    FC - Season 24

    A new season arrives.....and I forgot to set orders! Luckily we're playing UGTF who are mid rebuild and having 6 all rounders means no real disasters. However one of our main bats has missed out and we have a trainee bowling. Shouldn't matter though. Opening week gates as rubbish as ever...

    Scudamore Is A Mad Fool

    I hope you’ll ignore the sheen of cold sweat across my face today. I’m not ill, I’ve just been reading those interviews with Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore.

  16. First Class Footballer, Second Rate Sportsman

    Alone in the 18 yard box, dejected with a painful expression on his face. He's missed the penalty, yet the Santiago Bernabeu is rocking.
