    According to the Mirror, Ceferin at UEFA responding to Klopp’s concerns about having to play more games under the new Champions League format, says that it was done to save clubs. “Our reforms came about because clubs need help responding to the financial crisis. We can carry on as we are but...

    Which remote controlled trolley?

    I have the Stewart X9 Follow and had an X7 remote before. I can highly recommend them. The downside is they are quite heavy and bulky but I believe the Q Follow is quite compact but IMO doesn’t look as good but that’s just personal choice. Once you have used one you will never look back.

    Whatever happened to?

    Can’t believe Homer has gone. I hope he is putting the time he spent contributing on here to good use. EDIT: Just read his last post. He did the right thing and I truly hope he is doing OK.

    My “bad streak” is actually permanent

    You have summed up my usual problems ... and something I think is much overlooked in golf. If someone I didn’t know saw me on the range they would probably estimate my handicap is at least half of what it is... as long as they didn’t see the first couple of shots. I believe your body very...

    My “bad streak” is actually permanent

    I have had slumps before and come out of them quite well, but coming out of lockdown 1 I was dreadful and I didn’t really recover last year. Throughout lockdown 3 I tried to get my swing back by using my cage net and skytrak but tbh - and I know this sounds odd - I think I actually did myself...

    And therin lies the problem and the Leeds scenario is the perfect example. Risdale gambled big time and it didn’t pay off. But if it had and they reached the CL final or even won it the financial benefits would have been huge and would have put Leeds on the map, including raising their...

    I agree. There is a problem though and it goes right to the heart of the entire matter. Footballers have to be rich. It adds to the glamour and glamour sells. The owners know this and that’s why they would rather be playing Real Madrid than “Stoke on a wet Wednesday”. This isn’t just the case in...

    Sky are loving it for the obvious financial reasons but also because they came out so strongly against it right from the start. Now they are trying to set themselves up as the fans favourite. Neville is in overdrive. One reporter claimed that the 6 owners were phoning all the other clubs to eat...

    That’s a very good point Tash and you know, I don’t think any of them thought there would be such a backlash. People only whisper secretly about secrets. If no-one in the know thought it was such a big deal they probably didn’t think there was much to be gained by breaking a confidentiality...

    If I was one of the 6 and we were hit with a 20 point deduction I would treat it as a “free year” and blood a team full of youngsters, building a team for the future. As long as you don’t get relegated you can’t really lose. No-one would expect you to win anything and as we know, you win nothing...

    Honestly, I simply wouldn’t answer any of his posts if they weren’t in reply to mine. I have previous experience and it’s not pleasant. He answered my very innocuous post and came straight out with the assertion that I didn’t understand how the Premier League works. It’s all there, you can read...

    Fully agree. I went to see a Celtic European match that was moved to Old Trafford because, if my memory serves me correctly, Celtic were banned from playing it at home. In those days there was a certain amount of camaraderie between Celtic and United fans so we were supporting Celtic. It was...

    Hopefully you will realise that I made the very same point myself on at least two occasions. You are simply incapable of conducting a reasonable discussion or even understanding a simple point made in a discussion especially if it differs even slightly from your own. FYI every discussion does...

    Quite possibly. Unless they just intended to join / enter by signing a letter of intent but didn’t actually join / enter. We will see. I doubt they weren’t aware of L9 so if it had gone ahead they must have been ready for some sanction. It’s certainly hard to believe they thought they would be...

    It’s a bit off topic but it’s often overlooked that Man U were asked not to take part, so kicking them out for not playing would have been harsh.

    As you well know, you said that by being part of the PL you are expected to take part in the other competitions whether you like it or not. So the Man U FA Cup scenario was legitimate. I’d say good effort, but it really wasn’t. TBH, I am tired of arguing with you. I hoped after last time it...

    Interesting. So when Man United didn’t play in the FA Cup didn’t they pick and choose then? No-one expected anyone to be thankful. You really need to stop making things up. And I am not defending them. I am simply arguing you can’t punish someone when they haven’t broken any rules or laws.
