I like football, but I find F1 racing as boring as watching concrete set. I understand that others are extremely interested in it however, and I respect the fact.
Let's try to avoid these endless 'Who is Wayne Rooney?' type comments every time the subject crops up. Asking 'Who?' in this context gives the game away - you know perfectly well who Wayne Rooney is. if you don't you must have been living in a hole in the ground for the last ten years.
Morddwyd. I am glad someone read what I wrote. I was quoting what the BBC said, I heard it twice I didn't read it. It was probably a wrong report, but wouldn't have surprised me. So FE I find your comments rather rude, if I or someone else said you had been living in a hole in the ground you would not be pleased.
