Countries have been ranked by Forbes in order of intelligence. I don't know what criteria they've based their findings on.

The UK comes in at a more than respectable 8th most intelligent country in the whole, entire, planet, galaxy, and universe.

Why is that?

Explain this song
at 19:18 21 Dec 2020

The answer is probably simple and I'm being a thicky thicko.

Is it sung by religious people?

Is it an atheist anthem?

Is it mocking religion?

I like the tune, melody, but not knowing the sentiments of the song leave me confused.

Post Lockdown 2
at 06:14 18 Dec 2020

Lockdown 2 has finished.

I'm disappointed with the results: the high number of daily infections seems to be rising.

We haven't been able to get the death rate down low enough either.

All in all, not a success but may have kept something of a lid on things.

Yellow Cards
at 15:25 3 Dec 2020

There were, I think, 3 bookings on Tuesday evening against Portsmouth.

This is where we stand and what will happen:

5 yellows before 19 league matches are played results in a 1 match ban.
10 yellows before 37 league matches are played results in a 2 match ban.
15 yellows before the last day of the normal league playing season (not including play offs) results in a 3 match ban.
20 yellows before the last day of the normal league playing season (not including play offs) - the ban is determined by a panel.

As of today:-

Ekpiteta: 4 yellows
Kaikai: 3 yellows
Turton: 2 yellows
Robson: 2 yellows
Ballard: 1 yellow
Dougall: 1 yellow
Madine: 1 yellow
Yates: 1 yellow
Grétarsson: 1 yellow
Gabriel: 1 yellow
Ward: 1 yellow
Husband: 1 yellow
Maxwell: 1 yellow
Lubala: 1 yellow

We've played 14 matches and so, to get past the first hurdle, the 2 players most at risk - Ekpiteta and Kaikai - have to get through the next 5 matches. Ekpiteta without getting another yellow, whereas Kaikai has a bit of wiggle room and can afford 1 more.

Unless a match is either postponed or abandoned, Sunderland away on 22nd December will be our 19th league match.

A View From The Terraces

These are links to books, 2 books, by Steve Wilson.

I found them by accident on the internet.

They are a recollection of more than thirty years of watching professional sport (lots of Blackpool F.C.) across Britain and Europe. The memories cover more than a thousand games of Football, Rugby League, Cricket, Ice Hockey and Rugby Union.
