Have it on good authority (one of the attendees) that DC flies into Heathrow from SF tomorrow and has called his senior management team down to London for weekend  meetings meaning none of said team will beat Sunday’s game ???

Why question your own post though?

Questioning the timing and location.

If I’d had any inkling of either I would perhaps have used an exclamation mark!!!

Must be pretty easy to arrange a management meeting when you only need a table for one. In fact why not just have the meeting on the plane. Or now.

London is only 2 hours by train, I'm sure they'll make the game on Sunday...

Has he not heard of Skype or FaceTime? I've been reminded of them all day.

Very true. Sat on one at the moment. Anyone using a train that's across the Anglia region. Forget it today. Managed to hop onto an East Midlands train back home. No sign of D C though.lol

Depending on how many meetings, what time they start/finish and the little matter that they’ve been told in advance that their likely to miss the match!

Other than that you’re grasp of the London/Sheffield train journey time is pretty accurate!

Learned today that it’s not about duff UK engineering - we deliberately only stress/stretch the steel to around 27 degrees Celsius worth of expansion in UK, as we’re so rarely above that it’s not worth extra cost to ‘prepare’ it for greater expansion during forging (plus ours also has to cope with freezing temps & contraction in winter too). Other hotter countries set theirs up to expand to 35 degree temps or more, ‘cos it’s worth the significant extra outlay during manufacturing if they hit those temps fairly often. Cost would be phenomenal to upgrade our whole network.

 

Makes you wonder how much of our country’s infrastructure just isn’t ready to cope with a baked planet - we could actually end up in a worse position than many currently poorer nations in that regard.

If he's been in San Fran but is now in Boston, why would he fly into Heathrow from San Fran?
