    Running shoes

    Sports Direct have a much quicker and easier guide for running shoes its a machine on the floor (well the Yate shop has one), find out what your foot is and buy online much cheaper Wiggle always has offers and discounts for new customers. I went to the shop by the Eye Hospital "Easy Runner" was very disappointed they just got me to run outside for twenty seconds and then tried just to sell me the same pair of Adidas, they said I was a normal runner and didn't put me anywhere near their gait machine! I'm a big fan of Adidas Ultraboost but my latest pair I was quite disappointed by as the fit seems to have changed quite a bit. I would always spend at least £75 anything less you aren't getting a decent shoe imo, having said that the running shops tell me the more expensive ones £100+ just have a lot more cushioning that my running style doesn't need.

    Crowd v Wolves

    I was going to take the kids using their free City 7's tickets but the club said these can only be used for "leagues games" (even though this match is cheaper?), well worth the 30 minute wait on the phone! So they will now be watching on TV!

    Sexism in football

    It's an interesting debate as the likes of Gaby Logan and Claire Balding have been excellent hosts on sports program's (including male sports) for years. I don't remember them getting too much flack as they are good at what they do, but as a pundit you appear to be on a whole different level of scrutiny. I can't say I am a big fan of any of the newer crop of female TV pundits bar Michelle Owen who I thing does very well on Sky unlike Bianca Westwood who seems to play up to the "Bird" image.

    NFL 2018 Season

    It was a long night. I thought the Sky coverage was very poor made me think I don't mind all the Canadian adverts when watching the Bears in the regular season!

    Women allowed to join UK Special Forces

    They don't get anything out of it other than a sense of achievement and a pat on the back from Staff (more than one person has survived in the past). The only person who benefits from the show is Ant Middleton who has an ever growing Channel 4 program CV and an upcoming talk show tour (even advertised in the advert break subtly!). I do think he's quite good though to be fair so good luck to him. Whilst I think putting the ladies up this series has been a good thing to do to evolve the show they do appear to be over focusing on this new concept rather than just getting on with it, I'd say some of their cull decisions are definitely backing the women a little. There was one guy featured in a previous episode who we barely saw yet was culled for no apparent reason? Whether he was so bad he asked to be edited out we will never know. There are also a couple of gals who they have barely focused on so it will be good to see how they get on towards the end. I'm quite surprised as some of the remaining ladies are definitely as good as their male counterparts who are left which I honestly thought wouldn't be the case which advocates the decision to let ladies join.

    Yate / Chipping Sodbury ramblings

    Sorry I was meaning the Yate boozers listed above although I have to say I am quite impressed with the Bolero Lounge for somewhere to have a drink and take the kids. The Sodbury must be made of sterner stuff, how the Port Cullis survives I don't know I think there was some kind of altercation in there on Saturday requiring police attendance so little it seems has changed there.

    It all kicked off in Bristol (Merged)

    I've got a copy of this if anyone wants it finally finished reading it over Xmas not really my cup of tea but I'm sure others will have more of an interest. If anyone wants to pay the postage you can have it for nothing as I only get down the Gate a couple of times a season these days.

    NFL 2018 Season

    What are peoples thoughts on the London games next season; London will see the Rams play the Cincinnati Bengals, the Chicago Bears face the Oakland Raiders, the Houston Texans take on the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Carolina Panthers versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mexico City's Azteca Stadium will host another international game, as the Kansas City Chiefs face the Los Angeles Chargers. Good to have the Rams and Bears over not so sure about the rest Mexico appear to have the best match up despite their pitch woes. I'll be selling a kidney to try and get Bears tickets but knowing my luck will be half term when I'm in Portugal!

    Hurghada/Nile Egypt..

    I've been twice & didn't have a great experience I'm afraid. But I'm sure your trip will be fine if you keep your whit's about you. Did a boat cruise but was in a very small ship - this is where everybody got the Eartha Kits as god knows what they washed the food in so be careful. I remember us tourists waving to a small group of local children from the boat and we all had to take cover as they hurled rocks at us!! The hustling is beyond belief we were in Cairo and a guy came out of our hotel and said he could walk with us to the Needle. He ended up taking us to his brother art gallery!! Don't take photos of anyone they will want money, the police at the pyramids will want money to take a picture of you and one of my party took a picture of some kids working in a field when we were on a donkey ride next thing we know the 50 kids come running over all wanting money! Hopefully its calmed down a bit since those days. Last time I went was Sharm, was much nicer but the resort is still closed as its not safe for Brits. so I won't go into my troubles there.

    NFL 2018 Season

    I'm in NFL hibernation after that Bears defeat!! Probably would like to see Chargers get the Bowl as Rivers has to pay for all those children somehow!!

    Andy Murray

    He's done well since converting from Scottish to British!! Sad to hear how its all gone sour for him with injuries. The bookies don't think he will get through the opening game let alone the tournament (100/1 to win the trophy!)

    Yate / Chipping Sodbury ramblings

    The wife is from Sodbury. Can highly recommend the parkrun, its quite depressing to see all those pubs from the old days no longer with us but a sign of the times I guess.

    NFL 2018 Season

    A few of the big boys seem to be struggling - Pats/Rams/Chiefs and even the Saints to a degree (Brees single handily killed my Fantasy team this week!!). Nobody wants to win the NFC East maybe the Eagles could still sneak in. Club dub in Chicago however is now open for playoff football for the first time since 2010 - Da Bears look very solid at the moment I'm hoping they can carry the momentum into the playoffs after easily seeing off their old foes the Packers and the Evil Lord Rodgers. Biggest flops of the year have to be the Jags and the Falcons loads of talent but they are both struggling for wins. Anyone tipping anyone for the Super Bowl still? I think this is a wide open season personally.
