Maybe the most extreme difference from one side of the Atlantic to the other is venison. In Britain, it’s an expensive connoisseur meat because all deer are owned by the crown. In the US, it’s road kill and free. :)

for real steve?  yeah the deer are so overpopulated where i live they hire professionals at the end of hunting season to go kill a bunch of them to keep the overpopulation down.  a lot of people don't eat it due to the "gamey" taste if it's not field dressed immediately after kill.  a lot of deer and hunters where i live.  (not one myself)

Hedgehog is very popular, particularly since the economic downturn, its cheap and readily available, I'm not too keen though, it sticks in my throat a bit too much.

Is it bollocks!!! Steve's not from the UK. He's from a separate piece of rock called Cornwall. Clearly all weirdos.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Cornish Steve is 1 Pasty short of a picnic. 😀

Just digressing.  This reminded me.  I was once on a corporate 'do' in St. Tropez, run by Ford.  They had Jasper Carrot there as the entertainer.  There was a billiards table in the hotel where we stayed but it had no pockets.  Apparently, its a form of billiards called 'Carom'.  You play for canons.  Anyway, I played carom in a fourball which included Jasper Carrot.  He did the after-dinner speech and, as usual, was very funny.  He is a far better comedian than he is a carom player!

No stadium design yet and no firm commitment to Bramley Moore Dock.  The site is way too small for large stadium suitable for EFC. 

John. There is a lot of progress made. They have looked at designs, they just haven’t finalised one and submitted it. I was semi agreeing with you up until our new CEO spoke.

If Usmanov buys into EFC then matters will move and big time, and that means dropping this small inaccessible stadium in a windswept dock.

Him saying all this actually makes me worry, rather than reassure me.

not sure why mate it is just his opinion after all.

besides :

 "I don't have to tell you the commitment he's given to Everton in terms of time and finance and he's put hundreds of millions in the club," Kenwright said of Moshiri, "and I think there was a part of him now wanted that extra shareholding with the new stadium coming up.

Understandably, a lot has also been said about funding. Like all developments of this size and nature, the funding is complex. We have a number of options available to us. Liverpool City Council is one of those options and there are other opportunities we are exploring too. Any deal we do will be the best deal for Everton Football Club.

Bit concerned by this quote 

 It is a very long-term project and it will take several years before we move."

perhaps it is a long term to make a substantial profit and not necessarily  before we move in?

We already k ow it will be several years don’t we? I mean.... they haven’t even submitted planning yet.

Not really no. It was only the other day that the club reiterated the aim to be in the new stadium for the start of the 2022 season 

I suppose it boils down to your interpretation of ‘several years’

I think this discussion has popped up somewhere before, one is single, two is a couple, and three is several. 👍

3 is a few, 4+ is several for me.

Anyway, finances aren't all in order yet, no planning permission or designs released (that we know of), and then construction is a minimum 2 years. Then there's all the infrastructure that needs to be put in place around it... It'll be 3 years minimum after we've gotten everything approved and ready to go in my non-expert opinion. 2022? That will be impressive.

I've never quantified either myself; according to the dictionary "few" is 'a small number of' although that could be quite a high number as in 'a club with as few as 20 members' while "several" is 'more than two but not many'.

I think is just down to what our parents tell us.

i'm with @Matt , couple is 2, few is 3, several is 4+.  which is correct per dunc's comment, 2022 is 4 years from now.  nothing story.

But you're an American so your opinion on the English language is meaningless:P.

A few V&T's or several V&T's?

I think a "few" is relative and can be quite a high number whereas "several" is not relative and is always a low number, just my thoughts but obviously I'm rightB).

Yes, in Englad the life of a stadium is calculated in centuries, not years like in the US.

so true  they get a stadium in Britain …. AND actually allow the patrons to get used to it...…:P
