    Agreed, that top 4 instantly looks more balanced and sturdy. Hope we give Sibley plenty of time to settle. Also good that we have taken Crawley out there, could see him slotting into the top 3 in the next couple of years. Hope Curran steps up, feels like we need another first change bowler who can take wickets on flat tracks, be interesting to see what they do with the balance of the attack when\if Anderson comes back in.

    I have done this in 3 places in my house, using cheap tp link routers set up in access mode, allows you to use the same WiFi network as in the main house and allows phones etc to easily switch between them, also means you can plug a computer into it. Only thing that gets difficult is anything that needs multicast (only thing I found was you view boxes about 3 years ago.). I bought the cheap routers from Argos, and they work perfectly following this guide

    I went for the standard sheath, to be honest it feels well made and substantial, and I figured nice and easy to clean, so didn't bother with the upgrade.

    Also the idea that that advertising effect wasn't being measured prior to the launch of digital advertising is also false, look at the work of Simon Broadbent who started the use of econometrics to measure the impact of advertising back in the sixties.

    I run an econometrics agency, so measuring the effect of these things is literally what I do day in\ day out, and have done for the last 15 years. There is a lot of digital advertising that demonstrably does not work, and google\facebook are probably two of the worst for this, but there is also plenty of really good digital work which does shift the needle, unsurprisingly the exact same thing can be said of offline media...

    Looked into a bit more, looks like Vince is backing Labour (he has donated to both Labour and Greens in the past).

    Isn't this one way though? Are there any Labour remain candidates standing aside for the alliance? I guess not as Labour would just stand someone else instead.

    Having lived just outside Stroud for a few years, I fully understand why Greens are standing, and could easily see them winning, Dale Vince has a fair amount of sway in the area, employs a lot of people through Ecotricity and also influence through Forest Green Rovers.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it conveniently takes the whole season prior to playoffs, so that they can sidestep the issue of this season, deduct the points just before the playoffs so that Sarries are not in it, and then give them the off season to get in line.
