  1. Me as well - I was only 3 and have no memories of TV before then but my parents went over to friends of theirs who had a colour TV that day. We had a black and white set at the time and I'd never seen one before, so I can well remember the vivid colour of the Brazil shirts against the grass. I've also got memories of clambering all over the roof of my dad's VW Beetle for some reason that day without being caught doing it - in fact I was most likely doing that as that goal went in.
  2. Agreed - it's a thing of absolute beauty. It starts with Clodoaldo's effortless trickery at the start, skinning Italian players like they were traffic cones to practise dribbling round - it's as if he was a dad playing in his garden against some 5 year olds and it's all done at only slightly more than walking pace. You've then got the curve on the pass to Jairzinho and the way Jairzinho controls the ball and turns in an instant, the nonchalance of Pele's rolled pass to Carlos Alberto without even looking (apparently Pele knew that in that sort of situation he'd be haring up the wing), followed by the explosive finish at the end. Even the way the ball is kicked with the outside of the foot, the way it hits the net, slightly off the ground, still rising, the way the net billows and the colours of the kits and the grass is right. Perfection.
  3. The first few times are incredibly tough. I can remember psyching myself up to run one lap of Duthie Park when I first started and wondering if I'd actually make it. I was doing 10ks within a month and was then at the physio for a month after that...
  4. Aye, it's amazing how quickly you can increase your capacity once you start. I only started doing this 2.5 yrs ago and can't help thinking that I wasted all those years before now.
  5. The Queen of the South semi was an early start as well - check out the time of the BBC report: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/scot_cups/7341879.stm That was one of the longest most miserable journeys home from Hampden ever - it felt like coming back from a Scotland game
  6. I have porridge most mornings. Banana chips and honey for me.
  7. A self important convicted corporate fraudster. There's more info out there but that's the nub of it.
  8. BBC doing its bit for rehabilitating offenders by having ex-jailbird Conrad Black on the panel tonight. Yanis Varoufakis also on and UKIP naturally.
  9. Not a rapist then - only a total k unt.
  10. Interesting - hadn't heard about that.
  11. Salmond has referred to Trump as Trumf on 4 occasions - not sure why...
  12. Shouty Little Englanders to the fore droning on about sovereignty and borders. Could Isabel Oakeshott look any more snooty?
  13. To be fair, the Express is owned by Richard Desmond who's a renowned lover of all aspects of the UK other than its tax arrangements, hence the patriotic use of the Channel Islands and erm Luxembourg to funnel his profits through.
  14. We've not finished top of a qualifying group for the Euros or the World Cup for a quarter of a century...
  15. It's a fecking freak show of a job - only three managers in the last 40 odd years have got through it without being sacked.
