Re: England v Wales

Well, he was on the pitch.

In the context of the offside law, 'Interfering with play' means playing or touching the ball passed or played by a teammate.

If Williams was deemed to have intentionally played the ball (he went up for a header), then Vardy was no longer offside.

Re: England v Wales

no comments on the "goal" that was offside then? If you're talking about Vardy's goal, it was one of the best pieces of refereeing seen in recent times.

Re: George Martin

It is sad when anyone dies, but if you have lived a life 'well lived', then it becomes a case that the person should be celebrated, rather than mourned. Although I am on record as not being a fan of the Beatles, there is no doubt of their pervading influence, much of which can be laid at the door of...

Re: Marching on Together

Not a bad design - can't be doing with this new 'all leeds aren't we' nonsense though. sounds really aggressive and arrogant to me. what's wrong with a good old fashioned 'we are leeds'?

Re: NFL - playoff season

To go in to the break 31-0 down and to come within a couple of inches of a completed kick off catch that could have set up a final drive - would have made it one of the best comebacks in NFL history.

IMHO.

There is a disturbance in the force - balance needs to be restored... It's been a pretty good year at Anorak towers - musically, at least.
