    Will be there with bells on. :)

    (I've always wondered what that means... perhaps, while in Britain, I can find a Morris dancer to explain)

    Good food? Now this thread is becoming interesting!! :cool:

    I would be very grateful if any All England veterans would list any favourite places to find cheap,good food around the NIA. (I will have with me two hungry boys and a very weak Canadian dollar. :eek:)

    I think he is insinuating that you're going to be doing a lot of sitting on uncomfortable chairs and that it might take its toll on your nether regions :)

    Brindley Place is where all the restaurants are .... If you google maps it you should see all the various options .. I dunno about cheap though :)

    I particularly like Le Monde when I was there last year http://www.le-mondebirmingham.co.uk/

    Thanks for the tip! :). Lemonde looks really nice for at least one meal. But I suspect that most days we'll be making peanut butter sandwiches in our hotel room to stay on budget. :rolleyes:

    The GB pound has dropped about 2% against the Canadian Dollar in the last month and still seems on a downward trend ... you might be able to afford 2 meals at Le Monde if you send the boys out to McDs ;)

    Enjoy your time there....

    Two players I recommend,you should definitely be looking forward to watch them

    Lin Dan - a 33 year old leftie

    Kento Momota - a 21 year old leftie.

    Cheers

    No problem.True talents are hidden gem in most cases.

    He is a good player with a decent footwork,alright smash and can do few things here and there at the net too.
