Happy Anniversary Team Romania!
La multi ani Team Romania!
Starts on 28th November.
Interesting, but using a 4 cylinder engine to power a giant hairdryer surely isn't a 'jet'? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Coand%C4%83
Henri Coanda's work on 'lifting bodies' is far more interesting and genuinely unique.
Hahah most probably yes..
ok . i;m sure they were both very good chess players lol
I don't know this in detail but since Coandă-1910 was the world's first jet and Sir Frank Whittle, considered to be the father of jet propulsion, was born in 1907 and had a patent on his design in 1930, it makes sense to me that Henri Coandă invented it. But again, I am not a historian and this is a controversial claim disputed by some and supported by others so it is not relevant for us to discuss on it.
I am sure they both contributed enourmously in this field of science and each of them is considered national pride personalities in our countries.
errrrrrr i don;t want to be a party pooper but didnt Sir Frank Whittle invent the jet engine?
We are not only celebrating our anniversary but also our national day on 1st December!
Anticipating your approval Team England, I will post some posters here for this extraordinary occasion. Thank you for everything!
Happy Birthday Romania!
Yes I can remember Tuffers almost singlehanded bowling Australia out in the second innings of the last test match of the 1997 tour of England. Cometh the hour cometh the Man............................or summit!
Congratulations to Team Romania on your 3rd anniversary !
I will leave other congratulations for later because chess is a funny game, but for our RedKnightskewered - this is more like Tuffers going in at No. 4 to face Glenn McGrath !! Just think of the applause though if he scored a 50 !!
Yesterday Team Romania celebrates 3 years of existence. We are appreciating very much the fact that Team England helped us to start the game on time. MANY THANKS !
we need to believe ratings mean nothing 2 games 2 cup ties lets go
May all of us enjoy pleasant games !
Thank you Team England for this special match. Have fun all !
it's a shame we couldn't get more help
Velier, esti inscris deja din acest motiv apare astfel.
Come on BIG GUNS help us out in this one
Worry not Ian and David. This match is due to be started on 28/11/11. Plenty of time for England's big guns to join !
This match looks like Tuffer's going in at no 11 with Glen McGraw shaping up at the other end!
er i think we need all our highest rated players here
Thank you again Team England! I wish everyone pleasant games!
