I drank with him in a bar in the Houses of Parliament the night Barcelona beat arsenal in the CL Final. A complete kinky buffoon who spent a lot of the time shouting obscenities at the TV and groping some young girls that were there because one of them was friendly with some SNP MP who used to be a member of the band Runrig
Has Fearon taken over this account?

Sean Cox out of his coma this evening.
Some good news. A long road ahead of him but that's excellent stuff after 3 months or so in a coma.

Is the Derry stuff co-ordniated or is it just a shower of wee b**tards off school with little else to do?

Roy Keane going all in here on ITV.
He called bullshit on a whole nation who got carried away with themselves.
Correctly called out the bullshit spouted by Wright and Dixon

I think France will be strong favourites in the final, they are very good defensively. Giroud is limited up front but everywhere else they are a good side without being spectacular.

England have been blessed with the draw they got and I think their match with Croatia tomorrow is a real 50/50 game. Hopefully Croatia will make it a final we can actually enjoy. Would love to see Croatia win the thing outright.

Much being made of Harry Kane and the golden boot but when you break it down he's only scored two goals that he knew anything about in open play and they were from set pieces by and large.
Lingard is the only one to score a decent goal of note and that was against Panama.

Croatia seem to lack mental fortitude according to Bilic and if they can score first it will be interesting to see how England respond to being in a deficit.

Sadly I can see England win this one from a corner or the likes.
Agree. Despite having some stars on their team and reaching the semis Croatia have also benefited from playing some average teams. They haven't impressed me either so if their is any justice which ever teams plays France in the final will get stuffed.

I'm actually surprised that Graham Norton salary is as low as it is (on paper anyway) and Steve Wright's is so high. Most of the bigger earners are multi-taskers whereas Steve Wright only appears to do the afternoon show on Radio 2.

Shearer's salary is a joke.

The first Sicario movie was very good and I'll watch the second one even though it has universally had less glowing reviews than the first one.

Hope someone opposes him. For democracy's sake alone.


I hope he goes again. He has really grown into the role.
;D You're a cruel man!

I wonder will he be charged with something though. It would seem harsh, but a diver died trying to rescue them. If he brought them down there, he may be in bother.
Yeah it definitely is bittersweet when an otherwise fot and healthy man has died in the rescue mission.

Still it would appear there was issue with his equipment for the journey. As experienced divers they would no doubt have factored in that he needed oxygen for the return leg and his outward leg would have used much more than the return leg due to exertion of shifting oxygen tanks. It seems like an unnecessary death considering the number of people involved in the operation.

Enjoyable that, glad Croatia won, if only to see Modric again he's a joy to watch..

Wonder if Putin will let all the mad hoolies out of the big forest he's been keeping them in now  :)
Fingers crossed.

Yeah. Youíre right there. I used to follow the sport in my younger days but itís haywire stuff. Itís like what F1 was in the 1960s before Jackie Steward introduced safety as a priority. Isle of Man is a complete bloodbath. I think there was a guy Gene McDonald his name might have been, who got killed on the IOM when he hit a horse that had strayed onto the course. I know itís in their veins but would we make Russian Roulette legal just because people liked playing it?
Agree entirely. It makes no sense to me and I'll actively discourage my son's from getting motorbikes but we all know people who are into bikes, and when you're into them, you're all in. Driving at 190 mph+ inches from stone walls, gateposts and fences is the very definition of madness to me, but it's obviously a drug for these fellas. I can't imagine Michael Dunlop will hang up the leathers.
