ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL

This Sunday it is the battle of the reds in the English Premier League.  Liverpool take on Manchester United at Anfield.  The game kicks off at 9:00pm Thai time and it will be shown live in the Bull’s Head Pub located opposite Emporium Shopping Centre in Sukhumvit Soi 33/1.  The Bull’s Head is just one of many pubs across Thailand that will definitely be showing this footy match.  I’m sure many of us eagerly await this clash of the red titans…

Daves Raves – Spain Win Euro 2008

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Spain have defeated Germany 1-0 in the Euro 2008 Cup Final.  Liverpool’s superstar striker Fernando Torres, scored the goal that yet again breaks the hearts of the Germans.  The vast majority feel that Spain are deserved winners.  Actually, I predicted Spain to do very well at the beginning of the tournament, and they did.  There has been some excellent attacking football throughout the Euro 2008 Tournament.  Furthermore, it has been an unpredictable and exciting football tournament.  Congratulations to Spain.

GOOD NEWS FOR A BOOZE CRUISE

Tiger Beer In ThailandFollowing the recent dry spell across Thailand, we are now green for go!  Tonight marks the return of alcohol and more importantly the tourist areas can open their bars.  Pattaya Police in particular, took harsh measures by immediately closing any go-go bar that attempted to open on Friday night.  As one established Pattaya go-go bar owner said to me, “The Pattaya go-go bar owners will lose five nights takings this December.”  This is a crushing blow to some bars in Pattaya that are quite clearly struggling.  Not to mention all the poor farangs who have flown across the world to party in Thailand.  Anyway, the bars right across Thailand will be open and serving alcohol from tonight (December 16th).  All together now lads, “HOORAY!” 

There is a catch to this though.  Officially speaking, alcohol is NOT supposed to be served until 10:00pm tonight.  Let us hope that the boys in brown will let the “booze cruise” kick off earlier at around 9:00pm.

REMINDER FOR DECEMBER 22nd AND DECEMBER 23rd

Angelwitch Go-Go Bar - Nana Plaza - ThailandSorry to say that next week on December 22nd and December 23rd, these are most likely to be “NO ALCOHOL” nights.  December 23rd is the BIG ONE because this is the day of the Thai Elections.  Thank the Lord when all this nonsense is over!  As you know, millions of people from all corners of the globe fly to Thailand.  Not surprisingly, all of us farangs are totally baffled, because we know we cannot vote.  Furthermore, most of us would have no intentions to vote even if we could.  Why should Westerners have to suffer the ban on alcohol?  The Thai authorities really dropped a clanger this year. 

BATTLE OF THE TITANS

Moving on to a much more exciting subject than politics; tonight there are two HUGE English Premier League football matches.  It is the Battle Of The Titans!  The mighty reds both face off in another epic encounter, as the English Premiership Champions Manchester United take on Liverpool at Anfield.  Meanwhile in the capital there is a London derby match where Premier League leaders Arsenal host Chelsea.  Both of these matches have the potential to be full of end-to-end electrifying action…
