I lived there 20 years ago but haven't been back for over 10. I'm taking my partner and her Mum so have the classic things already booked in. I'm wondering if anyone has been recently that might be able to recommend something I don't know about. Suggestions welcome, smartarses need not respond.
... on the "troubles" I use that word as that is how it is best known. If you have any interest in this period of time this is an excellent insight. Probably similar in depth to Ken Burns style of documentary with talking heads from all sides and previously unseen footage some of which is quite shocking, if sadly unsurprising.
Cricket holds a special place in my heart because my grandad seemingly always had it on the tv or the radio. I love listening to it for the gentle comfort of nostalgia, but watching that has made me love the game in its own right.
Nail biting, enthralling stuff. Just wonderful :-)
This is a comment from the guardian, it's how I remember cricket as a kid. I'll freely admit I shed a tear.
What a wonderful day what a wonderful game. Ben Stokes I think you're great 🤩🤩🤩
I think we all need to be a little more patient new signings to come in. Keane if properly fit is a real asset. A new full back is handy. We haven't lost this season, Norwood has another. From where I'm sat as an armchair fan I'm relatively happy.
... that was some fine cricket. Shakib is a lovely little batsman. I'm glad we won comfortably against them. I'd love to see them sneak into the semis. Off to the Bangladesh v Afghanistan game on Monday and hoping to see him score a few runs.
A great way to start the cricket World Cup. Archer looks worthy of his inclusion after all the fuss. Even though none of our batsman took there chances to get ton there was plenty of solid scoring. The wicket didn't seem to play the way it looked but it made for a competitive game between bat and ball. I feel its worth adding that England's fielding looked in a good place today.
