Re: Favourite covers

'Where did our love go'...the original version was by the Supremes in 1964.

It was then covered by Donnie Elbert in 1971, I much prefer this version - it became a Northern Soul favourite..Rose Room anyone?

Re: Cricket world cup on free to air tv

Is this correct?

India, if they win their final group match, don’t yet know where they will be playing their semi-final..(we do) had they been able to buy semi-final tickets early, would that have been a bright move?

Re: Cricket world cup on free to air tv

We possibly could though that relies on India beating Sri Lanka (likely) and Australia losing to South Africa ( unlikely) both tomorrow.

England vs India could obviously go either way - I doubt there will be the crowd imbalance at E’ton for a semi final, that existed there when we last played India.
