Re: Actual (Association) Football Talk.

So, who's predicting tonight's score? 3-0 to Ireland? 4-0? It's hard to predict how many goals Ireland will score against this kind of opposition, it really depends on whether our world class striking talent feels the need to save a little for the Italy match. Man, I wouldn't want to be Casillas ri...

Ben Aaronovitch - Rivers of London Books

So a friend told me to read the first book and see what I thought. I finished it in 2 days and that was only because I had to work. I thought the first book is good, a bit of humour, good plot, fairly credible characters. Book 2 (Moon over Soho) has arrived today and I'll be starting it later; I've ...

I never said it was equal, the power is always with the employer when it comes to dress code but you can get leeway if your demands aren't too extreme and that was my basic point. Society as a whole doesn't have rules; but work generally does so you can't use work as an example of general societal ...
