Hey Gav, are you going to do a Euro 2016 sweepstake?
at 09:30 26 May 2016

I thought the one of the last World Cup worked quite well and added a little bit of interest.

Aside from anything else, I had forgotten they signed a player called Bjelland last season.

NYT piece on US gun violence
at 10:27 23 May 2016

This is very good, thoroughly depressing but very good. Most gun deaths aren't in high profile shootings or careless shooting by police but black on black and generally both under-reported and unsolved.

Another good finish there
at 19:57 21 May 2016

Anyone else watching the cricket?
at 12:22 21 May 2016

Decent morning for England, Anderson is bowling really well and looks like he'll take more wickets. Sri Lanka not really enjoying this 57/2 and still 150 behind.

The crowd are warming up though. My mate there has missy told me they've had a group of Mexicans berating a group of Donald Trumps neat them already.

FT reporting that Villa's new owner not quite who they claimed yesterday
at 16:08 20 May 2016

The Chinese business group which has agreed to buy Aston Villa football club admitted on Friday that it controlled only one listed company, not the five previously claimed in a press release.

The admission raises questions about the due diligence on Tony Xia, the businessman behind the deal. He is chairman of the Recon Group, a Beijing and Hangzhou based private holding company which controls 75 per cent of Lotus Health Group, a large producer of the food additive MSG.

Full story here, registration required though:

Good piece on Coventry's FA Cup win
at 10:52 20 May 2016

and Houchen's header, one of the great FA Cup FInal goals not scored by a man who's family travelled on a special bus.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2016/may/20/golden-goal-keith-houchen-

The description of the goal at Old Trafford is superb:

Houchen then won a tackle with Billy Garton, blocked Mick Duxbury’s clearance, poked a shot that Chris Turner saved, blocked the rebound with his face, then poked in from under the bar to complete a glorious mess of a goal.

Cricket: SL win toss and put England in

I'm sure they'll be looking forward to Leeds in mid-May.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-v-sri-lanka-2016/engine/current/match/913613

If England get to lunch without losing a wicket it'll be a good start, even more so given Hales is still opening.
