  1. Football Season 2015/16

    Hope so. Cech finally beaten by Messi after 6 attempts, all it took was to join Arsenal.
  2. bad stuff thread.

    MadDog I'm truly sorry to hear the news. Especially the bit about Ashley being amazing. You've been incredibly brave throughout and the response on here shows how much of a top guy you are. All the best.

    Another red that Costa was involved in. Correct call though, don't think Kosc was getting back. Though I wonder what Ramar thinks...
  4. Xpert 11 NE: Season 1, Simul (Summer 2016)

    Disappointed it won't start sooner to be honest! Will the other league to continue to run?
  5. Football Season 2015/16

    Bit of relief for Jose on the Europe front. Just need to win it now...

    Not sure you can claim it as your joke when it was ripped off the BBC sportspage!

    What protein shake/ recovery drink would people most recommend on here for being effective and price efficient?
  8. Job woes/wins

    Try 4 years :p You may be thinking of Zell? I would consider leaving but if I get a promotion, I get £5k for loyalty bonus making it all the way to manager and reckon I could make that soonish. Quite a tempter to stay..
  9. Job woes/wins

    Had my pay discussion today and having spoken to my friends, seems I've been given a lower pay rise compared to them despite getting really good feedback. I suspect this may be because I'm due to be moving to a new department that may not pay as much. It has irked be because my hard work over the past year has led to nothing and I have to stick around in this department for at least two months next year so I'm considering just coasting. However I can't help but feel the need to do a good job so doubt I'll follow through with that.

    I've been lurking but too lazy to write!
  11. Weight Loss and Fitness 2015

    So I always wondered how everyone was benching so much more than me but I found out it is because I never take the weight of the bar into account! So I'm here doing 70-75 thinking pretty poor after having done it for a while but turns out the bar is 15-20 so really I'm doing fine.
  12. bad stuff thread.

    Essentially yes your new company screwed up and should have sorted out old and new but you still have to pay the tax so really it is money that should have been paid this year. It will come out on a monthly basis next year as your tax free allowance spread across the 12 months will be reduced to pay it off across the year. Essentially you've had a bit of extra money than should have done this year so could be construed as a benefit...sort of.
  13. Don't forget personality and body! Moog - did you not send a text earlier in the day asking if still up for meeting up? Surely you always need to double check! Also, I've been the 'other' guy, this was back when we were all like 15 so I don't feel bad about it but now I couldn't do it and neither should you. Like others have said, think how you would feel if you were the guy. Plus no chance of anything more happening because could never trust her!
  14. The Xpert Thread

    Depends if you count old league, that was all about Oddy (I won some too)! I'm still chipping away but been focusing on team so lost a few games here and there in middle league waiting to be strong enough for the top league. My first game was ridiculous, dominated in most aspects and lost 1-0. Results like that just make me frustrated with the game, yes there needs to be luck but that already makes me less likely to play. Sad to see a few big names bowing out but it happens. Can't get rid of me just yet though!
  15. Self-learning

    I'm self learning to play the guitar, but I've already bored you about it already :p
  16. Formula 1 2015

    If you don't mind me asking. How much did you pay?
  17. Football Season 2014/2015

    I thought Buffon had a decent game, he made a fantastic save in the first half. Unsighted and going away from him to stop Neymar's volley. He did parry Messi's shot into Suarez, but it had a bit too much fizz to be able to catch I think.
  18. Football Season 2014/2015

    How Vidal wasn't sent off I don't know. What was he thinking that first 20 or so minutes?? Barca's front three are simply mesmerising at times and had enough chances, think at least 5 v 3 twice in the game which they wasted. Not quite the same spectacle as last year but still a good game of two top sides. I don't think any English team deserved to be in that final against those two. Maybe Chelsea :p
  19. Formula 1 2015

    Sorry I was a little unclear. My mate has gone to Canada which made me think about Silverstone, given it is easier to get to for a first time to a GP. Great answers though, will have to consider the 3 day ticket if it gets the fourth visit day as well! Thanks
  20. Formula 1 2015

    Fellow F1 fans, I have questions for those that have attended Silverstone/ any GPs. My friend is off on a trip to Canada to watch the GP this weekend and I thought it would be a great idea to finally go see it and get another ticket as a present for my dad. Though I think he'll be in the US for 2015, I'm just a far ahead thinker for 2016. Just a couple of questions: a) When do tickets normally come out? Research suggests January? b) Is it a worthwhile experience? c) Would you recommend general admission or another area/ ticket type? d) Is it really worth going all 3 days or just for race day? Obviously, it is economically more efficient to go for 3 days as the price isn't much higher, but then you have accomodation/ travel time and costs factoring in to that as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  21. Anyone else see a John Snow/ Kit Harington resemblance in Charlie's face?
  22. The Flash

    Really enjoyed this show. Been one episode behind you all so avoided this thread mostly in case of spoilers but sad it'll be over for a while!
  23. Job woes/wins

    Eeeeew Deloitte. Worse than Zell!
  24. What Have You Bought?

    Finally started on my new year's resolution from 2013 and bought a guitar. Hands already hurt! I'll be serenading Ashley in the not too distant future.
  25. I agree. Back to online dating (after recently breaking up with someone for the second time and it is rather annoying! Would have thought being in London would mean more choice and the likelihood of normal people that reply!
