  1. Michelle Owen/Lee Johnson interview Monday

    Yeah Michelle Owen is well worth a go. Don't see the fascination with Bianca Westwood though. Natalie Sawyer is on top of Everest though.
  2. Champions league draw

    I can see all 5 English clubs going through. The 3 obvious ones are both Manchester Clubs & Liverpool. Great draws for them. Juventus are still a class side, but there is something about Tottenham in Europe this season, they just seem that little bit more of a threat. Let's be honest, Dybala could easily dribble passed the whole defence and score, but over 2 legs, I fancy them to come away with victory. Chelsea obviously have the toughest out of the 5. I imagine a similar scenario to that of when Chelsea won the CL when they beat Barcelona in the semi finals. 1-0 win at home and draw other there. Messi is still the best player but not at the level he was a few years ago, no Xavi, Iniesta at the end of his career (albeit i'd still have him in our midfield if given the chance) and despite them having all this cash and not losing many games this season, they still have a terrible defence. One thing i am ecstatic about. Either Real Madrid or PSG will be eliminated in this round. Lesser of 2 evils, i'm gunning for PSG, on the condition that they get knocked out in the next round.
  3. Freddie Hinds

    I hope he doesn't go into Jordan Wynter mode where he has all the potential and none of the delivery off the pitch.
  4. That Benteke Penalty

    The Palace forum made for interesting reading this morning. A mixture of "he best work his arse off midweek" & "i hope he never plays again" - awkward situation for Hodgson over the next few days as to what to do with him Terrible penalty and with his penalty history, only he knows what went through his mind at that moment. The player who took their penalty earlier in the game scored a near unstoppable penalty, a great hit in the top corner. Benteke's pen was just awful. A complete contrast. Thing is, it does his cause no good if he wants to leave as what club would want to sign someone like that?
  5. I said it all Summer to my mates that he'd be going to Russia 2018. Now they're seeing what he's all about in the premier league, they're now agreeing with me.
  6. Nelson's Column

    Also one other comment that I friend of mine mentioned. Why were these statues not offensive to the antifa gimps when Obama was president??
  7. Nelson's Column

    I joked ages ago that they should take down the Washington and Lincoln monuments in America and rename all the roads, buildings etc in light of their slave ownership days. - also change the faces on the notes too. - hilariously, there are some out there who are calling for these to be taken down - clowns. They can also pull down Nelson Mandela's statue in London for the murders he committed to innocent South African's (we had this discussion on here years ago when he died, i was in a minority about him, the only thing he proved was that the prison system worked - google Church Street Pretoria) I'd also pull down the Colosseum in Rome and the Pyramids in Egypt. There was new evidence that it wasn't "all" built by slaves, some were paid, but as it wasn't the accepted minimum wage and they were built for people that had slaves, then they too should be taken down. what else..... what else... Taj Mahal - built by Shah Jahan, he was a nasty piece of work, that can go. What is left of the Great Wall of China. Incredibly bigoted of the Chinese to build a wall to protect their citizens from neighbouring invaders. #trumpesque Roman Baths in Bath city center - they can definitely be concreted over. #triggered
  8. OFFICIAL Lions Tour 2017 thread

    Murray will definitely start now. He controlled the forwards and dictated the backs all game. He was my definite starter when the tour started and he has nailed that position so far. What a wonderful selection headache to have with this squad of players. Watson today was brilliant when he came on, but I would not start him at fullback. He'd be on the wing with north on the other wing and halfpenny at full back. Would still like to see Joseph play at 13 more this tour. It could be an England midfield of farrell, teo and Joseph that starts the first New Zealand game. It's the 13 position that interests me at the moment. As much as I love jj (bath bias), he needs to show in these games that he can be the best option against this opposition. We shall see over the next few weeks.

    Evening gentlemen and ladies. This mornings game was superb. What a fantastic defensive display from the lions. Faletau was sensational again, hard to imagine he'd be second fiddle to Billy v had he been fit. He's been our best player so far. The set piece is starting to take shape, as is the movement in the backs. Considering crusaders have not gone without scoring a try for 13 odd years, I'd say it was testament to Mr Gatland's tactics. With regards to Mr Robartes comments above, based on form so far, I'd only select Farrell at 10. I would not select both he and sexton. We tried playing two fly half's vs new Zealand in 2005 with Jones and Wilkinson and it didn't work. I'd have Farrell at 10 and teo at 12. Crash ball 12 don't necessarily have to pass the ball, just create the space for others to flourish. Don't want to be too clever by playing these two at the same time. Plenty of warm up matches and training go go.
  10. OFFICIAL Lions Tour 2017 thread

    Wasn't great but first game never is, jet lag and conditions were not favourable to either side. Pretty sure henderson & Seymour won competitions to play as both were poor. The bath players played well (biased opinion of course), sinckler did well. Other than that, not too good. For those of you with sky on demand, I've been watching the lions documentaries. Watching the 2005 one at the moment. I've gone backwards, did 2013 first then 2009. Brought back some good memories and unfortunately, the nightmare Ronan o'gara end to the 2nd test in South africa.

    How nice that Ariana Grande is coming back to do a benefit gig at Old Trafford cricket ground. She'll be joined by Katy Perry & Miley Cyrus. All 3 support the current "no borders" trend...... if they held the benefit gig in Mecca i'd take them seriously.
  12. OFFICIAL Lions Tour 2017 thread

    That's good though Bill. The tougher the warm up matches, the better for when the tests actually come about. Otherwise complacency gets in the way. When i played rugby not so long ago, we learned nothing from the 40/50 - 0 matches, the ones i always enjoyed most were the close matches, regardless of whether we won or lost, the intensity and the mindset that you had to improve stuck with us (obviously yes, better when we won but you know what I mean)

    Terror threat now raised to critical. Military possibly deployed to secure certain places .... Source sky news

    Billy v withdraws due to injury Haskell takes his place.
  15. OFFICIAL Lions Tour 2017 thread

    Well halfpenny has just been man of the match in tonight's top 14 match. Hitting form at the right time.
