Jesus Christ. I can't bring myself to watch even the highlights. All I remember from watching it live was Henry hanging his head and Arsene looking dejected.

I once re-watched Sol's goal and that red card.

Pain.

We could have won the league in 02/03 if the players didn't bottle it. Or, we could have stopped ManU from winning the treble.

But nothing hurts more than that final.

07/08 comes second. Probs the best football ever played in Prem history. We were robbed. Tragic.

Did the one minute silence thing for the queens husband thingy.

Outside the building with a public that didn't give a shit about it walking past

Kinda embarrassing.

Very disappointing to see what we have become that people can't wait 1 minute.

I remember we did the clap for NHS on Thursdays. People joined in for that.

No one cared yesterday though. Kinda sad.

Don't know I kind of think its refreshing, people who don't give a sht not faking it.

If you care then do the 1 minute silence, if not ........ don't, nothing wrong with that.

For me I usually work in an office and the amount of fake, company wide "minutes silence" BS I've had to endure for all sorts of reasons, well I work from home at the moment and I'm glad.

At my age now I can't be dealing with it all, being fake, I respect what I respect and I don't what I don't, same as everyone else.

I've got some respect for the Queen, she seems like a dutiful person who's take her role seriously over the years, I'm sure she's flawed like the rest of us but she seems genuine in her dedication.

Philip .......... I'm going to be honest, hell no, I'm usually a good judge of character and I don't want to speak ill of the deceased but I can just imagine him with the rest of the elitist toffs in his hey day talking down about people and making racist remarks while sipping a brandy down the members only clubs, he definitely struck me as the type, probably more so than any of the other Royals.

No ones perfect and I don't hold that against him especially as its just an impression I have, but I'm certainly not going to mourn him either.

Old Phil lived the good life that's for sure another one who couldn't keep it in his pants, some people are making him out to be a saint lol He had a good inning best of everything all his life so I don't feel sorry for the guy, didn't like or dislike him.

The thing is, we never got to know him! He stayed in the background, did what he had to do, to the best of his ability. His funeral says more about him, in that he wanted nothing special and was basically a simple man in an exalted position. He did indeed have a fabulous life, but he didn’t actually retire until he was 96 FFS!

Some great anecdotes about him going around currently.

I served in the RAF Regiment Queens Colour Sqn for three years and was in the lining party outside Westminster Abbey for Mountbatten’s funeral.

So I was watching our military very closely and as usual they were superb. The two bearer parties carrying the coffin were spot on in a difficult role. Mind you the rehearsals are relentless!

We do do these events extremely well.

I said that to my wife on Saturday. She was worried that something terrible would happen when they were carrying the coffin up those stairs and I told her they'd have rehearsed that hundreds of times. Over and over.

If God is all powerful why did it take him 6 days to create the universe?

Shouldn't he have been able to make it so instantly?

Have to ask also why he created the heaven and the earth in the dark. It was only afterwards that he said 'let there be light'. Surely it would have been more sensible to have a bit of light in the first place.
