  1. Rio 2016 Olympics

    There will be no Russian track & field athletes at Rio.....I can sense a Russian boycott of the games on the cards here. Shame, the Olympics is supposed to be above politics, but if they can't win fairly, then what else can you do?
  2. Flying

    Anyone feeling nervous of late about taking to the air? I know it's statistically the safest form of travel, but what with the latest EgyptAir (probable) disaster, and over the last few years the number of crashes/bombings/Russian-missile-strikes-pretending-to-be-Ukranian is really thinking that...

    'President Putin 'probably' approved Litvinenko murder'

    So says the Independent enquiry in Litvinenko's death of a few years back. Pretty strong stuff to explicitly name Putin as probably being involved. I doubt many will be surprised but the direct link in his death to the Russian President is unusual. No doubt our relations with Russia will see a...
  4. Turkey

    Turkey shoots down a Russian fighter jet on the Syrian border for breaching it's airspace. NATO says it will defend Turkey against Russia. Remember how we all celebrated the fall of the Berlin Wall and the split of the USSR? The world is closer to WW3 than ever..... :sad:

    Russian Plane crash now suspected bomb. What next?

    Wasn't sure whether to put here or in Politics forum. I'm starting to lose faith. The war on terror is 14 years old and I would argue that terrorism on a global scale is worse now than it was in 2001 Wiki is trying to tell me otherwise but I don't feel the world to be a safer place...

    Russian 5 Year Olds Escape From Nursery

    I think these two were born about 75 years too late. They would have been heroes during the 2nd World War. Guardian

    General Boxing Thread

    To save filling up the fight of the year thread with off topic stuff I thought I would start this. Interesting GBJ your views on AJ, I thought from what I've seen albeit he has had some pretty easy fighters but he looks the business and will go onto be one of the best heavyweights in the world...
  8. Russia

    So Russia sends two military aircraft (Bombers) near to Cornwell. Mr Putin had also flown two other bombers down the English Channel two weeks ago. It's letting us know that their bombers can easily reach the whole of Great Britain. There has also been Russian warships in our waters. Now I'm...
  9. Tangled up in Blue

    Are we "a small island that no one listens to" ?

    Are we "a small island to which no-one listens " as that Russian diplomat said at the G20? I've long thought so. Presumably the US won't be doing so now (at least in the short term)and Europe hasn't for some time...

    I wonder how long it will be...

    ...before people will get to the same place that I am in, which is a complete indifference about anything football related apart from the results of SUFC? Cricko's post yesterday about falling out of love with football is totally understandable, as was True Blue's response about not being so...

    Owners rights

    Saw this in the Mail on Sunday. The Russian wife of Bournemouth's part owner Maxim Demin stormed into the dressing room at half time to deliver a pep talk. Losing 1-0, the players sat shocked as Irena Demlin demanded a second half improvement. They went on to lose by the same score but she was...
  15. WWII in photos - incredible website

    http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/ww2.html I'm not a particularly big history/war buff, but this website is breathtaking. Just a few pics... Symbolic of the defense of Sevastopol, Crimea, is this Russian girl sniper, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who, by the end of the war, had killed a confrimed...

    Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

    The Lady Australian Prime Minister decided to open up a hornets nest.I actually think she makes some fair points. "It took a lot of courage for this woman to speak what she had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least she was willing to take a stand...

    Russian Roulette

    I've been thinking for quite some time about posting this and realise from the off that it may be dangerous for my health. But with [some] good cheer flying around the place I figure this is as good a time as any to get my head torn off. I'd also like to say that I don't pretend to be any sort...

    Russian Spy extradited..

    At first I wasn't bothered in the slightest but now I have to say was gutted when I found out this lady is being extradited... Is there no way the government can switch her for a Pitsea housewife? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/10620352.stm

  20. Arsene Wenger: The Gift and The Curse.

    Such is this success of the Arsenal Ethos under Arsene Wenger that those who question him are instantly vilified by the Gunner’s faithful and, believe me, they have a point. No other Premier League manager can boast an unbeaten season, or even claim to have attributed so much to the progression...
