Following on from the Women's Football thread t'other day, BBC sport have added a video of all 28 (Twenty Eight) goals in a 28-0 win for Benfica Women as they made their debut in the league

I reckon those of us with Grandmothers would expect them to do a better job than their keeper (who I don't think dived to make a save all game)

What are peoples thoughts on the news today of Colin Kaepernick (among others) being used as the face of their new campaign.

Personally I really like/respect the bloke & what he's doing. Though it seems that the backlash in the states has happened already..

I think it's great of them to use Black athletes and Inspirational quotes in the current climate. My absolute favourite is Shaquem Griffin, that guy is a real inspiration.
Site Ads
at 14:41 28 Aug 2018

Is anyone else getting some rather odd pop up ads when on this site?

I am getting used to the silk boxers and ihavans cigar ads.. plus some others that I've been searching recently (Mobile phones, holidays etc.)

but i'm getting an increasing number of attractive women popping up from sites such as 'Ukrainian Charm' & 'Asian Charm' and something about beautiful Latina's etc. with some suggestive titles.

To quickly dispel any thoughts of shenanigans, this is on my work laptop which has never been used for anything unsavory. They filter it to stop anyone from accessing social media, ticket sites, shopping, gambling sites etc.. It sometimes even blocks this site so nothing to do with previous browser history.

Is anyone else seeing these ads? I'm also getting some from Boohoo and Missguided (among others) which I wouldn't pen as being regular retailers the users on here find themselves on...
Horses & Betting etc.
at 15:38 24 Aug 2018

I'm making a rare trip to the ponies this weekend and have noticed various threads on betting on here in the past so wanted to check if anyone had any tips for York tomorrow? Failing that which papers are the best to peruse for info?

England are on it again this morning... Or should that be Anderson is on it?

Unbelievable start with India only registering their first runs in the 4th over after Anderson took a wicket with 5 ball of the day.
46 Goals
at 09:26 10 Aug 2018

That is the number of goals that we need to replace this season with the players we have offloaded this summer (Our 5 Leading goalscorers from last season!)

Waghorn - 16
Garner - 10
McGoldrick - 8
Celina - 8
Connolly - 4

I've been impressed by the transfer activity this summer, but looking at it from a purely numbers perspective, or without bias.. it looks like we are in for a struggle. Personally I don't see it like that myself, but I've seen plenty of people make those sort of comments about other clubs (Norwich an example with Maddison & Murphy leaving)

For what it's worth I think we'll see a lot more goalscorers this season with goals being shared around a lot more than they have in years. Hopefully culminating in more than the 57 we got last season.
Callum Connolly
at 14:33 8 Aug 2018

Sky Sports reporting that he is about to sign on a season long loan for Wigan.

Will be interesting to see 1) What position they plan of playing him, and 2) How he gets on as he was terrific for us in spells last season and decent the rest of the time. Would be a useful addition to most sides in this league.

Team for Saturday
at 10:23 12 Jul 2018

Will I am sure look completely different to the one we saw last night. And I can agree that it probably should.

The likes of Henderson, Kane, Lingard, Sterling & Trippier have completely emptied the tank this tournament.. and Henderson in particular has had a long hard slog of a season, with his hoped being dashed late in the day on 2 separate occasions

I am sure that Gareth and his team will assess them on their psychological state in the next couple of days and decide on who he thinks is ready for one more battle and who is too emotionally raw after last night. After all there is very little time between the matches and physically there will be some tired legs, but perhaps most importantly there will be fried minds that are still coming to terms with the world cup dream coming to an end
University of Reading offering Scholarships to Refugees
at 11:16 5 Jul 2018

Planning to offer up to 14 scholarships to Refugees (presumed locally based)

They've taken a bit of heat because of it, but mainly because of their brilliant no nonsense response which I would applaud them for.

13 Reasons Why Season 2
at 16:54 26 Jun 2018

*No Spoilers here*

Finished the season at the weekend and not been able to shift it from my mind.. After a fairly average start, season 2 was equally as shocking and hard hitting as the 1st (for those who saw it)

I appreciate that it's a little bit too much 'High School Drama' for some people and can be easily frustrating but some very topical themes of mental health (among others) that are tackled and portrayed in a very tactful way.

Brilliant brilliant show and one that I think will affect an awful lot of people.

Any one been to see them yet this tour?

I'm going to see them tonight in Birmingham. Not too sure what to expect really, but hopefully will be a good show

Third ODI against Australia and batting 1st

I'm going to predict we get a total of 454 with Morgan getting a ton. Winning by 100+ runs
Credit Card question
at 11:36 31 May 2018

Apologies for a (probably) daft question, but a day or so of googling hasn't made it any clearer.

I am looking for a new credit card to transfer an existing balance from an other card as my introductory offer is expiring.

I have purchased X amount on my current card which will start charging interest next month.. If I transfer all my balance to a new card, do I need one with a low purchase rate or does it get lumped in with the overall amount.

In summary does purchased credit always remain 'purchased credit' or does it all become one amount once you transfer the balance?
"Past the end of the season.."
at 10:22 23 Apr 2018

How long is 'Past' in terms of days and weeks?

Can we assume that ME has eyes for a manager likely to be involved in the play offs? Or is that too much of an assumption.

I suppose the obvious caveat is that there will be a few managers who will leave their current roles at the end of the season, so may have a greater number of potentially interested parties to chose from in June than in April.
UEFA U17 Championships

"The Players will be gutted"
at 11:20 29 Mar 2018

A quote from John Wark on the BBC article

Interesting point really, when Chambo, Spence and Skuse have publicly backed him and Skuse even signing a new deal in recent weeks.

Always thought that there would be a few who would reconsider their town careers when Mick leaves, but will be interesting to see
1) how the players react in the remaining games, and
2) If there are increasing number of rumours linking our players away from the club as agents start to angle for moves in the summer
England Squad
at 14:09 15 Mar 2018

Some interesting call ups in there.. As well as some annoyingly undroppable names. I'm looking at you Joe Hart (as well as Henderson or Livermore - shouldn't be both of them)
