  1. A tad early for some, but League 1 finishes tomorrow. I pick Bolton's Phil Parkinson who has built a team likely to get automatic promotion from rejects, free transfers and loans. A transfer embargo has been in place all season and his 2 best young players were sold on to keep the club going. Another winding up order yesterday after other crises during the season. Well done Parky!!
  2. Lousy, but better than Chelsea and Liverpool. No wonder the England team is garbage.
  3. Nice story. It can be hard work on hot days. Will this club be extended to Pattaya beach?
  4. Buy the BP Saturday edition and all sports broadcasts for the week are listed.
  5. All Retox bars and Robin Hood bar are open 24 hours and should have this fight on.
  6. Rubbish, if you'll pardon me for saying so. Just 4 years ago, the Lions played in NZ and their captain (an Irish chap) was picked up by 2 NZ players and his head was speared into the ground. This was early in the 1st test and the guy never played again in the series. I understand this brutal tactic is now illegal (why not already?) but as the Lions head back out to NZ this summer I am sure something equally vicious has been dreamt up in the meantime. I am writing this while watching City v Utd. It's not very exciting for a neutral. Has Yaya got a sweat on or is it raining? Zabaletta looks like your best player.
  7. None, per usual.
  8. Yes; hiding the ball in scrums and using kicking the ball off the field of play as a "tactic". Add in punching, collapsing scrums, eye gouging and treading on and raking your studs over opponents. Many of these exciting moments of the sport are subject to video reffing. You may like it; I don't.
  9. Beds? There's a thought with endless possibilities.
  10. Central - as in slap bang next door to the police station.
  11. Once the genie is out of the bottle it won't be going back in. It is irreversible. Rugby; Union in particular; is a dull sport which needs excitement manufactured to make it interesting. I predict it will cause more friction than benefit but we will see. I may find it more difficult to see with my blinkers. 😉
  12. The police motto is "protect and serve". But who?
  13. Football matches will become 2 hours plus affairs. Great news for advertisers and sponsors, bad news for fans. See if you still like it in two years.
  14. No tongues, so not too friendly.
  15. There are plenty independant Chinese tourists. The main point of travelling independantly is no need to follow a tour operator's schedule and just do your own thing. Everything can be booked online. Chinese students study at universities accross the globe for years at a time, so a holiday in Pattaya isn't going to phase them.
