    So if I have an iPhone SE I can stream to my Xbox One?

    I don't know, but I do agree with the "beast" thing - especially as the white equivalent would be Andy Carroll or Alan Shearer who probably would be more likely to be called "an old-fashioned centre forward". Which means that the use of "old-fashioned" suddenly becomes incredibly loaded.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Martin Schanche did one of the most amazing bits of car control I've ever seen. At Brands, the rallycross circuit turns in before Paddock Hill Bend. Schanche arrived in his RS200 and somehow (well, not for him) ended up facing the wrong way. He kept his foot in it and slid down the hill sideways facing back towards the pits before switching through a 180 to get through the chicane. Ridiculous car control in a car that - by todays standards - wasn't easy at all. I was a big fan of Whitstable Will. Shame the 6R4 was underpowered compared to Mark Rennison's RS200 E2 - it was only due to Gollops talent and the handling of the 6R4 that he could keep it close. So much so that he had to strap twin turbos to the 6R4 to be competitive. Neither could hold a candle to the 206 T16 E2. That thing was a rocket. The reason for that huge spoiler on the back was that the car had a dodgy balance, when going over a bump it would flick the rear up and if you were lucky, just land heavily on the front wheels. So they strapped a wing to the back, not just for downforce but to try and weigh it down a bit.

    I’d have gone with 75% shit myself.

    I have no idea. SnakePlisskenUK is the gamertag.

    Mainland. I’ve three starred everything on Fortune Island. Given up for the moment and moved towards three-starring some of the story chapters.

    Done all the Speed Zones and Speed Traps. Just the Drift Zones to go. I hate Drift Zones.

    Have you ever completely mastered a game?

    Chalk up another who mastered Wizball on the C64. I sometimes fire up a C64 emulator just for a half hour blast through things. Clumsy Colin: Action Biker is one I can complete first time even today. Same, ironically enough, with Impossible Mission. I was unbeatable by either AI or Human on Super Sprint on the Amiga and the brilliant Ferrari Formula One.

    He was given more money than most to get Newcastle out of the Championship, and spent more than Burnley (while raking in less) to finish three places behind them. While telling every journalist he can (off the record, natch) that he loves whichever club he is at, loves the fans and the only thing stopping him taking them to glory is a convenient hate figure of a chairman / board who won't let him spend money millions of pounds on players he'll dump after 18 months. Despite the fact that he just won't quit because he loves the club and doesn't want to let down the fans. He's done it for two years running and it's so... transparent.

    Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland

    I've always said that if I grow old as disgracefully as Billy Connolly then I'll die a happy man. I saw him on his last tour - the Parkinsons had really taken hold but there was so much love in the room for the man it didn't matter. He just delights in ordinariness, in the way that if you just step back and look at it from a slight angle, then people just do stupid and silly things all the time and his gift for recognising that and transmitting it back is unbelievable. I mean, who on this planet doesn't recognise the whole thing documented in the Itchy Bum routine?

    Basically he was given a lot of money to get Newcastle out of the Championship and once they did, promptly sold most of them. Then has spent the rest of the time blaming Mike Ashley for not giving him money. It's worth pointing out that Benitez described last years tenth place as a "miracle". No-one pointed out to him that Burnley got to 7th despite spending less on wages.
