  1. My friend who has a disabled blue badge for parking has tickets for the Boxing Day match at Hillsborough. Is there anywhere close to hillsborough that has disabled parking. Mobility wise we need to be no more than a few hundred yards to the Kop Any info on parking near to the ground would be most appreciated Thanks in advance:)
  2. Iranian folk music being played live in the living room next door by an Italian/Iranian folk band...toe tapping stuff
  3. Hi My friend who has a blue badge for parking has tickets for the Boxing Day match at Hillsborough. Is there anywhere close to hillsborough that has disabled parking. Mobility wise he cannot walk more than a few hundred yards therefore we need to be as close to the Kop entrance as possible Any info on parking near to the ground would be most appreciated Thanks in advance:)
  4. All depends on the squad selection and who is fit to play this summer. We need Flintoff back and fully fit. Is the bowlers Jones back up and running? Would like to see Vaughan have a better summer with the bat and press for a test recall England have a chance but would have to play to our fullest potential but I expect the Ozzies to squeak it
  5. If Murray wins a grand slam it will be more likely to be the US Open - the courts suit his game and he has made the final before His game is progressing on clay and grass - his serve and movement need to improve on these surfaces to reach a major final
  6. The final meeting for the Sheffield City Battalion display has been organised for Thursday 25th June at 7.15pm - it is open to all who are interested in the pals Please bring with you any materials Hope to see you there:thumbsup: ps The Sheffield Pals course will be running again this coming Autumn at The Circle in the city centre.

  7. Sheffield has produced good artists...who would you rate as the best out of the current crop? I nominate Paul Staveley...great wildlife artist
  8. As is mentioned above - the Scots teams have Euro places and all the money that comes with that. The other side of the coin is how much revenue would they make away at Dunfermiline against an away fixture at Old Trafford? There has been more talk of the big two coming south of the border but that they would start in the Championship rather than the Premiership. They could easily break away from the SFA - the Premiership was quite easily established outside the remit of the FA If Celtic and Rangers looked southward, think it would be the Championship as a starting point?
  9. Now that is a one great idea you have there Commander...hope you don't mind me calling you Commander We need to give such a revolutionary programme a title...Mmmm...let me see...how about ....'Strength Through Joy'? Snappy title...think this one's a runner Commander? Plus we could have special 'holiday' camps set up for all these activities - like Butlins but with a bit of work thrown in....with snappy slogans on the gates like.....Mmmmm....let me think... 'Work sets you free'....run with it Commander:thumbsup:
  10. I thought my idea was much better....just had a catchy tune:) Any chance of the moderators merging this thread with the swine flu thread?
  11. You need a theme song for your party Try this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGp0hCxSg98
  12. Patriot Party - great idea Will you be wearing arm bands? Giving right arm salutes? Growing small funny looking moustaches? Walking in an exagerrated form? Virst ve take Sheffield...zen ze..... You could'nt make it up:)
  13. People have the democratic right to protest peacefully. The police are the servants of the state not the masters The head of the IPCC has stated today that officers on the ground disobeyed senior officers orders not to hide their identities The claim is that the senior members of the police force cannot control their own officers An innocent person has died as a direct results of the over aggressive police tactics Over 90 people have claimed assault as a direct result of police actions When the Guardian pursued the Ian Tomlinson story - every other newspaper merely carried Jade dying stories or the official line that the police were under constant attack...nonsense In a seperate incident - a whole village was sealed off when counter terrorism officers arrested a few hippy environmental protesters who were hell bent on running around the grounds of a power station and were intent on putting up placards - you need armed counter terrorism officers for that? The police who raided the environmental protesters also hid their identities - against direct orders Recently, police entered Parliament without a warrant to arrest a House of Commons official - that is also against the law ....and you are not worried by all of this? For evil to prevail, good men must say nothing
  14. Can I take the opportunity to recommend a tradesman to fellow forum posters. Through the forum, was able to get a repair done to my bathroom and toilet Speedy service and a reasonable charge D.B.R.C tel 07940452427 he on 24 hour call out. ask for darren
  15. or being savagely batoned from behind and then pushed head first on to the concrete Perhaps Ian Tomlinson would be alive today if the policeman could have read your signature Solomon? I sincerely hope there is not a serious attempt to sweep this under the carpet like the De Menzies case. I hope Ian Tomlinson's family will get their day in court...the little comfort that represents
  16. The question is a point of law...is this discussion too difficult for you? If you walk down Fargate and strike someone from behind, who in no way, has provoked you and they fall - hit their head on the ground and suffer a heart attack. The CPS would recommend a manslaughter charge. The intent is not there therefore it would be manslaughter No one is above the law...absolutely no one my friend
  17. I am not nor have I ever been a cowardly thug...thank you and goodnight:thumbsup:
  18. An unfortunate but CORRECT summary. The guy was on his way home after his shift in a newsagents and he gets hit from behind by a policeman, who incidentally his concealing his identity. The policeman did not mean to kill the man but the fall from the unprovoked assault led to the man suffering a heart attack. This would appear a strong case to answer for manslaughter The police stated that the man: 'died of natural causes'....lie 'immediately treated by the police and paramedics'... lie Well done to the Guardian newspaper who have pursued this story with great vigour:thumbsup: Final thoughts are for the family of Ian Tomlinson
  19. List here............... http://www.futebolfinance.com/en/os-50-maiores-salarios-de-jogadores-de-futebol-20082009/ Those are basic deals - the figures do not include bonus payments or merchandise deals with the club. Plus there are fees for international duty - plus personal endorsments/advertising/merchandise ranges/image rights etc....
