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.

We are a strange breed. For a nation with a high patriotic regard for itself, we don't half apologise a lot. We're not fond a boastful winner either. We like a trier. In truth, we're more Eddie The Eagle than Richard The Lionheart.

2016 is the biggest ever year for vegans, with brands such as Quorn releasing egg-free products, Guinness planning to create a vegan beer, and Ben & Jerry's announcing dairy-free ice creams. Universities are generally known as places that advocate this sort of forward thinking and embrace positive change. Why then do so many British universities seem so behind on providing vegetarian and vegan options in their student unions?

Police and Crime Commissioners: The Forgotten Elections

While it seems overwhelming likely that Conservative and Labour and independents will dominate the upcoming elections, it is positive news that other parties have decided to increase their number of candidates fielded. This is important for diversity of views in the institution. The prospects of a higher turnout is also good news, given that higher participation levels are associated with a stronger perception of legitimacy. It would be a great triumph for the newly established elections.

The Easter Rising that took place in Dublin in 1916 was organised by a small group of conspirators in the Irish Republican Brotherhood; a secret revolutionary movement which was founded in Ireland and America in the mid-nineteenth century. The actual Rising was carried out by a group of the Irish Volunteers, without the knowledge of most of its leaders or members, in alliance with the small citizen army led by the revolutionary socialist James Connolly. Close to 500 people died in the Rising, mostly Irish civilians - fifteen of the leaders were executed in Dublin...

People continue to parade Hodgson's constant selection of Rooney as evidence he is out of touch - ignoring the fact he also gave England debuts to Kane, Vardy, Drinkwater, Shaw, and Stones. And the fact Rooney is captain, and really quite good. If it ain't broke, don't fix it - particularly if you have some fairly stable glue to hand already.

Rugby's Most Anticipated Match-up: Billy Vunipola v Taulupe Faletau

David Ready | Posted 02.03.2016 | UK Sport

What makes this year's Six Nations so exciting is match-ups like these, match-ups that will potentially go down in rugby folklore, and I personally cannot wait for the theatre, the action to begin. A world of pain lies in wait for the defences of both teams and when these two titans have the ball, prepare for the ground to shake.
