Re: Ipswich Town v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 4 August 2018, KO 15:00

Obviously reducing the discussion to 2 players is a bit daft... but surely Armstrong is the pick. Chapman has been more injured than not for the last 2 seasons... not that he isn't worth the risk, but not a safe bet either.

Without Armstrong and Chapman our attack is considerably weaker than it was last season. I think we'll struggle. 14th/15th would be my guess.
Probably, but I'm feeling optimistic... plus we could still sign Zidane.

Re: Cycling

No... But fair play to him... Must have taken a lot to change his riding style and body shape. This hasn't been like Wiggins in 2012 with a TT heavy course to suit, he has been the best climber in the field and possibly had a little left in the TT as well. Agree about final stage TT... In the right ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

It's also worth remembering that the players are investments for their parent clubs... Even where they don't fit within the short/med term plans the club will be looking after ROI.

It's a crying shame that a few small clubs hoard the majority of the young talent, but such is football

Re: Cycling

Looking like not... Thomas has been pretty impressive thus far... seems odd to think he'd have been pulling Froome up the mountains if it wasn't for the loss of 50 seconds in the early stages.

Dumoulain could still just about do this, but has been looking like Thomas since the Alpe stage.

Re: Calling all parents

For what it is worth... my personal parenting buying history. Good Slings - seriously a life changer... couldn't recommend enough. As a result we barely used a pram / buggy with our first. Started with a stretchy for newborns ... and moved onto a buckles carrier from around 12 weeks to 15 months. Th...

Re: Calling all parents

It's probably easier just not to crash. We have had non-isofix for both so far... the first one we didn't have the anchors in the car... second we couldn't find a rear facing toddler seat to fit in the back of a micra that had iso-fix. It's not something I'd worry about too much... I found fitting i...

Re: Cycling

Although mud adds extra weight... On mountain stages I'd recommend not being muddy. Also don't wear clogs.

Re: Cycling

the two sky riders did well, but it was disappointing for virtually everyone else. Valverde's attach was audacious, but his time loss shows he probably doesn't have it in him any more. Yates hasn't repaid the faith that MS have shown in him, and Caleb Ewan must be pretty pissed. Dumoulain was the ri...

Re: 2018/19 season kit.

Notice a few people with the new kit on Twitter which appears to lack a sponsor... 6/10 for a sponsor less version

edit: children can't have gambling sponsors I guess. :doh:

Re: 2018/19 Season

'Mas Que Nada' by Tamba Trio.. in fact - I'd throw the classic Brazil airport advert on the big screen... will be the perfect preparation for watching 2 championship teams knock 10 bells out of each other and clog it up and down the park on a wet november evening.
