    PS 4 or XBox One.

    I am buying a console for my children and access will be dictated by good behaviour and schoolwork. I haven't bought a new console since the PS2 and am torn between the PS4 (I might want to play PES, Metal Gear and Gran Turismo) and the XBox One (which seems to have much stronger parental...

    Ireland and Afghanistan now full ICC members

    Which means they have both been granted Test status. Good news. Best of luck to both of them, apart from when they are playing England! I assume Ireland's Test matches will be part of a 'British Isles Tour' whenever teams are coming over to play us. Would Afghanistan play at home, or in the...

  6. World Cup 2026 to feature 48 teams

    Looks like this has been voted through and is official. It looks like there will be 16 Groups of Three in the first round. Draws will be settled by penalties. Top two in each group go through to a 32 team knock-out round. So there's one extra knock-out game and a reduced group stage. I'm...

    Snowden-plea for pardon

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/sep/13/edward-snowden-why-barack-obama-should-grant-me-a-pardon I'm a huge fan of Edward Snowden's. I believe his plea for pardon should be granted by Obama but probably won't. Comments?

    Question Who's going to be better - jack or jack ?

    3 Years ago i watched a few games in which both Jack Payne and Jack Bridge were playing. I said to mates at the time the better player was Bridge. I likened him to Adam Lallana and bet them that in 5 years time Bridge would be playing at a higher standard of football than Payne. Now my...

  12. Donny summary ;

    The complete performance’ is how Darren Ferguson described this win, and it’s hard to disagree.Rovers were the better side in the first half; more fluid and open than their hosts, and went in at the break with a deserved lead. Nathan Tyson’s deftly weighted pass, slotted into the roof of the net...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...
  16. Who should be the next James Bond?
