  2. Erm.. The Number 7 shirt..

    I guess I'm flat out lying then. When was it a "absolutely a thing"? Until Ronaldo wore it, there was no significance. It's a recent invention and not some lengthy tradition handed down through the years.
  3. Erm.. The Number 7 shirt..

    Grenfell? Edit: I see I was beaten to it.
  10. Music Do any Music acts get better with age ?

    I'm really not sure most bands get better after their debut. "Difficult second album" etc.

    4 games potentially.
  12. Jadon Sancho - "White Smoke over Old Trafford"

    Not to worry! Your English is great and such idioms in foreign languages are always a minefield. I humiliate myself in French quite regularly.
  13. Jadon Sancho - "White Smoke over Old Trafford"

    To stand corrected means to have had an error pointed out and that you accept the correction.
