    Russia: Should England boycott the World Cup?

    As silly as it sounds, pulling the football team out of the World Cup is one way to seal political suicide. Not only that but likely cause (small) economic harm to the country with the increase in food/drinks from watching England games and generally take the wind out of a summer millions of people are anticipating.

    Champions League 2017/18

    Aside from PL Tonight on BT, which genuinely does tend to be a good watch though is hugely overhyped by BT themselves, ex-player pundits are the exact reason I prefer podcasts from informed journalists, who actually watch games. Totally Football Show, On the Continent, Football Weekly are just three worth a listen with journalists from various backgrounds and places who have considered knowledge. You genuinely feel that BT were raging that Sevilla knocked out their cash cow Man Utd, ruining the dream of a Man Utd-Liverpool QF and massive viewing figures. Personally hoping for some belting QF ties in the draw. Imagine Real-Barca, Liverpool-Man City, Juventus-Roma and Bayern-Sevilla

    So proud Southampton have abandoned the merry-go-round of British managers to give a young homegrown coach and opportunit..... oh Hughes' sixth PL club managed, just the one behind Allardyce but proudly pulling one ahead of Hodgson.

    2003-04 when they hired Carlos Queiroz. Then Man Utd Asst Manager. Whilst he had had managerial experience before, at both club and international level, including a spell as Sporting CP Manager winning the Portugese Cup, he hadn't pulled up trees. Of course that went (not very) well.

    What grinds my gears...

    I dunno why but I feel like I've posted this gripe before. Anyway. Inspired by a Tweet I saw, I'm really not okay with the pressure that gets PILED on couples entering their late 20's to have kids if they're childless. People I know have recently had children and instantly it's "oooh you'll have this soon," or the even worse "So when will it be your turn. Won't be long after you get married, will it?" No, just no. You're in a position where you want kids, and that's fine. Why is it suddenly a prerequisite in some people's eyes for a couple to have a child when they settle down. Very frustrating. I am convinced there are couples who have had kids just to keep their friends/family happy.

    Your last Pint?

    Last pint was Kozel in the National Videogame Arcade in Notts. Quite nice but a disappointing 4%. Personally always look for Tuborg, San Miguel, Birra Moretti when I go in a pub. Heineken is my backup and Stella is my backup backup. Carlsberg Export is nice but I've only ever seen it on tap in London. Would rather drink a diet coke than Carlsberg, Carling, Fosters, Bud Light or Coors Light, mind. Have to say, as sniffy as some people get about Wetherspoons, the one near Leicester Square was one of the best places I've been to for a variety of beers on tap. Someone mentioned Delirium above. Like a lot of people one of the best places I've ever been to. Mind blowing.

    I think so. He's a fully paid up member of the conspiracy club. Sean Dyche loyalist and thinks every decision that goes against them is some kind of agenda to keep Burnley from their true destiny of being champions forever. Do people really think they are to be taken seriously when they use language like "First game for ages when the ref hasn't tried to "stitch us up?"

    If Cardiff are coming up then I hope it's two of Wolves/Derby/Fulham coming up, too. We're already losing West Brom and I really cba to be facing two trips to Wales for away games next season ffs.

    Mahrez retires?

    Why would anyone ever begin to get stressed out by this nonsense. As if someone of such value to Leicester City Football Club would be allowed to announce his retirement on his own social media at midnight. No press conference, no details from the club. Nothing. Makes perfect sense Anyone who even took this in for a fraction of a second is a bit of a plum.

    Time added on - it's becoming a joke

    Time wasting is like diving now, it's part of the game because there's no severe enough punishment to prevent players from thinking about it. Begovic could've gone on for another hour and he wouldn't have been booked. Even then, what's a very late booking after an hour of time wasting. He might be unlucky enough to get five and a suspension but equally he knows the referee won't add a proportional amount of time on, and it enhances their chance of getting three points. What would you do? Until bookings are made early and sternly, or a team is shocked to find 9 minutes of added on time, a simple point to the watch by the referee and booking in the 92nd minute isn't going to stop goalkeepers. Same goes for the outfield players, and substitutes who that annoying walk-run as they come o

    Explosion on Hinckley Road

    Yes, but unfortunately that also means the idiots online are putting 2+2 and getting 83797435. Conspiracy to cause an explosion is not necessarily terrorism (I'm not saying you're inferring that, Buce, just many corners of the internet now are). It can be making a bomb to destroy an ATM, get into a building. Unfortunately and unavoidably this has set pulses racing for those desperate for it to be a terrorist-related crime.

    Bournemouth chances of it being postponed ?

    Took a while but found it. Page 40 ffs. Leicestershire Police tweeting the game was Cancelled. Just enjoy the panic and confusion unfold from that page onwards Special mention in that thread to those saying the attendance would be only 10 or 15k. Ambitious lot.

    Bournemouth chances of it being postponed ?

    That Ipswich away game was one of the craziest experiences ever. Getting to Ipswich with not a drop of snow on the ground, and it literally at the top of my foot walking back to the coach. Absolute farce and one of the coldest games I've ever attended. I was desperate for the referee to call it off and give them the three points, just so we could get going. It wasn't snow, but do you remember the season before when we had Cardiff and Doncaster postponed on consecutive weeks? Cardiff had under soil heating but hadn't got the licences or permissions to turn it on I remember, and even the rearranged Doncaster game was utterly freezing with snow falling. The Boro game is, in all honesty, just a game that will live in the memory. The carnage slowly building as the snow just would not stop, the walk to the ground, the emptyness of the ground. Really bemusing experience walking past the Boro team coach. I have only ever seen the Narborough/Upperton/Raw Dykes Rd that congested twice. Boro in the snow and the night we won the title.

    Premier league attendances figures

    Saddens me most because that figure will go down as an official statistic. In years to come some saddo like me will look on Wiki or in a book and, if they didn't know any better, genuinely think it was basically a full house. Misrepresenting history for me, and it's well off.

    Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    You haven't won since 12 December. I'd argue that the only reason you are in seventh place right now is the ineptitude of any team below you, including (and especially) us, to put a run together and overtake you. I always find it amazing how every referee, no matter which club, has a conspiracy against all 20 PL teams if you speak to some fans of each club.

    What grinds my gears...

    I'm not sure what you're defining as "younger generation," are you saying it's just the under 30's who slap in compensation requests if they slip on the ice? Is it definitely just young people who try to jib a day of work if there's snow? Here's an 83 year old trying to sue the Council for slipping on the ice... is he the younger generation? Here's a 59 year old trying to sue the Council for clipping on the ice... is he the younger generation? Or are they both bereft of common sense, I'm not sure?

    What grinds my gears...

    I'm so bored of old people telling the world how great they were back in the day and how they made it into school even if there were 90ft snow drifts with their feet covered in blocks of ice. Totally ignoring the outside factors of why schools close, from bus companies not doing their rounds, teachers affected by their kids' school closures and the general health and safety aspect of an unsafe school. I always think these people would be the first onto Injury Lawyers4U when their darling child slips over and bangs their head in the school grounds.
