  3. County's Web of Lies About to Unravell

    Just as the Notts County faithful were beginning to come to terms with their new found regality and success, it turns out Sol Campbell's departure might just be the tip of the iceberg that sinks them.

    Stupid England Get There Slowly

    The signs of improvement are visible, but Fabio Capello's mission to revitalise the England team is still some way from completion. There were moments, during this frustrating, attritional non-contest, of class and sophistication, but sporadic style couldn't eclipse the fact that this side are...

    A bullet with Avram Grant's name on it.

    He took them to within a slip of the European Cup and a Steve Bennett of the league, but when a bullet with Avram Grant's name on it came whistling in from the Chelsea boardroom it came as a surprise to absolutely no-one. This good, proud man had always been the wrong choice as Jose Mourinho's...

    2007/08 season

It's as if there is a private competition between...

    I know this is not very PC but....

    Monday I got a call from a new cutomer called "Timothy" who has been recommended to me by the gay lads that invited me to the dinner party (See previous poll). Basically as you would expect he was looking to come into the office with his partner to chat about a mortgage for a penthouse he has...

    Talk about Fantasy

    Every week I do a Mortgage Express preditctions league where basically all brokers that like football try and predict results from across the 4 divisions. You also get to guess which one player from all the games mentioned is most likely to score the most goals This week our home game to...
