Differing reports.

Let's just say he was going too fast.

fair enough

I got a blow out on the Cork-Dub motorway about 2 years ago with the whole family in the car, luckily I was in the inside lane and not near any other traffic because its like someone slamming the side of the car when it happens, and that was at 120kph. If I was in the outside lane Id have been blown into the car inside me and who knows what would have happened next - it would frighten the shite out of you - he was doing nearly double that speed so wouldn't have stood a chance

You're lucky. Absolutely vital that tyres are checked regularly to ensure they're at correct pressure and adjust if driving with fully laden car. Under inflation most common cause of blowouts.

That's frightening. Thankfully all were ok. That is not exactly the best road to get stuck on. Was it down to a bald tyre or low pressure as you mentioned? Thankfully I've never had one and neither want to go through the experience.

I do keep check of my tyres. There is a guy I go to in Ballincollig and I've often gone out there for a change of tyre and he'd tell me I've roughly X amount left. Other crowds would change it. Pressure needs to be changed depending on what mileage you might be doing and how many usually travel in car.

The last father & son to sign for Real since Manolo Sanchis and his dad.

Are you forgetting the current manager?

All 3 of his sons have played for Real Madrid at various levels.
