It was obviously a huge success judging by how often you've repeated it. ;)

We're all to lazy/busy/skint to travel over to Manchester/Blackburn. :(

We went to Villa (worst game ever) and Burnley after that I think?

Sheffield - Manchester is only like an hours drive anyway over t'hills.

There is something very wrong with this comment. The wheelchair shop is a 5 minute jog away.

That's true as far as it goes, but as soon as you get the additional piece of information that I actually don't drive and Charlie would be dropping me off, it immediately makes it very right again.

I've been to Cambridge as a prospective student but didn't find the atmosphere particularly friendly. In fairness I didn't get the grades for it ever to be an option

Yesh indeed! :hyper:

I suppose Jim's attendance depends on whether he's finished watching the Schindlers List directors commentary by then...and whether we've quarantined Doncaster to prevent the spread of Scottishness. :yeahright:

Yes, yes I'm in and there will be much rejoicing and quaffing of ale (or alternative fruit-based alcohol in my case!)
