‘We’d play in the street until dark’: the day I was photographed by Bruce Davidson

Cheryl Winterson on being captured by the Magnum photographer near her home in south WalesI lived on this street from the age of two. Opposite, out of shot, is the Ebbw Vale steelworks, where my father worked after he left the coalmine. I remember the red dust from the chimneys; it would leave specks on the washing. Our mothers kept a constant eye out to see which way the wind was blowing.The building at the end of the terrace, with the Wall’s ice-cream sign, was the corner shop; I lived next door at number two, with my parents and brother. There were no cars in the street, so we used to play here until it got dark: hide and seek, hopscotch, ball games, kick the can. I knew all the children in the area. My school was just up the hill and I used to go home for lunch. It was a happy and comfortable childhood. Continue reading...

Fall in iron ore price prompts rethink on grade differentials

As the iron ore market gathers in the Czech capital of Prague this week, a reevalution of iron ore products may be underway, based on lower pricing and changes in supplies. This may be increasing an urgency to stay competitive and secure attractive outlets. An overriding issue will be the recent 40% or so decline […] The post Fall in iron ore price prompts rethink on grade differentials appeared first on The Barrel Blog.

Top 10 unlikely romantic heroes in fiction

From the disgusting appeal of Christian Grey to the neglected charms of Shakespeare’s Don Pedro, Jenny Colgan picks her favourite difficult dreamboatsIn my other job as a romantic comedy writer, I like to write attractive heroes, for obvious reasons. But when I write sci-fi (as Jenny T Colgan), the type of chap is very different. Sometimes – when I’m writing for Doctor Who, for instance – there isn’t really a romantic hero at all (or there shouldn’t be, unless you’re still mooning over those old David Tennant episodes). When I started writing Spandex in the City, I was interested in people who date superheroes. It’s meant to be something you would automatically want to do – look at Batman and the gorgeous Vicki Vale; Spidey and Mary Jane, Supes and Lois. But actually, going out with a superhero would be awful. They work nights, they’re hyper-intense, constantly distracted – oh, and you might get killed. Only Iron Man’s Pepper Potts seems to get the point that it’s a terrible pain in the neck. So for this book I was working within slightly more difficult parameters than, say, a nice country vet called Will. Continue reading...

Anthony Watson: ‘The All Blacks are good but we will try to dominate them’

The 23-year-old wing talks about Lions choir practice, rooming with Stuart Hogg, the good and bad of touring New Zealand and his fear of being finedBeing selected by the Lions for the first time is a step into the unknown for players in the professional era who socialise with opponents after matches considerably less than their amateur predecessors. When the Bath and England wing Anthony Watson arrived at the Lions training camp in the Vale of Glamorgan last weekend there were, aside from his club and international colleagues, faces he knew but not their owners.By the end of the week that had changed. The bonding process started on the first night when the 14 players in attendance were asked to come up with four songs, one for each of the home unions, that would be rehearsed before the squad left for New Zealand on 29 May and sung during their time there when they arrive in towns and cities and are greeted by locals. “Bonding is a huge part of being a Lion,” says Watson.

