Sad to hear of the death of Dean Jones at the age of only 59.
I wasnít into cricket seriously until I spent three months travelling in Australia in my late teens. In Australia, depending on where you stay, your ethnic background etc, you might be into Aussie Rules, rugby league, rugby union,...
Just finished watching this having recorded it on the TiVo box about 6 weeks ago. First half covers the rise of England's Test team to number one in the world and the second half deals with the mental side of the game. It's a fascinating watch. It was on BBC2 but, doesn't appear on the iPlayer...
Andy Murray starts his tournament against Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan. The match has not long started and is live on Amazon Prime.
Tremendous comeback from England to take the first game by 2 runs.
Anyone tried calculating their handicap using the new system? Iím in a really long poor run of form. Frightening.
Its astounding how much Friday night rugby has taken off in Glasgow. I attended their match v Munster a couple of weeks ago and was impressed with both the set up and general atmosphere at Scotstoun stadium. The game was a total sell out and match tickets are becoming increasingly difficult to...
Looking at taking a few golf lessons and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for Lothians/Edinburgh area. I've never had a lesson before so wouldn't know where to start.
Andy Murray's playing his first competitive tennis for 9 months just now as he plays Francis Tiafoe at the Cincinnati Masters.
Currently 5-5 in the first set, it's live on Amazon Prime if anyone's interested.
Anyone been watching so far?
It started yesterday with some fans in attendance but from today it's behind closed doors after the UK government banned spectators from attending any live events.
They haven't followed football's lead by playing fake fan noise so it's a bit weird just having...
Off to a flyer with the games tonight. All the games were decent, but the final match between MVG and Klassen was the highlight. There was no handshake at the start or at the end, they obviously donít like each other and MVG confirmed that in his interview. Klassen could and should be a top ten...
Now that all the places have been taken up I Thought it would be better to start a new thread with this.
The Draft: The draft will be an offline draft made on this thread and i will input the players into the appropriate teams once the draft is complete. I think the draft will be the most...
Anyone else watching the BBC's greatest men's Wimbledon finals in history?
2008 final on just now between Federer and Nadal - in my opinion the greatest tennis match ever played.
Can't believe it was 12 years ago now!
Died aged 66.
Bit before my time in a playing capacity although heard him plenty of times as a commentator.
It didn't sound good yesterday when it was announced he was suffering respiratory problems and had to be placed into an induced coma.
Having critisised other countries for making playing too restrictive, Djokovic organised his own tournament and has ended up with the virus along with three others who took part. :rolleyes:
Got one coming this week , Soft tip dartboard that cost £300 ! Never played soft tip before so looking forward , You can play against folk online as well as the computer very handy in these testing times when you can't leave the house
Anyone on here got a Nexus dartboard ?:kdarts::kdarts:
As the title suggests. I may argue the toss with anyone who refutes that Jonty Rhodes was the best ever fielder.
I guess there is a difference between slips and other positions. Rhodes wasn’t a slip and Alastair Cook probably deserves a mention, but slips have a certain advantage, in terms of...
The Ashes 2005 : The Greatest Series, well worth a watch on All4.
I know there's an ongoing thread on the go but this deserves a thread of its own.
He has just won the title in Antwerp against Stan Wawrinka, coming from a set down to win in three sets.
I've actually no words to accurately describe how impressive this guy is and the way he has come back from...
See details below.
A scottish rugby legend and a guy I had the pleasure of knowing has sadly passed away.
Michael Smith has just hit a 9 darter.
I think Wales will win it again this year.
Iíve never really seen a thread on here about the greatest American sport. :wink:
I absolutely love the baseball and itís my ambition to go to a game at some point. Wrigley Field would be my ultimate destination, but I think Iíll have to compromise and head to somewhere where I can take in a...
England taking a pumping at the start of the first game, poor fielding not helping either - SA 68-1 from 6 ovs.
England really need a change of plan when the wickets start tumbling, seeing out the 50 overs is surely a must, looks highly unlikely today. Currently 131-6 from 28 overs.
Killed in helicopter crash
First Grand Slam of the new decade but some things haven't changed.
Djokovic 3-0 up against Thiem first set.
A Scotland legend retires. He always seemed so reliable to me, who only watches Scotland matches.
The 34-year-old Clermont scrum-half is second on the all-time points list for Scotland with 714. Laidlaw has led the national team 39 times, more than anyone else, and becomes the third senior...
Iconic figure from my childhood:
Was working a late shift today so had the pleasure of being able to watch Andy Murray kick off Great Britain's Davis Cup campaign this morning with an extraordinary win. He may only have been up against the world no 179 but he was out of sorts and the Dutch lad played out of his skin. The way Andy...
Diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Heartbreaking only 48 or so with young family.
What a player he was.
I see this twat has been fined and given a suspended ban for his gamesmanship.
Hopefully it brings him down a peg or two. Erse that he is.
The t20 World Cup qualifier started in the UAE yesterday. Scotland managed to lose to Singapore by 2 runs in a bit of a shock. 6 teams go through and I think Singapore beat a full member not long ago but not an ideal start. Currently 36/1 after 5 against Kenya, Coetzer our but Munsey is the man in...
Andy Murray has declared himself fit to play ,drawn against Nick Kyrgios in 1st round . Good to see him finally back . Tough draw getting Kyrgios on his comeback
Anyone else on this forum go out to wet a line now and again?
Ryder Cup golfer Brian Barnes has died aged 74 from cancer after a short illness. He was best known for beating Jack Nicklaus twice in a day during the 1975 match against the United States.
Always remember his reputation for drinking on and off the...
Great performances for gold by Dina Asher-Smith and Katarina Johnson-Thomson.
As if summer couldnít get any better, we donít just have a cricket World Cup, we have an Ashes series!!! :greengrin
The CWC was outstanding IMO, barely a dead rubber in the previously maligned group games, some cracking head-to-heads as well, especially in the closing stages. The semis were...
Good stuff from the ladies. Europe unlucky not to have a better lead at the end of day one. Europe 4.5 USA 3.5
In no particular order although number one is undoubtedly football (and has been been since the day I was born :greengrin)
