Amazing, I love it. It's just a lovely relatively local getaway. I can't wait to go back. Literally first holiday we're planning post-pandemic. Friend of family runs a B&B there so we've been a few times over the years to stay over.

Yes agree lovely place Whitby stayed at a B&B a number of times over the years, goth weeks good a lot of effort and money goes in to those outfits.

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Never been to Whitby. Is it worth visiting?

I always liked it - even as a kid.

Best fish & chips I ever had. They also have waffle stalls (used to have bananas, cream and syrup on mine).

Even though it was always busy, it still had that quaint fishing town vibe...very picturesque. You can visit the abbey (if you don't mind the uphill walk) and learn everything you ever wanted to know about Dracula (apparently it was the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel). You can also get boat rides that go a short way out of the harbour and back.

Blackpool's nice...more your drunken weekend kind of place. Whitby is better if you want a more relaxed getaway (not to mention closer).

It's the perfect place to go to forget you're a Boro fan for a while, too. 😅

Birthplace of Arthur Brown...  Bringer of Fire 🙂

Seen him live about 4 years ago, incredible that he's still doing all of his stage theatrics at his age!

Definitely an experience...  think there is a little more attention to Health and Safety since the well-publicised accident. Very lucky that copious amounts of beer were close by to put him out. Read somewhere that he was one of Bowie's inspirations, so in his own way, a bit of a pioneer

Unfortunately Whitby is now over ran with tourists which has taken away from its charm. Incredible place and somewhere i visit as often as i can (outside peak times).

I wasn't sure if this should go in the summer transfer thread so I've stuck it in here instead

https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/sources-middlesbrough-and-bournemouth-track-18-year-old-after-chelsea-trial/

"Championship duo Middlesbrough and AFC Bournemouth are both tracking Hornchurch winger Jili Buyabu with a view to a potential transfer, sources have exclusively told Football League World.

The 18-year-old was trialled by Chelsea over the summer and featured in a friendly for their under-23 squad against National League side Woking, but despite impressive he was not offered a contract by the Blues."

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
