The suitable investment would have to be massive and for the environment it would only be effective, if there is a political will throughout the world. Britain having clean energy will not make any difference to global warming, if there is no massive investments in renewable clean energy in other d...

Re: Fracking

This is probably a really stupid question - but based on the premise you cannot create energy you can only convert it. Surely there is an environmental impact of solar, wind and wave energies being removed. Does the planet not need that energy? No, because it all comes from the Sun (wind energy is ...

Re: EURO 2016

England v Turkey on now and an interesting lineup:

Hart

Walker, Cahill, Stones, Rose

Wilshere, Dier, Alli

Sterling, Kane, Vardy

So that's quite a balanced looking 433 formation with lots of pace, energy, and quality.

Re: Fracking

I don't think a poll has been carried out, but most people I have talked too, think it is a good idea. Looking forward we have to get our energy from somewhere. Oil production is going to decrease, renewables at the moment are too expensive and environmentalists complain about them. 20 or 30 years ...

Re: EURO 2016

I don't see how we fit those players in properly to balance the side out. Sterling best role for me is in the tip of the diamond but that's where I also think Lallana has to fit and Rooney. I don't see Townsend fitting in CM and I don't see Sturridge playing there either. My concern isn't that I th...

Yet more over-the-top negativity. Cahill is better than you're making out. You mention "spark" yet you've left out Sturridge, Sterling, Townsend, Lallana, and Rashford. You also talk about balance and these would help bring that. And of course you have "lingering concerns": you're an England fan, it...

Pretty obvious there will be a major terrorist attack in the future. That prediction has probably held true since humans have access to explosives, weapons and mass settlements.

Re: EURO 2016

I do find it peculiar that when it comes to England, people seem to be in competition as to who can be the most negative about the squad. Regardless of whether it's true or not, any squad announcement descends into a contest over who can criticise the most. It leads to utter guff, like in this thre...

Hodgson has also always been pretty clear that the players who got us through qualifying deserved to go to the tournament, so it's no surprise to see Milner, Llallana, etc in the squad over the likes of Antonio, Noble, Carroll etc. Also, Michael Antonio isn't particularly a youngster in footballing...
