    Yep, having also lived in Aussie and England myself, which I enjoyed for a while, you will soon miss NZ. I remember looking over green hills as I flew towards Auckland airport after 3 years away with "Home Again" from Shihad on the head-phones, swelling with pride for the place. Until then, if you're not enjoying being here for whatever reason Perm, there's no need to **** on the place and it's sports teams

    And no, Perm and Fiery will never, ever come close to hating each other like I hate that-'un.

    Might do against 3 of the 4. Can't see them having any problems with Harmison, and they've got some scores to settle there too. Their only encounter with Harmison to date certainly made him look good.

    Haha! Through another kind of bizarre coincidence with songs playing whilst landing at Auckland Airport, the last time I flew back from the UK I had the sound of Dave Dobbyn's "Welcome Home" as I caught my first glance of New Zealand in 3 and a half years....

    Had always thought "Welcome Home" was an Osibisa song, TBH.

    Sounds like we've lived parallel lives Heath (apart from the international cricketing fame)

    Probably is. I'm sure there's more than one song named "Welcome Home" going around

    It does appear so.... A bit worrying at times when you say you've done something and I've done pretty much the same... Could be that we've just been doing standard things that Kiwis do... or alternatively that we're just very similar.

    And Richard, I would think there could be more than one song called "Welcome Home"

    There was that one that was used in that Gary Lineker "Walkers Crisps" advert, for example.

    In fact, there's probably about 188.

    And there've been so many songs that have been used in Linekar-Walkers conventions I can't possibly remember more than the 2 or 3 most recent ones.

    Maybe we need to have a Battle of the "Welcome Home" Songs. Any takers?

    Sure Martyn (GIMH) would take it up every time, TBH.

    I'd vote Osibisa, of course... if I ever did this "Battle Of" nonsense.

    C'mon Richard. As Keith Barrett would say... "it's a bit of fun"

    You notice how not in so much as one single thread have I said "this is crap"? (And there have been just a few to offer the opportunity)

    I just leave them to run their course, but I've never contributed so much as once.
