Any ladbrokeslads got some hot tips for this year's?

I don't follow horses or bet on anything else, ever, but I do put £9 on one horse £1 on a 100/1 donkey each year.

In a shock move that absolutely nobody saw coming, corrupt tin-pot dictator Step Ladder has been re-elected president of FIFA. As a secret ballot, we won't know who voted for whom, but it seems reasonable to assume that most of UEFA voted for Prince Ali, an Arab royal who by some miracle appears not to have much in the way of blood on his hands.

FIFA operates on one country one vote. Africa and Asia almost always dominate as there's simply so many.

Don't pretend CONMEBOL is rolling in cash either. They had a better hit rate at voting against Blatter than UEFA did.

Without trying too hard to blow the patriotic trumpet, it's simply because they're not as bent as rest of the footballing executive. The FA holds a decent amount of weight, they opposed Blatter's election and subsequent re-elections and the British press are prone to pointing out things FIFA officials would rather not have pointed out.

>>7298
If it were up to me UEFA and FIFA would be dissolved tomorrow.

As for IFAB, IFAB govern the rules, there's nothing stopping anyone giving them the finger but they'd have to also give the finger to the world cup, et al, which is the step I think is necessary to sort out the state of football.

The IFAB has the four home associations and FIFA with four votes. The FA is the important one, and between the four of them can effectively block FIFA if they seek to change anything fundamental. Not only are the FA less bent, they also refuse to be more bent. The special status of the home nations is enshrined in FIFA's statutes, and if they made any attempt to change this, you can bet the power of the IFAB would be leveraged to block anything that FIFA puts before it. This is why the Team GB stuff was mostly scaremongering - other sports have similar arrangements without any issue. Nobody would dare try using the Lions as an excuse to eliminate the home unions from World Rugby.

That being said, a quick search led to two fair looking sites that put up links a couple of hours before the fight (presumably so they can't be taken down in advance). Check at 1am.

It's hard to recommend a regular, reliable streaming site as they are normally temporary setups for specific events. A few aggregate sites pull together links. Aside from that, it's just a case of spending a minute looking for it.

If you read the article itself, it says that the cause of death is unclear, or at least not yet announced. The first transplant didn't necessarily fail, we don't know that yet.

On the other hand, if a transplant does fail, chances are a second transplant wouldn't last long either.

That would be Bafetimbi Gomis, current top scorer in the Premier League, who joined Swansea for a massive fee of £0.00 earlier this year. Though he may be upstaged by his striking partner Andre Ayew, who joined for a similarly massive fee this window. Pic very much related.

Lads and ladettes, I know you all can't spend 24 hours a day stuck behind your macbook pros giving it large on /QI/. That's why I decided to start this thread, I want to hear about what sports you've been doing.

Personally I do a fair bit of cross-country running and on Monday I went to a climbing gym. I haven't climbed in a long while and towards the end of my session I could barely stand up. Felt bad at the time but I feel fucking awesome now.

I also went surfing last friday which was pretty hard work. Nice conditions slight drizzle to keep the grockles away but 3ft waves and very clean, made for some nice riding albeit on a really twitchy board I had borrowed from a ladm9.

So, jackanory time...

We only have a relatively limited amount of willpower, so to make meaningful long-term changes, we need to form new habits. Don't bite off more than you can chew, work towards incremental progress and try to make things as automatic as possible.

If you intend to go to the gym tomorrow, pack your kit bag the night before. If you're trying to cut out unhealthy snacks, make those decisions at the supermarket rather than in the kitchen. Plan your meals ahead of time. Think about how you can structure your lifestyle to avoid moments of temptation and impulsivity, rather than relying on willpower.

I appreciate that, I do tend to want to go for the deep end, change my entire life approach. I'm impatient, I know I can't be in matters such as this.

My biggest problem is just grabbing crisps and shit on my way home, even though I have a fridge full of good food waiting for me. It's basically my habit now to binge on Doritos. I think what I need to do is make it easier for me to get a proper meal than junk, so maybe I'll start making food and keeping it in containers so I'm only ever three minutes reheating away from a home cooked meat and two veg.

I know it's shallow, but it's not just that. Cambridge United have been bordering on death for a decade now, even before we dropped out of the League. Things hit a low point back in 2011 when we were close to dropping out of the Conference and losing £300,000 a year. This tie alone was worth. half a million, the replay as much again hopefully, and the rent for the stadium is going back up next year after being negotiated down with Grosvenor Group in 2011. Hopefully this money is put into the youth team and put away for the next rainy day (it'll inevitably happen). The director is a lifelong fan of the club and did sponsored walks and marathons to get funding for the youth team, bless him.

Things have been shit for years and the last eighteen months have been some of the best in the club's history. It could only be topped by a jammy win away at Man United, but of course I don't have too many hopes for that. Equally as nice would be a good league run and to hit the playoffs.

Happy as larry though.
