    Looks like the ‘one love’ armbands are getting the boot.

    Captains who wear them will get a caution. Most European nations were going to wear them. Van Dijk and Kane now saying ‘it’s not worth a booking’ There is an alternative - they wear them every game, get booked every time (along with team mates) until they have no one left to play. Or, they...

    And full of kids, with another 9000 outside. Just been on a ‘seeing is believing‘ business trip to Nottingham. They have 79000 kids in poverty. We went to see social enterprises and volunteers dealing with food poverty in the city. Inspiring and horrifying. This kind of thing was new to many...

    Dan Martin Interview

    Enjoyed it. He’s selling books so, probably a little OTT in places. In the era we have now I don’t think it’s fair to say the best riders are robots. The last couple of years we have had a lot of fun with Pog, Rog, Remvo VDP, WVA et al. But, his warnings on longevity could come home to roost...

    The Walk of a Life Time - New Zealand?

    Probably My son and partner planned to do this in October 2021 - for obvious reasons it tanked. They worked, they sold up and eventually left UK in Jan this year.

    The French taking some action ref Qatar world cup

    Most major cities including Paris (PSG owned by Qatar) will not have the World Cup played live for the public. Means no fan zones etc. They say it is in response to public opinion (Pierre??) A small gesture but at least it is something Cantona saying he won’t be watching any game at all (much...
