Not a great start for Celina!
at 12:50 9 Aug 2022

Turkey isn't the arse end of nowhere. Have you been? Maybe he didn't fancy weekends at the First Floor Club, Rumours and the Manor Ballroom.

His career is likely to be over in 10 years, much less maybe if he picked up a serious injury. There's also the possibility to earn enough Brexit points to get a decent move back to England if he fancied it. Chances are the reality is it was a considered decision and not made out of any kind of grreed.

Barca blocked again from registering new players
at 22:46 8 Aug 2022

It"s gotten out of hand, just like it did with the last president, there's also a lot of talk of Messi returning next year. These figures at the top of the clubs here just need to be revered for the players they bring in.

There are some huge egos but somehow Perez at Madrid has been immune. The new Bernabeu is ridiculous in the context of the restraints La Liga is trying to enforce. The plans for the new Camp Nou reminds me of the Italian villagers who built towers higher than their neighbours, because they could.

He took the best deal available to him and his family like any sane individual in the workplace. There we go, I've corrected it for you.

I was watching my neighbour using a scythe on his grass yesterday. Took him about 10 minutes and was beautiful to watch. He's in his 80s and the skill was mesmerising. I was thinking about asking him to give me some lessons but I haven't got a front garden to practise on.

David Cotterill’s post-football life is, err, interesting
at 11:20 3 Aug 2022

There's a guy here in the village that has told me all these things and more. I chatted to him initially as he had a car with a UK reg. He told me he wasn't any nationality but a member of the world, I pushed him on it and he's Polish.

He told me that he lived without paying taxes in the UK and each time he had a court summons the court backed down when he told them there was no legal basis for forcing people to pay tax.

Some other things he made me aware of...

The UK is owned by a US corporation, registered in the state Delaware
The war in Ukraine was started by 5 US arms compansies to shift obsolete stock
The Queen can't enter London without permission of the mayor
The global elite are buying up farmland to reduce agricultural output and drive up prices
Various mentions of Bill Gates and the "plandemic"
...there was more of course.

Thing is he's a really nice guy, a bit eccentric (he's followed round the village by his pet sheep that he found in the forest and has built his own private beach on the local river to which he plans to add a sauna). I quite like the guy but it's impossible to have any sort of conversation with him without a new, or repeated, conspiracy rant.

He also lived in Bishop's Stortford.

Women's final.
at 16:54 31 Jul 2022

I'm not too optimistic, hopefully we can get off to a flyer but Germany totally nullified France in the semis, and looked decent in attack. I think it will be a struggle. We were second best first half against Spain and Sweden and that can't happen today as it's unlikely Germany will run out of steam like they did.

Just watching the Commonwealth Games
at 21:30 30 Jul 2022

To be fair they've just shown a Northern Ireland boxer and a Scottish swimmer getting a medal but in the cycling a couple of Welsh competitors were all but ignored. Generally though the English seem to be bigged up a lot more.

at 20:59 30 Jul 2022

I'd guess like cricket it's more commonwealth centred rather than global like tennis and golf.

I'm watching on the BBC tonight and it's a bit England-centric. Do the other home nations have their own.pundits, presenters and commentators?

Bolton still the same thuggish , shytehousery team I see !
at 18:01 30 Jul 2022

Looked like a clear penalty on the tv, maybe it was the angle but appeared nailed on. Thought Bolton were hardworking and pressed well first half. Didn't think they were especially dirty, cheating or thuggish which we have seen before.

Is this a trick question or are you completely misunderstanding the premise of diversity?

According to some we shouldn't even be debating it on here so what's the BBC doing putting out these videos? It's not an issue, it's pathetic, it' bollox apparently.

Several people on this thread have suggested reasons why young black girls might be disadvantaged when trying to take up football and they all sound reasonable to me. You can keep your head in the sand and believe everything is hunkydory if you like.

You've completely missed the point. It's an image of an all white England team that sparks the debate about whether there is a diversity problem in women's football. Just because you don't see an issue isn't a sensible reason to delete the thread.

Why are you so keen to shut down debate on diversity in women's football? It's not inappropriate at all, whatever your opinion may be.
