  1. Alonso is a highlight reel player. Sadly he has reserved a few of those highlights and telling contributions for against us. Important to keep hold of Chilwell unless he simply doesn't want to be here; in which case sod a player in exchange... take the cash and keep our powder dry. You get your pants pulled down in this window. £750 milllion please.
  2. Hello All. I run my own business; which is an insurance company. An MGA to be precise (Managing General Agent). Essentially an Underwriting Agency to those in the industry, using the old fashioned (and more accurate) parlance. What do you do? Arrange niche terrorism covers for enterprising brokers on behalf of insurers under delegated authority arrangements. Whilst I have a number of areas of expertise and interest, the current project and likely long time specialism and focus will be terrorism insurance solutions in the UK and worldwide. What do you love about it? I like creating creative solutions and solving problems clients have. We pride ourselves on flexibility, service and collaboration so coming up with a bespoke solution for a client and enabling a broker to win/retain the business is satisfying. The people in insurance actually tend to be pretty good as well. I have some excellent friends whom I've met through the industry and I've never even done business with most of them. Its an extremely event focus and contact focussed and people centric industry. Deals can still be done at the cricket, on the golf course and in the pub (although its becoming increasingly more difficult to be fair) What are your stresses? That you can always achieve more and that its hard not to think about missed opportunities. I tend to think of the phrase 'grant me the serenity to accept those things which I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can change and the wisdom to know the difference'. The problem is knowing you can't change something and having the wisdom is one thing, but the serenity to accept the things you don't like and cannot change is very difficult. You can't turn back the clock! (Although with insurance, you very often get another bite of the cherry the next year) What size is your business? Small; maybe £500,000 gross written premium. How longs it been going? 11 months. Could you ever go back to employment? Yes; but probably more likely actually on a consultancy style arrangement so I suppose I'd still be self-employed. If the right, exciting role came along, I couldn't rule it out, but only of course once I'd exited this vehicle in the desired way and time.
  3. Does it work straight away on modern PCs. If so I might have a crack. Got a long train journey tomorrow that this would be perfect for
  4. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why don't you offer them £5 for Stamford Bridge as well?
  5. Cheers all. I won't have an U18 with me and would need to buy on gate since not sure I can make it; but thanks for the responses. I do appreciate it.
  6. Hi All. I've not really been paying attention. If I was to come up to Leicester tomorrow and turn up at the ground, would I have any chance of getting a ticket?
  7. Hope all is well with you and yours. Seasons Greetings from all at TPH Towers.* *Not an actual place.
  8. ..... or Leuven on a Jet Plane... This could have legs.
  9. No chance. I'm also the very last house (well, bar one) at the end of a road, so sometimes I get all the remaining ones dumped through my letter box. Its a staggering waste of paper/card.
  10. You know he had Bocelli? You should get Bon Jovi in. Leuven on a prayer. Right, that's it. I don't come to this thread often so this coat-grab and hasty retreat is not problematic for me.
  11. Its been mentioned already, but 'JO SWINSON'S LIBERAL DEMOCRATS' are sending me a flyer every single day. I don't know what their policy is on environmental issues (let's be honest, the best position of the third party when the two main ones are a mess is to keep your mouth shut and not look stupid... how's that going Jo?)... anyway I don't know their policy on it, but unless it involves cutting down endless trees to shove crap leaflets through our doors every single day then they are lying.
  12. Sturgeon has actually impressed me in some of the bits and pieces I've seen, but like I say, I've become completely disenchanted. Perhaps the most damning thing you can say about the system, the politicians themselves, the parties, whatever .... is that they've driven a lot of people beyond disillusionment in to simply not caring.
  13. I'm listening to the Just Joans. Nothing really scratches the twee lo-fi Scottish indie itch quite like it.
  14. Everyone seems quite happy so I'm going to again ask why we have so many forwards at the club and not out on loan, and hence Connor Tee has not had a look in!
  15. Surely there is no way? Who remembers that 6-1 vs Pompey on Sky? That was under Sousa wasn't it?
  16. I'd like to hope we keep him around. I think retaining both Fuchs and Justin in the squad is a sensible move. He seems to be getting a few minutes at the moment, and increasingly looking good having learnt the system (as per Nacho). Another BR success story so far. Early days yet, but I think he learns more with us than going out and playing games in a different system.
  17. Marxist/Racist vs Serial Liar vs Out of Depth Idiot. Hmmmmmm. Could genuinely end up voting for some no-hopers like the Greens here.
