    Congratulations! See you at Wembley! As a town fan I want Huddersfield to win but Forest to go up on some obscure technicality.

    In other news: total scenes in Huddersfield

    One match away from a season of tears in the prem. I've only just recovered from the last experience...

    Cheers! Might have to play the submarine stuff to my dad as he was a submariner in 1961.
    As 12 year olds we were kind of fascinated by listening to the sound divorced from any visuals - especially the stereo stuff. We we're also confused that they were pretty much the only records they had!

    I remember those! A friend's parents had a record collection of probably of less than 10 lps three of which were BBC Sound Effect records: Volume 1, a horror one ( various screams, beheadings, creaky floorboards) and a transport one (planes taking off/landing, trains, police sirens).

    Defo get the decals first - they'll last better under the clear coat. I've used H Lloyd decals without issue.

    I've a pair of these Vittoria 1976 spd shoes. Sized as 45 but come up small. Probably an 8.5 - 9 in UK sizes. £50 pick up from E5?

    Fair result that - you were the better side tonight. Good luck in the next round!
    ...As I Town fan I can now go back to simultaneously worrying about slipping out of the play-offs places and the horror that would be unleashed if we actually somehow won promotion.

    The police were out marshaling the bus queues at Liverpool Street at around 8.30 this morning. The queue must've been about 200 metres long.

    We faced a similar hike with the coop. In the end we tried registering as a new customer using my partner's name rather than mine (all other details and cover the same) and ended up getting it cheaper than last year!

    Now I'm back commuting (one day a week rather than the pre-covid five) the amount of RLJ bikes does seem to have increased massively. I don't know whether it new cyclists or people taking more risks with less vehicles being on the road. One thing I'd noticed before and is still true is that it's a kind of herd activity. If there's have five or six cyclists waiting on a light and if someone else goes cuts past and straight through the red, two or three of those waiting will follow (possibly without even thinking).
