I could live with it...but would worry that Babylon is nowadays a bit tarnished by Marleyesque rasta association, with corruption and decadence.

It wasn't as bad as they make out. Fight the rasta power.

Admire the optimism but I think you are trying to overcomplicate "shit goalkeeping"

Like supporting Assad's regime against IS, I find myself unwittingly aligned to DMR.

At least you got everyone's name right, that's better than our local paper usually manages.

Thanks for posting.

I'm standing on the back row right under the left of the scoreboard, I wondered why a new stadium never had a score board, honestly never knew it was there.   Roll Eyes

Bale does it as well. You aim the valve to where you want the ball to go, hit the ball on the valve with a flat foot. It's fucking hard to do but if you get it right....

Saw a fascinating baseball documentary in the States a year or 2 back about an old style of pitching the ball. Called a knuckleball, the idea is to throw the ball without imparting any spin on it at all. Seen in slow mo, the ball just doesn't turn or spin at all as it goes through the air. What it does do is swerve, drop and do all sorts of weird things, due to some sort of aerodynamics that it seems no-one understands, least of all the pitcher. Crucially these balls are pitched at 50mph or thereabouts, rather than the 90+ of a typical fastball.

Just like Drogba and Ronaldo, and maybe Yas, do to a football. That Yas free kick seemed to float into the net, it wasn't a rocket.

Feedback - very fair summation. One point from pedant's corner though, for an aspiring journo, appalling grammar mistake in the para dealing with Obika missing a sitter. You'll probably be ok for a job at the Daily Mail though.
