Robert M Pirsig has died at the age of 88. I really enjoyed Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance (A Inquiry Into Values). A classic duality. Both a good story and a valuable lesson on life all rolled into one. Also enjoyed Lila (An Inquiry Into Morals). Stumbled on Zen at a charity shop. It's one of a small selection of books I've kept and read many times.

Perfidious from the latin perfidia "treachery" - includes Janus faced as part of it's definition - two faced: insincere and deceitful. Sums them up nicely.

Arbs is Ian? I thought Bosman was Ian?

Once again we're in agreement. I'm looking forward to a looking up the table next season rather than down as I was at the start of this one. It's really starting to feel like we've got our Rangers back.
Tim Nice But ... Optimism? Where'd That Come From?
Good to see the revival continue. It's been a long time coming and seems ironic that it begins on a shoestring budget after the excesses of yesteryear.
Tim Nice But ... Shoestring, Wasn't That A TV Detective Series?
Tend to agree, I think we'll be ok now. But this is the R's and we can be oh so unpredictable. Having said that if we can hold this team together, and not get raided in the transfer window, next season could be a humdinger. It's nice to be feeling positive for a change, and looking forward to being entertained by a team that is performing as a team. It's been a while.
Tim Nice But ... I Think We're Alone Now
I view the fake org occasionally, but refuse to join. I did see a suggestion from the gnome that "perhaps we can move on after all this time". Well I have, but not onto that cnut shafted what was, as you say, the world's best message board. It's a crying shame it never recovered. It's still my first point of call and the only one I'm mildly active on. I registered for Clive's LFW, but have never posted.

I saw somewhere that he won't be eligible to play up't norf today. Some dodgy EFL legal eagle blox. So, stacking trolleys it is then.

On a musical link....... After he Fool'em game I wandered into Brixton and found myself an exile on Cold Harbour Lane before going to Electric Avenue.

The area was awash with Chelscum and Arse fans too. I even worked for a bloke who was a Cheski AND Brentford supporter. He took a lot of stick over the years; and deserved every moment of it too ;-) I think the Reading lot were generally quieter, but there were plenty of 'em about. I did find a few fellow R's, but reckon we were out numbered by the fakers. In this instance quality made up for quantity.
Being a Bletchley boy, I was used to the London overspill effect. There were bloomin' hundreds of London team fans everywhere; along with the obligatory southern Manure and cess-'Pool fans.
