Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (SAT 26th May)

Fantastic experience for me, going up various mountains and 1 trip by train through the Gotthard tunnel to Como in northern Italy. I hope y...

Re: Champions League Final : Liverpool v Real Madrid

In any international event I'm always for the English team first (even scum), followed by any team from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales or Scotland, so I'll be rooting for the scousers.

I've ignored this next item so far because it's not my place to be an English monitor, but maybe when you start using 'who' and 'whom' correctly I suppose you could criticise others? http://w...
