Best players who never made it
at 22:38 20 Nov 2019

I’ve just looked up Saido Berahino. His first premier league goal was the winner at Old Trafford as a 20 year old. He got 19 league goals in his first two seasons, then 7 in the next 4 (1 of which was in the Championship). He got 10 goals in 11 games for England Under 21, and 1 in 5 full caps for Burundi!

Mrs Sheen was going to vote Women’s Equality this time, on the grounds that she didn’t want anyone else. But they’re not standing this time. Pity, they beat Labour into 4th place in our ward in the last council election.

I see there’s an independent standing to oppose the redevelopment of Kingston. No-one on the north side of the park thinks you can do anything to Kingston to make it any worse, so she won’t get any votes round here.

Voted LibDem three times in a row myself, as well as remain. Not this time.

Leaving aside our own, who are the best players you’ve seen, who you raved about to your mates afterwards, whose careers either failed to take off or who vanished without a trace?

I’ll start with Dean Connolly. I was at a loose end one bank holiday in the early 90s, and made my annual trip to Griffin Park. Brentford crushed Wigan 4-0. The visitors were pretty hopeless except for Connolly, who was fantastic on the ball and incredibly quick to find a pass to a team mate, who quickly lost the ball. At one point, he took the ball with his back to goal about 30 yards out, lost three defenders with a turn and a trick and smashed the ball against the bar. And was then taken off.

At the time he was on loan from Barnsley in the next league up, which didn’t surprise me given his air of superiority and an obvious lack of conditioning. Google tells me he was originally a Celtic junior but was picked up by Arsenal in his teens. Barnsley let him go soon after and I never heard of him again. I can’t forget how talented he looked. I wonder what happened.

Your first Mobile phone and PC ?
at 10:49 19 Nov 2019

My first mobile was the classic Nokia 3210, no pokey aerial. Went for about a week on one charge, mainly because I was so afraid of charges I never used it. When my kids went to the Reading festival five years ago and we wanted a way to keep in touch, we dug it out and it still worked. Great piece of kit.

My first home PC was from Gateway, but I used to have work Compaqs for about a decade before. Started about the size and weight of a sewing machine, with a 5” black and green screen.

Why is fibre to the home so necessary? UK scores very well for speed and data downloads despite the lack of that fibre final connection. Other European markets are cable TV strongholds, which provides the last bit, whereas the UK relies more on satellite. 5G will be a cheaper last mile connection to a fibre backbone in a couple of years anyway.

Broadband connectivity good by European if not Asian standards, costs less so. Data usage high.

Genuine question - if broadband is going to be free, how will nationalised Openreach make a profit?

5G has the potential to deliver faster data speeds without the infrastructure costs of fibre to the premises. Why back one horse?

A minor consideration admittedly, but we binned Virgin Media and now stream our telly through my son’s old PS4. Much better feed than through Roku or Amazon Fire.
