too many matches

Freiheitsweg was Regionialliga venue in the late 1990s. The sweet smell comes from a chocolate factory in Wittenau, some say.

The problem is this inflation of qualification matches in Europe, the the FA invited to join UEFA will be Kosovo soon. Will Mr. Platini ever scrap the format the World Cup/European Championship qualifiers are beeing played?

As the stones said..

"baby, youre out of time".. Well, as much as i like to be called baby, its not that likely it was aimed at me, but this was written, obviously, yesterday before the friendlies took place. A technological error meant we have only just been able to post it. It was obvioulsy also before Zlatan decided to make my words about boring friendlies about as prescient as a Joe Hart headed clearance from outside the box. Still, at
