A victory for love: what I learned at a coronavirus wedding
There were only 15 of us and we had to wear masks and wait outside, but it was still a joyous occasion. Even a man in a British Gas van jubilantly blasted his hornAfter competitive sourdough and competitive who-has-it-hardest, the virus now brings us competitive unsentimentality. Some people do not care whether or not weddings go ahead or Christmas is cancelled, and they would like it noted that this is because they are grownups.Others care a great deal, and this is because they are not robots. I am more worried about Halloween. I can predict the wild street scenes, half the houses wanting to keep things festive for the kids, the other half bog-eyed at such irresponsibility, neighbour against neighbour, festering resentments giving way to full civil war, with a bunch of seven-year-olds in the middle of it all, dressed as ghosts. Which, now I come to think about it, sounds quite fun. Continue reading...

Public Enemy: What You Gonna Do When the Grid Goes Down? review – not Chuck D's finest hour
(Def Jam)This mashup of tracks from a free album and retreads of classics should have been a mixtapeYes, Chuck D has earned the right to make as much average music as he wants. What’s dispiriting is that the genius who devised the deathless definition of rap as the black CNN remains so stuck on the History channel. This is an uneasy mix of songs gussied up from a 2017 giveaway album and weird microaggressions towards 80s classics such as Public Enemy No 1.Half man, half megaphone even at 60, Chuck is a very specific talent who feeds on combative backing tracks forged to fit his voice. A parade of golden age guests – B-Real, Ice-T, Run-DMC – looks great on the credits, yet even Nas struggles with Fight the Power: Remix 2020, sheepish rhymes swallowed whole by that ravenous, lupine Bomb Squad beat.

Patrick Bamford heads late winner to give Leeds victory over Sheffield United
Assumptions can be dangerous things. Just ask Patrick Bamford. So few pundits thought the Leeds striker was capable of scoring goals at Premier League level that most expressed astonishment when Marcelo Bielsa retained faith in a forward whose goal return has not always matched the quality of his movement.Three games into a season in which Bamford has already scored three times, such opinions are undergoing rapid revision to the extent that his 88th-minute headed winner in the first Premier League meeting between these teams for 26 years prompted – still slightly fanciful – suggestions he should earn an England call-up.

Rob Baxter steels Exeter for ultimate peak after 10-year journey to the top | Robert Kitson
Momentum is with Exeter after their win over Toulouse but they know they can take nothing for granted against RacingIt will soon be the 10th anniversary of Exeter’s inaugural trip to France to play the first European away fixture in their history. They still talk about that October weekend with particular fondness, as much for a feisty 34-19 Challenge Cup victory over Bourgoin as the epic post-match party that followed, and a similar sense of wide-eyed excitement is now evident a decade on.You could see it etched all over the faces of Joe Simmonds, his brother Sam and all the other Exeter players dashing to share in the celebrations of the 70th-minute try by their young captain that sealed the fate of the four-times European champions Toulouse on Saturday. If they can maintain the same emotional energy and purpose against Racing 92 in the final at Ashton Gate on 17 October, the holy grail of European domination will be within the West Country’s grasp.