Congratulations To Roger Ailes

Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening! President Trump was visited by the president of Colombia and thankfully didn’t make any public comments about how Penn is a much, much better school with much, much more beautiful students. Roger Ailes died, marking the end of a man whose tenure atop of the Putnam County News & Recorder was rife with controversy. And news broke that Kevin McCarthy said last year he believes the Russians are paying Donald Trump — a development that until Trump we thought would ruin someone’s career but then Trump happened and literally nothing matters. This is HUFFPOST HILL for May 18th, 2017: DEMOCRATS’ GREAT WEEK BEING RUINED BY JOE LIEBERMAN - Joe Lieberman was to the Senate what that guy who was way too needy about his gluten intolerance was to your wedding. Ali Vitali: “President Donald Trump said he is ‘very close’ to choosing a new FBI director with at least one senior White House official putting the odds of a selection as early as this Friday at ‘better than 50-50’. Speaking to reporters at an off the record lunch, and reiterating the comments on camera moments later, Trump called former Sen. Joe Lieberman his top pick. Multiple officials tell NBC News that Lieberman is the current ‘frontrunner’ for the job…. On Wednesday, Trump met with Lieberman, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating, and former top FBI official Richard McFeely. Lieberman demurred when asked by MSNBC if he would accept the job should it be offered.” [NBC News] A senior Democratic Senate staffer floats the idea to us that senators will vote for Lieberman out of a very passive aggressive form of spite: “To be honest, since everyone who gets close to Trump sees their reputation go down the toilet, some Democratic Senators may be only too pleased to vote for him,” the aide writes. “It will be the sendoff we never got to give him when Obama let him off the hook in 2009.” That aide also writes: “The entire democratic caucus thought we could finally be rid of Joe Lieberman…. NOOOOO!!” Another senior Democratic Senate aide framed it to us somewhat more charitably: “Pretty much anything would be a step up from No Labels.” @markseibel: Feinstein says Lieberman doesn’t have experience to run FBI. She says right person is Andrew McCabe. Politics and law enforcement don’t mix TRUMP IS NOT MAD. THIS IS FUNNY TO HIM ACTUALLY - Igor Bobic: “President Donald Trump on Thursday denied asking former FBI Director James Comey to scuttle an investigation, and said the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s meddling in last year’s presidential election is detrimental to the U.S. state of affairs. ‘I believe it hurts our country terribly because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country,’ Trump said in his first public remarks about the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to probe the Russian controversy.” [HuffPost] No, this is funny to Trump, really. He’s definitely not mad online. Oh. “Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, told senators on Thursday that he knew President Trump planned to fire James B. Comey as director of the F.B.I. before he wrote a memo outlining the reasons for his dismissal, according to three Democratic lawmakers who were in the briefing.” [NYT’s Matthew Rosenberg and Rebecca R. Ruiz] WHAT D.C. PROGRESSIVES ARE TALKING ABOUT TODAY - You know, aside from impeachment. Nancy Scola: “[A] small collection of non-partisan tech upstarts will Thursday call on the DNC to toss its exclusive digital-tools-plus-data contract with NGP VAN, the progressive company that has held it for a decade. The challenge to VoteBuilder, as DNC’s system for keeping tabs on voters known, reignites long-simmering Democratic data wars. But the new petition, called ‘Unlock the VAN,’ is complicated by being led by a Los Angeles-based non-partisan firm — NationBuilder — that has celebrated its use by Republicans. But it isn’t about ideological purity, say signers. It’s about unleashing the best tools…. The DNC, for its part, seems resistant. ‘Data is the crown jewel of the Democratic Party and we have a duty to protect it,’ said communications director Xochitl Hinojosa, via email, when asked about the push. ‘We are in the business of electing Democrats and not bending over for consultants who want to make a buck.’” [Politico PRO] Like HuffPost Hill?

