Obviously not. Hennessey isn’t the world’s greatest keeper but suggesting he has improved because of competition is basically calling him unprofessional and lazy because it is suggesting he simply couldn't be arsed to improve before because he didn’t have to, because no one was going to take his place.

I would imagine it is down to better coaching, better defence etc.

I think the added frisson of knowing if you don't perform, someone will take your place in the team is a key driver for players in team sports.

Its not suggesting that they are unprofessional, but a team with competition for players in key positions will normally outperform one without that factor.

TV advertising that uses actors pretending to be real people off the street. Fabrication!

The fact that the ‘critical reception’ part of movies on Wikipedia almost always have a quote from Roger Ebert

TV commercials associated with women's 'bits'. To many.

Early riser taking the hammocks by the pool and ‘reserving’ for his family. Karma achieved when pool manager removes all belongings an hour later and frees up for other guests. Angry man now arguing with pool manager - he shoulda read the pool policy.

I was on holiday recently and the Brits were worse

Talking to people on the phone that must be wearing those head-set things...

I know I'm going a little deaf, but I'm pretty sure it's not all me. I'm forever saying, "say again", "excuse me", "one more time", etc., etc.

Also I tend to just say, "Yes" when I don't hear them properly, which apparently is not always the right answer! :wallbash:

The British on holiday are a f*cking disgrace, even in Britain.
