Will Chelsea be comfortable enough to play the waiting game?

It's fair to say that Chelsea haven't quite found their feet under Frank Lampard's management yet, but there are some encouraging signs. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have taken the opportunity given to them and turned in some great early performances to really stake a claim for regular first team football. Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho… Continue reading Will Chelsea be comfortable enough to play the waiting game?

So, to return sovereignty and democracy to the UK, we have to suspend the democratic body?

I'm sorry, what?! That is ludicrous, even more so the reasons they've given for doing it. Johnson and his government are insisting this is to do with the domestic agenda and not Brexit, which is so much bullshit I don't know where to start shovelling. This is clearly about trying to steamroller a version, any… Continue reading So, to return sovereignty and democracy to the UK, we have to suspend the democratic body?

They've also said repeatedly the Withdrawal Agreement is not open to renegotiation so the matter is closed. There… Continue reading Why do Brexiteers think the EU owe us anything?

Why did Disney remake The Lion King?

Money. That's why. They knew moviegoers would go and see this film just on the strength of the name alone. It carries on the recent Disney trend of remaking their classic animated films live-action or this case photo-realistic animation. After Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Pete's Dragon and Aladdin, The Lion King was the… Continue reading Why did Disney remake The Lion King?

With England's brave Lionesses falling in the semi finals of the World Cup, the sporting world now turns its gaze to the cricket field as Joe Root leads England's latest attempt to regain the greatest cricketing prize of all. The Ashes. My interest and enjoyment of Test Cricket was really first sparked in the summer… Continue reading Why I’m excited for the Ashes.