Send tips/stories/photos/events/fundraisers/job movement/juicy miscellanea to [email protected] Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill ROGER AILES: HE DEAD - Thoughts and prayers to whatever exists after we depart this vale of tears. Michael Calderone, Sam Levine and WIlla Frej: “Roger Ailes, who spent decades advising political candidates and presidents about the power of television in American life before building Fox News into a media juggernaut ― and who left that network last summer following multiple allegations that he pressured female subordinates to have sexual relationships with him ― has died. He was 77…. Ailes biographer Gabriel Sherman tweeted Thursday that Ailes had experienced complications from a blood clot last week while in Palm Beach, Florida…. Jarring new details are still coming out about the toxic workplace culture he allegedly fostered for women and people of color. There are several ongoing lawsuits, and federal investigators are still determining whether 21st Century Fox, the network’s parent company led by the Murdoch family, properly notified investors about payments to Ailes’ accusers.” [HuffPost] TRUMP CAMPAIGN HAD 18 UNDISCLOSED CONTACTS WITH RUSSIANS - Ned Parker, Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel: “Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters. The previously undisclosed interactions form part of the record now being reviewed by FBI and congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia. Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.” [Reuters] Flynn isn’t exactly being warm toward the Senate intelligence committee. CHAFFETZ STEPPING DOWN EARLY - This way he can spend more time with his family who will help him get to the bottom of Hillary’s emails. Paige Lavender: “Chaffetz, whose term was set to last until 2019, confirmed the news in a letter to constituents, saying his last day will be June 30. The news comes less than a month after Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, announced he would not seek re-election or ‘be a candidate for any office in 2018.’ He also hinted in an interview with Utah’s KSL Newsradio that he was considering leaving before the end of his term. While he left open the possibility of running for governor of Utah in 2020, Chaffetz said he wants to spend more time with his family. Sources told Politico that he is considering joining Fox News.” [HuffPost] POSSIBLY THE MOST TRUMPIAN STORY THIS WEEK - Guess the president’s trip to Toledo, Spain, will have to be called off. Jack Moore: “President Donald Trump has canceled a planned visit and speech at the ancient mountain fortress of Masada in Israel after authorities told him that he could not land his helicopter on top of the UNESCO-listed site. Instead, Trump will now deliver a speech at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. It comes after an Israeli Air Force (IAF) regulation that prevents helicopters landing at the summit of the Masada site, according to Israel’s Channel 2 broadcaster. Unlike former presidents who have made the trip, such as George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Trump declined to land the helicopter at a base of the historic site and then take the cable car up, preferring to cancel the visit altogether.” [Newsweek] THIS IS NOT THE KEGGER PAUL RYAN WAS PROMISED - Amber Phillips: “On Thursday, at a weekly news briefing during a week that has been anything but normal, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) tried desperately to steer his small slice of Washington back into some normalcy…. It was in vain. At news conferences, reporters get to ask questions. And after Ryan was done talking about what he wanted to talk about, reporters immediately started asking him about the half a dozen massive news stories from the past 12 hours alone that, taken together, raise even more questions about whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.” [WaPo] KEVIN MCCARTHY, NEVER CHANGE - Our take: 1) Kevin McCarthy probably doesn’t have any hard evidence because he’s always too busy taking selfies at fundraisers. 2) Like everyone else, Kevin McCarthy is a human with two eyes and probably believes there are ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia. 3) Kevin McCarthy is so, so bad at all of this. Adam Entous:  “A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin. ‘There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,’ McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.” [WaPo] The dateline on that piece: “KIEV, Ukraine” BECAUSE YOU’VE READ THIS FAR - Here’s some solid goat content. WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE - Solid — and by that we mean completely depressing — man-on-the-street stuff from AP. Steve Peoples, Bill Barrow and Thomas Beaumont: “President Donald Trump’s loyal backers say they don’t know, don’t believe or don’t care about the explosive revelations that forced the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate possible collusion between Russia and the Republican campaign…. ‘I tuned it out,’ said 44-year-old Michele Velardi, a mother of three sons, during a break from her job at a Staten Island hair salon. ‘I didn’t want to be depressed. I don’t want to feel that he’s not doing what he said, so I just choose to not listen.’ … die-hard Trump supporter Joseph Amodeo, 19, incorrectly praised the president for raising New York’s minimum wage, something enacted by Democrats in the Legislature. The college student had little understanding of the Trump administration’s deepening political struggles, but he offered a stern message to Trump’s critics.” [AP]COMFORT FOOD - A ceiling… made of bees. - A guide to the your next big Netflix binge. - The origins of Juicero.

