Good day to one and all.
Some breaks in the cloud now but the guessers are pessimistic.

They could of course be wrong - yet again.

Hello

I blame Nigel and Woody for last nights transfer paper cock-up. Anything to stop a team they hate.

They cannot defend the indefensible. They have no defence. By doing nothing they are guilty as charged.

Youngest daughter is visiting from OZ and in the past has always been put on her Mothers car insurance as a temporary named driver. She has a British and Australian driving licence, is dual British and Australian Citizen and no accidents and claims etc.
This year she has been declined because she is not resident in the United Kingdom. The reason being that if she has an accident and leaves the country, due to rule changes in her home country the UK insurance company will not be able to pursue her for costs. It applies to visitors from Australia, NewZealand and the United States at the moment.Our Insurance Broker says it is now pretty widespread among the car insurance companies and is a problem..
Could be of interest to a few people on Trabb, and i don't feel bad about putting it on because it is useless information to the majority..

Well it just proves my point that anyone connected with Utd is illiterate and can't even fill out forms properly. The uneducated masses of Manchester reside at Old Trafford.

Not much in attack either! Is it Dupay or paid too much??

You are suggesting that a Porsche, driven by , say,Jenson Button, is equally as low a risk as when it's driven by a pop-star's precocious, spoilt 17-year old snot-nosed spawn?

I drove down to Spain many years ago, and I remember I had to buy a Spanish bail bond for my trip-do they still make you do that?

No they don't. It's in Trafford!

Is Nigel Florentino Perez in disguise?

Just had a 10min torrential downpour here.

Definitely not him according to Forbes his Net worth: 1.86 billion USD (2015).
Didn't get an education though, unlike me.

Just got back from lunch with a friend and ex work colleague, whom I've not seen for some 27 years. Wish I looked as young as he does 27 years later. Lantern started swinging from side to side, and one pint developed into several more.
Best not leave it another 27 years was the parting suggestion

the overall low height and tent is due to canal tunnel requirements enroute.

The boards on top are probably for the menfolk to lie on and walk it through the tunnels

Man United's win rate in the first 50 games under LVG is exactly the same as David Moyes first 50 games.

Man Utd's transfer rate is a bit less impressive

Please, everyone, stretch your arms out in front of you and look at your hands.


You will find (on 99.99% of them) - 8 fingers and 2 thumbs.


Ah, the opposable thumb, that thing of beauty that set us apart from most of the other mammals, but most of us still can't count fingers.

Good morning all. Damp out there. Stayed up until 130am watching a film. Still woke at just after 5 but managed another hour and a bit.

Love her music.
