  1. An appeal has been set up: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/archerfire (From the justgiving page)
  2. If you know the name of the bank, google XXXX Fraud department and this should bring up some contact details for advice.
  3. The power of Sheffield Forum strikes again!
  4. There's a story about local dressmakers making scrubs for the NHS, but to find where to send donations... That's right, it's behind the paywall. So here it is: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/scrubs-supporters
  5. Bottom three at the end of the season: Crystal Palace 27 points Sunderland 26 Wednesday 25 Another difference in those days was that Goal Average was used rather than goal difference. Goal average means the number of goals scored divided by the number of goals conceded. The end of season goal averages were Crystal Palace For 34 against 68 GA 0.500 Sunderland 30 68 0.441 Wednesday (actual) 40 71 0.563 Had Wednesday won the last game 1-0 then their GA would have been 0.5797 - still better than Palace. Crystal Palace was a much longer trip from Maine Road.
  6. In those days the gate money was split and so City would have picked up a nice amount. It wouldn't have cost that much to get over the Pennines so many would have made the trip.
  7. Would it be feasible to excavate behind the station and create 2 new platforms (9 and 10) and put Sheaf Street traffic above this?
  8. A few years ago I drove past the house where i grew up and saw it was for sale. I obtained a brochure and saw how much it had been changed. Whilst it is interesting to see a former well-known place, I'm sure it can be boring if there's someone with you. Three years ago I visited a town where I used to spend my school holidays. I'd not been back for 25 years. There's another place I've not been to in a much longer time. Google Streetview can be very useful!
  9. Nothing to stop you getting a second opinion.
  10. I seem to recall the canal had this quality some time ago.
  11. Talking Pictures TV are showing this March 2nd at 6am. It will be subtitled. It's a film from 1949. From IMDB:
  12. Is it really bright orange or is this just a pure Fanta sea?
  13. I think this is the way ahead. See https://www.itm-power.com/h2-stations Nice to see a local firm (!!) leading the way.
  14. I don't want to disappoint everyone but according to a post on Twitter:
  15. It's not the first time their hooligans have attacked our trams.
  16. The lighting equipment was outside Ice Sheffield when I went past on the 15th.
  17. A sandwich shop called Toilet Rolls?
  18. Isn't it a bit early for Leeds to make a dash for the play-offs?
  19. He didn't know my Sky account number which is hardly surprising as I don't have an account. As for telephone numbers, I think he was using some software to generate random phone numbers.
  20. I've just taken a call from a gentleman purporting to be from Sky advising me of changes to the insurance on the Sky equipment he thought I had. According to this gentleman the monthly cost I'm paying is £11-99 a month, but there are changes afoot. They are reducing this price to a mere £90 but it has to be paid in one go. Or there is the second option of £160 for two years. Which option would I like? When I said I had a third option he seemed surprised at this and asked what it might be. I told him the third option was that he was talking a load of tripe (other offal is available and was used in this case). He apologised for bothering me and by means of compensation offered to send me a free box which if inserted as he suggested could prove painful, so I suggested he save postage and use his own orifice for the purpose. I then put the phone down.
  21. At one time over Easter teams played three games on (perm any 3 from 4) Good Friday Saturday Easter Monday Tuesday (and with smaller squads and muddy pitches).
  22. The kick off was delayed for ten minutes because of VAR deciding whether to hold a minute's applause.
  23. Final home game of the decade sees us 6th in the Premier League. I think we'd have taken that back in July.
