I am not a great fan of Bradley W - his spoilt brat behaviour when he realised if he took part in this years TDF he would have to play second fiddle to Froome did not show him in a good light.

I know we often disagree, so you will just have to put some of my attitudes about the behaviour of the likes of BW, Nadal, Raonic, And Janowicz down to age.  I think it's a middle aged/retired teacher woman thing....!!! You have no idea how many of the current crop of politicians I also want to give a damn good hiding to.
I think everyone would like to give the politicians a good hiding!

Andy doesn't need to be there in person to collect his SPOTY. I think people finally grasp now that what Andy wants to do is win grand slams. He's not interested in schmoozing. I actually think people are starting to understand that and admire it about him. People will understand it, at least those with a brain, if they are told he's training in Miami.

Success at the O2 could cement it for Andy.

I'm not sure it would any difference. The WTF is considered important for those within the game and by those of us who follow it, but I'm not convinced the wider public takes that much notice of it to be honest.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Not convinced. Given his performance at the Olympics, it was surprising how unfavoured he was last year. I think the fact he has essentially decamped to the USA might have something to do with it, not to mention he hacked a lot of people off with his appearance fee for running part of a marathon.

Masaka, do we actually agree on EVERYTHING? The half-running of the London Marathon was a disgusting and disrespectful stunt. I went right off him. The shine also came off Wiggins for me when he threw his toys out of the pram over playing second fiddle to Froome. Injury, my arse. Look at the work Froome put in for Wiggins when he won it last year. Arrogant man.

I think Andy has a very good chance of winning this year, but I fear he'll come second to Mo Farrar unless he wins the US again and then he'd be a dead cert

I've just checked the odds at the online bookies.  Best price you can get for Andy is 28-1 ON!

It's simply no contest as far as the bookies are concerned.

I do hope he will win but I am not to sure of late. We will have to wait and see. I suspect that many people will vote for Farrar just a feeling I think the odds are stacked against Andy even with all the good things he has done this year.
