  1. New company car time

    You stopped? Wimp. I did 2 x 4 hour trips yesterday with no stops and I've done Brighton/Bournemouth without stopping many a time.
  2. What is it? Volvo?

    Definitely the S90 rear.
  3. Boxing thread

    It's the age old argument with fighters of his type and I don't disagree with the general 'doubt'. However, I'm not convinced he'll be a gassed out mess. Tired, yes, but not knackered. He's very young and very fit, and he's not looked even remotely tired when he's gone 6 rounds so far. Plus, Klitschko is no spring chicken and there is the obvious flaw of his chin. If Joshua connects, I think it'll be over very quickly.
  4. Boxing thread

    AJ by TKO or KO, by round 7.
  5. CHAVMOBILE Spotting...

    Rolled your car, again?
  6. Football results today

    Guardiola - £15m p.a. salary Mourinho - £13.8m p.a. salary Trophies stolen - 0-1 and likely to be 0-2.
  7. Post a pic of your car

    My FB friends on here will tell you I often mention it whilst I'm sat having a coffee early on a morning. I'm not a fan of modern Aston Martin vehicles but the noise from this thing and the V12 S's, in general, is epic. It isn't just the volume, it is the tone, the spitting, the cracking and the cackling. I know some of it is false sound but I don't care. It simply sounds fabulous.

    p.s. the size of the LED in this case won't matter if you use Blu-Tac. It can be moulded thinly around the light to a perfect fit. Then, if the colour of it bothers you, Blu-Tac can be coloured in with a black marker pen because it'll absorb the colour nicely. It is very easy to write on/apply colour. You'll never even know there is in an LED under it because the moulding of it means you can cover every single part of it.

    I use a tiny bit of Blu-tac to cover the LEDs. It has stayed on for years.

    Very sad news about Delroy. Easily the nicest guy on the programme and I hope they find a match for him. On the vendor messing Cabby around, you've done the right thing and can now move on and find somewhere else. I find it quite easy to forget people like that (after an initial rant). The world is full of them. Why people can't just give their word and do the right thing is beyond me.
  11. Laptop to large screen wireless connection

    I have tried so many different gadgets on this subject but they're all far too finicky if you're always in different places. Then, I found the best solution. I carry every possible TV connecting lead imaginable in my bag, including a 5m HDMI cable. It adds to the weight I'm pulling around but it has never let me down. The problem comes if you're going to hundreds of venues, each with different TV's. Not all even have a HDMI slot to plug a cable into, never mind an adaptor. I have HDMI, SVGA and even a set of old composite connecting cables (used twice, believe it or not). As a back up, I have a full digital projector packed in the bag too. As a back up to that I have a micro LED projector (nigh on useless but it would suffice in an emergency).

    As some know, there's an AM V12 Vantage S just 3 doors down from our house. He also has an RR V8 Supercharged thingy. The AM V12 is thunderous. The noise on a cold morning is particularly wonderful. I can hear him start it up, pull off the drive, and then listen to it drive all the way around the circle of houses and out on the top road to the roundabout. It is a good 1/2 mile and if I'm outside I can hear it all the way. One very cold morning, very early, I was sat outside and it was an especially quiet time. I heard the above to the point it would normally fade - and I then heard him absolutely cane it. The roads must have been empty and I could tell, by the noise, precisely where he was. I reckon that I probably stopped being able to hear it when he was about 1.5 miles away.

    De Gea may well move to Spain, yes. For £60m. We'll take that because Romero is an outstanding keeper - unlike Cabollero or Bravo or any other "O"s City sign. However, the house De Gea is looking for is probably going to be bought by Pep when he moves back there at the end of May...

    Zlatan? We have Rashford. As the change in pace, due to Zlatan's absence shows, we're also a much better side for it. He has his place but this could be the best thing that has happened to us for a while. p.s. speaking of sticking by players, any news on Joe Hart?
  15. Replacing the wife's car v1: which 5+2?

    Kia Carens Brilliant car and the 1.7 TDCi runs on fresh air (well, almost). £10k will get you a new shape 2013-2014 model with circa. 50k on the clock.

    He's said, this morning, that he won't be at City long if he hasn't won a trophy.... Oh dear. Pochettino is absolutely gutted too. He looks like a broken man after that defeat. As for Klopp and Benteke...

    Trophyless Pep. Wahahahahahahaha.
  18. Buy to let novice - first of many questions!

    That bloke (Paul Bohill) is incredible, as is Steve Pinner (the other you refer to). It is also revealing how appallingly badly some councils treat people, particularly single males. He just keeps as cool as a cucumber in some situations where others would feel both scared and tempted to bite back. I'm not too keen on Stewart McCracken, he's a real fecker when it comes to it and I find him quite distant compared to the others. Delroy Anglin is possibly my favourite. He has a way with words that is both funny and charming with some people. Some of the exploits of the debtors is staggering, particularly the business owners. There was one where they confronted an old bloke for some dog equipment company and he called McCracken a thug and a twat but was clearly doing his best to goad him. I'm also surprised how clueless the police seem in some circumstances.

    I recommend that anyone considering letting a property watches "Can't Pay, We'll Take it Away" on Channel 5. Seasons 3-6 are available to stream on their app and it is an excellent programme. However, some of the properties they evict people from and what they find...ummmm. Just watch it (but you'll never let a single property out again!).
  20. New pants please

    Jesus, that made me jump.

    How is your European venture going? If clubs like Celtic and Notts Forest have won the European Cup, how come City with all their zillions haven't? What about WonderPep, isn't he going to bring you the league title this year and global domination too? Hmm. How many league titles again? Hmm. You're correct United needed extra time to beat Anderlecht. Bet you wish you'd gone into extra time against Monaco...

    How many times have City won it, or even reached the final, Billy?

    The dodgy penalty would only really have been a factor had Atletico not scored last night, but I get the feeling of deflation. They did a superb job of getting to the stage they did though and certainly outshone the other English clubs in the tournament this year. It was a poor, poor year for English clubs in the CL. We just need United to win the Europa Cup....
  24. Buy to let novice - first of many questions!

    ^ That. Spot on. However, I'll add one more tip... When you buy a commercial property, don't buy it with the intention of working with the local council to restore a Grade II listed building to its former glory before you rent it out on a full repair and insured basis. You will, I assure you, discover that the council is a bunch of w*nkers who should all be fired and made to work 4 hours a week to quadruple their present working week time. Twats, total twats. Do NOT buy a listed building. *unless you want to buy ours, because it is for sale and, to coin a phrase, "I do you deal, special deal".
  25. Has anyone had a Mini Cooper D?

    Our eldest had a MINI Cooper for 4 years and loved it. Not a diesel though. I thought it was a brilliant car on windy roads and in City traffic and short trips. On the A1 it was still a very good car, albeit noisy at NSL + ANYTHING mph. £3k is enough to get a reasonable car. Her's booked at £4k when we changed it, with 70k on the clock and FSH, but had enough dents and scratches to keep the entire national franchises of Dent Masters and Chipsaway in business for 5 years. They're colour sensitive on price. Electric blue/white roof = rocking horse shit. Black = a bit of shit. Cream = shit.
