Boro v Preston North End 2-0 (Storey og, Tavernier)

So I rarely get to use this information so may as well post.

most people prefer the taste of Pepsi (in blind taste tests) but buy Coca Cola. In fact after the original Pepsi max challenge in America sales of Coca Cola went through the roof despite Pepsi winning the taste test.

I'm a big fan of White Hag's Black Boar BA stout, at 10.2% it's not one to have on a school night though (and if you had a session on it today you'd die, plus also probably be bankrupt by the end of the day!)

Yeah thats a big beasty alright! Quite a lot of Irish BA stouts floating around these days, I've almost certainly had all of them at one time or another and that one is pretty good.

It's for the Americans who go over there and who "won't drink that foreign stuff"

And yes there is a massive amount of irony there with it being manufactured in Mexico.

You don’t meet many Americans in Cuba mate.

I'm sure I read somewhere that Coke would re-produce similar products to basically ruin Pepsi's version of them.

Remember the weird Coke and Pepsi flavours like vanilla, orange etc? I'm sure it was one of those that Coke created a version to basically kill the idea dead for both companies.

Edit: It wasn't the flavoured Coke/Pepsi but it was the clear Coke back in the 90's.

Here's a taste test for you:

Take any cola and let it go flat and it tastes horrible and even more so at room temperature.

Yeah a bit like Champagne and icecream at room temperature. Anything can be ruined if you put an effort into it. Like appointing Pulis and Warnock to manage a football team.

There's no need to have a go at Warnock. This is the man that saved the club from relegation. So behave yourself.

Surely these large companies standardise the water they use? 

It's pretty easy to engineer the exact softness, mineral content etc. of water that you want, and I know Samuel Adams in the US standardise their water across all plants. Find it hard to believe a company like Coca Cola or Guinness wouldn't as they'd want their product to taste the same everywhere. 

They could, but all that water purification plant isn't cheap. The extra manufacturing time, plus the maintenance costs would just make the end product more expensive.

You're right. I'll just leave him at room temperature😉

Fun fact, Scotland is the one of only 2 countries in the world where Coca Cola isn’t the top selling soft drink due to the popularity of Irn-Bru.

The other country is Cuba, they really haven’t allowed anything American into the country since 1959.

I keep thinking Irn Bru is exactly the kind of thing Heston Blumenthal would have come up with if he'd been asked to create a new soft drink.

You have no idea what its made of, or what it tastes like. All you know is it isn't as bad as you were expecting and that its actually not too bad, once you've accepted the fact it tastes like nothing else on Earth. 

I know its made in Scotland, but I'm pretty sure its not made from gurr-durrs. 😁

I really like cherry and vanilla Coke. But my favourite is the Christmas edition cinnamon flavour. 🥰

Allegedly has over thirty different flavourings including quinine..  kills mosquitos stone dead

An essential for jungle expeditions then.

Stay hydrated and malaria-free with 1 bottle! Probably cheaper than insect repellent too.

    • Whilst accepting "Barbie Girl" is a parody, I have to agree that AR is right about admitting to singing it...  though I would have had more respect for SD if he had chosen "My Ding-a-ling" 🙂 
    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
