  1. Driverless cars - a moral conundrum

    Here's an interesting one: It's the year 2026 and Person A is in a Driverless Skoda. Lovely and safe. However, there's an accident up ahead, the car is doing 30mph and the computer has two options... a) Save the driver and run into and probably kill 10 pedestrians. b) Swerve into a wall and...
  2. The big BBBC question....

    I am an admirer of much of his skilful hold up play and ability in the air BUT he plays back to goal so our attacks go back before going forward and he is not that mobile or fast or good in front of goal .. my thoughts are that we are playing his game, playing to his "strengths" and not...

Presumably we haven't brought in Nathaniel Jarvis to warm the bench for a month...........so how is he going...

    OD - Week 5

    Full strength knackered team on a TIE, hoping not to slip up like last week! Question, how much would you value a 32yo proficient/masterful bowler at? Had a conundrum last night and not sure whether I made the right choice.

    Reading - Arsenal

    I covered this game last night, and if you didn't see it then congratulations. It was truly awful and a shocking example of the way the game has gone in the top flight. Here's the report, have a read and be thankful that Southend aren't in the Premier League! "What do you do with a problem...

    Nessie - Does it exist?

    Following on from the UFO thread I thought I'd pose this little conundrum. Given that we know less about what lurks below us in the darkest deepest recesses of the oceans and the possible creatures that exist there what are your thoughts on the possibility that Nessie exists and is in fact a...

    Toughest quiz of the year
