    Just hire a cordless angle grinder, it'll be about £15 for a day. Should take less than 5 minutes but do it before 9 or at lunch time if you don't want to disturb your colleagues.

    Little Big Planet?

    Starts off a bit simple but it gets quite tricky later on, can (read has) cause(d) some big arguments when playing co-op though.

    Police seem to have set-up some kind of raised guard tower at the bottom of Tottenham Court Road; couldn't tell what the branding said on the side of it so not sure whether it's cyclist related or not but they now have a nice high viewing spot looking over both directions of oxford street.

    Are you championing Hodgson? Interesting choice. A little run of wins will put Liverpool back where they should be (bordering between champions league & europa league spots).

    I do agree about Gerrard though - about time he was sent to the glue factory.

    No I'm talking about improving the defense through different training rather than sacking the manager that is actually quite good considering the club.

    I know I'm probably in the minority here but for me Rodgers is a decent manager & has done a good job considering the mess Liverpool were in but he's never been particularly defensively minded. The lack of goals (due to being without the two best strikers from last season) wouldn't be as much of a problem if the defense weren't shipping soft goals every game.

    Should we lose the improved attacking football by sacking the manager & getting someone more defensive in? No, we should keep the good forward play & get someone in to help with the back-line. They're not bad players, they're just making the wrong decisions or plain old mistakes - different training for when the team doesn't have the ball would help Liverpool.

    Pretty disappointed by fellow Liverpool fans calling for Rodger's head, he's been a good manager for us & is just going through a bad spell whilst missing his best player.

    I would like to see him possibly hire a new defensive coach though, something isn't right there & needs to be addressed.

    I also think the players need to be toughened up some how - so many goals this season have been conceded within 30 seconds of one of our players being weak when things get a bit physical. Oddly it's the bigger/older guys that seem to be happy to fall to the floor & Sterling is the only one I can think of this season that's shown any fight to stay on his feet.

    Train stops on one platform, go through barrier.
    Bike is locked on another platform so go through that platform's barrier.
    Unlock bike & head off to work, get stuck behind the barrier.

    Not that fussed about the mornings as I'm in no real hurry to get to work but the return journey is a bit of a rush.

    @Pifko - nice; hadn't thought of that, maybe I'll just wait!

    Each time I go through the station on my commute I have to pass through the barriers 3 times. In an attempt to stop people passing their tickets back over the barrier for someone else to use, the barriers are limited to 2 ticket-reads per hour so I end up stuck on the inside of the barrier every time.

    This means I have to go & queue with the people that didn't buy a ticket as they go through being served by one slow guard at the gates. Not a huge problem I know but it happens twice a day to most cyclists using the station & has caused me to miss the train a few times. I obviously wouldn't do it every time but when it's touch & go to catch the train it would be useful to just jump over since my ticket is definitely valid.

    Cheers for the answers though.

    Is it illegal to jump the ticket barrier at a train station if you DO have a valid ticket?

    Water-proof trousers & jacket, felt like a 90's game when you've got the bullet proof cheat on. All dry (apart from the ankles of my socks), toasty warm, many skids.
