    World Cup 2018

    I enjoyed that result more than most after the shit I was getting for England not winning between 35 mins and 90+1 yesterday. I did fear a late equaliser. Can’t even beat Senegal.

    481. 500 was most definitely on until last 4 overs.

    Lucky. But need luck. Especially when ref is wildly inconsistent for what constitutes a penalty.

    Very lacklustre now.

    Going of their pen that’s 2 stone wall pens against Kane and a possible 3rd when trippier was blocked off.

    I’d lean towards cheating but if he’s acted within the rules it’s most definitely against the spirit/etiquette and as such leaves his reputation in tatters even if the rules cover him. Hits a putt that’s heading off the green, decides it’ll take him more than 2 shots to get back so hares after it to whack it back and suck up the punishment because it was preferable to ending up where he started.

    Far from it. At the time I assumed it was frustration in the heat of the moment but nope he knew there was a 2 shot penalty and made a calculated decision that where the ball was heading it would cost him more than 2 shots. “Took advantage of the rules as best I could”. https://www.foxsports.com/golf/usga/video/1257451075972?amp=true

    World Cup 2018

    Since 1986 won 2. (1986 L 1-0 vs Portugal, 1990 D 1-1 vs Ireland, 1998 W 2-1 vs Tunisia, 2002 D 1-1 vs Sweden, 2006 W 1-0 vs Paraguay, 2010 D 1-1 vs USA, 2014 L 2-1 vs Italy) Considering every game other than Italy was very winnable that’s a pretty poor record.

    https://youtu.be/k9REb8MIL8s Bizarre scenes from forest gump yesterday. For a game that pretty much prizes etiquette over all else odd to watch a professional in a major championship do something I’d do in frustration on a crazy golf course.

    I’d settle for beating Tunisia and Panama.

    I’m fairly sure Jennings isn’t in the ODI squad and as such available for Lancs. Either way someone has to step up. I’m guessing Jones maybe Croft will come in for livi but the former is another one with more question marks over him. If weren’t so threadbare I wouldn’t play Hameed for the foreseeable future but the issue is he gets demoted to the 2nd xi scores 100 then can’t get into double figures for 1st xi. Good news is Moeen is definitely unavailable as is Joe Leach who will be a big loss for them. In a 9 day period relegation will become clearer as play Worcestershire 20th-23rd and then Hampshire 25th-28th.

    I fear the only way lancs can stay up is at the expense of those two. Quite the bum fight down there. Lancs play Worcestershire next week but will be without livi and Parkinson as they’re with the bloody Lions. Lancs have serious batting issues. Some pretty rank averages: Jennings 37, Davies 19, Hameed 5, Livi 18, chiv 20 Just can’t have so many of the top order averaging under 20 and expect to stay up. Vilas has a credible average of 48 but that’s largely due to a 235* and he hasn’t scored a 50 in other innings. Once again consistency comes from the lower order with Clark and mennie 38 and 37 respectively.

    Not excusing some dozy running, dreadful bowling and shots from England but in whatever sport you care to think of Scotland will raise their game 1000% vs England. That lad McLeod can’t even get a game in a poor Durham side 140* today. If England could raise their game to anything like the same levels as they do vs us we’d win every game in every sport.
