Re: Will you be going to the pub tomorrow?

I may venture out for a meal once the novelty has worn off in a few weeks time.

Re: Golden glove

Allison having van Dyke organising things isn't the worst thing in the World plus Liverpool have so much of the ball I think Pope's achievements are far greater in the grand scheme of things.
