    England Preview

    WHAT’S THE MAIN FOCUS FOR ENGLAND? Here in the UK, we’re all still stuck in the mire of what has inevitably been dubbed ‘BridgeGate’. You might think that weeks of press speculation, pages of gossip, one sacking, one resignation and one very publicly snubbed handshake would be enough to satiate...

    For you guitarist types

    I have bought from e-bay the bits to assemble a Fender Strat'. From a conversation with my on, we decided that Strat's are colour coded according to their owners. e.g black - Eric Clapton white - Hendrix red - Hank Marvin. Mine is navy blue (coincidentally!) What colours do you associate...

    Barnard & McCormack

    Something that's been pointed out on SOL which hadn't occurred to me, but maybe has to some of you more cynical types - by sitting out Saturday would NOT be cup tied were they to leave in January. Oh dear, I feel quite gloomy. :darkcloud:

    Question Which Blues player would you least like to room with.

    Personally I think my worst nightmare would be Ian Joyce. I am sure he is a really nice family guy by all accounts but I can just see him being one of those annoying American types that want to tell you all about how great New Jersey is and all this god bless america bollocks. I can also see...

    Tubby Alan Wiley

    There's no room for sentiment in football. Alan Wiley should remind himself of that this morning when he hauls himself out of bed and trudges to the mirror. He'll suck in his gut and puff out his chest, he'll flex his arms and stiffen his chin, he'll even do that thing where you try and lift...

    Question Who does the food shopping in your house.

    Lads, I am at a crossroads. Mrs DtS and I have until recently done the food shopping as a joint effort. We rarely go and do a massive shop rather we go once a week and get stuff for the week. However it has come to my attention that if Mrs DtS goes on her own that we come back with so much...

    Best / Most wanted Power Tools.

    I was reading the Screwfix catalogue last night looking for Xmas presents and found myself wishing I had more power tools. The best power tool I own is a De Walt cordless drill which I simply could not do without. I often find myself nodding towards builder types with De Walt cases and massive...
