Would have thought the foster home you stayed in would have been detached?

And a reminder that only 5/6 years ago we were in the same league as PNE!

Fortunes have been somewhat different between the 2 clubs since then. (Sadly)

Hahaha, yes on that day I had not long been out of a relationship and a Town win was my only real hope of perspective, to salvage something positive at that moment (how silly to put all my faith in a Town win at the new Wembley, third time of asking?!). Alas I remember it for more reasons than just the absolute no show.

I got the National Express down from my way to Golders Green, I met a guy from Chechnya that worked at the Station and was the most helpful person I had met in a long time. He was busy but was grateful for 5 minutes of conversation. I asked him how he came to London and in the leafy area of Golders. Aged about mid 40's his story was through tragedy and the First Chechen War. Much of his family were killed but he managed to get his wife evacuated. He said he had no say in fighting and saw things he can never unsee. When the conflict ended in '96 he managed to come to England, after displacement. Along with his wife and after much, much time they were granted asylum (although Chechnya was deemed in ceasefire it was still considered a war zone) and in time they were granted citizenship. He said, if he never had the opportunity to gain asylum he would be dead today.

 The thing that struck me the most was, how thankful he was to be living here, to have  an opportunity to build a life. He was happy to be able to just breathe the air as a free man without having his whole life blown into pieces. He said he gets annoyed like most people but he never moans about having to work too long (his shift that day, if I remember was 8am -10pm). Simply because he is alive. I asked him 'Would you ever go back, if circumstances allowed?' and he said with passion 'No, I miss it, I miss my family everyday and I miss what it was like before the wars started (and then he had this genuine big smile) but I am British, to me this country gave me a chance to live and for me, I am proud to be a British man.'

I know I've warbled on but it was such a refreshing change to hear such positive stuff. Even after the match I saw him again and we had another brief chat (about the game, how crap we played and when he was finishing work). So yes, I remember that day but I remember this man fondly and it's that kind of perspective we need to have at times.

I enjoyed reading that bamboo, it certainly puts losing a football match into perspective. Thanks for sharing.

No problem BO, a pleasure. I'm of the opinion that this is the kind of thing we should be proud of as British people. Giving someone the chance to live and build something from pretty much nothing via no true fault of their own. That should make us petty damn chuffed. That a person would want to come and live here in our country and become a British Citizen. Give up everything they have known and be proud to be here. That makes me think 'Wow, our country is a great place. It offers so much opportunity. We have systems in place if the shit hits the fan' It's all relative I know but that relativity gives us the very perspective too. We need to be more proud.

What's the saying 'First you must be at one with yourself, before you can be at one with others.' or something like that. Anyway I'll stop before I get called a hippy.  Cheesy
