  1. When I was growing up we lived about four miles from Wisley airfield which was used as a Vickers test flight center, we used to have planes overhead all the time; some of them sounded like they were going to land in the garden.
  2. He still doesn't convince me at all; body language/tone just not statesmanlike (though who in the World is just now I know). Saying the right words but sounds like he's reading a script, which he obviously is; the trick when reading a script is to sound like you're not and he doesn't do that for me. Prove me wrong Mr Starmer.
  3. Stan Collymore... "I don't know of any Liverpool fan of any standing that won't be anything other than disgusted at the club for furloughing staff. It's just plain wrong. "Fellow football fans, furlough is for small business staff to keep those small businesses from going bump! "Every Premier League owner has serious cash, and makes money from skyrocketing values of clubs, so what aren't you getting about your owners dipping into their pocket?" Employee.. "The club call their staff their family - I'm not feeling like a family member. "Why is a club that turns over [millions of pounds] using a government scheme for its staff, when other businesses are more in need of it? "I feel disappointed and I'm feeling that this government scheme could be used by businesses in trouble." The member of stuff added that they were "disappointed, especially after Everton said they were not doing it".
  4. As I said I don't know much about him just going on his demeanour really, hope I'm wrong and you're right.
  5. I don't know much about him to be honest, comes across a bit weak though.
  6. Not having that you're only nine points ahead of me; just one game and all changes. Steve might give you the trophy but there'll always be an asterisk by it, same as if the PL give Liverpool the title.
  7. The political threads were opened again after a hiatus after things got nasty. You'll undoubtedly see me as "protecting" someone who I largely agree with but I see no evidence of a "foul mouthed lout" in anything pete has posted. If you want to make an official complaint use the report button and it'll be discussed. For now if these threads get abusive again they'll be closed.
  8. Quite a few pre PL teams included though, our team from back then would've spanked Leicester 15/16 nine times out of ten; probably our 69/70 team as well. That said though it's not really possible to compare across eras (contradicting myself I know); quite possible Leicester would give us a decent game, but in terms of relative performance against contemporary opposition we Ben Stokes them out of the park.
  9. How can Leicester 15/16 be included in this and not Everton 1984-87?
  10. Good to hear from you Dave and good luck with this (easy on the red text though).
  11. Okay then, another one Josh has challenged me with (I assume from ToffeeTV). Best Everton twelve comprising three English, three Scottish, three Welsh and three Irish (NI & ROI accepted) Southall (Wales) Coleman (Ire) Ratcliffe (Wales) Weir (Scotland) Van den Hauwe (Wales) Reid (England) Kendall (England) Sheedy (Ire) Ferguson (Scotland) Sharp (Scotland) Steven (England) Sub: Carsley (Ire)
  12. As me and my bro got bigger the greenhouse in the background became an inconvenience as it was right on the edge of our "football pitch" and glass breakages were routine; my dad had a grape vine growing the length of it and always grew the best tomatoes on the planet (can still remember the wonderful smell in there) but eventually the glazing bills got out of hand. Luckily, being a football man himself (half decent full-back actually) he did the sensible thing which was not to ban us from playing but to knock the thing down; sound man my dad. We never once got told off after yet another breakage. Happy days.
  13. DAY 1...working at home report. My wife just filed a harassment complaint with HR.

    Jokes thread

    A gorilla dies of old age at a zoo right before the zoo opens. It is the only gorilla at the zoo since they are not very profitable. However, the gorilla is their most popular attraction by far, and they cannot afford to go a day without it. So the zoo owner asks one of his workers to wear a gorilla suit they have in storage for an extra $100 a day if he will go in the gorilla cage and pretend to be the gorilla until the zoo can afford a new one. Quickly, the new "gorilla" becomes the most popular craze at the zoo. People from all over are coming to see the "Human-like" gorilla. About a month in, the craze has started to wear off. So, to get peoples' attention back, he decides to climb over his enclosure and hang from the net ceiling above the lions den next to him. A large crowd of people gather watching the spectacle in awe and terror. Suddenly the man loses his grip and falls to the floor of the lion's den. The man starts screaming "HELP!! HELP!!!" Suddenly a lion pounces him from behind and whispers in his ear, "Shut the f*ck up right now or you're going to get us both fired."
