    The commentators really gabble on that, and they’ve got really strong accents. Might as well be speaking a different language.

    sleepless got a reaction from south inch in Burnley   
    From the BBC:
    New Burnley owner Alan Pace says he intends to adopt a unique approach to running the Premier League club.
    Pace's ALK Capital Investment Group has spent around £170m to take an 84% controlling stake in Burnley.
    Unlike most of the Premier League's overseas owners, American Pace has moved to the UK from New York to take a hands-on role in running the Clarets.
    "I don't think you have ever seen anyone like me," said the 53-year-old former Wall Street banker.
    "You certainly haven't seen someone like me come in to run a football club and interact and live with the community where they are going to operate."
     
     
    Pray God this never happens to Saints.

    I've had good feelings and bad feelings about our games lately and am still waiting for a win.  So if Fate is listening I have no interest in this game whatsoever.

    Thanks, glad you liked it!
    I don't know a huge amount about what happened to Marjory. She married a man from Dundee, so I guess her bad luck continued! She had one daughter and died aged 78. That's all I know.
    Just finished the first draft of the next one yesterday. Aim to have the final draft done by Easter.

    I'm not sure the Barossa Club was there in 1936...
    But I'm looking to bend the truth to get a cup win against Celtic into it. We did beat Celtic in the cup, but it was a couple of weeks later than my timeline...

    what he did with United was amazing. We didn't realise at the time how special the New Firm, with Fergie at Aberdeen and McLean at United really were. We'll never see the old firm challenged like that again.
    Brilliant manager.

    I saw a parcel arriving today with a franking mark showing a double headed eagle very similar to the one tattooed on my arm. It disappeared quickly, so I think my Christmas present has arrived...

    you're right on both counts, sadly. In this case, there was a majority of women on the jury.  There does seem to be evidence that women find rape defendants guilty less often than men.
