Nice to see that Kyle Walker has been taking lockdown seriously as he organised a party with a couple of ladies of negotiable affection. Putting more than his money into the local community.

1998 is the complete World Cup. The kick off times were ideal, though England v Tunisia at 3pm on a working day was probably a nightmare for many, there were tons of great games, the best players in the world were out in force and there were notable stories galore. Brilliant stuff.

Personally I think the best World Cups in terms of kick off time are those in the Americas. I remember that for Brazil 2014 we had kick off times of something like 6pm, 8pm and 11pm which meant I didn't miss any due to work etc. Even in Europe there are always 3pm kick offs which can make it awkward and don't get me started on 2002. Fucking waste of a good tournament that was.

Echo the love for USA 94. The first World Cup I can properly remember, we had the wall chart up at primary school and everything and the headteacher insisting we filled it in as a class before any thought of some actual schoolwork.

Stevenage's ground really is called The Lamex.  The wording is huge.

Something (a few years old) here for you @Keith Houchen

https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2016/may/20/golden-goal-keith-houchen-for-coventry-city-v-tottenham-1987

In fact, the Guardian Football content over the last few weeks has been tremendous, well worth keeping an eye on if you don't already.

Thanks. That was a cracking read!

The bit about John Sillett saying that football is supposed to entertain by "flair, passion and skill" tickled me.

Everything you love.

Its bollocks isn't it? We're all just as entertained by our sides scoring after the goalie lumped it up and a melee in the penalty box. 

I'm the furthest thing from a football purist you could get. Never saw the enjoyment in Barca's tiki taka days and passing the ball for no real reason.

What the article didn’t clarify was he meant Flair as in diving face first to the floor, passion by begging the ref to brandish cards and skill in hoofing the ball accurately into the box.

Charles Reep, the greatest footballing theorist of all time had it right. Goals come from a team touching the ball 4 tines or less - So route one please.

Thinking about route one always reminds me of this. (6.55 in)

Completely agree. It's all about what you individually enjoy isn't it?

One of the best goals I ever saw* live was Paul Robinson against Watford

*I say I saw it but if I'm being honest, as it was a fairly innocent free kick outside our own box, I was fiddling with a bag (not a woman) I had with me and didn't realise he'd actually been the one that kicked it.
