  1. 2018 Winter Olympics

    Men were thrashed by USA. Still could get into the semi finals but not sure if they need a play off first or if they'll sneak in on head to head or something?
  2. 2018 Winter Olympics

    Looked like two or three of them could have been penalised to my untrained eye but most of the time it's all been her own fault for not getting to the front quick enough or trying to go through gaps that aren't there.
  3. FA Cup 2017/18

    Maybe being whoosed here but I've heard that phrase for many a year now, mostly in relation to a deep lying midfielder getting ahead of a winger or full back on the inside and creating a different angle of attack. Not sure if the ref was going to give a yellow or if he's one of those refs who records bookings etc. on the back of the yellow card? You sometimes see a close up of a booking on TV and they have spaces on the back of the card to mark who has been cautioned rather than an old fashioned notebook. I've also seen one or two refs use a round red card and a rectangular yellow card. Colour blind or something maybe?
  4. Milan

    It's not in the city centre but when we were there in the summer we loved le Scuderie dell'Astroanuta in Genoa, near the World Trade Centre. Anywhere that looks like the locals eat there and does trofie al pesto con noci (twisted pasta strips with pesto and walnuts) will be a good bet. There's a few places near the aquarium if you're staying centrally and won't have time to head too far out the way, but you might pay a bit more with it being more touristy. There are also loads of wee alleyways that look sketchy on first look which are worth investigating. Every now and again you stumble across a palazzo of some sort. It's similar to Venice in that a wander around is a good way to spend a day. Despite having my phone nicked in Genoa, I had a great time there and the food was really good almost everywhere. If your lady is into football as well, there's an FC Genoa museum neat the aquarium that's worth a wee hour or so visit.
  5. Queens v Pars

    Don't think I'll bother this time. A shame as Iquite like the trip down to Palmerston. 3-1 Queens, AJ to say we were the better team despite it not being true.
  6. Rugby - Union And League

    They would rather support their local club side and there were squabbles about which venue they'd use etc. is my recollection.
  7. Random Matches You Are Going To...

    Nice front cover on that programme. Chapeau to Peebles Rovers.
  8. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    To add to the Sean Dundee stuff, he must have played for a German side v Hearts in the UEFA Cup around 1999 or 2000 as I remember their team training at Heriot Watt. One of my mates managed to grab a word with him and he went on to the coach and got all the players and staff to sign something. Probably a jersey or some such. Stuttgart seems to ring a bell for some reason - they had a white shirt with a red horizontal stripe I think? Seemed a nice enough chap.
  9. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Got all the pub quiz ones right - or at least I would have if I hadn't mixed up by current and former world leaders. Stupid mistake.
  10. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    Isn't he going to take a left footed in-swinger?
  11. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    5 again. Consistent but ultimately relegation bound I fear.
  12. Rugby - Union And League

    So much for having as many neutral refs as possible. They could have at least had a non Irish TMO surely?
  13. Favourite quirks of Scottish stadiums.

    The TV cameras actually look straight at that stand but they don't often have an angle that shows the third tier due to the camera gantry being quite close to the pitch and the roof overhang blocking most of the seats. You can see it on some wide shots though, especially on the far left of the screen. In Germany, Dynamo Dresden are toying with the idea of adding a third tier to their ground even though it's an enclosed bowl. It'll hang from the roof at some mental angle that probably wouldn't pass H&S codes in the UK.
  14. Rugby League

    Was going to like that then remembered that I don't actually have Sky Sports anymore. Oh well.
