  1. Villa couldn't defend that. Hope Sir Richard has saved a couple of surges. Storm past Jack grealish and pass round mings the merciless πŸ˜‚
  2. I would have Tom in over Holmes and I actually think Marriott and waghorn a bit similar so would prefer to pair each in turn with Bennett.
  3. pretty much sums up the conversation i had with the Hampshire Blues. The issues with Chelsea are with Bruce Buck and that side of things as Roman is looking for some return on his outlay (and is increasingly distant from the club following the visa issue) Its a pretty poisoned chalice at the moment.
  4. I don't know - but suspect - there might be an interesting back story on Farage. How did he come by and refine his political views, for example? I've read slightly sneery pieces that he's really only a "wannabee" member of the elite, who wasn't being let in by the likes of the Bullingdon boys. I have no idea whether or not that has a shred of truth. Some of his actions and associations appear very naive though. I mean, how dim do you have to be not to realise that hanging out rent free in Chelsea and being "gifted" Β£450,000-worth of support might just contaminate your ONLY message of being a "man of the people". We seem a bit stuck as a nation. Do we respect the wisdom of people who are "self made" , as seems to be the case in the US, or are we deeply suspicious that such people could only have achieved through chicanery? Do we still despite everything, admire the "landed class" as being wise, impartial, makers of laws as they appear to be above the humdrum business of money making? Or do we worship vapid celebrity, for whatever reason. I just don't know - but rational and balanced discourse seems to be increasingly rare.
  5. if that's been happening, including the wins at Old Trafford, Southampton, good performances and not, then they are being consistent and so are most unlikely to stop because of one more good performance at Elland Road. QED
  6. Well said, that man. People should be consistent in their misery, or not miserable at all! I believe I may have expressed some disappointment at the first leg outcome and aspects of the performance (not really appearing to go for it, being too easily pushed off the ball etc), but to imply that Frank was somehow a busted flush is the most unadulterated balls, bullpoop and poppycock....πŸ‘
  7. sounds like a Toddyfact to me........ .....where's he got to by the way?πŸ˜‚
  8. I do relish a marquee signing........ .....shows our intent. πŸ˜‚ (other ancient one-liners are available....)
  9. only when the contestants came from a landlocked county...........πŸ˜‚ or if they lived in a city centre..........a caravan πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  10. I thought it was a sort of 4-2-3-1 at Villa park, but with Evans and Bird as the deeper midfield 2. From memory Frank was changing it up as we were in a bit of a rut and it completely backfired. But more than half of that XI will not be on the pitch at any time in the final. The home game was a weird one as i recall at the time we seemed ok in the first half, but got slower and more sideways as the game went on and even b4 was almost incandescent with rage. i don't think that either will be a reliable guide to what we will be like this time regardless of formation.
  11. Our closest supermarket is an asda and I do like their 4 bottles for Β£6. Youngs special, Shepherd Neame, Adnams Broadside, Wychwood...... Nothing too fizzy mind! (But Waitrose does better on odd foreign beersπŸ‘).
  12. I shall be stocking up at Waitrose for the train journey up from leafy Hampshire, as I refuse to purchase ludicrously overpriced warm lager on South Western Railway from a woman who looks like @Owd miner's Hildas mother πŸ˜‚
  13. It's not all new fangled and confusing. The buffet trollies still sell you food that dates from the time if British rail.....πŸ˜‚
  14. I prefer the elegance of why the square root of 2 is not a rational number as it gives you the chance to weave "reductio ad absurdum" into the conversation - she'll think you're Harry Potter and can do astonishing things with your wand........πŸ˜‚
  15. Peroni gran riserva is ok. The nastro azzuro is wishy washy. I grew out of that in the late 80s in Peterborough of all places....πŸ˜‚
