2-2

Good game but disappointing result. Armenia's first goal was a lucky deflection and second one didn't seem to cross the line. Our goals were good, especially Vassiljev's long shot.

Also Kaljuveer told an Armenian Radio anecdote in live broadcast lol :D

If you remeber, can you write the anecdote?
Armeenia raadiole helistatakse ja küsitakse, millal tuleb Armeeniasse kommunism. Armeenia raadio vastab, et mitte kunagi. "Miks nii", küsitakse vastu. Sellepärast, et kommunism pole enam mägede taga, aga Armeenia on mägede taga.

Rough translation. There's a call to Armenian Radio and the caller asks: "When is kommunism coming to Armenia?"
"Never," answers the Armenian radio.
"But why"
"Because kommunism is not behind the mountains but Armenia is?

don't think there's an expression like behind the mountains in English like it is in Estonian. Maybe someone else can help a little more.

Thanx Jesper for the translation :thumbsup:

Maybe in English it sound (translated) like this:

This is Armenian Radio; our listeners asked us: “We are told that the communism is already seen at the Armenian horizon.” Then, what is a horizon?”

We’re answering: “Horizon is an imaginary line which moves away each time you approach it.” :D

PS: I still think how these guys from Armenian radio didn't been arrested and shooten for their "pro-communist" jokes.

Like:
This is Armenian Radio; our listeners asked us: “Is it possible to build socialism in Switzerland?”

We’re answering: “It's possible, but why? Did Switzerland really do something wrong to you?”


This is Armenian Radio; our listeners asked us: “Why Lenin wore regular shoes, but Stalin wore boots?”

We’re answering: “At Lenin's time, Russia was still only ankle-high in shit.”

And many others...

"Behind the mountains" is an expression for not far away or not too much to wait, aka soon or close. (while Armenia literally is behind the mountains).
Why do we have such an expression in the first palce, is weird since the closest mountain to us is like Alpes.

I bought a ticket to a non-fan friend who thought "it could be fun". Told him it's miserable, cold, wet with expensive beer.

They never really told these jokes on Armenian Radio of course. These were political jokes which were never told in public. And made up in other parts of Soviet Union, mostly in Russia. I don't know why these things were put into Armenian Radio's mouth.

Well, the first half hour we managed to cross central line 4 times. They had more corners by then than we touched their side pitch.Totally undeserved win but I suppose once in 10 years we get lucky.

Those jokes made their way through the GDR even to Western Germany, Radio Eriwan/Jerewan (as it was called here) is still a somewhat popular term.

Judging from your match reports the NT is still going through its low at the moment. There have definitely been better campaigns and more hopeful developments. Any prospect for better times?
