RE: Everton: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Great match, first time I can remember in a long time where I was half confident we may snatch a victory.

In the end it took a silly goalkeeping error and the head of someone who hadn't played since the opening day of last season for what was the simplest of headers.

Gut wrenching, but as I say, great game...

"Also seeing rumours if Disney did pick it up, it wouldn't actually be picked up, they would recast it, possibly re-imagine it. Which also sounds exactly like ruin it!"

That would just be silly...

"What is the point of Theresa May writing open letters in newspapers, speaking to the public, bypassing parliament to get the people directly on board with her plan if she isn't going to go for a second referendum? Otherwise she's just wasting her breath and her time when she should be trying to get parliament on side with her plan."

I think she's hoping enough people will write to those MP's against the plan to try and force them to change their minds.

I doubt it will work...

"Only a third of the country though, remember that.

As it happens, a second referendum is being mentioned so often these days it's becoming more and more a certainty."

Less than a third voted to Remain, so remember that also...

"I saw a retweet earlier from a writer, apparently this has been cancelled too. I don't think there are any left now? :("

To be fair, the words I'm hearing are that it's only cancelled on Netflix as Disney are launching their own streaming service...

RE: [VIDEO] Bohemian Rhapsody (Freddie Mercury story)

"I was a tad young for 'actual' punk when it first hit, but what it lead to definitely improved music.

Still love The Stranglers and I played London Calling (the album) to death."

I never got punk at all, although I liked the odd track I saw on TotP (of which I class Jilted John and Plastic Bertrand) and only got into the Stranglers with European Female, etc when they went more mainstream and synthy.

One of my best memories though was a services school ski trip in 1981 to Bavaria and one of our ski instructors cum bus driver was a squaddie called Skippy who played me Frigging In The Rigging and taught me the words...he also has the Flash Gordon soundtrack as well, which probably explains my love of it as he played it quite a lot that trip...

"The punk era destroyed music for me, could not stand it, in fact, I am sure it almost destroyed 'Top of the pops' as people lost interest."

Really?  Don't you actually remember the bland s***e that populated Totp?

Never got into punk at all, but even I recognise it for what it was...

I don't use mine at all either, but my other half (her of the mysterious derivative Skyrim review) uses hers all the time and now has:

1,958 hours on Skyrim
798 hours on Skyrim SE

" was talking to people at work the other week after they saw it, and was trying to explain to them that before Live Aid... Queen were really uncool, and they found it hard to believe."

Not sure that's totally true as they'd pulled it back a bit with The Works, but good grief, they were certainly in a downward trajectory after Hot Space and arguably The Game...the latter rescued by the release of the first Greatest Hits compilation to cash in on Under Pressure...

"I bet the 'live aid' re-enactment scenes were fantastic, I remember watching the whole day and night live on TV (the UK and USA concert) and Queen stole the show, just one of those moments of rock history not ever to be forgotten."

The Radio Ga Ga clapping by thousands of people not even there to see Queen still raises chills today, and the crowd singalong - which I never knew until very recently was a Mercury staple...

Not really missing it at all at the moment.  

Can't even remember if i'm three or four behind...

RE: Everton: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Have to say, I was really impressed by our match against Chelsea.  Definitely a hard fought point there, and overall quite a niggly fight.  Chelsea really don't like it up them...

Also, since when did this become a common thing:

I'm being told on social media that all teams move the Ref's spray, but as I don't watch an awful lot of football outside of our games, not something I've ever been aware of...

"Buy a poppy, don't buy one, buy a white one, wear one, don't wear one, fine. Treating it as anything but a symbol for remembering people who gave their lives, I just don't get either.

I was heavily against the Iraq war, Tony Blair disgusts me, but the soldiers that went there to fight don't get to choose their battles."

Agreed, I served in the first Gulf War and just happened to think it was a just war, despite the underlying geopolitical issues.

I never agreed with any of the others, but we sign on the dotted line and go wherever the Government of the day decides to send us and do our best to do what is asked of us...
