    Decent Bag

    Weirdly I watched half a game at Benidorm FC from my hotel room balcony on Thursday. He missed crossed with the AR twice but it didn't seem important after a few beers!

    I'd do exactly the same plus at least 5 mins at half time and a few final words before we set off home!

    New fitness test

    We were at the far end of the track and didn't hear the beeps first time and neither did the Marshall next to us. The Marshalls raised their hand on the 5 second beep after that and dropped it when it was time to run each time. The audio played up a couple of times too but the organisers did a...

    New fitness test

    I think the cooper test is just physically harder. It's certainly mentally harder. In the new test you spend more time resting (slow walking) than running. And the run isn't exactly a sprint. It's simply easier.

    New fitness test

    First time I've been in about 20 years. It was my Mrs turn to choose this time unfortunately.

    New fitness test

    Did mine this morning. I didn't think it was too difficult. Much easier if you work in a team. I think you could.possibly include both sprints within the test and have a longer walk afterwards. I'm going to celebrate at pizza hut later :)

    Hawk-Eye

    There wasn't. Many years ago you could use the red button to access player cam and watch an individual player. Sounds great but in reality you spend alot of time watching somebody walking around. Fan cam was better. They had a fan from both teams commentating on the game as an alternative to...

    New fitness test

    Mine was a pass but a little on the low side. I jarred my shoulder playing cricket 3 weeks ago so haven't done any training (giving it another go tonight after aborting my last attempt at a run last week). I shall use the tactics of being just behind the chap at the front and holding on for grim...

    New fitness test

    I hope you all find it easier to get s BP test. Managed to get one done at a supermarket pharmacy this morning but most told me to come back another time (and it was just obvious from the confused look on the staff members faces that the chances of me getting it done upon my return were slim at...

    The big match.

    So I'm sat here waiting for my partner to get ready (I could be some time). On BT Sport is the big match revisited 1975. Its fascinating to see how football, and in particular refereeing has changed down the years. Currently Coventry are playing Arsenal and there's a corner kick. The ref is...

    Level 4 promotion

    There was a Scottish commentator on the Europa League final who actually quoted law and explained it several times. It was very refreshing to hear from an ex player who clearly does.his research. Made a nice change from Walton anyway!

    Level 4 promotion

    It's the culture in football too imo. The referee is constantly questioned and thats bound to have an effect.

    Level 4 promotion

    I think we think roughly along the same lines. Theres no shame in not having particularly high aspirations but also wanting to be good at what we do. Equally, there's nothing wrong with being ultra ambitious and driven. We are all different ages with different ambitions and at different stages...

    Pitch Invasions - ruining it for their OWN players!!

    Such a shame that we are talking about barriers etc (right so in my opinion as somebody is going to get seriously hurt or worse soon in a football ground). We are going backwards in a sport and I never thought I'd say that following the success we've had in combating many issues at football...
