    I was inclined to agree with the argument on ball weight.

    But then realised energy = 0.5* mass * velocity**2

    So halving the mass only works if the ball speed has not risen by more than sqrt(2).

    So it may not be quite that easy.

    physics was my weakest subject when I was a young ‘un at school:confused:. So no idea. Just know I read about the weight of the balls they used 40-50 years ago and made sense to me about the link between heading it and dementia of those footballers who have died recently - I think Jimmy Hill was also mentioned. Very sad indeed.

    It's just a fact. The boys U-17 World Cup was played at the same time and it was clearly at a higher standard, making the appeal for equal pay in the women's game all the more ridiculous.

    22 points ahead. Ok, I am beginning to believe the title is in sight and 30 years of hurt are coming to an end. :p

    So Man City caught doing football the equivalent of Sarries. Premiership points deduction to follow. Part of me has no sympathy for their oil money. Although They have a point about PSG not being penalized as well.
