Re: Series 78 Ramblings and Spoilers....

Philip over Toby (though it will be a cracker I think, yet can see it going the other way) This definitely would be a match that could swing either way, as both players have their respective strengths (Toby's word knowledge is phenomenal, but Philip probably just about edges on consistency etc) Wha...

Toby do you have autism? If you do I'll be rooting for you to win the final. But I don't wanna know anything about the finals. Don't you think that's a bit of a personal question to ask?
