• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Toughest sports of all

Many years ago my mate Alan and me for some reason decided to do a sponsored dawn till dusk tennis match to raise funds for the guide dogs for the blind.
We had been playing for about four hours before the first spectators turned up - our sole sustenance was a crate of milk and a crate of Guinness.
We did actually carry on until it got dark, but the standard of tennis gradually deteriated.
Ended up as pissed as parrots and as stiff as a board for the next couple of days.

Never played the game since!

was a half decent tennis player when I was a kid like best in my school nothing more than that, we went on holiday to Turkey when I was about 38 and hadn't played for more than 20 years, me and the wife playing against step daughter and her husband they were obviously much younger and the husband dismissed me like I had no chance , so I offered him a bet because at this stage I would have thought I would beat them both on my own knowing I had above average skills and he had clearly underestimated me. So about 2 shots into the very first point my step daughter miss hits one that ends up like a drop shot, I run forward at my maximum speed just about reach it and hit a winner, momentum carried me unexpectedly forward and I went straight into the net (obviously harder to stop with the extra bulk since I was a kid)

I got caught up in the net and completely dislocated and fractured my left shoulder, the whole arm was hanging on by what seemed just skin and a few nerves, the pain from the damaged nerves was unbelievable. Everyone laughing at me and a 1 hour trip to a Turkish hospital with the weight of my arm pulling at my nerves.
I couldn't move my arm for weeks even after they finally put it back together,They didn't know if the nerve damage would be permanent it was that bad .
What a clown
Also Never played the game since!
I stick to watching sports nowadays
