  1. Players contracts

    This is a general football post. It really annoys me when players try to dishonor/ force an issue with their contracts by stating they will not play for their clubs (example Berahino, Sterling). Of course if they can earn loads more money etc they will most probably want to go, but if the...

    Broadband advice

    Guys Finally, just 9 days left until I can say my divorce is completely over. Unfortunately, in a last bit of spite, as himself is moving out of the family home, he has contacted all the utility companies and suppliers to cancel all the accounts payable by direct debit under his bank account...

    Awkward gift situation

    Got back to Germany this afternoon, and my housemate presents me with a Christmas Present, in the shape of a new set of headphones. I'm quite chuffed, as these might not be expensive, but they're decent JVC ones, and he's put some thought into it. I did say to him before he gave them to me...

    I'm sorry Mr Martin

    I was going to post this on the tread about the AGM, asking if anyone going along wanted to say a quick sorry to RM from me. Instead I have just decided to mentioned a slightly embarrasing encounter I had with Mr (and I think Mrs) Martin at the weekend. I was having breakfast in a cafe in...

    West Ham Fans Fall Short

    Having successfully unjinxed Nicklas Bendtner last week by lampooning his form in front of goal, I wanted to use this week's column to state, quite categorically, that there is not a force on earth that can save Southend United from relegation and financial oblivion. Got that? Hopeless cause. Ha...

    Local Results Round-Up For 2 March

    In the Ryman Premier, it was heartbreak for Billericay Town, beaten 1-0 by a late late goal at Maidstone United to slip back into the relegation zone. Massive result in Ryman One North. Second placed Concord Rangers shocked leaders Lowestoft Town with a 5-0 hammering. East Thurrock United got...

    No Blind Spot, Wenger's Just Too Loyal

    Much will be written in the coming days about Arsene Wenger and his perceived ‘blind spot’ for goalkeepers. It is the death knell for thousands of trees, all doomed to slaughter just so that we can be told that one of the finest managers in the history of the Premier League cannot even recognise...

    Natalie Sawyer

    I don't know if anyone is watching Sky Sports News right now, but I'm finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate. I swear that Natalie Sawyer used to be a skinny wee slip of a girl, all cheekbones and youthful awkwardness. She's changed. She's...erm....blossomed. That's no girl. That's a...

  16. England's Second String Made to Swelter.

    A second string England team fell to a single moment of brilliance in Doha, in an otherwise completely forgettable international friendly. As has become a familiar case for the meaningless friendlies outside of qualification matters, the England side consisted of Wayne Rooney, Gareth Barry...

    Awkward moments at work

    Being aroused at work... Has this happened to you? So there we are sitting at the desk drifting after lunch on a cold winter's day as I normally do and I start thinking of smashing 7 shades out of Jennifer Lopez. I naturally get barred up and excited with a little smirk rising and a bulge in...
