I think they need to make a standard over the odds value wise signing that has become so standard for Man U in recent years because they are Man U, they are loaded and they can and sign Vardy.  They need some leadership and experience in that dressing room, basically don't have a striker for the rest of the year and he won't cost as much as they were wiiling to over pay for Sanchez and others.   He is a total grafter 100% of the time which is what most of the United dressing room aren't.

Leicester have shown at the right price they are happy to sell anyone to anyone (Man U are currently a direct rival and they still sold Maguire), Vardy would get a short term huge pension type deal (probably £350k a week) to retire on which he deserves and Man U get the final two years of him at the very top level (he surely has to start aging soon given his skill set).  

Seems a perfect win win win trade for all 3 parties for me.   £60m and £350k a week for a 2-3 year deal.  Chicken feed to the Man U money printing machine.   Too much for Vardy and Leicester to turn down at this stage of his career.  Plus the huge lol ego factor that Man U are buying past their prime players over the odds price wise from Leicester who have had his prime years after doing it themselves for decades to clubs would be a sharp reality check of where Man U are shopping currently.

Leicester accepted Arsenal's £20M bid for Vardy near the end of Wenger's reign but he turned the move down.

On a brighter note, to my admittedly easily-impressed eye this Brandon Williams kid is different gravy, he looks really special to me, especially for one who's barely 19 years old.

Yes Andrew. I've been looking at these. I bet you can use them to override all sorts of "Limp Mode" situations too.

There is nothing worse than being forced to drive home at 30mph because your engine management system thinks your particulate filter is blocked, or its getting duff information from your crank sensor.

Bring back grease nipples and oily rags I say.

It can be useful for activating things that may be an optional extra when buying a car such as SatNav and wing mirrors that dip when reversing. Even unlocking different driving modes like economy or performance. All good stuff but as you say it's a shame that with all new cars you cant tinker under the bonnet anymore, but you can with the ECU.

Or maybe the corporate plan is to stand pat in January and deliberately finish outside of the top 6 (to be able to play only once a week next season like sub par Chelsea and Leics teams did to win the title in recent years) so they have a huge scheduling edge next season to try and make the jump slowly back to the promised land via a top 4 finish next season.  Ole gets time this year to experiment with any players he wants in the write off season. The new crop of kids are all a year older and more experienced next year etc etc.  Given the behaviour last night and entitlement of most man u 'fans' would they be intelligent enough to realise finishing outside the top 6 this season is a big edge next season?

I wouldn't be against them tanking this season.   It pretty standard in the NFL/NBA for top teams to tank and write off seasons (Golden State this season) to have a better edge the following season.

Would be nice if Martial fancied turning up as the main man for a few months now though given he is paid to perform like the main man.

Tikay, hope the battery charging works, but modern batteries aren't like the old type. Quite often once flat that's the end of em.
Also if your car has that stupid stop/start nonsense expect to pay about £250 for a battery.

Marv.

Yes, my car has the "stop start" thing, it turns itself off at traffic lights etc then turns back on when I touch the accelerator.

£250 for a battery? FML.

Well I'll know soon enough. The charger has arrived and I've got it all connected up & there are charging lights flashing & all sorts of LED indicators flashing on & off.  

Fingers crossed.



Sit rep on batt?

Well it took a good charge, & whilst it was charging, I kept popping out to the car to check it was going OK. And I noticed an odd thing - I could hear a fan or pump whirring quietly in the background. As you know, this often happens on cars these days after the engine has been turned off, cooling fans, fuel pumps or whatever often continue to run for a while. But I had not used the car for several days, so that was odd. Then I noticed a dashboard alert, "Battery Discharging whilst engine off" or words to that effect.

Anyway, once it had been charging for an hour, I disco'd the charger, fired her up & she started instantly. Then I went for a half-hour drive to give it a bit more. 

When I got back & turned her off, I checked under the bonnet & the fan/pump background noise had stopped, & it's been fine since.

I fired her up the next morning to see if the charge had held, & it was fine, ditto this morning.

I don't use the car a great deal which can't help I suppose. I used to nip up to Tesco every morning in the car, but since my health drive (diet, exercise) began on January 1st I've been walking to the shops every day.

There, never use 1 word when 200 will do.


Words are like legs, use em or lose em.

I know my enquiry was a bit on the brief side, but that's just an old habit from my commando days.

Back in the day we didn't get a message saying "Battery discharging whilst engine off". We had to remove a battery lead and then brush it against the terminal. If there was a spark it meant there was a drain on the battery.

At the risk of lowering the tone, I took short today while walking the dogs and had to engage ninja alfresco crapping mode.

During my post purge musings I realised that everyone understands the meaning of the phrase, "Took short" but no one knows it's origin.
