Let's hope the board stays civil on your birthday.
Yeah I know...SUQ.

Seeing Oldsmoker's reply to a thread earlier got me thinking. What do you retired folk do to occupy your time? Genuinely interested as retirement is not too far over the horizon.

Exactly how long do I have to wait for that 'bouncing football' to stop bouncing and let me paste my voucher code in?! I thought maybe doing it two days before KO might just speed things up a bit...

The top Clubs pay more than that for one player.
Personally, I think there should be rules in place that state that 10% of any transfer fee in the top flight should go into a fund to support Clubs in the lower leagues. I could do Rick Parry's job better than him...

Great goal and great assist yesterday. Fantastic performance, and he's really making some of his critics look a bit silly so far this season. But I'm sure they'll be back if he makes a mistake at any point...

Last weekend my missus was involved in an accident. Her car was stationary, waiting at traffic lights on a dual carriageway roundabout. A truck on the other carriageway shed it's load, and a large gas cylinder bounced off the road and smashed into her car, leaving a gas cylinder-shaped dent in her front wing and drivers door. Had she been in the outside lane it would have been higher, and quite possibly would have smashed through the drivers door window and...well, the consequences don't bear thinking about.
Anyway, police state that she was quite clearly blameless, and the driver of the truck admits liability. I would suggest that as the load obviously wasn't secure, that he had been negligent.
Insurance claim made, and photos of damage sent to insurance company. Phone call on Sunday from Admiral, and they say that the car is a write-off (based on photo evidence). They wanted to collect the car on Monday, but we put them off as the car is still drivable and roadworthy. A phone call to their legal department (covered by insurance) and they state that as she isn't physically injured, there is no claim against the other driver. However, we all know that the sum offered will not be sufficient to cover the cost (and inconvenience) of replacing her car with like-for-like.
My question is: Is it correct that nothing can be done in terms of compensation to make up for any discrepancy given the clear negligence involved?
We have since had a private estimate for repairs which comes to about Â£500. The car (VW Touran) is worth around Â£3000-4000, so writing it off seems ridiculous. A phone call to Admiral and they have now agreed for us to get an estimate from one of their approved repairers, which I am sure will be more but hopefully not enough to make it uneconomical to repair. If they still do declare it to be a write-off, what are our options in terms of getting a pay out and keeping the car/repairing it ourselves?
Any advice gratefully received. Cheers.

...at left-back. Those who were worried about him getting up and down the pitch should be reassured by his first few matches.

Mind blown. But I guess he isn't a kid any more. Well, his son is, but you know what I mean...

...might want him to get a transfer? And what advice do we think he might be giving Flynn in this respect?!

Let's hope there's a little bit less angst on this board. Good performance yesterday with some very promising passages of play. COYB!0

I'm sure there are people on here willing to make mountains out of any molehills you've got...

...I'd be worried, and rightly so. But it wasn't. So I'm not. But the usual suspects are getting their knickers in a twist - which seems to be their favourite pastime. Oh well.

I had a look to see if I could find Fishers' plot, but alas it would seem that it is still lost...
