Re: What are you watching tonight?

I binge watched The Queen's Gambit over the weekend. Recommended. Not your blood guts and gore nonsense. Just........good. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Currently absolutely loving Llilyhammer - loads of dark humour, marvellous stuff. Came as a complete surprise to learn that the guy playing the lead, Ste...

Aye agreed on brockbank. Overlapping full back he aint
And just finished off our best move this half by simply twatting it one into a forest of legs. Awful.

Gilkes is no better than Crellin.
Now come on, we've all had a drink... :D
Not since NYE, Chief 😉

Seriously, when the bloke who's in as coach can't catch a harmless ball then we really are in Dicky's meadow (ok, maybe not as bad as Crellin but far from adequate 😉)

Re: The athletics/running thread

First ‘run’ of the year tonight. Nothing to write home about. Short and slow. However the chance to compare home schooling woes with an actual adult human whilst we take 1-1 exercise suddenly means running becomes a far more attractive proposition. Enough about you. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it :) H...

Re: Season 20-21

I can see the season not being complete...so that late charge to the playoffs needs to begin a bit earlier in my opinion...realistically making sure we have enough points to not be dragged into a relegation debate is my hope. Perhaps one for DSB and his encyclopedic knowledge of such matters, but d...

Jones Santos Delaney Brockbank

Re: General Chit Chat

Struggling to remember what day it is between Christmas and new year. It’s weird enough at the best of times but in tier 4 with nothing to do and no one to see it’s even weirder. Being an introvert I’d quite love it if I was on my own, but with 3 young bored children it’s hard work. Have played mor...

Re: The athletics/running thread

How are your feet LE? Anyone got any grand athletic ambitions for next year? Mine involve the usual eat less junk food, do more exercise which I will probably fail at before the first week of January is up. I’d also like to see myself high up the age rankings in triple jump as a V40 which was the s...
