A silly pom (credit to user anzacboy for calling me that) who loves sports writing.

FIFA 12, simply the best FIFA however it is quite difficult to compare generations and games people have not played before.

What is the greatest football video game of all time?

Very true, those games bring back so many childhood memories, especially Subbuteo.

What is the greatest football video game of all time?

Fair enough. He’s still declining though, even a superhuman like Cristiano Ronaldo can only slow and not prevent your body getting worse.

Why Brisbane’s gone all-in on their big-time Charlie

You’re not wrong there

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

As a Swede myself, I can confirm you are most definitely right. If they know what rugby is that is.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

You’re right, I think you can find the “Ashes hatred” in every sport, particularly the ones where England and Australia are both top international teams, such as in rugby union.

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

It seems a bit bias that every game mentioned in this article was made in the 90s. I wasn’t born when people were playing these games. (I know, how lucky of me)

“He has adjusted his diet over the years.” Do you have any proof of that? It seems to me Austin will just be another oldie A-League flop who’s way past his heyday, however I would love for him to prove me wrong and Charlie has the character to might just go and do that.

Why? He is certainly brave and independent enough to be in the top job.

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

I wonder that as well, Eddie said he was playing like a “test number 8” in the Premiership final. We haven’t seen that from Billy V in a long time.

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

Fair enough, where abroad? Because I think quite a few people in the UK have at least heard of the phrase ‘Aussie rules’.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

I also find it very difficult to support him at times.

I think you can add Ollie Pope’s name to the list of solid batsmen in point 2, sometimes he might be shaky but overall he is a very solid batsman.

UK Reaction: 'Bazball' has completely transformed England's cricket side in one series

They normally host one a year in London but regardless, London is still probably the sporting capital of the world. NFL doesn’t really bolster the argument too much.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

Yes, you are right, Simmonds and Dombrandt are both injured which can partly explain B Vunipola’s recall.

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

You’re right, but I think you’re slightly (not by much) underestimating AFL’s global standing.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

I’m interested in why you think the rugby codes are the “finest sports” and just because you like rugby more than other sports why does that place Sydney above other cities? That’s just being bias to your favourite two sports in my opinion.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

I think your first point is wrong. Globally, I think you’ll be surprised by how many people have heard of Aussie rules but as Brendan the 1st has already said, many of these people will have heard of it and that’s all, and they don’t understand the game at all and have never watched an AFL game in their life.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

Milan was on my mind but the lack of sports apart from football stopped it being an option for me. Brendan the 1st has already argued Barcelona’s case, you have a strong argument there.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

I see your point, Mumbai would probably be bottom of my nominees.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

It’s big in the athletics game as well, hosting the UK Athletics Championships right now.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

You raise a good point there.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

Good argument but Greater Manchester and Manchester are two different things. Salford, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Swindon and Bolton are all towns or cities (in the case of Salford) in their own right.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

Also Dortmund are a unique case, being one of the best supported clubs in the world and always having high attendances as they give out free tickets.

What is the sporting capital of the world?

“Rugby is pretty big”- I mentioned Racing. In my criteria, I didn’t put too much of a focus on events that the city hosted, and plus the Tour de France only ends in Paris, it doesn’t start and end there as you said. Remember we are talking about Paris, not all of France.