Harlequins’ Kyle Sinckler: ‘If I have not got fire in my belly I don’t want to play’

The tight-head admits being shocked by Lions call-up but, aided by his mentor Adam Jones and England’s Eddie Jones, says he has learned from past setbacksKyle Sinckler spent his first night with the Lions rooming with Taulupe Faletau at Wales’s training base in the Vale of Glamorgan. It would have been hard to find two more contrasting characters: Sinckler is larger-than-life and loquacious while Faletau, a tourist in 2013, is laid back and laconic.The pair followed each other into the interview room. Faletau, the Wales and Bath No8, was first up, unfailingly polite and generally replying to questions in one sentence. Sinckler bustled in, shook everyone’s hand, decided the high chair reserved for him in front of the screen plastered with sponsors’ logos was not the safest construction for a prop of his build, picked up something more ergonomic and held court for 20 minutes before shaking the hands of all the reporters again and leaving with the broadest of grins.

All You Wanna Do Is Ride Around, Sally -- And Expose Malfeasance

Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening! Sally Yates gave damning testimony to a Senate panel about Mike Flynn, while Mike Flynn was presumably off somewhere wishing he had been more vigilant about switching cabs. A poll finds the AHCA is roughly as popular as Nickelback, Congress and a bunch of other people we wouldn’t mind seeing lose coverage of their pre-existing conditions. And Bill Clinton is releasing a novel with James Patterson. We’re especially excited for the first paragraph, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of mild budget surpluses, it was the age of Zubaz shorts, it was the epoch of Judy Woodruff on CNN, it was the epoch of the swing revival.” This is HUFFPOST HILL for Monday, May 8th, 2017: ANOTHER GREAT NEWS CYCLE FOR THE PRESIDENT - Ryan Reilly and Jessica Schulberg: “Sally Yates, the federal career prosecutor who served as acting attorney general for the first 10 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, told a Senate subcommittee on Monday that she warned a top Trump administration official that appointee Michael Flynn was ‘compromised’ and ‘could essentially be blackmailed’ by the Russians. Flynn, then Trump’s national security adviser, provided information to Vice President Mike Pence that the Justice Department ‘knew to be untrue,’ Yates testified. She described a meeting with White House Counsel Donald McGahn to discuss concerns about Flynn’s relationship with the Russian government. ‘To state the obvious, you don’t want your national security adviser compromised with the Russians,’ Yates testified.” [HuffPost] Nothing like a little witness discrediting to start your day off right: “President Donald Trump attempted to undermine former acting Attorney General Sally Yates by attacking her in a Monday morning tweet ahead of her Senate testimony on Russian hacking in the 2016 election and the extent of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russian officials. ‘Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Counsel,’ [Trump tweeted].” [HuffPost’s Marina Fang] HOUSE CONSERVATIVES OPEN TO WATERED-DOWN AHCA -  Even though everyone knows the House repealed Obamacare last week, it looks like they’re humoring the Senate. How kind.  Matt Fuller: “House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) has already been working with Senate Republicans on what changes House conservatives could live with, knowing that the Senate bill will probably undo some cuts to Medicaid and perhaps a key amendment that brought conservatives onboard in the first place. ‘If it’s moving to the left, we just need to make sure we’re not losing too many conservative votes,’ Meadows told HuffPost on Friday. ‘Obviously it’s going to get more relaxed as it relates to the Medicaid expansion.’ One massive change that House conservatives could accept, perhaps even welcome, is to ditch a dominant feature of the House replacement: the advance refundable tax credits. Instead, conservatives may just take some changes to the Obamacare subsidies. ‘The fundamental question is going to come down to the tax credit subsidy in place, or do they drop back to an Obamacare modified subsidy,’ Meadows said.” [HuffPost] Like HuffPost Hill?

