    Cos he's Wenger v2.

    Good at promoting young talent, happy to later sell them to the top club in the league (or in other countries). Very good at finishing just behind the top club.

    A lot of demand for it over here, for traditional bench, and a shorter 5vs5 format

    If these measurements are correct, and those are the correct hubs

    Assuming you can get only even lengths, I'd get 3/4 258 and 1/4 256

    I doubt it's as clear cut as England's training methods being prehistoric, there would appear to be some hyperbole coming from the LFC PR machine.

    Agreed, Rodgers is pissed off, as he is entitled to be. But if you are gonna sign international level players, that's the risk you take. It's like managers complaining about Africa Cup of Nations. So the player wasn't African when you bought them? You couldn't possibly expect they might be playing in that tournament?

    Of course it sucks for us, but it's a price you have to accept for having players of that quality. Personally I'd like to see clubs insist they players sign an agreement to opt out of international football when they sign. Realistic? Not sure, but it would stop these issues.

    Agreed, looks like it's heading that way. Especially as in NA we want to push the NAH Bench, if it goes well, and I don't think we can do a full bench and 3 vs 3 series in a year, it's one or the other.

    Nice! Can't see them getting it tho', has to be a NA WHBPC 2015, Shirley?

    The NAH made a commitment to support a NZ bid for 2015, if they dropped out of 2014 (as last year there were rival bids from Timaru and France, and no process to make a decision).

    In addition, after travelling far for every worlds since Berlin, it's about time they had a worlds at home, especially as the AUS/NZ teams get stronger every year. Yeah, it's gonna suck for both Europe and NA, rather than just one, and I'm sure it will be a smaller worlds, but we'll be back in NA before long (maybe a break in 2016, and then 2017 again).

    Finally, and probably most importantly, there isn't really anyone who has a firm interest in hosting a worlds in NA right now. Lexington, Ottawa (2017), Denver, Guadalajara, Las Vegas, LA have all been suggested, or expressed some interest, but nothing concrete.

    I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to NZ, but I'll try .

    Yeah, the second half was shitty.

    Well here we are again. First season I will watch from start to finish (I moved last year in week 2).

    I watched the Bills - Bears game, which was super tight, and now my #niners are killing it against Dallas. 28-3 going into half time
