Anybody else following this. My son has got me into it.

its developing into quite a series. GSW ravaged by injures, but Steph Curry delivering on the big occasion as he always does. Kawhi Leonard looking to see the Raptors home to history.

Stoke red card overturned
at 18:53 11 Apr 2019

First sending off overturned because it wasn't a goal scoring opportunity.

I haven't seen a,replay but from my view in the south stand, if he's not brought down, Dan is clean through on goal. No one is catching him.

Always enjoyed reading him in the Observer. He appreciated the aesthetic side of the game.

His football men documentary was a good watch, if a little pretentious.

Mascot Experience -

My lad is one of the mascots on boxing day.

So we will be arriving early and swapping our usual bovril in the south stand for some hospitality and hanging out with big nobs in the west

Does anybody who has experienced it have any hints and tips on how to get the most out of the day?

A great commentator and no mean cyclist in his day.

Introduced many, including me, to the TDF in the early days of channel 4 coverage and those epics races involving Roche, Lemond, Fignon, Delgado, Indurain.

At what age or ability level should a kid have to give up one sport for another?
at 14:42 10 Oct 2018

a talented kid I coach at grass roots under 10s is in his local ADC, one step down from full academy.

Wednesday he trains grassroots, Friday he trains ADC, Saturday plays grassroots and Sunday occasionally plays rugby at grass roots level. he's a decent rugby player, he can already place kick and drop kick over adults posts from the 22.

The amount he can play rugby is limited because the ADC sometimes arrange matches for Sunday including full academy trials. It seems obvious to me that these take precedence over grass roots rugby. However his grass roots rugby club take a different view and say unless he commits to most Sundays they wont play him and suggest he gives up rugby. eg he can play rugby this Sunday in a tournament but they've told him not to come.

If he was in the full academy he would not be allowed to play grass roots anything.

As a grass roots football coach I can sort of understand them needing commitment from kids, but equally if a 9 year old turns up with a pair of boots for a grass roots game of rugby on a Sunday I think he should be allowed to play.

what's the view of the Planet swans panel?

What is the best weekly programme for championship highlights.

Watched Sky's EFL championship goals and not surprisingly it only showed the goal and the penalty.

Is there anything better? I recall channel 5 doing something previously but can't find anything this weekend.

100 days remembered
at 13:46 8 Aug 2018

Nice to see the centenary of the battle of Amiens and the start of the 100 days offensive getting coverage. In the past its been rather overlooked compared to The Somme and Passchendaele.

There were more British casualties in 1918 than any other year of the war.

I hope in Wales we mark the centenary of this victory and particularly the role of the 38th Welsh at Villers-Outréaux in October in a similarly fitting way to the commemorations at Mametz wood in 2016 and Pilckem ridge last year.

Quoting wiki "During this action, the division suffered 1,290 casualties and took 380 prisoners. The divisional history noted that 8 October was "perhaps ... the stiffest fighting of the whole advance" - My grandfather was one of those casualties, wounded on 08/10/1918 , The German shrapnel and his limp stayed with him for the next 70 years.

Nordfeldt.

I'll admit I was genuinely worried having him as our first choice keeper.

Today I was more than happy with him.

His keeping is not in the same league as Fab or Vorm, but he was solid at the end when needed.

The most pleasing thing was his passing, and composure with the ball at his feet, which I trust is an indication of how we are going to play.

So personally I'm happy to accept the odd balls up if it means throughout the campaign, in the words of Brenda, we attack with 11.

Well done Kris and keep proving my fears unfounded.
