Wow Thrillo, someone has really got it in for you. First you get relegated from Happy League Premier and then Covid. Not sure what is worse. You have all my thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery...for both. All the best mate.
I believe there will no be "wickets" down but "OUTS". Does that mean runs will become "STRIKES"? Thank goodness normal cricket will be going on at the same time. Any bets that the 100 will have limited shelf life? I really hope so.
Tommy Smith eh. Hope he can come even close to emulating THE only real Tommy Smith, ex Liverpool of whom his manager Bill Shankly once said of him: "Tommy Smith wasn't born, he was quarried". That's what we need in our team. Hope it goes well for him. Am really looking forward to the new season; it can only be better than last season...can't it?
Can't help thinking that bringing on two "specialist" penalty takers within seconds of the end of a gut wrenching 120 minutes was not the manager's wisest decision of the tournament. They had absolutely no chance of feeling part of the game or of getting up to speed for what was about to happen. Should have introduced them halt time of extra time or not at all. Where were all the supposed senior players hiding? Both Kane and Maguire came to the front, why not others ? Little annoyed with Gareth especially for what it will do to young Sako in the coming months / years. I might just add that the best team won.
My point entirely. He will either be "resting" or involved in transfer talks. I suspect when he heard of this fixture he decided he would have to move on as there is no way he would breach our new defence!
