The person I know of who has put it best is science-fiction/fantasy writer David Drake, a good chunk of whose work is best classified as horror and is really about his experiences as an interrogator in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the 'Blackhorse', when it went through the Cambodian market town of Snuol..." * Tyler Cowen Quotes Tim Blanning on a Coach and Four : "London-to-Manchester by land in 1750 was like London-to-Sidney by air today in lots of ways.

South Africa end day four on 117-4 as they chase England target of 492 – as it happened

Paul Allott set to become director of cricket at LancashireThe Recap: sign up for the best of our sport coverage 7.09pm BST So, 375 still left to get for the least likely victory. But having slumped to 52-for-4 early, with Stokes on fire with two in two balls, it looked for a moment like there wouldn’t be a fifth day. Gutsy from Elgar; competent Bavuma. A massive journey to survive three sessions, but these the only two who could realistically steer such a thing. All that said, England have shown again today they have considerable firepower. They really should go ahead in the series 2-1 tomorrow.Righto, that’s us for today. On behalf of Vish and myself, thanks for your company as always. You’ll have Rob Smyth and Daniel Harris steering the ship from 10:30am in the morning. Until then, have a nice night. 7.06pm BST 38th over: South Africa 117-4 (Elgar 72, Bavuma 16). Okay, 7pm nearing, so it’ll be Broad for the final over of the day. He’s up at 85mph by the middle of the set, so he’s bending that one-year-older back of his. And angling into Bavuma, moving away the way he does better than anyone. But nothing doing. Stumps. A single around the corner means Bavuma will be up the business end when they return tomorrow.

Lee Bowyer: 'My life has changed – I don't need to justify myself to anybody'

The former Newcastle and Leeds midfielder is now assistant manager at Charlton, where he started his career more than 20 years agoIt becomes easier to understand what drove Lee Bowyer back into football when he describes his frustration at the outlook held by the school his eight-year-old twins, Charlie and Amelie, first attended. “It was all about taking part,” he says. “And I’m like: ‘That’s not life’. You should want to win, want to be the best at whatever you set out to do. You have to have that balance where you know that winning is good.”Bowyer was ultra-competitive as a player – too competitive, Terry Venables once told him – but the thought of transferring those instincts to the coaching side rarely occurred. Yet here he is, in an office at Charlton Athletic’s training ground, almost a month after being named assistant manager at the club where he started out. It is, he says more than once, “a fairytale” when he stops and thinks about it, particularly given that he had never formed a long-term plan to stay involved in the game. Continue reading...

England’s Mark Sampson ramps up mind games for France Euro 2017 clash | Louise Taylor

The Lionesses have not beaten France since 1974 but their bullish coach is confident of quarter-final victory on SundayA late Gothic weigh-house sits in the middle of Deventer’s handsome main square. Alongside it hangs a copper cauldron once used to perform gruesome executions involving miscreants being submerged in boiling water.Happily behavioural norms in this charming former Hanseatic trading town on the river Ijssel in the Netherlands are much modified these days. Even so, should the simmering verbal contretemps between Mark Sampson and Olivier Echouafni spill over into the technical area on Sunday night, there would surely be few objections to a vat of iced water being chucked over the pair.

Naby Keïta will ‘100%’ stay at RB Leipzig, coach tells Liverpool

• Ralph Hasenhüttl: ‘Keïta is more focused on us and has more fun now’• RB Leipzig in London for Emirates Cup, where they lost 1-0 to SevillaRB Leipzig’s coach, Ralph Hasenhüttl, has delivered a shattering blow to Liverpool’s hopes of signing Naby Keïta by describing the chances of him moving to Anfield as “null”.His confidence that the Guinean midfielder will stay at the Bundesliga club did not even offer a sliver of encouragement to Jürgen Klopp. “The chance [of Keïta leaving] is null,” said Hasenhüttl. “It’s 100% clear that Naby will play this year in Leipzig. At the beginning of the transfer period we said we would start with the same team and of the players we had last year no one will go. That would be our answer now also. For us everyone can see how important Naby Keïta is for our game. It’s 100% sure that he will be with RB Leipzig in the Champions League.” Continue reading...

The forgotten story of … Fred Spiksley, wing wizard, film star and POW escapee | Simon Burnton

Fred Spiksley dazzled as an outside-left, but found his far-reaching coaching ideas spurned in England after success abroad, having also dabbled in film and been embroiled in a wartime escape missionIn the words of James Catton, the greatest football writer of his time, “Fred Spiksley’s control of the ball, his individuality, and his pluck for a man of modest stature, without much weight, were amazing. He did all his ball work with the outside of the right foot. In fact, Fred Spiksley could do almost anything he wanted with either foot, and was a sure marksman. Spiksley as a football player was a wonder.”Ernest “Nudger” Needham, who was to win 16 England caps while at Sheffield United, was part of the Staveley defence that lost 10-0 against Spiksley’s Gainsborough in 1891. “Our captain told me to shift from left to right to stop the outside-left,” he recalled. “I might as well have tried to stop the wind. The outside-left was Fred Spiksley, the finest outside-left I have ever met and whose dribbling was a treat to watch. He could either combine with the others and make openings by lively centres, or cut past the back on the inside to go for goal himself. He could also shoot with either foot. I shall never forget Freddy’s dazzling wing play in 1898, when England beat Scotland 3-1. Ah, Fred was a gem of a player in those days!” Continue reading...
