Man C win 7-2 and Guardiola is a happy manager, Man U draw 0-0 and Mourinho is a happy manager. Whose fans are the happiest?
To be fair, they're probably all happier than Arsenal fans. :mrgreen:

I honestly think that if this is another barren season for the spuds, that the team will break up.

Edit: Just remembered DM is in the UK. Can we do a deal, mate?
Absolutely. The mansion is in my name, and you have 2 rooms for life. With access to the kitchen so that Chef Parahandy can cook for me.

And I'll buy you a Sex Pistols T-shirt. xx

Re: Thailand to the UK by road

I think driving back to the UK will be a great adventure for you if it turns out to be feasible, but I think you should ship your books and paintings back to the UK or you're likely to have problems with Customs at every border you cross.

This thread started off with a lady not being contacted after an interview for a job which she eventually got and wandered on to Home Pro??????

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

Just a thought, but it might be worth opening an account with a UK bank that has a branch in Bangkok (I think HSBC has one), which could presumably be transferred to a UK branch when necessary.

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

No problem, VS, though I don't think I'll be much help... 1. I was lucky. My son-in-law's father had been trying to sell his elderly mother's flat for several months without success, so the rental path suited both of us. However, I did look at a couple of (unsuitable) places through an agent, who as...

Re: Roast Beef

If you go to the French butcher, just tell him you want a nice joint of beef to do a roast dinner for your wife and I'm sure he'll give you something appropriate. If you don't speak French, keep it simple. He's a nice fellah.

Re: What Nationality Are You

I wasn’t aware of the USA and American difference. Surely North America (USA, Canada, Mexico etc.), South America being numerous countries (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay to name but a few). I imagine most people take American or North American to be the USA. :cheers: If someone refers to North ...

Re: Books

You should try the Cormoran Strike series (just 3 so far, I think) by Robert Galbraith (rather surprisingly, aka JK Rowling). London-based PI, ex-military police, lost half a leg in Afghanistan. Now a BBC TV series as well.
