  1. Sam Bennett has signed for Deceuninck Quickstep from Bora Hangrohe and taken his lead out man, Shane Archbold, with him - https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/sam-bennett-signs-with-deceuninck-quickstep/. That's a great move for him as he won't have to fit his schedule around Peter Sagan's.
  2. Benik Afobe's 2 year old daughter tragically passed away on Friday - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50621941. RIP. He's out for the season with a knee injury too. What an awful time for him!
  3. Watford have sacked Quique Sanchez Flores - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50619972. A desperate move by a panicking board who have not invested in the squad. He was appointed after the transfer window closed and did not have a chance to bring in any players. ETA - Chris Hughton is rumoured to be his replacement. Doubt he could save them from relegation.
  4. Leicester's transfer record has been mixed over the last few seasons. They spent substantial fees and wages on players who are on loan or rarely get a game - Slimani, Iheanacho, Benkovic and Adrien Silva. Diabate, Gezzai and Kapustka are duds but did not cost much.
  5. Roberto Martinez reportedly wanted the Spurs job so he could be interested in the Arsenal job. He wouldn't be my choice. It's unlikely that Pochettino would take it so soon after leaving Spurs. Guardiola will not allow Arteta to leave. How about Steven Gerrard as an outside bet? The seethe in Govan would be glorious.
  6. Milner didn't test the goalie - hit it straight at him. Sums up Liverpool's first half - lots of effort, no end product. Napoli are the better team in all departments and deserve the lead.
  7. Liverpool are missing the attacking threat of Alexander-Arnold. Oxlade-Chamberlain would offer more threat than Milner in midfield..
  8. Remove all liquids and baste the skin all over. Lay in a wooden box, put on the lid and place in the oven. Turn up the oven to gas mark 8. Roast until fully done.
  9. My 7th hit of the year but he could have had the decency to hang on for another few days. ETA for the obligatory pun - he'll be Down Underground.
  10. I look forward to reading your account of your holiday in Somalia. 😎
  11. Nonsense! You were trying to be A smart arse over a mere 3 minutes. My post above proves that you are talking crap and I was factually correct. You were trying to deflect from the fact that Tierney was to match fit for his club. He chose not to play for his country and Clarke should have invoked the five day rule. Scotland should not select players that put club before country. They don't give 100% on the pitch when they do make themselves available. The team's performances and results have suffered. The likes of Bremner, Souness, Dalglish and Jordan never let us down. Tierney isn't in the same class and yet he wimped out like a spoilt wean.
  12. Why would you want to? It's a very dangerous country that has been ravaged by civil war. Read this - https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/somalia - "The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Somalia, including Somaliland except for the cities of Hargeisa and Berbera to which the FCO advise against all but essential travel. Any British nationals in areas of Somalia to which the FCO advise against all travel should leave. Any British nationals in Hargeisa or Berbera who are not on essential travel should leave." "Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Somalia. There is a high threat of kidnap throughout the country. Terrorist groups have made threats against westerners and those working for western organisations. There is a constant threat of terrorist attack in Mogadishu and terrorists continue to plan attacks against westerners in the rest of Somalia, including Somaliland. "
