    There's hope for us all

    Just been watching Eurosport this afternoon and watched the first World Cup race of the new Biathlon season. Biathlon is arguably the most physically demanding sport out there. Cross country skiing 4km, then you have to stop, lower your heart rate and shoot at a tiny target 50m away and then...

    Eurosport win TV rights to Olympics From 2022 the Olympics may not be on the BBC. It will be on Eurosport. It's possible that Discovery/Eurosport will sub-lease coverage to the BBC or another free to air channel. A lot of 'how disgusting' reaction on social media...

    England 2026

    Evidently Greg Dyke has said the FA could be persuaded to launch a bid for the 2026 World Cup. Let's not. Did we not learn anything before?

    Fulham v Brentford - 1 January 1994

    All the talk of our imminent takeover of Craven Cottage reminds me so much of this game. If memory serves me right this was a lunchtime kick off on New Years Day. Most of us turning up to the game with a hangover, and then hitting the pubs before the match. Mostly feeling delicate filing into...

    Huddersfield game - M3 closure?

    Anyone know it M3 J2 will be closed after tonight's game, like it was after last week's Blackpool game. Myself and many others were put onto the diversion from hell. At least if we know it is to be closed we wont have to go all the way to Sunbury and all the way back to Staines again!! Ive...

    Pick Your Greatest World Cup XI on BBC website Found it near impossible to narrow it down to 11 but came up with Banks Cafu-Beckenbauer-Moore-Maldini Charlton-Zidane-Jairzinho Pele-Maradona-Cruyff Slightly attack minded! Rated a 46 Then did a B team (for the Johnstones Paint Trophy) and that...

    Big Bash

    Australian domestic Twenty20 tournament. Being shown on Sky Sports. The most interesting innovation is the wickets. They light up! Looks like a silly gimmick at first, but when you have a close run out or stumping and the wicket is broken it gives a pretty good indication if a batsman is in or...

    FA Cup Final 2012 - Liverpool v Chelsea

    Hoping for a great game being led out by 2 FA Cup legends. After Bees games this is the game i look forward to most each season. Never miss the Cup Final. Kick off this year is 5.15. Im very much in favour of moving the Final to a Saturday evening. Wembley looks great in the May evening...

    After football and cricket, biathlon is my favourite sport. Odd, yes a little, but when i first saw it on TV i was hooked. For those who are unaware of it it combines nordic cross country skiing with rifle shooting. It comes in 5 different disciplines. Individual - which is a longer distance...

    What would you change about Football?

    With new season approaching imminently just wondered what people would change about football, big changes or small changes. Heres what i would do 1. Scrap transfer window. Football clubs are businesses and should be able to trade all year round. 2. Move the Cup Final to a Saturday night...

    Kick off times

    Heres a thought ive had before. A bit past the event now, but why dont teams on Saturday games in winter months, kick off at 2pm rather than 3. Means more daylight, better for supporters, less spent on floodlighting, warmer part of day. Im sure there would be pros and cons. What do people think?

    Petar Borota

    Petar Borota has sadly died at the age of 56 after a long illness. He signed for the Bees back in 1982 from Chelsea, but never to my knowledge played a first team game. Remember him in a Big Match Revisited making his debut and...
