This Villa fan has just posted this hot take on Mings
at 09:27 15 Oct 2019

I heard a few Villa fans at the start of the season say that Ming's was excellent value in today's market.

They are being proved very correct. He seems a lovely chap, deserves all the plaudits on and off the pitch. He was remarkably composed in last night's interview. An excellent role model.

Radcliffe's marathon record is gone
at 11:44 14 Oct 2019

I think Kipchonge is the greatest ever marathon runner. Does 160km weeks every week at altitude. At Monza it clearly showed it was doable with the gaming of 20 rotating pacers, laser guided zero emissions pacing cars on totally flat terrain at the optimum temperature with no jet lag. Also his fluids are measured and topped up by bike support. It's an interesting experiment but if he's not done it in a race an average person can enter or qualify for, to me it doesn't count.

Can't comment on the Radcliffe record but suspect it was well overdue a decent challenge.

Yeah. As you say it's been smashed too. Kipchonge yesterday too. I ran the Cologne marathon today. Safe to say I was well outside both these times.

There are dozens of venture capital Firms in Cambridge and London who will be really keen on this type of stuff.

Google them.

Probably more likely than one of these herbert's helping out.

EU audit €4.3B misspent last year
at 21:51 8 Oct 2019

This is standard audit extrapolation. Checking a sample of 1,000 payments and then extrapolating any errors across an entire population is a judgmental finding not a factual finding. It should be treated with respect as a valid finding conceptually and an area of control weakness but saying €4.3bn was misspent is not certain really true.

So not only do 9 out of 10 offences go unsolved
at 08:06 8 Oct 2019

Feels like they are lost in a cycle of denial. IOPC clearly not independent and hugely lacking in legal knowledge.

Knowing the usual rhetoric I suspect the answer will be more expensive reviews and another 'independent' body as opposed to just making people follow the law.

I am not sure what Barton said that was incorrect?
at 11:16 5 Oct 2019

I don't necessarily think it's untrue. It's just so mean spirited and unnecessary. We can't even enjoy a few wins after basically 20 years of decline according to him.

Barton: Probably as Bad as a Group of Players as Ipswich Have Had in a Long Time

By the same logic, he's the worst midfielder Man City have had in the last 15 years. Just churlish.

It seems the complaint was about Walker too. So not sure where you got your 'fact' from:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/media/2019/sep/30/bbc-racism-ro

The statements they both made are irrefutably reasonable and pretty much factual but I can see why they were initially deemed not impartial. As usual the BBC are the party that come out looking stupid by steadfastly refusing to back down and then reversing their decision.

Ultimately it relates to one complaint from the public. I bet 30 people have been in meetings for a month about this.
