FA Cup Final: har har har!

It's not often I want neither team to win. Both teams losing would have been a good result.

I've often had that thought about football matches. But I have to say I made an exception this afternoon. I didn't watch - I had forgotten it was on until I heard the result - but Jan's sister's family are MC season ticket holders and have been unbearably smug in recent years whenever football is mentioned.

I see the new Chelsea manager is a Pep Giardiasis clone.

I saw a picture of him earlier and initially thought it actually was Guardiola.

He's also a figurative clone - he was one of his acolytes at City before becoming a manager in his own right.

Beeb online is showing the women's 20km Race Walk at the European Athletics Championships - the lead walker is pacing at 4'20"/km.  That's around 1 hr 32 min half marathon pace.

There's a bit of a "Whoops!" in the current England v Iceland football match...

No, this is normal for experienced observers!

England THRASHED by tiny Iceland!  Almost all experienced players substituted.  I am putting money on England to win the Euros, now.

Didn't Iceland beat England some years ago? Iceland, population approximately equal to that of Southend and Castle Point combined...
