  1. Absolutely. I conned myself, and enjoyed the cheaper fares, without realising the implications, but I hope other people in London have seen sense and are doing the same as me and going back to black cabs. We all turned our backs on them en masse but I hope something good comes out of this in that the traditional black cab business has a more secure future.
  2. Uber. As someone who has championed them in the past, I now no longer use their shoddy service. This is how the booking process has worked out for me the last few times I’ve tried and I no longer even bother: I request an Uber. They accept the booking but then spend an age searching for an available driver. A driver accepts, but, lo and behold, what do we have here AGAIN? “Demand is higher than usual so fares are higher” or whatever the cocking message is so they now want, and this is the most recent example, 47 quid to take me less than five miles. Say if I were to accept, the driver would probably take much longer than the indicated five minutes or make a pathetic attempt to reach me before cancelling because he no longer fancies it. Say I do get the pleasure of someone actually making it to me, they’ll then follow some crappy route suggested to them by whatever useless app it is they’ve decided to use because they don’t know the way themselves. Now I just don’t even bother and will just flag down a black cab. They’re nicer, quicker to find (and get me to my destination), the drivers are more pleasant AND they are now often cheaper. And as for Bolt. LOL.
  3. Long term posters will remember someone called Gazton Villa who created one of the most legendary topics ever posted on VillaTalk (during the DoL era). Memories.
  4. I think I’d have liked to see him take to the podium at a press conference and cry (Messi style), in a way that it shows how much leaving means to him. I wish he could have shown that it hurt every single fibre in his body and how much it broke his heart. That might have been better than a shit eating grin about how buzzing he was to get the number ten shirt and all the waffle about what a proper football club he’s joined.
  5. Totally naive if people think it’s a few pleasentries about how wonderful a club is and not some light to very heavy persuasion.
  6. Stuff like this is also why I hope none of our players ever play for England again. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/aug/05/jack-grealish-seals-record-100m-manchester-city-move-from-aston-villa Translated as: “Yeah, I was tapped up by the players too. They tap each other up all the time on international duty” Oh and…Stonesy, Raz, Walks
  7. Yes Pep! Just another 100M on Grealish and another ~100M on Kane and that £1BN spent MIGHT just FINALLY win you the Champions League. Well done, you bald headed, Championship manager on cheat mode, over rated, wank maggot, word removed.

  9. No doubt Jack absolutely loves this club but he wants to win trophies and doesn’t see himself as a one club man. He has ambitions of winning everything possible and one day playing abroad. I’m sure his past injuries (especially the kidney injury) make him acutely aware that a footballer’s career could suddenly be over in the blink of an eye. It’s for those reasons I think he’ll leave sooner rather later and, guttingly, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it’s this summer.
  10. You can’t take an observation of one city and think the country will be like that. Here in London it’s a different story to Liverpool. Places have been fully booked with all tables occupied. Central London has bonkers busy. Covent Garden over to Carnaby and through to Soho have been probably the most packed I’ve ever seen them in the fifteen years I’ve lived here. I’d wager any money that this will very soon translate into venues being busy inside on weekends. I’ll be out next Wednesday and again on Saturday and I can’t wait to see places heaving inside again. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t commented about how they’re looking forward to getting back inside places and not being restricted to a pre-booked table. In terms of people speaking in bars and pubs, it’s been very heavenly monitored down here. You will soon get moved if you dare mingle with a table not in your own group. But then, that’s my observations from the places that I’ve been, I’m sure there are pubs out there with locals who are shouting across tables at each other.
  11. Sarah Gilbert said that any variant radical enough to make their vaccine ineffective would also be non-functional. Also interesting Tweet here: That will certainly happen but then it goes back to exactly what Alex said: we can’t lockdown forever.
  12. I’ve helped out during AZ and Pfizer vaccination sessions. They encouraged anyone who drove/cycled to sit and wait for 10/15 mins after the AZ vaccine. For the Pfizer vaccine, everyone was expected to sit for 15 minutes afterwards regardless of whether they drove or not. You will be fine to drive but stick to the guidelines suggested to you by those working at the centre. They will explain everything clearly. Ask one of the on-site clinical staff if you have any doubts/uncertainty.
  13. I volunteered for a second time at a vaccine centre and was offered a jab at the end of the shift. So that was nice.
  14. Myth. I’d win a fight against a Quokka. It would come at me all friendly, and even attempt to pose for a selfie, but I’d catch it unawares with a jab-uppercut combo and the fight would be over in seconds.
