|Who was our most ‘natural goal scorer’ over years?|
at 20:00 12 Jul 2020
If you're spreaing the net further, then I would suggest that Robbie Fowler beats both Linekar and Owen in terms of being a natural goalscorer.
Owen was a decent finisher but it was his pace that set him apart early in his career, Linekar was a pure finisher but still in my opinion not at Fowler's standard.
Too young to remember Greaves, but family have always said he was clinical.

I would have said Fish N Chips as you're including things that aren't crisps, the salt vinegar were eye wateringly good in terms of flavour, however they seem to have changed in the last year or so, probably cut down on salt or something and aren't a patch on what they were.
Pringles are pants, expensive pants.
Pickled onion monster munch are satisfyingly dirty, Brannigans Roast Beef and Mustard are very good.
|How much trust do you have?|
at 22:58 9 Jul 2020
About anything? I feel like virtually anything I read now or hear through the media I have to do my own fact checking before I can actually give it any weight. Even stuff said to me by friends and family, who I would have trusted implicitly at one time I now tend to take with a pinch of salt most of the time unless I know where they are getting their information from.
I'm sure I am getting more cynical as I age, but I do feel even ten years ago if I read something there was likely to be at least a semblance of truth or facts involved, now the balance seems to be the other way around.
Is it just me, or do other feel the same? For those over say 30, do you feel it's a lot worse now than it used to be even taking out the obvious fake news and social media cr4p that gets posted as facts?
Maybe I'm just turning into a bitter cynical old man slowly, but it does get a bit wearing at times never being able to ever take anything at face value.
|New away kit is interesting|

Marmite for me, I think it's absolutely foul. The kit, not marmite, I love marmite on toast.

Agree with that, enjoyed his input and thought he grew as it went on. There was a dodgy time when Aggers couldn't get his 'equipment plugged in' and there was a lot of dead air but yes on the whole a welcome addition.
Despite the conditions and the damp around the pitch actually looks quite dry underneath when the batsman are tapping and scraping, might be very tough to bat on in a fourth innings.

what a surprise, it's raining!
At least TMS is back to give the day some soothing background noise.

I would have thought there are very few professions that don't have a similar group attached to them, the fact they happen to be veterans shouldn't be any different to if they were former bankers, or road sweepers, nobody should label a group by a few mindless morons.
What's more worrying is the fact that most professions probably do have a group like this, shows what a long, long way we have to go as a country.

Thanks for the advice (and code) all, I'll have a shop around and see what I can find.
I'm well aware of the journey, I used to drive up to Scotland once every couple of months and spend a week or so visiting customers. My best time was coming home one Friday, left very early and did Glagow-London in a tad over seven hours, also had time when it took literally twice that.

I'm sure I've seen some suggested links on here in the past. Driving a bit of a cr4pper these days that I don't really trust for long distance treks, thinking about hiring a car later in the year to go visit family in Scotland.
This means mileage limitations are not ideal, anybody got any reccomendations? Thinking about a week's hire, probably medium sized, ideally comfortable.

I'm going to side with the majority here, and tbh I rarely move beyond red but the only real downside to English Wine is the pricepoint, there is some real quality there you just pay a bit of a premium.
There's a reason why so many of the Champagne houses are buying up land over here, it will be fascinating to see how they label it once they start producing though.
And to SB, we tend to keep a Nero D'avola we both like as our house red, beyond that our tastes diverge. I don't generally spend a lot on wine though if I'm absolutely honest, but I like a nice* Rioja or a Cab Sav with a meal, she prefers something lighter.
* By my own standards, which tend to equate to less than a tenner a bottle, any more is wasted on me anyway.
|Mogga doing a brilliant job at Blackburn|

I think that's about right, I don't think we've ever missed a trick with Mogga, he's just never wanted to come here, possibly never will.
|What's your player profile?|
at 17:00 19 Jun 2020
What it should say, and what it really says?
Swashbuckling fullback with cultured right foot, ferocious in the tackle.
What it really says
Stodgy fullback, strong defensively but not to be trusted with the ball.
|What is the worst... British county?|

I think Kent is very, very over rated. The Thames estuary area is a dump, much of it is outer London and most of the rest nothing special.
Garden of England my 4rse!
|RFU reviewing the singing of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot|
at 09:55 19 Jun 2020
That context is a load of old bull though, somebody's made that up at some point. It was being sung long before Oti played, if not on the same scale, it's like the story that gets repeated that it was originally sung for Martin 'Chariots' Offiah, again it goes back further than that.
If it upsets people, people who have a right to be upset by it then by all means attempt to stop it.

My old man had an Interceptor Mk111 when I was younger, it was quite a thing, not seen one on the road in years. It weighed an absolute ton (or two) I know this because there was an intermittent electrical fault that caused us to push it home a couple of times.
First car was older than me and one of these
Worst car was a Hyundai Lantra which was a cheapy when I needed a car quick, driving it home there was a downpour and rain started pouring in round the driver's door.
Best car, I've owned one of these for 18 years now, and I still love it. My ex wife used to accuse me of loving it more than her, don't think I ever replied
Dream Car? Not sure really, quite fance a Tesla but have always regretted not buying a Lotus Elan when I had the chance, so would quite like to rectify that and have it as a summer car.
