    Official Football Thread

    What a fantastic atmosphere we had tonight! Really enjoyed that and it felt good to finally beat the dirty buggers, especially with 10 men after one of the most hopeless refereeing performances I have ever seen!

    You haven't gotten anywhere near full tourist. I went on holiday down south once and we visited Stonehenge. There were loads of Asian tourists and, I kid you not, some of them were taking pictures of the dandelions in the grass around the stones rather than the stones themselves!

    The Formula 1 Stuff Thread

    That's one of things I noticed about Edwards and Crofty. Edwards is so naturally passionate and you can hear it - Crofty seems to force stuff to try and make it seem exciting. Jake Humphrey isn't going to go back to F1 and I'm not a massive Steve Jones fan (although I prefer him to Lazenby). Will Buxton would be my choice. I do miss Lee McKenzie though - she had a rapport with the drivers unlike any other reporter. Lee was almost like she was talking to an old friend. Sky's interviews always seem stale and dull. A bit like their entire show...

    Silverstone 2019

    Get near one of the fences and run basically! As I was with school I never got the chance to see the podium but I still have some marbles from when we walked on the track afterwards. I've got some from the tyre tests as well as the Formula Student competition happens straight after before they clean the track. With a grandstand ticket you can sit in any grandstand you like across Friday and Saturday (so long as they aren't VIP ones) so be sure to try out a few places. Club is quite good for overtaking in the support races.

    The Formula 1 Stuff Thread

    I can't find the TV coverage thread so will post here instead. Is anyone else really starting to dislike David Croft? I've never been a huge fan anyway and always preferred Ben Edwards, but today he's really gotten on my wick. It's fair to say this was one of the most exciting races for a long time, yet he still managed to get sidetracked and laugh throughout the race. He was constantly interrupting or talking over Martin Brundle and is just downright annoying. I'm sure he's a nice guy, I just can't get away with him commentating and Sky should go for Ben Edwards or Jack Nicholls. Or put Brundle back on lead duty and get DC, Webber or Di Resta alongside him.
  6. Okay people. Things got a little silly there. Please remember that swearing and/or masked swearing is against the rules of the forum. Constructive criticism of Codemasters' products is more than welcome and people are free to share opinions; but do it sensibly and with respect for each other. As you can probably tell from my profile picture, it's been a bad day for me today so your lucky I'm not giving any official warnings out. I won't be as nice next time.

    Silverstone 2019

    Stowe is great for race day, loads I sat there in 2015 and you get to see all of the hanger straight, Stowe corner, Vale and the chicane (Club I think?). There's a screen there too and you can hear the starting grid. Brooklands is pretty good for qualy. The cars aren't that fast but you get as close as realistically possible to them. Maggots and Beckett's I'd imagine will be great too. Actually, I've just remembered that I watched Givovinazzi test the Haas at Magotts last year, the change of direction of the cars is insane!

    I had an interview earlier this week for a company that makes some of the interior components for Alexander Dennis busses.

    [Spoilers] The Grand Tour Megathread

    Richard will be fine. I've had 2 girlfriends, but it seems as though I won't ever be getting a third...

    Is the Fox newer? That can have a big say on it. Could also be that the Fox is viewed as less racery than a Clio.

    Did anybody watch the Williams documentary on BBC2? What a brilliant film that was!

    I think so, Matt might be a year older than me. Can't remember... Alex did have an MSC account, but there was another one or two with that as there name as well.

    Me and Matt are both 21 and if I remember right there's only a few weeks or a month or so between us.
