  1. Nice to see Peru have kept the football shirt. Surely the finest international soccer strip going?
  2. Indeed. However, his kicking game alone will be much better than what we've seen so far.
  3. However, the Football League had test matches, effectively playoff or MPG for many years.
  4. Actually got a bizarre feeling about this one. Shoot me down, but I can see a WP win here. The Mighty Wigan have been far from impressive so far. Indeed, if Wire had kept 13 on the field we'd be talking about Wigan in crisis. WP are,weak up front. So are Wigan...
  5. This is an important point. He has said he really wanted to be a Childrens TV presenter. Would have been utterly unthinkable in the 80s. And why now? Because the tabloids we're about to out him. Personally, I was unaware he was married to a woman. I'd have been more surprised if he'd come out as straight.
  6. Wouldn't Timbuktu/Mogadishu Girls School for the blind be a better analogy? At least Brisbane would have a bloody good idea of what game they were supposed to be playing.
  7. Not the tastiest of fixture lists. Only Swinton Dewsbury looks very competitive.
  8. In other news. Hudgell is a lawyer. Trebles all round for m' learned friends.
  9. Yes. Given more local and better supported opposition, better weather, and a few wins under their belt, there is the potential for more...
  10. It's a bit like saying Usain Bolt, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah are all world class athletes. Yes they are. But that doesn't necessarily translate. I see US football as the 100 m, RU as summat technical like long jump, or pole vault, and RL as the 5000 metres. If asked to switch would they give it a bloody good go? Of course. They are all super fit and used to working hard. They'd probably be better than your average honest trier. Are they all dedicated, committed athletes? Well yes of course. Would they give their all out of professional pride and will to win? Absolutely. But it isn't that simple...
  11. Unfair! Mr. Hock has a long and varied experience of re-arranging other people's body parts.
  12. Ditto. In the race to slate Toronto's performance, which wasn't good, a truly fine display from Trueman has gone a bit under the radar. He would have caused much better sides a heap of problems. On that form he could lead Cas to a very good season indeed,
  13. There are definitely a couple of empty seats behind them.
  14. Yes, but, he wasn't always a muslim. Turning over a new leaf is the very essence of conversion to any faith.
  15. If he has Love the sinner hate the sin as his mantra, then that would be fine with me. If anyone religious uses their faith to help others and deeply reflect on their failings and resolve to improve as a human being as a mantra then I am OK with it. Whatever faith. If they use their faith to belittle, intimidate, bully, condemn or incite violence against anyone else then that is not OK with me.
  16. Yes but there is skilful means. He has refused to wear gambling sponsorship. He did so quite reasonably, and didn't accompany it with a declaration that everyone who did was off to Hell. In many ways he is a good model for his religion. Makes a stand, and a point, without demanding or condemning others. Perhaps that is why the money flows? Who am I to guess what he thinks?
  17. Compare and contrast SBW. Falls into the same categories. Except for the dope.
  18. I see that you, at least, catch the nuance here.
  19. And, by way of contrast, if every SL player was melded up to some sort of infallible mind scan as to whether they had had thoughts of a same sex nature. I guarantee they wouldn't be alone.
  20. Cue cries of "FORWARD!!!" every time he passed no doubt.
  21. Ouch! You have NINE players out for game 1? Serious Questions need asking particularly if they are out of game injuries. Toronto for me given that list.
