  1. People who never signal, so many of them. My old man was right. Always assume that every other driver is an idiot
  2. Shilton was in goal for us away against Newcastle in the late 80s. We'd just gone up and he was imperious that afternoon. The Geordies expected to tonk us but he kept them all at bay After that match Arthur asked for his shirt I was a very quiet young man in the gallowgate....
  3. Gloating doesn't strike me as a particularly British thing to do.
  4. As well as three points away from home are there any other things which you just don't see any more? I'll start Unspooled cassette tape by the edge of the curb Pipe smokers Dedicated white dog poo
  5. Again, thanks to Saint for all the hard work
  6. As always the club is in an interesting situation Despite that, and with the clock ticking I wonder what the best and worst transfer windows have been for us. Any suggestions?
  7. Deadwater Fell. Omg watch the first thirty minutes until the teacher's speech to see if it's for you
  8. Reminds me of a chat I was having with a Dirties fan during the playoffs. He said that the cognoscenti amongst leeds fans (yes, oxymoron) were happy to not go up since Bielsa was focusing on the u23s and that was the way forward
  9. Is Judith Curry the one who refuses to publish in peer reviewed journals? Wonder why not

    As a neutral I've just switched off. Literally and figuratively.
  11. Enjoying the Eagle has Landed. Cheesy as the Stilton in the fridge
  12. I'd also like Highgate to keep posting. Although my background is social sciences I find the proper sciences so much more interesting, especially when approached with such clarity.
  13. The Proclaimers, I would walk 500 miles Kevin Hector Give it a listen
  14. I understand that it was the beating of their hearts that gave them away
  15. I think they're alone now

    Passive aggressive element of the winterval or what? Kids coming around singing a verse of something misremembered before demanding cash Even the lyrics of some are aggressive, "Bring us some figgy pudding... And we won't go until we get some." Meh
  17. The fact that this thread won't go away suggests that her problematizing of the issue makes it difficult for it to be got rid of. Makes it difficult to ignore in other words. Given the situation in Australia that's probably a good thing.
  18. Just seen that he's suffering from cancer and doesn't have the greatest percentages in his favour. I remember him being nothing more than useful for Liverpool and then thoroughly entertaining on el dia despues Good luck to a liver of life
  19. Nice to see David Brent out of retirement and doing ads for the Tories.
  20. Tactical voting It's getting closer to rubbishagedon. I'm currently up in the North West where Brexit dominates the election surveys Many people considering putting a peg on their nose to vote for their Brexit beliefs rather than their political ones Would/could/should you? Or is it a sign that, no matter who wins the election, politics is broken?
  21. We're at the vanguard of the ban on heading
  22. I live in Nottingham. It's going crackers at the moment. New dog (rescue hound) has been with us for a week and has spent every evening cowering in different corners of the house as yet more uber bangers rattle the windows of NG9. Bonfires stink out the locality since most of them are damp collections of rotten wood with late autumn barbecue oil squirted on to try and get them going. Mushy peas? Mushy peas? The Italians invented pizza, curry from India, the poles do wonders with dumplings, the Chinese have (well) Chinese food. And all that Nottingham and its shire has done is invent mushy peas. And they are proud of it. I mention gingerbread, sage Derby and Bakewell tart and they shrug and add mint sauce to their peas. Can we do a definitive list of how Derbyshire offerings to civilization are superior to those from the other side of the M1?

    Movember is small potatoes I've given up on all personal hygiene for the month
  24. Just driven up to Inverness on some very ill lit roads. Reminded me of the worst road I've been on, which was one of those hairpin winders in the canaries where I didn't know what was coming next. What is your worst to drive on? Derbyshire/ UK/ overseas?
