Originally posted by Shallow BlueCruyff certainly has a point and is not hard to follow at all with statements like this: 'When you've got the ball, they can not score.'

Originally posted by trev33Not all that old, but imprimis I have a penchant for literature well before Dickens (my favourite being the late mediaeval period); secundis, I do not think it harms anyone to be exposed to more involved language than one normally hears from the boob tube; and tertiis, I do enjoy exuding a pretense(!) to culture.
