    Are you a bit biased Nathan about your friend Hannon?
    Why don’t you even mention Francesca Cumani :bye:
    And to my other favourite poster Jac: Isn’t WJ Haggas more like the trainer of the missed chances once again?
    At least about the commentator I would agree with you, even if Simon always sounds like he has consumed one or two bottles of booze, doesn’t he :whistle: ?
