    Reported today that the Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs have been in talks with other mega clubs in Europe with a view to forming a European super league outside EUFA's structures.

    Will make Monday night away games a bit tricky!!

    Most responses to BBC News this morning seemed to contain the words "Good" and "Riddance".

    A PL fan said that would be the end for him and he'd go back to supporting his local non-league team. Not all bad news then...

    Just got back from my local hospital.....only a few minutes away....It's a big place...about 20 years old....The Princess Royal University Hospital.....known by locals as the PRUH.

    Had an Ultra Sound check on my left knee......had to wait two months for it, and was surprised when I got a Sunday appointment.

    So mid-day I pop up there for my 12.30 appointment.....arrived in the Radiology Department Wing....large reception area....30/40 seats available, walked towards the receptionist who called my name out before I got to her.....there was no one else visible in this quite vast area.....no one waiting anywhere.

    She directed me through some double doors to another waiting room area with at least 10 side rooms.

    A Radiologist popped out from one of the doors ,after a couple of minutes waiting in this also empty waiting room, and called my name.

    10 minutes later I was walking out..... and back to my car... and got back indoors at 12.35 pm......away from home only 35 minutes, seen a quarter of an hour early and walking out before my appointment time even arrived.

    It is as if this giant Hospital had opened its Radiology Department especially for me alone....still had to wait two months for the privilege though.

    Don't feel sorry for him BC he's a moaning old git who they just saw to shut him up......................

    They often do weekend stuff to clear their decks. I had a camera down the throat on a Saturday and I spoke to the staff whilst there. They said that's what happens from time to time. Probably getting rid of the backlog before Christmas.

    Nothing that small BC it was a BBC outside broadcast camera. It showed 4 half digested pilgrim pasties and a couple of bottles of white plonk apparently. Must have been the day after my Banquet.

    He didn't tell you BC that the camera was still in the BBC outside broadcast van when it went down his throat....didn't even touch the sides.

    I can't help wondering about the efficiency of opening a hospital department for one patient.

    Sounds like sloganising "we offer 7 day care" without thinking it through.

    Radiologists are apparently in short supply and that looks like a shift wasted

    Lets put it this way Joe, when I was a small child they used to have carnivals in most of the areas of plymouth throughout the summer months. Lipson was no exception and part of the day was a fancy dress thing. There was a prize so it was all serious stuff. My parents fixed up a tricycle with an arial thing and me with a handlebar mustache and a pretend microphone the size of a house brick. I was the one and only Raymond Glendenning of radio fame at that time. And I won a prize but I can't remember for the life of me what it was. Think I was around 4 years old.

    I don't totally knock it myself Joe. It is a landmark in history terms and if it brings a load of Yanks over with a few quid to chuck about into the local economy then that cannot be a bad thing for the City. I'm not sure about Trump visiting though and to be honest I can't see that happening. If it gives us a bit of publicity across the globe then that's ok too. I just hope they don't put a load of naff stuff on and try to pass it off as celebration. A ship sailing from a waterfront location is hardly the greatest spectacle in the universe.

    Here's a good one. My Mrs bless her said that with Don Trump visiting he might want to buy Argyle for the kudos of owning the club where his country started out from. She will recover from her black eye and fat lip soon I hope but she does bring it on herself.

    The current leader of UKIP has appointed the facist Tommy Robinson as an advisor. Says so much about that party, to the extent Farage has lodged a no confidence motion against the leader.

    You'd hope that meant Farage had suddenly found his moral conscience at the back of a drawer but I suspect it's ambition...

    UKIP have been attracting the waifs and strays of society for awhile....only one person was able to make the other parties sit up and take notice of them.

    This country is desperate to replace the burnt out remnants of the Tories, Labour and the Lib-Dems....and for awhile there looked an alternative that attracted 4 million voters.....but it started to go wrong after two Tories jumped ship and joined them and other misfits came out of their sewers and drag it down.

    After March next year when this country will be turned into a colony of the EU....will that be enough to waken-up the electorate to seek new leadership for the future.

    Even before the ink has dried on the Brexit divorce deal France and Spain are getting ready to try and cause trouble as soon as we officially leave at the end of March next year.

    France will be trying to get access to more of our fishing territory before they give us any concessions on trade.

    Spain want joint sovereignty over Gibraltar and feel that this is the moment to try their luck.

    Theresa May is in denial that she has spent two years achieving literally nothing and will be trying to get Parliament to accept her deal.....she could be looking at a quiet Christmas as an ex-Prime Minister.

    Why is it so important to retain some governance over a rock some 1500 miles or so away from the UK which sits on the end of Spain? The people of Gibraltar have done very nicely out of the UK for a very long time now and just because it suits them not to be Spanish, which they all speak, is no reason for us to keep coughing up the pounds in support now. We used to have a use for it but we haven't been at war with Spain for several hundred years now and the reason to keep it has long gone. Remembering of course we nicked it from them in the first place.

    As for the rest of it what exactly did everyone expect to happen in the divorce? Did we think that just because we are England that everyone else would simply roll over then sit up and beg? I for one hope that we do have an ex PM. I also hope we have an election as well because if you think the new incumbents of No.10 and the government seats in Westminster will do a better job and even not have a second referendum then you are clearly barking. The MPs who are creating all of the crap currently are not interested in what is good for Britain. This is a power play for their own ends and nothing else. Even wreck it Jerry is doing that. And he is supposed to be one with principals.
