Goaaaaaarrrrrrrn Tim
Yes, it's that time of year again when all of England gets behind the Henman boy in anticipation of great things, only to be left disappointed. Fear not, using your skill and judgement you decide which one of these well known Timothothy's warrants a better bet! Will you go for Timothy Spall perhaps, or Tim Brooke-Taylor, the famous(!) Prof Tim Crane from UCL maybe, or 007 Timothy Dalton? My money though is on Timothy Taylor (Landlord), a classic strong pale ale, 4.3%, guaranteed to hit the spots that Henman doesn't.
So Tony, What do you think of this website?
