He was on pundit duty during the world cup so chance you did see him there.

I hated Arsenal years ago. No other team has pushed me so far. lol

Man United are my team. I used to go to a couple of games a season but only one since Alex Ferguson left. I'll only return when they are winning again. Like a typical little glory hunter. :p Nah, subpar vision is another one of my ailments so it is hard to concentrate on the ball. Feel like it is a waste of time going over if I can't really see what is going on. But I will return soon day,

What if my name was Beaverhousing and my gender was unknowm as a poster? How would you have seen me then or how would you have interpreted my posts?

Richie - go. Give me your opinion. Would you have then seen me as your kid brother or big brother? What about humma humma? Would I have had you at that then?

I should be sleeping, really but I am overtired. Is that a word?

Beaverhousing would be given a chance like everybody else. lol Not sure what would have happened If you were not an Andy Murray fan. Since we did connect in that place.

But I've no idea as usual. :p

I think it will be a game changer. One of these days, I will delete my account and come back as MurrayFan123 and will keep my gender blank. This way, I will have least amount of arguments and personal attacks from certain posters. But will also allow me to support Andy in full force. I say it's a win win!

Or I may want to call myself MuzZereV. Now how creative is that?

Guess you have to get used to Solskjær now.
 
Ok, so I started to watch all movies from MCU in order (right now on Age of Ultron) and I fell in love with Loki. So I wanted to watch some videos of him on youtube(so dumb) and there I saw a headline that fckin' Thanos killed Loki?! Is that true?:cry::cry:

Haha it is true.:cry:
But he can return for sure. He is the guy.
I have always loved him much more than Thor.
Might just be my favourite MCU character after the CAP.
 
Nah. Khan is well seasoned against wider competition and is a tremendous talisman. Also, as a player he's more valuable than all of those players other than the DON.
Guess I can agree with the valuable argument. It makes sense. Hey why don't you post your all time XI for test cricket. Okay make it a 15 member squad. I know 11 is too less lol.

Sheesh. I've done this before in the past and it's wayyyy too hard.

It would have Bradman, Khan, Warne (because he can also score runs), Tendulkar, Sobers, Hadlee, Botham, Kallis ... and that's all I'm willing to pick for now. Might take Gilchrist.

The focus is on great batsman and great all-rounders.

Children, go to bed please. It's way past your bedtime. Your daddy wouldn't like it at all.

Come now, mummy would tuck you in. Remember to brush your teeth first or else no bedtime stories.
 
Come on!!!! It's either the DON or Ricky or Lara or Dhoni(if it's an ODI XI).
Alan border was our best captain, of the last 40 years, followed by Steve Waugh, Mark Taylor and ponting close behind... Strong era we had there..

My best 11 had ambrose and akram and Donald, leading the attack, warnie the spinner.
Sangakkara has to be the keeper I think, 12000 runs at an average of 57..Middle order of Lara Sachin and kallis. Ponting at 3 Hayden and dravid as the openers...

Hayden
Dravid
Ponting
Lara
Tendulkar
Kallis
Sangakkara
Akram
Warne
Ambrose
Donald

My team will always have 2 players fixed, Donald Bradman(best batsman) and Jacques Kallis(best all rounder).
As the Don comes in at 3 Ricky automatically goes out.
Most difficult to choose are the fast bowlers and the openers.
For the openers based on average I wanted to pick Jack Hobbs and Leonard Hutton of England. Both averaging 56+ as openers. What the hell!!!
Gavaskar and Hayden both average 50.
But I haven't seen Mr. Hobbs and Mr. Hutton bat so I will just stick to Gavaskar and maybe Hayden. Another choice could have been Sehwag. But he fails miserably in English and South African conditions.
While Gavaskar is super strong almost everywhere. I want Hayden to be there just coz of the explosiveness. He too has a bad record in English conditions. After giving it a second thought it seems to me that SIR Don can provide me with the needed explosiveness at no. 3. Don't need an opener for that. Afterall Don's the only one to score 300+ in a freaking day. So instead of Hayden I will choose Dravid as my number 2 coz he has a spotless record in England and almost everywhere except SA.
1st will be Gavaskar.
2nd is Dravid.
3rd is Don.
4th is Tendulkar.
5th goes to Lara.
6th to Kallis.
7th to Sanga.
8th Hadlee.
9th Warne.
10th Marshall.
11th Akram.
There are so many great fast bowlers. So few places. Honourable Mentions: McGrath, Steyn, Anderson, Donald, Lillee and the other West Indies greats.
12th Ambrose(in case you want to intimidate the batsmen).
13th Ponting(in case one of the batsmen gets injured).
14th Murlidharan(in case Subcontinent happens).
15th Ian Botham(in case Kallis gets injured). Wanted to have Gilchrist here in case Sanga gets injured but Dravid can pitch in if Sanga gets injured.
So we have the best leg spinner and the best off spinner with us. Fast bowlers who can ball all kinds of swing bowling be it outswing, inswing or reverse swing. Ambrose and Malcolm with the bouncer and the slower one. Then there's the two best all rounders ever. And a batting line up headed by the Don. What else does one want?

Mine was more a team from my lifetime. Didn't put the Don or Hobbs and Hutton for that reason.
Had Marshall in too but swapped him for Donald at the last moment, he lost a chunk of his career when south africa were banned.
Cant really go wrong with any of a few bowlers, would have rated younis up there too...

Have cancelled all my plans for the holidays. Sick as a puppy at the moment. I can tell it will take me some time to recover completely. Thankfully our office remains closed until Jan. 2nd so will be able to rest a great deal or so I wish.

I always know when I am going to fall sick and to this date, I don't know if it's a good or bad thing.

Hope you get better soon. Is it your head, chest of stomach?
 
Thanks. I hope so too. It's been 3 days now.

The stomach is fine so is the chest. A slight cough though but mainly fever and cold. I don't know what fun is. Sounds dramatic but it just feels so blah.
Take your vitamin C and a shot or two of vodka, will make you forget you have a fever :) If your going to be down and out, may as well have a buzz

I like using the Vic's vapor rub when its my head.

Must be rough to have a cold in the cold. Will be 78 here tomorrow, warmup the bones again

And you are certain it will last for a longer time?

I just had the cold and that annoying borderline fever when I feel a bit down but not sure whether I should really react to it or not, and it lasted for just couple of days.

It was strange. Who would have thought that previously being 20 minutes outside without a jacket when it's below 0 Celsius degrees could cause such a mess. :whistle:

yep - things have gone bad to worse. fever has left however deep cold has firmly settled in. Borderline pneumonia, folks.

Can't tell the difference between night and day and that's mostly because shutter, curtains in my bedroom are all closed. and the sun is always hiding behind the cloud. what's the point anyway. Occasionally I come out like a zombie and try to eat some food that tastes like feet btw and the sight of alcohol makes me want to through up violently. so I am mostly on this ginger honey tea crap or whatever.

Was just wondering about you, sorry to hear your feeling worse. Do you have any of the green stuff?

Hope you get well soon. Not much i can do, but if you need anything let me know
