Re: F1 Thread

I think Daddy Stroll wants Vettel at RP so his son can go up against a former world champ that is in continuous decline. Stroll will look good if he stays anywhere near Seb even if Seb is way off the pace. Billionaire daddy buying success for his son. I've always thought that Vettel was overrated. ...

Re: The Whisky Thread

Which Ardbeg? I'm a big fan of the Corryvrecken, the additional pepper/spice takes it to another level IMO. All of them! :D To be honest, I haven't had many.

I've been tasting a lot of whisky over lockdown and have come to the conclusion that nothing is quite as good as Ardbeg. If I'm going to get ultra pretentious I'd say it's smokey and nutty with hint sea-side/seaweed/iodine and surprising sweet finish. I just love it (in small sips - a small glass a...

Re: Last Minit Reds v Rebels

I'm not buying into the Fraser McReight hype as yet - the Reds are definitely better served with him instead of ASY, who is a fairly average player, but his technique over the ball is going to see him penalised more often than not, and if I was to pick a backup 7 for Hooper in the Wobs I'd go with ...
