  1. Uber lose Private Hire licence

    All the chatter from cab drivers I've spoken to for months has been about this. By that, I mean those in London or the south in general when I've flown or caught a train there. I have no doubt they'll all be celebrating tonight. I don't think the appeal will be as straight forward or successful as many people seem to think today. I can see the decision being upheld.
  2. Football results today

    I hear Klopp and Koeman were considering taking part in Celebrity Job Swap. Until they realised it would have a shit audience on Merseyside.
  3. F1 2017

    Vettel caused that. Because he's a twat. I laughed. A lot.
  4. Boxing thread

    I forgot to say something else... The person I felt the most for last night was Nicola Adams. To have her fight cancelled at such late notice is absolutely appalling and her opponent should be subject to serious investigation to find out whether she should ever be allowed to box again. A blood discrepancy just before a fight? Hmmm.
  5. Boxing thread

    I do think they're both hyped. However, I'd say GGG is the all round better fighter who can offer more in future than Canelo ever could. I think Brook caused GGG more problems than Canelo did (for as long as his eye socket held up anyway). However, I still think the division is ripe for a real star coming into it and cleaning up. I like GGG as a person because he's clearly a very decent, honest and respectful guy. I'd just like to see him bring a bit more to his style and approach. To be honest, I was disappointed he didn't KO Canelo.
  6. Wheelie To Die For....

    Aye, I do recall a very large 4WD vehicle once scaring the shit out of an old couple in a Vauxhall Astra....
  7. Boxing thread

    That was a farce and an insult to boxing - the result, that is. I had Golovkin winning by 4-5 rounds but I'm afraid I still think he's hyped because of his style. I'm more concerned about an idiot giving it to Canelo by 7 rounds than anything else. The judge who scored it a draw needs a slap too - ideally from Anthony Joshua. Excellent fight, terrible end result and I don't think the fighters or promoters can be blamed. A rematch won't see a different result. It was patently clear that all the swinging of arms in the world from Canelo can't match the cutting down of the ring and sheer persistence of Golovkin. It'd end in a KO or serious injury next time. My view on Canelo changed dramatically when I saw how good a contest Khan gave him for a while. That was a mismatch on paper and, whilst the result was a stoppage, if Canelo couldn't take Khan out early than he was never going to do that to GGG.
  8. Wheelie To Die For....

    I'm with M8CKN on this. Yes he was a dick, but he was also a very unlucky dick. His life is likely to have meant as much to him as any of us. If I go back to my days in my M3 Cab in particular, I can think of multiple occasions when things could have turned out very different to how they did - and I might not be here to reflect on it. At 50 (I will be next year), you'd have hoped he had learned that it just isn't worth it - but how do we know this wasn't a single moment of madness he'd not done in years? Adrenalin. Dangerous stuff. I feel for his family and admire them for letting the footage be used. His death may save a life, perhaps even one of ours.
  9. 10 years ago we lost a legend

    Yep, along with Vatanen and Toivonen, McRae was someone that I thought held a lot of appeal to car enthusiasts and beyond, including me. As Garcon says, it is both tragic and ironic that his driving style pervaded his life to the point of his flying and cost him, and others, their lives. Rest in peace.
  10. The £1k mobile phone

    I'm not talking about your opinion on the phone. But the fact that you infer that any who likes it must be an Apple fan boy.
  11. The £1k mobile phone

    Do you not see the irony of that statement? You ask if people have a chip on their shoulders yet you immediately brand anyone who might consider a product to be impressive to be an Apple fan boy. You've just demonstrated exactly why the conversation on these things is so predictable.
  12. The £1k mobile phone

    Mac said it. Don't like it? Don't buy one. Most people coming out with crap like this were never even contemplating one. As for playing catch up, well we can all pick part of a device specification and say "this already has that". Once you start looking at how everything comes together and the true capabilities of a device, that's when things change. Furthermore, if you're not an Apple product owner already then you're going to miss the complete picture anyway. I'll be getting an iPhone X. I wouldn't even contemplate an iPhone 8 because I don't see the point in investing in a device that became a legacy product 15 minutes after it was launched.
  13. Post a pic of your car

    I think you did very well to avoid what could have been a far worse end result (for you rather than the car).
  14. Football results today

    Champions League night! Woohooo! Who do Arsenal play?
  15. Throwing away the traditional wallet.....

    That is Facebook Ads being clever, not Google Ads....
