  1. I know this could be unpopular but I genuinely don't think you can get away from the fact that Lennon's background as a Northern Irish Catholic is a major player in all this. Yes, he is clearly passionate, sometimes aggressively so, but so are plenty others. It is a thing that's always there, a dam waiting to burst in certain supports, and when he shows his passions, it erupts (mixing my metaphors). No, not everyone who gets wound up by him is an anti-Catholic bigot, clearly not, but it's there looming large as an issue. It needs called out, this is an opportunity to properly tackle this.

    It was a penalty in my opinion.

    Some terrific strikes there I haven't seen in years. But my favourite, I think, is the turn and deft chip against Watford. Thing of pure beauty.

    If you look again at what I wrote, I agree right now he’s better! I’m simply saying I strongly disagree that McGregor is a significantly better keeper than Gordon. I think they are both good, right now McGregor deserves the nod.

    I agree he's the man in possession, has done nothing wrong, is performing well and should therefore start. Your second sentence, however, is silly.
  6. This could maybe go in the travel section but it might fit in here too. Anyone used Viagogo for tickets? I was a bit naive and used them for tennis tickets in Paris. Now all I'm reading is they're very dodgy. I know I paid over the odds for them and I'm resigned to that but I'm worried about them being legitimate. Anyone had any experience? And if potentially not kosher, is there any way I can check? I physically have the tickets now, they were sent via UPS today. Is there a risk we will get turned away? Cheers.

    Paris Masters

    Hi, Anyone any experience of buying tickets for tennis tournaments, especially Paris Masters? Missus big tennis fan and wanted to get tickets for her 40th in November. Not bought for anything like this before and don't want to get ripped off. A look online suggests public tickets not available till September but how do I ensure I can secure two then? There seem to be sites selling now but not sure of legitimacy and if too expensive. I know loads of you buy for overseas events such as this so may have tips. Help appreciated.
  10. I love seeing all this moon stuff. Read a couple of books on the 12 men who went. Sad to see them start to die off. To think that humankind has looked up to that object in the sky for hundreds of thousands of years and then these guys had the opportunity to walk on the surface. What an experience! Mankind's greatest achievement and a signifier of our potential. Would be great to get back on topic. Can Huddersfield et al continue posting their memories and sharing the images they find and stop wasting the thread arguing with crazy folk? 😃 I was just too young to experience the excitement of watching the missions at the time. Great stuff.

  13. So the wee man is two and very good at his animal identifications. Problem is, whenever he sees a gorilla on tv or in a book he insists it's a monkey. The question is, should i continue with telling him he's right and hope he understands the distinction in due course or be tough now and insist he gets it right? The missus keeps saying well done and I want to scream, "a gorilla is not a monkey, its an ape". Similarly with camels and dromedaries.
