    BFSE not signed up for next season - yet

    Will Evans and Raynor be here next season? I hope so. That said I feel this season in particular has been an advert for what Steve Evans can do with a low budget, Imagine what he can do for a club with a larger budget chasing promotion next time round.

    I hope you are right, but online shopping has become popular and a lot of people have noticed supermarket beer is a lot cheaper than pubs. The same goes to a lesser extent with football for the same price as a ticket for football is about the same as a round of golf. Nothing is guaranteed.

    I haven't got Netflix, but I do Know from personal experience in the early 70s the that large Russian 'trawlers' were using air lifts (like a large vacuum cleaner) to collect all possible fish on the seabed, we were told this went for production of fishmeal. According to the diver who filmed...

    Agreed. Also the captain is only nominally in charge whilst transiting the canal. A qualified canal pilot is controlling the ship. Crosswinds could have been the initial cause of the incident, but an inquiry hopefully will get to the truth.

    This article gives an informed opinion of Biden's presidency so far. though a bigger problem looming for the American people is when not if Kamala Harris replaces him in the next year or so. There was no way with her political opinions she would have got to the White House as a presidential...
