  1. Saw that theory on the BBC live text basically saying that Porte made Movistar do what sky wanted by pushing them to push the pace on.. Not sure I believe that. Froome marked the guys he had to, his teammates bombed after a previous hard day. Time trial on Wednesday should add to Froome's time advantage, can't see him being beaten, although a shortish course so he won't build up too much of a lead. Would only get interesting if it rained.
  2. Thought you needed a shout out to get the profile up. The post made afterwards in your defence are hilarious.
  3. Quite high. He'll be shagging his sister/cousin/aunt/grandmother. Still, he's getting his hole.
  4. My vote didn't count. Get low flying again son
  5. Can't understand this. Some clubs have three kits with players generally using 1 maybe 2 shirts per match. Probably about 60/65 kits to be named/numbered with a minimal commercial return for the D1 clubs. Seems mad to me.
  6. 1. Ric 2. Ad Lib 3. Xbl 4. Vikington 5. The Real Saints Sorry I don't do DM's generally.
  7. Is the entire music soundtrack Mogwai? It's superb.
  8. The wee alchy bint. Another classic 'I don't give a shite' storyline.

    A massive inconvenience for commuters. Gormless over 50's not understanding the event queuing system at central. Boo! Fucking boo!

    Game of Thrones

    Ah good point.I'm a book reader but I starting reading after season 1.. I see the flaws in martins writing. It's way too much stuff to comprehend on the first read. There's sub-sub plots that don't seem to pay off, the volume of past mixed up in present and the stand/stop to get characters into position for certain set pieces. The TV show gives the opportunity to tighten down the sheer volume, although seasons 3 and 4 will be just book 3. I liked the way last nights episode dealt with things. It was coherent and almost almost linked up some of the character threads in a so close so far sort of way. All on all pretty happy and roll on ep 10.

    Game of Thrones

    Hear what you're saying, but beyond the name jokes, there isn't that much of interest about the freys and the TV show hasn't bigged up any of them particularly. I wouldn't have been bothered about more own the stark banner men either, with Theon gone, and Roose there, that's plenty enough.Agree that Arya and Hound could have been developed more though.

    Game of Thrones

    The strength of the TV show is it edits out the worst of martins ramblings and is more tightly scripted. On last nights I was pleased with the other scenes with Dany, Arya and Jon. But what a last 15 minutes. I read the review on westeros and was surprised with their review, rather than link and spoil, I'll let you find it. Did they expect the robb stuff to be a whole episode?

    Doctor Who

    Richard E Grant who played an alternate doctor on radio plays.
  14. Fantastic Victory. Great to stuff the 86 ers!
  15. A guard got a head wound, a head wound in a protest over flying a flag? Sheesh.
  16. Sean Batty's tweeting about it being over paisley and west parts of Glasgow right now. Haven't seen any myself.
  17. The Lion at Bay - Robert Low Second part of his Kingdom series on/about Robert the Bruce and the wars of independence. 8/10.
  18. I reckon that many of those posting early in the thread between February and the summer months weren't that bothered by the BTC. The revelation of the EBT's and who got them and for what amounts were interesting, but the BTC seemed to never be coming to a conclusion and after the liquidation, it seemed HMRC weren't getting the money from anyone anyway. The liquidation and its after effects were the main interest for me and the handling by the authorities. Today's ruling is interesting but unless the liquidator is going to try and recall the loans or the HMRC are after tax from the loanees, then there's little else to it. Whyte must be shaking his head today as it was unnecessary to pull the PAYE stunt and look into the pre pack newco.
