Do we know much about their ways of working - i.e. do they favour certain businesses / leisure areas - and inde...

Re: Weymouth 0-9 Rushden & Diamonds...memories required

I did the Match Report for the game, and remember having to be suitably diplomatic about Lee Tomlin's antics when he rather over-celebrated.

Re: The Future of Football

It's certainly very difficult to predict what might happen. One of the parallels to such upheaval to all walks of life has to be the war years (obviously with a major difference in scale).
