Will young Wiffen's race be on RT… tomorrow?

Imagine they will. Have done a good job of covering Irish competitors based on what Iíve seen so far.

Yes, It's coming up next. A little behind schedule.

Am I right in saying FFP has now been relaxed due to covid and reduced incomes?

Kane saga is dragging on and on - definitely not worth £160m

I see Lewandowski being touted as a target if Kane doesnt come.

At 32 we wouldnt get many top years out of him so it would be a stop gap

£160m is nuts. I still think city should be punting for Haaland instead but what do i know :)

Fabrizio Romano just gave the Varane deal the 'Here we go'

Mad that one - honestly thought he'd stay in Madrid. That could really make a difference. Still need a top level defensive midfielder but it's looking better

Add this and Utd's starting 11 are surely in with a shout.

No deal involved with the park and the hotel but I stayed in the Knightsbrook last week. They were running a decent 2 night family stay, with breakfasts, an evening meal and a pizza night. Short enough drive to the Park from the hotel. About 25 mins I think.

Brentford are usually quite shrewd so i expect they believe they have sourced a quality deal.

I know absolutely nothing about Basketball but i have been seeing quite a few comments about the Bucks on my twitter.  They've the same owners as Villa and thus people have drawn hopeful comparisons of how they kept their star player and progressed.

Mbappe had a poor tournament yeah.  He had plenty of chances to score goals in each match.  People were talking him up as the next Messi/Ronaldo world star.  Neither of those two would have failed to convert some of those chances IMO.

Fair play to the Swiss though.  They usually enter these tournaments having cruised through qualifying but then do nothing on the big stage. They showed last night that they can keep the ball, can hurt teams and have plenty of fight. They were dangerous from crosses all evening.  If Verane does join Utd he will have a difficult time against the likes of Chris Wood.

Not being an expert on running, but with a passing interest, the wee girl from South Belfast Eimer McKee is putting up some times for 5K's and her only 12.

She's in the same school year as my wee girl who commented the other day, that I didn't have to do school sports day with her.  ;D

Hope she keeps that up.

saw this on twitter. unbelievable time.

I got the Connemara Whiskey for Father's day there.  It is a bit of an introduction to peated whiskey for me.  I have had one glass and on first impressions i dont think that style is for me.  I'll keep going with the bottle though just to confirm ;)

I think Croatia will maybe beat them. They can't score because their striker is pretty poor.

Croatia, like Scotland are lacking up front.  Croatia strong in midfield though so loss of Gilmour will be felt by Scotland.
