    Music. Do you play?

    I played various brass instruments as a kid but settled on BBb Bass & was qualified to professional standard (Grade 8 & had offers to turn professional with a couple of top brass bands & an offer to tour Japan). I couldn't be arsed though because they rehearsed the same night as Huddersfield played their (at that time 4th Division) midweek home matches...as they say, what a shame youth is wasted on the young. At the risk of sounding like a burned out old footballer though, I did a couple of gigs with a local band a few years ago & in spite of being 30 years out of practice, I still had it 📯

    Watching darts always reminds me of this.

    eBay question

    I hardly ever use eBay nowadays. It long-since seems to have stopped being what it was & almost anything I'm looking for the first however many hits are all in China with several weeks delivery or other big sellers...based on what folk are saying, that probably means they are prioritising big sellers in listings. Gumtree works a lot better for me.
  4. To be fair, this thread was started by Kimba, a Maddog alter ego, as I recall to shift this off other threads. Unfortunately, rather than any sort of debate, I think we get evidence for evolution on one side, broadly met by Biblical cut & paste plus excerpts from 'Now That's Why You're Going To Hell 2018' on the other.

    Car Insurance..

    England not Scotland obviously, but I have a Mazda 3 as well & pay just under £400/year (me & Mrs H on the policy) fully comp, I think with around £250 excess for accidents.
  6. A guy on the radio the other day described Queen as the West Ham United of music; sometimes brilliant, sometimes dire, but mostly just mediocre.

    That’s a whole month’s worth of his Facebook updates fecked up then.

    BT

    I live in an area that is in the 10% slowest in Britain (no cable supply, just ADSL from a local exchange a mile or so away) so my experience may or may not be helpful depending on your circumstances. I used to use a company called Zen Internet, who were always decent, especially their customer service. I moved to Sky a few years back to save a few quid, which was a big mistake as they just kept putting up their prices & customer service was non-existent. I moved to EE a few weeks ago. I haven't needed to use customer service so no idea if it's any good, but I did notice an immediate improvement in speed & reliability. It definitey is all affected by your own specific circumstances & connections though.

    Manchester

    That's not a bad spot really; you're more or less midway between Piccadilly & Victoria, with a fair few tourist spots in walking distance - National Football Museum, the Lowry, Turing memorial, etc. If you're at all into politics (left-leaning anyway) The People's History Museum is brilliant. You'll have no trouble finding eating & drinking spots. Just like I say, be aware you can easily end up paying big money in that part of the city.

    English football

    If it was a penalty then we should have had at least 3 (oddly none of which appear in any highlights in case they upset ex-Spurs tw@t Lineker) & your average football match would have about half a dozen.

    I'm not sure if this belongs here or on the 'Get it off your chest" thread, but yesterdays game p1ssed me off beyond belief. None of this crops up on the TV highlights (of course) but the referee (Craig Pawson) showed such stunning big club bias it was beyond belief - laughing & joking with their players, even allowing coaching staff from Spurs to walk halfway around the pitch to talk to their players. Their first goal came from a break after the sort of challenge on us that they were being given all afternoon, then he ignores a clear foul right on the line of the penalty area on our lad to go unpunished, Spurs break, Danny Rose (at best) gets farted on in the box, at worst dives...penalty. We only started getting any sort of decision when it was obviously game over. I'd never actively want my team to get relegated, but there's a big part of me thinks that at least back down in League 1 you got crap decisions because the referees were crap, not that they were actively behaving in favour of a particular set of teams.
  12. Aside from the odd one or two, I have a programme from every Huddersfield game I've ever been to, which is a fair few considering I've hardly missed a home match in 20 or so years, rarely missed a match home & away before I moved away for a few years, have seen them on over 130 different grounds & so on. I have a dedicated cupboard (well, 2 tbh) for them. My wife tries to persuade me to get rid every so often but I remind her that divorce is a lot more expensive than £3 every week or two.

    As with any big city, it depends a bit what you're into. The area around Picadilly has loads of restaurants but a lot of them are trendy & pricey. There's a few cheaper spots near Victoria station - right opposite the National Football Museum is a centre called The Printworks which has half a dozen or so chain-type places. That's my usual stopping off spot for a fry-up & early morning ale on Manchester away trips. Some of the pubs that serve food in the central area are good but don't half overcharge. At the risk of sounding like a typical Yorkshireman, I've heard that the Gay Village area is supposed to be a good spot for a night out, but I've never actually been there 😶 I know quite a lot of people who have though - there's a memorial to Alan Turing there anyway.

    Liverpool

    I can't add much to the tourist/nightlife suggestions, but if you're looking for a pre-match pub, I went to the Flat Iron last season which was decent enough. If you prefer a more traditional approach, about 100 yards down the road there's a petrol station & around 50-60 lads necking Carling on the forecourt.

    English football

    Millwall are generally a bit of a parody of what they used to be these days, although their 'boys' will show up for certain games, Leeds no doubt being one of them. I've seen us win league games down there & get away trouble free. The old place was a totally different story - really horrible, nasty place to go (1980, 2-1 defeat, is currently I think about number 3 in my list of near-death experiences) I went down there for a play-off semi 2nd leg in 2010 & (not just because we lost) it was bloody awful. We spent about an hour on the coach having the windows banged, cockernee boys coming up giving it large, all the fun of the fair. It was genuinely a scary experience as you never knew if one of them might just go that bit too far. There'd been a load of trouble a few weeks before at the league match at our place as well:
