(Up)hill-hater who is new to the cycling world (love at first ride) and trying to make up for lost time by immersion in trying different models, materials, building, buying and selling different bits (hopefully without losing too much money) until I settle on a few things that really suit me in different circumstances.

    problem sorted - he had the wrong sized spacer(s) - possible a washer that was merely masquerading as a spacer!

    thanks for your time/input

    very loose like rattling pretty much - i've just msgd to confirm everything. yeah, 1.85mm spacer for 10sp on 11sp hub. The fact he's popped it on his other wheels and it's sound suggests the cassette Shimano HG-500 is sound. He did say the first sprockets (you know the 3-4 fixed/fused ones) are seemingly looser.

    Pal passed on some wheels (Miche Primato hub) he said was running shimano 10sp (although some time ago as wheels have been gathering dust for a while) putting an HG-500 cassette (with spacer) and the current owner of the wheels has found there's a massive gap between the free hub and the cassette (imagine a ring donut sat around a matchstick!) so it's rattling around like no ones business. If I haven't explained it well enough, I would really appreciate it if someone would have a look a video (WhatsApp!) which shows the issue and let me know what's going on (the fact the cassette slips over normally - although loose - and the splines clearly look shimano is confusing me!)

    what am I seeing but missing - either freehub not shimano (what is it then) or weird cassette thing going on but is fine on other hoops so can't be!

    cheers

    completely agree although it at least allowed 'us' to get hold of the ball and pull Denmark around a bit and create space especially on the right for players to run into. I would also like Grealish to start and perhaps play a bit more of a traditional midfield with Rice the holding/defensive minded one (only given I thought Phillips was ineffective yesterday) but Saka has to stay as his constant movement off the ball is so important to give other players freedom. Whatever allows 'us' to isolate the Italian defenders one-on-one

    Good summary - thought Kane was excellent (Spurs fan bias too) but you're absolutely right; there was a clear period when he started to move out to the flanks to pull the defence apart and create space for others. How many times was Pickford's grumpy teenager face shown yesterday?

    I think Denmark played really quite well and forced a tempo that another team hasn't managed against England up until that point - pressing high and hard in a way that England had done against other teams. That said, it certainly took its physical toll as, especially with 10 men at the end, they looked out on their feet.

    I actually thought Phillips was relatively ineffective last night - he made one decent snapping interception but I'm sure I counted at least 5 times he was pulled out of position and bypassed completely often being just half a yard too early or late which I thought was poignant and clearly meant either he was targeted or just wasn't quite on his game. I was concerned with the number of times Denmark were able to play 30-40 yard central passes from their edge of the centre circle type area straight through the England midfield to start attacks 35 yards out - they seemed to constantly win the second/third/pinball exchanges too. Re: the 'pen'. Sterling was bumped by the second defender which probably stopped a clear and obvious mistake but yes it was soft; that said, in the prem the Kane one would've been given I suspect. Never seen England in a major final so very much looking forward to it and there's no question, as good as Bonucci and Chiellini are, they will not relish being one-on-one with Sterling Sako, Sancho etc; England definitely need to afford less general space in the middle third mind - we've seemed often to have defensive players in the first third, attacking players up top and not much in the middle.
