    Deauville Legend will win the Melbourne cup.

    Cheers mate. Certainly taken the eye of many recognised pundits down here with his work at Werribee.

    Probably the one I will have to have a smallish go at now Surefire just failed to make the cut in running second in the qualifying race the Geelong Cup. Oddly, the other three I  have a small fancy for all begin with 'D'! Caulfield Cup winner Durston seems remarkably well in at the weights even after a penalty. Duais is the class horse in the race but needs a dryer track than we have been seeing down here of late. Daqiansweet Junior won the Adelaide Cup and is a good long odds hope but again needs a dry track.

    Not seeing it as a great edition so if Deauville Legend is anything like a decent stayer, should be a good time to be having a tilt at it.

  2. DMB sent me a 'new' ditty this morning:

    "Steve Gerrard, Gerrard,

    He's big an' he's fuckin' 'ard,

    He's down in the dole's front yard,

    Steve Gerrard, Gerrard".

    A Rangers mate of mine reckons it will be GVB out and Gerrard back. We shall see.

    mustve been only me that saw it. 

    were on 'on the ball' or another granadaland quiz or summat, early 80s, pretty sure peter reid played for bolton in the episode i saw on youtube. 

    the wordmark looked like this, like a stencil or fraktur style font .

    ıı "

    which just looks like four lines at first glance, but is stylized to use the 'stem' from the b as part of the w .

    as i said it looks like an 'IMb' postal barcode , but i thought it looked retrofuture and cool. 

    only place i ever saw it in use. maybe 'we' were gonna use it , but didnt in the end. 

    if i find it ill post it up. 

    Nanu, nanu.

  4. Watched Madrid at Elche this morning. Anyone who thinks VAR has been a good thing should look at how many great moments were ruined by it in this game for the sake of the thickness of football shirt material.

    It's ruining the entertainment aspect.

    Whilst there's a very good chance he get them top four, did anyone really think they could win the title?

    No mate, you are spot on. They are a long way off City and Liverpool as Conte has repeatedly said. Unless Levy et al have very deep pockets and are prepared to really speculate, it won't be happening for 3 or 4 years and they won't do it anyway based on their past record.

    This will be why Conte ends up at another big club on the European mainland sooner or later. I would not be surprised however if he delivers some silverware to Spurs before then. Brilliant coach.

    City will coast to the title this time around.

    we should do one with that italic wordmark from that granada quiz show that "we" never used, before the blue football logo we've had ever since. very illegibly blackletter fraktur font-like but rounded in places. iirc. i wish i could find it. looked like a post office barcode

    style the kit like a early 80s space movie spacesuit. 


    and play with a photo printed metalic effect football with rivets. 


    Fuck me - meanwhile on Tatooine................

    The folk amazed at the 6 xl option need to understand even @stevieb is a 4xl in macron gear

    I haven't forgotten the tee shirts pal. You belittling (excuse the pun) sizing issues is nothing new.

    Also I'm 6'6" and sizes are decent and generally true.

    Wife buys me it cos it fits and is decent clobber. I'm not a thug or loaded, just like the gear.

    PS when is too old to wear SI and Adidas?

    Never! Been wearing it since the 60's. Stuck in a time warp and don't give a fuck.

    Haaland absolute fraud

    hattricks against dog n duck teams, cant do it against the big boys

    :rofl: Now stop it R. Nobody is going to bite on that one. I do see your point though, City are having a minor good run and will fade into obscurity very soon. That Spaniard running things is bang average.

    Big thanks to those of you who flagged up how poor the packers were the weekend before. Jets were odds of 5-2 at Green Bay on Sunday. Very nice!

    Yep. I have a lot of friends up there through work connections and they were hinting two seasons back that Rodgers was at the end but he keeps pulling wins out. You just feel this time that it may really be coming to an end.

    Packers next for the Bills (not at the fortress fortunately)

    then Jets away

    cannae wait

    Can only see two wins for the Bills there but there is always hope.

    They're talking shite, only won the last two 2013 and 2017. NZ won in 2008 and it was on home (Oz) soil too


    Cheers pal - must have been the Balter talking. They'd swilled enough of it by the time I got there!

    Seeing one of them again tomorrow at Rodneys Bait & Tackle so I'll be putting the record straight. I wouldn't have a fucking clue about that game. Hope England win it of course.

  13. Was with Eels and Panthers fans yesterday at the Federal Hotel in Fremantle. Thugby League doesn't really do it for me but they had replays of the games on the big screen in the beer garden with the England game and the Australia game being shown.

    They were remarkably complimentary about England's victory against Samoa. Seems they really rate Samoa and expected a much closer result.

    Once the Aussies came on though it was a case for them of "Who do we beat in the final, England or NZ"? Didn't even bother to check if the groups are arranged to allow for this to happen? They are ultra confident "We've won the last three and there's nothing to stop us winning a fourth here".

    FFS, I hope England can win it (and if not then NZ).

    Daniela, thanks for reminding me what an utter balls up that was. I sincerely hope no one took my advice. Colette hasn't fired a shot since I posted that. Still, she was a little cracker for me before that so can't complain.

    Never one to shy away, I am into one called Surefire for this years edition of the Melbourne Cup. 34.00/9.00 been available with money back for a non runner so too good to refuse. Won at Ascot and a few other UK tracks so will likely be known by the learned racing types on here. Certainly with the right trainer down here. Same bloke who trained Winx.

    Update - sounds like Waller might bypass the Melbourne Cup and go to a race the following Saturday in Sydney called the 5 Diamonds.

    That will simply be stake back for me and seeking advice from you up there re Deauville Legend and Camorra which are highly fancied by pundits down here for the Melbourne Cup?

  15. Meant to mention, Scottish football. After the old firm were both bounced, Hearts were pitiful at Fiorentina last night. Looked like the viola could score at will.

    Pub league is harsh but I reckon the bottom half of the Championship and the top half of League One would give their current squads  something to think about.

    While we're on random European football, watching highlights of Feyenoord last night and any time I see them score at home shit loads of beer gets chucked everywhere behind each net.

    Anyone been watching them? It happens so often that it must surely be a "thing" there.

    It has been happening for a very long time. Bit stupid and wasteful IMO. There used to be lot of lads from Bradford (a few from Bradford St George SC amongst them) who went over to Feyenoord games and hang a big, fuck off union flag in the left hand corner as you view from the TV gantry. Being Yorkies, I would have been surprised if they would have chucked their ale in the air!

    Had a permanent invite but never made the trip which I am sorry about now. Atmosphere supposed to really something.

    If he does, and FIFA ban him for a game or two, what then?

    A martyr for the cause. Who gives a fuck about the football?

    Southgate has my backing

    But, he has to find a place for Foden in the starting 11, can't leave that kind of talent on the bench

    Can I recommend Sooty & Sweep, Orville The Duck and Basil Brush? They are puppets too.
