  1. The mental thing is the dozens of Tory journalists, including many women, criticising the neighbours for listening to the argument and calling the police. If neighbours didn't call the police when they heard shouting and banging, and couldn't get an answer at the door, then domestic violence would be almost impossible to discover. They're essentially saying that investigating potential domestic violence is a breach of privacy.

  2. It's definitely not enough to be considered an "assault" and if it was a man there wouldn't be much of a fuss made about it. I don't think anyone actually thinks it's actually as horrific as they're making out, both sides are disingenuous with their outrage when it comes to anything that happens to desperately make the other side look bad. This is why politics is shit.

  3. Squatting is the king of leg lifts and with good form it doesn't load up the knee. I'm currently studying fitness at uni, and training at uni 3 days a week. I'm also at my local gym 3 days a week for between an hour and 2 hours a session.

  7. PSG were getting played like they did in The de Jong deal, I do not think intelligent people who want to succeed in footballer would ever go to PSG unless they were at the end of their career.

  8. That's because the stewards missed the fact that Vips gave the position back before he was given the penalty. Once they realised that, they cancelled the penalty and rightly so. Or maybe his team submitted Chandhok's Sky analysis video as overwhelming evidence to the stewards

  12. I've lost 2 fish and caught 2, with nobody else on the lake(5 people) catching anything yet, although 2 people lost 1 each in the weed. The weights of my 2 fish were 15lb 14 oz and 14lb, I wouldn't mind 1 of the bigger ones, but they will do. I'm not doing too bad considering how the fish are currently spawning. @Teso dos Bichos

  13. "El Flaco" Menotti Pulls No Punches "Not even with Cruyff or Guardiola would this Argentina achieve anything" The legendary Argentinian football figure of César Luis Menotti is always listened to, he's never ignored, what he says is taken on board and seen as words of wisdom. In an interview yesterday Menotti pulled no punches but then again it's not the first time he's said things like these in recent years and has warned time and time again of the over valuing of players due to modern football products associated to some of the names available to the squad that have nothing whatsoever to do with the requirements of football and the ethos behind a sentiment that is the catalyst to victory. "Every country has a culture and that culture is part of what identitifes that country. Football is the same! Every nationa that has a football culture, also has a fundamental basis to the understanding the football bases itself on within that country historically." "I'm not going to dance around the carousel of this or that with what's always being said. Argentina have the poorest pool of players in its history because there are very overvalued players there, players that come with a status from where they play instead of what they really do. Players that play within an ethos at clubs where they're surrounded by cogs that fit the pieces of the machinery... Talent isn't enough, but it's necessary to distinguish the finer moments which decide the whole story of a game and a tournament." "Messi aside who is special, and with an immense and unnatural weight on his shoulders that reproduces everything negative Argentinian culture has. He is the best player in the world, possibly the greatest player of all time but everything else is just a bit of this and a bit of that." "Not even with Cruyff or Guardiola would anything of note be able to be achieved with this Argentina. The parts to the machinery aren't there because the only thing people can do is quote names of footballers playing within sides that function. Argentina can win, even now, but it wouldn't mean a thing even if that minor miracle were to occur due to the fact that it would be based on other poor sides failing around them. Imposing one's self is where merit is giving, not speculating to a final moment of glory because deep down you're left with the question, now what? Where do we go on from here!" "It's not about coaching, it's all about an ethos! Build around that and then add something unique like Messi and you have history in the making. I've said it a million times before that Maradona did not win the World Cup in 1986 on his own because what was taken to Mexico worked and then something celestial like Diego was added. We have the celestial now but there is no foundation to the paper on which to ask the architect to design around that belief."

  14. I don't know if I've ever touched on it before or not, but it seems from your comment, I haven't because I know you're one to go out straight to study something and inform yourself. But anyway... Summer football tournaments have always been somthing quite a bit special and different in Spain. Every country has them so it's nothing new. But in Spain they used to be seen as something important and there were specifically two that were the greatest of them all (infact those two are still the most important by miles even when they've lost the mystique they once had) and they aren't organised by the clubs most would expect. The most important one was and continues to be the one organised by Cádiz CF and the Troféo Ramón de Carranza The next most important one is the tournament orgnaised by Deportivo La Coruña and the Troféo Terésa Herrera These days summer football tournaments in Spain have at most cult followings and their history is just the folklore told by those that remember the hugeness that they once represented as a football festival that would conjure up a week of carnival spirit similar to a World Cup with the greatest players on earth visiting your twon and being seen in the streets. Today these types of things like the Emirates Cup which we have in London are referred as pre-season tournaments and of very little significance if any at all. But back in the day these things were no pre-season friendly events used to generate renevue for the club. They were AFTER the pre-season and the first big test that clubs, coaches and players would take seriously. Being invited to one of the two premium tournaments in the shape of the Ramón de Carranza or the Teresa Herrera was an honour for a club anywhere in the world and would be used as a showpiece. These days the very few that continue to exist in Spain are played as one off games and not 8 or 10 clubs involved so as to keep the tradition of the annual event alive. The Joan Gamper organised by FC Barcelona was one of the biggies but nowhere near the prestige of the aforementioned tournaments organised by Cádiz CF and Deportivo La Coruña respectively. I remember reading this book (above) on the history and downfall of the mythical summer football tournaments that would move travelling fanbases from the other side of the world for a whole week. It basically tells the story of the fall of real football to be honest which is quite sad.

  17. Tempted to do a “Graham Potter Challenge” and go to the lowest level of a European league with the long-term intention of securing a job in the Premier League. Tempted to mix it up a little bit and put myself as a Sunday League Footballer, though that’s not quite sticking to Potter’s story.
