|Bob Beaman, Michael Johnson, Usain Bolt, Shane Long|
at 23:49 23 Apr 2019
Beaman took the long jump world record from 8.35m to 8.90m.
Johnson took the 200m from 19.66s to 19.32s.
Bolt took the 100m from 9.69s to 9.58s.
Shane Long has surpassed them all. 9.82s to 7.69s. No one is ever going to beat that!
|VAR is rubbish|
at 11:13 18 Apr 2019
Technically, with the benefit of a replay and a computer generated line on the screen, Aguero was offside for that winning goal last night but why is VAR even looking at a decision as marginal as that?
When it was first suggested, VAR was meant to be there for when the officials had made an absolute howler. But that 'offside' was marginal at best and, to the extent that Aguero was running into an onside position as the ball was in the air, I cannot see that he got any unfair advantage over the defenders at all. And he and Sterling still had an awful lot to do to get the ball into the net.
To see that fantastic goal and the type of celebrations that we all go to football to experience being scrubbed out but some geeks in a room full of tellies, leaves me cold.
|Half time entertainment|
at 08:49 10 Mar 2019
Have to assume that yesterday’s turnaround was at least partly down to the new half time ‘entertainment’.
The ‘whose got the fastest shot’ between two blokes who could barely kick the ball was excellent, but the way that ‘saintsmobile’ drove the entire length of the pitch and then disappeared into the stands again was truly inspirational.
|Here we are again!...|
at 10:10 28 Feb 2019
Last season with 10 games to go, we also had 27 points.
Next 5 went DLLLL
So if we can pick up more than a point from the next 5 we will be doing better than last season!
I'm optimistic. Ralph 10x better than Hughes.
|Interesting relegation odds|
at 10:08 1 Feb 2019
We're on the same points are Burnley and yet BetFair have saints at 13-1 to go down and Burnley at 2-1.
The bottom three are all currently odds on to drop and if the Burnley odds look a bit mean, you could take 1-4 for them to stay up (Saint are 1-40!).
An interesting bet would be Brighton to go down. Only three points about us and having lost the last three, they are still at 22-1.
Anyway, looks like the bookies have faith in Ralph too.
|Is Lemina any good?...|

Serious question, and not entirely motivated by disappointment at tonight’s performance.
