I'd say the Green Bay telephone is red hot with enquiries about Rodgers anyway.  Is it just me or does he always seem to make noises on draft weekend. Drafting a CB probably hasn't excited him either.

Giants allow the Bears to move up and get Fields. I wonder what Dalton thinks of that.

The NFL draft is tonight. The Jaguars are picking first and will Take Trevor Lawrence from Clemson at quarterback. The rest of the draft is unpredictable and will make for a great late nights entertainment.

I saw some predictions having Fields available around 9th position. I'd be very surprised at that...

Gonna be an interesting weekend.

Slowly but surely getting into this now.  Weather has been good and home working has helped me to get out a minimum of twice a week.  Gradually getting the average speed up too but it's a long oul process.  Amazed at some of the times people I know put in on Strava.

I was worried at the start as a person who really hasn't been on a bike since my teenage years and thus opted for a gravel bike with 40mm tires. now i'm getting a bit more confident i'm thinking I should have been a little braver...

House of the Dragon is officially in production I see from the hype on twitter. A prequel to Game of Thrones. Should be out in 2022.

Hopefully it's a cracker.

Definite change of pace last night and Carmichael is a brilliant character brilliantly acted everything is set up for a grandstand finish.

Still skeptical as to whether Nesbitt will actually appear or not. I hope it's just a bit of trolling and he doesn't!

Was hoping the Spanish police would do us all a favour.

Finished the Falcon and winter soldier series.  I thought this was an excellent addition to the marvel series.  I never had much interest in either of these characters from the films but there ya go...

Looking forward to the Loki series in June.

Found it a bit strange that Kate clearly was lured to her death by Joanne but yet let her continue to carry a gun. That's a decent leap of trust there...

Carmichael is so hateful a character. That smirk is enough to send temper levels through the roof.

I have a few pages left to read on A Belfast Child by John Chambers.  I haven't been able to put it down.  So easily read and yet gripping.  I'm sure many from up North would empathise with his story or at least aspects of it anyway.

Chicken probably, although I am swayed towards fish because of the huge variety of types.

Am I the only one who hasnt seen a second of Line of Duty?
We hadn’t watched any, and started with Series One last week. We’re watching 2 per night at the minute and enjoying it.
Where are you getting the early series?

Early ones are on Netflix

Welcome to the world of cycling, prepare to say bye bye to your hard earned, it's never ending! I honest to God have 5 different sets of long fingers gloves for different wintery conditions,  then there's the fingerless mitts for summer!

Lidl Winter gloves are as good a pair of Winter gloves as you'll get for under a £10er. Planet X & Carnac (wool effect) are good spring/autumn gloves exactly what you need at the minute.

Gloves are £2.99 atm, ridiculous price, my favourite gloves!

Cheers Benny! I'll have a nosey through that site.

Completely new to all this.  Went last month and got a bike on the old cycle to work scheme.  Firstly, getting a bike below 1k wasn't easy! Been out a few times and have to say I have been enjoying it. Now I would have uttered the words that I wont be wearing all the gear but after a few outings it's quite clear that a bit of padding would go a long way lol.

Can anyone recommend me a pair of windproof cycling gloves for a reasonable price?

The Ukranian centre half's attempted take out of an NI player has to be seen; made SSN this morn, even better on the big screen

Unbelievable.  The fact that she was certainly getting to the ball first and changed direction to take her out beggars belief.

Cracking Line of Duty last night.

So much happened but so much left hanging. Best of the season so far.

Fingers can be pointed in several directions. Roll on next Sunday.

Unreal episode. I haven't a clue what's going on half the time but still enjoy it.  I'm constantly wondering who certain people are cos I cant remember them.  This is a show I could watch again from the start.

Finished Your Honour over the weekend. Decent, but hated the ending.
