Just turned 47, my doc's been saying if there's no reason to and no symptoms to suggest it's a concern then why bother it? I have a few health concerns but none relate to my prostate, and if it had been my previous doc - an enormous Jewish, greek fella who, I suspect, is probably known to some of you who grew up in Chingford as he was a bit of a local celebrity (also had the pleasure of working with him - a gentleman to the end. RIP Rodney) - he'd known me since I was born, practically, but his fingers were maaaaassive and I'd have been very afraid.

All the docs at my current GP are women who range from hilarious to very formal, but I get on with them all... and they have much smaller fingers... so +shrug+ I'm at that age now, if they have to poke the bum, so be it.

Yeah I turned 45 a few months ago so went for the normal MOT with bloods, weight, etc but no mention of a finger up the bum.
Disappointing but certainly positive.

I should probably have an MOT as well… maybe insist on the finger up the bum 😉

An important point I have not seen raised is family history. The chances are significantly higher if your grandfather/uncle/father/brother have had it. Catch it early and survival without complications is a usual outcome. Our prostates enlarge as we get older and I think I read that all prostates get some form of cancer that is not malignant and once you reach your 70’s it is best to leave it rather than operate. As my grandfather died from it in his 40’s my mum always pushed me to go to the doctors for a check. When I went to my surgery in the 90’s they looked at me as if I was mad. The PSA test appears to be very volatile and causes much distress when you get a positive result and it turns out to be negative. Admittedly not as bad as having it. I still get the why are you here from the doctor. If there was a family history of breast or ovarian cancer in the family they would be all over the relatives for testing every three years. But for your pickled walnut it’s very hit and miss.

In the words of Rob Wotton, I guess, it raises the question, does it highlight the need for education on issues like this?

This is pathetic. The lack of understanding in some places on the history of Ireland and England is astounding.

It's ridiculous. The assumption that anybody born outside of England would want to play for them is so fucking arrogant and stupid. The guy is as Irish as they come and probably would rather pish on an England top than wear one.

Isn’t Evan Ferguson’s mother English?

Born in Ireland. His dad is Irish. Regardless of his mother's nationality, he is Irish. And you've missed the point anyway.
It’s not irrelevant. He may be born in Ireland but if his mum was English it shouldn’t be dismissed that he can play for England. He’s now stated he doesn’t and that he’s Irish but doesn’t mean that he couldn’t. The Irish team of the 90s was made up predominantly with players that weren’t born in Ireland.

The fact that this reporter asked the question is embarrassing though, considering he's already answered questions like this previously about playing for England and stated he's Irish, is pathetic. Wreaks of a lack of knowledge.

Feck me- I just listened to Monkey Keown backing Arsenal with supporting Arsenal over Arteta et al.
Keown is stealing a living- he threatened to walk out- they should have let him go.
I haven't agreed with anything he's ever said- he could argue with himself in a lift and still lose!
What a waste of space

I watched this yesterday. Simon has him on a price of string 🤣
I’m starting to think there was something in water at arse back then as Campbell has that pseudo intellectual thing about him too only to make himself look a dick, tripping himself up when he starts talking at any length or challenged.

Campbell is a deluded twat to such an extent that even the Tories rejected him when suggesting he’d like to run for them.

Had enough and blocked all content on YT.

The reason?

That twat Rory Jennings. How the hell he has been elevated to a position in which he is paid for his absolutely shite opinions.

Alex Crook can get in the bin too. Another grifter.

Not that any of them on there are particularly worth listening to anyway but it was a good way for me to stay in contact with UK footbwll news.

Not even Simon Jordan is worth it though to have to have Jennings' mug pop up all the time.

He's good a lad, what he wanted to say was, I hope England loses every fucking game they play
