  1. It's Bamford, he owes the universe several more to balance this off:
  2. Most interesting is that he's saying it's his choice/he's retiring from the stresses of EPL management. I think the announcement has been brought forward so the fans at the Arsenal game can say goodbye. I'm extremely grateful for his tenure and the success (relativelym, for us) he's brought us, but with 10 players out of contract and the opportunity to reubild the team I think fresh blood makes sense.
  3. Another Hodgson tactical masterclass, 2-1 down to Southampton and we are all over them second half trying to get an equaliser with plenty of (rare for us) attacking play, so he decides to change the formation that was working so well back to the weak (through the middle) 442 he loves so much annnnnnnnnd...... Almost immediately 3-1 Southampton, Ings strolls right through to score. And then we haven't been out of our own half since.
  4. It's a cracking tune, one of the best on the album. Turns out it's from 1997 when Rivers played in a band called Homie (when at college) Original demo from then is online: I'malways amazed at the journey of some songs and how long they take to be fully formed/finished.
  5. Palace have bored the shit out of me for the majority of their time in the EPL, but its effective for a team of (relatively) limited means to stay up by being a team that most of the time is incredibly hard to break down. The problem is that most of the fan base want more, and not Charlton style "We should be challenging for Europe" before they got rid Curbishley, but just to be able to feel like we are going for a game. Are the riches of the EPL worth the sacrifice of enjoying the game?
  6. It was a cracking finish, but it was against Palace so I think it only counts as a quarter of a goal in real terms. Hodgson masterclass again, go 2-1 down after 80 minutes, take off midfielders and replace them with...2 midfielders and leave 2 strikers on the bench (and leave Benteke on, who has done fuck all) So much "be careful what you wish for" in terms of hoping for him to retire, but I don't think I can take another season of utter boredom and frustration, and now his biggest strength (solid defence) has abandoned him I'm not 100% convinced he'll get away with it if there aren't 3 really shit teams next year.
  7. I've continued to buy St Mars of the Desert every time they release, and it's baffling just how good their beers are, they even did a barley wine (a style I'm not overly in love with) that was great. Latest is this one, and another cracker.
  8. I'm guesing with Spurs it's that Levy knows where some bodies are buried?
  9. It's not often I like Gary Neville.
  10. 50 quid says we don't bother and re-sign Benteke on double money
  11. I'd like the full 2 minutes silence, and none of the game for the Palace match "highlights"
  12. As a Palace fan I'd like to take this moment to remember that fact that one of my favourite Palace players ever, Clinton Morrison (rechristened Clinton O'Morrison) Sarf Lahndan born and bred (Tooting/Mitcham) was capped 36 times by Ireland by virtue of his grandmother taking a holiday there once. My favourite moment was when Sky were interviewing him and started asking him questions about his newly adopted home nation and one question where the answer was Giant's Causeway was met with the excited response "I now this one, I know this one, it's the Blarney Stone innit!" in a full South London accent. He's a funny bloke and full of mischief so very difficult to know if he was being sly or not, but the interviewers face was a treat.
  13. Just had their Bougie Burger kit, I ate 2 and feel like I could hibernate for a month
  14. Just had that as well, really good. I'm struggling to think of another UK brewer with such a good 'hit' rate. I'm waaaaayyyy down south (West Kent) and it's weird that a county so steeped in hops has a fairly weak brewery scene (there's some OK ones but very stuck in the old styles). Beak not too far down the road though.
  15. Starting the weekend with a can of the SMOD Fluffy White Rabbits. It's excellent, probably just pips the Biere De Mars to my favourite so far from them but we are talking small margins and pretty much everything I've had from them so far I'd make a point to buy again.
  16. I picked up 3 each of the new SMOD,looking forward to trying them. I'd be interested in your thoughts on the Beak collab (when you get a chance to try it)
  17. Every time his name is mentioned, all I can think of is this:
  18. Drinking the Fort Point now, it's a unique beer and i'm enjoying it. It's hard to put a finger on quite why I like it though, it's both light and has a big punch in terms of flavour. I can't say I've had better in the style, but I don't think (some) UK breweries are too far off.
  19. The "Name" or the "Thanks"?
  20. I've finally started the Trillium. Loved the collab, big hitter and definitely special. The Berliner Weisse was very much my kind of thing, very heavy on the fruit (but not at the expense of not feeling like a "fancy" beer) Scaled was very good (but as you say paled a bit compeared the others) Having the Fort Point later tonight. For me so far it's clearly great beer from a great producer, there's probably a little bit too much hype but I can see why they are heralded.
  21. Not sure if it's quite what you are after, but this (on the hazy side) was a cracker in the Trillium/Cloudwater box (available online on it's on), very much fruity and a bit coconutty. There's a 10% TIPA with the same hops from Cloudwater that was only supplied to independent bottle shops called Thanks Again For Your Support that is meant to be great.
  22. I think my concern with the more premium/higher cost boxes is that if you have one or two duffers (or just not to your tastes) you’ve already lost any value of buying the box and you may have well just put one together yourself. I can see at least 2 of those that I would likely not be that keen.
