    Have to say...

    I loved the battles that used to take place on the pitch, especially in midfield - some of the players from the 80s could give and take physical challenges.
    Robson, Souness, McMahon, Reid, Snodin,...

    Think all the big signings this window have been good - Meslier, Costa, Rodrigo, Koch and Llorente all improve the squad.

    Summerville looks handy too.

    Rodrigo when up to speed will be quality...

    Prem doesn’t really care - it is the UEFA rules that impose restrictions but Man City demonstrated how shambolic they are.

    The prem is designed to bring in rich owners who will splash the cash.

    If Trump wins in the presidential election I suspect he may try to stand up to China and hold them to account. One of China’s generals wrote a paper seeking out how to release bio agents into the...

    The rules are odd - the Koch penalty in the Liverpool game was commented on and notwithstanding the rebound from the knee it was said to be a pen because of his arm position.

    Bad - the political world’s ability to understand statistics and science and then manage risk is frighteningly poor. The media in this country seems to have lost its ability to give objective...

    Great signing - he improves the quality of the squad hugely. Can see him and Koch being first choice (but for Cooper being skipper) once they get used to the system and each other.

    It’s silly season and it’s for a variety of reasons - click bait, players’ agents or clubs trying to generate interest and up a players value - look at Gvardiol - sure our interest meant RB pay much...

    Leicester looked good yesterday - looks like most of this league is on free scoring mode.

    RdP will hopefully sign this week sounds close.

    Suspect the balls will fly a lot faster too. Golf ball with no dimples goes about 1/3 to 1/2 the distance of the modern golf balls.

    Blades will be tough. Impressed with Bamford today - took his goal well and got right side for the pen. Run and cross for Costa was good too. He looks full of confidence.
