  1. I would if it was on somewhere normal but it's on some channel I haven't got. I'm watching the golf and looking around football index. I've just bought 10 shares in Said Benrahma
  2. I am a little uncomfortable with my material being used in this way.

    The Women's World Cup

    You could say the same about all sports but football. I doubt men's cricket or rugby get over 6m viewers very often, they seem to get plenty of media coverage. The US Open golf is currently the top story on their website, I like golf but no way it would get more than 6 million viewers if they had live coverage, which of course they don't. Remember Grandstand? Women's football is hugely popular and high quality compared with the most of the stuff they used to dedicate six hours of their Saturday to each week. I think it makes perfect sense for the bbc go big with women's football. They've not got the rights to much live 'proper' football, or sport generally. It must be relatively cheap, it's a growing sport, with the potential to get much bigger. If they keep promoting and covering it I can see it getting pretty big. Give it decade or two and it'll be the country's number two sport. Something to look forward to there Savo......

    Well, sadly Bowen's no longer available. Davidson or Tarbuck? What a choice. I suppose a change of name would be worth considering. Russ'll Fix it?

    Forest 2019/20 thread

    All managers say they want to play an attacking attractive style. I can remember Megson coming out with that when he first came in. Really? As opposed the the great signings we normally make? I don't see how he could possibly make things worse. Even if O'Neill made the worst five signings of his entire career all in this one summer window it'd still be better business than usual for Forest. This is like 'Jim'll Fix It' coming back with Russell Brand as the host and someone going "I'm fightened to death the damage Brand could do to the programme's reputation"

    The Women's World Cup

    I'll be following it. I watched a bit of the France game and had the England game on in the background. They could do with a highlights programme but there doesn't seem to be anything. If they had a 30-60 minute programme each day with the goals from each game and a bit of info on the main players and teams I think a decent number of people would watch it, but I can't see many people watching 90 minutes of Germany playing China or whatever. The standard of keeping is very low but that's partly just a size problem. It makes sense to have smaller goals in the women's game although that's really just a credibility issue, for entertainment's sake I suppose it makes more sense to keep them as they are.....

    Reasons why you HATE the modern game...

    Something else about offside and VAR that annoys me is how on tv they'll show a still image of the incident and the commentator will go "It's close but he's just off" or whatever and everyone accepts that as the correct decision, but often that picture hasn't really proved anything. Yes, he's in an offside position in that image but we can't clearly see the exact point the pass is made. Unless you can show a picture going frame by frame where we can see the exact moment the ball is passed at the same time as the defenders' positions it's meaningless. And often it's not even possible to see the point the ball is played and the position of the defenders from the same angle. On sky they sometimes wheel out that thing where they freeze the picture and convert it into a 3D image and can then move all around it looking from any angle. Now, if they're using this every time then I suppose at least it's possible but I'm pretty sure they're not. At the World Cup we saw the picture VAR was using and it was just the same as the tv pictures with lines drawn on it. So not only is it annoying and intrusive, I'm not convinced it's even possible to measure offside with 100% accurately to such a small degree.

    Obviously it's about time someone from the club started listening to me but I'm surprised they've acted this fast.....

    I thought VAR was supposed to be used for correcting 'clear and obvious' errors, has that been abandoned now and they're just going to use it for everything? First there was a clear Portugal penalty ruled out so they could give a really dubious one that the ref initially ignored at the other end, and then a goal in the women's game ruled out because soemone might have been half an inch offside. This isn't making things better is it? I could live with it if it was to stop someone getting away with an obvious dive or a blatant red card foul not spotted but this is just stupid

    Transfers wanted 2019/20

    He's an Iranian midfield player who was part of Karanka's mad dash to get as many people as possible signed up in the last few days of the window in last year's January sales. Standard Forest business - 30 odd, not played to any standard in 4 years or played at all in 18 months, came on a free, played a few minutes. got injured, never seen again, left in the summer.
