  1. Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. - John Wooden (famous American UCLA basketball coach) He’s a very interesting person who is a legend over there but very little known in Britain. Particularly famous for his motivational quotes and helping his players as people as well as sportsmen.
  2. Thanks for the advice - funnily enough we had pre-planned the visit to see the recovered sunken ship in Stockholm and the ride to Rostock. I’m not sure what expect from the Hermitage visit other than we have chosen the excursion there with the most freedom possible. It seems there is more to do in St Petersburg than we could hope to fit into 2 days. We have chosen the Hermitage and the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood with a trip on the river to accommodate my father fitness levels.
  3. Currently getting on well with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. Didn’t realise that it’s essentially a series of novellas that were once serialised in the paper. Great for those who just want to dip in and out of something.
  4. Read and enjoyed that one. It inspired me to have a go at Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell.
  5. Congratulations to Manchester City on winning the league. I’m not sure I agree that it was won and lost against Everton and Manchester United, as we took 8 points out of 12 against those teams. If anything, the decisive games were the head to head matches with Manchester City. To be honest in a season where you accomplish a points total of 97, it is very hard to say that more could have been done with the squad that Liverpool have which I think is why Anfield gave them such a great ovation yesterday at the end. Onwards now to the Champions League final.
  6. Got a few lined up for a two week Baltic cruise - a bit of an eclectic mix: The Girl On The Train (Paula Hawkins)* Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine (Gail Honeyman) War and Peace (Leo Tolstoy) Straight Outta Crawley (Romesh Ranganathan) The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Conan Doyle) Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson) Sashenka (Sebastian Sebag Montefiore)* *Audiobook There’s no chance I’ll get through them all, but I like a choice just in case for whatever reason something isn’t up my street.
  7. Howzat! Geoffrey Boycott appears on MUTV for the Manchester United players awards ceremony and suddenly starts slagging off the team and performances in the latter part of the year! This is not the kind of truth that in-house football club channels are used to dealing in!
  8. I think you’re right and there’s definitely vested political interests at UEFA on this subject.
  9. I believe UEFA are playing both ends for the middle re: the dominance of the Premier League clubs in European competitions. On one hand it is being decried as a bad development for club football, but on the other UEFA are preparing the ground for the prophecy of the European Super League as a means of competing for the non Premier League giants. That in itself would be the new golden goose for UEFA, if the mechanics of it could ever be properly worked out.

  11. Especially the original Karate Kid montage!
  12. Haha, funnily enough it seems much less important!
