Olympic Sport you don't normally watch
at 15:17 25 Jul 2021

Our school was lucky enough to have really good sports facilities so sports day was always a big event. I used to play in goal for the handball, presumably because I used to be a goalkeeper for my junior football team but still can't throw to save my life. I really enjoyed it as well, it's arguably even harder than being a football goalkeeper though with the speed of the ball.

As for other sports, I like watching the hockey at the Olympics too.

Man Utd 4-1 down at QPR
at 20:51 24 Jul 2021

It’s Kane’s job to win fouls up the pitch and hold the ball up too. He was poor in the first two matches and wasn’t on form in the final but that isn’t one of the main reasons Italy won. Dykes was horrendous in that Czech game, had he converted his chances Scotland would have gone through. And for all his supposedly heroic efforts against England, neither team ever looked like scoring.

I’m sure once they get Fernandes, Sancho, Maguire and co back they’ll be fine but it’s still funny!

He was passable against England but horrendous throughout the rest of the tournament. If he had actually been able to control the ball and hadn’t missed a load of chances against the Czechs they’d probably have been in the second round. He did nothing against Croatia either. Who was worse than him? A few Turkish players maybe but besides that I can’t think of any.

Dozzell started the game and Lyndon Dykes, the worst player at the Euros, has scored 2. United team has a lot of absences but they still have a strong enough team out to be beating QPR - Lingard, Greenwood, Matic, James and Williams all involved

I was scrolling through some old episodes the other day and remembered Harry's team-by-team preview for the Championship a few years back on the podcast.

Is there any chance of bringing it back for this year? I know Harry's no longer on the podcast so I doubt it would be so in depth as I imagine it's very time consuming but some sort of League 1 preview/predictions show would be a nice listen if there's enough time to record it before the season starts. I wouldn't mind contributing in some way with the research either if that's any help.

Have we ever been at this stage of a pre season
at 12:21 24 Jul 2021

Our squad is still more settled than many of our potential promotion rivals. Sunderland, Oxford and Rotherham all have bigger gaps than we do.

Sunderland getting out their cheque book
at 19:12 23 Jul 2021

Their transfer strategy seems bizarre. I've not seen this bloke play, but their squad is threadbare at the moment so chucking loads of money at 1 player is questionable. Presumably a lot of their wage budget has been spent on getting Pritchard in and keeping McGeady too, even though they're massively lacking in defence and up front.

Slightly off topic but the number of people isolating shows how ridiculous it is to describe big chain owners like Tim Martin and Mike Ashley as "wealth creators." The pandemic has shown how much they rely on other people to obtain and maintain their extraordinary levels of wealth, and pay them sod all for the privilege.

Does anyone else fear a backlash if we start badly?
at 13:43 23 Jul 2021

I think the fixture list has been kind to us. I’d like to think we’ll have enough quality to beat the likes of Morecambe and Wimbledon in August while the team is gelling, and hopefully when we play the Sunderlands and the Charltons Cook will have moulded the team in the way he wants and we will be at full strength.

Kane to Man City for 160million
at 10:37 23 Jul 2021

I agree, but it depends who it is. If it’s someone like Ake or Mendy then fair enough as they’re unlikely to get in the City starting 11 and will still have the chance at winning some (albeit smaller) trophies at Spurs.

Kane to Man City for 160million
at 10:34 23 Jul 2021

It was reported back when Pep signed his new contract in the autumn that one of the conditions was that the Man City board would seriously pursue Kane. And as for the striker-less thing, Kane suits the false 9 role pretty well. He just needs fast wingers either side of him, which City have in Sterling and Torres.

Good player. Despite their off the field troubles, I fancy Wednesday to be strong.

Cummings interview
at 13:32 22 Jul 2021

We'll agree to disagree over whether the SNP are progressive, but if Labour/Lib Dems get more than the Tories (which is unlikely in 1 electoral cycle) they could form a minority government and if the SNP are as progressive as they claim they won't vote down left/centre-left economic policies. If they would be willing to bring down such an alliance and help the Tories out of desperation to break up an economic and political union then they would show themselves to be no better than UKIP. They'd have very little leverage in any negotiations in that scenario.

Well aware we're going off topic from the original thread so here's my view on that: Johnson and Cummings are both lying charlatans who should never have been allowed anywhere near the levers of power.
