    Slightly out there @Tennesseebantam@Tennesseebantam. As a general I could never be termed as 'midfield'. I think you are mixing me up with McLennan & the other pretenders before Abe saw sense and gave me overall control

    I think you have to understand what @Tennesseebantam@Tennesseebantam was referring to to understand ! It was a civil war reference.

    I'm the Commanding General of The US Army. A warrior in the field and an excellent horseman. You have to be strange to want to do that. I've also been dead for 130 odd years, how much stranger is that.

    Off topic, I know, but I was totally blown away by it when we went to New York. Amazing building.

    I survived skirmishes with Stonewall, & Bobby E Lee, so hell yes. Nathan Bedford Forrest concerned me a bit though.

    Yep. Despite winning a war and then being a President (well if Trump can do it so can any old rich…….) he still persists in drinking in a pub which sells Tetleys (now brewed in Wolverhampton)! Frankly my dear he should give a damn!

    Despite winning a war, being one of the greatest battlefield generals ever, and being a TWO TERM president whose recent ranking in the role has risen dramatically (probably due to Trump being so bad), it appears I don't have enough influence over certain people to force them to change their habits and walk that 0.10 of a mile extra to VP .

    It's actually a negotiated settlement. Drink pre match in the Clyde and the "youf" who thinks the TFC is an old man's pub doesn't a) trip over his pet lip on the way to the match and b) will eat in the Kashmir at £10 a curry rather than trip over his lip again whilst insisting we go to the International at £20 a pop.

    I've lost it, I really have. It's a good job I was on top of my game on 9th April 1865 when I told Bobby Lee where to go. otherwise America would still be a slave nation, screaming the Rebel Yell at any opportunity.

    I didn't know Tetley's was brewed in Wolverhampton. Last time I looked it was brewed in Northampton. That's not good !!

    If living in the 1860's is strange, then guilty as charged !

    Cincinnati was his favourite horse. Had the horse for 18 years, Surely better than an MGB GT
