  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52601471 The way forward?
  2. Fair enough, each to their own; leaves the field clear for me!😂
  3. The Last Kingdom, didn't realise there was a fourth series out; in fact I didn't realise there was a third. Thea Sofie Loch Næss is a real stunner!
  4. Conspiracy theory, not commenting either way as I've no idea if there's any truth to it.
  5. The power of internet (while not petitions per se) resulted in wonderful outcomes for Captain Tom and Speedo Mick; I won't disagree that the Brexit one was moot because the decision was already made but people were still allowed to to make a protest.
  6. He's a local guy with just a Facebook page but plenty of positive comments. I'll weigh him up when he comes to quote, think I'm a decent judge of character for an obnoxious bugger, we can normally spot each other.😉
  7. Bit worried by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's wall art.. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/52584540
  8. I'm glad we're in agreement too but I still don't get how I misunderstood/didn't read the article, can you tell me (for example) the bit where it mentions roll-on/roll-off subs? Or indeed social distancing problems in Stockley Park? Edit: re-reading I do see that they mention the problem of VAR officials in small rooms but it's still easily avoided.
  9. VAR has one official making the decision does it not? If there needs to be a tech guy in the same room (though I don't see why there would need to be) I'm sure they could safely distance themselves from each other. There's no mention at all of roll on/roll off basketball style subs so don't know how you read that into it and we don't need to "minimise" injuries; if the players are at increased risk from injury and thus potentially needing the NHS the matches should simply not be played. This is about people dying, fuck football.
  10. Um.....why? How does this improve player welfare? And what does scrapping VAR achieve? And why the ridiculous sub changes? None of it makes any sense at all; if it's safe to play the games it's safe to play the games, tinkering with the rules is pointless.
  11. Our garden, front and back, is getting out of hand; I just don't have the energy or strength to do it anymore. My right shoulder, which was damaged and weakened by my surgery six and a half years ago, just gets worse over time. So today I've bitten the bullet and contacted a local gardener (they're apparently still allowed to work) and he's going to come out and give me a quote. Daughter's partner would normally be first choice but he doesn't drive and obviously I can't go and collect him. Never mind, the money I've saved by not having to fill the car up with diesel for two months will probably cover it.
  12. Google doesn't translate Australian (drunken?) ramblings into English sadly, can we try that one again.😂
  13. Can we have it for sixty-year-olds please?
  14. I agree some sort of national service would be good but not necessarily military based, could be community service or hospital/care home stuff. I did a fair amount of voluntary work in my thirties including at an old folks day centre; Josh was born during my time there and I used to take him in with me at times, they loved him to bits.
  15. I know you said the pitches were difficult but that's plain dangerous.😂
  16. Different one with aerosols was spraying them into a plastic bag and then inhaling the contents, intense but brief high; and highly dangerous.
  17. Inspired by the Kean thread let's be honest. I'll start. Late teens/early twenties I was walking home from my pub of choice in Guildford on a Friday/Saturday night, was a three mile walk which involved walking past Stoke Park which had many football and rugby pitches on it. The rugby ones were used by "Old Guildfordians" who had a clubhouse on the side of the park (where I went to several parties over the years). In my drunken state I decided it was a good idea to "rock" one of the rugby posts; it must've been old and a bit rotten because after a while pushing in both directions I managed to collapse the whole thing which I thought hilarious at the time. In my defence the guilt got to me soon after and I sent the club an anonymous donation to help replace the lost upright. I'm sure I can come up with a few more if I think about it but come on lads 'fess up.
  18. Indeed (and I'm off topic here) but if I recall correctly of the mods on here two voted to leave, one (me) voted remain, one was denied a vote and Louis is a mythical creature and nobody knows how he voted. So the suggestion that it all got nasty in the Brexit thread because all the mods are/were hard line remainers doesn't hold up; there's no doubt in my mind why the political threads descended the way they did in recent times...and it's now gone.

  20. Yeah it's quite good watching our "live" matches now as we're winning them all!
  21. What a dick. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/52552667
  22. Could live with that, weed be breaking new ground; and our burger bars would make a fortune from fans with the munchies. Win win, absolutely sp(l)iffing if you ask me, could be a great joint enterprise.
