Just watched the highlights from last night
at 15:56 20 Jul 2019

Some beautiful football and well-taken goals.

I think Jackson's second is a good finish as well as Norwood's.
James Bree

What is happening with him? Will Villa find another Championship club to loan him to? Would he be too expensive for us to loan again this season? He did OK didn't he and is versatile to play either full back role isn't he? They are not going to be using him in the Premier League are they?

Would he be an option? I assume from the gaps in the squad numbers Lambert is looking to bring in 3 more defenders or has he just left them empty because he doesn't want to give any of the younger players the impression they have made it to the first choice team?
Just read this about London Bridge terrorists

Makes me think how well the police did to get them and not innocent bystanders with all the confusion involved.

Never done jury service but I do wonder why it took 3.5 hours to come to the verdict.

EDIT: Forgot to add the link!

Record run chase

in World Cup never really threatened in the whole tournament.

Well done England. A cracking final.
Cars that have side spots instead of indicators
at 20:47 10 Jun 2019

Very annoying. Are indicators not a legal requirement any longer? Especially as the spots only come on as they start to turn (though probably many indicators did too).

Manoeuvre, signal, mirror has become simply manoeuvre. Not sure it is much more dangerous I suppose.
Sri Lanka making hard work of the Afghans

Looked like it could be a close finish until they took the last couple of wickets. Still not a particularly challenging ask if two batsman can stay in.

Came as an interpreter for Adrian Paz courtesy of his Italian passport didn't he? Would never have got a work permit at that stage of his career. In a post-Brexit world we would never have been able to sign him would we?
Trump on BoJo
at 13:26 2 Jun 2019

“I like him. I have always liked him. I don’t know that he is going to be chosen, but I think he is a very good guy, a very talented person. He has been very positive about me and our country.”

Says it all really. What matters to Trump is purely self interest and what is good for America.

EDIT: Just to make it clear for any late comers to the thread. The issue here is why should we get into bed with the US instead of remaining at the centre of the EU?

When you "get up to something" ...
at 17:57 31 May 2019

do you wake up, log on and find it has already happened?

Or do you spend time doing it yourself?

Perhaps if Phil took the latter definition and told us all what he actually thinks of us his problem would be solved.

Not a genuine suggestion, Phil, however tempting it may seem.
An interesting across the pond view of the EU results
at 09:49 28 May 2019

This bit was notable:

Mr Farage campaigned on Britain leaving by the end of October, with or without a withdrawal deal. But that will be up to Britain's national government, where the Brexit Party has no seats.

EDIT: oops, forgot the link!

Absolutely disgraceful
at 18:11 22 May 2019

Rather than accept the evidence and change, ignore it, complain about it and carry on.
This milkshake thing is wrong
at 21:12 20 May 2019

I don't like Farage or Yaxley-Lennon, but here is why it is wrong:

We all have political views we disagree with but assaulting people for holding them does not encourage democracy;

It will engender further support from those who will see this as an attack on them - a kind of siege mentality.

I post this hesitantly knowing I might get upvotes from Pickles, Grimboy and co!

"If we don't believe in freedom of speech for those we despise; we don't believe in it at all" Noam Chomsky. However, I do believe there are rightly limits that make hate speech and incitement to terror illegal.
Great keeping from Butler
at 17:20 19 May 2019

but how do they decide it is a run out and not a stumping? At what point does it change from one to the other?
Police decided penalties will be taken in front of Charlton fans ...
at 22:25 17 May 2019

for safety reasons.

Not sure I would be very happy with that if I was a Doncaster fan etc.

Why are the away fans any more likely to cause trouble?
Anyone not want Villa to win the final? (n/t)

Just wow.

Squad for next season
at 16:53 5 May 2019


Bart, Gerken, Wright

Donacien, Chambers, Nsiala, Nydam, Emmanuel, Kenlock, Woolfenden

Edwards, Skuse, Nolan, Judge, Dozzell, Bishop, D Rowe, Roberts, Downes, El Mizouni, Huws (is he due to be fit at some point?)

Jackson, Harrison, Sears (out until Christmas isn't he?), Lankester (will he back for the start of the season?), Ben Morris and Folami (when will they be back from injury?)

Has Dawkins got another year or is his deal up in the summer? I think Ward's contract is up isn't it (and he is injured into next season too isn't he?)?

We clearly need another striker at least. There are a lot of bodies but can we find a consistent team out of them?
5 red cards this season
at 16:27 5 May 2019

What is the most we have had in one season.

Seems like we had a few harsh ones (although none have been over-turned).
Willey lucky to escape injury in the cricket

A cover gave way under his foot in his bowling run up.
