• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Sports personality of the year


With andy Murray being knocked out at Wimbledon today, that has also knocked out his chance of winning SPOTY. He's now a long shot after being fav for most of the year.
Assessing the contenders for the award now should be a easier task. England's failure in the World Cup means an English footballer has no chance. Carl Froch could have been a lively outside bet if he wasn't so arrogant and unlikeable, I just can't see him being the "housewives" choice.
Lewis Hamilton is a definite contender, should he win the formula one title, but it's Chris Froome who my early money is going on.
The British publics love of cycling has seen three of the last six SPOTY winners come from the sport.
Froome is part of cycling team sky, and is worthy of being short priced favourite to win the Tour de France. Success in the ultimate cycling event would surely see him pick up the sports personality trophy in December.
Best price I've seen is 7/2. That could look huge in a few months time


Like all good anti post bets, you take 7/2 for a lump, and within days he drifts out to..... 300/1!!
Fell off his bike and broke his wrist along with his favs chance of winning the tour and SPOTY!
You gotta laugh......

The Uncouth

This year it should be the great Ronnie O'Sullivan.
He has achieved everything his sport has to offer and set so many records, the man is a genius on a snooker table and it will be many years before we see a natural like him.
It still amazes me that he has not yet be made a Sir.
Arise Sir Ronnie O'Sullivan....G.O.A.T
...... totally agree after all his heroics against the Aussies. That innings alone to draw level at 2-2 must live long in the fans memories. :drinks:
