  1. Indeed, and I wonder (fear) what is going to happen with the wonderful, world class even, talent that is Massengo.
  2. Hmmm. Posts on this forum are frequently misconstrued so, in order to avoid any confusion, I should just like to state that my earlier post was intended to express my abhorrence at the (inherent message of the) Italian journalist's post. The reason I laughed when I first read the article is because, as I said, I pictured the journalist actually writing such trash. Just imagine, when penning an article about Romelu Lukaku, he has actually written/typed: "If you go one-on-one with him he will murder you. "The only way to come up against him is maybe give him 10 bananas to eat..."
  3. The BBC article below refers to an Italian journalist: when I first read it, I laughed. I am not racist, but (cue smug laughter) I struggled to keep a straight face. 'An Italian television station says it will not use one of its pundits again after he made a racist comment about Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku. Speaking on TopCalcio24, Luciano Passirani said: "If you go one-on-one with him he will murder you. "The only way to come up against him is maybe give him 10 bananas to eat..."' Just for a second, think about the message the journalist is trying to convey: Lukaku is big and black, like a gorilla even: ergo, give him ten bananas to eat, and he will just sit quietly while you enlightened 'whities' play around him. Peter Godsiff, David Foot, even Roger Malone - Come Back! All is forgiven.
  4. In order to reach a state of total despair, have a peek at the Sammie Szmodics thread, from @Mad Cyril's post #11.
  5. As I said, the subject of the thread was the increasingly poor standard of journalism: 'The standard of journalism is now so poor on our local rag I thought it warranted a thread all of it's own. Typo's, misspellings, fake news, etc. any subject matter, not just football. I'll start; Coss just £110k ?' When I posted, I sought simply to highlight two (of many) spelling/grammatical errors in the thread that, ironically, especially given the context, I considered amusing.
  6. Wow! 100 up - shame that we are 8 wickets down. Still, two sensible batsmen to continue after lunch and perhaps get at least one batting point.
  7. The weather in Southampton is supposed to improve this afternoon - excellent batting conditions for Hampshire? This Abbott bloke is pretty good, though: 6/11 off 11 overs with 8 maidens. 59/7 now, although we have avoided the follow-on.
  8. Hmmm. Three more wickets down already. 57/5 as I type - some pretty poor shots it has to be said, particularly Tom Banton who appeared to be still in 20/20 mode.
  9. Hi Louie Louis, You will recall that the subject of the thread was the increasingly poor standard of journalism, 'Typo's, misspellings, fake news, etc.', in The Bristol Post. Whilst I have no particular issue with the word 'ain't', the reason I highlighted the word 'aint' in your post was that, like all contractions of auxiliary verbs, e.g. I'm for I am, it's for it is, I've for I have, the word takes an apostophe: you omitted the apostrophe in your post, just as you have with 'whats' in your latest post. But, no issue. We'm all friends on 'ere.
  10. Indeed, and what a wonderful finale to his career. As a Somerset fan, I remember wishing the same for Courtney Walsh.
  11. Highest First Class score for Darren Stevens Yorks v Kent 356-5 A thick inside edge off Tim Bresnan moves Darren Stevens on to 207. Patterson bowls. Billings gets a single to get Stevens back on strike. Driven down the ground for four! Darren Stevens has 211! It's his highest ever score for Kent and the highest ever score for Kent against Yorkshire! Well Done Darren - an old stalwart.
  12. I posted some months ago, wondering whether, following the departure of Ali, we might get Tres back for his 400 runs. Obviously romantic, but....
  13. In the stars ? Last week, Ryan ten Doeschate, the Essex captain won the toss and (erroneously, as it transpired) put Warwickshire in to bat. This morning, Tom Abell forfeited the right to bowl first in overcast conditions, and opted for a toss, preferring to bat first on a fantastic pitch. Unfortunately, Tom lost the toss, and here we are: Hold Tight!
