    What now?

    A deliberate handball on the line to prevent a goal is a red card, why not the keeper there?

    Also why is the linesman so reticent to put his flag up for offside where there is 3m of daylight? There is no doubt to be benefited...

    Pfft, Since when has that been a concern of English teams? Let's just stick with who's scored the most goals?

    150k votes for green and lib dem, I'd guess 90,% of those are going to khan. It's a feature, not a big of the London gla voting system...

    Any further tips? Feels simple ish to me but also worried about messing it up.

    There may well be a more sophisticated approach but I would place wardrobe in alcove, drill 2 holes each side at 2/3 height, mark the brick or plaster, remove wardrobe, drill and plug, then replace wardrobe and fix in place... That won't come down without ripping it down

    As long as you're not climbing on top of it then a couple of 2x2 pieces will hold everything level.

    Jon Butterworth's latest book is on the subject and as good as any other approach outside of an academic course. "A map of the invisible".

    Ours was renovated by the seller, who is a builder, prior to us buying it. Most of the work is "ok", and passed the structural survey anyway, but a lot is quite bodgy and clearly done by a jack of all trades. I guess they spent 10k excluding self labour and upped the price by 40k. I really would have preferred them to leave it and just inflate the price.

    I don't follow this thread regularly, bit I presume VAR has been covered and the conclusion was it is an ill thought through stain on the game that will damage the game more than the ESL would have?

    The band of the mipky way rises and falls throughout the night, it passes through some obvious constellations though, I'll look into them up. Easiest to find them and then stare at the milky blackness
