  1. Roma 'penalty'

    I didn't watch the match but Graham Poll is quoted in today's DM that Roma were denied a clear penalty when the Liverpool player handled in the box. I'm not querying whether it was a penalty - except to say I still think some referees haven't a clue about 'intent' - but he then goes on to say...

    Anyone else feel uneasy about this terrible event. The bomber decided to dress in stand out clothing a bright yellow top,but for me the camera operator was either eagle eyed or something slightly sinister. How on earth did the operator pick the bomber out from the crowd?He/she then captured...

    Joe Pigott

    Let's not dream anymore that he is going to return. Came on in the second-half as a Charlton X1 met the Clarets at Chelmsford. The visitors took the lead before that man Bricknell equalled things up just before the break. Pigott was involved in the action...... Charlton Athletic FC...

    Familiar feel

    Last night gave me a fimiliar feel to the last time we were promoted under Tilly. Great football 100% commitment and the stands all in unison. Play like last night in the playoffs and we will go up. The only other thought that springs to mind is that again we could have a huge points tally...

    "Sexism in football"

    Seems sexism is the new racism in football, are authorities really saying they would throw people out for what most know is just a bit of banter? I've walked round the pitch many times and have had the "get your tits out" thing chanted, it's part and parcel isn't it? And I'm pretty sure the...

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes. Whoever wrote this needs to get out more. "Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, has announced...

    The dramatic consequences of not having been able kill Oldham off on Saturday are now laid bare, for everyone to see. This has set me wondering just how many other times this teasing scenario of knowing we have a 'big club' draw, if only we can get through to the next round, has occured. From...
  12. Osborne + Coke + Hookers

    So Guido Fawkes and Australian News Channel ABC reckon that tonight it will drop that George Osborne did cocaine and slept with hookers when he was younger. Apparently this story has been around a while and he denied it, but it's even more interesting because it has an Andy Coulson/NOTW link to...

    Just how stupid can our Country get?

    "The immigration minister, Damian Green, has denied MPs' claims that a "silent amnesty" has been granted to more than 160,000 asylum seekers over the past five years by a UK Border Agency (UKBA) that is still "not fit for purpose". A report published by the Commons home affairs select committee...

    The Sin of Not Endorsing Homosexuality

    From the Biased BBC Blog: Fascinating interview @7.50am on Today concerning the Christian couple denied the right to foster any more children because they dare not endorse homosexuality values for 8 year olds. If you listen to the tone of the interview, there is clear BBC disbelief that ANY...
