Czego w artykule brakuje, to informacji, że SMP prawdopodobnie przekazało Williamsowi część środków na sfinansowanie sezonu 2019. W przypadku zakończenia współpracy ekipa z Grove będzie musiała zwrócić te środki. #F1pl
To tłumaczy wysokie kwoty jakich Williams ma oczekiwać za fotel od nowego kierowcy. Jest pewnie próg opłacalności i dopóki nie zostanie osiągnięty, to zmiana z finansowego punktu widzenia nie będzie się zwyczajnie opłacała. #F1pl
Tyle można znaleźć w oświadczeniach prasowych... 😂😂😂
Autosport / motorsport zmienił nagłówek swoje tekstu, bo pierwotnie sugerował on że Kubica jest numerem jeden na liście Williamsa na tytuł mówiący tylko tym, że nadal jest na liście kandydatów. Zrobili to po interwencji zespołu. Same wypowiedzi Kubicy z wywiadu się nie zmieniły.
Trudno powiedzieć czy autor się pośpieszył i wyciągnął inne wnioski niż powinien, a może wie coś więcej, ale nie mógł tego otwarcie napisać. Słowa Kubicy brzmią jednak jednoznacznie: decyzję podejmie w ciągu kilku dni.
Of course we’re collectively looking at career opportunities, however this is certainly not our philosophy and strategy. I hope to announce my future plans soon, be patient 😉 2/2
Here we have a rare example of a GIF you can actually hear. TOMA. 💪

Haas had argued that the cars had been designed by Force India, but as Haas knows only too well, "outsourcing" is legal. The stewards decided that "there is no regulatory support for the argument that Outsourcing of Listed Parts cannot come from a former or excluded team."
In determining this, the stewards also came to the following conclusion: "In relation to the submission by the Racing Point Force India F1 Team that it is not a new team, the Stewards decide that the Racing Point Force India F1 Team is indeed a new team."
This will have a big knock on effect for Haas in its continued arguments over the rights of RPFI as relates to its eligibility and rights under the complex payments structure. Haas has argued all along that RPFI should be treated as a new team and tread the same path that it did.
TLDR? Haas lost the fight but may have won the war. In having its argument that Racing Point hadn't designed their own car thrown out, they gained clarification that RPFI was a new team.
The drum which has been incessantly beaten for the last two years in declaring that this self-imposed flagellation is "the will of the people," can no longer be struck if the deal concluded divides that same majority on whose shoulders its resonance rested.
Of the (up to) 7,000 additional seats, (up to) 1,800 will be premium.
The proposal would see #lfc's overall "official" capacity increase to 61,015, split by:
Main Stand - 20,676
Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand - 11,348
The Kop - 13,024
Anfield Road Stand - 15,967
The proposal includes a covered fan zone within the expanded stand itself. #lfc
The "exploded" view of what the redeveloped Anfield Road stand would look like by level. #lfc
Boxing Day Test - we lose Virat, Ajinkya takes over captaincy, with a forgettable loss still lurking. We carry a record of not winning at the 'G while chasing. Aussie win the toss & elect to bat, meaning we'd have to bat fourth.
With Shami gone due to injury, Bumrah leads from the front making sure the Aussies bundle out within 200 with the other bowlers chipping in at regular intervals. Ashwin picking Smith for a blob is the most special part of it all.
At 64/3 & in the danger of conceding a lead yet again and under immense pressure, captain Rahane chips in with a 💯 which is at par with his Lord's knock & with Jaddu's contribution lower down, India manage a lead of 131.
Siraj, the son of an auto rickshawman, having lost his father before the series & not being able to attend the funeral, plays his debut Test, tears up during the national anthem. He was the highest wicket taker for India in the 2nd innings wrapping up Aussies for 200.
Let's have a little thread to celebrate 12 months of extraordinary commitment.
We kicked off the year with Football Fans in Training.
Alison wasn't actually a @PartickThistle fan (albeit she kinda fell for the Jags with help from her partner). This was her story... 💪🏽
\u25b6\ufe0f Watch | Alison is our latest FFIT hero. She admits she wasn\u2019t even a football fan, but loved the support and camaraderie of our programme. It helped encouraged her to lose four stone!— SPFL Trust (@SPFLTrust) January 18, 2020

