    Real Madrid 2 Manchester United 1. Mourinho had said that if Gareth Bale played Real wanted him to stay. He played. Real was his childhood dream. There are no other bidders. Mourinho is surely also right about the huge size of transfer fees. Tottenham under David Levy have a reputation for not over paying. Bale likes to play for Wales. Would a Welsh team in the premiership be attractive? Cardiff are not in the premiership at the moment. Swansea are and may be raising £50 million if they sell Sigurdson to Everton. So ??£50 million down and £10 million a year for 5 years??

    The transfer window is still open, this year anyway.
    Clubs are being asked to pay in euros because sterling is falling on the exchanges.

  • Despite all the hullabaloo about millions of pounds/euros in the Premier League, I was pleased to hear that my newly promoted home town club, little old Huddersfield Town, are to have a minute’s applause before the match with Newcastle in memory of Bernard Kenny GM who died this week.

    Bernard, a retired miner aged 79, desperately tried to protect and save Jo Cox MP when she was attacked and was seriously injured himself. Jo’s family, who are season ticket holders, will be there. Well done, proud of the Terriers.

    Cook lbw 243 v Windies. No sign of the nervous nineties, nor while 198, but highest score 294, same ground, what happened there? When will he get 300+? or 333+?

    England 514 for 8, Windies 168 and 137. England win by an innings and 209 runs. Edgbaston sold out for three days, best not to buy tickets for the fourth day. Man of the match Alistair Cook, top scorer and 2 catches. Broad now has more wickets than Ian Botham, who was watching, Anderson will soon have 500, but not because of the pink ball.
    The Windies have a political history. After independence their team was mostly local (and therefore black) with a white captain. For reasons of local pride a local newspaper ran a campaign for a different captain, whom they named, without ever saying it was about skin colour. He was appointed. The Windies went on to have a series of great teams with individual stars, such as Brian Lara scoring 400 not out. Their current team is not one of their best, partially because their supporters like a winning team, so losses lead to a spiral of decline. Most of their batsmen were out twice on the same day because of the follow-on. In their heyday they got Geoffrey Boycott out twice in a test match at Headingly in his beloved Yorkshire.

    The England team should look to improve before the tour of Australia. Boycott says they need to defend better, so that former captain Cook has company. Perhaps Boycott should show them how, by batting at 2.

    Commentators have been saying that Bolt is the fastest man in the world, well they can measure his top speed during a race, or over 100 metres or 200 metres, but has he ever raced against MO Farah? To be serious neither is as fast as Lewis Hamilton, on pole at Spa.

  • Richard Underhill 27th Aug '17 - 2:43pm

    At the end of the race they play the national anthem, OUR national anthem. Well done Lewis.

  • Richard Underhill 29th Aug '17 - 1:34pm

    Suppose Jimmy Anderson scores with the first ball, and again with the second ball? It happened. Spectators should turn up on time, or early, and not say anything audible to the stump microphones. If Cook misses a catching opportunity the right word is Cookie! Redirected aggression could be harmful to the bowler’s health.

  • Richard Underhill 7th Sep '17 - 1:31pm

    Jimmy Anderson has taken two wickets so far today at Lords, a career total of 499.
    Get ready to applaud.
