It brought back memories seeing the New Year's Day game from 2002 when they beat us 3-0 on Sky before. My first West Ham game. Never been so cold in my life.
Were you old enough to have a beer afterwards?

Re: Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein & Prince Andrew

1 down, now for the rest of the biggest recipients of the UK benefits system, the Royal family. Surely I am not the only Republican in the village? I could be wrong & I'm neither a fan nor opponent of them but don't the royals bring in more revenue than they receive? They're a global brand and ...

That was our first top flight loss to Leeds in 19 years.

Re: In other news

Yesterday some British bloke goes into a synagogue near Dallas & holds some people hostage. He was demanding some woman (a Pakistani neuroscientist who's in US prison until 2086 but many think she was set up) get released. Eventually all 4 hostages got out safely and the British bloke was killed...

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

I said earlier in this thread we'd finish 8th.

I'm now revising that to 8th with a chance of 7th.

Re: Running

if anyone has ever been to, or seen photos of, downtown San Diego you might have noticed the iconic Coronado Bridge. It's traffic only but twice a year opens up. Once for a cycling event and once for a run. Which I signed up for 2 years ago but.... well, you know. But it's back now. A mile 4 run fro...

Re: Are these figures correct?

15 days almost completed. Feeling good. Sleep not as deep this week.

Ran up a bloody steep trail yesterday morning. Had to stop twice but a few weeks ago my heart would have been exploding out of my chest.

Been tempted a couple of times but not been near any bars or anything.

Re: Are these figures correct?

Take it from me, this approach won't work. You'll find a special occasion excuse for every time you want a drink. That was my error when I first started trying to quit. Won't drink during the week, only on a Friday - so every Friday became an excuse to get pissed, and so on and so forth. I don't kn...

Re: Are these figures correct?

Shabu- are you attempting to quit altogether? Indeed, good luck to everyone trying to cut down or quit. I am so boring these days that I probably have less than five or six beers in a week most of the time. My present goal is to only drink on special occasions rather than every day out of habit. So...

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

If you look at the current form table we're in joint 6th with Chelsea & Leicester on 10 points. Citeh obviously top with 18 points then it's Spurs (14), Man U (13), Arsenal (12) then Liverpool on 11. That's the new Top Eight clubs battling it out although we'll see if Leicester pick up in the 2n...

Re: Are these figures correct?

I'm on day 9 of my 3rd attempt since Thanksgiving (25/11). First two attempts lasted 10 days but I feel different, more confident, this time. Knowing I didn't drink NYE was a big boost and my immediate goal is to last till my holiday on January 26th. AND I'm sleeping well this time. Massive differen...

Anniversary for an ignominious day tomorrow. It’s remarkable and humiliating that no one has yet been held accountable for it. Hopefully people keep their cool.
Plenty of been held accountable, just not those that organised it & stoked the fires.

Re: Summer Holidays
