    Indeed. I started reading Q. It wasn't bad, but somehow I just lost interest.

    How far did the Blissett name influence you to pick it up?

    About 80%, probably. Other 20% was that it sounded a bit like The Nane of the Rose (it wasn’t).

    Genuine question as I don't know the answer
    Is the fact we have spent more seasons in the Premier League than them a possible measure that we are now "bigger" ??

    Yep it certainly would be...if records began in 1992.

    A company in any industry could do worse than an army of Chris Wood's. Loyal. Hard Working. Functional. Tempered by that nagging feeling that they are nodding while not quite understanding your instructions.

    So is it "were" bigger or "are" bigger ? You said they are bigger in any measure you can think of ......... well there's one I thought of .

    That would be fantastic. I remember Certs' motivating speech last season about us watching Watford v Newcastle in the sun with beer sloshing in our bellies. Imagine Alan Rickman delivering that missive.

    But only the clinically insane would consider it a valid measure.

    Reminiscent of my Foucault’s Pendulum experience.

    Emma Thompson was about to get our call for the IBB gig but then Olivia Colman happened.

    Did we actually field a Foucault?

    Part of the Vialli mob?

    Don’t know how he got the number but Fry’s agent is ringing it off the hook over here.

    ‘Stephen wants to be Keighley. Stephen is Keighley.’

    Seemed to annoy him when I suggested Hugh Laurie should apply for the BW Horn role.

    You’re thinking of Mark Foucault, last WFC player to score a top flight hattrick before Friday.

    Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic are the scrabble champs.

    City got a great write up about shared club ownership today. It seems if you do it with hoards of cash it's successful. If you do it in a sustainable less glamorous way its not such a model for success.

    I agree but that is a quantity issue (more coverage) not quality (accuracy of content)

    Thanks, TCT.

    Btw, did you prop up the paper on your pet iguana?

    Looks like reptilian flesh at the bottom.

    I think so.
    I seem to remember the opposition fans singing "you're gonna win Foucault"

    HB1 finally breaks into the mainstream media and not a bad word about Michael Oliver or Jon Moss in sight.

    Selective journalism.

    I was reading it in hospital this morning after surgery last night. When I saw the name I had to check if I'd died and gone to hell...

    think I'm going to change my username to vaginal_blood_fart or something, just in case any of my posts ever get picked for the national press.
