Re: Getting a cat to take tablets

With our dog I always wrap them in a piece of cheese and they go down without a struggle.

Is there a cat equivalent of this? A mouse or a sparrow or something?

Re: Jack Wilshere

I was talking to a mate at the weekend who is a big Arsenal fan, and he was saying how he rates Wilshere as one of the best midfielders they've had at the club, and was very highly regarded by his peers. Shame how it has worked out

Re: 2nd Hand Car Considerations

Handy for that Essex terrain - :thup: Well, I do live in Switzerland where things are a bit more pointy & snowy so I think it's allowed :) It's also great for carrying passengers and luggage/trash without resorting to a dull as dishwater people carrier. But to be honest i don't really get the vitri...

Re: 2nd Hand Car Considerations

I bought a LR Discovery Sport Diesel new nearly 4 years ago, now has 60k on the clock and has been trouble-free (touch wood). It is a good all-rounder: the daily commute, car full of kids thanks to the 7 seats, plenty of space for my weekly runs to the council dump or holidays, etc, but it is especi...

Re: Manager 18 - David Moyes: yes or no? [POLL]

I was chatting to a friend of Moyes about a year ago at a pub quiz of all things and so I know he wasn’t happy that he wasn’t given a second season. Therefore he could feel he has something to prove, but then I doubt he would come back for just a few months without some assurance that he would get a...

We’ve done this before so I know a few of us made our debuts to Leeds in ‘77/8 losing 0:1 and getting relegated that season. Made the Golden Age ‘80-86 all the sweeter.
Yes, me included. At least I suppose I resisted the temptation of becoming a Leeds fan as a result

Reading the rationale behind it actually makes sense, but I mean come on, who on earth would get that meaning by themselves?

I remember jumping up and celebrating in the Clock End when Don Hutchison scored, along with many other West Ham fans, when i couldn't get a ticket in the away end.

8 years since they won in prem after being behind at halftime. Put some money on 1-2 quick!
That’s a pretty amazing stat for a team of their past stature

But yes, I’m sure we can do our best to end that surprising record for them

Re: Amazon

the 'stadium' atmosphere option seemed a good idea but wasn't even stereo sound, it was mono. there I was primed to get the full stadium experience at home with my full dolby atmos set up and instead only sound from the center speaker. Picture was fine, commentary was dull and cliche. the less said...

Re: Bob Willis RIP

I've very fond childhood memories of summers spent playing cricket in the park, and trying to imitate Bob's trademark cocked-wrist enormous run up. For those moments we were Bob Willis (until our resulting fast delivery went 5 yards wide of the stumps)

Re: Doggone it

That actually works quite well as a dog's name, I think (and before anyone says owt, that's not a reference to our vice chair). Following a family conference, and in line with Whitters' guidelines, it looks like it's going to be 'Alfie'. Or Alfred, when he needs to be reprimanded. Good choice - tha...

Re: Amazon

No problems here with the picture quality, and that’s with using a dns proxy to trick Amazon into thinking I’m in the UK. I do have decent internet speeds, even through a normal line so I’m sure that is a factor

Shame the match doesn’t equally impress

Re: Little things that irritate you

I'm a member of a Facebook Group relating to my brand of guitar. One middle-aged bloke in Texas posted a photo of his impressive collection of 20+ electric guitars so I clicked on his profile out of curiousity to see if he was in a band, more photos, etc, only to notice that of his 100 or so Faceboo...
