Good evening all.
As it is late here on Xmas Eve, I felt it prudent to just take a minute to spare a thought for those who won't be spending their Xmas at home.
Yes, let's take a minute to thank those who forego the beautiful white scenery of England this Christmas so that they can fight for their country.
These men will spend the holidays in the most despicable corners of the globe and while you are tucking into your Roast Turkey, they will be sleeping, ready for battle the next day.
Remember that they are fighting for the greater cause; they are fighting the causes of evil.
Merry Christmas to them.
That's right, this Christmas get behind Andrew Strauss and the boys and come Thursday, we will see this, once again:
Merry Xmas to all of you
