    Poor infrastructure in sport

    While it was generally a decent weekend of Lions and boxing I watched a fair bit of other sport this morning. It is not just football with poor referees. The Lions referee was shocking. One of the judges scored the Manny fight 117-111. You have to ask whether 3 is enough. Scrums in rubgy league...
  9. Air strikes in Syria

    The US have launched a missile attack on a Syrian air base. May and Fallon agree with this action, not sure about Corbyn. This is different to the standard attack on the ME as Syria has the backing of Russia and China so does have the possibility to escalate. After the WOMD lie in Iraq, I...

    Match of the Day - Chelsea

    I don't normally watch MotD but it was on BBC1 this morning and I watched a bit. The match that really caught my eye was Chelsea v Everton. I have no love for Chelsea at all, but from the highlights shown they were absolutely awesome, Hazzard and Costa especially. When players are in that sort...
