  1. I think they are talking about a one off test next summer when India are over for white ball cricket. India didn't wanted the this test after the Oval test, they had wanted it as the first test, but the ECB would not agree to move it that due to the new Hundred competition.
  2. apparently there is a dispute re the result of the test, the ECB are claiming a walkover and India are claiming it as a cancelled test, it is down to the match referee, Chris Broad to decide the result. from cricinfo "It is understood that the ECB are still pushing hard for this match to be considered a "forfeiture" - ie, India declining to play - because they fear that their insurance payments for the match may not apply if it is considered a bilateral "cancellation", especially given that India's squad returned a full round of negative tests on Thursday, so it is not a straightforward Covid cancellation."
  3. correct England win game as walkover as India are unable to field a team due to Covid
  4. my guess is a 2 disc set. 1 disc best version of songs sequenced into a live concrt, 2nd disc documentary with some versions of songs not on 1st disc.
  5. This could damage the British Isles bid for the 2030 World cup, hosting the Semi Finals and Final was meant to show the rest of the world how well Britain can host a major tournament, somebody at UEFA may advise British Isles not to bid, or refuse to support such a bid.
  6. Gutted. The theory of bringing on 2 penalty takers in 120 minute is good, shows thought by the manager, however in practice maybe the players were not feeling part of the game. The behaviour of England fans in the last couple of games has let the country down against Denmark abusing Women and children today storming the turnstiles and getting in without tickets, pitch invasion. Hopefully the fans in the pubs will behave themselves, that extra pint that the government let fans have won't lead to violence.
  7. What is the rule if say the goalkeeper misses the ball because he has a laser shone in his eyes? is it a drop ball? is it just unfortunate and play on? can the VAR review the situation? Does anybody know the rules, my guess is possibly a drop ball if ref sees it or play on if the ref does not.
  8. From the BBC website Bruce Springsteen The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show Bruce Springsteen, The Boss, chats to Zoe about his latest series of shows for BBC Radio 2. From My Home To Yours is recorded at Bruce's home in New Jersey in the USA and features records from the Boss’ own collection. Each of the hour long programmes are themed and feature collections of songs to do with the radio, with the relationship between bands and their fans, with lawyers, guns & money and a special mix after a hard working week. The original four-part series ran from through July into August 2020 and in that first series, he had one show dedicated to cars, one to songs that reflected life in lockdown and another where he was joined by his wife and bandmate Patti Scialfa. Since releasing his debut Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. in 1972, Bruce Springsteen has released 20 studio albums, many of with his backing band, the E Street Band. His first major brush with fame came with the release of his third album Born to Run in 1975, which received wide spread critical acclaim and sold some 6 million copies. He has sold more than 150 million records worldwide and more than 64 million albums in the United States, making him one of the world's best-selling music artists. He has earned numerous awards for his work, including 20 Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, an Academy Award and a Tony Award.
  9. There is an issue with what the laws say and how they are implemented. On sky news they used to have a slot called Ref Watch where things like this were looked at and his answer whenever a penalty like this or even more obvious was not given the answer was "not enough for me".
  10. With crowds back in stadiums home advantage is massive. in an empty stadium or a neutral ground Italy would be favourites, home advantage I think England should win.
  11. This country has gone mad, scenes of people jumping on roofs of buses "celebrating" are acceptable, I feel sorry for people on the buses who are trying to get places work/home etc, what would previously have been considered football hooliganism is now normal behaviour.
  12. It was a home team decision.
  13. i think Alf Ramsay may have done that before.
  14. Euro 2020 is being blamed for rise of covid amongst males in Scotland Behaviour expert Prof Stephen Reicher has suggested that men meeting up to watch Euro 2020 is behind the rise.
  15. Does the contact come up on an app on the players phones? Did the England players have their phones turned on? when the players are training they probably leave their phones in their lockers.
  16. The rules appear to be: When an offside decision is being deliberated, VAR must choose the frame which proves with certainty that the ball has been touched. If Frame A shows the boot not touching the ball, then VAR must select the next one in which the ball has definitely been touched. maybe they should give the attacking team the benefit if the doubt and say that the player must be offside in the frame prior to the ball being touched AND the frame after the ball being touched.
  17. The ball in that photo is off the ground. when the ball was kicked it was on the ground. So that photo does not show a player being offside at the time the ball was kicked, it does show a player in an offside position shortly after the ball was kicked.
  18. I am not sure what was wrong with either try. A knock on becomes a knock on once the ball touches another player or the ground. the next player that the ball touched was behind the player who dropped the ball. The other try if the wide players our out of position that is there fault. the water carriers were still on the pitch, they were not interfering with play. the ref said time on so the Welsh player was entitled to play the ball. There is a lack of knowledge of the rules ny the BBC commentators/analysts, somebody should have put the laws on the screen.
  19. Do American police wear cameras? Do American police work in pairs? If there is video evidence then it should be obvious whether he was in a fit state to ride his bike. If there are two policemen and they stick to the story as stated Bruce could be in trouble, it may not be only alcohol but perhaps prescription medication or underlying health issue. The fans who had the selfie taken, presumably the police will have spoken to them.
  20. Nebraska box set no, rerecording the songs with full orchestra and a few tracks added from the Wild the Innocent and the E street Shuffle would. He has been doing his radio show so maybe a covers album of blues songs or Gospel songs, or other songs he has played on the show.
  21. Christmas Album. Nebraska box set including Nebraska with a full orchestra. Tracks 2.
  22. It shows a lot of strength on Garry's part to turn around and tell Bruce no. I wonder if any of the other members thought they should not be playing but did not want to say no.
  23. To me, lyrically the song is an updated version of Dancing in the Dark, musically it could easily have been on the Western Stars album.
