Chris Packham
at 19:57 30 Jul 2021

There was a very touching programme on BBC2 the other night about Chris Packam retracing a walk from his childhood days along the Itchen from Eastleigh to Winchester. He talked about his battle with Aspergers and how having dogs saved his life when he thought of ending it as a young man. Mental health issues are all over the media at the moment and this programme brought home what some people have to deal with, in his case it has been a life long battle. He might not be everyone’s cup of tea but to achieve what he has done with his life despite his having to deal with autism is incredible. If you haven’t seen it I can thoroughly recommend it on Catch Up. It is called Chris Packham: The Walk That Made Me.

Croydon Tram Crash Inquest Result
at 19:00 22 Jul 2021

Feel gutted for the family, friends and loved ones of the victims. It sounds like it wasn’t well conducted and if I crash my car at over 3 times the proscribed limit for that section of travel then how can it be an accident? I hope they are successful in getting a new inquest.

Third Covid Wave
at 10:36 16 Jul 2021

Infection and hospital rates climbing rapidly. Death rates projected at 200 per day. Nearly 4m people at serious risk. New information coming out about the problems Covid cause the body if it doesn’t kill you. People laid up for the best part of a year with serious complications. Concern over the AstraZenica vaccine. Is it really wise to lift most of the restrictions on Monday? We have been told that we aren’t going back into another lockdown situation no matter what, but Whitty seems to think it might have to be on the cards.

The New Season
at 13:26 12 Jul 2021

Now that the Euros are over we can get back to worrying about our club. We seem to be making steady process in shipping out the dead wood but apart from replacing Bertrand and confirming Walcott’s stay, still awaiting news on some fresh signings. Hopefully there will be more news this week about incomings but the Williams move was said to be a done deal although no confirmation yet.
I guess the big question is though, will Ralph keep the same approach or will he employ new tactics?

Jimmy Gabriel RIP
at 09:16 11 Jul 2021

I am sure those of us at a certain age will remember Jimmy Gabriel fondly. He has passed away aged 80. I remember him hitting the bar from about 30 yards in a 1-0 defeat to Spurs at WHL. Always gave his all. RIP Jimmy.

England v Italy
at 16:55 9 Jul 2021

Personally I’d love Southgate to finally throw off the shackles and go toe to toe with Italy. It might throw them as they will be expecting us to line up defensively. It isn’t going to happen though and I’m expecting the same team to start. We haven't been tested that much so far in the competition at the back so it will be interesting to see how we hold up against the Italians. Overall we have looked strong defensively but there were signs against Denmark that our midfield defensive unit was breakable which makes me wonder if he might start off with Henderson now that he has got a bit of game time under his belt? Phillips has covered a lot of ground so far and you have to wonder how much more has he got in the tank, but Rice is usually the one to make way. Decisions decisions.

Didn’t make the team for the first game but has been one of the best players of the tournament since. He has survived a really bad injury and the man management techniques of the Special One to become the player we always knew he was with us.

Potentially our toughest test yet defensively I think. They have got their act together and are very strong going forward. They are starting to look tired though and I think we will have too much for them over the whole game.

Italy v Spain
at 09:16 6 Jul 2021

Form would indicate that Italy should beat Spain tonight and that would set up a cracking final assuming we beat Denmark. Spain aren’t at their best though but are still winning matches so can’t be written off easily. Our defence hasn’t been properly tested yet and on paper, Spain would probably be the most winnable match. Thoughts?

George Galloway
at 10:23 2 Jul 2021

Where do I start? What an idiot. He split the Labour vote and nearly let the Tories in. It is the division in the Labour Party that is helping keep the worst government in living history in power and Galloway needs to have a look at himself. He may reason that getting rid of Starmer is best for the party. No it isn’t. Getting elected and getting Johnson out is best for the party. Get that done first and worry about the Leader afterwards if it is that much of an issue for you. Andy Burnham was spot on in last night on Question Time. Support your leader, do what needs to be done to get elected first. Starmer is a forward thinking leader who understands that Labour need to be seen as a party of the 21st century, not stuck in the dark days of industrial strife of the last century. People like Galloway talk to those who are also rooted in the past. We don’t shove children up chimneys any more. The world has moved on. There are still contemporary issue to be dealt with which only a modern socialist party will tackle. Good to see Starmer tackle issues such as zero hour contracts etc but the Party need to get behind him and end this damaging in fighting.
Burnham talked a lot of sense last night. Local issues are becoming more important than ever before and that is where the battles need to be fought. Rejuvenation of High Streets, local jobs and infrastructure, health care, protection of arable land and the environment - these are all areas where opposition parties can come together and make a difference. This is where the likes of Galloway needs to be putting their energy, not tearing the party apart.

So Levy has been offered £100m in cash from Citeh or cash and a selection from 5 players. If I was one of those 5 players I wouldn’t be a happy bunny today.

Feel gutted for them. Put in a great performance first half and just like us, should have scored more when on top. Even though Belgium had a better spell in the second half Denmark were always in it and should have got something out of the game.
