How the fuck are you supposed to know who's who? There might be a thin blue line next to the home side's name, but if there is it's too small to see on a video that doesn't go full screen or enlarge!

I don't understand why BF live video can't be maximised for all sports and not just horse racing.

Never understood the appeal of guinness such a heavy drink and tastes like slops. Only mild/stout I've ever had that was decent was Bank's Mild.

I find all stouts smooth and go down well but with Guinness, unlike most other stouts, you can really taste the roasted barley. :)

The Guinness in Ireland is a lot smoother/creamier to drink, you would notice the difference for sure.

Ireland's a long way to go for a pint of Guiness. :)

Very true. I'm not a big Guinness drinker but I visited the Guinness Storehouse about 5 years ago and the complimentary pint is poured to perfection as you'd expect. But it shows just how few pubs even herein Ireland pull a proper pint.

I've seen plenty of 'oul fellas' complain to barmen when their pint isn't left sitting long enough before the second pour. If you drink Guinness in the UK and you don't know what the second pour is then your local isn't doing it right :)

When I first visited the Seychelles some 40 years ago I was amazed to find a Guinness brewery there!

FFS, keep the microphone well away from the players when national anthems are sung. :lol:
