Re: Manchester

The neo-nazi nutter who planted bombs in gay pubs in the 90s made the bombs himself without an accomplice. Please don't sign up to this 'lone Wolf theory'. That's what they want you to think and this myth is part of the problem. These guys are all part of a bigger network. Allowing people to believ...

Re: Manchester

I tend to agree with bazzaj that Saudi is the origin of a lot (but not all...) of the problems.

There is no way the US/UK will do anything though. Oil and arms sales are more important.

Re: Sky Sports

I heard about a revamp a couple of months ago but it was separate channels for F1, cricket, golf, 2 channels for football and rugby was going to be lumped into a separate "all other sports" channel with netball, WWE, darts and all the other sports they cover.

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

It is really very clever politics by the tories, grab the kippers by saying Brussels are cnuts and we'll fight them on the beaches etc. and grab the labour vote by stealing policies like energy caps and promising additional worker rights (rights which are unenforceable in tribunals...) However it is...

Re: Ulternative Player of the Season

Regardless of what Stockdale has proven this season, letting Scholes go is still a bad move. Bowe is a busted flush; Trimble is almost certainly waining; Charlie is out the door at the end of next season; and Gilroy's development has gone into reverse at an alarming pace. Stockdale and Lyttle aren'...

Re: RWC 2019

As far as I can tell, Europe 1 is likely to be someone like Romania or Georgia.

"Play-off" is between another European team who isn't Europe 1 (like Romania/Georgia, Spain or Russia) and third placed Pacific team (Fiji, Samoa or Tonga)

Re: RWC 2019

I've been to Japan years ago with work but would love to go back for a holiday. RWC 2019 looks like a good excuse.

Re: World Mental Health Day

Probably more appropriate in this thread than a rugby discussion. I seem to remember that when he was Bath, he was banned after an incident involving taking coke in a pub toilet then gatecrashing and getting into a fight in a party for another team so it doesn't seem his life was straightened out af...

Re: Rory Best: Our coaches are crap.......well nearly!!!

I don't think the debate is Steenson v PJ but wind the clock back 10 years and it would have been Steenson v D Hump in his final playing days and his form falling off a cliff, Adam Larkin and NOC... We did also let Ian Humph go to Leicester Tigers at a similar time IIRC ? I didn't think iHump was i...
