  1. The only book of Mieville’s I’ve read. It took me time to acclimatise but I thought it was excellent and such a feat of imagination. As for my choices... I’m partial to multi-novel-spanning universes so Stephen King and David Mitchell both scratch that itch. I love Mitchell’s style too. Another vote for Reacher from me. Pure escapism that’s much needed at the present time. Villains receiving a fitting punishment for their crimes, brutally delivered, is a refreshing contrast to reality. I’ve just started The Day Of The Locust after it was suggested by @HanoiVillan early on in thi
  2. What’s wrong with him?! Mount did look pretty sharp when he came on against a dispirited Wales who were 3-0 down and ready for bed. But Wales didn’t start out like that. They were up for it and were in the game. Grealish, with that assist, was the one who broke their spirits. So strange to not see it recognised.
  3. Nice one on getting it published so quickly. I haven’t subbed to a Villa podcast since the excellent Aston Villa Review ended, but keen to bask in last night’s euphoria a little longer I had a listen earlier. If it wasn’t there this morning when I had that impulse to listen I’d have probably not bothered at all, but instead you’ve added another sub, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. It was a really good listen and sounds much more polished than being just a few episodes in. Good work, I’ll be listening regularly from now on.
  4. Gabby was just on Talksport. Well worth a listen. He got asked if Villa had been inspired by Leeds... somehow they’re getting credit for our wins now. Gabby gave them their answer though.
  5. I haven’t posted on here for a while but this one really got me. A man at the peak of his powers who faced a cruel situation with such dignity. So cruel.
  6. Have you thought about writing? I've been reading your posts for years, and you're one of the most eloquent posters on here. You summarise complex topics with ease and you're clearly a deep thinker. Something like Copify could be a good place to start. It's a marketplace for businesses that need copy. You have to apply to join, but I'm sure with your qualifications and skills you would breeze through. It's a convenient way of building up a bit of a portfolio and earning some money. It's how I got started in the industry. I work in this field, so if you want any advice, you're always
  7. He did. And he stabilised us, so I agree he wasn't all bad, but if he had got us up, we weren't built to last and never would have been. Edit: I was always positive about him and wanted to support him as manager, but with hindsight I was wrong. There were better options, as Dean Smith demonstrated.
  8. I didn't have Annie Lennox down as a cricket fan.
  9. I stopped eating any meat from pigs a couple of years ago after seeing up close how intelligent and inquisitive they were. But I've carried on eating meat from other animals until now. I just stumbled upon a video on Twitter that opened my eyes to the reality of how animals are treated (tortured and slaughtered) due to industrial farming. Really upsetting. I knew it was bad already, of course, but there's nothing like seeing it with your own eyes. Time to end the cognitive dissonance and face up to what I eat, I guess.
