    A Pub With No Beer

    I agree they've come a long way but better than the real thing? Not yet in my books. 🍻

    Depeche Mode new album

    It gets better for a couple of listens but it's no Black Celebration. I just feel the music they produce and my tastes have diverged massively.

    What the hell is going on with clubs finances?!

    Agents represent the players. Agents agitate for moves/new contracts and players become unsettled and the club suffers. Yet the club is responsible for paying them. Why?

    Snuck in at the back post unseen.

    Depeche Mode new album

    I will try again when I might be in a more receptive mood, but initial impressions of the first few tracks is that it's a terrible dirge and a hard listen.

    The weekend beer and music thread

    Wine for a change - a glass of viognier which may be followed by another. Just fancied some Talking Heads tonight.

    Bet you don’t boast about the bets you lose.

    I agree there should be a choice to buy without the sponsor, but I guess most would choose the advert free option and so the sponsor will feel they are missing out.

    Virgin Media again.

    For all the talk of competition in the market our current choice is VM or slow broadband via BT as we are far from the exchange.

    Anybody else not get excited to watch England?

    First football to disappear behind Sky's paywall and I've never regained the interest I had before.

    Mitrovic - Now the dust settled

    As opposed to Dylan Hartley. "This man called me an effing cheat. He leaves the field!".

    Mitrovic - Now the dust settled

    I'd like the refs to be miked up. We'd have 3-4 weeks of commentators apologising for industrial language every 3 minutes and loads of yellow cards, then the penny will drop.

    ‘It’s very nice, but it’s going nowhere”

    Or a RF banner.

    Giles for England?

    How often does Trent Alexander Arnold play under Southgate? Another with world class delivery but there are better defenders.

    Interesting looking grid for Saudi GP

    Fair play to Stroll for doing such a good job of parking off the track, an effort totally wasted by clowns.

    Jonny Howson

    As Maddo said yesterday "He's like Mr Bean" just appears when required. I think he meant the shopkeeper from Mr Benn.

    Have you ever made a model of the cup to take to the game

    No, but this post reminded me of a great landlord in Scunny who was a Geordie. On the shelf behind the bar was a mug with the slogan "This is a Geordie mug, not to be confused with a cup"

    Q we posed at the game today have you ever seen us play better than we are now

    Not in my memory in terms of style and consistency.
