Rapid Forward Closing Down
at 22:25 25 Jan 2019

I have always enjoyed watching forwards rapidly closing down the keeper and defenders of opposing teams. It is a tactic that seems to be haphazardly deployed in today's game.

Seeing a keeper slice a hastily passed back ball horizontally into a crowd because of opposition pressure has always been a thing of beauty. Why don't more managers insist on rapid closing down?

Lingard did it quite brilliantly this evening against Arsenal.

Classic Ripping Yarn- The Testing of Eric Olthwaite

Soton v Derby VAR decision
at 20:56 16 Jan 2019

Goal disallowed for Derby against Southampton in the first half via VAR because of obvious off side. However, nearly all the pundits decry it as a travesty of a decision,and absolutely panning VAR. Anyone else see it? I thought it was clear cut, or am I half cut?

Internet advertising FFS!
at 19:12 14 Dec 2018

I Googled Camper Pelotas and Doc Martens 1461 on line a few nights ago as I am in the market for a new pair of shoes soon. All very informative.

However, since then, whenever I open a new page on anything from Planet Swans, to the Huffington Post, You Tube or Feltching & Dogging News I am bombarded by ads on sodding Camper Pelotas and DM shoes.

Are these companies just desperate, or should their Marketing Executives just kill themselves a la Bill Hicks?

BBC Xmas Line-Up

Is this the most underwhelming line-up ever?

Seriously....Mrs Brown's Boys is the visual version of fingernails scratching down a blackboard.

No wonder Netflix is so big these days. They can afford to produce the content people want to see.

Last 24 hrs...May v Cameron
at 21:24 15 Nov 2018

May.. Not much sleep at all. Accept resignations of various people whilst staying bullish about agreement worked on solidly for several days ( without sleeping much). Fielded 3 hrs of questions solid in Commons. Had a cuppa and a piss somewhere in all that. Spoke to lots of world leaders, including Trump. This is my lot.

Cameron..Woke up pre 10 am. ( Wah hay!) Sam downstairs making brekkie, so had a quick tug, thinking about Oxford Undergrad days. Awesome "Homes under the Hammer". That prompted me to call Jacques at Coutts. Apparently portfolio doing "quite nicely thank-you".
Spent afternoon in gypsy caravan writing memoirs whilst doing Telegraph crossword. Had help collect kids from school so Sam and I could have spot of evening "tiffin". Busy day,. Phew!

So the Bank of England want public nominations for a scientist to adorn the new plastic £50 note.

Enter your nominations here:-

I went for Stephen Hawking. Bit obvious but at least relevant. They will probably select some petticoated Victorian lass I've never heard of because of gender imbalance.

...she was really knowledgeable about SCFC, and in fact knew just as much, if not more than me about our illustrious club. Fair play to her. She wasn't on her own though as the article below suggests. She was with an equally enthusiastic Seattleite.

Glad she saw a good win.

Story on deg mess on playing pitches on BBC Wales news just now.
at 18:07 21 Oct 2018

Apparently there was a demonstration today in our esteemed capital city against Cardiff Council plans to introduce bans on dogs on playing pitches. As a former dog owner I loved letting my old Welshie off the lead to tear off and use up some energy, but only where I could keep an eye on him and what he did. That was never on playing pitches.

I wonder how many of the responsible dog owners today have had the pleasure of sliding through a steaming turd on a regular basis when trying to play a game Even worse a kid doing the same. These shits, and even the residue left behind after disposal is dangerous to health.

Even worse, in the same report, was some female SJW trying to swing the argument towards the idea that the ban was sexist as most players are male.
