reach pastures new, it would become frustrated, irritable and sometimes traumatised to the point of despair. Sound familiar?
