|Wigan match Fred |
at 09:09 2 Feb 2019
Noticed there didn’t seem to be one, so thought I’d get in for my first.
Tough game today, possibly a week or so too early for us with players still out, but I’m going for a tight 1-1 draw.
|Looking for new broadband provider|
at 21:10 2 Mar 2018
Originally had BT Infinity, which was OK, but dear and had pishporr customer service. Went to Plusnet who surprisingly for sub unit of BT, were cheaper and had decentish customer service.
18 months on, I am looking at what is available and welcome any suggestions/experiences other have of suppliers. For what its worth BT look unlikely to be selected as they want too much and surprised me by telling me that the Infinity package they previously supplied wasnt available in my area. Also odd as the Plusnet package is the equivalent of it, uses a BT router and gives 50-60MB speeds. Was interested in Virgin, but they dont supply where we are (new development and only Openreach boxes around).
|Groves vs. Eubank Jr. on Saturday |
at 08:13 13 Feb 2018
Suspect it will be a great fight and genuine contrast of styles, but not sure who is favourite to win. Groves has fought at higher grade (but lost) whilst Eubank didn’t really perform as well as he might against a very experienced Saunders. Groves is deservedly champion and proven himself to be a great durable fighter, but also that he has improved as a boxer after moving to Shane McGuigan as a trainer. He has has proved himself to be a powerful hitter and Chudinov and Gutknecht fights were brutal in places.
Eubank though possibly tips it for me as I think he has really started to grow into the super middleweight division and his fights against Abraham and Yildrim looked to be really progressive steps. At this point though he has proved his durability I am not sure he necessarily has the stopping power at super middle.
I think this is a big step up for Eubank, but think if he doesn’t look to have a war with Groves he probably has the superior technique and skill to nick the fight on points. Thoughts?
|Cricket Eng v S.Af|
at 17:02 28 Jul 2017
Toby Roland Jones making test cricket look easy at the moment. Amusing 25 runs with the bat and now going through S.Af batting line up like a dose of salts. 4 wickets so far and counting 6 overs 2 maidens 4 wickets for 20 runs.
being doing it for Middlesex for past couple of years. Really pleased he has grabbed his opportunity.
|Leigh Day lawyers accused of misconduct over Iraq claims|
at 20:57 24 Apr 2017
Post from the BBC about what appears to be some very dodgy dealings by this law firm which falsely accused British soldiers being ambushed in Iraq of torturing and mutilating civilians. But neglected to mention that the claimants were in fact members of a murderous Iranian backed militia who carried out the ambush in the first place.

|What will uncle Tony tweet this evening?|
at 18:49 31 Dec 2016
Just wondering if our well intentioned but remarkably reactionary chairman will tweet some ill conceived but well meaning Bon mots to encourage us all tonight whilst being a little tipsy.
Following the faintly bizarre praise of our former allegedly crooked bagpuss clone of a manager yesterday what can we expect this evening in light of Holloway finally winning again after a seemingly endless night of losing. Will it be hyperbole or a sudden urging for the playoffs or instead a misguided praise that ignores the many deficiencies in our performance?
For the sake of the children I hope that someone takes his phone off him this evening and let's enjoy the win and new year, rather than let some trolling toad like scrote Jones taking the shine off an otherwise good day.
|N/T Changing fibre broadband |
at 17:13 26 Aug 2016
Welcome advice on peoples experience with changing fibre broadband and telephone. We have been with BT superfast broadband for past 2 years. Had generally been ok, but price is now really high so looking to switch someone else for less. Virgin aren't an option as they don't have fibre laid where we are. Looking at PlusNet who seem to be well regarded and cheaper than their parent company (BT).
Welcome any thoughts or feedback from anyone on PlusNet or other options.

Did we really just sign this wastrel?
I mean, I know he is Danish and that I in some way should be in favour as a result (having championed Nygaard). This one is a really odd move. Aim off for the fact he is a total bellend and has failed everywhere he has gone, and I still cant quite see why we bought him or where he fits in.
Only rationale I can come up with is that we wanted a big lump of overrated under-performing striker and this was the best of dregs that was left over in the cheap as chips pile. Can only assume that his wages are very low and no sign on fee. Really hope he proves me wrong, but it's transfer that I cant quite see working.
