    Do you like the people you sit near at the match?

    Not had an S/T since 2007 but always try and go back to the same seat in Block 18 - people there are great.

    Sandinista!

    Magnificent Seven bassline is a Norman Watt-Roy sample, I believe, He defo wrote it as he plays it in his own set, I'm guessing Simonen can play it live, mind.

    The space shuttle that fell to earth

    Different gravy these people aren't they? Closest I've come to that attitude are test pilots. I think the Shuttle missions were risky by nature - I'm not sure, but were they MORE reliable than estimated in terms of fatal failure? Sure I read that somewhere.

    The 70's and Thatcher

    Just as I thought. Entirely renegotiable. If the management could be bothered.

    Are you in this picture?

    yeh - I was told I watched it but can't remember seeing it. I absolutely DO remember my mam being quite vocal about it. Not as vocal as when Poland knocked us out of the world cup, mind.

    The 70's and Thatcher

    Easier to change the rules than to let some despot destroy the whole industrial base of the nation? Toughy. Weak as p!ss management.

    The 70's and Thatcher

    Again, decent management should deal with this. Not sure this is how Toyota Derby do things ;)

    The 70's and Thatcher

    Decent management would have helped, especially with the 'social cohesion' aspects, rather than in maintaining the class structure. Thatcher did as you said and attacked the lowest common denominator - her 'cleverest' outcome was to engineer the divisive self-destructive culture of setting...

    Goalkeepers that have played for 'Boro, who were worse than Tom Glover

    Ben Roberts - the more he leapt, the shorter he got. Yes, I am thinking of the Chelsea FA Cup Final opening goal.

    The 70's and Thatcher

    In line with these points is the observation that the 'enemy within', the British worker, is nowadays a paragon of industrial virtue, powering the manufacturing base in areas like the car industry (though now foreign-owned). Maybe they weren't the problem all along?

    Band of Brothers E9 discovering POW camp

    Yeah it does - made barely 20 years after it had ended. For context, that's the same period of time since we won the League Cup.

    Band of Brothers E9 discovering POW camp

    When I was a kid and I'd watch the World at War with me dad (nice family viewing) there was an episode on that about the camps, and I asked him (as a D-Day vet) if he'd seen one, and the way he described it was as if he'd been in exactly the same situation as Easy Company in that they'd...

    First ever Middlesbrough game

    January 1975, Arsenal at home, in the East Stand leaning against the pitchside wall, 0-0. It was a night match I think, staggering clash of colours with Boro's red and the luminous green pitch. Boro's defenders, looked MASSIVE, almost like scaled-up humans. All unforgettable scents and...

    Tube Geeks... Something to waste a few hours.

    Boroughs, you say? ;)

    Tube Geeks... Something to waste a few hours.

    Even if you're an established railway nerd (cough) it's tricky as it wants the full name - so all these 'Broadway" and "High Road" names can knack you too.

    Tube Geeks... Something to waste a few hours.

    I tried to not watch any of his vlogs when I was doing it so I had to do it all by memory (not failsafe, that) - I got to 62% then changed my laptop so I stopped at that point! There are definitely an awful lot of them I'd never have got, even some of the ones in central London round Hyde Park...
