this is how distortions become seen as facts and the gullible lap them up and pass them on and they grow and grow in their mendacious veracity

next you'll be telling us about the whistles, we gullible listen to the like of Goebells, whilst you lap up the equally profane Marx. I have never read either but I assure you that both are equally tainted.

the only Marx I have read is Groucho's letters

but if you do disagree with any of my last post then perhaps you could show me where.

Sterling was caught twice, along with Jordan Ibe if memory serves. Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and John Terry were hardly positive role models but are seen as folk heroes at their clubs.

There has been widespread reporting on TV and the press of the 30th anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster. Much as this is worthy there has been no mention of Heysel some 4 years earlier where rampaging Liverpool fans caused the deaths of many Juventus fans.
