    Football Kits 2017/18

    Not feeling these Nike kits at all. Don't like the gradients or the messy lines.

    What else is he supposed to say?

    Just count the number of times he talks about himself in the show and see if it breaks a new record.

    Here's one for the jolly folk who populate this thread: I believe they are about to record a Bombcast.

    What are you reading at the moment?

    Maybe reading Cloud Atlas first lessened the impact, I thoroughly enjoyed the book but I don't think it's Mitchell's best work. As for best debuts as a little aside, I think I've got to mention The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks and Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh.

    Celtic's first title of the current run was 2011/12, which is the season when Rangers imploded. Immediately before that point Rangers had won three in a row. The last time a club other than Celtic or Rangers won the title was 1984/85 when Sir Alex Ferguson's Aberdeen were having a purple patch.

    I think I'd be inclined to take a punt on Wilshere too, probably at the expense of Danny Wellbeck. If Jamie Vardy is in the squad and you want him playing off the shoulder of the last defender then you need someone who can play that long ball over the top. I'm sure there are capable players in the squad but none of it is particularly inspiring.

    I've just clicked it and it turns out that Fulham's seventeen year old teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon (who is only 17) is now 18. Happy birthday I guess, but he's ruined his career by not being seventeen any more.

    I've never been so tense watching a game of football. Could barely breathe at times. Probably dreadful for the neutrals, the teams totally cancelled each other out but I don't think Boro really looked like scoring in either leg, we kept clean sheets against them home and away in the league too. Johnstone should have been sent off for the handball outside the box, I'm pretty sure it would have been a red if it were down the other end. I do kinda wonder how we are going to do against Fulham, we've got experienced players who work hard and are well organised but there is not a lot of pace in the Villa squad and Fulham are fast and creative. I think it will be a more open game at Wembley though, and I'm glad we've got a couple of weeks to recover from tonight because some of the players ran themselves into the ground.

    The Boxing Thread

    Lomachenko blows my mind at how good he is right now. He's definitely a hall of fame boxer already and he's been a pro for about four and a half years. I thought he'd beat Linares but I didn't realise that he'd be giving up so much physically until they were in the ring together, I didn't hear the one the night differences (I watched a Russian stream) but it woudn't surprise me if there was a full stone between them. I presume there is money in the Linares rematch and there has been talk of fighting the winner of Garcia vs Easter which would unify the division. If he unifies at 135 it will be interesting to see whether he goes up again, people who have won titles in four or five different divisions tended to get the first couple in when they were in their early 20s and still filling out, right?

    Hamburg have been lucky to survive this long if truth be told. They've almost been relegated every season for about five years and it was always going to catch up with them. I'm sure they'll bounce back.

    That's kinda what I'm hoping for because I think Fulham in full flight are a better team than we are but they must be gutted not to have gone up automatically.

    It's not intuitive really, and the newspapers get a cheap story out of disruption but I did a couple of years in a ticket office at a railway station in the 90s so I'm well versed in explaining engineering works.

    Bank Holiday weekends are the best time to do engineering projects if truth be told. You don't bite the hand that feeds you and commuters are the lifeblood of the railway, so you close things when they wont be affected. Mrs Miggins making her annual trip to see the grand kids in Lancashire or a bunch of football fans who make it to London twice a year will complain but it's logical they are the ones who get hit hardest with the disruption.
