You say you only know what your own team is up to, and then you go on to say you know what a load of other teams are up to. I think you're being disingenuous. I know what 'supporting a football team' and it isn't what I'm talking about.

If you want to know why people don't like Ronaldo then watch his reaction to Bale's second goal. He's visibly annoyed the ball didn't rebound out so he could tap it in and that Bale would be the one grabbing all the headlines.

People who are very severely depressed tend not to kill themselves, because they just don't have the energy. The most dangerous time is when they've just started to recover. They still feel that life isn't worth living, but now they've got the will to actually do something about it.

That's what being a Sunderland supporter is like. I can take the despair - it's the hope I can't stand.

Stewart Donald had better not fuck it up.

>Phil Neville has been confirmed as the new coach of the England women’s football team.

>The former Manchester United, Everton and England player has signed a three-year deal and replaces Mark Sampson, who was sacked from the post last September for “inappropriate behaviour” with a player in a previous job.

>Neville’s appointment is a controversial one. While the 40-year-old holds a pro licence qualification and has previously served as a coach under David Moyes at Manchester United, his brother, Gary Neville, at Valencia and with the men’s England Under-21 team, he has never been a manager in his own right and has a total lack of experience in the women’s game.


>It is understood the 40-year-old’s name was initially suggested to the Football Association in a lighthearted manner by a well-known broadcaster at a drinks reception last month.


Giving the job to someone who didn't apply for it and whose name was put forward as a joke. Nice to see the FA take women's football seriously.

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley).

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Harry Maguire (Leicester), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Ashley Young (Manchester United).

Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea).

Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Jamie Vardy (Leicester), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal).

Standby: Lewis Cook (Bournemouth), Tom Heaton (Burnley), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Jake Livermore (West Brom), James Tarkowski (Burnley).

Not too bad, although there's a distinct lack of creativity in the midfield; I'd have probably taken Shelvey over Welbeck.

Netball's ace, I never realised it was all the running that made me dislike basketball, until these games. It's a shame they're taking place on the other side of the planet because it makes actually watching them a pain in the arse. I had the same problem with the Winter Olympics.

And it has now been confirmed that Beardsley will not be working with the players who have brought the complaints against him until the matter is resolved.

>Sportsmail reported on Monday that Newcastle’s hierarchy had heard how Beardsley allegedly made a racist comment to one of his players during a trip to the Go Ape adventure course. It is claimed Beardsley said to an African player struggling to climb on some bars, 'Why are you taking so long? Your lot should be good at this'. He is also alleged to have questioned the age of African players.

These things are different for everyone I suppose. I've climbed sheer rock faces placing lumps of metal in the cracks, looping rope though a ring attached to that with one end tied to me and having a mate 40 meters below I can't see holding the rope at the other end who swears he'll catch me and having to have faith none of that system breaks as I grip on half upside-down with my fingers.

Where as when I went to go ape last with my immediate family they all shat themselves had to be 'rescued' by the instructors, and we left early to go down the pub.

>Eh? So what?

There's long been question marks over the ages of African players. For example, Kanu was allegedly just shy of his 17th birthday when he signed for Ajax and was just shy of his 20th birthday when he left them for Inter.

Black boys generally physically develop faster than white boys, but the lack of proper birth certificates in parts of Africa means there's a suspicion that older players have been gaming the system to try and get recruited by youth academies.

No doubt there's some who find this suspicion to be racist.

The stitch-up is in. Today's papers were full of predictions that Russia would be banned from Rio and it hasn't happened. Those with a record will be excluded, regardless of whether or not that ban has been served. For everyone else, their testing records are to be re-evaluated with Russian results disregarded. It will be left to the individual sporting bodies to decide further conditions - the IAAF already has a blanket ban in place.

Some argued that the collective punishment would be unfair, but it's been pointed out that they did the same to South Africa over apartheid, and that Kuwait is currently suspended because of state interference. In particular, the Russian operation was entirely compromised by the state in ways which make it almost impossible to say with any certainty whether any given athlete's record is reliable.

Apparently this sort of thing is enough to get you banned if you're Kuwait or Kenya, but if you're Russia you can get away with it.

You've missed most of the final though. For later tonight and the rest of this week, if you click around to find "Schedules" you can pick which sport you care about and see when the sessions are happening in UK time.

I was impressed with Tanasan, but more impressed with Miyake yesterday. Andoh just lost a 126kg PB on the c+j, still looks like she's going to get silver. I'm honestly more interested in watching the older lifters though, lifters like Guerrero have excellent composure and their technique is flawless.

I hate to think about it but this is sort of making me want to listen to my trainer when he said he wanted to take me to a meet or two by this year. I shot him down immediately because I hate failure of any kind, but idk. It might be fun to actually lift in front of a crowd.

Hockenheim might be off the calendar soon, because they're not selling enough tickets. Bernie's strategy of milking the sport dry isn't sustainable. The F1 fanbase is rapidly ageing and there aren't enough young fans coming into the sport. The end of free-to-air broadcasts is one of many short-sighted moves that jeopardise the future of F1.

There aren't enough young fans coming in into the sport for... what? Keeping the viewership figures where they used to be? Doesn't matter. The revenue streams have changed so that advertising revenue isn't what's keeping the whole thing afloat as it was back in the tobacco days.

Bernie and the FIA have done and will continue to do things which I, as a fan, detest. But it's really stupid to confuse your personal feelings with the business being in any sort of real jeopardy. It's not.

Kidnapped New Zealand-born athlete Jason Lee and his partner are now safe in Toronto after a harrowing week in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Two military police officers kidnapped Lee over the weekend, forcing him into an unmarked car and making him extract 2000 Reais ($812) from ATMs.

Police from the same branch then visited his apartment in what he described as an attempt to intimidate him. Two officers have since been taken into custody.


How much of a shitshow are the Olympics going to be? I know all kinds of problems were predicted for the World Cup in South Africa and that ended up going relatively smoothly, but this seems like it's definitely going to be an absolute clusterfuck.
