  1. There was a real tense atmosphere in Glasgow that day the game felt tense and subdued. Saw a few bits of bother but had some banter with some genuine England fans. From memory on telly we dominated the second leg Christian daillys header still haunts me

    Yeah - i had also banished from memory hitting the bar and the Gallacher miss from the first leg until seeing the clips.

    As for trouble, i didn't personally see any, but for the away leg, i was always in areas of "heavy police presence". Had a chat with some of the "non thug" England fans too - and they were all thankful that they had somehow managed to get through. So close yet so far.

  2. I liked V, for those who have seen both-is it better or worse?

    I think it is better so far. They are 3 or 4 episodes in now, i've seen all until Sundays. I like the way they started after the invasion, and they are starting to give a little of the backstory - but not too much. It definitely has a chance to become a good show.

  3. A Chicago - Philly final would be just about the most horrible thing I could imagine. I better get used to it though.

    Looks like your nightmares are 1 game away from becoming reality.

    Also looks like i jinxed the Sharks.

    Hopefully Philly win, as then there will be another parade for a winning team, making it 2 in the 3 years since i moved there.

  4. First time in 35 years a team has come back to win from being 3-0 down in the series, an absolutely unthinkable achievement by Philly.

    I think it shows that you should never go 3-0 up against the Flyers. Great comeback from them - and they are a team with a lot of injured stars too. Should be an interesting final, but if you are a Sharks fan you must be rubbing your hands with glee at all the bigger teams who have lost in the East. Could this be the lowest seeded Eastern conference final there has ever been?

  5. What BBQ sauce do folks use or anyone have a good recipe to make one??

    We use this recipe for our ribs:-

    2 pounds pork baby back ribs

    1 teaspoon ground black pepper

    2 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (not mesquite flavored - we use Kraft honey bbq)

    1 jar (8 oz. size) cherry jam or preserves

    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Additional salt and black pepper (optional)

    Turn this recipe into a puzzle! [click]


    Trim excess fat from ribs. Rub 1 teaspoon pepper over ribs. Cut ribs into 2 rib portions; place in crock pot/slow cooker.

    Combine barbecue sauce, jam, mustard and 1/4 teaspoon salt in small bowl; pour over ribs.

    Cover; cook on LOW heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until ribs are tender. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve ribs with sauce.

  6. We have one and love it. There is a great Ribs recipe that we always cook in it, the meat really does just fall off the bones, and the sauce is fantastic. Mostly we use it to make stews and things, like everyone else does, and the last thing we make a lot is a "triple chocolate hot chocolate" - especially in the winter.

    I'd definitely recommend everyone that enjoys home cooked food to buy one.

    p.s. thanks for that chicken and bacon recipe reina, thatll be the next one i try :D

  7. Interesting ones. Ronnie has a very tough start and im interested to see how Hendo does in this match. Stephen LEe found a wee bit of form so that could be a potential upset.

    Neil Robertson World Champion 2010.

    The Stephen Lee vs Stephen Mcguire one is also interesting as haven't both been embrloiled/accused/involved with games with irregular betting recently?

  8. See the Flyers won last night. Pretty good. The guy Carcillo seems to be able to get under opposing players skin quite easily. A few Toronto players wanted to have a go at him.

    There seems to be a lot of nastiness between the 2 teams. I only watched the first period, but Caracillo did an excellent job of getting the 4 minute penalty, then after the Mapleleafs had managed to hold off from giving up a goal, Orr (Who got the penalty on Carcillo) went straight back into the penalty box for another penalty. The Maple Leafs were very poor in that first period in terms of discipline, and with only 1 goal it was disappointing really for the Flyers. They held on though, and are still in that battle for a playoff spot. Don't think they will go far however.

  9. I watched the odd game on ESPN and enjoyed the olympic final, but not got a team as such so not that much interest for me. Most of you guys seem quite passionate about the teams you follow, how did you end up with these teams, I've tried to find a reason to support someone but as yet Calgary Flames are the best I can do because they're nearly Claret and Amber (well their website linked to NHL seems to be anyway)

    Who should I be supporting, might make me watch more games if I've a team.

    Philadelphia Flyers.


    Their "goalkeeper" is called Leighton.

  10. I think even Hendry has said he's the best at one time or another. His temperament is the only reason he hasn't won more world titles.

    And because of that temperament - he can't be considered the best ever. (at least not in my opinion). Best raw talent - there probably isn't a doubt.

  11. Philadelphia are probably the Leafs' biggest rivals from the U.S. It goes right back to when the Flyers were still a relatively new team, and even in 2003 and 2004 the Flyers beat the Leafs in the playoffs.

    Ok, i was just shocked - i had just finished telling my mum about the fact there isn't as much fighting as there use to be - and 19 seconds into the game a fight breaks out.

  12. Well, just back from the game, and the Flyers thrashed the Maple Leafs 6-2 (was even more comfortable than sounds). More than that, there were at least 5 fights in an ill tempered game - for those that know more than me, is there any history between the 2 teams?

    Anyway, was an enjoyable evening and i'll post pics when i can get them onto my computer.

  13. Lesbian Vampire Killers 0/10

    Quite simply one of the worst films ever seen. Persuaded by mates to go see this film at the weekend on the promise of cheap laughs and even cheaper lesbian action. A grand total of zero laugh out loud moments, and even failed to deliver any nudity, vioence or decent lesbian action of any sort. It was never going to be more than average fare, but it failed to even deliver a storyline. Horne and Corden are two of the most overrated personnel on this planet. Their 'hilarious' gags consisted of calling each either hysterical rude names + swearing alot. £7.40 to see this pish at the Bath Odeon, thats how much the bloody film cost to make :angry: . If this is my only worthy contribution to society then so be it. DO NOT SEE THIS FILM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!! Thank you. :)

    :lol: :lol:

    You paid 7.40 to see a film called lesbian vampire killers. You deserve the film you got.

    Last film i watched was Righteous Kill. A pretty disappointing film really, but always going to be. Far too obvious what was going on to make up for the disappointment of not being as good as a film with De Niro and Pacino should be. 6/10.
