Londonderry or Derry?
at 22:24 15 Apr 2019

Article on BBC News just now about the killing of a teenager in Londonderry by a British soldier in 1972 referred to Londonderry as Derry three times without mentioning Londonderry at all. What is the official BBC strategy on this rather touchy topic?

Kilkenny will know I am sure.

I really hope it will not happen but the company has said it needs to close 50 out of 166 stores after they lost nearly 500 million quid last year.

For lovers of this pearl of a beach it is apparently being shown tonight at 7:30 on BBC4 in "National Treasures of Wales". So many happy memories there as a kid, and later in life to take my own girls there to see the dolphins off the headland.

Absolutely magic place. No wonder Rhod Morgan had the Welsh "Chequers" in the Caravan Park.

What is it with these Balkan, and Easter Europeans that they think it is OK to do this? Hope UEFA slap them with some sort of decent penalty like a points deduction, or home crowd ban for their next game minimum.

Real Madrid fans should be kissing Bale's feet?
at 22:30 4 Mar 2019

We all know Bale is a tidy footballer, playing for a club with a very demanding fan-base expecting him to replace the goal supplying genius that is Ronaldo, but should they really be expected to kiss his feet..? ...I don't think so.

Hope you will be munching on your raw leeks and doing some weird, made up folk dancing, whilst wearing a tweed waistcoat and a flat cap, like me later on. Used to love having the afternoon off school on St David's Day.

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.

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?
