    He can't play as a lone striker, but then again neither can Rhodes or Rochina. So, what will Kean do? It'll be one up front as usual. Goodwillie has looked dangerous in his past two sub appearances. Give him a chance, for once, and play him up front in a pair.

    Is that the sequel to BraveHeart?

    Hopefully, some good could come from such a tragic incident and those suffering in silence might be able to talk about these kind of issues. There is a huge amount of stigma relating to mental illness, yet the majority of people are likely to be affected by minor versions of it at some time in their lives. Despite the image of depressed teenagers, older people are more likely to suffer than younger. Even successful, handsome and married adults such as Gary Speed. Something like 1 in 5 of the population will suffer from major outbreaks, although this is probably well underreported as people would rather suffer than admit to it. Let's hope this can lead to the breaking down of some stigmas relating to this, and encourage greater attention. Let's not the death of such a personable, talented, famous man be in vain.

    Mental illness is one of the scourges of our society, and one of its biggest killers. It takes no account of wealth, job, fame etc. What a damn shame. RIP Gary Speed.

    It's crap. Not quite as crap as the last one, but crap nonetheless. The first film was a masterpiece compared to the last two. Still, people know what to expect. I went to see it as it was someone else's choice. They thought it was crap, too. You don't have to be a middle aged hack to see that.
  6. For a very interesting author, try Jeffrey Eugenides. Somewhat bizarre at times, but his "Middlesex" and "The Virgin Suicides" are both superb. Anyone know of any really good football books of the last couple of years?

    They lost 5-0 to Schalke, so...not too sure he can be classed as another "Shay Given" goalkeeping type who we slipped through our fingers...
  8. Harry Pearson is always excellent. His "The Far Corner", about football in the North East, was a delight. As was ´A Tall Man in a Low Land: Some Time Among the Belgians´

    I know how your wife felt. It was rubbish.

    Good report. However, wasn't it two seasons ago Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga? What do you think of the sacking? He might not have won that many, but he didn't actually lose that many either.

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    This article on the Barca site says the fee was 450,000 Euros A reasonable price for a young prospect. Will be interesting to see how he progresses.

    The Copa America receives next to no coverage on the big channels, which is strange as it is of a far higher quality than the African/Asian ones. Next July it is in Argentina, so should be more interesting than usual. As well as Brazil, the Argies, Paraguay and Chile from last year's World Cup, they have also invited Mexico and Japan (they always invite an extra two countries so they can have 3 groups of 4 teams). Quite why the BBC bids for Burkina Faso v. Mali or Algeria v. Cameroon in January (when it was played last year) when everyone is all preoccupied with the Prem I don't know. Not when it could be the likes of Brazil v. Mexico or Argentina v. Uruguay in July when there is no other football, I'm not quite sure why.

    Possibly. The original TV series was pretty crap, to be honest. It was certainly no classic, that is for sure. The movie was as good as the TV shows.

    The A-Team was quite good, I thought, funny at times and enjoyably forgettable. Rebelmswar - don't watch the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. I think that would finish off your those remaining remants of your will to live.
