    Happy to take an even hundred with anyone on Ronaldo scoring less than 28 goals in the Pl + CL combined this season. Which must at least a dozen under his average for the last 12 seasons.

    Roll up!

      We were pretty close, living as neighbours about 14 years. Was at their wedding, house parties etc. Not exactly mates but close. He was very good to me during tough times.

      We bought them a gift a few weeks ago for moving. Knocked over and they were out.
      Told them we had a gift and card for them.

      Struggled though to get an opportunity for both of us to call over. Tried again the night before last and again no answer, they went to bed early.

      I met them separate a few times on the street and they mentioned the hassles and delays they were having. They were ready to move out and it fell through due to some legal crap. That was the other day. She reckoned then it would be another couple of weeks.

      Wife saw himself loading a van yesterday and went out to him with the gift and he waved her away and said 'ah don't worry, I'll be back later', they'd been throwing stuff into storage the last couple of weeks.

      Came home from work tonight. The sold sign is gone. So are they. New car in the driveway, new guy in the gaff.

      No 'see ya later alligator' not even a text.

      Am I mad to think that's odd?

      Sounds like they moved to get away from you

      No that is odd obv

        I was expecting that to head towards you wanting the gift back when they didn't move out. Not sure what that says about where my minds at

          He's probably super stressed and preoccupied. Send him a text in a few weeks when everything has calmed down. Friends are worth keeping.

            They probably remembered the gift you gave them for their wedding and committed to dodge receiving any leaving gift. They never forgot. Give the same gift to the new neighbours as a house warming present and let it all start again. Seems knowing the Lazares has repercussions.

                No chance. He's a goal machine.

                  A friend of mine has been coaching underage girls' football (has a daughter) for a good 3/4 years now.

                  We were in house 2 years ago, full of drink and he takes out his 'work phone', which was actually a phone he had had to get solely for coaching the team so that the parents could get in touch but couldn't ruin his life 24/7.

                  He had messages from parents with things like "You can't play Jesse again next week, she's got no left foot, send her home if she turns up for training" and tactics suggestions (7 a side football). He'd have 2/3 messages from each of the parents in between his standard "Training is at 6 this week, game on Sunday is at 11:00 at home vs .....".

                  He told us he pretty much never replied to anyone, and had to just grim and bear it all, week after week after week.

                  Got worse for him last year when his daughter dropped out, and left him in the role as none of the other parents would do it! He's too nice, should have legged it too.

                  Best of luck Dice.

                      I've been coaching kids (also girls) sport for years and have never seen anything remotely like that.

                          Yep, that's my take on it. My wife is a bit annoyed about it though.

                          I sent him a text a little while ago wishing them well, he apologised for the way they went.

                          I hold silver in tit for tat, and I love you for that

                            First impressions are most parents at this stage are fairly relaxed about it but there was one half nutter on the sidelines. You know the type, roaring at an U6s five a side where half them are more interested in swinging off the posts and chasing each other. Turned out he was the uncle of the one kid done up to the nines like Ronaldo with all the gear and gel styled hair.

                            Anyway said kid was decent compared to most there but at the end of the 10 min game as the teams were rotating to play a different team the kid grabbed one of the oppositon and pushes him to the ground telling him to Fuck Off (over a tackle i think - they cant even tackle lol). Not hard to see where it comes from. If he's in my squad i might start him on the bench for the lols.

                            God help me when they all start watching football properly and start diving around like ballerinas.

                              Probably a more middle-class constituency alright.

                              Although my son has been playing soccer for years and there's been no nonsense there either.

                                Don't you move every 5 years like a spy or a terrorist? Probably reduces that suburban community hassle.

                                  Is that in 'The Modern Terrorists Handbook'?

                                  Coincedentally just finished a great book of the genesis of Al Qaeda. It ends in September 2001.

                                        I'd imagine most things are.

                                        Anyway, your buddy is a chump for putting up with it imo. He should tell them to get fucked.

                                          I don't know if there's a rule in kids football now that everyone has to get a game.
                                          I was watching a Clonee game earlier in the week and they had a left back who was genuinely clueless, two left feet and no athletic ability as she was about 20kg bigger than the rest of the girls. And showed absolutely no enthusiasm which could at least make up for it, never went above walking pace. But she was given the full second half whilst better players were on the sidelines. Manager seemed to have no interest in her play, he was cajoling everyone else with generic 'make space, up the line, mark a player, take a touch' comments, but completely ignored her. About 4 goals that I saw were down her side.
                                          Just seemed a weird situation.

                                            Son's team (U-14) gives everyone a run too, regardless of ability. They're not much good though, somewhere in the mid-rank of the NDSL. Would imagine it's very different in the top leagues.

                                            What else can you do as a coach really? Can't let the poor kid sit on the sidelines for the whole game.

                                              I find it strange that United fans here are not pleased about Ronaldo joining. Now I haven't seen a league game he's played since El Classico ones, but how can you not be happy having him there? I was checking the odds for Man Utd to win the league last night based on the info. Really, really wish that Messi had come to the EPL. That would have been such a joy to watch every week.

                                              But I will really enjoy watching Ronaldo. Him, Bruno, Sancho, Pogba is very impressive, and Varane is a great signing too. If their manager wasn't like a kid fulfilling a wish via the make a wish foundation they would have a title chance.

His presence will be akin to Cantona just wish it was 5 years ago. Hes a goal machine though. Can they get one more year at 80% even. Even 3 against Liverpool would be enough

                                                                  Out to Dooks beach after that and almost had it to ourselves.

I still don't know what the answer is other than size might be one of them. But look let's leave it, I didn't expect it to be a multi- day one. Time difference is a factor I suppose.
                                                                                                          In your first post, you didn't actually ask that. Maybe you meant to, but instead you came out with a strawman rhetorical about killing the village idiot. It seem more condescending than enquiring.

                                                                                                          As I said, there's many factors; intelligence, size, conservation status, age and lifespan, health and/or safety implications, purpose of killing, ecological impact, etc.
                                                                                                          I've never sat down and assigned an order and weight to those to form a definitive line. I just decide as I meet a situation. I'd guess most do that subconsciously, even those that convince themselves they've a zero tolerance view.

                                                                                                          Hard not to drag topics out with the timezone issue. Apologies.

Doesn't make much difference though, maybe 1/2 per season. I actually see there's a few seasons where he scored at considerably more than 1 CL goal per game.

Once you stop enjoying anything its time to reevaluate, so back to basics the other evening with the ooni simple one day dough and was a perfect starting off point again, ill build from there one change at a time.

Wasn't too stressful once we got a production line going though the real secret to success was that one of the girls works in Dominos and was able to churn out perfectly round bases in less than a minute Probably would have been a disaster without her because the stretching and pulling the way I do it would have been a bottleneck. As it worked out I was able to keep steady stream of them coming out for about an hour and a half. Was great craic but I wouldn't like to be doing it for a living.

Not enough to clean Tar's dusty feet, but it's quite the fucking effort. There's just no handy way of putting in steps.

Having a few involved certainly takes a lot of stress out of it, here im the one making the dough, shaping the dough, topping the dough and cooking the dough...i may have control issues...
