    I will be really interested to see if the Martin / Marriott link becomes thing in some games.
    Martin has his flaws, when starved of service he was worse than useless, his lack of pace was exposed so as a loner up top he was doubly isolated. He isn't a player who can hunt for a ball on his own like Waggy or Nuge. BUT give him a whippet like Marriott close to him and suddenly he could be a very different player.

    Well yes Andy but how many folk can talk with any knowledge about the lines of Torres Vedras or the Opium wars or steam engines or Louis Pasteur or Bell or Edison or Marie Curie.
    It’s an interesting thought. When does history become “meh, whatever”
    intersting that The Roman Law, the forum, Greek philosophy still have echoes, for me I am looking forward to knowing more about none western history, Chinese explorers from 1000 years or more ago made it to Australia and the Antarctic 
    ooops I am going off on one .. love history and the development of humanity. But it has been so short in relative terms

    He looked a lot like him that's for sure. I just wondered if Fulham were stacked so looking to get him a few months elsewhere.

    Michael Collins is an interesting one. Never got the same attention as the others, because he was the designated driver and got to just sit there orbiting the moon. Has a man ever been more alone than those moments when his craft went to the dark side of the moon and he lost contact with the entire human race?

    Heard someone say on the radio today that’s it’s the only thing from the 20th century that’ll be remembered in the 30th century.

    I don’t know what generation everyone is but for me as a 10 year kid old lover of fireball XL5, Stingray and Thunderbirds this was a truly epic moment. For a kid and for history 
    In a sophisticated tin can on top of the biggest rocket in the world,With on board computer power slightly less than a Casio calculator they travelled 500,000 miles and were first to set foot on another celestial body.
    We talk about legends and heroes . Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins. 3 of mine. Cheers lads. 
    yeah yeah . Conspiracy theories, yeah yeah old fashioned, but who in 100 years will remember some rapper millionaire with a weird name ? 
    Moon landing. Magical, unique moment for science, technology, endeavour and bravery.

    Hi all, what is, I hope, a final bump on this thread!
    The old boy has finally been give the all-clear. His PSA readings have dropped from 29 to 2.7 over the course of his radiotherapy sessions so it's pretty much the best result we could have hoped for. He'll have to undergo checks for a few years yet and will continue hormone treatments until they get his PSA down to comfortably below the 2.0 mark, but the side efffects from radiotherapy are already receding and he's in great spirits and already back on the golf course!
    A massive, massive thank you to you lot for all the positive posts and support given. I have really struggled at times with the whole thing and as such, the kindness shown to me was a big help and greatly appreciated. There are a few topics on here dealing with uncomfortable subjects and they clearly illustrate what a wonderful core of folk there is at the heart of this forum. It's something I won't forget.

    jono got a reaction from kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong in Anya - not sure what to make of this...   
    Wouldn’t it be amazing if George can do it. He’s 26, we know he has the skill set. My only reservation is has his sporting body recovered enough to have that last 5% of reaction time. In his last come back he still had it all but got caught napping a few times. You could see heavy legs but it was a short lived come back so who knows ? 
    If he can get sharp again we might just have a 26 year old midfield maestro in our midst that hasn’t got many miles on it and hasn’t seen the light of day for a season and a half and at his peak can dominate a game.
    For me the jury is out, but boy oh boy  i’d give him every chance .. if it comes good we’d be purring like a rolls Royce

    If not a complete swap at half-time, I expect there'll be a number of substitutions. All the players need as much game time as possible, to get them match sharp. I'm surprised that there wasn't a midweek game arranged, to enable more players to get some game time.

    I think Cocu said Rangers would be preparation for the first game of the season. So I wouldn’t be surprised if this is two halves again.
