Mignolet won't hang around to be back up. I'd say they'll keep Karius and sell Mignolet.
I see also Leicester are interested in taking Danny  Ward.

12m bid accepted apparently - madness

Good going for a EPL winning team ;)

More time?? Ffs has this pantomime went on long enough? Itís the worst c**k up in the history of modern politics, the quicker it gets sorted then the quicker the place can be back on its feet.

This will end in a new election

You've fair changed your tune!  I knew the penny would drop eventually.

I never did , nor did I vote leave... but the constant deal no deal soft brexit hard brexit bollox is too much, either do it and start over or donít and deal with the economic f**k up thatís hanging around as bad as Sidís stupid posts

would you prefer an income cut of 10% ?

Are we not for the past whatever years now been dropping in income? The uncertainty will continue to drop sterling even further... brexit is a basket case, but something needs done, either run another referendum (wonít happen and maybe if it did it would probably end up with more voting to leave!) or just accept the deal (as shit as it is) and try and build back..

This fiasco has set British politics back 70 years Iíd say, on a personal level Iím lucky enough, good growth in my work and wife has a life time job, but can see big differences in the day to day stuff.. but surely it has to hit bottom before it gets better. At the minute the slow spiral is causing (in the long run) more problems.

Went out on Sunday morning for a small run, first time in about 5 years running and i have to say it was tough. I had the sense to not go too far first time out but only done 2 1/2 miles and it was bad. My leg muscles after run didn't know what had hit them and still sore today, i ran slow enough (eight and a half minute miles) but could't believe how hard the leg muscles got it.

I played football all my life until 8 years ago and took up cycling 4 years ago, wouldn't think twice about cycling 100 miles so am fit enough but couldn't believe what a 2 1/2 mile jog done to me...

Cycling is for poofs

Guess that makes me a poof then, that's not very nice.

In saying that I couldnít just get on my bike and do 100 miles! But itís easier on the body exercise to running!! Iíve ran a few days here on holiday and was busted but it was the heat! 

Running is an all over work out, ive a few friends who would spin 4 nights a week and do 100 miles on Saturday and a Sunday, they ainít small around the waist either!

Iíve taken them out of their comfort zone a few times to a hiit class and punctured is an understatement... so the point is mix it up, donít be a poof  ;)

In fairness i have seen quite a few guys that need to eat less as they're stretching their Lycra beyond it's capabilities. I think you see a few more fat cyclists because they can get away with it easier on a bike than trying to run when over weight.

Iíve noticed over years doing triathlons that in sprint ones the heavier guys were beating me by 10/15 minutes, decent swimmers but great on the bike, so by the time Iíd got off the bike to run they probably about a mile to run while I had to run over 3!

The longer races they gained even more time on the bike over a greater distance, but I was managing to catch up with them before the end of the run! But as you say, canít put train the diet!

Good luck if youíre back playing, fitness is one thing but taking the hits and tackles is another thing!

I'm watching Seven Seconds, a 10 part drama about a US cop who ran over a young black kid and the subsequent cover up. At first I didn't take to it,  but I plugged away and after a few episodes I began to like it for the same reasons that other people didn't like it. It's slow, "a slog" said the Guardian, characters are not particularly likable.

Thought it was a great show tbh

That a photo from the WC where they all sang Three Lions, Miltown?

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fa-to-act-over-england-fans-nazi-salutes-mkfcggrh6

So I asked you a question and you answered it? What more would you like me to say on the matter?

Seems I got the wrong end of the stick, I believed you were of the notion that the England fans were great lads, and in the Sid camp of thought. Id put a picture up of the lovely lads having some banter.

Apologies

The rule is .. hand in an unnatural position, referee decides that, or deliberately (easy one)

Unless thatís changed then Iím sorry.. as for not addressing my link.it in relation to the English fans being nazi supporters, you asked the about whether it was at the world cup but the link I put up was 2017.. clearly giving it loads

But Iím all over the shop
Ah that's not rule but sure you work away

A handball should not be awarded if a player is ruled to have handled the ball accidentally. This refers to a player either attempting to protect himself from injury, for example by placing the hands in front of the face and then being hit by the ball, or a player being hit on the arm by the ball without moving towards the ball and without being able to move out of the way. An example might be a snap shot hitting the arm of a defender at point-blank range. However, if a playerís arm is in an unnatural position, for example outstretched or above their head, then a foul should be awarded whether accidental or not.


Iíve highlighted it, just in case

From fifa rules, but you can work away too

That's not the arguement you made though, is it? You never said anything about the referee's judgment. What you said was:

Defo penalty, his hand deflected the ball...

The logical assumption here is that this is the totality of everything you have to say on the matter. His hand deflected the ball, ergo penalty. Which isn't what the law says, is it?

As for your other nonsense, I haven't disagreed with the decision at all. I can see equally how the ref chose to give it and how so many people see it the other way.

So itís ok to deflect the ball with your hand? cause thatís not written in the rules itís ok, hmm

His hand did deflect the ball! If it didnt touch the ball it would have traveled further into the box! And possibly into an attackers path! Or even another own!

You still havenít addressed the link I put up for the English lads who preferred to be Nazis in 2017, not 1995, neither has Sid but heís a clown

The referee has to decide whether or not the hand was in an unnatural position, thatís why the VAR lads made it his decision to make, real time or slow mo the ref has decided that it was handball..

Irrespective of that the best team overall won out, and regardless me winning a bet I wanted Croatia to win, they accepted the call, even the Germans besides me decked out in Croatian tops agreed..

But youíll continue to disagree with the ref and thatís fine, but give him some credit, he didnít decide at the time but on reflection came to a different call, I wish I had that opportunity every week
