World Cup 2018 – pre-tournament thoughts (and fixtures)

June 4, 2018

So its now just under 10 days until the 2018 World Cup (in Russia). The last several years I have become less bothered about the national team – partly (mostly?) because of the recent lack of success in recent major tournaments. Not just that we get knocked out “early” but the manner in which we […]

Farewall To A Legend – Thanks Wazza

July 9, 2017

So its a done deal. He’s gone. Wayne Rooney is now no longer a Manchester United player. Thank you Wayne. Wayne himself has thanked the club and fans – via Instagram. Just want to say a massive thank you to everybody at @manchesterunited. Thanks to the boards over the years, the managers and coaches I've […]

Why United shouldn’t buy Cristiano Ronaldo

June 19, 2017

Firstly, I should say that I think all these rumours about Ronaldo wanting to leave Real Madrid are not true. However, being Ronaldo and Manchester United, these are rumours are unfortunately, likely to go on all summer. The transfer window hasn’t even official opened (thats from 1st July)! Now being a United fan, of course […]

Cristiano Ronaldo: he’s a machine. A goalscoring machine

June 4, 2017

So Ronaldo has just won the Champions League with Real Madrid – scoring a couple goals. He is now likely to win the Ballon d’or this year which would be his 3rd one (Messi has 4). The scoring record for Ronaldo is just incredible. He has scored 600 goals for club and country – in 855 games. […]

Europa League / thoughts on season for United

June 3, 2017

So the football season is over – it was for United last week and now that the Champions League has just finished, thats it – congrats to Real Madrid. (Was a pretty good match, Madrid outplayed Juventus 2nd half. Wanted Juve to win basically for Buffon – one of best keepers ever but not won […]

Great Manchester Run / City Games

June 1, 2017

This years was the 11th Great Manchester Run I ran – 11th in a row. As the years go by I get slower, as I get older. Although I don’t really train much so that is probably a factor. But before the run on Sunday, on Friday it was the City Games. This is when […]

Fantasy Football – what a gameweek! 166 points! #FPL

May 19, 2017

I have been playing Fantasy Football for many seasons now – with mixed results but mostly I do fairly decent. Nothing like top 10,000 or anywhere near the very top but decent. Its got more popular as the years have gone by and now there are over 4.5 million teams in the league. When I […]

Rio 2016

August 24, 2016

So the Summer Olympics are over for another 4 years – although we still have the Paralympics (and Winter Olympics) to look forward to. It has been a very successful one for Team GB in terms of medals won. Britain is the 1st country ever to win more medals in a Games following a home Games with 67 […]

New Channel 4 F1 Lineup – looking good!

March 10, 2016

So this upcoming F1 season, the coverage in the UK will be on Sky but now the free-to-air coverage has moved from the BBC to Channel 4. It was only about 3 months ago when BBC announced it was dropping F1 (money saving) and shortly after Channel 4 announced they were taking over. Personally I think […]
