Been shopping this morning
at 15:04 30 May 2020

Letchworth Herts very quiet still, no queue at all for the supermarket. Noticed a subway open and local bakers but that was about the only change. Morrison’s had opened up the self serve tills as they’d put in a load of screens.

A paragraph from Barnsley supporting Dickie Bird's 'Britain'
at 13:41 29 May 2020

Having attended town games over the years v Birmingham (and certainly a lot 'back in the day') i can confirm beyond all reasonable likelihood that would have been the case. I also attended a Cambridge game v them in 1979, when i can honestly say i heard the worst abuse towards certain members of the Cambridge team that I've ever heard at a football match.

Yes whilst you could have put that a lot better, it’s certainly true that after weeks of moaning about how vague and confusing the guidelines supposedly are, people seem to be crystal clear on this.

Another day, another black man murdered by police in the States
at 18:32 27 May 2020

It does - the long term historic totals are around the 600-800 per year level with the percentages as my previous post in terms of racial,background. Overall about 60% of the total are attributed to homicide by the police and after that it’s a myriad of reasons (next most common is intoxication at about 10%). Doesn’t differentiate in terms of reasons between the races.

Oh bl**dy he’ll I’m going to have to find it again now. I will do but it was 42% white, 32% black and about 20% Hispanic. So proportionately higher among blacks no doubt but still numerically less. EDIT Dept of Justice Bureau stats

Well as more whites are still killed in custody each year than blacks by the us police, he’d be right.

Rob Smyth taking a fresh look at England - Argentina on 98 is excellent

The decision to exclude him certainly nearly finished him although you can't lay the consequences at Hoddle's door of course. Mind you with ET to play having the option to bring him on instead of Lee or Batty could well have had a difference. It was all very odd, they made him play more of the warm up games than anyone else to prove his fitness, played very well in one of them as i recall, and then dropped him anyway.

Lambert sacking
at 15:18 21 May 2020

spend any cash he's got now on a worthwhile footballing chief exec rather than sacking Lambert. Then hopefully that person might have enough nous to get rid of Lambert, and more importantly make the right appointment of the next manager.

So Posh co-owner suggesting 8-team playoff WOULD involve us
at 11:12 19 May 2020

this is barmy, if they are going to do any sort of play offs across the divisions they should start in the prem and get the bottom 3 to play off against the top 3 in the championship for a premier place next season (championship teams at home in a one off game) and so on with the other divisions.

What are people celebrating today
at 11:34 8 May 2020

My grandfather was in North Africa and Sicily/Italy with the RAF (AA) but never said a word about it. Had malaria at the end of the war and was in the RAF hospital at Ely for 6 months afterwards. His father was killed at messines in 1917. The other grandfather was in the home guard and on the Somme in WWI at age 15. Must look into any historical information there might be one day.

An often asked question. In terms of any official ceremonies etc I did wonder whether they would do that this year. The Americans mark it on the surrender which actually wasn’t until the start of September

European countries all have liberation day celebrations and this is our equivalent really. It’s a celebration of the end of the war not the war itself. Anyway it’s all pretty muted and usually only on particular milestones now like like 5 or ten year anniversaries. To be honest people are just looking for any sort of celebration at the moment.

Oh it dwarfed the western fronts, the soviets alone lost 10m military casualties which was twice the German total on all fronts, largely due to repeated and enormous encirclements throughout. The break off of hostilities with japan allowed the soviets to throw millions of more fresh troops plus tanks at the hun.
