That's him gone, then ...
Tho a ManU supporting friend of mine was the other day bitterly hoping there wouldn't be an unlikely win over Liverpool, which might prevent the club's problems (as he sees them) being exposed and dealt with. He doesn't entirely blame the manager, but does feel he isn't coping well.

that she should go to college and study economics before talking about divestment from fossil fuels, really cuts to the heart of the problem.
On the one side we have people who consider jobs and economic growth above environmental protection, on the other those who are more concerned about securing the future of the planet than mundane economics. Until the one can somehow be linked to the other (which you would have thought should be possible, given the economic effects of climate change), there is no common ground.
Currently the former group are in the positions of power, so the climate activists are on the back foot. Tho the ground is shifting as financial institutions change the emphasis of their investments.

to ease the schedule of matches.
Why doesn't he drop out of things like the Champions League and the Club World Cup instead?
You know, rather than deleting something which benefits lower level clubs. It's not like he can't afford to have a whole separate squad to play LC games, anyway.

The SW Supporters Group meet-up beforehand
Still can't put our chances away or make pressure count.

isn't as batsman-friendly as everyone thinks. England's bowlers certainly making hay.

|A bit of a conundrum|

When the problem is the Owner, the Manager and a large proportion of the players (depending upon who you ask), what is to be done?

at clubs who sacked their managers while at the top end of whatever division they were in.
Now, at least for some, it is a genuine dilemma. A fear that he may end up costing us a vital promotion has put us in that place.

The situation with the NZ volcano, where locals are demanding that rescue personnel risk their lives by going onto the island (despite warnings of increasing danger) to retrieve the bodies of those who are already dead. Fair enough if there was any chance of survivors, but there isn't.
Why is there this urgent need to collect the remains, when it could lead to further - IMO unnecessary - deaths?

Not actually from the Conservatives ("working4uk"), doesn't mention them by name, but denigrates all other parties and prints a load of alarmist statements about money.
They really ought to ban these organisations - evidently allied to political parties - from sidestepping the rules about campaigning on the day (and the overall financial restrictions).

'How long can you justify a system whereby everybody who has a TV has to pay to fund a particular set of TV and radio channels?'
As long as is necessary to protect public service broadcasting, minority content and quality programming (especially radio). Also to defend it from commercial and political interference.

I'm staying down in Taunton, a few miles from the epicentre. Quite a noticeable shake of the house.

Almost at parity with NZ. The weather may do for this Test Match, but England are making a decent fist of it.
