How Good Was That!

Tuesday, 30 August 2005

This is the title of an email that was sent by a fellow Saints supporter Jim, and it was an amazing game, bloody good!

The Saints have made the top four! I had a poll on this web site, 7 to 1 said the saints wouldn’t make the top four! And I was the only one!

The Saints now face Adelaide Crows in the first final in Adelaide. With 100% effort from 100% of the team for 100% of the time and we will win this match, this is the what the team strive for and they got very close last weekend against Brisbane.

Chris (my brother) is hoping to get to the game next Saturday. Hope you have a great time Chris.

We will be listening to the game here in the UK, if you listen hard enough you might be able to hear us!

Hope you’re well. xoxo Ali

Its true, even now as I write this it is grey, with a hint of blue.

In Rome we managed to get to the places we haven’t seen… Continue reading
