Re: Films that are ace

Reigniting an old thread to say just how much I love the Greatest Showman. Sure it’s a musical and it was released to pretty lukewarm reviews, but since I first saw it the songs are pretty much stuck in my head most of the day and I’d say that more than anything is the sign of a good musical! Can’t ...

Re: Cycling

See that was one of my first thoughts, having read that the Tour organisers were going to ban him. I agree the timing is convenient. But then I remembered when he won the Giro, strong comments were made by the organisers pushing for a resolution before the Tour de France. Well they got one, probably...

Re: Cycling

Big, huge news today that all charges against Chris Froome have been dropped in a joint statement by WADA and the UCI. He’s stated his innocence from the first accusations broke and has had 9 months of hell. Hopefully he’ll now hit le Tour running and win another. I could not be happier about this, ...

Re: The Computer Games Thread

Mr BB I’m a huge Kerbal fan. Best thing to do is start small, perform science experiments around the space station and on Kerbal first to get enough science to unlock better components. Then go for space and re-entry and finally orbit. From there I’ve managed a mun Landing (with difficulty) and have...

Re: Cycling

Say what you like about him but Froome is making today's stage one of the most spectacular days of racing in modern times (EuroSport's words not mine!) Lone attack, 80km's out, nearly 2 minute gap on the virtual leader Dumoulin (Yates has completely imploded today and is nearly 20 minutes off the pa...

Re: Where are they now?

I too find Rylan fucking irritating but I wouldn’t write a stupid tweet like that about it. Of all the places to work and be irritated by LGBT culture. :doh:

Re: General Election

I compare it to thalolimide because of the reported health risks owing to the chemicals used getting into the drinking water/the water table that would effect everyone in an area. There’s reported cases of drinking water being flammable due to the methane present, earthquakes caused by the processes...

Re: General Election

It’s a very good point B.B. it seems that it takes a perceived slight for people to trawl back through years of social media to find dirt. They did the same to Corbyn, the same to Thornberry. The Labour right have used it to their advantage in the mainstream media for months/years now. Going as far ...

Re: General Election

He’s a very right wing Labour rep with a history of obscene tweets and even anti-democratic actions, like being photographed hand-picking questions that were supposed to be random during the Labour hustlings for the vacant seat in his constituency. To what end who knows but there is a lot of discont...

Re: Cycling

Could the preseason pressure on Froome and Team Sky be finally showing? Performances haven’t been great all spring by any riders, save flashes at times and although Froome usually isn’t at peak performance at this time (peaking for the Tour de France each season) he’s been shockingly poor so far. Tw...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

As things worked out the one game that stuck in my mind with regret is the Bristol game. Literally needed one hoof downfield and the game was over. Could well have been winners not runners up. Ah well, back where we want to be for now. Now to keep building and not do a Bolton, hopefully keep the big...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

I saw first hand one topless yob trying to intimidate the Oxford players, getting right in their faces and Karl Robinson to his credit, confronted the cretin. I like a manager who defends his players. I believe he grabbed him by the throat before a security guard separated them. Probably get fined f...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

Guys I’m driving to Ewood today for the game but the last time I drove through was a poorly attended midweek game against Scunthorpe in the league cup and parking wasn’t an issue. Any tips on where the best places to park are? Also is there much to do around Ewood now? It was desolate a year or two ...
