  1. What I wanna know is what happened to the first 6 sheds??
  2. I'm in. I'll provide the flaming torches as well!
  3. I'm about halfway through 'Paperboy' by Tony McCauley and I'm lovin' it! I've been reading a lot about Northern Ireland recently and this is one of the best so far. It is a memoir about the author when he was a kid working as a paperboy on the Shankhill Road at the height of the troubles and what it was like to grow up in that environment. Fascinating, funny and entertaining, highly recommend! It is the first of a series of 4 about the authors life and I will certainly be ordering the others off amazon as soon as I'm done with this one.
  4. I've been saying this to people a lot recently. I'll be sat with someone and they go through the TV guide three or four times, sigh and say, "I guess I'll just put that on" and just whack on a random channel to which I say, "you could just turn it off" and they look at me like I've just said I want to defecate on their living room floor. I'm not sure some people actually realise you can turn the tele off. I've been sat in a room with the tele off before and someone will come in, turn it on straight away and then get on with doing something completely different, not watching it. What the heck is that about?
  5. The decrease in dummy half runs is something I've noticed myself. I imagine that directly affects the reduction in metres being made as well. With defences getting stronger this could be leading to teams opting the throw the ball around more and earlier in the set, more offloading and trying to create a hole in the defensive line rather than trying punch through with heavy forward running. That would possibly account for the missed tackles and breaks. What is interesting if that was the case is the decrease in errors. With more expansive rugby being played and the ball being chucked about more you would think more errors would creep in which I guess suggests that ball handling skills are simply improving. Interesting stats Dunbar!
  6. And one of those silly mistakes has come back to bite Newcastle on the behind. A couple of reckless, loose offloads, simple pick up for Doncaster, in under the sticks. Doncaster 20 nil and probably the game.
  7. Hard luck London, I really wanted you to stay up. You've been one of the most enjoyable things about this season and I think you've been most people's second team. I want you back up as soon as possible!
