    Not sure mate, can only see the general sale ones for Atlanta which are on sale next week. I’ve been to Hyde Park for gigs a few times so I’m on their mailing list for presales I think. https://www.axs.com/uk/events/441723/bruce-springsteen-the-e-street-band-tickets

    No just through the normal presale, think they’ve still got some left for the Thursday https://www.axs.com/uk/series/15327/amex-presents-bst-hyde-park-2023-bruce-springsteen-the-e-street-band-b-tickets?skin=bst&uk_et_cid=BST-EMAIL-Bruce-BSTPresale-180722&uk_et_rid=1_24905279378189196

    The Amex one is open now but looks like they’ve only got tickets left for Thursday and not Saturday. https://www.axs.com/uk/series/15324/american-express-presents-bst-hyde-park-2023-bruce-springsteen-the-e-tickets?skin=amexuk

    I’ll have a look properly and vote tomorrow. Which means I’m open to bribes in the meantime, anyone insulting Stig will be looked on favourably by me.

    I think you’ll find I posted my (almost) finished team as Holland a full 24 hours before you did, you plagiarising get.

    Irwin was a very good left back but he’s getting compared to some of the greatest left backs of all time in this draft and he’s not in that league. Same way as I absolutely adore Steve Nicol who I picked in my team but he’s not the same quality as Cafu for example. That’s not denigrating Nicol just the truth imo.

    Right, going to have to be very critical to pick a winner because all the sides are great. So... John. Very nice side, well balanced but if I was being very critical maybe a bit too attack minded in the centre. Boban and Iniesta both at their best when allowed to go further up the pitch so could have done with a DM maybe. And not sure on that left back either. Was actually going to start a thread about players who were undoubtedly world class in their day but don't really get much praise nowadays and Figo was one I was thinking of along with Raul and Rooney. No 2. Great six in midfield and attack albeit not sure if Puskas and Gerrard are in their best positions. Think Irwin and to a lesser extent Jennings are a bit weaker than their equivalents in some other teams in the draft but apart from that good team. Dynamite. Front four is a dream and Maradona behind Van Basten is superb. Think Toure is a bit weaker than other centre mids in the draft and McGrain suffers from a bit from not playing in a better league or achieving anything at an international or European level. Very well balanced team though. Going to go with John and Dynamite but not much between all the teams in truth.

    Lizarazu was picked but Andy Robbo would slot in there nicely if you messed around with the decades. I almost picked Batistuta, had to decide between Pirlo and Batistuta or Baggio and Redondo. Other good value picks would have been Hyypia, Henry, Essien, Mane, Zambrotta, Hugo Sanchez (I had him in the side in my head for ages) and Shevchenko.

    I’ll have a look at the sides properly in a bit when I get home.

    Much too full to eat a desert now but they’ll box it up for you to take away. Only problem is managing to eat it without my daughter seeing and taking her cut.

    Back in Lymewood. Greatest carvery going. Got a cheese, potato and onion pie on my carvery. Superb. Also, is there anything more annoying than staff in a restaurant coming up to your table and asking you if everything is ok just as you’ve taken a huge mouthful of food? Fuck the fuck off you cunts.
