Football Cryptic Quiz... SPOILER ALERT!
at 19:40 16 May 2020

A few days ago someone asked for ideas for football related quiz questions and I suggested questions in the form of cryptic crossword clues. So I thought I'd give it a go. Here are ten which I think are not too taxing (but I know the answers!)

Please don't post the answers on this thread but if you pm me with all or most of the answers I'll give you a name check when posting the solutions tomorrow some time.

They are not all Ipswich specific.

1) Flower of Scotland top 70s striker. (5, 4)
2) Encourage South London team. (5)
3) Curly headed striker is under landlady, partly. (10)
4) Cop takes on manager. (5, 6)
5) PL's worst team can raise havoc. (8)
6) Scottish club confuses narraters. (9)
7) Paddy sounds enthusiastic. (5)
8) Blue clergyman is after ladies' underwear. (5, 6)
9) Butcher grocer and also Town's baker (10)
10) Greensboro or perhaps Wembley hero. (5, 7)

Answers now appear a few posts below

Talking to Oneself...
at 09:41 30 Apr 2020

I do this a lot.

I am on my own a lot (as a lorry driver)

I converse with myself, argue, tell myself jokes (and laugh at the punchline if the joke merits it, especially if I haven't heard it before), sometimes tell myself off.

Are there people who don't talk to themselves?

Telephone Kiosk
at 14:43 3 Apr 2020

I am in the Port of Felixstowe in their holding area, waiting to go forward and lift on my container for Monday.

About 20 metres away is a glass sided phone booth. The phone within is a direct line to 'Customer Support' and is there to resolve drivers' queries.

I have just watched as one driver was using the phone and two others queueing at a safe distance from each other. Then as each driver finished his call the next one stepped forward and, without hesitation, raised the phone to his mouth.

If the first were carrying the virus then, in all likelihood, the others will soon be showing symptoms.
