    I think they did come in the post, yes.

    Collection of old programmes - what would YOU do?

    I've only been to Swindon once and my initial feeling is that it was the 1995 game, but will check.

    Collection of old programmes - what would YOU do?

    I'm duplicating an old board thread here, so here is the original - if you have any thoughts but prefer to post over here, let me know... (also, replies here are better for notification purposes :))

    Riverside Roar volumes 3-5

    I appear to have all of these for some reason. Are they any use to anyone other than my local recycling facility?

    Gazette talking about sending 5 players out on loan

    Vickers to Hartlepool Mail Robson to the Herald and Post Tallentire to Melchester News Oh I see, sorry

    Lockdown crew

    Just out of interest, the ECDC publish a daily update on coronavirus infections, which includes a cumulative number of cases per 100k population over the preceding 14 days. This is the number that the UK government use to decide on the travel exemptions (which include Denmark but not Sweden)...

    Anyone learnt a language through Rosetta Stone?

    Well, the medium term plan is to improve my not-horrendous French and my basic Spanish and Italian, but I'm particularly interested at the moment in Urdu. And there don't seem to be any decent courses in that, but from what I understand if you can do Hindi you can do Urdu - except the scripts...

    Anyone learnt a language through Rosetta Stone?

    I've used the trial and it looks promising - to be honest I'm tempted to dive in and pay a couple of hundred quid for lifetime all-language access, but just wondered if anyone had any personal experience of the full version?

    Gazette proof reader needed... Urgently

    I know that maintaining a significant distance is a good visual message, but I'm fairly sure that the evidence now is that you're not going to catch anything from walking past somebody unless they happen to cough or sneeze at an unfortunate moment. This would obviously be even more unlikely if...

    That’s me off

    Have you moved pierre? I thought you were further south than that. Edit: sorry, just read the rest of the thread, you'd think I'd know about skipping to the end after 20 years...

    Anthony Vickers - Over & Out

    Huge shame. One of the few writers who can capture the *feel* of a game and put it in words. Some of his stuff on Traore positively bounced off the screen, did three stepovers and left you on your **** in admiration of the prose. On the positive side, perhaps now we will learn if he ever...

    Fifty quid bike voucher scheme opens tonight

    Most predictable crash since Suzuka 1990.

    Warnock agrees 1 year deal

    Well I posted this on the thread with the first Gazette link, but as everyone's here now... Working hypothesis: the same people who accuse Steve Gibson of being lazy when he appoints someone young and/or local and/or already employed will praise this one to the heavens because they've seen him...

    Warnock agrees to become Boro manager

    Working hypothesis: the same people who accuse Steve Gibson of being lazy when he appoints someone young and/or local and/or already employed will praise this one to the heavens because they've seen him on the telly before he arrived. When in fact he has, depressingly, done the job he was...

    The San Marino Grand Prix is back!

    No, because as Randy says they all have simulators down to the nth degree anyway. Take Friday practice off them and at least there's a chance they might have programmed the sim wrong and don't have chance to get it right in the hour they get on Saturday morning.

    7-0

    Can anybody remember which manager, while heading towards being on the end of a thrashing, started encouraging his players to get sent off to get it abandoned?

    Clever appointment

    This is technically true. I can't see this one lasting 14 years though.

    How did you greet the news today

    Assumed Tallentire's Twitter account had been hacked, then assumed everyone's Twitter account had been hacked, then realised it's just the same old story of half-arsed decisions that have been made for the last 11 years.

    Clever appointment

    I don't think "again" is necessary. It's as valid now as it was then, and hasn't really ceased to be in between.
