  1. How have you coped with a year without restaurants? I love going to restaurants and I get excited about trying new things, but on a day to day basis I really prefer to make stuff at home and make things myself. What I think I've realised that I'm missing is inspiration and to an extent, the artistry of an expertly made dish or cocktail. Some of that can be replicated, I can pull out recipes from a book and I can try something I haven't had before but some of it really can't be. I remember sitting up at the bar in below and being handed a cocktail that was vividly green, speaking to the b
  2. I'm not really celebrating tbh, I think we are in a bad way and I'm not particularly interested in watching a team score off set pieces while spending most of the game out of possession. It's a far cry from the last time we played Wolves, when I was rammed into the Albion Pub in London watching us scoring five.
  3. I was obviously wrong! Not sure how we managed to gain, rather than concede two penalties but those are going to be valuable points.
  4. I was really willing to give Allardyce the benefit of the doubt, I thought he was a bit unfairly maligned at West Ham and I didn't think there was a chance of him being worse than Pulis but so far it seems like all the complaints about shit football are true and it's not even getting the results. The board really have to take the responsibility for what is almost certainly going to be a relegation season. One of the biggest issues was their hesitance to spend money which ended up with huddersfield benching our new £15m striker for 3 months while we sorted out negotiations and our defensive
  5. To beat anyone we'd need to overcome the own goal we score, and somehow do so with 10 men, if recent performances are anything to go by.
  6. Bilic must be laughing. West Brom have absolutely fell apart after sacking him and have been averaging one shot a game while letting in loads. Stupid decision.
  7. This may seem like an odd thread idea but I thought we could use a place to ask what supermarkets carry certain items, especially at a time when touring the supermarkets is a bad idea. I'm trying to find radicchio - not for me to eat but for a very fussy lizard. There's a couple of salad mixes that have it in, aldi have one and morrisons do one that's good but he'll pick out the radicchio and leave the rest. Where could I look to find a whole head of it?
  8. There's a new Flora Butter which is great. Flora Margarine is also vegan. https://www.flora.com/en-us/floraplant/our-products Be aware that the salted is actually in the blue pack.
  9. The Mind is the most fun I've had 2 player and it's under a tenner https://www.board-game.co.uk/product/the-mind/
  10. I think they pre-date the craft beer scene and that's probably why they come across that way but their beers, even the super market ones, are solid. On the N/A Beers, Small Beer Co & Big Drop seem good, Brooklyn's Special Effect is nice, Erdinger is good and I've always enjoyed Bavaria. It doesn't seem easy to get them here but there are a bunch of really good low alcohol mikkeller beers Drinkin in the sun is 0.3% and it's a lovely session style pale ale https://drydrinker.com/product/mikkeller-drinkin-sun/ They have a 0.3% version of their oatmeal coffee stout too which I'd lo
  11.

  12. The Aldi ones are called Oaties too - and it looks like they are basically the same. On the subject of M&S - these peach & passionfruit jaffa cakes are really great. https://www.ocado.com/products/m-s-peach-passion-fruit-jaffa-cakes-514975011
  13. Currently I'm getting through far too many packs of Aldi's fake chocolate hob nobs and recently I polished off a pack of their fake Leibniz which has returned a joy to my life which I had denied myself since the owner of Bahlsen outed themselves as a nazi.
  14. I had some "crowlers" delivered from the local brewdog. Sour Thymes and Frog gone Rouge were both great.
