And found dens in the woods...
Tree climbing
Nearly at the top.  This is just before they lost the football in a massive bramble bush!

Man City and Pompey Trip

Me and Joe did a football tour to Manchester this weekend.  First was Man City v Bournemouth: 
Watching the players warming up...
About a zillion pounds worth of talent...
Pep looks a bit worried...
The game is tight in the first half...come on City :-)
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw9TJJoC0jc&feature=youtu.be
The score is 1 v 1 at half-time, but Man City go on to win 3 v 1.  This is Raheem Sterling's goal...
Pep was stressing until the last ball was kicked...
Joe chilling out in the B and B with 'Friends' on the ipad...
Next day it was Rochdale v Pompey in the 2nd Round of the FA Cup....
My Ball!!!  Oliver Hawkins...
The game was close and looked like being 0 v 0...
But Pompey scored in the last minute!!!  1 v 0 to Pompey and into the third round of the cup.
Great footballing weekend :-)
