    Clement Freud - another to add to the paedophile list?

    Stories this morning that Clement Freud abused two girls, one of whom lived with his family from the age of 14. His widow has "apologised", which suggests she accepts this as fact. Links also apparently being suggested to the McCanns as he owned a villa in the town where Madeleine went...

    Odd Random Things You Discover

    I was driving on the M11 and saw a Norbert Dentrassangle lorry so decided to attempt the "Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry, Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry" tongue-twister. As ever it proved beyond me. Then, for some reason unbenown to me, I attempted it in a Jamaican/Caribbean accent; and lo-and-behold it was...

    Plodding Snore-fest Is No Reason For Complacency

    Algeria 0-1 Slovenia ENGLAND SHOULDN’T TAKE THESE TWO TEAMS FOR GRANTED An awful game, bereft of class and style, but if England fans think that they can relax, they should think again. There was just enough in this strangely compelling display of mutual ineptitude to concern Fabio...

    Greek Tragedy For King Otto

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...

    Another deadline deal too late ?

    Or was it ? The Echo reports this morning that the Blues were awaiting official documentation to discover weather they had signed another forward on loan. On a sour note they also say that Granty will be out for 6 to 8 weeks.

    Wenger's Bar

    I'm afraid I won't be writing a column this week, or indeed ever again. Yep, I'm hanging up my presspass and shutting my laptop for the final time. I'm off to France, you see. Arsene Wenger's assertion that he learned everything he needed to know about football in a pub gave me food for thought...

    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...
