Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I was interested in the debate about Sterling. People fell into two camps, he was good at making defences work hard and pulling them here and there and was therefore doing well, or his distribution and decision making were crap. I think he did both, the problem for me is that the 2nd one takes prece...

Here you go Pete:

It appears there is much more to Conte's sacking than is at first apparent.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Maybe Croatia thought they were playing Serbia and the war was still on. They're really vicious players. It doesn't seem like football is football anymore. Nearly as bad as US gridiron. Fortunately I fell asleep 2 min. before the end of the first half so I wasn't disappointed until I read the sport...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Yes, England did better than expected, but ran out of steam. Our biggest failing for me, has been the final ball, thus turning dominating games into actual shots on goal. We allow teams back into the game and that has been a problem all tournament. Everyone has been raving about Sterling's last coup...

Re: Banyan Residence and Surrounding Area

I know nothing the rental income, but Banyon is just off the busy main road, becoming dual carriageway, between Pranburi and Hua Hin. From a noise perspective I'd go for one at the back of the resort.

Re: Requirements for retirement visa HuaHin

At the airport bus station there is a new (to me) notice from immigration reminding travellers about the 24 hour visa requirement. It's pinned against the refreshment kiosk.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Which Croatian players would be accepted at club level to replace their English counterparts? I don't there will be more than 1. Well Klopp has faith in Lovren! Then there's Rakitic of Barcelona. And obviously Modric, who would walk into any team, anywhere, right now. So, I would say two, both play...

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

The problem with the main group of tourists to Thailand being Chinese is what happens when they have their, 'been there and done that' moment?

Thailand might wonder where everyone has gone?

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I agree about Harry Maguire. He has been a real surprise for me and is looking very good. Let's hope he puts in another good shift against Croatia.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Depends on how you interpret regularly? John Stones only started 16 premier league games for City last season, with 2 appearances as a sub. He's scored more goals for England than his club. I think he has been outstanding so far. Lother Matthaus said he was the outstanding defender of the tournament...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I didn't watch the Brazil/Belgium game Game of the tournament so far! Neymar was relatively constrained when fouled. A couple of times, it looked like he was going to do the usual charade, but then thought better of it. He also did a blatant dive for a penalty, that was exposed by the cameras and V...

Re: AIS shown red card over footie coverage

I noticed last night, in red, before the programme started, a screen stating 'licensed' to show whatever, can't remember the wording. Maybe AIS got licensed? True did say that one of their concerns was any effects on them through unlicensed showing of material. These companies normally work together...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Ashley Cole still plays in the US.

Terry is doing pre-season training with Chelsea and will presumably find a new club for next season.

I hope for all of the QF's, they select referees of the right standard, unlike the one who did England's game yesterday. He was way out of his depth.

Re: How Do You Receive Your Thai TV?

To be honest, it's no different for me here than in the UK. When I moved out to the sticks I had to use sky for the first time as there wasn't a cable option. I was amazed when in bad weather, that the signal could go awol. In such cases, I just turned to terrestrial TV and carried on with what I wa...
