    EFL Cup Third Round Games | 21/22 September

    And a free kick automatically when Bailly clutches his face as if that slight touch was anything significant.

    Wycombe (H) - EFL Cup R3 | Post-Match Thread

    Did anyone notice Akinfenwa swapping shirts with Foden, Sterling, Mahrez and KDB?

    My longest training long run, and my longest ever run completed today - 33km, or 20.5 miles, in 4 hours, 19 minutes. I'm very pleased with that. Could I add another 9km to this distance? Yes, I think so. Sheer determination will see me through on 10 October. I started at 7:30am, and it was...

    Clive Sinclair of C5 fame just died

    RIP Sir Clive. Remember the ZX80 and the ZX81, followed by the ZX Spectrum, in full colour. Well, a few more colors than the first two. Happy days. Many people took their first steps into computing using those simple machines.

    Calling fans in Highlands & Islands

    My son is on holiday in South Uist as I write, and we holiday in Mull every year. I would love to be able to join this supporters group, but I fear it may never happen.

    That's weird, yes! I ran 30km on Sunday 5th September, and was pretty tired after it. About 3 o'clock on Monday morning, I woke with pains in both feet, stretching up both my shins. It felt like cramp, but was on the front of my legs, not the muscle areas. No amount of stretching alleviated the...

    Media Thread - 2021/22

    I always think "mediocrity". Those CL pictures are a disgrace. It is blatantly obvious that this is a deliberate slur on City. The club should object to this sort of behaviour, no matter how petty it is. We should demand the same treatment as other clubs from our national broadcaster, who is...

    Ref Watch

    We can't really blame this on Taylor though, as he was busy with United v Newcastle this weekend. Paul Tierney was our referee.

    I'm not a big fan of running in the rain, hence the jacket. It made no difference though - in fact if anything, it was a hindrance, with the wet fabric sticking to my arms, and my shirt just as wet was if I hadn't worn the jacket. I'll not wear it again. Yeah, I'll prepare well for next...

    My running week has seemed a little easier, probably because the weather has cooled down slightly. I did the Warrington Parkrun yesterday, and my long run today. It was 20km, and I was a little gutted to get home and discover my long run should have been 22.5km. No matter though, it was fairly...

    Ref Watch

    Paul Tierney was promoted to the FIFA list of referees in 2018. I wonder what the criteria is for this. Is it continuous outstanding performance as a referee, or is it by nomination by the local association? I suspect it is the latter. There is no way Tierney is one of our best referees. To me...

    Nearby, Lymm. A friend is in the same starting group, but he'll finish at least an hour before me. I may go with him, and get the wife to collect me.

    How does that work though, with potentially 32,000 runners? Is it safe to leave phone and wallet, or just towel, shirt, Mars Bar and protein shake?
