      I think there is too much expectation put onto the English team as they are not serial winners but for every tournament the pundits are looking at who they will get in the semi-finals etc.

      I think they won the world cup in 1966 i could be wrong as its not as if its brought up every five minutes lol but apart from that, nothing.

      Looking at the English Premier league its possibly the best in the world but a large number of the best players are not English. So on paper we could look at these factors and suggest England will win the Euros, the World Cup but even though they have a very good team they’re not the best. That’s not to say they won’t win the euros as on any one day any team can beat any other team but the pundits just need to realise how difficult it is.

      Good luck England, to the final, but please don’t win it. 😜

        Mike your guys were really poor tonight. Denmark didn’t create a lot but they were the better team. A draws not a disaster it’s more the way the guys are playing.

            Kezo i tried to get on an EV tariff with Octopus with my Volvo xc40 plug in hybrid and my granny charger and was told it wasn’t possible without a proper EV charger.

              @wmcforum it really depends on your own specific situation. If you have a BEV it’s difficult to see past the two tariffs on Octopus Energy where you are charging, in my area, at 9p per kwh, for 4 hours and 7.5p per kwh for 6 hours

              If you have battery storage the batteries can be charged at the same cost and you can run your house all day at a cheaper rate.

              That’s why i think this topic is needed as there are a number of tariffs out there and working out which is best for you isn’t easy.

              If you are on a basic tariff then a fixed rate will let you know how much you will be charged over the fixed rate period which will give an element of piece of mind. The boffins are suggesting the price of electricity will go up at the end of the year but predicting how prices will go beyond that is difficult

                        @wmcforum i Don’t know if this practical, reasonable or achievable but could we have a fixed post at the top of the first page where we could add a link to each of the Tariffs available. There are a finite number of tariff on the market so it shouldn’t get too big. It would be good to be able to search a tariff when a member posts about it.  It would allow members to post a new tarrif when it becomes available.

                          So you are on “intelligent go” just now and considering “Agile”. Agile rates fluctuate on a half-hourly basis and Intelli Go gives six hours of EV charging at 7.5 p per kWh.

                          Agile looks less predictable but the long-term data shows that it could be cheaper in the long run although with the chance of some really high costs when conditions are unfavourable.

                                      Haven’t had it installed yet but they said over the phone 3/4 weeks.

                                      Further to my previous post the Scottish government have now withdrawn the grants and interest-free loans scheme associated with battery and solar installation.  If you had an application in before the 6th June you are fine and will still get the grant and loan.

                                          Just looked at the forecast for the next two weeks in my area. Rain every day and not a day over 19*C. I’m not a fan of very high temperatures, low to mid-20 is fine by me, but we had the heating on last week.

                                            Mike a win is a win no matter how it’s achieved as Willis says.

                                            They certainly looked a bit flat for periods of the game but the best is yet to come.

                                            They have a number of very good players but to win a tournament you need nearly all of them to be at their best. They should progress but will need to be better if they are going to win it.

                                                On the basis this topic will be helpful it would be good to know which company you are with and which tariff you are on. Octopus Energy have the most tariff options and they kindly group their tariffs so as those with electric cars, battery storage, solar or none of the above have a choice of tariff. If you are new to Octopus or are thinking if joining i would have a good look through the website and focus on the tariff that best suit your needs. If you are with a different supplier but think it would be of benefit to other members please tell us about it.

                                                      I don’t have a smart tariff just now as i don’t have a smart meter but i intend to change all of that in the near future.

                                                      I plan to get an Air Source Heat Pump, home battery storage and more solar in the near future and the Scottish Government make it easier to achieve this by giving interest-free loans on top of grants of up to £11,090 if you live in a rural location and £10,000 for all others. £7,500 towards an ASHP and £1250 each for battery storage and solar.
