  1. Broad and Jimmy should have just run themselves out for Dom. Still a good innings and surely we can't lose this...can we?
  2. At least it's not boring. No captain has a lower draw percentage than Root (I don't think) having drawn just four tests. I think that stat really shows how naive we are as a test side. We just can't kill a game. Is this an example of the players, or the captain? Ah well. Lets just go get 'em for now.
  3. It's the same mentality that meant that when the club put prices up massively for children and disabled fans, there was no fight. The club is devoid of passion. Everyone tries to blame everything else but themselves. It's the clubs fault. It's other fans fault. It's the performances. I spent years singing every song in what is now S82, but when it dawned on me that the vast majority of fans at AG did not share my views, I stopped attending. Football clubs are about unity and local pride. There's none of that at AG these days.
  4. Every team ball tampers. Spit with sweets, shining, letting it bounce instead of catching it on the full. i think we all need to get over it.
  5. I try but it really is no consolation for me. The Ashes will always be the pinnacle of English cricket and the world cup was a mere side show.
  6. This completely. 2nd best Test batsman ever after Bradman. No coincidence that the only test we won was one he was absent from.
  7. Anyone who genuinely believes that the Test is not the best cricket format is a fool. This is so so tense
  8. I cannot recommend going to the San Siro before they knock it down enough. At night it is a very intimidating place, steeped in history and so iconic. Fans are good too.
  9. I may be wrong but I believe the new rules also ban that. They also ban the keeper jumping up and hitting the crossbar
  10. Typically if someone dies in a fire, there is almost always a perfect storm.
  11. The problem with wooden framed structures remains that they do not compartmentalise as well as more traditional building methods, and lose their integrity quicker. It's not more likely to catch fire as you'd need a smaller fire to create the required heat for the wooden structure to pyrolyse. Bradford obviously had a huge amount of fuel loading under the stand comprising of small, highly flammable objects that created the required heat to set the stand alight. As there is not going to be a big pile of kindling under the stand, it would take something special for the stadium to catch fire. As with grenfell and other flat fires, the issue was not the structure itself, but the wooden balconies that allow the fire to spread in the oxygen rich, wind driven conditions of 'outside the building'. If you make the outside of your building flammable, fire will spread fast.
  12. So I was cynical when goal line technology was introduced. TBH I was dead against it. However the fact that the referee gets a near instant message, it makes no difference whether as fans you watch the referee, or previously the lino waving his flag or not. I was, pleasantly surprised. However, the way VAR saps games of their intensity. They rob fans of that jubilation as it may be disallowed in a minutes time, but also that added spice when an official gets it wrong and the crowd turns. Many a hour I've spent moaning or debating decisions with friends and it is part of it. Sadly, with so much money in the game, there cannot be room for error at the top as far as FIFA and UEFA are concerned. Money ruins it...again!
  13. Whether I'm on the bike or in the car I shoulder check almost every manoeuvre
  14. So I know I'm covering old and controversial ground but it is nights like the last few that mean I can never understand someone leaving a game early. If you leave early you are almost guaranteeing that you will miss out on so many of the clubs greatest moments. Not only is it often selfish (as people amble out the ground slowly, blocking the view of others) and slightly cringe-worthy, but it's also, in my opinion, quite silly. All the last minute winners and equalisers over the years, missed out on. It honestly boggles my brain as the rush you get for a last minute goal is greater than that of even promotion imo.
  15. I struggle to get too excited by English dominance given the lack of English players. Looks more like the mercenary league every year.
