Think it will have given the players a lift? Motivation to be part of the new future?

Guess we'll know in 90 mins

I haven't watched much, but one commentator stated how hard he worked giving as an example how PP had been to Australia 21 times.

I wish I'd worked that hard :-)

Bbc Radio is definitely still on somber music, no upbeat stuff at all.

Whether that is until the mourning ends, guess we will find out.

It's eight days of national mourning. He said he didnt want a fuss, christ knows what it'd have been like otherwise.

Where have I said I loathe him? I dislike the institution of the monarchy. A lot.

I dislike some of the people in there, some I have no issue with.

I think he should be remembered in a balanced way, not a sycophantic rewriting of who he was / what he did.

Seems to me you are reading a lot more into my comments than I have made.

I see DW fitness has expired. Any posters got knowledge/recommendations on any others?

Costs, classes, parking etc.

Just got asked by a poster if my view of P.P. would change if I aware of his introducing gift aid.

Couple of points. Firstly, yeah, I hadn't known that and that does sound like a good thing that benefited lots of charities. On a human level that sounds like a very good thing he achieved.

But that doesn't change his role, within an institution of privilege and what it represents. I won't be dothing my cap to him. My dislike of the royals is based on what they represent, not who they are.

And I stand by my point that people should be able to criticise his conduct if they chose. Why ever not?

The small bit on TV I watched on him was borderline stomach churning, making him out to be some super human hero. People of course are welcome to believe that propoganda if they chose. Other's are welcome to challenge it.

Seems to me quite a few monarchists are srruggling with the fact that an awful lot of people recognise the coverage for a 99 year old man is utterly ridiculous.

No. For me, when you can't tell with the naked eye if it's offside, then in old talk, it's level.

Ridiculous that VAR has morphed into something that gives decisions like the one you highlight.

Quick question

Things change relatively fast I guess. In parts of Babergh we literally have no current cases. 3 months ago,, hospitals were sending patients away with bits of kit to monitor their oxygen at home, patients who would ordinarily be in ITU.

So I guess they are delaying their decisions hoping things improve But as it stands today, absolutely sounds like a recipe for disaster, fans criss crossing the continent.

If it were me, think I'd either declare no travelling fans or just bin it all together. Given the stadiums will be capped for capacity anyway, just another thing to write off.

As a student I took a girlfriend to a match on the Sheffield Kop at Bramall Lane.

Two things stick in my mind. Her observation that one of the players looked a bit small (the mascot) and then as the players warmed up she shouted "Come on Wednesday" as loud as she could.

So lawn advice needed.

Scarified back lawn, loads of moss. Then I stuck some 4 in one (one being a moss killer) on and killed a load more. Cut it short, raked out a load more moss.

So happy have got rid of a fair chunk of it. Now got some patch filler stuff, used it on the front lawn lawt year and worked a treat.

Question, best time to stick it on the patches? Dont want to kill it before it takes (with a frost). Presume it'll need watering too.

Any other tips?

Is there no end to the virtue signalling? A candidate for the local elections just posted up he was suspending all campaigning today as a mark of respect.

Whilst I am not a fan of any royals, am pretty sure PP was clear he didn't want a fuss.

Pretty much.

There are a couple of old boys who genuinely would be a "fire risk" if the stand ever needed evacuating in a hurry.

But you get to sit down in between the exciting bits, or for 90 minutes as it's otherwise known.
