Re: The OFFICIAL English and European Football (soccer) thread

I am starting to think this might be one of those seasons where a team nobody thought had a hope of winning the PL might actually do it. Maybe it might be worth putting a bet on someone like Everton to actually do it. Just imagine the Liverpool supporters if Everton had to do it. :lol: :twisted: Ev...

Re: Untrustworthy Saffas slink away from RC

There is 35 weeks until the Lions tour is scheduled to start. 9 rounds of European rugby, 24 rounds of English rugby, 6 Autumn internationals, and whatever happens with 2021 6N. How could anybody expect the Lions tour will go ahead as planned?

Tate has to start at 9, and it can't be JOC at 10. He is a hardy little bastard, but he cannot orchestrate a backline. Toomua at 10, JOC at 22. Simone will offset a lot of Toomuas limitations, and you're much more likely to get some fluency in the backline.

You'd be foolish to write off any of the older Irish players. All class, and they've had a huge break to rest their bodies that they've basically never been afforded before. I expect Sexton, Murray, and POM to return to something like their previous best after all this.

What he did was create an amazingly rich universe filled with intrigue. TBH if they made a TV show about the goings on of Tom Bombadill I would definitely watch it. As long as they stick to the high fantasy style and don't try to make it something with more mass appeal, it'll be good.
