  1. Only in for a couple of hours this morning then out to watch it in the pub with a couple of Spaniards who are starting early for their game tonight.
  2. All sorted for doing the last 100km of the Camino to Santiago de Compostela at end of June. Accommodation all booked en route and a few days on the coast afterwards. Also just booked a £14 ticket to london in mid July. Hopefully the UK government takes Spain off the amber list so I can get to London then Scotland and see my family for the first time in 18 months. All going well, I'll manage another holiday for a couple of weeks in August.
  3. Decent night of boxing last night with Donaire winning a world title for the 9th time and Haney beating Linares. Quite like to see Haney fight lopez next, don't know if he would cope with the power though. He dominated Linares for the first 9 rounds but was caught with a peach of a shot at the end of the 10th and hung on for the last 2 rounds.
  4. Aye, the John Fury interview is a good one. Pascal just been caught juicing with three different banned substances. Fight with Badou Jack off - Jack claims he knew after the first fight that Pascal was juicing.
  5. Rakitic has retired, brother. Modric, however, has had a fantastic season. Obviously the croats are a good side but they aren't exactly the side of two years ago. Vida and Loveren seriously lack pace at the back and they seem to have the Scotland problem at full back with 2 good left backs (Bradaric and Barasic) but not so much at right back - Vrsaljko was obviously top class but he has barely played in the last 3 years and looks a shadow of his pre injury self. When Trippier was banned this season, he was a nightmare for Atleti to the point of Simeone using youngsters and midfielders to play there instead. If he starts, Robertson and Tierney could have a lot of success down that flank.
  6. Weird from Enrique not taking the full 26 and it might seem like not as strong as Spain squads of years gone by but it is still a very good squad. I'd like to have seen them take Aspas and Canales. Saul another strange omission, he didnt have a great first half of the season but was excellent in the run in. A line up of: Simon Azpilicueta Pau Torres Laporte Alba Llorente Rodri Koke F. Torres Gerard Oyarzabal is pretty decent and gives plenty of scope to change it up from the bench with Pedri, Morata, Olmo, Thiago, etc. Knowing Enrique though, he will shove Marcos Llorente at RB, start Traore and they'll go out in the group stage. ETA: The omission of Hermoso is baffling too and not really being talked about - a ball playing centre half who can also play at left back that has been a vital part of the best defence in Spain this season. But then debate seems to be mostly about Ramos being left out.
  7. He has a mandatory against Catterall next, which would be the likely fight at the castle/easter road. I actually had Taylor winning a bit wider 115-111. Thought it was a very good performance but he made it a bit closer than it had to be with coasting the last couple.
  8. That was fucking brilliant. Pub that I was in was near silent after the Osasuna goal. Ball from Felix to Lodi was sensational. Same with Carrarsco setting up Suarez. Arms and legs everywhere in the pub. Hopefully Atleti finish the job next week.
  9. Some KO from Buatsi, awful mismatch tho. Yafai-Cunningham was a topper of a fight though. Great patter in the Charr-Lovejoy fight as well with Charr's celebratory cartwheel being one of the worst celebrations I've ever seen.
  10. 500th Atleti appearance for Koke tonight.
  11. Huge result that and an amazing game. Barca looked in total control at 2-0 as well. Fair play to Levante, always feel they should be doing better than they are. Some really good players in that side and you can't not like Morales. Barca should be out of it but wouldn't count anything out yet. Huge game for Atleti tomorrow night now.
  12. Video on twitter suggesting he is at least hitting the target in some areas.
