    A couple of months ago i asked if anyone fancied taking me on via the Gameknot internet chess website.

  3. Chess!!!

    Anyone on here play chess? - I started playing online about 18 months ago (I still can't really play that well on a board). If anyone fancies a game I'm on a site called Gameknot & go by the name "Pawncollector" - (Yeah I know). I have done ok against players of my own ability but soon get found...
  4. Shut Up Wenger...

    When Ryan Shawcross trudged off the field in tears, the last thing the lad needed was to be hounded by a sense of indignation from Arsene Wenger and a loud collage of journalists and Arsenal fans alike. So, imagine the disgust when the pitch forks and stakes came out... The challenge itself...

    Liverpool Get Their Soul Back

    Never mind about the title, relish the fact that Liverpool have got their soul back. Competitions can come and go, but the spiritual identity of a football club is a rather more permanent prize. On Tuesday night at Anfield, Liverpool probably lost their grip on the title race, dropping two...

    Keegan Factor

    I’m writing this match preview moments after watching Kevin Keegan’s first press conference as Newcastle United manager since 1997. When he walked into the room, I’ll be honest with you, I felt a little bit tired and maybe a bit stressed about the deadline that was closing in on me. But after...

    Online Chess

    I hope this is not too trainspotterish, but has anyone got any good suggestions of any websites that offer online chess? These days Chess is played by gorgeous looking Russian females who could resemble a bad girl in a James Bond film. It's a game of skill and intelligence! Maybe if...

    Chuck Norris

    Chuck Norris used live ammunition during all shoot-outs. When the director said he can't, he replied, "Of course I can, I'm Chuck Norris" and roundhouse kicked him in the face. If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death...

    Premier League Rants!

    NEWCASTLE and BOBBY ROBSON Robson has lost it. As much as I like Robbo, I do think at 70-odd you shouldnt be a manager as you cannot get intimate respect from your players. What I mean is you cannot have the close contact of training every day - I doubt he even takes the training sessions on a...
