Ye gods! Your lordship!!

Surely you are in possession of Stovold's latest?!!

Its rather quite obvious to any accomplished MC officianado what that last move was inspired by!-A rather classic example of a Wingbat throwback,as utilised by the great (and now dear departed) Maj Bruce De mongate-Chalfont (disgraced).

Moorgate

Indeed, Mr ex-mat. Well played, bien joue indeed. Yes sir.


I think you've inspired me to make a danegrous play - what do you think about Chalfont & Latimer, played as it is after Moorgate? It's a tough one and opinion is divided in the matter. Thuderbunk thought it appropriate but he ahdn't just avoided creel, and we do approach blarkle with that move.

Worrying. I rather fear I won't sleep tonight.

Blarkle may be circumvented by judicious application of the Felixstowe Tertiary Reshuffle, making it obvious that Bermondsey remains the only viable option.

However, the resultant may delay Mr Bear's exit from creel for some time...

Mr Twotter - I isn't in creel! Twas narrowly avoided.

I think we have to follow your play with an American Alliteration - Seven Sisters should see us right.

Now I can sleep soundly. Bon nuit.

You're not safe yet Mr Panda!!!

A great Austrian MC player...and one time rockstar (now dear departed),called Hans Holzel AKA-FALCO played a blinder of a game in 1986 where he escaped creel by utilising a move inspired by Mozart himself!The gambit was so successful-not only did it win him the game but,inadvertantly entered him into the UK music charts also,such was its magnificence!

Gentlemen,I give you...'The double Amadeus'..

Northwood Hills

Ps,its a little known fact that Mozart composed the magic flute whilst pondering whether to reverse shunt into T3!

Am currently reading ''The Northern line is for poofs!'' By a great northern MC player named Seth Blackstock.

Wonderful run of play. Reminds me of the Ulaan Bator warm ups before the 1927 Reykjavik Convention where Sir Roderick Fotherington-Fortescue-Ffolkes-Smythe was found in his hotel room dressed as a nanny and clutching a pot of geraniums. His antics were put down to stress and lack of moral fibre but it was later found that the real Sir Roderick was installed in a sanatorium in Gstaad where he passed the time conversing with his imaginary friend, Winston, and Lady Eridyce had taken his place to preserve his position on the team.

What a to do that was. One almost spilt one's cup of Oolong in one's excitement...

Stagnant play, balderdash

See here sailor chap go stroke yer prop shaft.
Stagnant implies decay and going orf a bit.
You of all people, should know that The Rules forbid use of a ploy associated with ones employ, { former or currant }. Hasselhoff was a life guard and that is associated with water and ships. MC denied, Dollis Hill for you.
Meanwhile

Sleep well and easy Ex- Matelot, elementry mistakes happen.

Mr Twotter and Ex-Matelot your escape plans

In the 2020 edition of Stovold's there will be the following move.

  1. Trains
  2. And
  3. Rails
  4. Deliver
  5. Independent
  6. Seekers
Now gentlemen I would suggest that Bond Street is your best option. Double O tactics are essential : Hornby is one of mine. This is a safe move as it does not alter history. Best of luck, hope to catch up with you at Victoria

If I may, M'Lud .....

Immediate transfer to the Elephant & Castle by invoking Schrodinger's Gambit of 1952 (remembering that if you cross Schrodinger's Cat with Pavlov's Dog, you get a pet that can lick Quantum Mechanics!)

Vlad the Emailer; a wily ol MC combatant, my regards to you sir: That is a throw hidden these many a year by the cobwebs of time. Old man Schwines would be proud to shake your hand. His proper name was Colin Dale but got the nickname after years of cellar and vintner work. Shush wines my boy, hear them speak , he'd say.

Pah!

A mere piffling trifle. One will see your Paddington on the devolving reverse quadrant and raise you

Custom house Mr Twotter an admirable ploy

One thinks that Mr Twotter plans a pincer movement, thus a WEST Halt at

Nice try my Lord, but you've forgotten the old Peacock Ploy made famous by the late Admiral Peacock (gawd bless 'im)!!

Hence, North Greenwich!!

Good God! The ole Peacock Ploy!

Well done, Angels! I haven't seen that damn Peacock for many-a-year!

(And thanks to Lord Grumpy for your kind words, Sir! I can see that you are a gentleman of the Old School!)

Therefore, inter alia per ardua ad astra in situ, I bypass Canary Wharf, who wouldn't, and go straight to:
