  1. Personally I'd be delighted if we kept the same kit and avoided fleecing the fans, though everyone does it now and probably the fans want/expect a knew model. "When I were a lad" I just wanted a blue shirt, the important thing being blue cuffs rather than white. Parents scoured so many sports shops.
  2. Part of our routing over here was flying over Basel and the Alps Matt, pilot mentioned it specifically; sadly too much cloud to see anything this time. When we flew home last September weather was perfect and we didn't see a cloud at any time, love looking at the mountains from above though they'd scare the shit out of me if I was standing on one.
  3. Enjoy Matt, I did a "tour" of my two local bars earlier and had four beers. Three were "on the house" and the other was "pay me later" because he was eating lunch, love it here so much. People are great.
  4. No I'm just going by Pete's thoughts and the Sky link; I'm on holiday ffs don't ask me difficult questions.
  5. OK but even if you struggle to tell the difference between Geordie and Scottish (poles apart in my view even though close geographically) why the jeers? That's the big thing that I don't get. Also there seems to be no denial that the comment was made so pretty much an admission that someone said it, which is pretty stupid when the UKAD people were doing what they're employed to do. So whoever called them c***s failed to grasp that concept. If it was an Everton player (one or more) involved I'd be embarrassed
  6. 'As the players left a team meeting, Snodgrass was accused by two officials of asking "Have you c**** got nothing better to do?" in an "aggressive tone" and was "much louder than the jeers from the other players".' Why were the players "jeering" though when it's a part of their routine to do this stuff? Whoever said it the UKAD staff were just doing their job, we all have stuff we'd rather be doing than our job most of the time but we have to do it to keep the family fed. And Carroll is a geordie so how would his accent be confused with a broad Scottish one? Think the fact that West Ham "reluctantly" excepted the penalty and decided against appeal says it all.
  7. Vote tomorrow people, whatever your persuasion (unless you opt for Farage in which case you're banned). Needs a decent turn-out to have any relevance.
  8. I hope you're playing next season also Rubes because at least then I'm sure not to come last.
  9. Another disturbing fact in an increasingly frightening World it seems then. I'd love to be 19 again but in many ways I'm glad I'm 59, the future is scary.
  10. Read a long article on "prosperity theology" in the US on the plane today, about Joel Osteen mostly; fastest growing arm of Christianity over there according to the article with more traditional congregations falling. Be interested to hear what our American members views are on that, @Cornish Steve in particular. Sounded a bit frightening to me, but I've obviously only read the one piece, never heard of it before.
  11. OK lads am off for an early night, alarm set for 1.30am before we relocate here for four weeks. Try not to squabble too much.
  12. Kudos Mr Heseletine... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48344485
  13. I do, just a shame it wasn't something heavier hitting him in the temple and resetting his brain to sane mode.
  14. Just watched it for second time, grew on me though I didn't dislike on first viewing. I don't think they could've come up with any ending that a lot of people didn't like, was a thankless task. (It was a million times better than the "Lost" finale for one thing)
  15. But it appears that he didn't go back to the Watch, why else would they make such a big thing of him going north of the wall and the gate closing behind him?
  16. Really hope they identify who did it and make sure they never get to work in the industry again.
  17. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-48339711
  18. Thanks, may invest in a bottle of champagne on the way home 😁.
  19. But it was only the unsullied who wanted that and they've gone.
  20. Officially discharged 😁. I got quite emotional actually which I wasn't expecting.
  21. Want a spin-off on Arya's travels myself. Also John sent to Castle Black but he didn't stop there, what's he intending to do north of the wall? And why did he still have to go once the unsullied had shipped out?
  22. Whisper it guys but we might just have a team for the WC. I still think we have it in us to collapse to 150 all out once or twice but if we can limit those to group games and get into the last four nobody will want to play us. Cautiously optimistic, when one or two fail there always seems to be another couple to step up, some incredible fielding today as well.
