Re: Sam Yawayawa

No problem - will try. 1. Player getting yellow carded - quite rare I think, at this level, and puts the side under a great deal of pressure. One minute is a long time in sevens. 2. Player knocking on when taking a free kick, whilst in an attacking position. However my comment was based on an overal...

Re: Sam Yawayawa

I only watched the game v Newcastle, and I thought that the team was very poor, and nowhere near the standard I would have expected.

Very poor results - very unimpressive.

France v Scotland 6 Nations - tickets

I have received an email from the French Federation with details of how to buy up to 5 tickets for the match between France and Scotland on Sunday 12th February 2017, at the Stade de France. This is the website where you will (should) be able to buy on line, and print your tickets nearer the date. T...

Re: They've only gone and done it!

In my younger days, as a season ticket holder in the Spion Kop, I never had any hopes for City, save staying in Division 1, and giving everyone a good game. Mostly these modest ambitions were met. My biggest fear was that Spurs, who ruined my first FA Cup Final, by doing the double, in 1961, would p...

Re: A bit of perspective

1) They are not machines. Well we won't disagree on that. However what that has to do with an inability to handle the ball properly escapes me. These people are professionals - the basics ought to be second nature. 2) It may have had something to do with the opposition. Not being able to catch the ...

Re: A bit of perspective

We can win games of this magnitude because we believe that we can. We would have won on Sunday with only half the ambition and four times the improvement in quality of execution (basic skills). Why professionals of such standing have to be coached inecessantly in basic handling skills is frankly bey...

Re: Racing Metro Paris at Nottingham

Just to put it into context, my neighbour considers all English Referees as biased against the French, and he makes no distinction between English, Welsh, Irish or Scottish - as far as he is concerned, if they speak English, they are English, and by definition, biased. This worldly view was taught t...

Re: Job Marler racially abusing a Welsh player? No Sanction

So when is something racist/offensive and when is it not?? This is my problem, in a nutshell. I grew up in different times, admittedly, and to be fair, we called all sorts of people by various names - it was the way it was, but we didn't mean any harm. For me, discriminatory behaviour, be it on gro...

Re: Job Marler racially abusing a Welsh player? No Sanction

The other day I called a spade a spade. The spade knew he was a spade, but the fork alongside took exception to my remark. The spade said that in fact that he didn’t mind being called a spade, but the fork took no notice whatsoever of his views and sought the opinion of a higher authority. The highe...
