  1. I'm sorry, but my over-riding memory of Maradona is that the man is a blatant cheat. There is no doubt that he was a talented, gifted player, but to compare him with Pele (as some of the press have done), is pointless. One of them had a career without any controversy, the other cheated and then basked in the glory of cheating. I know which one I would like my grandkids to have as a role model.
  2. Don't kn ow about recently but I went to have a look last year, and there was a bloke fishing top 2 plus 2 using 4 mm expanders and catching loads of silvers.
  3. Thank you. The link doesn't go anywhere at the moment, but I will keep trying.
  4. Hi all. A friend of mine is after a top2 kit for his Shimano Technium XT Competition 12.5 mtr pole. Can anybody point me (so I can point him) in the right direction. Thanks in advance
  5. Can anybody remember the name of the engineering company in Stannington village, on the left, going from the Sportsman. Been racking my brain for 2 days which is far too long for my brain to be racked. T I A
  6. It's heartbreaking for the fans who pay out their hard earned money to watch talented players (yes there are some) suddenly become strangers to their team mates, to their talent, and to the people who are paying their wages. And not just once, it's week after week. Hope they didn't have a guilt ridden sleepless night.
  7. So with all the excitement about who the singers could be, we've so far had : an ex soap actress ; an ex politician : an ex footballer, and somebody from a pop group. Those who are expecting Kylie, Elton, Alfie Boe etc should lay down in a dark room for a while. (p.s. just used google to find out the unmasked ones. . . . . . . . . would rather watch a blank screen)
  8. Turned it off after 3 minutes . . . . Wish I'd turned it off 3 minutes earlier. The latest in a long list programmes where z rated celebrities are desperate to find work.. ----- Celeb baking, celeb baby sitting, celeb farming. . . . . . and now . . Celebrity Karaoke. . . . Dire & Crap, but not surprising.
  9. To follow on the poetry theme: Two games won, six points to us But don't get giddy, don't make a fuss. If we win every match we may just go up, And there's also a chance we could lift the cup.
  10. From Wikipedia....... Cahill was born and raised in Dronfield, Derbyshire and attended Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School.[4][5] He was a boyhood Sheffield Wednesday supporter and grew up watching Sheffield Wednesday, and points to Des Walker as his childhood hero.
  11. Totally agree. I don't mind a bit of bragging rights, it's to be expected. But if there's 2 people who just want to contradict everything that the other one says, can you do it privately as it's not that interesting to the rest of us. I suppose that's the problem with a draw. It limits the bragging rights, so we finish up with the forum equivalent of "ner ner na ner ner".
  12. Got a different sort of Private Car park problem. Sis in Law is a blue badge holder. She went to Asda and parked in a disabled bay. When she went in her bag for the badges she discovered that she'd only got one badge, the one with the clock. She displayed this on the dashboard. When she got back to the car she found a Parking Eye charge notice for £40. On the ticket in the "reason for issue" box it said "failure to display BB". So I have some questions about this. Do Parking Eye have a legal right to charge for not displaying both Blue Badges? Are Disabled bays in a private car park legally enforceable? Should we appeal, including proof that she's the owner of the "offending car", that she was the person shopping at Asda at the time, and that she is legally entitled to the blue badge? Any advice on how to proceed would be welcome Thanks
  13. Let's compere the Owls with the other lot. Goals against... us 21... them 21. Goals for .. us 23.... them 32. Now there is no way anyone can convince me that United's strike force is that much better than ours. I feel that our midfield are programmed to do a slow, possession build up, which might be good as far as successful passes go, but always lets the opposition get back. Where's the quick, defence splitting pass ? Opposition teams know exactly how we play, and despite having some very good strikers, we are frightening nobody. I'm not saying play it the Jack Charlton way, but we should at least mix it up and keep the other teams on the hop.
  14. They don't ring a bell for me except for Rhys Gibbon, who I know from another site about Pitsmoor.
  15. I was at Ellesmere at the same time as Robert & John Oxley. I was in Mr Albaya's class, and I think Mr Eliis's class as well. I was mates with Stuart Hackett, Alan Wasden, John Whitworth, and can remember Ron Fox, Wendy Smithson, Leslie Farrell, Jacqueline Glenn, Susan Cross, Christine Stagg. Not sure if all those names are correct.
  16. Asking for a friend: Having a private function in a pub in town and looking for someone to provide pie and peas. Does anyone out there have any contact details for a good pie & peas provider. Thanks
  17. Well I fish a lot and there's no such thing as razor sharp "fishing wire"!
  18. How refreshing to see a player sent off in a cup final for blatant cheating. His dive was so obvious that people on the back row could have seen it. It cost them the cup, and rightly so. And with retrospective punishment coming next season we may see less of it. Just wondering which team have the most prolific divers / cheaters. Chelsea have quite a few
  19. Lord of the Rings trilogy, Back to the future trilogy, Blues Brothers (both) Die Hard 1 & 2, Total Recall (the original).
  20. Anybody fished No 5 pond at Aston recently. If so, how's it fishing? Planning on taking grandson next week, but want him to get a few fish. He's 15 and not a newcomer to fishing. If the snake isn't fishing we could always go on the little No 4 pond. Thanks in advance.
  21. Yes you're right, annoying voice and totally unfunny comments.
  22. Still not watched any more after the first one, but the list of presenters is so strange. Presenting a show like that requires a specific talent. So why give the job to people who so obviously don't have that talent ? David Walliams ????? Gordon Ramsay ????? It's like asking Michael Parkinson to do a 20 minute stand up comedy act, or show us how to cook Roasted guinea fowl breast with dauphinoise potaoes, wild mushroom foam and a truffle jus. Of course the programme producers will refuse to accept that this programme is a failure, based on an American idea, and a total waste of time and money.
  23. And they obviously tell the contestants to get excited and make lots of comments. Some of them are trying so hard to make the programme interesting with their "oooh, oh yes, oh hard luck".
  24. Maybe I'm becoming a grumpy old sod, but there are certain people on TV whose voice really sets my teeth on edge, (like fingernails down the blackboard). Regardless of whether or not they have any talent, some TV "stars" make me want to destroy the telly as soon as they start to speak. In no particular order my pet hates are: Keith Lemon (yes I know it's a comic character) Alan Carr Danny Dyer Rylan (don't know his surname and don't care) John Bishop Jeremy Clarkson Janet Street Porter. I'm sure other forummers will come up with names that make me go " Oh yesss him / her as well".
