    Poor batting and a strong Indian attack I think. They should have won the last test but absolutely blew it by failing to mop up the Indian tail in the first innings and then batting like donkeys in their 2nd.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Bazball, to an extent. I do think Stokes captaincy has big question marks over it. It’s also a job for the boys team, his mates clearly get preferential treatment. Bairstow has played every game and not hit a single 50. What’s he doing in the side? He’s best mates with Stokes, is the answer. Stokes reluctance to persist with bowlers at the end of an innings instead of changing it around to mop up the tail is awful to watch.

    and Remco and Roglic. It was scary to see such levels of concrete on the outside of a corner.

    I watched the back end of the Fortuna Dusseldorf v Bochum second leg pay-off game last night, Bochum 3-0 down from the first leg having to do to Fortuna what they did to them last week. What a crazy game it was, Bochum somehow getting back the 3 goal deficit, forcing extra time and keeping them in the top flight Bundesliga with a 6-5 victory on penalties...

    I think from memory, that when the play-offs were first introduced in this country we had the 3rd from bottom team play the 3rd from top in the then 2nd division but didnt last long. But i can't help but feel that this always helps the team in the higher division as on paper they should be the better side of the two, proved by the fact the last 2 teams to have won this play-off tie have been the nigher placed team....

    Anyway, it was a good game, and had everything you want in a play-off game with goals, great saves and crucial missed chances all leading up to a penalty shoot-out...!!

    Man City launch legal action over financial rules

    I'm not sure what to think about this whole Citeh thing that they are going to launch a legal case against the Premier League and all of its financial rules, as it might back fire on them as much as the Premier League in the end.

    They claim that they are the victims of "discrimination", that the amended rules were approved by rivals to "stifle" their success on the pitch, and call it "a tyranny of the majority". I wonder what the likes of Newcastle think of that, being that they cant spend owt due to insufficient funds coming in to their own clubs despite having a wealthy owner...??

    I suppose this is to counter attack these 115 charges that the Premier League have been threatening to do for what seems like an eternity, so maybe Citeh are throwing the first punch here.

    This could be better than the Fury v Usyk fight...!!

    The whole sport has been ruined by money. I’m glad my lot are nowhere near the premier league.
