    For someone who really enjoys playing sport of pretty much all kinds, I am terrible. So it's a shame to see a great pass away. RIP Elgin Baylor

    Scenes in Film/TV That You Can Recognise

    Certainly used to be the case at times.
  3. Maybe it was an age thing, with CD singles marketed at the 90s kids (like me, getting my first CD player in like 95), rather than older fans of bands. I always kind of assumed that once I could afford to I'd buy albums more than singles anyway, so always thought that was the way it worked. You'd go into music shops back then and they'd have the same charts singles as Woolworths, but loads of albums I couldn't afford but loved flicking through before picking a couple of cheapys from the bargain bin. So finding the latest single from any band not in the charts must have been a pain in the arse anyway (unless they were in the new releases section).
  4. Think singles sales jumped once CD became the main format as they were cheap to produce and buy. Albums used to still be £15+ for some bands, but the latest song was often a couple of quid. MP3 did the singles chart in.

    What’s your favourite quote ?

    "Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome." Samuel Johnson From a note on my monitor, the objections in question generally being the internal monologue that stops me from getting on with things... slightly better than a "Stop overthinking and get on with it you lazy cunt" one.

    Jan Transfers (Closes Thurs 25th 7pm)

    Don't think it's really a gamble. I either go without for half a season and expect one player to play every game, or I pick an undrafted player for cover. Both are pretty unsatisfactory and the result of bad luck and (not entirely) random chance. Basically double jeopardy, not only do I lose this player this season, I'm pretty much forced to lose him for the next two as well. But I look forward to the post 30 seconds into the summer transfer window saying someone's nabbed him.

    What’s your favourite quote ?

    “One of the commonest and most generally accepted delusions is that every man can be qualified in some particular way -- said to be kind, wicked, stupid, energetic, apathetic, and so on. People are not like that. We may say of a man that he is more often kind than cruel, more often wise than stupid, more often energetic than apathetic or vice versa; but it could never be true to say of one man that he is kind or wise, and of another that he is wicked or stupid. Yet we are always classifying mankind in this way. And it is wrong. Human beings are like rivers; the water is one and the same in all of them but every river is narrow in some places, flows swifter in others; here it is broad, there still, or clear, or cold, or muddy or warm. It is the same with men. Every man bears within him the germs of every human quality, and now manifests one, now another, and frequently is quite unlike himself, while still remaining the same man.” Tolstoy

    Trent Alexander-Arnold

    Good for him, I think he's a distant fifth best out of the options available (and even then I'd be considering getting Lamptey committed to England before giving him the call - he appears to be, but obviously could still go for Ghana at the moment).

    That's Rocky IV, the series had fallen to self-parody by then. Even if it is a really fun movie. Rocky is a film about hope, people in poverty getting to shoot their shot. Suffers from people comparing it to other more gritty and nihilistic films of the time, but it's a totally different kind of film. Much more sentimental, and not in a bad way whatsoever. It's a 10/10 in any year. Taxi Driver being too heavy for the Oscars, even in the 70s, is not the fault of Rocky.

    Whereas teams release players that get injured all the time? Okay, Junior Firpo please.

    Jan Transfers (Closes Thurs 25th 7pm)

    Yeah, I was confused as well. So my only option is to let Mendy go for a far inferior player (as no-one's going to loan me a left back)? Can other players then pick him up, even if I'm only looking for a temp switch?

    Who have you exchanged for the loan?
  15. Yeah, but Yellow Submarine is generally on another level to a duff track no-one ever listens to isn't it? One of the most famous melodies out there.

    Yeah Rocky 4 would probably be the one, as the non-score songs define it even more than the main theme. I was thinking of Paris, Texas too, think that's just on the acceptable side of the line. Although don't think Goblin's work Suspiria would be, despite pretty much being the same deal... it's a grey area.

    Vaccine - Hands In The Bucket...

    You're right: Boost for vaccine campaign as 15-minute observation not needed after Oxford jab | GPonline Think the SW region has been doing it in all cases, as I was asked to in Exeter and I believe Taunton had it in place too. That makes more sense, the Exeter one I went to was out of town at an events centre. Can't imagine many people went there that didn't drive. Parents were told if they weren't driving they could leave earlier too.

    5 minutes? Thought you were meant to stay for 15 minutes in case of allergic reaction. Anyway, yeah, I'm done. AZ.
