  1. Spy in the wild, BBC1 - fascinating wildlife programme where robotic animals are sent into habitats to film undercover, from within. The penguin bit..... flippin' hilarious!
  2. Really well summed up Jeff. He was an extremely passionate, loyal and trustworthy custodian of a number of teams and these characteristics appear to be in short supply these days. In latter years, I always found him to be an interesting and insightful summariser on the telly/wireless. RIP.
  3. Victor Lownes, 'Long-standing' Playboy director/executive, 88.
  4. It's an often held view that one must experience significant downs in order to truest enjoy the high points in life. These things tend to work in cycles and I hope everyone can enjoy much about 2017.
  5. Very sorry to hear that Bearman.
  6. 3.17pm - No deaths so far.
  7. I've appeared on one of his albums. It was one of the best experiences of my professional life. I love his music. Working with Ruby Turner and Beverley Knight was superb! I'm unapologetically biased. Happy New Year one and all.
  8. LATEST: Discussions continue with further bid after consortium bid rejected.
  9. You're right! However, Nigel Wood makes an unconvincing Skeletor.
  10. Meanwhile, back in Twitterland, Rohan Smith is asking Bulls fans to 'be patient'.... seems it might not be all over yet?
  11. The administrator has rejected the Andrew Chalmers bid. Martyn Sadler is unsure as to whether this is the only bid on the table, or whether there is another one to accept (the mystery millionaire perhaps?)
  12. It appears that the bid has been rejected. Panic stations.
  13. It is against trading rules to charge different prices for the same type of ticket, in the same area of the ground. (And is certainly not permissible in the Football League, for example) I'm not sure you are right about this, but am happy to be proven wrong. The only way around it is to charge a specific price for a part of the stadium reserved solely for one set of fans. As there is no segregation at Odsal, this wouldn't seem possible.
  14. Or perhaps...
  15. It has been said before, but for many of us, 'The Queen of Sheba' episode is one of the most endearing pieces of TV we will ever have the privilege to watch.
