    Question Having a pony infront of your other half?

    Last night we had friends over for dinner. Mrs DtS is without doubt the best cook in the world and she delivered a wonderful Prawn Jambalya for the four of us to enjoy. As the other couple went home having both had a decent bit of grub and a few drinks we were both busting for the loo. Being...

    EPL Has Nothing To Fear From Below

    If you think it's tense at the top of the Premier League, you should see The Championship at this stage of the season. With a collection of runners and riders who all seem incapable of stringing consecutive wins together, it's the division that no-one wants to win. Wolverhampton Wanderers have...

    Five From Five

    England 2-1 Ukraine Crouch, 29 Shevchenko, 74 Terry, 85 It was his strongest display of emotion so far. As the final whistle blew, Fabio Capello marched out of his technical area, raised his clenched fists to the sky and roared triumphantly. This was a far more impressive scoreline than it...

    Gary Hooper-Guardian Scouting report

    Have to admit I liked Hoops as a player for us though I never thought he'd make the grade any higher than League 1 or 2.The valuation here is pretty generous too I feel. <League OneScouting report: Gary Hooper, Scunthorpe United The 20-year-old Iron forward has a good touch and can play at...

    Football Must Refer To Cricket

    If you've been keeping an eye on the cricket recently then you'll have noticed some interesting experiments taking place in the West Indies. No, don't worry, England are still reassuringly hopeless, they'll never toy with that. It's the officials who are changing; test-piloting a new system of...

    The return of Robbie Keane to White Hart Lane may have brought an end to his miserable six months on Merseyside, but it leaves Liverpool fans with one pertinent question; just what on earth is going on behind the scenes at their football club? On the pitch, in their most important season for...

    Scolari Knows The Price Of Failure

    Luiz Felipe Scolari is all too aware of the ramifications of failure at Chelsea. High expectations and high expenditure means a low tolerance for poor results. "Now we need to beat Cluj," he said after drawing with Bordeaux on Wednesday night. "But if I thought my players did not have the...

    Wiggy's reserve team rating's today!

    Luiz Felipe Scolari

    If Luiz Felipe Scolari has learned anything in his first month in English football, it's that Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't waste any time in welcoming new rivals to the Premier League. The Manchester United manager's snipe about Chelsea players and their advanced ages came whizzing in under radar...

    How To Poop At Work

    We've all been there but don't like to admit it. We've all kicked back in our cubicles and suddenly felt something brew down below. As much as we try to convince ourselves otherwise, the WORK POOP is inevitable. For those who hate pooping at work, following is the Survival Guide for taking a...

  12. TV Pick of the Day 09-05-08

    Of course....most of you lucky gits will be at the game and those of us that can not get there will be watching it on Sky. But If there is a slim chance that someone is not watching it for what ever reason.... These are my recommendations for tonight. For you Apprentice fans..Mr Sugar in on...
  13. B.A.G.’s Partly Political Broadcast

    ‘It’s all About the Oil’ Since I began posting on this board, you, my fellow Zoners may have noticed that I am a contrary fellow who relishes a good argument. I’m not sure if I was made this way, but I do know that there were three years of my life that were pivotal in my development as an...

    Fergie Should Have Stayed Quiet

    You would think that Sir Alex Ferguson would know better, wouldn’t you? The last time he announced retirement plans, before the start of the 2001/02 season, Manchester United completely lost their focus and slumped like a Tottenham player at closing time. Between October and December of that...

    Hopkins v Calzaghe

    Joe Calzaghe vowed to end Bernard Hopkins' illustrious career when the two men came face to face in London to hype their Las Vegas super-fight. The undisputed super-middleweight champion will fight Hopkins at the light-heavyweight limit on 19 April. "This will be Bernard Hopkins' last fight,"...

    A Christmas Tale

    They don't do it in Germany, they've long since given it up in Spain and the French would be astonished if you suggested that they should give it a try. The Christmas football fixture list is a curiously British and Irish disease. With almost every other civilised nation doing the sensible...

    Nudity in front of ones family.

    Was out with Ben from work last night and got battered at Monument so I feel rough as a dog. Mrs DtS had her Mum over last night. She is a lovely woman and we get on well - Despite the fact she is French and speaks like Officer Crabtree from Allo Allo. Anyway I got washed and dressed well early...

    A Moral Dilemma

    Ok, Went out for a beer tonight and had a good time. I got chatting to this scouse girl sitting at a table in the bar and we got on really well. We had a good laugh and really seemed to get on with each other. We must have been talking for ages as the waitress in the wine bar had brought us...
