Terrific stuff. Smart tactically for once sending Yates on up ahead and then jumping across to him. 40s a relatively huge margin there.

Mageean a full 24s behind Hull running a new WR in the 2,000m in Monaco tonight. Form really seems to be completely deserting her at exactly the wrong time

Really clutching at straws there.

Quite the comeback from JV there today. Clearly in remarkable shape given the crash.

Maybe a bit of doubt in Pogacar's mind after that. If he can't win this one with the form he's been in and JV's time out, I'm not sure how he ever wins another grand tour they both compete in.

Unbelievable, ref gave them everything
Every decision in the last 30 mins went to the tans including not giving Holland an obvious corner just before they scored

Van Dijk/Stones? Didn't think it was obvious at all and didn't see a replay that proved it one way or the other

Dutch are absolutely turgid and have been for years. They've stopped producing truly elite players the way they used to.

Strange way of putting it given they didn't appear in one between 1984 and 2008.
People who don't know when to use "number of" and when to use "amount of"  :-X  :-X  :-X
The number of people on the internet who don't know the difference between "were" and "where".

I'm absolutely convinced that this is way worse than it used to be.

Quote from: Rois on July 09, 2024, 07:01:28 AMWe had to arrive in Dublin Airport parking a day early due to strike and it was going to cost €100 so we booked one single day for €13.50.

Not to be all Eddie Hobbs but christ almighty. Going home for three weeks at the end of July and flying out of Girona as better, cheaper flights to Belfast then Barcelona and it's only an hour away. General Parking is approximately 20 seconds from the terminal and is stinging me €37 for the whole trip.

Quote from: From the Bunker on July 08, 2024, 11:31:21 PMGood to see Novak Djokovic give a verbal two fingers to the Wimbledon crowd. Wonder does this all harp back to him rightly not taking the Vaccine. It's good to see a man not afraid to take on the Establishment.

Grow up ffs.

Djokovic is a twat and always has been.

Incredible 1500m in the Paris Diamond League yesterday with 10 of the top 12 setting PBs, including a new WR for Kipyegon. Jessica Hull from Australia ran a 5 second PB that made her the #5 woman all time. Sarah Healy and Laura Muir also ran huge PBs.

Unfortunately Mageean was down in 10th and, while she ran a SB 3.58, was one of the two not to run a PB. She pulled out of the nationals citing fatigue so doesn't bode too well for the Olympics. The final won't be as quick as that obviously but a lot of people appear to be in the form of their lives on a fast track.

Quote from: SouthOfThe Bann on May 22, 2024, 09:37:40 AMPortugal are another side with an incredible squad.

Whether Martinez can get the best out of them is another question.

And is Ronaldo a hindrance?
That turned out to be prophetic

He was complete pants, but what country will drop a striker who's scored 10 goals in the qualifying groups? Yes, they had handy teams in their group as do other big countries, but there would have been some Portuguese backlash had he not been involved or starting from their media.

I've said before the guys marmite and if he was chocolate he'd eat himself.

Even if Martinez didn't have the balls to drop him, leaving him in the full 120 mins, again, with him, again, completely failing to impact the game, is absolutely criminal.

He's almost certain to keep going as well.
