Re: Froch Vs Groves

Thanks, would love to watch this one and can't seem to find anything confirming who is showing it.

I think Groves will outbox him and not get drawn into a war - I can see a narrow (but unanimous)...

Re: Moving to Dubai with 3 children

My missus is also a teacher in Dubai, we have kids and she has recently been offered a job at a GEMS school. Maybe there are other deals on offer (her current school offers her 25% off total fees.)

Re: BeIn Sports

I had the card inside a Showtime box - the Showtime engineer fitted it. For some reason it's not been working for the past couple of weeks, it just freezes the screen.
