    Yeah, it's quality. I know you don't live up here but I'd really recommend PK Barbers in Seaton Deleval. Just don't call them Turks though as they're Kurds so hate them.

    Think I might get a OnePlus 3T when my contract expires next month. Galaxy S8 looks lush but I can't justify the monthly contract price.

    Too much time worried about Palestine ffs. Obviously there's blame on both sides but people like that who can't see the wrong in what Israel do need a reality check.

    For sleep cycle do you still have to have it lying under your pillow or whatever? That's what put me off previously.
  19. Bread making.

    There aren't really that many quick methods if you're getting rid of the bread maker, but hand kneaded bread is much better IMO. You're also more in control of your own ingredients. You can make the dough the night before and let it proove in the fridge if that's what you're after for the next day. If you do go down the oven method Parky my little tip is to spray the top part of the loaf with a bit of water, as this way you'll get a better crust. I also put a pan of water in the bottom of the oven as the steam means there's less chance of the bread drying out. Get yourself a pizza stone too.

    Second part of Simon Reeve's Turkey was outstanding. Loved how he delved into the rise of Islam within a supposed secular state as well as looking into some of the Kurdish struggles.

  22. Rafa Benitez

    There's some dodgy as fuck links between an agency in France and most of the players Carr brought in as well.
  23. Rafa Benitez

    Martin Hardy thinks he's staying. Rafa Benitez is set to stay at Newcastle next season, with the club on the brink of an immediate return to the Premier League. Newcastle moved 10 points clear of third-placed Huddersfield at the top of the Championship table with their 2-1 victory at St James’ Park yesterday, with just seven games left in the campaign. Benitez will be handed the funds to strengthen his squad in the summer and looks set to retain the same level of control he enjoyed following relegation, when he was allowed to rebuild the first team squad. The move will be enough to convince the 56-year-old that he can build on the success he has enjoyed in his first full season at the club, thus ending the interest of West Ham, who lost again yesterday at Hull. Benitez has told friends he is happy at St James’ Park, feels wanted and believes the club can grow into one capable of challenging for a European place over time, if the correct structure is in place. The Spaniard had been undermined in the January transfer window, when moves for Andros Townsend and James McCarthy were blocked. The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Valencia manager believed he would be given the finances to continue rebuilding the side, following relegation last summer, after raising £30 million in his transfer dealings. However, increased involvement from the chief scout Graham Carr and the Newcastle owner Mike Ashley led to major concerns about whether Benitez would see out the remaining two years of the three-year deal he signed last summer. The Spaniard was deeply unhappy at the unforeseen change in control at the top of the club. Previously he had been given the final say on transfers, along with the managing director Lee Charnley. That provoked suggestion he would leave at the end of the season and he refused to commit beyond this campaign when he was asked at the start of February. However, he is set to regain the control that proved successful last summer, when Newcastle overhauled their dressing room, and raised almost £90 million through the sale of players, including £30 million for Moussa Sissoko and £25 million for Georginio Wijnaldum and spent near to £60 million to fashion a squad that now looks set for promotion.
