  1. Bit of a con that to be honest, since I''m a shareholder. Must activate the free membership next season.

    Anyway, I''ve invested my ticket money on a kit for my toddler instead, we can have our own party at home with it on the TV. Still, hope everyone enjoys their trip.

    London Marathon

    Wow, 2:22 is almost professional standard Swindon. When I ran the London

    Marathon a few years back I was lucky to do 100 miles a month! I know

    the guy that did a 2:21 yesterday, 5th out of the non-elites. I

    am listed as a "did not start" which is a shame. My body does not like

    anything over 2 runs a week. But still hope for a pb half marathon in a

    couple of months. I find training for halfs managable, but a full is too

    time consuming and hard on the legs and body.I agree that speedwork is the key, that is why I don''t get faster, I don''t do any! Well done to Adam. Also, great times from a Karl and Lincoln.
  3. Actually their wine is only overpriced outside France! and in my opinion it is pretty good.

    favourite drugs



    Not because I use it! More due to it being the first chemical synthesis I studied years ago. I made analogues of it. I am a synthetic organic chemist, so I guess my answer isn''t what you expected? Otherwise, booze! Never tried viagra, never felt the need to, but wouldn''t mind seeing what it does to my libido (and my member!).

    Carl Froch massive knob

    I actually think he comes over as a pretty decent chap, don''t belive all the pre fight banter. It''s not worth getting your kinckers in a twist over is it?

    the TEN MEN and the 9690

    [quote user="Marmaduke"]I think statistics tell us that, in reality, none of this lot will ever figure in the first team ...[/quote]

    ......and your point is?

    FA Youth Cup - murphys

    They looked pretty good to me, not perfect but good prospects. But you''ll always get bell-ends moaning for the sake of it.

    Carlton Morris

    [quote user="Marmaduke"]Reminiscent of Carl Cort in his prime for us![/quote]


    Oh yeah, the speed at which he moved up and down the aisles at Asda, not to mention his finishing, no one packs their shopping bags quicker. A true Norwich legend.

    Tour de France

    yes it''s good so far, an amazing British 1, 2 yesterday. Bradley looked good in the moutains too, not so sure about his colourful langauge in the press conference mind!

    [quote user="SHRIMPER"]Mrs Shrimper was there last week to see grandchildren and said she liked it. We visit about once a month as a rule so we have seen it alter over time. I like St Pancras  next door also.[/quote]

    I think they did a great job with St Pancras, it is always a pleasure to arrive in London at such a magnificant station. Also, the hotel is finally open as a hotel again (OK it has been for a few years), I''d forgotten what it looked like with all the scaffolding, what a great structure.

  13. hope it goes well, my daughter was born 10 weeks ago in Leicester, I am yet to buy her any NCFC clothes, I''d better get my act together before someone buys her something inapropriate like a leicester top.

    What y'all listening to?

    I rather like the king Creosote / John Hopkins cd Diamond Mine. Other wise it has been a quiet year for music so far. I also like M83, Hurry up we''re dreaming, this was realesed last year mind. These are to 2 cd''s that will remind me of the birth of my little''un. The latest Wedding present album is solid too, plus they are playing the Seamonsters album in it''s entirity later in the year.
  15. SM, no idea what you point is in relation to my post.
