|Biggest question for me last night is why we needed 3 CBs and Skuse|
at 12:12 12 Feb 2020
It was, in effect, five defenders (inc four centre halves), one holding midfielder and Huws playing alongside him. Flat, uninspiring formation leading to a flat, uninspiring display. All the time while Dozzell, Judge watched on.
Quite why we couldn't have substituted one of Skuse/Huws (or sacrificed a defender) when we brought Keane on, I'll never know.
Lambert's "rock & roll" football is more "easy listening" day-by-day.

Wouldn't you take their player in every one of those instances (apart from maybe Jackson over Dembele, possibly)?
Think you'll see how they're rated in their next transfer values.

Was at the SCG when Steve Waugh scored a century in the afternoon against England in 2003, getting to 100 off the last ball of the day. Taking him past 10,000 Test runs and equalling Bradman's century count.
Was at the MCG to see Shane Warne's 700th Test wicket in 2006.
At the Oval for Alastair Cook's last Test innings.
And jimsymBLUE reminds be that I was at Trent Bridge for Broad's crazy morning

Funnily enough, I see that steward every match and was going to speak to him on Saturday as he was on the pitch at Oxford in '92, to advise him he's on every clip that's shown of that day.

Was that the model that was stuck outside Stratford, full of passengers, for 5hrs yesterday?

I have spoken to Nicholas. Big fan of Mr Jolly (referenced below). Approx 20yrs ago, got home from the pub, watched it on VHS for the umpteenth time and for some reason, emailed Nicholas' agent to see if I could get an autograph.
Forgot about it.
Monday morning, got a call on my mobile. It was Nicholas Parsons. Had a good chat about Mr Jolly; he said it was the one thing that he was quizzed about more than anything else. I ended up sending him the VHS sleeve which he dedicated and signed, along with a signed photo to my wife and I.
RIP Nicholas "Bloody" Parsons
