I seem to be getting two or three of these a day at the moment. They're not even bothering to make them look convincing, just some random gibberish and a link.

I'm beginning to quite like Ben Wallace

The UK Secretary of State for Defence. Everything I've seen that he's said on the Afghanistan situation has been eminently sensible, realistic and free from waffle or hyperbole.

Also not overexaggerating our strength or influence at this moment: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/24/taliban-could-close-kabul-airport-

Two observations about last night:
at 09:35 18 Aug 2021

1) Those blasted long throw-ins. It's like facing a corner every five minutes.

2) We have some astonishingly talented players, able to skip past whole bunches of defenders and still retain the ball, get it to a team-mate, or win a free kick.

Afghanistan
at 07:22 13 Aug 2021

The situation is turning into a dreadful shambles. But should surprise nobody.

The US (and UK) have for two decades been propping up a partisan and fantastically corrupt regime far more interested in lining their own pockets than providing good government for the country. As a result, there isn't even the semblance of national unity - or an effective military, for all the money that's been invested in trying to create one.

It was always a house of cards, ready to collapse unless we continued to pour in our own treasure and lives. The moment we pull out, it has done so. Whether hasty or slow, the end result would have been the same.

Again, much suffering has been caused by an unwillingness to heed the lessons of history. Of the Soviet occupation, or the British efforts in the 19th century. Indeed of their own internal history. Afghanistan is a notoriously difficult place to control.

Cheltenham Away - useful info
at 15:42 11 Aug 2021

Living in the town and inspired by a question from OsborneOneNil, here is some useful info about beer, food, parking and travel access for next Tuesday's game:

There are nowadays no pubs particularly near to the ground, so food and drink are best obtained in town. Closest pub is probably the Sudeley Arms, quite small. The Cotswold was one of my regular haunts (pre-Covid) and is also not too far. Or the Hewlett Arms, on the other side.

Loads of good places to eat up in the hills around Cheltenham, too, e.g. the Golden Heart at Nettleton Bottom, the Craven Arms at Brockhampton. Or in Prestbury, on the north-easern side of Cheltenham (which is the right direction for the ground, but further out) - the Plough (excellent for beer), the Royal Oak or, slightly fancier, the Kings Arms*.

There are several car parks on (or just off) the northern section of the ring-road in the right direction for the ground, but they are about 10 minutes walk away. There is some parking on residential roads nearby, but may not be much space on a matchday evening.

Coming up the M5 from the south, there are roadworks on J11 of the M5, meaning you cannot turn right for Cheltenham. The diversion, I believe tries to take you off at J11A and then via the edge of Gloucester. Tho you could also come off at J11, turn west on the A40 and simply go all the way round the roundabout and back east on the A40 to Cheltenham.

The railway station is a fair distance from the town centre, in exactly the opposite direction to the football ground. Perhaps a 30 minute fairly brisk walk in total.


* Edit, my error pointed out by Cheltenham Blue.

With Osaka missing Wimbledon and now the US gymnast pulling
at 18:39 27 Jul 2021

out of competition at the Olympics citing mental health issues, is it the case that elite sports stars are nowadays being pushed so hard for perfection that it is more than the human mind and body can cope with? Especially when the frequency and intensity of not only competition, but also media scrutiny is taken into account. With an added layer of Covid bubbles and the restriction upon attendance by family and friends (their emotional support frameworks).
