  1. Found out the sad news via Twitter. I'm almost entirely an occasional lurker on VT these days, but just had to break my silence to express my sadness at the loss of Paddy. Never met the lad but, like so many on here I felt like I knew him. RIP mate.
  2. I'd wager most premiership managers in the UK today could manage to do well i the French league. I don't expect the reverse is true. Theres some severe claret and blue specs on tonight on this board. Honestly, speak to neutrals, most I'm talking to are pissing themselves laughing at this appointment. I'm surrounded by neutrals and not one has shown any evidence of soiling themselves. They all think it's a good appointment, particularly given the lack of other realistic candidates.
  3. Welcome Gerard. You look a bit like Gareth Edwards, which is good enough for me.
  4. :? Footnote: The majority anyway! I'll take that mate
  5. I'm rather disappointed that you were not in the hall jumping up and down with a VT banner, mate. Spoken like a man who's never been to Silksworth. I'd keep it that way if I were you - they're still smarting about the Carling Cup round these parts
  6. Houghton and Sunderland South is my constituency, and the tennis centre about 10 minutes from my house. A bit weird to be the centre of the nation's focus for a moment. Result not surprising of course. I went Lib Dem btw
  7. My wife raved about this, and I gave it a go a couple of months ago. Couldn't get on with it at all, and gave up after about four chapters. Reminded me of Dickens - her favourite writer, but my bete noir. Yeah, I could see why someone who wasn't into Dickens wouldn't like it. It isn't exactly rocking my world either. I was expecting more. There's much to admire about OTR, but I think 'OK' probably sums up my feelings on it too.
  8. Always worth digging up this thread I reckon. My current, but hopefully temporary, job means the best part of two hours in total travelling on the Metro into the Toon and has meant that I'm ploughing through books at the minute. In the last fortnight I've: - finally finished Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell and it was well worth it IMO - just the concept and that scale of the thing is impressive and to tie everything in to a very readable, and sort of believable story, is mind-boggling really. - polished off Drama City by George Pelecanos. My 3rd book by him and will definitely not be
  9. Serves him right for wearing that pimp suit on the way into the ring, and calling himself 'Sugar Ray, Clay, Jones Jnr' or whatever when he is clearly not fit to lace any of their boots. He can do whatever he wants, doesn't give judges the right to take food out of his mouth and a title from around his waist. Indeed he can. Doesn't stop me thinking he's a cock and tittering when he gets fetched down a peg or two either Fair enough, just out of interest did you watch it to see if he got beat up? Nah, tuned it for the Hatton fight, and it was on afterwards, in the b

  12. That's it for me Snowy. I think England do have the players, but not the mentality to let them express themselves. It's the old Leicester approach of stick it up the jumper, kick the points and grind it out. That's OK if it works, but very one dimensional if it doesn't.
  13. Better side won, and it should have been more. God, Wales were dreadful
  14. Can't see it mate. You defend too well, and we're too sloppy
