  1. I went and it's exam season (only one exam next week though luckily). It was good fun. Freezing though.
  2. Also Elvis Presley's 75th yesterday. RIP the King. Many thanks y'all.
  3. It's alright though because he's had a "great career" and is "nice", unlike every other sportsman to play quite well this year.
  4. I was worried you meant best song played at Boom for a minute there...
  5. Apologies for the slightly contraversial question, but I still don't see what he did wrong? I mean he may be a knob, but even then he was only doing his job wasn't he?
  6. "Play up Pompey, Pompey play up" has to be a close contender.
  7. Blatantly just a split-screen camera trick...
  8. I like the way he didn't reveal the numbers on Wednesday before the lottery, stating it was because he couldn't legally reveal the numbers. That was supposed to be a 'prediction' that happened to be right - not exactly revealing the numbers, considering the draw hadn't been made. Then on tonight's show he has the opportunity to show everyone his team and people watching the show the predicted numbers beforehand when they're all in the room prior to the draw, but instead just rushes off. That way his team can't confirm whether he really did predict those numbers beforehand.
  9. Can't say for sure but I've heard it is, yeah. It's a a Russell group university so you can expect it would be pretty good.
  10. Still seems a bit odd we've won the Ashes when you consider the statistics: Strauss was the only Englishman in the top 7 runscorers in the series (he was first to be fair, but he played the most innings). Eight Australian centuries, compared to two English. Leading three wicket-takers and bowling averages all Australian. Etc. But I'm ecstatic nonetheless. That said I'd like to also spare a moment to thank South Africa for their valuable contribution in helping us win this Ashes series.
  11. Congratulations A-level students. I got AAC last year (yeah I only got a C in English after messing up some exams despite working hard, even though monkeys can do A-levels now ). So I'm now at Newcastle University, having completed my first year studying geography (a fine subject if anyone's wondering...). Nyff I'd definitely recommend Newcastle as a city and it's a very good university also.
  12. Bolt is blatantly a woman tbh.
  13. Must admit watching that on MOTD2 it did put a smile on my face like. He missed loads of chances like that for us, in a 1 vs 1 he's so predictable he just always trys to side foot it to the keepers left. Yeah I think for a "natural goalscorer" he's very limited in how he shoots at the goal. b]Was nice to see him miss that.[/b] Couldn't give a fuck tbph in much the same way I'm not bothered about Martins' goal for Wolfsburg or the string of saves Shay's supposed to have made for Citeh. They're gone man - time to move on. I don't care how well they do - I would have been much more

  15. The BBC loves Obama though and they certainly didn't love Bush. Why is this a problem?
  16. I don't know the exact weather forecast but theres no way we should be batting anymore, getting 400 in an 4th innings run chase is virtually impossible, we already have more than 500, we have to get bowling at them as soon as possible and make sure we get them out. If it was me, and i think Strauss may have done the same i would have had 5-10 overs at them today if it wasn't for the fact the light meant the aussie batsmen would have been able to go straight off, because i think we could have nicked a wicket or 2 tonight and been well set to rip into them tomorrow. If the sun is shin
  17. Ponting shouldn't have been given out, but considering how claims to never walk, I have no sympathy for him.
  18. Good last twicket stand after that dreadful start to the day. 425 all out looks a good score, but not after the start we had. People also keep going about Broad being an allrounder and possibly Flintoff's replacement - well he hasn't got fifty in a year, as well as not taking wickets. At this rate I'm thinking Anderson could be the star of the series with the bat.
  19. I thought Hilfenhaus should definitely have had more overs, he was taken out of the attack way too early. I don't understand why Ponting took him off and persisted with Mitchell Johnson. Johnson absolutely wasted an opportunity with the second new ball. Anyway a draw is a decent enough result. I don't blame England for time wasting. They are absolutely outclassed in every facet of the game. Let them send out a fat bastard of a physio to waste time. Seeing him waddle on then off with his boobs jiggling about was probably the highlight of the test match for me, besides the 4 centuries made.
  20. Yeah it wouldn't surprise me knowing what Man Utd are like with transfers and it seemed to happen quite suddenly. That said Owen obviously realised he'd be at another club, whether it was Man Utd or someone else. Tbh, Liverpool fans didn't give him a great reception on his return to Anfield, with all the "should have gone to a bigger club" crap so I don't think he owed them a return or not signing for their rivals after that. He did owe the Newcastle fans a better attitude though, along with the rest of the team of course.
  21. Am I the only one who finds the thought of an eyelid being removed let alone ripped off is a bit, errr, sickening?
  22. Agree about Pietersen and Cook - think they should have a look at the way Collingwood plays. Pure grit but that's how he can build innings such as today's. People often doubt him but he's been our most in form batsman over the past year or so. If Johnson, Lee etc bowl intelligently (i.e. not like how England bowled) then Cook especially will barely get runs this series because he's got too many technical flaws.
