    US Open: Laura Robson

    I'm not a huge tennis fan but watched Laura Robson during the Olympics. She's over at the US Open now and saw that she beat Kim Clijsters the other day to set up a clash with 9th seed Li Na .. well she's just beaten her 6-4 6-7 6-2 to set up a last 16 clash with defending champion Sam Stoser...

    Monkey Tennis / Ghost Hunting with The Only Way is Essex

    Seeing the second of the two programmes in the title of the thread advertised on ITV2, I was reminded of a scene from Alan Partridge which (I've just found out spurred the phrase in the first part of the thread title). "In one scene the eponymous character of Partridge, a failed chat show...

    Just backed Leyton Hewitt whilst in play at 1/4 to beat Thiemo De Bakker. Putting down a ton, gave me an easy £25. Considering when I placed the bet, Hewitt was 5-3 up in the 1st, and it's a bet of 3 set match, that really was easy money. Since joining Bet365, I'm now £773.90 up. After making...

    Question Football related injuries?

    On Boxing Day over here I went to see Brisbane away at Gold Coast. In line with many away days watching Southend it was a cracking day out (however I've never drunk beer overlooking a beach like Surfers Paradise whilst watching the Mighty Shrimpers) spoiled only by the football (we got beat...

    Memory Lane Episode No 1 Season 1931-32

    As I have posted previously I have an article printed in every official programme this season telling the story of Season 1931-32 in 23 episides. It has been pointed out to me that not everybody attendes every match and not everyone buys a programme, so I thought I would post them here again if...
  16. Olympics new sports for Rio

    Golf & Rugby 7s. IMHO it's quite absurd that golf, along with tennis & football is now at the Olympics as I'd imagine it's low on the radar of Tiger Woods to win a gold medal when he can win a major.

    World Athletics Championships

    Hopefully Jessica Ennis is going to take Gold in the Heptahlon tonight. Usain Bolt is also through to the 100m final, I wonder if he can beat the world record. He ran 9.89 in the semi while slowing down, amazing.

    Striker Crisis For Capello

    England 4-0 Slovakia Heskey, 7 Rooney, 70, 90+2 Lampard, 82 Forget about the result. A 4-0 victory over a substandard Slovakia might look nice on the scoreboard, but it has no place in the bigger picture. Fabio Capello will be far more concerned by a dramatic injury crisis in his frontline...
