  1. "A boy's best friend is his mother"
  2. This time 4 years ago, we were looking forward to the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.

      Hope we get to see some football, no GB team so probably not.

      Where did those years go? JesusĀ 

  3. I noticed it yesterday evening how dull it was at 9pm. The sun hadn't set yet and cloud added to the effect but it was a hint of what is to come.
  4. One of the greatest films ever made.
  5. Funny coincidence but Root went passed Asif Iqbal, Mushtaq Mohammad and Imran Khan in the Test runs list during that Old Trafford Test and he could go pass Hanif Mohammad, Majid Khan, Saeed Anwar and Mudassar Nazar by the end of the Pakistan series.
  6. Being a weather historian, I have to question personal memories. Yes, they are good for general recall of events but with the rose coloured glasses effect. I use a summer index . Worst summers for Manchester 1954 143 1907 147 1956 155 1912 156 1924 158 2012 164 2008 168 1987 169 1946 170 1909 171 1931 173 1978 173 1980 173 1920 174 1923 174 2007 174 1927 175 1948 176 1938 177 1922 178 2011 179 1985 180 1958 184 1972 185 1916 188 1986 189 1965 189 1910 190 1936 190 1988 191 2010 191 1966 192 1998 192 1953 193 1963 194 1993 194 2009 194

  8. autumn

    No thanks, at least not the November part of it. That was a terrible month.
  9. Root has now passed Trott and Flintoff in the England Test run list.
  10. Bad decision. What if they go out to bat again and the day is interrupted by showers? Any time take out of the rest of the game is only going to be a detriment to England. At least with Pakistan put into bat again, they are there when the weather eases off. But with England batting and the weather is interrupting whilst they are batting, the question becomes how many more runs, when do we pull out? At the time of this post, there is a sharp shower just falling.
  11. I live 7 miles to the west of the ground. A little shower went through but it's a lot brighter, bits of blue sky.
  12. Not sure why they haven't followed on, they were nearly 400 ahead! Funny enough, Cook could declare now and leave Pakistan to get 400.
  13. This brings back memories of these type of storms that can happen around Perth. From 14th November 2015
  14. Yasir gets a double century as well.....
