Well, that time of year is fast approaching again. Since last season ended we've been counting down the days. The Euros helped fill the gap, then when the new fixtures are out you know there's not long to go. For some it's a time of great optimism, while others know another year of disappointment is all that's to come......Yes, that's right, it's Murf's birthday. Enjoy the following images with my compliments :)

Thanks. It took me 19 months to get over the squash thing before I could reply.

It was nice to not see my own stupid name as the last post there. I didn't know you'd taken the squad thing so hard, I'm sure water in first is fine*

 

Two of the pictures aren't even showing any more, and going by the ones that are, they were the best two :(

put the clocks forward last night, it's never bothered me before, just like jet lag never affected me, yet last night I had the worst sleep in memory, when they vote to abolish daylight savings time they'll get mine.

I hate the clocks going forward day. The clocks go back day on the other hand I've always quite liked.

 

I think we should start and put the clocks back both times and can't see any possible problem with this. It's a winner :thumbsup_still:

 

I've got the last post on all the sections. Winning B)

Saurus deleted all his threads then vanished from the forum. I assume he was detained under the mental health act and tried to remove any evidence before they took him away. Let us hope he gets the help he needs.

 

Congratulations on your upcoming victory. Let's hope announcing that early doesn't in any way curse your chances ^_^

Can I please remind forum members of rule 2 of this thread, which reads as follows:

 

 

"2. Posting is only permissible between 00.30 and 06.30"

 

 

The posts by Art on 5th February, 20th March and 20th April and Murf's post of 16th April are in breach of this rule.

 

I won't ask for formal action to be taken on this occasion but can I please remind all forum members of the importance of following the rules, the purpose of which is surely to maintain the quality and authenticity of this thread. If postings are permitted during non-insomniac hours, does the thread then cease to be the insomniac thread?

Formal action? You've got a nerve :angry:  This is like a part time ball boy writing to Chelsea football club to complain that he saw Roman Abramovic's car in the car park after the allocated opening hours. If anything it'll be me taking action against you for the flagrant disregard of Rule One: Daz, Art Vandelay and Jeynesey are the founder members and should be respected.

 

Also we've long turned a blind eye to early morning posts as long as the poster has been up all night and not simply woken up early after a good sleep.

 

In other news, I see it's one of your favourite days of the year coming up HB. So who's your tip for Eurovision this weekend?

Well, I don't believe I'm in breach of rule one. I haven't disrespected you, quite the opposite, it's because I respect you so much that I felt obliged to point out that standards have been slipping.

 

As for Eurovision, yes, it's a bit of a guilty of pleasure of mine, although, similar to a particular thread, standards have dropped recently and these days I watch it more out of a sense of duty and nostalgia. A bit like having relatives around who you have bugger all in common with?

 

I wouldn't take any tips from me as I haven't correctly predicted the winner in 30 odd years of watching it, but according to an analysis of streams watched apparently Germany may be the people's favourite? Israel and Cyprus also tipped to do well.

 

You'll note the timing of this post - some of us still have standards and respect the heritage, rules and authenticity of this treasured thread.

It doesn't matter what you believe, I've made my decision. You need to take a look at Rule 7 B)

 

Yeah, it must be hard to predict anything as there seems to be no correlation at all between the style or quality of a song and the number of votes it gets. There are some good ones at the bottom and good ones at the top and crap ones everywhere. By good ones I mean in the context of the contest, taken on their own merits they're crap ones too as they're all degrees of crap.

 

I remember Germany had one of the better ones a couple of years ago, I think it finished last. The fact I have written this gives the impression I have more interest in Eurovision than I actually do, although I'll probably stick it on in the background while I do something else.

 

I see the Fantasy Premier League thread has disappeared now Im running away with it.

I blame Art of course.

 

'Running away with it' is a very optimistic description of a 7 point lead with a full set of games to go :king_right:

Never in doubt. 😅 I even made it interesting by letting you get closer on the last day.

I would have had to leave the forum for at least a week if Id have screwed that up. 😉

I cant remember the last time I was up after midnight. Anything after 10pm is late for me these days. I dont drink and Im training for an Ironman. Life has changed a lot since this thread started.

Four points! I was a Yoshida sending off away from nicking it in a spectacular final week comeback :( Congratulations, I look forward to your challenge in the World Cup. I've already started my research.......
