Important!
« on: March 10, 2019, 03:14:12 PM »
Forget Brexit. Forget whether Shemima Begum should be allowed back in the UK or not. Forget whether Anachronistic Tango is an album worthy of the band, Man.

This morning, I ironed my subbuteo pitch. I've only done this once before since 1960 something. It's like a bowling green. It's beautiful. You may share my joy.

Senility, Colin. Senility.

Ah yes, senility, that awful loss of short-term memory. So, blimey, what brought on the ironing of the Subbuteo pitch?

My senility is showing itself in the inability to learn painful lessons. Three years ago I slipped on the hill where I walk my dog and broke my collarbone on frozen ground. Last month I did exactly the same thing in exactly the same place and broke two ribs. Wife more concerned for my mental state than my physical.

That's great, Rob. Get some board (MDF?) and chop off the corners. Then place the board on top of two chairs, level up and away you go!

Hi Nick. What prompted the ironing of the pitch, wasn't just old age senility, but purchased some blockboard for the bed (don't ask), and the leftovers with a bit of Heath Robinson, being made into a board for the sub. Then me and pals Nige and Phil will be having a tourno. Phil used to play sub for Lancashire. Saddo! 😁

Sounds good. Can you film it and post it here? Maybe edit it down to just the goals perhaps!

I've got that there astro pitch, but having spent years rolled up, I just can't flatten it.
