Lamela in the spotlight again.

Keep rolling them dice Danny boy.
Our number is bound to come up sooner or later.

 Christmas Evening 2013.
.
A Lamela Christmas  ... A Fairy Tale In Argentina and North London.
.
Rather fairy tales and Christmas carols than the nightmare of just lately. Searching for positives through a Christmas mist of disillusionment has been difficult.
.
It started with Liverpool, accelerated through the Andre dismissal (or was it his decision to go),was compounded by the Ham Cup fiasco and culminated in the longer term appointment of Tim Sherwood.
.
It is still slow motion at our pub. Dodging Christmas jibes from condescending Arsenal elves and coming to terms with a season that promises .... what.
.
Lovely evening at our pub Christmas eve, the flicker of light that was Southampton away and then the old bloke on the sled flies in and all is forgotten. Subsumed in an avalanche of food, wine and sheer goodwill.
.
As well it helped to know our pub pin up boy was relaxing like us with family. No fancy night club exploits. The Lamela clan, in as far as our best sources suggest , a lively North London Greek restaurant.

Settling in quite nicely.
.
Not At A Kent Pub.
.
Our mob are on the way back. A rousing victory at the Lane tomorrow might complete the recovery. Probably too soon. We are still coming to terms with Andre going and in the words of a long suffering Blackburn fan who know Tim Sherwood well...
.
 " A complete tosser."
.
Hope not but it's a worry when you are still completing your Coaches badges.
.
Look all is far from lost and in the immortal words of Sir Clement Freud ... a long time Spurs man ...
.
"If you resolve to give up smoking,drinking,and loving Spurs,you don't actually live longer; it just seems longer."

Cheers ... hope springs eternal or is it to dare is to do ... happy Christmas ... Greg Meyer.       coys.

Cheer up it's Xmas. Things can only get better ( or worse, obviously).
