    Petrol and diesel prices

    My new scooter is averaging 119 per gallon at the minute, so using that as my runaround mode of transport. Mokka is thirsty round town, but decent on a run. I do miss my diesel economy though.

    I won't be watching. Going for a stroll round the park.

    Petrol and diesel prices

    I use the nearby Tesco petrol station for my petrol. The price has jumped in the past 2-3 weeks from 116.9 to 126.9 (yesterday) per litre so the diesel will be a few pence dearer. Aye, you're correct, they just raise and decrease it when they want. I get the impression that it's nothing to do with oil production and market prices....it's simply done on a whim!

    Petrol and diesel prices

    When are they going to start coming down? Thought it was bad all them years ago when it hit £1.00, I’ve just topped up again and it’s £1.26 now for a litre of diesel by me. We all need our cars so they can charge what they want but feck me its getting expensive....

    Play off finals England 2018

    Hoping Fulham do it, just so i can laugh to myself at those deluded inbreds from Witton.
  8. Weekend is almost upon us and the finals will take place Saturday, Sunday & Monday. I'll probably take more interest in the Sunday & Monday games because these kick off at my preferred time...3pm. I'll need to make some enquiries into the teams before I decide on how I bet. Looking forward to them though!

    Gary Rowett Sacking! Opinion's please.

    I'd agree with this Seems to move around the Midlands quite a bit

    ☀️⛅ ☔ Weather ❄️🌧️🌩️

    cloudy at the moment but to clear up early afternoon....going to cuprinol another shed today.
  13. Basically, all Rowett is doing is running as soon as a little heat is applied. Except in the Birmingham case where he got rumbled and the club acted swiftly. In my eyes all he is doing is becoming a journey man manager like Pulis, Lambert, Bruce, Alardyce, McClaren. He will never be out of work, but likewise won't win anything either. His great young manager tag is tainted.
  14. Money, although important, isn't everything & I'm talking solely in a footballing sense. There have been numerous players up here who have shone, transferred down south primarily for the huge rise in wages but failed to make it.....little game time, so after a period they have to return for hopefully a better chance of actually playing week in week out but obviously they have to take a large drop in wages. Prime example....Jason Cummings.....played great for Hibs.....went to Forest & obviously got a huge hike in wages but fell out of favour so came to Rangers on a loan (I don't know if Gers pay or Forest or both pay part of his salary during this time) but if he is signed on a permanent deal it will be for wages a lot less than Forest were paying him. Managers are different in the sense that they are involved every week but I agree with the previous post by Locke regards this.
  15. Is he doing himself any favours in the long run though? Successful managers usually prove themselves at a club building the team and winning things. Not by moving sideways for a few quid more. Potential employers will be noting all of this. Also, he would expect loyalty from his players and his employer. It is a two way thing.

    Plans for the weekend?

    Yeah I know, I just hope she's alright. We meet in a park, poppy and Darcy. If they get on we take her home. If they don't get on we don't. If we get.home and find they don't get on then worst case I'd have to return her to the charity. I know.i said I couldn't get rid of her, keeping her would not be fair on poppy. But hopefully that never happens.

    Just like any normal person then, if I was going to get a pay rise I'd move ship too.
  20. Is it me or is Rowett coming across as someone who jumps ship very easily? Couldn't get Derby promoted so goes to Stoke? Why? Pay rise by any chance? Left Burton too. I am no longer a fan of him. Personally I think he encouraged QPR to tap him up leading to his dismissal at Brum.

    Plans for the weekend?

    On Saturday I will be taking my Grandson to the park in the afternoon at about 5pm and returning at 7pm for the Champions League final. On Sunday I am visiting my Mom's grave with some flowers as it will be 11 years since she departed.

    ☀️⛅ ☔ Weather ❄️🌧️🌩️

    Nice up here also....bit breezy from the east which chills it down a tad but can't complain. My gardening shall be done Thursday. Today has been garden centre visiting for more bags of compost for the wife's hanging baskets and raised beds, some flowers and veg which she will plant later. She has been buying bits and bobs (plants etc) but was out yesterday and came back with a car full of plants....a hundred & forty quids worth & that's her version of cutting down a bit this year.........She said I can't complain as I buy plenty of booze....suppose she's correct.
