Greetings all you crazy FC Berry fans, and a special big Arne stylee hej! to Berryrules from the messageboard. That boy will go far!

Reading through some recent stories on the FC Berry website I am coming across goal machine Matthew Tipton telling us to Lump on at Ladbrokes for him to be FC Berry’s top scorer this season. Now as a self made mega-mogul old Arne knows a sure thing when he sees one. So yesterday I am depositing a tanker load of kroner on our boy at 66/1. Watch those goals pour out of him!!!

I’m noticing that despite last week’s great performance the crowd is being pitifully small. So I’m wondering how this can be improved. And its occurring to me that FC Berry play at the same time as everybody else, which means we have no Unique Selling Point. So Arne is having this brilliant idea! Let’s play our next game on a Sunday afternoon instead of a Saturday. I’m sending my man Lee Burrow into the Manager’s office to have a word with the fellow Kasper

Lee Burrow is telling me that the fantastic performance last Saturday is being due to the brilliant young midfield who the rest of the team are nick-naming The Four Tops. What that’s got to do with this week’s team against FC Peter Burrow, I don’t know



Now I’ve heard of Agger and Downing but who is this Pilko? Is it the fellow who graces the FC Berry message board with his wonderful opinions? And another thing, when will some people on the message board begin to accept that reaching the age of puberty does not automatically grant you the Wisdom of Solomon? As you British like to say, Bah humbugger!!
