    Yeah, I don't really get soccer. I am starting to understand why they do so many protests and placards etc. They are generally bored

      In general I don't think people go to sports games to be bored.

        Paris SG beat Troyes 9-0 today to win the French league. They are 25 points ahead of Monaco with eight games left.

        Ibrahimovich scored a ten minute hat-trick and ended up with four in the end.

            A goal worthy of winning a league, poor Newcastle have no answer

              Here I am on a March Monday night interested for the final whistle in a Leicester-Newcastle league match. Strange times.

                5 points clear with 8 games left and only Spurs can really catch them. Vardy could do with a few goals but Mahrez still looks good and that was a beauty of a goal tonight. Incidentally am not convinced Newcastle will go down, that was very good from them

                  A few corners to turn yet but spurs Newcastle on last day of season could be interesting

                    Kevin Doyle tweeted a picture of his gashed leg tonight:

                    not nice.

                    There's a bigger picture at this link - but it's definitely not for the faint hearted or squeamish.

                    I wish him a rapid and full recovery.

                      Was sure he must have broken his leg at the time. Thankfully it's "only" a gash and he won't have his chances of going to France ruined.

                        IS suicide bomber attacked a local soccer match in Iraq

                        http://www.rte.ie/news/world/2016/03...aq-fatal-bomb/

                        The bomber detonated his suicide vest as local officials were handing trophies to the players after a local tournament in the village of Al-Asriya, south of Baghdad.

                        "There are 32 dead and also 84 wounded, 12 of whom are in critical condition," an official said.

                        "Seventeen of those killed are boys aged between 10 and 16," the official added.
                        "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                        Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                            Agreed GPS. Even though more than Half of the victims were 10-16 year old kids

                                Leicester vs Southampton today, I can't claim to be a Leicester fan but it would be fantastic to see them win the title.

                                It's the most compelling story in english football since Brian Clough's Forest or maybe Howard Kendal's Everton.

                                Win today and they'll have opened up a 7 point gap with 6 games left.
