    Arteta's managerial assist

    Where he assisted Arsenals 3rd goal in acting/thinking very quickly in running to a ball that had gone out of play over the touch line, picking up the ball, handing it to his player for a quick throw in. Something doesn't quite sit right with me, I don't think that this should be allowed.

    Dementia collection

    Well done to those volunteers who were out collecting for Dementia Care in the local area on match day Saturday. I really hope you filled those buckets. It's a horrible condition and effects a lot of families as well as the individual.

    A reminder last night.

    Why I enjoy watching the footie live. Pressed them from the off, never letting them settle. Bouncing around like a bunch of kids we were as the goals went in. Credit to the Sheff Utd fans in the north stand sat near us who took the loss with dignity, knowing their team had been well and truly...

    Paralympics-Wheelchair Rugby

    Wow, just an amazing Gold for those fantastic athletes. The effort and determination showed by both teams in the final will last with me for a very long time, end to end stuff. And to think the G.B team had to find their own funding.

    The Vietnam War- PBS America Documentary.

    Ken Burns, Lynn Novick's brilliantly directed examination of the war, and the politics behind it.

    FA Cup

    Marine get help from Liverpool and Everton with training facilities being made available, nothing unusual there. But the breaking of 'attendance' record by selling virtual tickets was a great story and well done to all supporters who purchased one. The FA Cup brings out the best stories ...

    Chris Rea songs

    Going home for Christmas and The Road to Hell, very apt at the moment. What a sad time those lorry drivers are having at the moment. I would have classed them as Key Workers, and as such should have had at least a test. I also appreciate that whilst they stay in their cab they pose very low...
