  1. There’s an argument for handling on the line though, surely? With all the other scenarios there are several elements that could result in the attacker not actually scoring - anything from a dodgy bounce, a trip etc. With handling on the line, I can’t really think of how it wouldn’t be a definite goal without that action. Plus it’s one of the biggest acts of shithousery going.
  2. After the complete dogshit of the last two years I said as soon as The Vaccines released their tour dates I would be in. Booked for Leeds in April, then Tramlines announced they’re in. FFS.
  3. Change handball back to only being an offence if in the opinion of the referee it is deliberate. I don’t care if it hits a defender’s arm on the goal line if he has no idea about it. Similarly if a ball bounces up and hits a striker on the hand before he scores, as long as he doesn’t deliberately do it, I don’t care. Any talk of ‘un-natural positions’ to be a hanging offence.
  4. It’s a good job we don’t have a reputation for completely cocking things up…
  5. Get dicked 4-1 and stay 5th Classic pigs
  6. I think one of the worst aspects of this episode is that George Galloway has said something I agree with
  7. Because they’re thick as pigshit
  8. He’s not going to get a big pay out for this destroy & exit. Big Sam and the British Managers’ Lunch Club won’t be impressed.
  9. I thought early in the season he looked like he had a higher pedigree than League 1 but the team was unsettled and new. When Wing was recalled I said to a mate that I hoped it would give Byers a chance to step up, but I didn’t think he’d do this well. Fast becoming a favourite.
  10. Keeper was a foot off his line before the pen was taken While down to 10 Berge, who was on a yellow, deliberately stuck the nut on a Blackburn player. Ref saw it and just gave him a talking to. Spawniest gets going.
  11. No, absolutely not my thing but the wife is hooked on it so I assume it has something going for it. Enjoy
  12. The wife watches this. I occasionally catch a bit of an episode as I pass through the room, have to say what I have seen so far it looks like the absolute worst American schmaltz has to offer. I think it might be the background music that winds me up the most.
  13. Just about to start the last episode. I vaguely remember the story in the news, definitely having a read up after to check which bits have been embellished.
  14. More than 10 billion doses of Covid vaccines have been administered and about six in 10 people globally have had at least one. So there is a wealth of information. Like all medicines, Covid vaccines have potential side effects, but their safety profile is excellent. They have saved countless lives, prevented serious illness, and may also be protective against long Covid. These vaccines were developed in record time, but much of vaccine development usually surrounds funding delays. Scientists involved in the Covid vaccine trials, and the regulators who approved them, say no corners were cut on safety. Some rare side-effects did only show up once the jabs started being rolled out among millions of people, which is why regulators keep monitoring safety week by week. It is hard to know what more Novak Djokovic needs or wants to know. He says he doesn't have enough information about "the vaccine" as if there was just one Covid jab. There are many. As an elite athlete, he is at low risk from Covid. But not zero. He's had it twice, after all. He had his childhood vaccines when he had no say in the matter, so trying to claim he’s not anti vax because he had them is just ridiculous. It’s quite clear he’s anti vax.
  15. Fancy announcing you’re not anti-vax by saying you’re anti-vax. He doesn’t sound like the sharpest tool.
  16. The wife is coming to the end of treatment for her breast cancer and we have a trip to Corfu booked for May. Does anyone have any tips for getting travel insurance when there is a condition like this in the medical history? Any insurance companies more likely to provide cover etc? We will be getting the GHIC but we are hopeful of getting in our covid-cancelled Oz trip later this year.
  17. My word, that’s even worse than I remember. The way he casually steps over the ball after he’s eventually made his way back to leave Freedman with a tap in, then falls into the net to ensure he doesn’t accidentally get a block is just quintessential park defending.
  18. Was that Palace game the one where it absolutely tipped it down beforehand, leaving puddles and mud all over the pitch? I remember turning to my mate and saying “I hope no-one fannies about with back passes today, it’s asking for trouble”, followed almost instantly by Westwood fannying about with a back pass that got stuck in the mud and leading to a goal. Absolutely dreadful defender in an absolutely dreadful team. Difficult to work out who dragged who down.
  19. Be a shame if he got another injury
  20. Good to hear, hope they can wrap it all up. Nothing worse than a brilliant series going on too long imo.
  21. Do you mean the 2nd part of this one?
  22. It’s still gripping tv but it’s starting to get a bit “Prison Break” for me - every episode has a turn where it causes a situation that looks impossible to get out of, then they get out of it, only to cause another situation that looks impossible to get out, then they get out of it, only to cause…etc etc As long as this is the final series it will stay just the right side of not being ridiculous.
