the guardian has the least number of sales daily/weekly and monthly compared to all the rest, its left wing bog roll with agendas that are as see through as a window with no glass, I wouldn't worry too much.

did the bloke who invented the phrase "one hit wonder" invent anything else?

Isn’t it one of the most read online news websites in the English speaking world though?

That’s the point though you if you set you new offside line as you say in some incidents players will still be 1mm offside. 

Yes but they will be 1mm infront of the defender, ie daylight, unfair advantage. Not now where we punish for being practically fully inline with defender

Back on thread... I know, I'm boring, but USA 13 Thailand 0. The poor Thai goalkeeper looked like a 10 year old schoolgirl in that goal.

She made a couple of good saves, genuinely I think she's a decent shot-stopper which is why she's in the goal.

But, Christ, the defence fell apart time and time again. Credit to the USA for never even thinking about letting up though.

That's extremely interesting. I hadn't seen it before.

Thanks for posting the link.

He does a separate cartoon for the Australian edition of the Grauniad called "David Squires on Australian sport", but it is pretty much exclusively Football. There's one in his archive about Australia's code wars, which only mentions the A-League and AFL.

Another bright idea from UEFA, hold the UEFA Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea in TURKEY!

The season's curtain raiser will take place with the Community Shield between Liverpool and Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, 4 August.

Liverpool and Europa League winners Chelsea will also meet in the Uefa Super Cup in Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday, 14 August.

Following that match, Liverpool play their second Premier League match, away to Southampton, while Chelsea host Leicester City.

Wolves could have played three Europa League qualifying matches before the beginning of the Premier League season.

They announced the location of the Super Cup game months, possibly years, ago.

Next year's is in Porto.

I know. The same as Baku & Madrid. I was being sarcastic. Istanbul in August will be near impossible to get flights & accommodation to at this short notice.

“As see through as a window with no glass”

That seems a very odd comment.

I don’t think the Guardian makes any attempt whatsoever to hide its agenda and never has.

You’ll no doubt be shocked to discover the Telegraph supports the Tories...

Anyway, David Squires’ football cartoons are quite brilliant and if you don’t read them on account of the Graun’s editorial line the loss is entirely yours.

I do like the sports section in the Guardian and also the crime book reviews.

I used to read a columnist called Nick Cohen. In hindsight he seemd to predict the Labour antisemitism issue years before it was raised by others. 

I like the I newspaper because they have small comments from each football team's fanzone columnist.

Don`t you just love the close season. Hazard saying it was a wrench to leave Chelsea and having loved every minute of his time there , despite him and his agent twining for the last 2 years to get away , and him downing tools and getting Mouriniho the sack .And Pogba saying maybe a change would do him good , despite saying Solksjaer was a breath of fresh air when Utd were on their run of wins .
