Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Queuing to get into the South Bank and everyone ...

Four week break before starting 2020/21 season to the following format. Premier league 38 games as usual (no European matches)* Each...

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

I find it noticeable that very few recent or current players feature in the best elevens. I wonder why. Oh, I do know the answer to that of course.

Then I concede. Right. I used to drink (underage) with John Minty Murray. Beat that. I concede. I didn't drink underage, and only for a few years when old enough.
