I must admit I thought RT was banned but looks like its only Facebook Youtube and the online platforms. I just watched their reporting on the attack on the TV Aerial in Kiev and they quoted the Ukrainian Authorities as saying there were no Casualties .
I turned over to BBC , SKY etc and they are reporting the same authorities saying 5 dead. Its just blatant lies and quite an eye opener on what the Russian people have to watch. All their reporters are reporting from those 2 enclaves that were under Russian control anyway but make out its a bloodbath there when all the fighting is miles away in Ukraine proper.
I checked why it hasnt been banned here and basically they are saying the BBC is still available in Russia so its more important that at least some truth is broadcast in Russia which I can sort of agree with as if you sit and watch RT here all day in the UK when there are 5 other channels of news then there is no hope for the viewer of the channel anyway.
I think people have short memories , watched Kidderminster , Plymouth at Chelsea and several other games and obviously Saints.
We ended up with a good result and worthy I thought , the other games were fun as well. I think the FA Cup is alive and kicking , just like it was Pre-Premiership days.
From a Saints perspective I can't blame Ralph at all , if you going to blood players like Small then the cup is the way , playing fringe players against lower league opposition is the way to go. We were shite first half but he made changes and slowly introduced the talent so a well deserved win and a a good Managerial performance.
I would say Stephens has no future along with Walcott as this Level.
Small is young and didnt take his chance
The rest did enough in a fragmented team , but the subs totally turned game around.
You gotta Love the Cup , its alive and kicking which it wouldn't be if Premisership teams put out Full strength teams for it.
Cracking excitement , the Cup is Alive and Kicking .