  20. As part of the WEA course: The Sheffield Pals and The First Battle of The Somme - learners from present and the previous course are constructing a small display in the Central Library on Surrey Street to mark the pals at the Battle of The Somme. A number of people have kindly agreed to spare some of their time and expertise to the project. Sheffield City Library have set aside a 8'/3' display board on the library staircase from the 1st July to the 18th July for us to commemorate the pals story. A number of people have suggested a mosaic design that tells the story (in pictures or square tiles of text) of the pals from volunteering to their first action on the Somme. A local professional artist, Paul Staveley has been approached to take part in the project and he has kindly volunteered to design and paint the central lettering for the display, plus labels for each part of the story. If you wish to take part or contribute in any way to the display - we are having an informal meet up to at the Red Deer pub (Just off West Street) on Thursday, 2nd April at 7.30pm to discuss the display over a pint - Possible items to discuss could include: * Precise wording for the central lettering * How to 'chapter head' each part of the pals story * Collecting materials for the display * Types of materials to include on the display * Liaising with the local press - radio incl. * Constructing the display * Recording the construction process * Someone to write a short piece for the WEA website about the display More details can be found on the blog at: http://sheffieldpals.blogspot.com/ I would welcome your ideas and expertise on any of the matters above. Thanks - I look forward to seeing you on Thursday the 2nd
  21. Great post - can I add something also on that theme.

  22. The truth........well, George was born in Palestine, which makes him a Palestinian but a Roman citizen. His father was a Roman born in Cappadocia and his mother was originally from Palestine. George is the patron saint of Malta, the main patron of North Ossetia, patron saint of Lebanon, Patron Saint of Genoa/Lithuania/Catalonia, patron saint of Georgia, reverred in many Indian provinces, the main saint of Portugal (which was later adopted in Brazil), he is reverred in Serbia, the principal saint of the Aragonese in Spain and celebrated in various other countries. You don't have to be left wing to see that St George was not an Englishman - St George's Day is a global, multi cutural celebration. If you want to pretend he was English that is up to you but it is not the truth my friend
  23. We can celebrate St George's Day - it is our and other countries and other faiths patron saint. However, as you rightly point out, George directly has nothing to do with the English until his myth was incorporated into French/English culture in the late medieval period - as England was a French satellite country at the time. I do find it a little odd that these people are always claiming you cannot celebrate St George's Day or display a flag or something similar. This is all a bit silly - there is no one stopping people doing this - perhaps this just happens in their minds. St George's Day is a multi culture and multi faith celebration across the globe - we should celebrate that
  24. Mmmm........celebrating St George's Day - ...well, George was born in Palestine, which makes him a Palestinian but a Roman citizen. His father was a Roman born in Cappadocia and his mother was originally from Palestine. George is the patron saint of Malta, the main patron of North Ossetia, patron saint of Lebanon, Patron Saint of Genoa/Lithuania/Catalonia, patron saint of Georgia, reverred in many Indian provinces, the main saint of Portugal (which was later adopted in Brazil), he is reverred in Serbia, the principal saint of the Aragonese in Spain and celebrated in various other countries. Yep... I'm up for celebrating multi culturalism
