I remember the Football Italia where JR had a cut on his head from being attacked on the way in. Sampdoria - Milan? Inter?

Mrs Sheen loved "The Bee Sting", I must get round to it.

I was with the family at Lake Bohinj in Slovenia over a decade ago. There was a beautifully kept war cemetery there for soldiers and civilian workers (and Russian POWs) who had carried supplies up to the front lines up in the mountains. I didn’t work it out at the time as the border has moved and the name changed, but Caparetto, the site of Italy’s great catastrophe, was only 10km the other side of the ridge. Hard to imagine a more peaceful place, I was really taken aback by it.

I haven't read that but Grann's "The Wager" is fantastic, an insane story of a disastrous Royal Navy mission to the West Coast of South America and the struggles of the survivors. Scurvy, mutiny, shipwreck and creative woodwork.

No you're right. The BBC had it this morning but have corrected it.

I've just finished Nick Lloyd's "Eastern Front", the follow -up to his "Western Front" (no, really) and the second in a planned three-part military history of the First World War. The perpetual cycle of command over-optimism and staggering suffering by the troops gets a bit numbing at time, and the maps can't keep up with the long list of fought-over rivers and villages along thousands of miles of front. However, there is so much in it I had never seen covered in any detail before, such as Romania's catastrophic war and the long stalemate at Salonica, seemingly conceived as a way of giving a popular but incompetent French general something to do. While I am very familiar with the muddy trenches of Flanders, I had no idea that the Italians and Austrians fought eleven battles over a narrow forty mile strip of limestone rubble above the Isonzo valley. It's a brilliant account of an utterly disastrous conflict for everyone who got involved, with the arguable exception of August von Mackensen (played about 14, won 14).

Che Adams to Torino for £10m!!! Do Juve feel like trumping them with a bigger Scottish striker?

Brilliant finish, great last burst by Clare. Hard on Cork, but I’m glad it didn’t go to a replay (or penalties!).

Clare chucked it away (for now). Their scoring completely dried up.

I know there’s been another thread, but worth bringing to general attention to any neutrals. Should be a lot of fun for anyone not called Brian McCarthy or CLAREMAN. 3.30 throw-in.

A direct descendant of the assassin, Henry Bellingham, is a Conservative peer and former MP. He lost his seat in 1997 (though regained it in 2001), in part because the UKIP candidate, Roger Percival, siphoned away 5,000 votes; he claimed to be a direct descendant of the murdered PM.

Eight assassination attempts on Queen Victoria, one with a cane! Scarred her face apparently. None of her attempted assassins were executed.

I remember people wearing hearing aids (and fake glasses) in honour of Morrissey. Direct line of descent?
