    Haha! Yeah, sorry I had to run some errands and couldn’t resist popping in to grab that back!

    and if you click 'find tickets' it just asks for a membership number. I actually registered for free and got a number but it still says I need to upgrade (pay £29) to access tickets - which is fair enough - but maybe I'm doing something wrong..

    It will allow me to buy tickets for Arsenal Women v Barcelona Women though :)

    Thanks, I assume that still requires you to become a member first?

    Random dumbass question - what are the best options for getting into see either of the Arsenal games next week? A friend of a friend is unexpectedly arriving in UK with two kids and they are dead keen to see one of the games whilst they are here. It's years since I last went I and can't even remember how I sourced the tickets.

    Are there any 'legit' sites to get them from or is it going to be a 'wait till 5mins after KO and ask a tout' job..?

    I've never actually been into it, just scraped past it loads of times, but Strava/Veloviewer originally credited the tile as visited because one of the GPS records cut a corner through it (leading me to ignore it for years). VV added the 'tile recalculation' feature to improve the accuracy for these scenarios and it's triggered automatically when you click on a particular activity. It's mainly intended to give people extra 'missing' tiles but inevitably it can remove some too - and that's what happened when I inadvertently clicked on a ride from years ago recently. There's more detail here..

    ... I guess it's quite common as I ended up with 4 of these examples after I recalculated everything. This Ealing one is just the only one I haven't gone back to get yet (thanks Covid!).

    Nope, I’m way down the chart right now (jim rm). Correcting that gps error dropped me from 36x to 24x with one click. I ended up recalculating them all to save me getting another nasty shock later on! There were others that put me back to 16x until I did a ‘refill ride’.. :)

    I'm hoping that position will only be on temporary loan after I inadvertently 'improved' a GPS trace and ended up with this horlicks... :)

    Haha, yeah I always figured that would be most accurate time to do it - and if it had only happened once I would just assume that I probably did have it and the subsequent PCR was wrong. After the second time though.. I don't know what to think really.

    @ Fox ^

    Yes, just one positive LFT each time (3 months apart), the ones I did later in the day were all negative both times, as were the PCRs. No one else in my household has ever had anything resembling a faint line (even when checked retrospectively - but I've had about 3 of those too).

    The only thing they had in common was they were both early in the day, pre-breakfast etc..

    I've been in a similar situation a couple of times. Positive LFT (but a faint line that some people would possibly ignore) followed up by negative PCR (and a negative LFT later the same day). 3 months later exactly the same thing happened again - so even if I did have Covid one of those times it seems at least one of them must have been a false positive (albeit the internet says this is a 1000/1 shot). No symptoms either time.

    Also weirdly, a few of my other old LFT tests, that were definitely negative 30mins after doing the test, have a 'positive' line several hours later. My wife's never do this - and as far as I can tell this shouldn't really happen - but it might explain some of those 'positive' tests the press found lying around the tents at the summer festivals!

    Given you can spook these tests with orange juice I'm wondering if I'm just abnormally acidic!
