From A Native Londoner To A Berliner: An Expat's Perspective On Germany's Capital

Although I have to say, after having lived in Berlin for eight months, this isn't something that I have personally noticed. I have met a lot of lovely Berliners and of course some not-so-lovely ones. So just putting it out there, Berliners are no more or less rude than Londoners, I would know, being the overly sensitive soul that I am.

Brexit Britain: A Foreign Student's Blues

All things considered, I am no longer sure I want to stay. The only consideration keeping me here is last year's £18,000 university fee - it would really be a waste not to graduate. I can only hope that as Britons are confronted by a longer non-EU queue at Charles de-Gaulle's airport and the need to apply for a visa for a weekend break in Stockholm, these attitudes will change.

Should LGBT-Exclusive Environments Exist?

Mitch Price | Posted 12.09.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Mitch Price

For many young people, self-identifying themselves in an unfriendly atmosphere swirls them into a state of disarray. Places for them to go, meet similar people and to feel comfortable are still massively important. In schools and universities, LGBT clubs and societies exist as a good network. If you are gay and don't enjoy going to gay clubs, it can be really hard to meet other gay people...

The Importance of Paul Pogba

If Mourinho can rectify what was Ferguson's greatest mistake at Manchester United, he can save the season before it starts. The pill of a potentially controversial and trophyless year is far easier to swallow when accompanied by the sugary return of a prodigal son. And not just any prodigal son, but one that could quite conceivably go on to become the best player in the world.

Ranked: England's 21st Century Tournament Performances

I can only judge based on the England teams at major tournaments I have ever seen, with the first tournament I remember properly watching being, coincidentally, Euro 2000. There is no science to this, it is personal opinion. Feel free to debate the choices below the line. Nicely...

Forget About Glenn Hoddle or Gareth Southgate - Eddie Howe is England's Man

Oli Gamp | Posted 06.07.2016 | UK Sport
Oli Gamp

Eddie Howe's teams play fast, attacking football while keeping things tight at the back- three factors many of us have never seen from an England team in our lifetimes. That is the way English football is supposed to be played, not mindless passing side to side with no clue of what to do with it.

Neo-Nazi Stickers Distress Cardiff Residents

I, personally, am the descendant of Jewish Polish immigrants who escaped the Nazis in the Second World War. To see Neo-Nazi propaganda in my hometown of Cardiff is devastating.

Five Things That Must Be Done to Save the England Team

Whoever takes over, listen: play Dele Alli as a number 10. Play Harry Kane as a number 9. Play Jamie Vardy as a striker. Play Wayne Rooney in midfield. Play with wingers (real wingers, not Sturridge and Vardy). And never, ever, let Kane take a set piece ever again. Ever.

England Must Consider the Psychological Impact of Penalties

Natalie Walker | Posted 26.06.2016 | UK Sport
Natalie Walker

Whilst England have won only 17% of their penalty shootouts, Germany and Argentina have won over 70%. Even Denmark and the Czech Republic have higher success rates. So why is it that even these smaller footballing nations have significantly more penalty success than England? Jordet identified an "ego-threat" which can cause athletes to change their behaviour when they perceive a situation as being potentially harmful or threatening to their status.

England Could Win the European Championships

Euro 96, the best England showing in a Euros tournament starring more than four teams, was also dire. Few games were settled by more than one goal, possibly the best team (Italy) again went out in the groups, and then there was David Seaman's kits. But England almost won it. It could happen again.
