Maybe a link would have helped, then, given that not everybody is a football fan.

After all, if I posted that Denzil Davies has died, the overwhelming majority of people on here wouldn't have a clue who he was.

Jeez Brevet, a link might have helped. I had to go and Google him and everything... :grin:

I like Huw Edwards's comment on Twitter; "He never served in a Labour cabinet while far less able people did." Pretty good put down if you ask me!

I was at work - not all of us have jobs where 'work' consists of telling the kids to have a sleep on the mats in the corner while teacher browses the internet! :lmao:

Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with his childhood friend Bill Gates, has died. He was 65.

Allen’s company Vulcan said in a statement that he died Monday. Earlier this month Allen said the cancer he was treated for in 2009, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, had returned.
