    Kane is a good player. With him in the side, they’ll be a threat to anyone

    Yes, but he will get injured.

    What did everyone think of the England game last night?

    Unfortunately, in my opinion, they’re missing a lot of quality and inspiration.

    No Beardsley, Waddle, Gascogne, Lineker, Platt. 1996 was the last time we had a side capable of winning it and Baddiel and Skinners song no longer rhymes.

    Because you can only pick 11 men at a time. There just isn’t the passion for team sports in China from what I have seen and you need that passion to create the conditions where talented players can get to the top. It is no use having someone who makes Ronaldo look like a saturday morning part-timer if he spends his entire life assembling iPhones…[Read more]

    England could do ok.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if we made the quarters.

    You never know. There’s no super dominant team this year so it’s pretty open. I’d love for Messi to show how good he is but if he doesn’t play well Argentina will struggle.

    Germany are Germany so you have to fancy them.

    I’m just hoping England play without fear. They have a…[Read more]

    We would employ more women but we can’t find any women that went to Eton!

    Thanks for all the replies. All really helpful.

    Think I’m going to hire a concept 2 for a few months to see how I go. My partner is skeptical about me keeping it up (I held my tongue over his cross trainer gathering dust in the spare room).

    Good points raised about technique and warm ups. I’ve only had 5 goes on a machine and the resident gym…[Read more]

    Ah ok that’s interesting. So you wouldn’t recommend water one? I was tempted as they are advertised as being quieter.

    I really enjoyed the times I used the machine on holiday. I generally hate all gym equipment as I get bored but having to focus on technique really helps.

  • tigg replied to the topic Best rowing machines? in the forum General Banter 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Thank you . That’s a really good idea. I’ll look into that!

  • I’m thinking of buying a rowing machine to help maintain fitness.
    Used to be super fit, not so much anymore

    I hate the gym and the nearest decent one is half an hour away anyway.

    Whilst on holiday I tried out all the equipment and I liked rowing. The gym had a concept 2 air rower. These are very expensive!

    Has anybody got any recommendations o…[Read more]
