    Regarding Kane I can feel a metatarsal coming. Then again serious shoulder dislocation in the penalty box!

  • Poor from Germany. Looked like they could have played for 900 minutes and still not have scored. Müller looks like the version that turns up at Euros rather than previous World Cups. I think they’ll struggle to get out of the group now (probably means they’ll go on and win it now I’ve said that..)

  • They do and if you were VERY good you could pick up over £400 000 per week in their league.

    Limited history and exposure to the outdside world until recently.?

    England have a 43.7% chance of reaching the quarters according to this analysis: https://www.theengineer.co.uk/world-cup/

    I was so certain that there’d be a thread running about the World Cup that I almost didn’t bother with this but, unless I’ve missed something, there doesn’t seem to be.

    So, the World Cup: who’s going to win, who’s going to surprise us and just how flaccid will England’s performance be? Post your thoughts, your reactions, your opinions,…[Read more]

    Have faith. In the most serious cases, surgery is necessary.

    I know many people who have had great success with pilates, yoga, and posture realignment therapy. All these things you can start doing gently before any results come through. By strengthening your core muscles now will only support your back/spine further and is not detrimental.

  • @connie Why don’t you just acknowledge that most people make bad and bad taste jokes, and they do it partly to annoy people like you, but mainly as a coping mechanism in the face of real life. It doesn’t actually mean that they, for example, think that battered wives (or husbands) are a big joke.

    Thanks I went to see my Doctor and turns out I have a bit of diabetic neuropathy in my feet and as well as as Mortons Neuroma. I think the neuropathy made sure I didn’t feel it when my feet got injured…only the after pain affecting regions with active nerves. I don’t know how I am going to stop my feet from getting worse if I cannot properly…[Read more]

  • skipper replied to the topic Milk causing early puberty? in the forum Health 5 months ago

    Couldn’t open the link but is it based on American systems? They farm dairy very differently to the UK (and europe) and use hormones to produce milk rather than the cow having a calf. Their way is illegal here so no hormones in British (and European) dairy products.

    Our milk is sampled daily, if there is anything in there that shouldn’t be it all…[Read more]

    @socccergal Thanks for your support! It feels like a really dull ache today and

    Iv been looking at my running shoes and they are pretty worn out.. weirdly they do feel a lot tighter than they did when I bought them and I am pretty sure my feet haven’t grown and I only bought them 6 months ago. I think they are made from some pretty bad materials…[Read more]

    Thanks for your replies guys really appreciate it. I looked online and the word metatarsalgia popped up but that injury seems to be extremely broad and covers all ball of foot injuries.

    I wonder if it might be caused by me putting too much pressure on ball of feet when I walk or something.

    I was thinking I might do PRICE, but is this only for…[Read more]

  • I woke up this morning with really bad ball of foot pain in my right foot. What is the most common cause of ball of foot pain? I don’t know what has caused it as I do a lot of different sports.. football/climbing/skiing/running/cycling so I cannot pin down the injury to a bad “technique”. It could be that I have really bad technique in just one of…[Read more]

  • skipper replied to the topic Mourinho in the forum General Banter 5 months, 1 week ago

    Liverpool are an awful team this year compared to other years. They’ve no midfield and Cann is off soon. Attacking they are great but behind that there’s a very weak team. Until they sign a keeper worthy of being at a top premiership team I’d be surprised if they made the champions league. They should have signed Schmeichel last summer.