Also in January we revealed that @JamTarts would join our @JoyofMovingUK programme, becoming the third club in Scotland to deliver the project to primary schools, across Edinburgh.
In Feb, we revealed @CashBackScot is to fund a new SPFL Trust project with five @spfl clubs / communities trusts to tackle anti-social behaviour.
Off the Bench will feature:
Both stories reveal how much of a humble human being he is. And one blows my mind because it dismantles what we think about the evolution of sports.
Where is the thread? Love when you give us your take on these players. The KC Jones piece was outstanding. Had no idea.— Bweasey (@Bweasey) December 27, 2020
The first is, that there is an assumption that today’s athletes are faster, stronger, etc. which is is based on ZERO evidence.
For instance, Wilt Chamberlain benched 465 lbs at 59 years old. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he benched 500 lbs on the set of Conan the Destroyer
Most basketball experts say Wilt has the highest vertical leap in NBA history. A few others argue that Michael Jordan did.
I think they’re both wrong.
Well let me tell you a story:
In 1956 Bill Russell was selected for the US Olympic basketball team
During this time, pros weren’t allowed in the Olympics, so the International Olympic Committee tried to say that he was ineligible since he had already signed with the Celtics, even though he hadn’t played yet
Luckily, Russell prevailed and led the team to the gold medal as the captain.
But if they would have stopped Russell from playing for the US basketball team, he would have STILL been in the Olympics.
Because Bill Russell was one of the greatest high jumpers I. The world.

Debunking the Myth that Ron was never a midfielder
Likes and retweets are all appreciated😍
Actually, this wouldn't be something we debate on provided your birth wasn't delayed😭 but it is what it is and am going to enlighten you newbies.😁
Take a seat and watch cox I won't be repeating myself after this, so I need your full attention. You can pause the p*rn for now😉
Back in 2003 when Ron was signed by united, Beckham had just been sold and left a berth on the right side of the mid. Ron came and took over his position as well as his shirt(the famous No 7). He was a kid with dazzling skills and swept fans off their feet with his play on debut
In his first season, he won united player of the year while scoring only 6goals in 40appearances 😭(can you explain to me how a forward can win by scoring this few) and he won this as a midfielder(still the only outfield player to win the award most times)
In his second year at United(2004), Ronaldo was named in UEFA TOTY as a Right midfielder, this time winning it without scoring a goal in the UCL(i mean how can a supposed forward make it to UEFA Toty without scoring a goal) yes, you were thinking right😉 he was built different😁
Story from @Ram_Guha edited book, 'The Picador book of Cricket'
The cricket championship tournament of Philadelphia was called The Halifax Cup. King used to dominate in this series. From 1904 to '08 he won the Batting Cup 3 times & the Bowling Cup 4 times, & he twice exceeded 300 in an innings, once in 1905 vs Germantown & in 1906 vs Merion
It was during this period that one of my favourite cricketing stories has its origin. It has been told and retold so many times that obviously there are many versions of it, but all scepticism apart, I would like to believe it to be true.
So the story happens at a Halifax Cup match between Belmont (King's team) vs Trenton at Elmwood. The Trenton captain missed his train, and when he arrived on the ground about an hour late he found that in his absence his side had won the toss and batted and were doing badly;
by the time he had changed and got ready to bat, 9 of the side were out & he had to bat #11.On his way to the wicket the Trenton Cap apologized to his opposite for being so unpunctual, adding unwisely that his team wouldn’t have been in such a mess if he hadn’t missed his train
Yes, it’s played in South Asia and the Caribbean (which is a thread in itself!) but I’m talking about cricket specifically here in Oz and more specifically in Sydney communities.
For some context. I grew up in Western Sydney and I have Lebanese heritage. This is important to note because growing up I didn’t know a single Lebanese-Australian person - kid, adult, man or woman - who played, watched or talked about cricket. ZERO.
Cricket was never on in our home (several reasons for that) and nor was it ever on in the homes of anyone I ever visited. EVER. This is not an exaggeration.
To give you an example of how much I did not know about cricket, I only heard of Richie Benaud when he died. (To be fair, I knew Steve and Mark Waugh because they were from Bankstown and sometimes in the local Torch newspaper. Also, I knew Shane Warne because of hair-loss ads).

