    Harry On Up The Table

    What a turnaround! Tottenham Hotspur, who accumulated just two points in over two months with Juande Ramos, have now racked up seven in the last seven days and you can put them all down to the Harry Redknapp factor. The former Portsmouth boss has put a spring in Spurs' step and after two...

    Fear The Andorrans!

    The time for talking is over. Platitudes have no place on the pitch, especially when the going gets as tough as it will on Saturday night. Fabio Capello's England will be right up against it when they travel to Spain to face the butchers, bakers and candlestick-makers of Andorra's national...

    Ljungberg agrees to leave Hammers

    "West Ham have released midfielder Freddie Ljungberg after an agreement was reached to terminate his contract." Source: bbc.co.uk I have to say I am a little bit suprised at this - what a coup it would be if T&B could convince him to revitalise his career down at Roots Hall!! **ah well we all...

    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...

    Hull City

    Hull City, a gritty northern side who were in the bottom division of English football just four years ago, are now 90 minutes away from the bright lights of the Premier League. Manager Phil Brown only took over in January 2007 when the Humberside team were paddling in the relegation zone, but...

    Apprentice week 8

    Not as good an episode as last week's, but still quite fun to watch. With Lucinda as PM for Alpha and Helene for Renaissance, the two teams had to select two items to showcase at the National Wedding Fair, with the one gaining the most orders being the winner. Helene and Sara were moved to...

    Reserve League Play-Off Final

    Liverpool's senior side may not picked up any silverware this year, but on Wednesday night at Anfield, Gary Ablett's reserve team were on hand to show them how it's done. Having won their regional divisional with room to spare, the youngsters were sent out to face Aston Villa's second string for...
  8. Wesley Snipes to serve 3 years in prison for tax convictions

    Wesley Snipes called on famous friends to vouch for him, highlighted his clean criminal record and even wrote the government $5 million in checks — all in an effort to convince a judge that his conviction on tax charges should cost him nothing more than home detention and some public service...

    Britain's Next Top Model

    I made the mistake of allowing Mrs Slipperduke to use the TV controller last night and paid for my lapse by being exposed to this horrible, nasty programme. Did anyone see it? It appears to be some kind of talent show, though it's anyone's guess what the 'talent' is. You knew there was a...
  10. Decision Deadline On Leeds' Appeal

  11. Should the Shrimperzone ladies apply to be on Telly?

    So, instead of diverting a thread...should we convince the Shrimperzone ladies to appear as the "fans on the bench" on Soccer AM? Imagine the glamour, the beauty, the legendary status we'd achieve on the programme that's not as good as it used to be due to Tim Lovejoy not doing it anymore...

    Klass-Jan Huntelaar

    While England’s footballers sulk in their sun-loungers, the rest of the continent will be contesting the 2008 European Championships. Iain Macintosh, who still won’t allow the word ‘McClaren’ to be uttered in his home, runs the rule over some of the potential stars of the summer. This week, it’s...

    Slipperduke's Mission To Millwall

    With a few edits, this is what the good people of Singapore will be waking up to tomorrow. MtS had a very lucky escape in being cut out of the final edit. 500,000 people could have found out exactly what his idea of a pre-match meal is... As a mere, and very occasional, foot soldier of the...

    Sleeping Through The Dawn of Capello

    There’s something very special about setting your alarm to go off a couple of hours early and slipping out of bed to watch the sun come up. It’s uplifting to watch a new dawn break, with a mug of coffee in your hand. To think about the possibilities and the opportunities, to convince yourself...

    Dr Ramos' Football Surgery

    For Tottenham Hotspur, the last four months have been like one of those celebrity makeover programmes on the television. Tottenham trudged into Dr Ramos’ Football Surgery back in October looking overweight, haggard and drawn. Now, after weeks of detailed appraisal and then a flurry of cutting...

    Swing The Axe, Fabio!

    With a rare swathe of midweek Premier League fixtures, the next few days represent the last chance for English footballers to worm their way into Fabio Capello’s affections. The Italian manager names his first England squad on Saturday after spending a month travelling up and down the country in...

    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...

    Capello - Will He Be Allowed To Win?

    Judging by the amount of hastily cobbled together puns on Fabio Capello's name in this morning's British tabloids, it now seems certain that the former Real Madrid boss will be named as the new England manager by the time you read this. Either that, or the Football Association's press officer...
