must be, even with the previous financial doping of PSG, there is no way can this be fitted within any interpretation of their income? Think, as with Man City in the UK, its pretty clear the oil club owners have just decided the rules are a minor inconvenience and if they all break it - who will do something about it? On past form not the national Football Associations and clearly not UEFA.

Obviously keeping up with the current tradition of Scottish teams in Europe.

Still proud of the English women's team despite losing in the semi. Will have a chance to cheer them on in November I think, when they take on Kazakstan in a World Cup qualifier. Game is being played in Colchester so might have a day out and catch the football as well.

Best wishes,
Steve

Ah, opening day of the season... This is why God invented Saturday afternoons...

Currently listening to Southend v Blackburn on radio. Southend 2-0 up at half time.

Football... such a dumb game.

Eastbourne 2 Braintree 3

Braintree come back from 2-0 down to take all three points. Life is good.

Good luck tomorrow Orm. Tough game away from home.

Unfortunately, it is not practical for a couple of reason. The main one is that the matches played in the US is in the middle of the night. The other is the high cost.

Despite the late time I used to watch a few matches of American Football every year. But then it became to popular here so they put it in a expensive, minor, channel. And the only thing they got is in the middle of the night. And just a few months a year. Maybe one should buy it over the internet and watch on the computer. But then I need a new computer. If it is even available that way. Anyway, to much effort for just a few matches a year. Although I do miss it.

And baseball is not popular enough. And I have no idea if I would like it or not. But I do suspect that I am not patient enough.

As an alternative you could always try supporting Malmo....

Sorry I cannot honestly answered this question without some prejudice...
They are trying to be the fourth team in Portugal.
Obviously, every enlightened mind knows that CF Belenenses is the fourth team.

The Portuguese league will start tomorrow.

Does anyone here use the Togga app for EPL fantasy football?

I am in a few leagues including the Men in Blazers league which is a perfect XI format and is great fun.

A good start - unlike Plymouth (but a win and a draw for Exeter and Torquay).

Anyways, one week to go to the Premiership and, having sold Kyle Walker, we have lost Kieran Trippier - or Trippiay as he is known on some channels . Let's hope its not serious - but never a good sign when your player appears with crutches and a boot .

I hate football.

Thank you.

However, I already found out how good they are.

We need all the luck we can get. Especially since we have had a tough couple of weeks and not been either lucky nor successful.

Since our Fantasy Premier League folded last season, I thought I would set up a simple League were we only have to predict the results of the PL matches.
It's the same system that had been used for the European Championship 2016.

Would like to see some of you football aficionados join the league and have some fun.

Yes, it was unnecessary to concede that goal. But after making 4 goals they didn't take Sirius seriously.

Tougher match expected in a couple of days.

I would like to participate but I am certain that I would fold after a month or so. Therefore I will abstain.

Yeah I gave up. I thought the league might be a bit of fun and a chance for some good cross-border footy banter but it never really happened so....

Well a new stadium is due to appear nearby but yes the tell-tale cracks are due to appear in early November, with the whole building being condemned shortly thereafter.
