The second Swengland trip is well under way as I write this.Managers Richardson and Strohmeier whose teams are currently neck and neck at the top of the Premier, have finally, following the trials and tribulations of August's failed attempt to travel here, made it to Goteborg. Ryan Air of course, through their useless website, tried their best to prevent us but we made it nevertheless. But it seems the Marsupials manager wanted to make the trip even more exciting by having an early morning encounter with the local Polis. Luckily for him the officers in question were in his words 'a couple of crackers' However it was him they regarded as crackers as he climbed the hill opposite Rustan's apartment block in the vain hope he could identify the apartment by looking through the window. Unfortunately this was a misguided tactic:
The previous night we had been prevented from going to our local and favourite music bar(KoM Bar) by the said Polis department due to a suspected suicide bomber standing at a nearby tram stop. The bomber situation lasted all night and was only cleared away this morning. I imagine the local residents were still jumpy from the previous evening when they saw a lone, hatted figure climbing the slope opposite Rustan's flats. The figure then proceeded to peer towards the windows. This, combined with the fact that Rustan and other residents had their flats broken into in the summer caused one of the residents to call the Polis. Strohmeier was then apprehended and asked to prove his identity. Interestingly, his tactic should have worked, as he was hoping that one of us would have seen him from Rustan's flat. Indeed Rustan and Andy had seen the incident, and had remarked that there was some Polis activity opposite and it looked as if 'a drug addict was being arrestsed'. Little did they realise who 'the addict' was. Anyway, alls well that ends well and thanks to the help of a little old lady who suggested reading the name plates on the apartment main doors, Strohmeier was united with his breakfast which is what he was really searching for."
