    Ray Wilkins RIP

    When I was a teen he used to stand behind me and my mates on the Railway End at Stockport for Friday night games. Always good with a bit of friendly banter with us spotty ones.

    Australian Cheating at Cricket

    The big unanswered question is which bowlers were in on it. You don't mess with the ball and forget to mention it to those who have to deliver the results.

    At least one of the swing bowlers must be in on it.

    Australian Cheating at Cricket

    Given the ICC sanction is a pathetic suspension of two games or less, maybe the consequences had escaped him. I think Cricket Australia have got the punishment right. I'd like to think the ECB would respond with similar vigour.

    James Tarkowski

    Feeling proud. First saw him play for Oldham yoof against Man City. 6-2 down as the game went into injury time. Hat trick for Harry Bunn. But Tarkowski had looked really impressive throughout. As the game went into injury time, the cold Oldham air biting into me, I'd have left if my lad...

    James Tarkowski

    I knew he was good the first time I saw him turn out for Oldham Youth Team. But this exceeds where I thought he'd reach in the game.

    Video Assistant Referees

    Encroachment happened before he stopped his run up. VAR would presumably have said retake and no booking. But wasn't used.

    Your Child's First Brentford Match

    Five years old. 2002. Tranmere 1-2 Oldham. Fell asleep. Oldham got a penalty. "What's a penital?" Been to most home games since. Ballboyed a few seasons too. Comes back from uni most weekends to take more footballing punishment. I think my father son relationship is easily the best...

    New rule made up by me

    They had the rugby "move ten yards forward for dissent/time wasting" rule a few years back. Scrapped it very quickly. Making goal kicks get taken from the side the ball went out would be an improvement. Even though the existing rule was brought in to reduce time wasting!