Send tips/stories/photos/events/fundraisers/job movement/juicy miscellanea to [email protected] Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill OBAMA WARNED TRUMP ABOUT FLYNN - Trump was presumably too worried about asking Obama if all his people would stay on to listen.  Paige Lavender and Alana Horowitz Satlin: “Former President Barack Obama warned President Donald Trump about hiring retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn during a meeting in November 2016, NBC and CNN reported Monday.  NBC reports the warning came days after Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. During a 90-minute discussion in the Oval Office, Obama cautioned Trump about hiring Flynn, who was later brought on as national security adviser. Earlier on Monday, Trump attacked Obama for giving Flynn security clearance. Obama fired Flynn from his position as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in his administration in 2014 over reported leadership clashes.” [HuffPost] OUR LONG NATIONAL NIGHTMARE WILL NEVER BE OVER - Burgess Everett and Sarah Ferris “Over the next several months, Republicans will have to figure out how to cut deals with Democrats to avoid a default on the national debt and avert a government shutdown, among several other must-pass items. But the negotiations will unfold against the acrimony of the GOP’s Obamacare repeal effort and a bruising fight over tax reform, none of which are likely to inspire trust between the two sides. Though Congress avoided a government closure this month — a major bipartisan legislative accomplishment for an institution otherwise devoid of any this year — a quintet of critical deadlines in the early fall will force either a furious round of deal-making or brinkmanship that could have dire effects on the economy. It will be a major test of Trump and the all-GOP Congress’ ability to govern, and the Republicans are bound to be blamed for any problems, given their dominant political position.” [Politico] POLL: WIDESPREAD DEATH NOT POPULAR - Americans, it seems, are not overly keen on having ill friends and family depart this vale of tears. Ariel Edwards-Levy: “Thirty-one percent of Americans favor the American Health Care Act, which narrowly passed the Republican-controlled House last Thursday. Forty-four percent oppose the bill, which would repeal much of the current health care law. Another 25 percent are unsure. As was the case during the GOP’s failed attempt to pass the bill in March, Americans are more likely to be intensely opposed than even modestly supportive. Just 8 percent say they favor the bill strongly, with 34 percent strongly opposed. Americans say, 39 percent to 26 percent, that the AHCA would likely be worse, not better, than the current health care law. Just 14 percent believe the AHCA would make things better for them personally, while 27 percent say it would make things worse. A near-majority, 49 percent, say they don’t expect the bill to affect them very much, or that they aren’t sure what effect it would have.” [HuffPost] QOTD: “This is a great time to be alive, isn’t it? I still have all my teeth. There is no war.” [New Statesman] If you read that piece, make sure you read Jason Linkins on that piece. SEAN SPICER’S CONNECTION TO REALITY STILL REALLY SOMETHING - In terms of dilution-level, it falls somewhere between “your mother after learning you’re gay” and “Toronto Raptors fan.” Marina Fang: “White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday defended President Donald Trump’s executive order halting travel and immigration from six majority-Muslim countries by claiming that the administration has been ‘consistent’ on referring to it as a ban. ‘I know how we talked about this from the first day of this administration: as a travel ban,” he said. ‘We’ve been very consistent since the first day of this administration on this.’...However, when the executive order was first unveiled in January, Spicer denied that it constituted a ban and blamed reporters for calling it one. ‘He’s using the words that the media is using,’ a frustrated Spicer said, in response to reporters’ questions at the time.” [HuffPost] KNOWLEDGE HAVING THE WORST WEEK IN WASHINGTON - Man, if only knowledge had a better comms team, y’know? Nick Visser: “The Environmental Protection Agency has removed several members from an internal review board meant to provide scientific advice to the agency, a move some say could impair future research into climate change and provide sweeping benefits to polluting industries. The news, quietly announced on Friday, affects the EPA’s 18-member Board of Scientific Counselors, which reviews the agency’s own research in an effort to ‘sustain and enhancethe quality of science.’ The New York Times reports at least five members have been dismissed from their roles after serving a three-year term, and E&E News said up to a dozen could eventually be let go.” [HuffPost] RAUL LABRADOR TOTALLY BOOFED IT - Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) told his constituents on Friday that “nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care,” in what may have been one of the least true political statements of all time. [HuffPost] BECAUSE YOU’VE READ THIS FAR - Here’s what it’s like being a bucket of water that cows drink out of. Feel your empathy grow. BILL CLINTON AND JAMES PATTERSON RELEASING NOVEL - Considering the bar Bubba has to clear is that terrible collection of poetry Jimmy Carter released, we’re sure this will be a smashing editorial success. Andrew Rafferty: “[Bill]Clinton and famed author James Patterson are working on a suspense-filled new novel, titled ‘The President is Missing,’ that aims at providing readers ‘behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power,’ according to a release from publishers Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown and Company. ‘Working on a book about a sitting President - drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works - has been a lot of fun,’ Clinton said in the release. The book will be released in June of 2018 and will be the 42nd president’s first novel. The pair will also go on a book tour around the novel’s release.” [NBC News] DELANEY DOWNER - Former President Barack Obama is to blame for layoffs currently happening at a factory in Indiana, President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “Rexnord of Indiana made a deal during the Obama Administration to move to Mexico,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Fired their employees. Tax product big that’s sold in U.S.” Rexnord announced in October that it would close the plant and replace it with one in Mexico. Sunday night’s tweet is Trump’s second public comment on the company’s plans; he said in December that the layoffs were vicious. “He made the tweet back in whenever he made the tweet and he did nothing until now,” Don Zering, president of the United Steelworkers union at Rexnord. “That wasn’t nothing but him just blaming it on Obama,” Zering said. “Obama’s not in there anymore.” [HuffPost] COMFORT FOOD - A monument to runaway capitalism is being transformed into a monument to runaway capitalism: Apple is offering the first details of its renovation of Washington’s Carnegie Library. - Stevie Nicks once appeared in a self-defense book put out by her bodyguard. - We desperately want to ride this new Japanese luxury high-speed train.

