Yep. It calls for possession football.

But it won’t suit Ireland’s close passing game, and their wish to play the ball out of defence.

I assume that we will be found guilty on those counts. I have not heard or read anything about the few cretins that follow England causing any trouble , so hopefully those will be the only charges.

I have seen nothing in the statement issued by EUFA to this effect. They state that they awaiting the referee’s report before taking any action.
This according to BBC news.

I wonder why they changed the title? It is however one of the best American rock ‘n roll records, and one that gets more plays on my juke box than most. When you saw Chuck he was probably looking for Route 66.

The Stones were at the bottom of that bill. Come on had just reached the charts. I recall that they did Not fade away also.Unsurprisingly Little Richard’s set was chaotic.

Very envious of you seeing Chuck Berry. Did he forget the words of many of the songs? Apparently he regularly did.
Am I right in thinking you also went to The Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Rolling Stones show at the Guamont in 1963?

Pretty sure I have seen the Buddy Holly one, but not the Chuck Berry. I will have to get that on Catch up.
Ultimate “Look at me” I did see Buddy Holly at the Gaumont on March 12th 1958.

It seems that we are heading for a softer Brexit than the one that Teresa May agreed with the EU, and was rejected by Boris and a considerable number of his cabinet members.

Your tartan rug and flask have cult status. Not you. Have you started going to Portman Road again?

That is obviously a correct assessment of the situation from someone who experienced it. I would slightly take issue with the thought that the opposition to the Catalan independence movement In the rest of Spain was from the “Spanish right”. In my experience it was more general than that

Jock strap, cricket boot and a helmet should do it. Although that is probably insufficient if Facters comes across you.

It is not quite that simple. As with all protest movements, there is an extreme element who used violence. The political leaders did not condemn this. There was very little sympathy in the rest of Spain for those protestors who were subject to the violence of the Guardian Civil. I think the jail sentences are aimed at making examples of the politicians, and may well get reduced on appeal.

There was huge provocation and ovr-reaction from the Guardian Civil if you take the Separatist viewpoint. Outside of Catalina there was/is very little sympathy for their cause. The display of Spanish flags hanging from balconies In Madrid was remarkable.

One of the key issues with the Catalan politicians is their perceived encouragement of civil disorder.

I wouldn’t be sure of that, but I would bet that attendances at Portman Road would not be at their current levels.

The only way that could happen is if The Queen gave evidence against them. Not very likely is it?