Indeed there was a country... and there was also the Biafra Football Club.
In the dying months of the breakaway Republic of Biafra, a group of idealistic young football lovers gathered together
in Valls, Barcelona (Spain) to honour the heroic struggle of The Biafrans .
They created a symbolic pennant and founded the Biafra Football club in order to draw world attention to the plight of Biafra, using one of the most potent methods known to humanity.
CF Biafra had about a hundred players from Reus to Pla, from Nulles to Tarragona they settled in El Vilar, within the federated amateur league and rode all the way to the Third Regional League.
Half a century later, the golden anniversary of the Biafra football club
Though now extinct, Biafra , to those idealistic young men, was a mirror for their own struggles . In their perception, their own region of Catalunya ( Catalonia) was going through the same situation at the hands of the Spanish government as Biafra was
experiencing, at the hands of the Nigerian government.
They found a common bond and affinity with the Biafra struggle through the formation of the Biafra football club in Valls.
The club existed until 1978 when its activities were truncated by lack of economic resources.
Are Manchester United shooting and allowing shots more frequently in the 20/21 PL season?
RTs appreciated :)
#MUFC rank 3rd for volume of shots in the Premier League this season. United also rank 1st for SoT but that is not a surprise when you consider that they have scored the most goals in the league.
Sh/90 = 14.3 (5th)
SoT/90 = 5.48 (=2nd)
Accuracy = 38.4 % ( 3rd)
Yes, #MUFC do well for shot accuracy but it has to be mentioned that 32% of #MUFC’s goals came in two games - against Leeds United and Southampton. Similarly, 23% of #MUFC’s shots came in three games - against Newcastle United, Leeds United, & Southampton.
At this rate, #MUFC are projected to finish with roughly 540 shots this season. That’s roughly 2% more than last season. That number is equivalent to 14.2 shots per 90 minutes. Again, a marginal increase from last season’s 13.9 shots per 90 minutes.
Hitting the target:
If #MUFC maintain their current level of accuracy, they will finish with 5.47 shots on target per 90 minutes, which is once again more than last season, again only slightly more.
These are very fine margins that could prove vital come the end of this season

This thread is based on the fantastic When We Were Kings podcast with the blessing of its creators @ErikNiva & @andreassonhakan. Because the podcast is in Swedish, I wanted to translate the story and share it in English.
Disclaimer: this is NOT a dig at River Plate. My book's title/front cover overwhelmingly suggest that it's exclusively about Boca Juniors - that's not the case. I'm 100% neutral when it comes to Argentinian fútbol. This thread is not written to antagonise River fans!
June 2008. River Plate win the Clausura 2007/08 title (a 19-game half season) with Diego Cholo Simeone as manager. It's their 35th league title! River's attacking players: Radamel Falcao, Alexis Sánchez, Ariel Ortega, Sebastián Abreu, Diego Buonanotte, amongst others.
10/08/2008: The story of River Plate’s relegation in June 2011 starts on 10th August 2008! River Plate draw 1-1 away to Colón de Santa Fe on the opening day of the Apertura 2008/09 - it would be a bad campaign:
P19: W2/D8/L9. Cholo Simeone resigns after 1 win in first 14 games
