  1. In Memoriam

    Sad news. Seen AC/DC a couple of times. Back in Black tour early 80s in Bristol and more recently at The NEC in 2009 or 2010? They were the last band to play the old NEC before it got refurbished.
  2. Premier League Discussion

    Dreadful. Defending out of Spurs' past! Without Alderweireld Mr V looks lost and how Ben Davies gets in the squad i'll never know?
  3. Flu prospects this winter

    Absolute tosh! The nurse should be sacked and struck off.
  4. In Memoriam

    Yes i think she was the last surviving female pilot from WW2. She was inerviewed for Beeb's Rememberance Sunday programme on last Sunday but guess that interview was recorded weeks before.
  5. Grandparents ruining their grandchildren?

    Yes the Nanny state in full flow. Our grandson is with us regularly for w/e sleepovers and usually rules our roost when here - we wouldnt have it any other way. And we pick him up from school every Wednesday. Always gets a sugar boost after school from some sweets. But he always wolfs his dinner/tea down at 5. He gets more treats than i ever did as a child but then we have more disposable income than my parents ever did. Stuff the nanny state - he is in the hands of the Brit 'old school'
  6. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Ireland did 'a job' on Eriksen the other day and were smug about it. But....... as the old saying goes "Form is temporary, class is permanent" Next stop for Eriksen? The Emirates on Saturday....COYS!!
  7. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Great finish from The Spur!
  8. I refer the honourable NW members to the post i made 'earlier' (and last year...and the year before...and so on)
  9. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Italy wont be in Russia. Watched the match and Sweden basically did an Italian Job on Italy. If there is one team, other than Italy, who can play for a draw when needed it is the Swedes.
  10. Island. Atlantic. Gulf Stream. Weather from a Westerly direction 85% of time. Default weather pattern for our tiny islands. Reality. And there endeth my annual weather-related post (posted around this time of year most years).
  11. NW flow late November, with the North and its higher parts at risk of wintry showers.......isnt that bulk standard late Autumn weather for the UK?
  12. EFL Cup And The Emirates FA Cup Discussion

    The last great squad was 80s. 2 FA Cups and 1 UEFA cup. Crooks, Archibald, Hoddle, Ardilles, Hazard, Perryman, Clemence, etc. (Of course early 60s squad will prob never be beaten). But the current team/squad has to win a trophy or two to come near the 80s team imo.
  13. EFL Cup And The Emirates FA Cup Discussion

    Never mind! Ex-Gas here. Used to follow Rovers from childhood, home and away but lost interest many years ago (in terms of going to matches) but it never leaves you. A cheer at final score when Rovers win and a cheer when City lose
