  1. 2017 Fitness Thread

    Inspired by Torino at the back end of 2016, I will be posting up on here soon......once I have had a think about what I want to achieve. Please join in with any fitness goals (whatsoever!) however great or small they may be for 2017.
  2. M2 or Macan

    I've already chosen the M2. But would like a Macan for Mrs next car.
  3. Riz - Have Tissues Handy...

    Wopps will buy you one for old times sake. The good old R32 days.... when the Internet was pure and virginal.
  4. Boxing thread

    Just a general boxing thread, as I know a few people on here are interested. Old stuff, new stuff, current fights and fighters, classic fights and fighters. Anything at all boxing related....bring it to the table
  5. Boxing thread

    It did surprise me how CAN struggled against the relentless coming forward of GOL. I thought GOL would tire in the latter rounds because of his age and CAN would land a few bombs. If anything it was the opposite. Good defence from both of them. And they can both take a shot. Any one of those punches....especially the body shots - would leave the average bloke off the street in a heap on the floor.
  6. Boxing thread

    Fantastic fight. After the MAY v MCG circus the other week (did people honestly pay to watch that?) it was everything a top notch fight should be. ... Except the result. GGG should have got the decision in my book. I think he is actually a robot - just never stops coming forward! NNMM might even admit that GGG is a decent boxer now
  7. Boxing thread

    Still no idea who I fancy for GGG v Can. I hardly ever stay up for a fight. But I will try for this one. Or get up early!
  8. The £1k mobile phone

    I read that the $/£ issue isn't as punitive as first appears, as the US price doesn't include State sales taxes - whereas the UK price includes VAT.
  9. The £1k mobile phone

    If i was on the Apple Eco system, i would actually probably end up getting the iPhone X (even at £1k) as I do think it's a big jump on the other iPhone models and makes them look outdated and obsolete.
  10. The £1k mobile phone

    I do find it a bit bizarre that a lot of the press are getting so excited about the latest iPhone X. Is it not just generally catching up to the opposition? This article seems to sum it up for me..... http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11921942 I recently went from a Galaxy S6 Edge to an S8. Only because my Mrs wanted a non work phone for private use....so I gave her the S6 and the business got me the S8. The change makes no significance difference in my everyday life whatsoever. I would never upgrade if i had to pay.
  11. Music streaming

    On a side note, I do love BBC 6 music now...... Especially Sean Keaveney (breakfast show) and Radcliffe & Maconie (1-4pm). Both very funny. Diverse music and no ads.
  12. Music streaming

    I don't use any of the main paid for services anymore. I just use tune-in Radio for free (mainly over Sonos or PC when working). Search for music type and save the best stations as favourites. I have got some great specialist stations saved (Northern Soul/Modern Soul/Soulful House/Lovers Rock/Samba etc). Many are ad free with some good djs who do it for the love of the music. My staple listening now is Radio 6 Music - combined with 365Soul, Soulbeat Radio and Generation Soul Disco Funk Radio all on Tune in.
  13. Catch him Derry

    I know this has gone viral - and it sure made me laugh. I think it's the accent that adds the comedy element..
  14. Catch him Derry

    You're tiring him out. He's got no legs left, like McGregor
  15. Golf R in house.

    Why lads in their 20s shouldnt be driving cars as powerful as a Golf R. https://www.yorkmix.com/news/video-pix-car-crashes-house-york-updated/
  16. Golf R in house.

    What is Talon CB? If it's a mod......i really, really hope for his sake that he has informed his insurer. Which he won't have.
  17. Boxing thread

    Well at least Mayweather v McGregor gave the (over)paying public something for their money. I haven't watched it - but press reports seem to suggest it was a likely outcome. Mayweather takes him past 25 minutes (MMA bout length) then dishes out a boxing lesson to the younger, fitter, stronger, more powerful man. Punch landed ratio was 53% to 26%. Says it all really. Love him ir hate him - Mayweather is one of the world's greatest defensive boxers and strategists. I will be looking forward to watching the Cotto v Kamegai fight later. I won't bother watching the Mayweather walkover when it's eventually shown outside PPV.
  18. Boxing thread

    One of our office girls said her boyfriend has subscribed for the fight PPV - first time he's done so - and a lot of their friends are going to their house to have something to eat and watch it. I asked if they knew what time it was going to be on? They didn't.
  19. Boxing thread

    McG is going to have to be exceptional to land much leather on Mayweather. Even though I know very little abbot him - I can't see how he will succeed when so many great boxers have failed. But.....that was the Mayweather of old. Is he still the same standard??
  20. Boxing thread

    So what's going to happen with Floyd V McG? I know Mayweather - but I know stuff all about McG and MMA in general.
  21. Post a pic of your car

    Speaking of green.... Wife has swapped the Cooper S for a JCW. It's a Mini tastic colour combo! Old and new
  22. Apple Watch launch

    Each to their own imo. I am currently trying to give myself more tech free time. I think life was simpler (happier?) pre digital overload. So I have switched off work emails on my phone/tablet - and only check them on my pc during office hours now. I feel much happier not being dragged into thinking about work after hours. I know you must embrace tech - or get left behind. But I am trying to make it work for me.....not it controlling me. The BT spam filter thing is incredibly efficient too. Not one cold call in months - used to get 2 or 3 a day. Good work BT! Sorry.....drifted off topic. I see a fair few people with Apple Watch in business meetings. Very distinctive styling - so I do note them.
  23. Boxing thread

    I like both of them....but wa my Canello. GGG didn't look quite as good in his last fight imo. Canello is consistently good. Both class boxers - whom I admire greatly. So hopefully a good fight ......best man wins...... and most importantly no injuries.
  24. Boxing thread

    What's the thoughts on Canello v GGG? I find it a tough one to call ........ but hopefully may be a great fight.
  25. This made my blood boil.... https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/may/25/george-cheese-bullied-mechanic-killed-himself-audi-garage-not-to-blame-coroner It is being reported as Sytners Reading on AudiSport.
