that statue is quite something - it's like one of those frozen body artworks. Do you know how old it is?


It is a 16th-century statue of St. Bartholomew with his skin thrown over his shoulder like a cloak. (According to tradition, he was martyred by being flayed alive.)

Great photos, Colston. It looks like you had fun in spite of those 36 mins. I really liked Milan...

Regarding todays match up...I thought that there was something in sports called "the home field advantage"....No? Oh, my bad...

Those were the transfer costs from the airport to Milan's central station.

Tickets were only 18 though. Really good price. We charge 45.

Yeah we had a great time.

Not so yesterday. I can't understand how getting to and from Milan over three days was less tiring than a quick there and back to London yesterday. Was hanging afterwards.

Always thought we would nick one and win it but hey ho... up to third nonetheless.

Much better yesterday... I got arrested on the way to the game so missed it unfortunately. Little disagreement with the Megabus driver.

Had a disagreement with the Megabus driver.

First time I've ever used the useless c**ts. The last time as well it seems as I am now banned.

Booked on 9 a.m. bus which didn't show up.

10.30 a.m. bus does show up and f**king Welsh prick driver (calling him this later was a mistake) says that only people booked on 10.30 a.m. bus can board as their policy is to fit people to bus they are booked on. Don't worry 9.00 a.m. people your bus will be coming at about 11.30 a.m..

Unfortunately this tripped my restrained reasonable Colston wire.. and I shouted a bit at him and suggested I was getting on the bus that was there which I did.

He then refused to drive off and called the Police.

After being persuaded by passengers on the 10.30 that it wasn't their fault and they wanted to leave I got off (maybe 5 mins) and had a conversation witht eh f**king Welsh prick driver where I allegedly called him by his full name. I then sat back down on the wall to wait for the 11.30 bus.

Police then show up lights and sirens flashing. f**king Welsh prick driver didn't see me sit down and he sends them off to chase me. Bless their hearts my fellow 9 o'clockers unasked for stood round me to hide me from the Police.

After another five minutes or so they finally cracked the case and came over to me asking me to get in the back of their car where I was arrested and cautioned and held whilst the bus drove off. annoyed

I was also informed that I was now not able to travel on any Megabus service today or in the future and was told I was to be driven home. They had asked me where I was going and suggested due to my temper and previous record maybe I shouldn't travel to the game today and that they would be back to check later. Bloody Welsh copper. Laughing

Couldn't be bothered to f**k about and argue and drive so put my ticket up for sale... and it didn't...

Oh, poor Colston! A comedy of errors...or thereabouts. Sorry you missed the game. I did as well, but not because I was in the pokey... just a field trip for school, but I was getting updates from my bro. Did you ever find out why the original bus never showed?
