Re: The Rugby Thread

Quite a shock. :( Sam Warburton: Wales and British & Irish Lions captain retires from rugby https://www.bbc.com/sport/rugby-union/44869719 Not really Pete, it was expected - at least in Wales. The guy has been knackered physically and thought a year off would work - was always 50/50 at best. I beli...

Re: History Challenge

Well, something I discovered today...... Without doing the usual "Googling", what was President Mandela's first name (originally, i.e. NOT Nelson) and how did he come to be known as Nelson?

I was waiting to see the news that after the match the English fan stayed and cleaned the stadium just like the Japanese did. Have not found that piece of news. :wink:

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Have to say, even as a Welshman I'm disappointed England didn't get through to the Final. As most have said, I think the better/more experienced team won on the night though. As an "occasional armchair fan" i.e. the big tournaments, I enjoyed what I managed to see of this World Cup. I also think thi...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Obscene amount of money especially for a player in the twilight of his career, he's 33 ffs. :shock: :? These kind of deals have ruined the game. :| Apologies - moving from the World Cup thread a little (or then again many transfers being discussed due to it), but he's on a 4 year deal making him 37...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

probably as much to do with shirt sales and endorsements as playing time. Not sure if you're referring to the player or the club there arcadianagain , but as I understand from the news, the 500K is a "basic salary" :roll: and he'll earn a fair bit more from endorsements and sponsorship. Added to th...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

France v Belgium, great match, both teams really went for it and the referee let them get on with it, in the main. No Latin American histrionics or cheating. Well, as most know I'm not the biggest fan of the game, but have to admit I do enjoy the knockout stages of big tournaments where teams actua...

Well, I see Ronaldo has signed a £500K a week contract with Juventus....... Truly obnoxious money (and yes I'm jealous)!

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

One BB will no doubt "enjoy". Quote from the Guardian (UK): - "Pep Guardiola drew a little heat last season by calling Spurs “the Harry Kane team”, but England are in effect the Harry Kane Nation, their captain not just the best No 9, but the best No 10 too, best crosser, best passer near goal and o...
