Day 201 Final

Jussi and Uno are gloriously drunk. They have those heavy eyelids and greasy lips of of vodka drinkers.

"The Reds will have the edge in the Istanbul, and you know why, I'll tell you why, AC lost Serie A title, rolled over like beaten dogs, surrendered everything to Juventus. You have to fancy Liverpool, really fancy them, cos they are the Reds and the Turkish flag is Red, so you can imagine who the Turks will be supporting. You know that Istanbul comes from the original Greek "eis tin poli" (to the city)"

"Yeah and Milan look jaded physically - and certainly mentally - by losing the Serie A title, so the Reds are on the up, and Milan are on the way down. The space brothers were just saying that the American war against terrorism as a new Crusade against Islam... and Ex-president Bill Clinton has also fingered the Crusades as the root cause of the present world unrest. This is so much more than a football game. It is a fight of red against white, Istanbul against Constantinople, and if you arrange the letters of constantinople you get NIL AC ET NONSTOP which obviously means that AC will score no goals in a nonstop game. I think we should put all our money on a penelty shoot-out at the end of the game."
