Little surprise given how low the poll ratings are but still a whiff of media manipulation you hope not to get downwind of in a civilised society:

Hector Bellerin - model footballer ?
at 09:33 18 Feb 2024

Interesting mid-length read on the BBC website yesterday:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/68286028

'Now he takes a keen interest in Betis' Forever Green initiative, a project that over the past three years has helped them become La Liga's greenest club - among its many measures has been introducing electric bikes and scooters for employees.

"For me, sustainability has always been a big thing," explains Bellerin, who is also a shareholder at Forest Green Rovers.'

'On a personal level, Bellerin bikes to work from his home in central Seville, recycles, follows a vegan diet, uses public transport and carefully researches any purchases. One of the "greener" things he encourages most, however, is to vote.'

'Bellerin is challenging football's governing bodies to think smarter - fewer flights, not using new shirts every game and producing less waste, for example

"In almost every country in Europe we could travel on the train," he explains.

"With Arsene Wenger [at Arsenal], every time we had to go to Manchester or Liverpool we used to travel on the train and those are very simple and cleaner options."

He says change needs to be organic, but is also critical of expanding tournaments and hosting World Cups across multiple countries and continents. Not just because of the environmental impact, but also the strain it puts on fans.'

Leicester v Ipswich starting at 22:00 here in Windhoek, here's hoping the signal improves enough so that I can see it, otherwise it's Mozambique v Ghana on channel 202 for me.

I've been watching some African Cup of Nations games
at 06:33 20 Jan 2024

Was very impressed with the sharpness of Yousuf En-Nesyri as he tucked away Morocco's third against Tanzania, so I looked him up on Wikipedia. Only 26, spent all his professional career in La Liga, only a year and a bit left on his contract.

And Sevilla paid twenty million for him.

We can afford that, can't we?

Ipswich Wanderers was a good afternoon out yesterday
at 09:26 24 Dec 2023

My first time at The Doucy and nice to meet Hoppy and ITFC_Forever. Shame about the result but a much tighter contest than the Sky game on TV at lunchtime. Official attendance 232 I was told but they were louder than Churchmans. And as predicted, when I commented on the unfairness of the last booking of the match, the not one but three refereeing assessors in the posh seats behind me told me I was wrong.

Impressed by the portable turnstile at the entrance...but it could do with a lick of paint...
