  1. So yesterday there were two things on the TV all day pretty much - Eusébio's tribute (in both the Stadium of Light and Lisbon's city hall) and funeral




    Giant waves hit Porto (the city) and destroy several cars




    God is in mourning too. :cry:



    Also it's being considered transferring Eusébio's body to the Lisbon's National Pantheon which contains the tombs of many illustrious figures of Portugal. Personally I think they should do it, Eusébio was a hero of the people and loved by all - he deserves it more than almost all of the other illustrious figures buried there.

    They also want to give his name to the Stadium of Light, but I'm not sure this will happen simply because the name of our stadium is part of Benfica's history too. It's hard to imagine it having a different name.


    Couldn't they name a stand after him? If that's not already happened

  2. Well there aren't any lower league teams to lose to in the CL, so they might have a better chance there haha


    Swindon are now 6th in League 1 but could go second if they beat Tranmere and even possibly go top (on goal difference) depending on the Crawley-Doncaster game


    Crazy league

  3. Not sure what's going on with Swindon at the moment - but nobody does. This takeover saga is dragging on. ps. as requested, I am here Goggie!


    Good to see you back here :P

    I can't work out what's happening to Brentford, they've been going through a really bad spell recently. At least we've got a win again now. The absolutely shocking performances by Premier league teams tonight cheered me up though.

    I never meant to leave actually, just kept forgetting to visit as when I left this thread was fairly inactive!


    Brentford are still doing quite well though, it's incredible how tight it is at the top of the league at the moment. I still stand by my suggestion that Swindon will win it though ;)

  4. Just watched Gladbach draw 3-3 to Lazio. Crazy match. Gladbach had 3 penalties (of which they scored two), and Arango scored a beautiful free kick to boot.


    Lazio were very effective going forward too.

  5. Also it irritates me that I have to avoid news outlets like the plague whenever there's a Royal event. A wedding isn't news!

    That applies to most celebrity weddings though.

    Most celebrity weddings aren't, however, the main remit of every news channel in the UK :P

  6. I am ideologically opposed to monarchies - I would like to think that anyone from anywhere could rise to a position of power, and a monarchy is the absolute opposite of that idea - but in practise the monarchy means very little other than more tourism. Also, even without the Royals, we'd still have the problem of the upper classes still being at a massive advantage to their middle and working class counterparts in terms of opportunities.


    It makes my blood boil that really talented people have to go to bad schools and settle down into dead-end jobs while Prince Harry, for example, gets the best education on offer, does fairly poorly in comparison to many state educated pupils (B in Art and D in Geography at A level), and yet still gets to live a life of luxury. It's a travesty, really.

  7. 1. Definitely not, but I'd like to see it encouraged. My school doesn't have wifi for the students, but has the facilities for laptops to be used by the students (with loads of excess plugs for chargers, spare desks for them to be placed at etc). It doesn't really make sense, but it's apparently something they're looking into which isn't too bad I suppose.


    2. To an extent. Explicit material should definitely be banned, as should games, but I'm not too sure on social networks. Having recently purchased a smartphone, it's really nice to check facebook/twitter at lunch or maybe during a free, but then again for the younger students that might not be a force for good. To be fair for me it's probably not brilliant either, but at least I 100% want to be there (as I am there out of choice) and the learning is a lot more independent now I'm in my final year so it doesn't impact too much on the rest of the class.


    Overall it's a nice thing to have but I think as long as there's accessible internet connection on desktops then that's fine. One thing I do have a problem with is my current German teacher who refuses to let me use a dictionary app on my phone to check words while in her class, making me use an actual dictionary instead. You know, the ones you can't type into? It's on the basis of it being "the way I had to do it during A levels!" (during the 1980s) apparently.

  8. There's absolutely no agenda in the title at all.


    No siree.


    Maybe if this guy was actually important then I'd have some sort of emotion but it just seems like people drag up this whole incident whenever Chris Brown's mentioned. We all know he's a bit of a muppet and we all know that beating women is wrong, so it's just a circlejerk of "lolwatanarse" over and over and over again. As it is he's just a washed up pop bloke, he matters about as much as celery and pottery.

  9. Shouldn't the Euro do a little better once Greece gets kicked out since all the other countries won't have to prop them up anymore?

    In the long term? Yes. In the short term, no.

    How so? I really don't understand global economics, so I'm hoping to learn something.

    If you kick a country out of a currency that spans many countries, then investors in the currency lose faith in the rest of the countries in the currency as they can't afford to prop up another country.


    That's the immediate hit, followed up by things slowly getting better.

  10. Michael Owen to Stoke




    rejects liverpool

    goes to stoke



    Should get through your group with your eyes closed at least Tubby, by far the best side there.


    Group D will be brilliant.


    Swindon got Burnley in the League Cup. Oh well. Was hoping for a good draw but it's winnable (especially at home) so I'll take it. Will be good to see Charlie Austin back at the County Ground, might get a ticket


    thats what we said last year

    It is, but you should have qualified. It was a shock that you didn't go through. For a team of the stature of United I'd expect them to be unbeaten in both last year's group and this year's one.


    Swindon lost their third game in a row, have to say I think it's afters from the Foderingham debacle that's caused this problem to flare up. Have no doubt it'll be fixed soon.

  11. Tumblr people make me embarrassed to tell people I like things, lest I associated with them. :/ But I'm being very offtopic, sorry, so yeah I really like Sherlock too.

    Tumblr's just a very embarrassing website
