  1. Devastating that replay. Absolutely heart breaking. I went to the replay on my own as my mates were skint. I couldn't afford it but my mum bought me a train ticket, girlfriend at the time match ticket. Got on the train and it was one big party and knew loads of people from just going to games anyway. Coming home was horrible. I knew they'd score when they got the corner. I got up to go to the toilet as couldn't watch it. Heard the roar and dropped to my knees. I think I may have even cried or at least shed a tear. The FA Cup was everyone's dream then and to be that close. We may have lost on pens but still would have preferred that. Hard to believe that Woods did what he did. A wonderful keeper who just messed up in big games. Will never ever get over that. The semi was an unbelievable experience. Playing football in Wembley car park at about 5am on the day of the game - we left Sheffield at something like 1am just to get down. Even then the convoy was crazy down the M1. Going back home it was an astonishing sight. I hate that lot but both clubs did the city proud that day. Hard to believe it's 25yrs ago but will never ever forget that day. One of my best mates at the time was a snort. He literally got to his seat as Waddle scored. As has been said, we'd have won at least one trophy had it not been Arsenal. To play them in both finals was gutting.
  2. I got 11/1 on Friday night. As soon as he was gone, I expected an improvement so had £25 on. We were actually 13/1 on Betfair (don't use) and 13/1 on Paddy Power Saturday morning. Annoying. We were 250/1 for top 6 on Friday night. Very much doubt that would happen but not insurmountable What I don't get is you can still get 9's as said - but Brentford are 2/1. How?
  3. Picked a decent time to pop back haven't I!
  4. Good afternoon Simon. Glad to see things are as they were..... My eyes
  5. Try 24hrs before (referencing the Fergie thing) https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-wednesday/fergie-snubs-owls-1-309144 Crap first post in years and quote wrong one
  6. Yep, another nod to SF My fave place in the states. However, whatever you do, try not to go to the Folsom Street Fair if it's on. Even if you just think you'll pop in for a laugh. Or if you do go, leave before it 'changes' My eyes. My EYES.
  7. I love LA. Been 3 times, each time for a week. Stayed in Santa Monica, Mar Vista and then Hollywood. Hollywood was genuinely fantastic to stay. I would go again without a doubt. Also recommend doing the drive yourself from Vegas. Easy. Although driving in LA is horrific. Don't waste money on a flight though
  8. Un.kin.believable Like they'd heard about Roeder and Pearson. Aye.
  9. No probs tom - and nice one for getting sorted! Enjoy!
  10. hahaha whoops Thing is, I've twice gone to LA after SF. First time I genuinely thought I'd hate it because we'd had such a brilliant time in SF. Expected plastic awfulness but it wasn't. Wouldn't do it without a car though - without one I can see why it may disappoint although LA is the only place I despise driving in America. Mental feckin 8 lane roads.
  11. LA is brilliant. Surprised you didn't like it modboy. I've been 3 times - Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey then Hollywood. We actually stayed 2 blocks off Hollywood Boluevard and it was fantastic. Saturday night people watching on the Boulevard is something else. I thought I'd go once and that'd be it but no, can't wait to go back. There's so much to do in LA if you do it right. A drive in the Hollywood Hills is an experience, a Dearly Departed tour is a great trip, a night on the boulevard is just an experience. The top touristy end isn't that good but down at the bottom near Pantages theatre I highly recommend. Venice Beach is an eye opener too. Also went to the Viper Room as the gert was a big fan of River Phoenix so she wanted to go. Saw a hip hop gig there and it was superb. One of the smallest but coolest places I've ever been in. Not at all as up its own arris as I expected. Agree re: going over west coast first and also agree SF is a brilliant city. Been there 3 times too and adore the place. Although I advise not to go to the Folsom Street fair. Well, it's an experience but we left before it got too much..... (nah was quite good fun really early in the day, dread to think what the night would be like). I would still always recommend renting an apartment to see the areas properly. We've had some great places via vrbo. The train from NY to Washington is good (we did it the other way and it was a nice journey). So - the thing is feasible if you do it right. 8/9 days in San Fran may be a bit much although I've been for a week twice and would happily go back for a week no problem. Have a look at splitting SF perhaps - go over the bridge, look at Sausalito or Muir Woods. But definitely do it west coast then east.
  12. I've used vrbo for years. Great site I'm same as long as location is decent. We've found some places a little off the beaten track before but they have great things around them (bars etc)
  13. Its one of the most expensive I've looked at for some odd reason. We've booked this http://www.vrbo.com/392306?utm_source=SYS&utm_medium=email&utm_term=20150114&utm_content=hascpropid_text_o_lprop&utm_campaign=VRBO_replyavailable $668 for 4 nights. Still not cheap but decent and close enough.
  14. I'm going to Krakow tomorrow. Hope that helps
