    Agree with all of that. The last thing Andy's body needs at the moment is five set matches - best to skip Wimbledon this year and continue with a measured return. However, I think he will play.
  2. Agree that series 3 did pick up as it went on and ultimately I suppose it had to go in a different direction to the first two. Series 4 is already dropping off of iPlayer I'm afraid as it was only on for the standard 30 days, unlike the older series.
  3. Agree with this. Previously, Aberdeen have been seeded in the second qualifying round, so Sevilla, etc. wouldn't have been an option. The new club co-efficient system has changed all of that and we are now unseeded. It's only going to get tougher!

    Play offs

    Some Highland league clubs fancy it and some don't - Cove are definitely a club who do. I've watched Cove a couple of times this season and went to the play-off semi against Spartans, Cove are a decent side and by all accounts the 0-0 draw last week more than flattered Cowdenbeath. After being homeless for a few seasons, the new Cove stadium is almost complete and it would be fitting if the first competitive league game there will be in league 2. I think Cove will do it.
  5. On iPlayer until 21st of June. The first 3 series have 10 episodes each.
  6. Started watching the complete Bridge on iPlayer a couple of weeks ago and now up to episode 2.4. It is superb!! Series four starts on BBC2 on Friday, so will have to avoid spoilers until I've caught up! Also did a complete re-watch of Life on Mars a month or so ago and it has aged well - still my all time favourite TV series.
  7. Players I've watched live many times: Leighton Kennedy, Miller, McLeish, Robertson Strachan, Simpson, Bett, Weir Harper, McGhee Subs: Snelders, McKimmie, Anderson, Jess, Gillhaus, Black, Hewitt.

    At least Bedene saw the light and realised this season he is Slovenian afterall. Meanwhile, Federer takes a wild card in Rotterdam in an attempt to get back to number one.

    Don't think there's any chance of him going near clay this year. I'd expect the same schedule as the first half of last year: Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami, skip the clay court season, then Stuttgart, Halle and Wimbledon where he will be favourite, if fit. I think what the last 12 months has highlighted is that the previous decade really was the golden era. There's no way a 36 year old should be winning major's nor a half fit Nadal (at Flushing Meadows).

    It does feel like this is the end of high level competition for Andy and time also appears to be catching up with the others as Nadal, Djokovic and Wawrinka are all major doubts for Melbourne... the freak that is Fed keeps on going though.

    New scottish tax bands

    No spin at all and 100% correct, I'm merely separating the impact that the Westminster and Holyrood budgets will have on the Scottish tax payer, something the SNP are reluctant to do. I am all for a progressive tax system, but despise rhe disingenuous politician speak surrounding these announcements. One thing is indisputable - people in Scotland earning £26k+ will, from April, be paying more tax than those on the same salary elsewhere in the UK.

    New scottish tax bands

    To be fair, it's mostly spin from Sturgeon - the SNP are trying to take credit for the Tory rise in the personal allowance from £11,500 to £11,850. Looking only at the SNP adjustments, the 19% band will save a taxpayer a maximum of £20/year. The 21% band will recoup at least that from everyone earning £26k or more. Anyone earning £26k or more will pay more tax as a result of the Scottish budget.

    It is a worry. I watched the exhibition and he was obviously hobbling between points.

    Brilliant performance from old man Fed in Shanghai. Pretty much unplayable when he serves like that - with Rafa not really close to even a break point. Still no idea how Fed's backhand has improved so much this season.
