Last Sunday saw the Mills family visit the Suncorp Stadium for the 1st. time to see Queensland Roar take on Sydney in a 2nd. v 3rd spot fixture. Both teams needed the points as the top two will play in the Asian Champions League. Not Quite the European Champions league, infact its more like the county cup! Still we had a great time and at only $73.00 for the four of us including transport to the ground and back home turned out to be fantastic value.
The experience is nothing like going to a game in the uk. For a start off the police couldn't take the shoe laces out of the visiting fans shoes and boots like they used to in the 70's as everyone had flip flops on!! Infact it was nothing like it at all come to think of it. With no sign of aggression amongst supporters the only bad language we heard was when the chip I put in my mouth at half time was a bit too hot. Its nice to be able to have a cold beer on the terraces like we used to back home as well. It must have been ridiculously hot for the players as we were sweating like a pork pie at a Jewish wedding just sat watching it. Juninio the ex. Middlesborough forward turned out for Sydney, it was a good job I bought a program though as i would not have recognised him. It appears the world cup winner has taken to pies since his arrival down under. Micheal Bridges ex. Leeds United also turned out for Sydney but was about as deadly for Sydney as he was during his spell for Leeds, as the game ended up in a one all bore draw. All in all we had a great night and I can't say I missed the long walk up Wesley Street in the rain, moaning about the chances Leeds missed and why we sold Eric to the Scum!! But then again maybe I do?................No only Joking, come on the Roar!!!!!!!

Wednesday 2nd January saw us saying goodbye to our visitors from the U.K. It really was fantastic to see them and so sad to see them go. We all left the airport in pieces. I think it dawned on all of us just how far away we are from you all. If we had had tickets I think we would have been on the plane back with them given the chance. Australia is a beautiful country which would only be bettered if we had our family and friends here with us. Unfortunatly in life you can't have everything. So don't forget about us and remember anytime you want to visit we would be glad of the company. Anyway here's a few photo's of happier times when they were with us. Thanks for the visit Dami, Louise, Joe and Em. We know it wasn't cheap, but we hope it was worth it. XXXX
