    Shootings in toulouse and montauban......islamic connection?

    It started with a soldier being shot dead in Toulouse by a person on a scooter just over a week ago and this was followed by three soldiers being gunned down in Montauban last Thursday. All of the soldiers were magherébin (arab) and I started to think of an islamic link..........joining the...

    Another twist in the story....possible Sainsbury's takeover!!

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/epic/sbry/7878028/Sainsburys-shares-rise-5pc-on-Qatari-bid-speculation.html If the takeover does go ahead this summer, what will this mean for the new stadium development? Could we be the second non-premiership club to have rich arab backers...

    I don't want to start yet another argument on the rights and wrongs of the issues in the Middle East, but this story interested me. (You can never find these articles when you need them so I thought I would highlight it now.) BBC The point is that people don't ever seem to believe that the...
  4. Lady Luck limps back into Liverpool

    Liverpool haven’t exactly had the best of luck this season. Karma paid it back with a vengeance tonight as troubled Merseyside club recorded a precious win against a Spurs side battling with them for that coveted 4th place finish. The game started at a tentative pace, with Spurs looking to make...
  5. Pay Up Pompey, Pompey Pay up

    It never rains, it pours... Except in Portsmouth, where the football club seems to permanently be in the grips of a category 5 hurricane. The south coast club are gripped in a relegation battle they seem destined to lose and the mystery surrounding their owner seems to deepen by the day. The...

    Notts County

    What a shambles of a football club. Their manager Hans Backe has now quit the club and apparently the players have been told that there is only enough money to pay them for December and January. It just goes to show that you should be careful what you wish for. Those Arab "backers" properly...

    Will this turn out to be...

    ...another storm in a Shrimperzone tea cup? Here we are again... 2 days before the end of the club, we're going into administration, the clubs been mismanaged, what a load of bloody tripe that comes from the mouths of some (and not who you might think I mean)... Jesus we all love to react don't...

    It's A Yeung Man's Game

    Carson Yeung's imminent takeover of Birmingham City is a watershed moment for English football. For the first time in history, half of the Premier League is in the hands of overseas investors. Ten clubs, ten multi-millionaire owners, but does Yeung really have a chance of success in the...

    Sven Will It Go Wrong?

    In 2001, in the wake of the dotcom crash, I lost my job. For 18 months, I had been the deputy shift leader of a surly band of financial journalists, charged with staying up all night and reviewing the first editions of the newspapers for a raft of corporate clients. It wasn't much, but it was a...

    SGE to be appointed Notts County boss today!

    Sven-Goran Eriksson expected to be announced as Notts County's new manager today!? New Arab owners + greedy swede makes perfect sense :D Only mentioning this (besides the news factor) as I have a soft spot for County (used to live near there) and I think their set-up is at least CCC level and...

    Garry Cook's Gamble

    I don't want to appear rude or patronising, but something has been bothering me for a while now and I need to get it off my chest. Does Manchester City's chief executive Garry Cook actually understand how football works? I only ask because the evidence is really starting to pile up now. He...

    Is this finally it?

    Well, there has been some times in my life, where i thought war was imminent. However, i think it could be it now, having just seen islamists protesting in several countries, including England, i wonder if it is about to "go?" ... I thought when Russia took on Georgia, it may have been close...

    Ricey Reports: F1 Pre Season News. 1/12/08

    Credit Crunch Hits Hockenheim. Hockenheim could join a host of Formula 1 casualties just two months shortly after the Canadian Grand Prix was slashed off the list due to them not being able to pay the commerical rights. The French grand prix has also been removed off the list due to have the...

    The Saturday Alternative: Shrimper in Suffolk

    Cannot quite face the trip up to Carlisle this Saturday? But still at a loss re what to do (and we cannot rely on Blues World)? Well, the real alternative option is here. At 3.00 pm this Saturday 6 September in the Deanery Gardens in Hadleigh, Suffolk, SHRIMPER THE DOG is going for a hatrick...

    Robinho. Plays For City. Weird.

    Robinho plays for Manchester City. Robinho. Plays for Manchester City. Go on, say it out loud. It doesn't sound right, does it? Nevertheless, thanks to piles of recently acquired Arab oil money, one of the best footballers in the world will soon be wearing the same sky blue shirt that so...

    Interesting EU Report

    The EU Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia commissioned a report to analyse who was behind a wave of anti-Semitic attacks within the European Community. When it found that most of the perpetrators were young Muslims of Arab descent, and 'were only seldom from the extreme-right milieu'...

    Defeat in pub TV football appeal

    1-0 to the money men IMHO, I notice a lot of pubs round here have started exploring this loophole. They will probably have to get rid their Arab systems as a result of this hearing. Taken from Aunty Beeb: A publican has suffered a setback in her High Court battle to use a foreign broadcaster -...

    The fbm view and ratings - Birmingham

    BATTLING BLUES PUT BRUM OUT TO SEED Southend pulled off one of the results of the season by deservedly claiming all three points on the sponge that is now the St Andrews pitch. On an all too rare fbm awayday, the result rounded off a decent visit to England's second city. Travelling up in the...
