Re: The athletics/running thread

Just as I was getting my running mojo back, I have been laid low by an insect bite of all things. The ‘wound’ has become infected and I now appear to have a cankle and club foot! Hopefully, the antibiotics prescribed start to kick in and I can get back to it next week. A Pound to a pinch of shit sa...

Re: General Chit Chat

The Guide dogs association have labradors up for adoption who have been house trained but just failed to meet the very high standards to be a sight dog. I'm sure they'll have some young dogs that would get along great with Paddy. Might be worth rehoming your cat though, just to be on the safe side ...

Re: Tonight's Football

Arsenal played a friendly against Charlton today. They put the highlights up on social media. Its so weird watching them play in an empty stadium - ignoring the tired old jokes you all make about the Emirates noise levels :roll: the quietness and the empty seats was really weird. I wonder how long ...

Met plenty off here, referred to by BP's daughter as his 'football boyfriend'. Damn straight, you were! We’ll always have Liverpool and our time in that shrine of a club!

A hot & humid 5k last night. Hard work, but definitely getting easier.

Rain forecast for the next couple of days. Hmmm! ☔️

BP I'm surprised you haven't done more as it's barely rained in the last two months. :)

Decided I don’t like to run in dry weather either!

Re: The athletics/running thread

Managed to get 60K in for May, was aiming for 75 until slipping on last Monday's run and pulling a muscle in my back. Been in fecking agony all week with it but have woke up this morning and it feels a thousand times better. Will try to start June with something short, flat and gentle tomorrow. I’m...

Re: The athletics/running thread

The revival of this thread might just inspire me to get my arse in gear. A combination of injuries and way too much food/drink during lockdown has left me badly out of shape.

Re: Tonight's Football

Premier league has a come back date and we will be able to watch Arsenal get spanked by Man City on the 17th June as they are all going to be on the box. Son number 1 is so excited about watching football again he says he doesn’t care that we will lose... :crazy: I’m not quite at that stage myself ...

Re: General Chit Chat

Just looking on the site of that Look After my Bills bunch (who were on Dragons Den). They're telling me that I can save £277 a year with Utility Point, if I switch from NPower. I'm guessing here that changing energy supplier's going to be as straightforward and transparent as trying to cancel a gy...

Re: Don the tin helmets and Plough on regardless, AFCW (A) 7/3/2020 3pm9

Well I thought we played ok ae:) We were easily the better team in the first half. About even in the 2nd. I do accept that a (another).season of shite has significantly lowered my expectations. My main concern today was our support, the quietest we've been away all season with very few staying to c...

Re: Diving Arsenal Players - The Least Shocking Admission Ever

Moved up to the dizzy heights of 9th today. I do think Arteta is going to be the man for the job. I wasn’t sure at first but I think we’ve got a good one. Off to watch my first game with him on the bench Thursday . :D Do you think you'll get on? :wink: Pretty sure Mikel would value my extensive wis...
