  1. Glad we didn't take Barton, he would disrupt the team too much which would outweigh the benefits.
  2. Agree, would have liked to have seen a big name signing for midfield and a new back up goalie also but perhaps in Jan? Finally good to see the cash being spent even if seemingly under duress. Not sure how the team balance will go but the defence looks better.
  3. I thought it was time to update the above to reflect developments of the last 6 months as a couple of exts have advanced. Remember, the latest network map is linked earlier. MOT has said they are reviewing plans to ensure all is in accordance with their election network policy but the reality the new govt. will prioritise lines which will increase property prices in areas where their members have financial interests. A) Current lines under construction; 1) SRT Red Line from Bang Sue to Taling Chan (est open now late 2012) 2) BTS ext from Wong Wian Yai to Bang Wah (Dec 2012) 3) MRTA Purple Line from Taopoon to Bang Yai (opens early 2014) 4) MRT Blue Line ring ext (subway) and Bang Khae/Phetkasem rd ext (preliminary works started June. Completion 2016) B ) Lines tendered and contact to be signed 5) BTS Bearing to Paknam ext (awarded, contract to be signed, work expected to start Oct 11) C) Lines with a delayed tender 6) SRT Red Line from Bang Sue to Rangsit 6a) New Intercity terminal at Bang Sue for all N, NE & S intercity trains, D) Lines reportedly close to tender; 7) MRT Subway Blue Line ext from Bang Sue to Taopoon (1 station) - to interchange with the Purple line when it opens, E) Lines which have disappeared into a Thai policy vortex of confusion; 8) BTS Mo Chit to Saphan Mai ext (expected to be tendered next year but that has been said for the last 5 yrs. Original completion date was 2008), F) Next batch of lines: 9) Orange Line - at advanced planning and new priority due to HM's intervention. May be tendered 2012 10) Pink Line (mono-rail!) - considered a priority due to new Government Complex. Expect tender late 2012/early 2013. Sanity may prevail and it may become a heavy rail metro line. 11) Yellow Line G) Thereafter: 12) Purple Line ext south, 13) Red Line from Bang Sue to Hualumphong to Mahachai 14) Airport Line from Phayathai to Bangsue to Don Meung (DMK) 15) BTS ext from Saphan Mai to Lam Lukka 16) Line 11 and line 12???? H) Monorail: I didn't mention it before but the BMA has plans for 10 monorail feeder lines but to be frank most seem unlikely to advance. The reality is that a couple of monorail firms have been courting decision makers in the last few years pushing monorail projects for BKK. Hopefully most will not see the light of day.
  4. Very strange that Ciaran has seemingly not been so active on TF in the last week. I wonder why..............?
  5. So Ciaran.........opened yesterday na. Wanna take me out on a date and load me up with booze in the next few weeks? (I'll even put on some lippy and a nice frock!)
  6. I get the idea but this is still TF right? Since when have you ever tried to ensure that a member adheres to the basis of a thread topic?
  7. Parents, don't let this guy take your daughter to Bed for a Confidential Sunday! (This could be an ad for a stranger danger campaign......)
  8. Not a fat **** anymore it seems, http://www.theage.com.au/executive-style/waxwork-warnie-whipped-into-shape--but-not-by-liz-20110805-1ie70.html
  9. "White skin natives"??? "destruction of indigenous way of life"? "Act of treason"? What is this "indigenous way of life" that you refer to? Eating **** food, incessantly talking about the weather and being a football yob? Does that characterisation sound nicely superficial enough? I was under the impression thought that the only indigenous people in the UK were some Welsh, Scots, Cornish and Irish? Are not most english "white skin natives" descended from german immigrant tribes (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-396406/Were-Germans--1-600-years.html), and Viking & Normans invaders?
  10. Are you sure??? Open means carrying pax for normal scheduled services. BTS is currently running trains on the ext without pax. I'd be highly surprised if the BMA and BTS would open it a week early given the importance of the 12th. Let's say if you are incorrect, then you owe Ciaran and I, 3 lots of 3 towers of beer watching the Gunners play your team at TD2? Sound good?
  11. I'm with Danno....you should have called titled the thread Euro gps for WC 2014. 3 of the Asian gps are a quiet interesting as well. One thing for certain, Thailand yet again will fail to qualify past their group to the next stage of qualification. Thailand should just apply to play in the South American group where you get a 50% chance of qualifying.
  12. You did that last year and it didn't help you then.
  13. Apols for the late reply K. Kus. Don't know about that. Grimm were involved in the construction of the line as a consultant, not aware of their involvement since the line became operational. The line is run by an SRT subsidiary, SRTET (the creatively inspired name being SRT Electric Train co.), which has then contracted an operator to run it. Previously, it was a DB (German national train carrier) subsidiary but they chose not to renew and currently the operator is the same Malaysian company which operates the KL Airport Express line.
