This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

Endless Carping?! I won’t say I was astonished by Jacob Rees-Mogg’s saying that people should stop complaining about the shortage of coronavirus tests and everyone should be praising the system instead as a ‘phenomenal success’. Apparently, everyone should heap praise on the government for having system in place at all, and ignore all the flaws… Continue reading This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

A Week in Review: 3rd- 9th August

European football makes its return. After more than 4 months, European football returned this week.

Johnson threw his lot in with Cummings and showed his contempt for the British public.

Boris Johnson has showed his true colours ever since the allegations against top aide Dominic Cummings breaking lockdown regulations came out. Every word out of the government has been so absurdly insulting to the intelligence and integrity of the British public that it put paid to the image that Johnson is some sort of champion… Continue reading Johnson threw his lot in with Cummings and showed his contempt for the British public.

Not many things can make us feel quite as much as sport can.

With there being no sport on at the moment for obvious reasons, I've been watching old matches and great moments back and it's brought to mind the emotions, the highs and lows that sport can bring.

The coronavirus outbreak may actually benefit football in the long run.

It's so unbelievably annoying that there is no football on at the moment. It feels like something intrinsic is missing from the weekly routine. You do your work for the week, you get to the weekend and you can relax and either go to the football or watch on tv. That's the way the week… Continue reading The coronavirus outbreak may actually benefit football in the long run.

Boris Johnson at last did something right. He deferred to the experts.

When Boris Johnson announced that Britain was effectively in lockdown on Monday, it was, for me, the first time he actually acted as a Prime Minister should. In this instance, he knew he needed to defer to the experts and take their advice on board.

What do football fans do with the season on hold?

It's funny isn't it, how integral something that supposed to be a past-time or a hobby can become? All sport is just a form of physical exercise with more objectives than simply the number of reps or sets you do. And hey, if you get a major kick out of what you are able to… Continue reading What do football fans do with the season on hold?

What does Football do now?

With the coronavirus pandemic currently playing havoc with pretty much every aspect of daily life, it was no surprise when professional football was suspended until April 3rd. And now that UEFA have confirmed the postponement of the European Championships until next year, the FA, Premier League and the EFL need to decide what they will… Continue reading What does Football do now?

Hamilton is on the verge of making F1 history. But that is the least important thing going on in the world right now.

The new season of Formula One was meant to return at the weekend with Lewis Hamilton on the verge of true F1 greatness. His recent run of World Championships means he sits on six, one behind Michael Schumacher’s record of seven. Many claim that Formula One is not exciting anymore, as Mercedes and Hamilton seemingly… Continue reading Hamilton is on the verge of making F1 history.