Corbyn says Labour faces 'challenge on historic scale' to win general election – live

Analysis: Conservatives reap the rewards of Brexit tough talkTories profit from Ukip collapse amid Labour lossesLive results tracker: local and mayoral elections 2017The Snap: sign up for our daily election email – and read today’s 8.09pm BST In a 15-minute speech in Manchester on Friday night, Corbyn accepted Labour’s performance was mixed. He began, not by focusing on Andy Burnham’s emphatic win, but on a Labour hold in Oxfordshire – David Cameron’s old stomping ground.We were defending a county council seat where our candidate, Laura, had a majority of 10. She now has a huge majority because there was a big swing to Labour in Oxfordshire.We’ve had results around that country that have been variable. I understand that, we all get that. I congratulate every Labour candidate for all the work they did in the election yesterday and the run-up to it, especially those that won in Cardiff, in Swansea, in Neath and Port Talbot, in Doncaster.We gained seats in often very unlikely places. I was talking to some friends this evening in Kent, in North Ramsgate, where they gained some seats. Don’t let the media write this story, let us write the Labour story. 7.56pm BST Several hours after Burnham’s triumph, Jeremy Corbyn came to Manchester for a victory rally. Hundreds of activists joined him on the steps of Manchester Central, the conference centre where the result had been announced. Burnham was not among them.Celebrating an incredible victory for @andyburnhammp. pic.twitter.com/giEwC94Bkq Continue reading...

Is Graham Alexander the king of multi-club goalscoring consistency? | The Knowledge

Plus: more non-league European football heroes, goalposts or nets on club badges and sacked despite being immortalised in bronze. Send your questions and answers to [email protected] or tweet @TheKnowledge_GU“During my afternoon coffee break Wiki-crawl, I came across the career statistics of Robbie Earle,” mails Joe Ward. “Port Vale: 294 appearances and 77 goals; Wimbledon: 284 appearances and 59 goals.

Has anyone got anything close to identical – and significant – statistics for clubs in their career?”It would be particularly weird if any player had identical records – we haven’t found one yet, although the challenge is still there for any readers with enough time on their hands.
