    Maybe it/they is/are. Then eat the fucking things. Don't make wine out of it/them.

      Your tastebuds have clearly been destroyed by you trying too hard to assimilate to your new Northern German identity and eating nothing but pickled herrings. Sure, there is riesling that's utter swill, but riesling makes the best, most interesting, most varied wines. Not enough people in the New World have learned to make a dry riesling, which makes me very sad.

        Exactly. There are several beautiful Sundays in autumn when, instead of chasing 22 psychos around a field with a whistle, I should be out in the Rheingau swilling Riesling and Spätburgunder around my gums. I'm hoping that one day I come to my senses.

          Now, has the AdF been around to you yet to complain about being bloody immigrants?

            No, but they were complaining about German emigrants getting their name wrong.

              Have you considered multitasking? An S Bahn trip after the game? Or a glass or two before, or even during the match?

                  Do you have to surrender your old UK passport?

                    Thanks (to you and everybody else) for the kind words.

                    Yes, it was quite a relief. The extension of the hut's contract may have depended on it. The council more or less said that they don't want non-EU citizens running their gaffs as "there's too much paperwork involved".

                      Yet another consequence of bloody Brexit, I may need to become a foreigner myself.

                        Now I'm being assigned out of town, it's a possibility. Have never touched a drop before or during a game, but my ultimate ambition is to go out in style by getting assigned to a game featuring my least favourite clubs in town, and to show up stoned like it's 1969.

                          British applications for German citizenship increase twelvefold in two years.

                            I picked up my ID card and passport this morning.

                            The Germans, eh? They make such a fuss on the forms about which tribe your parents-in-law belong to and when they got married and whatnot, but when it comes to important stuff, they believe any old shit.

                            When I applied, they asked me how tall I was. I said, "I don't know, about 1.90 m, I suppose." They wrote that down immediately, even though I was sat down at the time. Then "What colour eyes have you got?" My eyes are the same colour as a rancid rollmops but, as that's not an official colour, I said, "Green". There's no way my eyes are green.

                            But now, in my passport, it says I'm 1.90 m tall and have green eyes, and will do for the next ten years.

                            (It also says I was born in Bristol, although I was born in Somerset. They never checked that, either.)

                                    Bloody Germans taking over again.

                                    To return to this subject, I once had a conversation along the following lines:

                                    "So why do Germans get excited about white asparagus, exactly?
                                    "Because it's only available at certain times of the year!
                                    "Yes, like influenza?"

                                      You, imp, Alderman Barnes, Nef, me and probably others I'm unaware of.

                                        Heh, German punctuality. A mere 13 months after being sworn in, I've been invited by Frankfurt mayor Peter Feldmann to attend a ceremony at the Paulskirche next month for an "Einbürgerungsfeier mit anschliessendem Umtrunk". I'm expecting a small glass of Sekt rather than an unlimited selection of draft beers from across the region. But I'm going anyway.

                                          Just as some people in the armed forces get married in uniform, are you going to turn up in your refereeing clobber?
