African water - do something!

I daresay the current proliferation of adverts is a massive switch-off but honestly it would be so simple to save millions of lives. One of the odd things about the African conditions, heat, humidity and lack of vitamins in the soil is that diarrhea can be an absolute killer. My own daughter lost ha...

Re: The Morality of a Premiership Football Club . . .

Terry is a very good player, but a personal disgrace. And as I've said on previous threads, the crying shame is that his antics overshadow the absolute professionalism of the likes of Banks, Shilton, Beckham, Pearce, Shearer, Beardsley and many many more. Where are the managers? The likes of Matt Gi...

Re: World darts

The lesson is that sports like cricket and rugby should do the absolute maximum to expose themselves on free to air TV. Hiding sport on expensive channels like SKY and ESPN limits exposure to the unconverted.

Re: The media...... Dumb Britain.

I'm reminded of a previous gaff when the Boxing Day Tsunami was listed amongst a list of events due to climate change.

Therefore me driving my car made tectonic plates move?

Re: Soccer sinks to new low

I went to Brussels to see Anderlecht v Forest. Not a fixture that would normally attract bovver. But we were warned that our Forest contingent would be infiltrated by nutters from Utrecht in Holland who would cross the border into Belgium just to have a punch up with the Anderlecht fans. Sure enough...

Re: Soccer. There's always one idiot.

Shearer was a diver all right!

I was referring to his off the field antics where his behaviour was very good.

The media...... Dumb Britain.

Latest gaff. A respected BBC presenter commenting on the fact that Swedish women commit themselves to sport far more than us said "and this is despite the fact they get less daylight hours than us. Pick any spot on Earth and it gets EXACTLY the same daylight hours as anywhere else. Its distribution ...

Re: Soccer. There's always one idiot.

There are consumate professionals who have done football proud. People like Shearer and Pearce who never drank or misbehaved (well Shearer alledgely beat up a player who was drunk and disordely), Beckham and Shilton who throughout the height of their careers continued to train all afternoon with the...

Re: Soccer. There's always one idiot.

Ooh I picked the wrong spelling of threw. From what I know of FA procedures the pitch invader will be banned for life from all domestic games and will havehis passport confiscated before all England away games. Hanging the t*t is not within the FA'a powers. Given that Cantona was imprisoned for kick...

Re: Soccer. There's always one idiot.

I have second hand knowledge of Moyes and despite his scary Nookie Bear eyes I know that there is a little lad in his neighbourhood who is enoroursly cheered up my Moyes's unselfish attention. Not just money, although he's chucked in a fair amount of dosh, but genuine treats and support that only he...

Soccer. There's always one idiot.

Football showed it's rare good side yesterday with three cracking games yesterday with good football, no wining or diving, refreshingly honest and generous quotes from managers Moyes and Ferguson, and players toning down their celebrations after scoring against their former clubs. But every back pag...
