    Football Kits 2018/19

    I don't normally buy kits from other teams but this is beautiful. River Plate had their sponsorship deal run out and no other company stepped up with an acceptable amount so they are going to be playing in this.

    Salford City aren’t going to get those numbers. FC United certainly haven’t.

    Brazil 1970. Greatest team of all time, you must be joking.

    Yes, but I'm not sure why we should let perfect be the enemy of good? If a club can afford to pay for this technology, then I don't see why they shouldn't be able to. Making it mandatory I would have a problem with at lower league level. (You could, of course, argue that by installing the technology said richer/bigger club is giving themselves a disadvantage by introducing a way for a bad decision in their favour to be overturned.) One problem I find that the FA is responsible for is the disallowing of 3G pitches. These have been successful in non-league as a revenue earner and prevention of postponements. Why they don't allow lower league clubs to have them is beyond me.

    I think that with Rugby League, if the tech is there then they use it. I don't really have a problem with applying that logic to football.

    Rami Malek is Freddie Mercury

    A red phone box, a postbox and a Mini. It's the Hollywood "Look people, this is set in England" visual trope full house. Also, Roger Taylor and John Deacon look uncannily accurate.

    Blimey. That’s a shock. RIP Ray.

    If the future doesn't look promising enough, England players have been scoring highly in Twatball as well.

    No, it touched his foot.

    To pick up on this because it mentions the shots on goal thing. Kane’s double chance with two shots doesn’t count in the official stats because the linesman (wrongly) flagged offside. If it had gone in then VAR would have overturned the flag and the SOG stat increased by two.

    He doesn't look too happy about it either.

    They don't ask how, they ask how many.

    Todays Squires cartoon is magnificent. Roy Keane, Big Sam, that Southgate lookalike. Too many highlights. https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2018/jul/13/david-squires-on-the-stages-of-world-cup-woe-and-reasons-to-be-cheerful

    Kane is not the most talented, not the fastest, not the strongest. But he is an instinctive goalscorer and he just knows where to be and what to do. The winner against Tunisia was a perfect example, right place, right time and a placed header in the heat of the moment. Go watch it again and I guarantee you that most players would have put it straight into the keeper. I thought he might be a one-season flash in the pan but he's done it for three now. He's the real deal.

    Elite Dangerous - Krait Mk II is excellent!

    The voice logs telling of the research against the Thargoids was quite good. Ended with you finding 10 steps, I think.
