Sheeran strikes me as one of those (rare) acts that's more impressive live than recorded - first time I've ever watched him live as he uses his pedals and whatnot...

BBC's most extensive ever coverage (unless I'm mistaken) but not a second of footage from any of the dedicated dance music areas?

That's Brexit right fucking there...

46. I'm their step-dad, but brought them up from 5 and 3. Neither of them like a The Smiths or Bedrock

Doffs cap to Grant.

Amen to that but hang the fuck on for one second... 

You've had 17+ years to influence, cajole and downright manipulate and yet they still don't like The Smiths or Bedrock?!

Not sure 'the data' was needed mate - Vettel's skills and temperament let him down badly - 10 second penalty for a potentially dangerous display of petulance like that seemed lax to me...

Foo Fighters really not my thing so swerved - best thing I've heard so far was Kate Tempest

Has anyone ever been linked to as many clubs as this Mbappe kid is being linked to?!

Radiohead are absolutely grim as fuck. Proper good time party festival music for the clinically depressed. Tom Yorke looks like hes been put through a combine harvester too. Fucking racket

Mate, apart from misspelling 'Thom' I couldn't agree more...

Fucking BBC going on and on and ON about how diverse Glastonbury is and how there's such a ridiculous amount to see and do but instead of broadcasting any of that in prime-time they put fucking Radiohead on for two fucking hours - why not get a roving camera out in the margins and bring us a couple of hours of absolute fucking mayhem...?

Not for me.  That'd be the one where Sasha battered the BT tracks for the first time.

Banging

Not a single BT track in that one Dan...

*edit*

Pretty sure I meant this one, although it was a fucking long time ago and this sort of shit has never been my strong point...

Wasn't there also an absolutely epic Sasha NYE Essential Mix from the mid '90s?

Yeah, I think Phil's spot on - if Rooney, Costa, et-al truly are just mercenary cunts then they'll regret not having gone in January 'cos that's a pretty large piss that the Chinese government have just taken on their domestic football's fireworks.

Ah, there's a slight condition to the 'tax' I wasn't previously aware of - only applies to loss-making clubs...

The new ruling, which the CFA has introduced, will take effect from 19 June, and will result in clubs effectively having to pay double the price if they are not posting profits.

as for the new suppression. this is being covered by international news and was headlines here for most of the week. canadian & US news doesn't fall under the UK d-notice jurisdiction and they are reporting exactly the same as UK.

I think a lot of the MSM gets by on very lazy journalistic standards mate - i.e. in this instance, 'if the BBC are reporting it then that's our report too...' 

Think it's already well established there is no so-called-D-Notice restriction applicable here.  But it is equally well established that the difference between the official line and numerous unofficial sources is considerable.
