Review of Olympic Boxing in General by thedevilinme

Advantages: Great contests
Disadvantages: Pain

Anthony Ogogo, that cheeky chappy who did the Subway advert, was first up for Team GB in the Boxing at the Excel, in the sort of shape you don't get from eating Subway. Holly Bleasdale, the other athlete from the annoying Subway advert, performed and look ... Read review

Review of Olympic Cycling in General by thedevilinme

Advantages: Great event
Disadvantages: Olympics is over

The crowds at the Olympics have certainly not been as multicultural as that opening ceremony, very much white, middle-class and corporate, tickets awarded on post code and salary levels by the looks, the velodrome very much in that category. But it has ... Read review

Review of 2012-13 Premier League Season by thedevilinme

Advantages: Great season ahead
Disadvantages: Hype!

So here we go again, as Whitesnake once screamed, a new Premiership season about to bury those wonderful Olympic memories in a soggy summer. And already it's off to an exciting start with the somewhat surprise move of Robin Van Persie to Manchester United ... Read review

I'm not going to argue with your assessment of City finishing on top, which I think they will be close to, but I think both United and Chelsea have strengthened and City haven't ....Yet. Should be another close season but hopefully not as close as last year !! by supercityfan
I'm not convinced that Chelsea are nailed on for 3rd. Weren't they 6th last year? Title's clearly between the two Manchester clubs, but I think it'll be United. They'll be hungry after last year and seem to have strengthened more than City (even if Tevez is effectively a new signing, same could be said for Vidic). by a-true-ben

Review of Olympic Equestrian in General by thedevilinme

Advantages: Something for everyone

Equestrian is the posh sport of the Olympics. Better riders were passed over to allow her into the team and it showed, finishing well down the field in the first event of the event of the dressage and making mistakes. Dressage is very much like your drivi ... Read review

Review of Olympic Swimming in General by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good meet
Disadvantages: No medals

Olympic swimming, like cricket, is one of those sports that the lower middle-class loves. It's not too posh and it's not for the too poor and certainly cheap to do. Dedication and heart is all you need. Public pool bustle mean you have to get up at 5am be ... Read review

Review of 2000 Olympics by thedevilinme

Advantages: Olympics!
Disadvantages: It will end next week

Review of Euro 2012 by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good tournament
Disadvantages: England were crap

England broke our hearts in the World Cup and we could take no more heartache and so the fans gave up on the national team, few travelling to the old Eastern Block and so our loss expected and so dismissed. Yes it was the same old quarter-final penalty ex ... Read review

I *never* watch football, but saw the match between Italy and Germany as I was visiting my 28yr old son last week and he put the game on 'pause' while he put Ellie-Mai to bed; then we watched the match from start to finish (not bothering with the half-time discussion as we were behind time) . . . it was surprisingly active, and the two Italian goals lively entertainment by jesi
