Great Ipswich area feel-good story

This is some achievement by a young man hit hard by a life-changing condition during his GCSE year.

On journalistic ethics in the post-Brexit/fake news world.

Full disclosure: it's mostly about Brexit.

WTF News Story of the Week...
at 08:38 5 Aug 2018

Back in the Nineties, this would have been WTF News Story of the Year, but in the current crazy world, who knows what will happen next week?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-45074380

Putin has made Actor Steven Seagal Russia's Special Envoy to the USA.

Seagal was made a Russian citizen in 2016.

WTF?

What might have been...

I said when he was injured during the run-in that Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury could cost Liverpool the Champions League and would hurt England in the World Cup.

He was in fantastic form last season, and I think his dribbling ability and his slide-rule passing into the path of attackers' runs could have made a real difference.

There are loads of "what ifs?" that we could dwell on this morning, my point is that England can immediately strengthen the team who reached a World Cup Semi Final.

I think that is the best possible outcome for England
at 01:31 8 Jul 2018

From the other Quarter Final.

I would be very worried about the pressure on the Referee in a Semi Final in Moscow, against Russia, and the effect of the crowd on our players. It would have been incredibly intense. And with the Novichok thing kicking off again, not a good time to play them.

I believe Croatia to be the better team, but going to Extra Time, and unconvincing penalties, with lots of players either struggling with cramp or niggly injuries, will have knocked them. A bit like when a boxer struggles to a win but takes a lot of heavy punches: it takes it out of them for next time.

They had loads of players on a yellow going into the game, including Rakatic and Mandzukic. Obviously them getting another and being suspended would have been perfect, but we can't be greedy!

If there was a Harry Kane equivalent

to the "Boring James Miller" twitter account, called "Prolific Harry Kane" then I'm sure the tweet right now would be something like:

EXTRA TIME! Brilliant! Another 30 minutes play to get more goals! #goldenboot

Odds on Argentina finishing with 11 players?
at 16:24 30 Jun 2018

Seemed to already be very niggly and hyped before the equaliser, let alone the 3-2 goal. The ref could have shown straight reds already in my opinion.

I think there will be a big melee and at least one punch thrown before this is out!
