RE: WC: Tunisia vs England

With VAR, how England haven't had a couple of pens, (especially considering theirs!) is ridiculous.

Emery is a good manager and far less of a gamble than Arteta.  Although he has had silly money to spend...
Wouldn't be surprised to see Wenger at PSG.

Bandi, you're saying you're getting old and losing high frequency in your hearing (correct) but that you can hear yanny - which is in the higher frequency range.

Laurel for me.
It's a man's voice saying it clearly with L's at either end.
Others hear a 'whiny' voice saying yanny.
Bizarre.

Really enjoying this too.
Very easy I'd say but enjoyable nonetheless..
Seeing your first helicopter and being able to just get in it and fly with no silly buying/unlocking was a real joy too.

We've been on the wrong end of so many refereeing decisions in the last few weeks - esp for penalties.
Joke decision at the end.

Final here we come - amazing.

RE: [VIDEO] Avengers: Infinity War

I watch these films but I'm not a 'fan' of comics etc.
Even though I've seen these characters in previous films I've often completely forgotten them by the time I see them in the next one.
I've also not seen any promo stuff for the film either so didn't know some of the stuff that was going to happen (apparently I'm in the minority there!).
Sooo..., saw this today.  Not a great deal to say really - thought it was great, loads of action, lots of humour.  A few characters I had no real clue who they were - even though they were in films I've seen before (!)  Who's Bucky lol?
And the ending leaves you feeling unlike you feel after the ending of any of the other films in the series.....

RE: [VIDEO] The Official Liverpool 2017/18 Season Thread

Just wanted to say absolutely gutted for Ox.
Incredible change and he's come on a huge amount.  The difference proper man management and playing in position has made is amazing - he's become a great and important addition to the squad.
Very mature young man who speaks so much sense in interviews too.
Must be devastated at missing a probable CL final and World Cup but tweeted a really nice tweet:
"Absolutely devastated to have picked up this injury at such a crucial time in the season. Gutted I won't be able to play any further part now in our Champions League run for Liverpool, and also the World Cup with England.

"But now it's all about supporting the boys and getting behind them. I know we have what it takes to do something special in this tournament. I'm going to give everything I have to make sure I'm back as quickly as possible.

"However, this all pales in comparison to how the family of the Liverpool fan badly hurt before last night's game must be feeling. My thoughts are with him and his loved ones. Thank you for all your kind words, messages and support. I'll see you soon. #YNWA."

Get fit soon Ox.

To annihilate a side of that stature at that stage of the competition is unreal.

Rodgers would surprise me but bookies aren;t often wrong so surprised there too.. :)
I expected a top, top manager who'd been there and done it all - with maybe an ex-player alongside.

RE: Ant drunk driving forces rehab

Yes, I've seen fines of a few hundred quid to a few grand I think.  I can't recall one close to this amount. (note, this is just an observation and in no way whatsoever do I think it's too much or excessive!).
Not forgetting this did result in a crash.

RE: Ant drunk driving forces rehab

I was surprised at the amount of the fine.
Sadly, drink driving isn't exactly something new with celebrities, but are there other figures to compare it to?

RE: couple of good deals on Micro SD cards

Haven't needed a card for a year or so so ordered one today and then saw this!!
Had already ordered the Tosh card as heard good things about them.  Paid a bit more from Amazon but not worth cancelling.
64GB for £16 or so - ridiculous!

RE: Cheaper to drive to Bristol than to go by train?

I agree the story makes for a good headline but to pay a few hundred quid to sit on a train to go that sort of distance is almost criminal no matter how far in advance the ticket is booked.  It really is disgusting.  As soon as there's more than one of you it becomes a no brainer.
We've needed to use trains a few times recently and it really isn't cheap.  If things go according to plan, our daughter will be going to university in Bristol this year and those sorts of prices don't really make visiting or coming home any more appealing. :)

RE: Going to New York... advice?

Jeez, I'm shattered..
So, got home this morning and had a few hours sleep.  Hope will be OK sleeping tonight..
Well WOW.  Absolutely amazing place.  Yup, it's big.
We got the our hotel (Times Square) by the AirTrain and Subway to within 100yds or so of hotel.  Probably about $45 return for us all.
Things we did:...

  • Times Square
  • Ground Zero & 9/11 Museum.  Difficult to do justice just what a job they have done here.  The museum is an astonishing feat of engineering in itself and so so respectfully done.  Seriously, seriously well done 'America'.  Very, very emotional.
  • Battery Park/'coastal' walk.
  • Staten Island ferry to view Statue of Liberty.
  • Subway across to Brooklyn and walked back across the Brooklyn Bridge. Brilliant.
  • Wall St.
  • Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Hell's Kitchen
  • The High Line - brilliant.
  • USS Intrepid (didn't go on).
  • Top of the Rock.  Views!!
  • Empire State Building.
  • Various 'building' spotting including Chrysler Building, New York Library, Grand Central Terminal, Madison Sq Gardens and others.
  • Central Park and Natural History Museum.  Strawberry Fields and Dakota Building.
  • Ate well.. :)
  • Lots of other stuff my barely functioning brain has forgotten.
Cheers for the tips all, they really helped to make a truly memorable trip.

Seems quite different tone to Season 1 - looking forward to it.  Although will probably only get around to it once it's finished and avoid this thread mostly..
