  1. There are five of the best players I’ve ever seen play for us full stop in that squad. (God, Atkinson, Daley, Yorke and Ugo)
  2. I hate those **** things! They’ve actually have been around for years and became a silly trend way before COVID. They started off as ‘Winter igloos’ which at least makes some sense, but venues have been putting them up in the summer too. You pay through the nose to sit in what’s basically a bit of plastic with some chairs in it.
  3. I was trying to remember these places but couldn’t picture them in my head. I’d say Broad Street had around fifteen viable places for a drink and the Arcadian had 52 Degrees North (which won national awards) on the upper level and about five/six decent places in the internal concourse. Then you had a few places just nearby outside or on Hurst Street (Green Room and Steering Wheel/Bambu). As the outsider I am these days, it doesn’t seem that sheer volume has been replaced. Bennett’s Hill and Temple Street just doesn’t have an equivalent amount of venues.
  4. Broad Street was a worthwhile place to out back in those days. It’s not any more and I wonder whether that’s reflective of a general decline in nightlife across the whole of the city centre. That’s not to say there aren’t still places to go, but 15-20 years ago, I’d say the nightlife was nicer, more expansive, had a greater volume of decent venues and was overall just better than it is now. On Broad Street, I remember places like the Living room (expensive, flashy), Stoodi Bakers (late night, good music), Some Place Else (pre-drinking venue) for the club - Bakers (which was generally well
  5. Southgate looks like he pulls himself off to trains the duller than sewerage, waistcoat rocket polisher, c**knosed spunk maggot. And he got lucky at the last World Cup.
  6. Betting activity can move a market, and is a factor that definitely can affect pricing, but bookies most definitely calculate odds based on their analysis and conclusion of how likely they believe something is to happen. https://www.onlinebetting.org.uk/betting-guides/how-do-bookmakers-set-odds-and-make-money.html I wouldn’t fancy betting on us to finish in the top half (as it stands) and still anticipate a relegation battle. Not on of those where you need to keep one eye on the teams further below, just in case you get dragged down, but a full on scrap to avoid it.
  7. Excellent show. It explores various interesting, fun, deep (Omar’s relationship with his father) and taboo themes (wildchild Valerio and Lucrecia). You develop a slow liking to characters you might initially dislike such as Guzman and the Marchioness (Ester Exposito ) I just can’t watch it in English dubbing, I found it unbearable. It’s genuinely much, much better in Spanish with English subtitles; the same goes for Money Heist.
  8. Three months later and I’m still waiting for my £500 back from Virgin Airlines. It turns out the outbound flight was cancelled and, even though I booked it through Opodo, I’ve discovered the contract is still with Virgin Airlines. Good article here that might be of use to others: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2020/jun/24/get-this-message-over-to-airlines-stop-passing-the-buck-over-refunds I’m also now being led a merry dance by Ryanair for cancelled flights to Barcelona.
  9. Given that Dean Smith definitely wasn’t a cog in the machine at Brentford, we should go and nick Thomas Frank.
  10. Meanwhile today, over on Clapham Common.

  12. Re: Virgin Airlines. I was due to fly with them to Vegas back in April. The kept the flight running (so THEY didn’t cancel it) therefore my automatic right to a refund didn’t apply. This is despite a) citizens of the UK were banned from entering the US b) The FCO had advised against all but essential travel. I’ve got to go down the insurance claim route or accept a voucher. Given that Virgin Atlantic look in big trouble, I’d rather not take the voucher because I don’t trust the airline will exist by next year. tl;dr - If you’re booked with Virgin and they keep the flight run
