  1. I had a look for tickets for the Ashes, going for over £200 per day!! So that isn't happening but what is happening is I'm going to take in New Zealand v England test match in New Zealand from November 21st!! Tickets for a one-dayer in New Zealand v India were £20, so I'm hopeful of not paying over a grand to watch a full test match.
  2. I have had a little nose at the Macan online but I'm just not sure my midlife crisis is at that level yet (some would probably say it was) But I'm going with those listed above.
  3. 'It could be argued' & if you go by Bentley's form from last season, I've no doubt they will hope Raya is an upgrade. Me personally, I'm very happy with the Bentley signing & the other business we've done & a big part of that is not allowing our own key players to leave.
  4. Real are a club that very rarely form bonds with anyone, a player comes in for a boat load of money & within a couple of season he is replaced by someone who costs another boat load of money. Managers / Head coaches are regularly relieved of their duties after winning the league or Champions League because no matter what it's not good enough for them / their president. It's always left me bemused at the way they do things, something is broke / not working, it's ok, we'll sack someone or sign someone for another ridiculous amount, the problem they have is what happens when no one wants their scapegoat or no one can afford to take their expensive 'flop'? FFP or whatever it is called in the ultimate echelons of football now mean clubs have to balance their books accordingly. They could just loan him out like they've done with James Rodriguez, if they can find someone willing to take him at whatever price but then it also comes down to Bale himself, what's in it for him? He's a multimillionaire that is undoubtedly on a ridiculously large contract whether he plays or not, so what's to stop him from just staying in Madrid & pocketing his astronomical wages each week / month? Nothing & that way he's never risking getting injured or actually having to put any effort in to earn those wages & that is the problem with these big clubs stockpiling players. Surely it's got to start catching up with clubs soon?
  5. Thanks guys, much appreciated. I've only looked on money supermarket so far but just by changing my answer on one question to yes, which was 'am I the owner of the vehicle' (or will I be)? Saved me over £250 & then by switching my answer to yes on 'do I own any other vehicles', (which I will once I buy the new vehicle, I've now got it down another £80 or so!!
  6. On the back of me buying a new motor in the near future, does anyone have any tips for buying car insurance or is it as simple as searching through the comparison sites? I just feel like I must be missing a trick here & I could potentially save a bit of money somewhere along the lines here.
  7. Yeah, it's something I've found odd, for me the division is the weakest it's been for a while. Working my way through the teams, Derby, WBA, Middlesbrough, Fulham, Swansea, Stoke, Birmingham, Barnsley, Luton, Forest, Wednesday, Brentford, Charlton, Huddersfield, Hull & QPR have all either got new managers or managers of very little experience of The Championship & when you then factor in the financial situation of the likes of Swansea, Birmingham, Wednesday, Stoke, Derby, Middlesbrough, Hull, West Bromwich, QPR & Charlton that are looking to cut their budgets because of FFP issues or ownership issues or parachute payment issues, the strength & stability of a lot of clubs just isn't there. Leeds also seem to be rumoured with losing a few of their more regular decent performers from last season. There isn't a more stable club than us in the division & I really think that could count for a lot. As for your point on Brentford, I think they are seen as being a club that will be at a constant level due to their blueprint that they work within, it could be argued that they've upgraded at keeper by bringing Raya in & the addition of Jansson won't do them any harm & they've signed the Danish U21 captain who's a midfielder but how they deal with the potential loss of Maupay is anyone's guess but it would have to be anticipated that they won't find an instant 20 goal striker. I also find the top goalscorer odds a little strange, fair enough Mitrovic at the top of the pile having recently signed a new contract with Fulham but Maupay & Roofe look unlikely to be in the division & I think there's great value in Bobby Reid (if Colin plays him in this division) Zohore who will surely be WBA main striker having just joined & WBA tend to score for fun & even our own Fammy seems to be very nicely priced as long as he can avoid any lengthy injuries. All worth an each way punt in my opinion. Only time will tell I guess.
  8. They also have no more pre season friendlies according to Sky, over 2 weeks with no games seems like a bit of a risk to me, they’ll either be very rusty or very well rested. Just seems a bit odd to me.
  9. William Hill have now dropped their price to 4/5 for City to finish in the top half, value now gone I’d say. Good luck to us who got on at 11/10.
  10. I’m now in a position to start test driving vehicles, I’m booked in for Tuesday with Range Rover to test drive the New Evoque & Thursday with Mercedes to take a GLC out. I’m then probably just looking at Jaguar for a test drive in the E & F Pace as I’m undecided between those two as to which one I prefer. Anyone have any further opinions as to what I should or shouldn’t be looking for / at? All advice is greatly appreciated.
  11. For what it’s worth, I’ve taken the remaining parking spot. Because of my personal situation I decided to hell with it & bought my season ticket this morning & the added bonus of having parking very close to the ground is massive for me because I simply can’t walk long distances. It works out at less than £10 per game & I now have the peace of mind of not having to hunt around for a spot or having to walk too far. And it’s much appreciated.
  12. No, SkyBet & Ladbrokes have both put limits because of my winnings. Ladbrokes told me that it was because they basically weren’t making enough money from me so restricted me to £1 per bet!! I’ve not bet with them since & just recently SkyBet no longer allow me the weekly reward & have stopped me from getting the best odds guarantee on horse racing as well as limiting how much I can bet on the football to less than £10 on some football bets but I’m quite a lot up on SkyBet. William Hill, who I have put the larger bets on with (because of their large odds on us), haven’t put any restrictions on me yet but the advantage is that these bets won’t pay out until May 2020 so I should be able to take them for a bit before they take action.
  13. Just put another £200 on City to finish in the top half! William Hill still have us at 11/10 where as all the other sites I’ve checked have us at odds-on to finish top half! Plus SkyBet have just put restrictions on my account! I questioned this & apparently their investors have decided this! They really don’t like losing money
  14. Absolutely awful decision! I guess we’re just lucky it’s happened while we’re well in control (he says, hoping we don’t capitulate).
  15. In a way I’m glad, I had fears of them waiting weeks to find a replacement & it completely ruining their preparations for the coming season. Now hopefully they’ll get a bit of continuity & be able to build from here.
