No Spotted Dick in menus because of the PC police is bollocks,

actually no it's not in many places but I am happy to read that you still frequent places where you can get a bit of dick.

It’s because very few want to eat it, nothing to do with the PC police!  My biggest concern is that no one in the uk seems to be able to manage to cook a decent sweetbread nowadays, they’re always deep fried in a coating for so long that they disappear and only used as an addition.  Sweetbreads should be the star of a dish not a poorly executed addition purely used to make the menu read better.

I feel some sort of `mystery shopper` exercise is called for Tone. The masses need to know and you`re the man for the job.

I'd love to help but sadly one of my biggest hates in life is shopping. Praise God / Allah / Buddah or whoever for Amazon.

I had imagined you more as taking over from the late Michael Winner and visiting fine dining establishments to report on the availability of various non-pc foodstuffs.

No shopping involved.

I would generally agree but would add that most of the ridiculous things that are deemed 'not acceptable' because of PC are largely urban myths created by people with some kind of cause e.g. there have never been moves to ban Christmas for fear of offending Muslims, it's just a story invented by people with an anti-Muslim agenda. Spotted Dick (to use your daft example) is still a perfectly legitimate pudding, it has even appeared on my daughters primary school lunches menu (and you don't get a lot more PC than primary schools!). It's harder to find these days because a steamed pudding with raisins in just isn't so popular in these days of sugar and cream fuelled fantasies!

Came across this Rich (pardon the expression) and found it quite amusing. Just a bit of fun.

On the real names on forums thing, it's a hard one but I'm generally for the option to be anonymous. The reasons why:

*Employers like to look prospective employees up on social media. Would (so long as it's legal) rather keep my work and private life separate.

*Maybe some vicious individuals who are posters who may take exception.

*Maybe some readers who are non posters who maybe vicious. Could be literally anyone.

*General online trolls and much worse than trolls. With a real name, trolls who may range from anything like mischief making to vicious trolls they can cause chaos in someone's life.

*To feed into fact one again. Employers have strict social media policies increasingly these days and I'd rather not risk discipline or worse as some snooping line manager sees something they take exception to. (Unless is really bad of course in which case it's on me).

*General fraudsters. Real name helps them a lot. Not saying they're on here just generally there's plenty out there.

So IMO there's a million reasons or at least a good body of evidence to remain anon online.

To illustrate my point about the work stuff mainly.

Writing that just jogged my memory. Back in August, out of blue I got a follow request on Twitter.

Was internal recruiter at my work. Do I want him who I don't really know, yet who is quite influential at the company with more insight?

No. No, thank you. I would rather not.

Just one thought to add into the mix. If there had not been football related violence, would fans have been able to sit and watch the game in the stadium with a beer?

Im glad you cant. Its very disruptive at rugby having to get up every five minutes to let someone pass you one way with a beer and the other way with a bladder full of piss.

Maybe it was a one off but when me and a mate took in Roma-Inrer in August. 

We was in the bit next to Curva Sud. Lively area, lots of alcohol being sold- in the stand itself.. I had 3 pints in about half hour.

Fairly sure I didn't use toilet facilities once. Selling beer in the stand from trays was a masterstroke too, saved the disruption you describe. :thumbsup:

Dont get me wrong I have been in stadia in Germany and it seemed like everyone was flat out. Difference being people were stood. In our sterile AG environment where you are sat then drinking doesnt reconcile with seated fans.Curva sud aint the Dolman !

I think the problem these days are mobile bloody phones, back in the day you could have a chat and a laugh without fear of anything getting back to anyone outside of your circle.

now you can’t do **** all without it being recorded and put on some media outlet.

Undeestand exactly what you say and that extends to cctv but their benefits are obvious With cameras on phones though Danny Mills said on Friday (sky) players dont connect after the game with fans now. He says their wealth isnt why they are disconnected more than a knob selling a photo of them having a night out..

Wouldn’t matter if we could still stand on proper terraces.

Football fans gave an excuse to the politicians to sanitise the game, leading to the SKY deals etc etc.  If those involved in football violence ‘back in the day’ don’t admit what they did ****** up football for the rest of us they deserve a ******* shoeing in their care homes.

Of course I’m not “getting it”, I don’t have the same Neanderthal mindset. I’m a grown up.

So you admit you don't understand and don't get it, of course you don't.

As you don't understand, Ill let my Neanderthal brain working, shouldn't be too tough for a man with a degree in Graphic Design and Communication, and a post grad in anatomy and physiology.

Ha yeah very true.

Distinti, let alone the Curva is a long way from the forcibly sanitised English game.

In the same way safe standing would be good, so too might a safe drinking zone. I recommend Dolman A and B...I know it's illegal but if it wasn't. ..

German stadia eh?  Inclined to take in a game there. Dortmund seems the obvious choice but any other recommendations?

I dont know when you could have a beer at a city match and my first game was in 1965 . There is more football violence nowadays pretty much everywhere in europe and there is also a better match atmosphere. My point being that blaming hooliganism for the reason why you have to sit on your hands for 90 minutes is a cop out.

I thought all seater stadia came about from Hillsborough which wasnt related to hooliganism

The fences at the Leppings Lane end that prevented people escaping the crush by going on to the pitch were there because of the pitch invasions in the previous 20 years that so often resulted in pitched battles. They weren't there due to the local abundance of steel. I wouldn't have thought.

Berlin would be undoubtedly a wonderful choice for a wonderful weekend, football included.

As @Loon plage indicates, Hertha would give you a 'lite' version of the Borussia Dortmund Yellow Wall (Curve) experience, but Union Berlin will open your eyes as to how football matches could be in this country if we could just eradicate the idea that all football supporters are just violent hooligans waiting for any excuse to create havoc wherever they go - just imagine people coming to your seat to offer you cold beer and hot sausages while you watch the game - no more standing in a queue to piss against a wall before queueing up yet again for a greasy, botulism ridden burger.

Hillsborough itself was not due to hoolaganism, at all.  

The environment that allowed it to happen, both the physical structure of the ground and the mentallity of those in charge of safety, was due to hooliganism.
