What’s wrong with Aeroflot Private ? Flew with them to Moscow last year thought it was quite a decent plane.


Maybe things have improved.
There may still be a site called 'Will I Die'.
The chances of an Areoflot flight falling out of the skies was pretty small but much greater than the other airlines.
If such a site still exists I suspect Malaysian Airlines will be right up there as well now unfortunately.
Point taken though but I still think Ruskie H and S is not what it should be and sadly standards over here are plummeting to meet them.

Temporary stand at Ekaterinburg Arena has been completed for World Cup.

Any football fans with a nervous disposition about heights had better look away now. The enormous 45 metre high temporary stand at the World Cup stadium in Ekaterinburg has finally been completed.

I bet that Spiderman chappy from Paris would be up that in less than a minute, Allez!
I will be barracking for the Aussies, as usual they will be expected to fold, but I think there's a surprise in them, not the most skilful team but will not lack the effort.

France at 13/2 will do for me although you can get 7/1 on smarkets exchange but hardly any liquidity.But worth it if you just want a small fun bet.

I agree the stadiums as a whole look amazing. The one with the tempoarary seating aside. The good thing about it is they have made sure the stands are close to the pitch in most of the stadiums. The Stadium in Moscow has had an unbelievable amount of redevelopment and work done on it. If you remember the last major match on it was the Champions League Final between Chelsea and Man U. It had the running track around it, now it has been reconstructed using the old shell of the Stadium.

Judging by how corrupt FIFA is historically, the next few World Cups will be in...

2022- Serbia (after President of FIFA is threatened by Slavic hitmen)
2026- Antarctica (-30 degrees Centigrade- No problemo)
2030- Pitcairn Island ( after a massive discovery of petrochemicals)

Just watched Oz beating Czech 4-0, just running rule over players that Swans may fancy, Andrew Nabout, keep an eye on his guy has an eye for goal.
Right back Risdon, hell of a engine on him, fair play Oz coach BVM got them playing as a team, still believe upset is coming a la Iceland.

Due to the distance it would be better to keep Australian players in Asia.
It is a commercial world and would not be happy with Swansea franchise taking an interest.
Thw clubs current set up is unstable and until such time that the Trust hit the owners for six best to keep the better players in an environment less toxic.

I'm going for France. Frightening looking squad, and to think they have left out Lacazette and Benzema tells you the quality they have. The Erics won't be far behind, Brazil look ok but nowhere near what they were once, Argentine - shite back 4 and struggled to qualify.

Thank you, goodnight and bollocks
