  1. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    Has there been much(or any) promotion of the world boxing super series over here? I haven't seen any yet, but seeing as super middleweight has groves and Smith(Hearn?) and possibly eubank and to a lesser extent Cox who I think is with Hearn as well I expected to hear a bit more and have a bit more hype. Have I just managed to miss it all?
  2. Couldn't find a thread for this so thought I'd start one. Fancied a bit of a nostalgia trip and this popped it's head up about the right time. Went round 4 shops today to pick it up and all sold out, even the online retailers appear to have sold out. Did they massively underestimate sales for this, produce limited stock or has it just sold that well? Either way I'm sure it'll be just as good as it was 20(has it really been that long) years ago.
  3. London Bridge Incident

    Devastating, I think this one hits home more knowing me and my friends were there not long ago. How do we stop this stuff from happening. 'intelligence' and prevention methods clearly aren't particularly effective against attacks like this. I've seen lots of calls for closed borders, early arrest and sentencing/ deportation, but I don't think that works or is possible tbh. I think the only way is to remove as much of the motive for someone to even consider it as possible. We can't undo getting involved in the middle East , but now even if we stopped getting involved in the middle East, how do you manage to make peace when they can't make peace with each other and you've given them every reason to hate you. At this point there must be an entire generation of people there that know us as one of the counties that bombed or was at war with them. It all just looks so hopeless to me.
  4. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Out of interest, did you ever have to train extremely quiet and timid people, and have any tips to help get them to engage and ask questions etc.
  5. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    100% this. Our training is either shadowing, or them completing work whilst monitoring everything they do as they do it in detail because as someone said above, any mistakes they make either now or the near future will be on my shoulders.
  6. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    New trainee at work, and they don't talk, 12 and a half hours and they only speak about twice, baring in mind when you're training you're with someone for the full 12.5 hours. I thought at first it was a shyness thing or just me, but we're almost four months in now and it's getting to the point where it's ridiculous, I'm talking to myself and explaining everything to the nth degree just to empty the silence. Probably shouldn't piss me off because they seem to be picking up the job but it's just mentally exhausting and I really can't see them staying.

    How much can you try and spin what your policies outline, Jesus.
  9. Playstation 4

    Best co op game I can think of is portal , not sure if it's local or ps4 though. But a quick Google found this
  10. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    WHAT A FIGHT! I have never been so wrong at every point. I didn't think it would live up to the hype at all. After the first 4 rounds thought it was going to be Klitschko's night. Then AJ comes out like a rocket and looks like he's finished it, only to gas so hard he could barely stand up and fail to follow up the kd. Then AJ goes down and is walking around the ring like me after 8 pints for he next 4 rounds, surely Klitschko will finish him. Nope he steps off seemingly looking for a points win, only for AJ to come from nowhere with an incredible uppercut and gets another kd. But he's gonna be gassed again I'm saying he's gone for it too early in the round, bang another kd. Ref asks wlad for his gloves, wlad says ok and drops hands and steps sideways, surely the refs gonna stop it the guys not even there. Nope carry on, and AJ continues the onslaught and gets the job done.
  11. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v SHA

    just got home, safe to say I'm worse for wear. Awful game, not sure there was any football and i couldn't care less =D Had to be Gabby didn't it, amazing Was rocking the last 30mins
  12. Horizon Zero Dawn

    Check out the machine bio's in the menus and exploit weaknesses. The reason I like this game so much is the fact that you have to approach each machine differently, and the fact a gang of walker's can be just as dangerous as a t-rex(thunderjaw). I don't want to spoil the fun of finding your own way to beat them but better weapons and the status effects are your friend. PS this game is brilliant, didnt want to to finish and when I did finish the story

    Those things aren't mutually exclusive though. Perhaps he thinks he can trash her with her own words whilst also believing that he and the Labour party can do a better job over the next few years. Not that I think he's particularily capable of convincing people of that. Just seen a green party broadcast, do they really think refugees and supporting protests is going to be a vote winner? Very bizarre choice imo.
  14. Formula One - 2017

    I'd imagine wehrlein will be back for the next race, unless some serious money has changed hands. And the race was disappointing tbh, I managed to watch the first half then had to leave for work just caught the rest on catch up and it seems nothing happened. I think these regs have made it very difficult to close the gap to pass.
  15. Formula One - 2017

    Ferrari and Mercedes looking evenly matched, verstappen at the back of the grid and a wet track that you can overtake on as well. Has all the ingredients for a great race. Let's see if these new regs are any good, if they don't work today then I don't think they ever will.
