Today I am packing and doing last minute jobs before departing for the guitar-shaped island of Cyprus. We are spending seventeen days at my mate's villa in the hills above Paphos and he will be living in my humble abode in SE7. Seems like a fair deal to me. As a died-in-the-wool Lion, he will be here for the oxymoron that is the Millwall Friendly. I won't miss it, although I am a bit sore that I won't be here for the opening day against the Cherries. I gambled that we would be drawn away on the opening day....nevermind, I am back for the Notts County away game.
