I just had to like this guy. Thorough professional who trains 39 hours a week, and is clearly the very best at the 100m breaststroke. Was watching an interview with him and his family, he dotes on his nan, who's his biggest fan. Broke another world record to win the Olympic Gold, and deserves a...
Great days golf today, plenty in contention. Jason Day is the winner for me, with Stenson close behind.
Is the IOC wrong to leave individual sports to decide on who can represent Russia in Rio? Doping was clearly rife across the board and it seems a farce that these cheats can put forward competitors who have managed to 'get clean' in time for the games. Should it not have been a blanket bann?
After Andy's phenomenal Wimbledon win it was good to watch Jamie play a key role in securing a 2-1 lead v Serbia in the Davis Cup with victory in the doubles this afternoon. Just one win away from a semi-final spot as Great Britain bid to retain the trophy. I didn't think the team had much of a...
What a talented kid he is. Rarely have I seen such an accomplished fighter. I wonder if his lack of power could limit his chances of making it to the very top. He reminds me of Ricky Burns, but I think he could go further than Ricky. He's the most exciting prospect in British boxing imo at a time...
Started tonight in Blackpool.
Kyle Anderson and Robert Thornton early winners.
Van Gerwen currently 7-0 up and Rod Studd comments that Caven must feel like he has run into a truck. Not his finest line of commentary given recent events!
Myself and a mate are looking at getting down to Troon for the final day of the Open next month. Neither of us have even been to a tournament before Not really sure what the script is. I had a look on their website and from what I gather there are tickets available for the Sunday, although in...
Massive well done to Kyle Edmund who has just beaten Dusan Lajovic in straight sets to take GB through to the semi finals and all without Andy Murray.
It's the first time ever that GB has won a World Group match in the Davis Cup since the World Group was formed in 1981.
GB now play Argentina...
Well done the yellow bellies, my second team behind the Hibees despite it being GAA, I've always found them to be like us in the sense that they regularly **** things up, seems they're on the up too.
I cancelled my Sky subscription the other week & it just ran out before the Open started...Can anyone PM with a decent stream please, I can't find one...
Hi fellow hibbies, i help run a Youth Football club in the North of Edinburgh and we are urgently looking for coaches, it would be ideal if you had experience but a love of football and the ability to deal with kids is enough to get started.
Sure it can be stresfull at times but its incredibly...
The draw got made for the 2016 Wimbledon Championships.
Andy Murray will play fellow Brit Liam Broady in round one, meanwhile James Ward will play Novak Djokovic.
Murray's possible route to the final will be;
1st round - Liam Broady
2nd round - Lu Yen-hsun
3rd round - Benoit Paire
Anyone ever done this?
My youngest has suggested we do it this year. I've never cycled anything like that distance, so I'm in 2 minds.
Anybody got any advice or experiences to pass on?
Nice 3 pager about our next potential world champ in this month's boxing monthly.
Some good stories about his pro debut in texas , with juan manuel marquez's trainer helping in his corner as cuts man. And how he would love to headline a show at Edinburgh Castle or Easter Road the home of...
So Anthony Joshua will make his first title defence against.....Dominic Brazeale - aka another unknown bum. Oh and it will cost £17 to watch AJ sparkle this bum within 2 rounds. Hopefully there's not too many of these type of fights before he steps in with a proper opponent.
Not seen a thread for this big congratulations to the big man wholly deserved he's had a few nightmares in the majors over the years,
And the USGA should hang their heads in shame shocking decision
Makes sense for Murray and good timing for Wimbledon.
Australia v poms and South Africa v Ireland later. Wales really pushing all blacks as I type but just gone behind 25-21 as I type with 16-17 mins left
First test of the summer kicking off in about half an hour, looking forward to this, I love having test match special on the radio in the studio. I've got tickets for a couple of days at lords in a couple of weeks.Think England will win the tests but not the 50 over games, not sure about the points...
A total legend. Played at senior level in 5 decades, and played with his sons at senior level. Unimaginable now. Got to speak with him about 5 years ago, what a gentleman. RIP Mr Hockey.
very sad to hear of the passing of YouTube sensation and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice at just 42. used to be amazed watching his street fighting videos before he made the transition into boxing and MMA, was due to headline Bellator in London in a couple of months too.. such a shame.
So Britain finally has its first UFC champion in Michael Bisping. Coming in as a replacement on 2 weeks notice he sparkles the champion in the first round.
Never been his biggest fan but got to respect his dedication and waiting till 37 to get his first title shot. The year of the underdog...
Seems like Andy has been on the drink for the last two days! 2 sets down v Stepanek.
Nowadays words like legend get used too easily but in Ali's case it didn't do him justice.
Had health problems over the years but doesn't soften the blow of his death.
Think today's going to be a day watching clips of his fights on YouTube.
Anyone any idea what time he fights tonight
What do you think?
Gary Anderson missing through illness so, Michael Smith plays twice.
Signed for May 7th. Should be a decent scrap.
Started today and the "Crucible curse" strikes again after Ali Carter has just beaten defending champion Stuart Bingham 10-9.
No first time champion has ever successfully defended their title the following year, since the World Championships moved to the Crucible in 1977.
I thought this would be a good time to start this thread after an informative weekend of NH racing.
What's the feeling on Sprinter Sacre ?
Faugheen 15/8 for the Champion Hurdle, value ?
Watching Motherwell pump THEM on Alba. I see a certain Mr Craig Thompson is sitting in amongst his pals!
Just been on SSN.
Big fight tomorrow on sky box office, anyone buying it? Who wins?
Masters time. Who's winning?
Found myself at the Emirates arena today watching the Glasgow Rocks vs the Sheffield Sharks. Atmosphere was fantastic and had a cracking time. Even managed to have a couple of buds at the game. Anyone else go to BBL games? Might start to go more often :thumbsup:
Scotland on the verge of a 2nd defeat of the week. Shocking batting display v Zimbabwe so far, 43-5.
WI need 20 from 12, India don't want to get Simmons out
Eubank v Blackwell. Don't really follow boxing but just caught a guy, present or former boxer, rooting for Blackwell in an interview and the same guy faffing around in the ring goading Eubank Snr. waving a belt in his face. Bit of a farce. Is boxing becoming the new wrestling in terms of the...
