For no apparent reason, here are five films that have numbers in the title… and I haven’t cheated by selecting sequels! One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest 1975 Two Hands 1999 Three Amigos 1986 Eight Seconds 1994 9 (Not the other Nine!) Do you have any favourites that I’ve missed?
With Andres Rios and Danny Hoesen struggling in front of goal, we splurged a hefty $8.5m dollars on 25-year-old Syrian striker Omar Kharbin. Sadly, he wouldn’t be able to join us until the transfer window opened. Experienced Austrian winger Christoph Kropfl was also snapped up but for a lot less money! We would later addContinue reading “FIFA 20: Signings, Injuries… and some goals!”
Houseplants are a wonderful addition to a home… but what is it about the interior flora that makes them so? They add colour, fragrance and a little bit of nature to a house. They require a little bit of care (Water, light but maybe not too much) but can contribute to a happy home. LookContinue reading “Houseplants”
We went to Pakistan for a Test series… it was to be one of England’s greatest wins (No hyperbole)! Pakistan posted 468 first up in the opening Test but we responded with 454 (Root 125, Crawley 105). Pakistan then made 347-6 declared… but we only chased down 362! All of our top seven contributed asContinue reading “Cricket Captain 2021: Choked by the Chokers!”
Earlier this summer, I posted about our apple tree… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/07/11/apple-tree/ Not for the first time, it appears as though it might be diseased! Online research leads me to believe that it’s possibly apple scab and that eradicating such disease is virtually impossible. It seems that many trees aren’t resistant and that removing this tree andContinue reading “Apple Trouble!”
This week’s song comes all the way from Australia. It’s a little island near New Zealand, incase you didn’t know! DMA’s courted attention with a live performance of Cher’s Believe. They’ve released some good songs since, including this one titled Silver.
Slowly but surely (?!) my tomatoes are progressing. We also have some plants that we bought but my youngest daughter ripped off the tomatoes as soon as they appeared… so I don’t know how much hope I hold out for the above seed grown ones! I’m quite a brutal pruner, in order to let lightContinue reading “Tomatoland”
Having been appointed as Manager of San Jose Earthquakes, I quickly delved into the transfer market. Three players (Bulgarian winger Todor Nedelev, South African defensive midfielder Thato Mokeke and further midfield steel in New Zealander Matthew Ridenton) were snapped up on free transfers. They’d compliment a youthful squad. A couple of players were allowed toContinue reading “FIFA 20: Do You Know the Way to San Jose?”
Pond two features three fish, often soaking up the sun at the right-hand side. Pond one is so covered in green, whether it be pond plants themselves or overhang, that it’s actually quite hard to see the water. Frogs still frequent the surface but visible newt activity is less prominent. That is to be expectedContinue reading “Pondlife”
As the table below confirms, a whopping three of you (Actually one vote was mine!) participated in my recent poll! 100% of voters tipped defending champions Manchester City to retain their crown… and obviously cursed them as they went onto lose their opening match! That result, a win for Tottenham Hotspur, probably already makes LiverpoolContinue reading “Who Will Win the English Premier League? The Results”
