    Wish I'd got the numberplate of the absolute fucktard behind the wheel of his AMG Mercedes that thought he could intimidate me by revving his engine as he sat inches off my rear wheel at 18-20mph.

    The Meridian Dan wannabe nearly pulled his German Whip out on me up Mare street as he decided he didn't need to wait for me to pass the junction he was coming out of. He obviously didn't take too kindly to my head shake and death stare and proceeded to use the bus lane up Mare street and follow me right on my rear wheel while shouting out his car. I took the right lane to get onto Well Street and he decided to cut up other road users to stay with me. Managed to put a van between the two of us as the traffic was moving slowly, but that didn't last long as he bullied himself past that driver too. Fucks sake.

    I looked around and could smell the stench of cunt rag coming from the drivers seat, he was that close. I decided to put the old driving skills to practice and I remember one of best way to deal with tailgaters is to slow down gradually. Did he not like that? The cunt only tried to force me off the road by attempting to overtake me as we were reaching stationary traffic. He had to emergency stop in the opposite carriageway with a bus coming at him.

    I wish I'd stopped and d-locked him in the face, because he deserved it, but I decided to filter through the traffic and distance myself from the untameable beast.

    Stay safe out there kids. There's cuntards in them cars.

    He doesn't really fit in our trusty 4-3-3, but with form and injuries at the moment, I'm just happy with have such a good plan B(ent).

    Rumours circulating that we're in for Tom Ince. Now, I'm not his biggest fan and he hardly pulled up any trees at forest (drum crash), but he is a similar sort of player to Ibe in terms of technique and pace.

    We do need a winger as the only two fit ones we have now don't exactly have exemplary injury records. Would probably prefer Atsu or Matt Phillips out of the names mentioned so far, but we'll probably end up with Hoillet on deadline day.

    BEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNT!!!

    Get in. Lambert must be fucking mental for wanting rid, he's the sort of player you need when the rest of your team can't fucking score...

    2nd one does avoid canal paths. Still a steepish shared footbridge (only really a concern for me on brkls track biek). Either of them are good options.

    Old Ford footbridge is just straight on at the end of Old Ford Road. The traffic will be either turning right or left, because it's a bit of a dead end for cars, so just keep going towards the bright lights...

    Yeah, but I find that means you end up going along the canal path, which isn't great when I'm on my crabon track bike with my racing wheels strapped to my back.

    i could be wrong though. :)

    When I'm commuting to and from home (which also takes me past the velodrome) I go along Cassland Road and Eastway which is fine, but they drive like cunts down there...

    I wish I knew! :)

    When I've got my track gear and wheels on my back I take Old Ford Road around Viccy park as the gates are usually closed when I'm going there and then onto Cadogan Terrace before taking the footbridge over East Cross. It lands you on the edge of Hackney Wick at Rothbury Road and then it's a simple chortle over White Post Lane to the Olympic Park.

    Not easy, but nothing is :)

    I see your point. They're also making a massive margin if that's the case. For the Thundercats jersey, I actually got hold of fabric samples from the factory I'm using and went through checking information about each one and seeing how well the ink printed on the fabric. I also made sure I was getting decent quality invisible zippers and other features.

    Some of the kits I've seen in the last few pages are asking $100s of dollars for something that is costing far less than half of that.
