The Hillsborough disaster happened 32 years ago. Perhaps the lies and distortions made by South Yorkshire Police only came to light once the enquires started but still, this was obvious. The report in the Guardian doesn't mention any charges against Bettison which I find astonishing. He left Sheffield to become the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire police and was then forced to resign.
The UK government has taken delivery of a second plane to add to the one they've already got. Johnson said "Not a problem. Rishi has promised to tax the poor to pay for it. I need a second plane 'cos the queen (richest woman in world) uses the other one."
It seems there was a bit of a fracas in Bristol on Sunday evening. Protestors objecting to the new Policing act were shouting "Kill the Bill". Seems some of them misunderstood what that meant and torched a police van and damaged 11 others. 20 officers injured - no record of how many protesters were injured. The unexpected thing from this was that the Police showed restraint and didn't pile in. They took a hands-off approach for the climate protests in 2019 when they agreed with the protestors which roads they could lie down in and obstruct traffic. When this new bill becomes law I suspect this approach will change.
I was just partaking in one of my fave wasting time exercises of clicking on articles referencing the Town and I came across a link to the "7 best creative midfielders of the last 40 years".
404, Sorry, page not found.
Being a Town fan can be trying at times. I expected Darren Currie, David McGoldrick, Arnold Muhren and Frans Thijssen had to be there but who else? Guess I'll never know the pundits opinion but these clickbaiters are the sort that include Lee Martin (FFS).
The sending off was on 70 mins. Frank Nouble was booked on 71 for kicking the ball away. Lambert is looking at his charts to see which formation to use. The lads say to each other "now's our chance while he's not looking" and equalize on 73. Lambert drops his charts, picks them up and we score again on 74. Lambert then decides on a negative formation and we hold on for the win. It's just a thought.
The Big 6 sees money not the joy of the game as the new model. The 2 main drivers are american - John Henry (Liverpool), Glazier (Man U) - so it's no surprise to me that the sport side is secondary.
One thing I picked up on was that a breakaway European Super League would be outside of FIFA so none of their players would be able to play for their national sides in the World cup or Euros. Nothing is agreed but you can see what they're thinking and I don't like it.
