    I think Bruce puts a high priority on a player’s availability to play and De Laet hasn’t had a good fitness/injury record in recent years.

    It reads like your aunt deserves all the trouble that might be coming her way! Are you ‘distant’ enough from that part of your family to be able to stand back and enjoy the fireworks’?

    It’s a bit better than £30k for 20 years as I’d invest what hadn’t been spent (eg £570k in year one, £540k in year two...). Probably get £30k per year for around 25 years or be able to take towards £40k in the latter of the 20 years.

    I’d like to give it a try!

    Why on earth didn’t your aunt keep the news to herself, especially knowing what her family would be like? Keeping it private would enable your aunt to occasionally treat individuals, as she thought was appropriate; after all she won the money, not them! Part of me hopes the win is on the smaller side just to spite her greedy family, but I suppose the best would be a big win and your aunt having the courage to donate nothing to anyone who asked. EDIT: I get on well with my parents and I’d be really pleased for them if they won £300k but I wouldn’t expect a penny. Anything given, even a simple meal out, would be gratefully received. I guess family dynamics vary greatly!

    Which is why I pick up from the station end of the monorail.

    ... that isn’t the drop off point next to the arrivals/departures but is a car park a quarter of a mile walk away. It’s still quicker and more convenient (especially with luggage) to hop on the free monorail.

    Definitely agree with bickster - make them wait. Even with a 45 minute drive, I’d be at home waiting for the call when the luggage carousel started to spit the first of the flight’s suitcases. Then they’ve probably got just a 15 to 30 minute wait after their physical needs break and walk to the pick up point. Better than you paying ridiculously high parking charges when you’re the one providing the favour.

    20 minutes from BHX for me and since they’ve started charging, even for a 30 seconds pick up or drop off, I meet my family at Birmingham International train station after their 3 minute ride on the free monorail from the airport.

    John Terry

    Even as someone who is ambivalent about Terry’s return, I think January is an exaggeration. Possibly if an inexperienced player had sat on his arse for the last 3 months, but a player with Terry’s experience who had also been keeping physically fit over the summer, should be up to his speed/sharpness in a few weeks. Whether the best speed/sharpness a 38 year old JT can muster is good enough remains to be seen.

    No travel to the UK shouldn’t be a problem but no travel to the rest of Europe might be a hassle for their remaining lives. Ideally the rest of the world would follow suit so at least they would be confined to Russia for the next 30 to 50 years but I assume many non European countries will turn a blind eye to this state sponsored murder and assault, despite that it could easily happen to their citizens. Sanctions will have a limited effect but will be no consolation to the family of Dawn Sturgess and all the others who were injured and/or affected.

    Towels are particularly bad when new as many are treated during the manufacturing process to make them feel softer; unfortunately this reduces their absorbency. For more absorbent (but less soft) towels, wash them without fabric conditioner.

    Yannick Bolasie

    I know there are many on VT who have no time for Bruce but I’d still recommend listening to his pre-match press conferences to hear who is injured or who is in contention to play. Bruce said he hoped Bolasie would be available after the international break.
