Anyone going to Clapton's Ginger Baker benefit gig at Hammersmith tomorrow?...all Cream and Blind Faith numbers. Clapton, Steve Winwood, Roger Waters, Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones, Nile Rogers (!) confirmed so far.
Could be a bit spesh...if you're into that kind of thing.

Excellent gallows humour at 3-0 - we've got the ball, we've lost the ball, we'll get it back etc etc.
Couple of points on the game, which Brentford fully deserved to win.
- i know i'm in minority, but despite a couple of quality performances at the beginning of the season, i'm still very unsure about Manning, he was getting overrun thought down that side in the first half and was often caught out of position.
- lummers must be benched for while now, it's embarrassing and not helping him at all, he's clearly got the yips now and it doesn't help the defence in front of him
- off day for many players - Eze was fairly anonymous, Cameron and Hall had poor games. Only Chair looked dangerous whenever he got the ball and Bright too to a lesser extent.
- The Brentford front three are utter quality.

We're both the seconded highest scorers and conceders in the league. If you're a neutral, you get down W12 pronto.

Kelly - some fine saves for sure, but god he does inspire confidence on the back pass, looks like a calamity is about to happen everytime.
Leistner was so frustrating tonight, passed back to Kelly so many times when the ball was crying out to go forward.
Special mention to the tw@t 50+ idiot who tried to start a fight in East Paddock at the end with a 14 year old. You're hard.

|VAR is a blight on our game|

Watford robbed yesterday and man yoo's goal should not have stood today. So something that was designed to eradicate controversy is actually creating it.
Seemlingly a huge proportion of goals being referred to VAR. Referees don't have to referee any more. Fans can't properly celebrate in the moment of joy when the ball hits the net because the immediate reaction is to see if it gets referred to VAR. It's also an irritating name.
i truly hate it.

Now that was a performance. Ireland were rusty to be sure (to be sure), but in the second half apart from their try, never got England's half.
There's half a chance of doing well in Japan you know. Semis? almost certainly. Finals? maybe. Winners? punchers chance on the day.
|Biggest con you've done|
at 21:32 7 Jul 2019
I about 13 just started a new school (a boarding one - don't judge me Bazza!).
We had outdoor PE on a freezing morning and i decided to bunk it so went to the school sick=bay and faked a stomach ache. The nurse prodded around my stomach area and i groaned and oohed at random points. She called for a doctor.
The doctor came to examine me. He prodded around my stomach area and i groaned and oohed at random points.
Then my mum was called to pick me up and drive me to hospital to have my appendix out. On the way there, tears welling in my eyes at the enormity of the situation i'd got myself into but i still didn't confess.
And so i had the operation and my appendix removed. Was off school for about 3 weeks. Single-most stupid thing i've ever done.
