    If you'd seen the keeper we were facing you couldn't argue with the approach, i think there was 1 occasion in the 40 minute game where he did anything that remotely resembled a dive of any sort, bless him, all he managed was half a step and a barely stretched out arm to my effort despite how long he had to see it coming. Didn't stop our forward smashing about 5 efforts straight at the fat lump though, someone had to take matters into their own hands and put an end to the wasted chances, i duly obliged.

    How are things over in the UK boys?
    Treacherous or a bit of non event?

    Snow is still falling steadily here in Coalville but the roads remain clear due to traffic.

    Bit of a non event so far. If it carries on all day and into the night then things might get a bit troublesome.

    Non-event.
    swaps between sleet & rain in brum.
    According to the forecast, only wednesday has any other likelihood of snow.
    Shocker - the mail/express over-exaggerated...

    Finally arrived by us last night but by morning was only really a slight smattering. Back with a bit of a vengeance around 10 o'clock this morning & has stuck a bit stronger. Still hardly a full on blizzard though

    Had similar here, suns out now though and there's no sign that any snow was ever around.

    Very icy this morning. Treacherous footpaths (remember when they used to be gritted - one for the "getting old" thread?).
    Main roads seemed ok, but side roads etc looked very slippy.

    I see from the news this morning that it's minus 12 around the Midlands!! with substantial snow forecast for the Friday and Sat.

    Chaos for football matches - playing and getting to them...

    It's only raining here and it's 5 degrees, thank fuck!

    It is struggling to get above 0 at the moment. Will probably drop to -6 later.

    We have snow predicted for Friday/Saturday which means Asda will be a fucking nightmare when I go to do my shopping on Thursday as people prepare for the end of the world.

    Was very treacherous when I was coming home on Monday night, it hasn't got above freezing since.
    The rain falls hard on a humdrum town.

    Thursday into Friday may well be quite bad. We shall see though as snow is notoriously difficult to predict with any great certainty. Could prepare for armageddon and get about an inch, or assume it will be alright and be digging the car out of two foot snowdrifts on saturday morning.

    As a precaution I will buy in extra beer. Think we are okay for food.

    It's ok I'll buy a snow plow if I'm struggling to get there.

    Well, I really hope you get stranded right outside a snow plough shop or you'll be well and truly fucked..

    Exactly Roy I'll take the risk but I think I'll be fine. It's just getting off those pesky side roads.

    AMBER EARLY WARNING of SNOW for northwest England, west Midlands and east Wales.
    As the weather breaks down, an area of snow looks increasingly likely to spread from the southwest. Winds will strengthen and blizzard conditions are likely, especially over high ground. Accumulations of more than 10-15 cm of snow could well occur quite widely, with the risk of 25 cm or more over high ground.
    Clearly there is the potential for some severe disruption, and the public are advised to watch for updates to this warning and to be prepared to alter travel plans.
    Valid from 0400 until 1800 Friday.

    I think it might be more than just pesky side roads...

    I think I'll be barricading myself in over the weekend. It had better clear in time for darts next Monday!

    I'll risk it, I'm sure a 13 year old corsa won't have any trouble in the snow
