I'd love her biggest success to be that she remains humble with all the well deserved fame and glory. Pretty sure that's guaranteed listening to her.

Really is the most remarkable rise I can think of ever, in any sport; there have been younger grand slam winners but they were all known more widely than she was (Becker winning Wimbledon unseeded at seventeen springs to mind), until Wimbledon nobody outside of tennis freak circles knew a thing about her.

If it was a film  it'd be dismissed as being totally ridiculous.

Bryson DeChambeau being a dick (unsurprisingly), entering a long hitting contest and saying, "In golf, it's the one thing where you can judge your accomplishments by a number."

Golf, uniquely among sports I think, has a par score for every hole so every round is judged by a number, man's an idiot.

Longest drive for show short game for dough.

Jimmy Greaves dead, such a lovely man. Will watch the Spurs game later though hadn't planned to. Sure there'll be a tribute, what a talent he was.

Indeed, he went through bad times then reinvented as a pundit, Saint and Greavesie was a must watch on ITV late 80s and for my eldest who got into football just before the 90 World Cup.

I've seen worse tackles in football. This looks mistimed but don't think it's malicious, he's just been too slow to react and pull out of the challenge.

Not malicious!? 

The full back is clearly lining up a kick and rather than trying to block the kick he goes in for a very high tackle, almost head first. 

That is as pre-meditated as it comes and I know this having done a few like that myself! Some opportuties are just too good to miss 😂

Me and my brother were trying to explain Saint and Geavsie to my son earlier, settled on Carragher/Neville but just a hundred times funnier.

Saint was a great anchor, greavsie was a very chirpy bright personality who spoke truths and both were full of charisma

What a dick..

...and his maths needs work as well, "Certainly when you've had a baby, you're out nine to 10 months, then you'll take another six months to recover from your body, so therefore it's nearly two years."

Leaving aside the fact that women can still be super-fit in the first few months of pregnancy so the "out for nine to ten months" being bollocks, ten months plus six is nowhere near two years.

Maybe in the dimension where he's not a cunt, it does add up to 2 years.

Newcastle takeover finally happening. My initial reaction was "oh great another team that's going to be consistently pushing for top 6 finishes", but as we've seen with ourselves, money doesn't automatically buy wins.

Ohp! Sorry, didn't see it posted in the Rafa thread! 

Done and dusted.

Unlike us, they now have City levels of money, so mistakes won’t be punished as heavily as they were for us.

I dunno, it has taken James about 5 years to match fit and he still isn't there!

My thoughts are the taking of the knee in football and f1 which are my two sports, players standing for equality  for all and yet the same players will take the dollar although involved with the countries which have human rights issues. Doesn't sit right with me.

Take your point but I think the drivers/players are detached from the team owners by the management structure. Whether they're achieving anything by what they do is debatable, personally I applaud them but ultimately it's a fairly pointless exercise when it comes to moving anything forward. Gives the haters a focus for the hate.

Disappointed that we aren't one of those four, but I'm not surprised there was so little response from clubs and the Premier League clubs in particular.

No problem uniting over the Newcastle takeover because it's all about money though.

I’m 62 and the last 25 years or so in football have been purely about the money from owners agents sponsors and players, so why people are so shocked or morally upset about the Newcastle sale is beyond me it’s just another day in a long line of days of the money being the only thing that matters.

Stolen from elsewhere, "Rashford should tell Solskjaer to prioritise whatever it is he does."

...and...

"It’s not all doom & gloom for Ole.

Watford will need a new manager in a couple of weeks."

I wasn't sure whether this might affect us in some way.

We have a close relationship with Usmanov and his companies but I don't know whether Mohsiri has any involvement with those companies. Given we didn't oppose to the proposal, I am guessing that he doesn't!
