Time goes too fast.

There has been more time lapsed between KK beginning his first managerial stint and now then there was between the Fairs Cup win and KKs first managerial stint.

Ginola et al feels like yesterday

......about the inner German border.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Sky Bet

In 2015, Sky plc sold an 80 percent stake in the company to CVC Capital Partners] with Sky retaining a 20% stake in the company and agreeing to a long-term licence of the Sky brand. In 2018, CVC and Sky agreed to sell Sky Betting & Gaming to The Stars Group.

n May 2019, Fox Sports announced a partnership with The Stars Group to develop sports betting platforms (including free-to-play, and real-money gambling in states where it is legal) for the U.S. market under the Fox Bet banner—becoming the first major U.S. sports broadcaster to introduce a co-branded sports betting platform. As part of the partnership, Fox Corporation acquired a 4.99% stake in the company. There was also an option for Fox to acquire up to a 50% stake in The Stars Group's U.S. operations within the next 10 years.
