    Rambling musings when you wake up slightly hungover with not enough sleep.

    Damn, it doesn't matter what time I go to bed (2.30am) and how much I've had to drink the night before (plenty). I still wake up at 6.30 even on a Sunday and well before the alarm clock which is set for 8.30 to wake up a girl I was out with last night as she is going sailing all day today and...

    Evening Wasted On Pointless Big Cup

    Through, but only just. Chelsea survived a scare to book their place in the next round of the Champions League, but their progression was anything from straightforward on another nervy night for Luiz Felipe Scolari. Roma's victory over Bordeaux meant that this result was academic, but there was...

    I didnt go to Plymouth today after what happened at Roots Hall last Saturday, the first time I have ever let the result of a match dictate whether or not I travel to an away game, but by mid morning I was feeling both incredibly guilty about not going down there to support the boys and also...
  13. Tilly spot on

    Someone has posted that we should try to avoid becoming the Champions with the lowest points total in the history of our division. Aside from the argument that that's Academic - it could simply mean we were the best of a better-than-average bunch - it got me thinking about how many points...

    Hope it's an academic question, but do you think he's on their shortlist?

  16. Scunny form

    As Sc**thorpe have managed seven points from their last twelve and are in a dip and we have managed five from our last twelve are we in a slump? I feel their form is academic. We are better than them and will prove it on friday.
