Unlike Brighton fans who can say that because they still have their Chelsea game against Wolves to look forward to on Sunday.

Both are fine pieces in their own way. Are you saying that phone bills and gas bills are pretty much the same thing?

Amusing discussion - if that's the right word - on TalkShite earlier about how great clackers and rattles were because they allowed clubs to "generate" an atmosphere when their fans and performances are so flat that the natural atmosphere is about as exciting as on Mars. Leicester were getting it right apparently. United should try it.

Then someone pointed out that if you wanted a proper atmosphere without trying to force it the place to go was Palace.

It was posted by one of our social guys in the heat of the moment and while I agree with the sentiment (that the plane gesture thing is a stupid thing to do) the posting of that tweet, and the tagging in of SP, was something we wouldn't typically do and it's something I've since had a word about.

That said, the offending video went viral and was RT'd thousands of times. I doubt one tweet from our account would have been the straw that broke the camels back. But still, we'll be more careful in the future."

That's bloody annoying as you might not even be watching it. The George put prices up on Christmas Day as well. Surprising as the previous year the landlord went around giving the ladies free Prosecco. But then they had a makeover in October to turn it into a poncey boozer.

Some times its worth paying a bit more to be away from all that shit. I don't understand why most pubs have wall to wall tvs that no one is watching. Don't get me started on the pokies.

Hedgehog 14-03-2019 09:51 PM

Just went to the shops and encountered a driver that hit all my annoyance buttons that I have posted on here over the years.

Bare in mind I'm driving on the right here...

1. At a filtered light left turn, arrow turns green and car in front of me sits going nowhere for about 3 seconds, so I honk my horn. They finally move and by the time I get to the light the turn arrow is red.

2. About a mile down the road, I'm going straight on, this same car is doing another left turn that does not have a filter arrow, but as I'm passing they start drifting out to the right into my lane so they can do a U-turn in one sweep... honk my horn take II!

3. As I pass this car, I'm ready to give them the evil eye, but low and behold they have fully very dark tinted windows on all window and there is no way to see who is driving. The fact that this is illegal really pisses me off more than anything as it rarely gets you a ticket, and if you do it's called a fixer ticket, where you get it fixed and then take your car to the police station to show them you fixed it. I hear a lot of people just go back to the window tint place (who should not be putting it on in the first place) and have it put back on until next time.

Some people really should not be allowed on the roads!

This. I dread a Saturday morning one when Palace are at home. The list of excuses for the cancellations gets longer by the week.

Today is the clutch has gone on one of the Yarmouth Lymington boats. Victoria has made things worse on the other route as instead of 3 ferries they only run 2. This means it takes longer to get on and off PLUS the traffic of all those cars dumped at once causes more chaos. Finally today I’ve been told that unless I get the 8pm back I have to wait until 2!!! Due to one of them being taken off and the other doesn’t have the right crew trained. Complete farce.

Some times its worth paying a bit more to be away from all that shit. I don't understand why most pubs have wall to wall tvs that no one is watching. Don't get me started on the pokies.

For sure. But there's a middle ground too.

My current local does pints of 4 Pines for $8 on Friday nights - the only night I get there after work in time for a beer. But, I'm moving house in a couple of weeks so researching a new local....

Sort of off subject, but as a resident of the IOW do you get some kind of discount for the ferries?

As a non-resident this little trip is mindbogglingly expensive! I read somewhere it is considered the most expensive per mile ferry in the world.
