Re: Bangkok Post to be delisted from the SET

running an independent news outlet in Thailand isn't really viable - unless it's a state mouthpiece which, IMO, the BKP has become. Yes, I agree wih that, one of the main owners of the BP is the family that own the Central Group, so not short of cash and it was announced a little while ago that Wis...

I have to go to Bkk hospital in the morning. I'll ask if they are still doing them.

Re: Bangkok Post to be delisted from the SET

I think the Thai Enquirer has basically given up. Apart from it's useful daily news update in PDF style format (included in Pete's daily update), it only really comes up with a couple of articles a week. Before, it was pretty cutting stuff, constantly challenging the status quo and was a go to read ...

Re: Six found dead at Grand Hyatt hotel in Bangkok

I think youre right BB, although more updates have now been provided. Apparently they were toghether to see if they could reach an out of court settlement to halt a pending court case to do with an investment in Japan. Although, I would have thought lawyers might have had a better chance at that? Ap...

Re: Six found dead at Grand Hyatt hotel in Bangkok

Well, if a suspected murder scene is meant to be left untouched and as there are no cups on the dining table, it appears that after being poisoned, at least 5 of the victims present placed their poisoned cups neatly on the table by the flasks. If the poison was meant to be more lethal than cyanide, ...

I'll add that CHARTCHAI PARASUK gives some good insight into the economy here. https://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/columnist/3764/chartchai-parasuk Yes, he would be the one I would miss. So many of his predictions from months in advance actually happen. Only yesterday, I was reading about Thailands...

Re: Six found dead at Grand Hyatt hotel in Bangkok

Interesting report. So are we to assume the others in the room were owed money by the poisoner? And where did the flasks come from? Did the poisoner travel with them, or purchase them in Thailand, as we are told no-one else entered the room once the group were all present. The Thai police seemed to ...

Re: Southgate Resigns/Who Will Replace

Last time I looked the FA said they wouldn't restrict themselves to any nationality. That they simply want the best man for the job. As for Potter, that is a complete and absolute non-starter. Rose up the ranks steadily, did a good job at Brighton, who have done even better since he left and was so ...

Re: Euros 2024

The coming home thing is contextually, a form of irony. And irony is a very particular style of British humour, not often understood by others. In the coming home example, it means we are cheering for something that we know is pretty unlikely to happen - based on 58 years of evidence - it boils down...

Re: Euros 2024

The problem has been that virtually no England player has played at the same level as their club form, so blaming Kane or any of the other forwards lets other players off the hook - maybe our team isn’t quite as good as was made out? Tactically, the team has been unbalanced from the start, with no ...

Re: Euros 2024

At the end of the day, England just didn't perform well in the final, and our passing was off throughout, sometimes just behind a player, sometimes just a shade too far in front, but it was disruptive to our efforts and handed possession too often to Spain. But we could go on forever analysing the r...

Re: Euros 2024

But I do like what Linekar has said, that Spains win was a victory for football. I agree with that. With Southgate, it's all about data, stats and margins to govern how the team is selected and play, including when substitutes are utilised. It's like painting by numbers, efficient yes, but with no h...

Re: Euros 2024

Well, I would argue we didn't play all of our best players, whereas we stuck with Kane who is probably currently our worst player. And that affected our tactics and performance in each game. I think Southgate has been great for the national team by restoring credibility and I can imagine him as a fu...
