    This is the sort of joke that Mrs. Brigstocke would appreciate.

    You should tell 'er, Marcus

    When a female swan gets married against her parents' wishes, does she Pen elope?

    In most egg laying creatures, it's the female who produces ovae. I think male seahorses carry the young but I'm not sure if their men are layers.

    If horses make a calip, calop sound when they're trotting, does a 3 legged, Irish horse calip so?

    Me too - hate drinking crap overpriced beer round Wembley. We will be making our base camp in Pinner and then tubing in from there to Wembley Park

  8. Risky strategy. Water levels in the Gade and Colne are very low.

    Mmmm. I'm really not sure of how strong this statistical analysis is. We should really base it against the team we have done best against this season - that would then be a fair comparison and remove any bias of just cherry picking one result.

    We've beaten Crystal Palace three times this season. I mean, when was the last time Crystal Palace laid a glove on Man City?

  12. That's the sort of luck we will need. 19 MC shots to 5 for CP, yet CP won 3-2 scoring with all their on target strikes.

    Deulofeu runs clear, Kompany pulls him down... LAST MAN!

    Ref only brandishes a yellow card because its Man City, despite VAR.

    You just know it will happen.

    Rather bizarrely I was thinking exactly that scenario on my way to work with the exact same outcome because it's Kompany who is untouchable. Some of the tackles he has got away with have been incredible especially compared to Holebas sending off vs West Ham

    Jay is back in town. Hope he's eligible to play on Saturday.

    More likely Kompany hospitalises one of our players but only gets a yellow and everyone agrees “he’s not that sort of player”.

    Has there been an official list of pubs published re which are Watford and which are Man City?

    If so can someone post it on this forum please.

    It's the same as the semi final.

    OK I was at the SF but I don't have a copy of that list either. I went into the Ibis hotel for the Semi, but it was full of Wolves fans.

    My pins are not the greatest these days so I can't walk to far without my knees getting very painful, so I am trying to find a pub that is very close to our end of the stadium I'm in block 551.

    The Arch was OK at the SF...nice curry meal, beer not too bad at £5 a pint; interesting approach to a large glass of wine being a plastic half pint full to the brim for £6...missus very pleased with that. Not rammed either so easy enough to get served and get to the trough in time.
    Not a fantastic atmosphere but we made up for that in the ground.
    In fact, forget all this...stay away.

    True but I've been preoccupied with Tsitsipas in Rome and the fourth line of 'Abide With Me' !

    Not sure whether it’s the pre-flight beers kicking in, but I’m starting to believe we have a chance. Fully expect this optimism to dwindle over the next 9 hours of flight time, though for now, it’s a lovely feeling.

    The best tsitsipas is in Greece. Fresh from the oven.

    Heard tonight that Box Park are charging £10 a head to get in. If there wasn't already a big enough incentive not to go there then surely this has done you all a favour.

    They aren't, they gather the eggs from the female. BTW, plural is ova, singular is ovum. It's Greek, not Latin.

    It's not Greek.

    They are charging £10 to people to ‘guarantee’ an entry before 3pm. It’s still free if you want to take your chances without that guarantee though.

    A con basically.
