Re: Cycling

Froome wins a stage, the Beeb goes nuts, then he has loads more time put into him. Hah.

I reckon Yates will just about lose the pink jersey on Tuesday's TT, but if he can keep his form, should regain whatever defecit (which should be small) in thr big mountains next weekend.

It lacks midfielders full stop. I suppose Delph and Young can also cover further upfield, but I'm struggling to see why he's taking 6 full backs. Not that it will make much difference.
We're going to play two on each side.

I guess Kean had no impact on the club after all :D

The great thing is we can see what the impact is over the next 12 months - result!
Because obviously my statement was binary.....

Quite a few of those weren't good enough for the Championship a season ago...
...with poor managers. Hard to say what they will do now they have had some half decent leadership for another 12 months.
This.
You're both kidding yourself about the impact that managers have on the game.

Could the preseason pressure on Froome and Team Sky be finally showing?
It's more likely that he's not been able to take his drugs medicines while under heavy scrutiny...

Re: Cycling

Yates so far looking very strong in this year's Giro; pink jersey and now a stage win.

Re: Blackburn Rovers, Season in Review- D3D4football.com

A positive article from Waco about a positive outcome to the season. A lot said too about the players who made the season a success. Several of them brought in by Tony Mowbray namely Dack, Downing and Smallwood and on loan Armstrong, Chapman and Payne. But what about about Mowbrays signings that di...

That was when he was still a young pup! Now, he's clearly not worth 6 million, but wants to leave the failure that is the Chinese money pit and recut his teeth in English football.
I didn't know Liege was in China.
Tianjin is though.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery
