    So having been in Sydney for 4 days, I have managed to see a 'Borrowdale' ferry acrosss Darling Harbour and travel down 'Mowbray' Rd. I'm going to be looking out for other Sky Blue references on my trip.

    Has anyone else found and equally random references in places?

    I have a record by Cheap Trick, who I am sure were formed on the back of watching Leigh Jenkinson play. I am also always shopping in Mick Coop and occasionally drinking in the Wallace.

    You should have got on the Borrowdale ferry. When you get off you get almost all your money back without any logical explanation.

    Obscure, but very good.

    I once worked with a bloke called Geoffrey, who looked after the IT for the company and there was this other fella called Leigh who sat at a desk in the corner and annoyed the hell out of everyone, so at one point I shouted across the office, 'Geoff, block Leigh!.'

    Did the seller end up moving to Devante Cole Close after their deal on Mo Eisa Avenue fell through?

    There's a Highfield Road out here in Lydney, and they're building houses on it.

    I always like the WGS train moment in Mike Basset England manager - difficult to explain the humour to my German friend but tbf he watched the whole of it

    I don’t know if this counts but as a teenager in the early 90s I used to enjoy the Monty Python sketch with the communist leaders being asked the trick question, ‘what year did coventry City win the fa cup’?
    Funny but out of date!

    That was probably just an auditory hallucination due to the pain and trauma you were experiencing. What else did they have in store for you that day?

    There was a mention of us in the book Porno (sequel to Trainspotting) with Sick Boy getting angrier and angrier when remembering how Spud stole his subutteo Coventry City team.

    I was on Mljet for a couple of weeks at the start of July, one island down - lovely part of the world, so hope you're enjoying it. I drive down from Czech every year with the girls. They love the open sea in the little rocky coves and how quiet it is that far south. The tourists really thin out that far down.

    First time in Croatia and we all love it. Started near Dubrovnik, saw the sights there and moved to the island for a complete relax. Lovely country and people

    Stayed just near Dubrovnik in May. Really relaxing. Did you make it to the bay of abandoned hotels?

    Stayed in the next bay Srebreno. Went to see the hotels. Also went to Cavtat which is very pretty and used by some very expensive boats. Dubrovnik was very busy but did the walk round the city walls and the cable car and of course the game of thrones sites

    I'm sure in one of the Mission Impossible films there is a scene when they are sat in some hotel in London, on the radio in the background the scores from the footy come in, and Im sure its Newcastle v City... and If im correct we lost lol :D

    Terrific. We stayed in a villa about 20 min walk from srebreno bay and had an evening in cavtat. I’m desperate to go back.
    It wasn’t too bad in Dubrovnik when we were there but I understand you can forget about it if the cruise ships are in. I thought the city walls were great...albeit knackering!

    For the FLT and Play Off Finals, we parked in Highfield Road in Bushey and got the train over to Wembley.

    We thought it was an omen, and it's proven to have a good record so far!!
