  1. my iPad letters/numbers are playing up, I was just off to work when I posted and didn’t have time to edit.
  2. My lad had a partial acl tear in July 2018, it was wrongly diagnosed at Taunton Musgrove hospital where they told him it was a strain that would take 6 weeks to recover. They had x rayed him, but no mri scan! 3 months later and tons of physio it was no better. Back to the Drs, and he was given an appointment with a specialist, a few months later he finally got given an mri scan. That was when the severity of the injury was picked up. He finally had an acl operation in December 2019, he is now recovering and the long road b@ck has started. For me, the biggest thing for your lad would be to get an mri scan, that is the only way imo that you will get to find out what the injury is. Looking back over the 18 months my son was in limbo, now makes me wish I had found the cash for him to h@ve had a private mri scan. It would have been worth every penny and speeded the whole thing up. Good luck to you and your lad, let’s hope he recovers soon
  3. I’ve corrected it for you
  4. With respect Nogbad, more people are coming into this country from outside the eu than within. Trade deals that get done will no doubt include other countries wanting their citizens to be able to come to the UK. Australia have reportedly turned down a UK deal that would of allowed free movement between the two countries, I wonder what India and the like will want............... i personally think that the levels of immigration will actually go up in the future.
  5. Thanks for all the advice and information, greatly appreciated
  6. Thanks everyone i’ve read a lot about the pickpockets etc, hopefully be ok, as it’s my motto to be streetwise whenever I go to large cities ( famous last words!). Will now definitely go down the route of printing tickets before leaving this country
  7. Re your last sentence, I’ve found it, it is.
  8. Apologies, not City related. I know there are a few on here that have been to watch Barcelona play at the camp nou. A few of us are going over to watch them play Real Sociedad in March, when others have been did they get match tickets online, or wait until getting to Barcelona before buying tickets? Thanks in advance
  9. In about 1980 we had a football special train to Carlisle which was full, it was an FA cup tie. We must have had about 6-800 up there for that one. I can’t remember what time the train left, but it was bloody early....... and a bloody long way! edit, just looked it up, 1981....1-1 draw.
  10. Many football fans couldn’t stop slagging off referees, they wanted the perfect game, they wanted every decision to be 100% correct. Every week on this forum a referee would get slaughtered for making in his eyes an honest split second decision...... from the one angle he saw it. We must have cameras everyone said, whilst people with experience of refereeing knew what this would bring. Well now the fans have what they wanted, but seem even more unhappy!. Referees have always had the hardest job in football and part of that was having to put up with the ‘experts’ in the stands, a lot of which don’t even know all the laws of the game that they pay to watch! So here we are, var is giving fans what they asked for..................
  11. Would it be that much of a pay day though?. The reason I say that is that we only get 45% of the gate for FA cup ties? Yes we would get tv money, but only gate money from the equivalent of a approximately 12,000 home crowd.
  12. More than half of our side had also had that amount of break as well!
  13. We played Forest away in the fa cup in 1981, we lost 2-1. They were the European cup holders at the time, and the week before had lost in the intercontinental cup final, the forerunner to the World club cup which Liverpool hold.
