    AIG ends Man Utd sponsorship deal

    The troubled US insurer AIG will not be renewing its shirt sponsorship deal with Manchester United that expires in May 2010. AIG agreed to pay £14m-a-year for four years for the shirt sponsorship and also has a longer £5m-a-year deal to run MU Finance. It is currently restructuring itself...
  4. Australian Open - Murray's first Slam?

    Andy Murray begins his Australian Open campaign in a few minutes against Andrei Pavel. I personally think that Murray has an excellent chance of winning a Slam this year, and if it were to happen it would either be in the Australian Open or the US Open. He might be Scottish, and a bit...

    Dubai and Qatar tennis events

    Does anyone want to know how the early season events have gone? I seem to have found myself watching almost every game! Good game going on now if you can get yourself either a TV with Eurosport or are allowed to access Betfair.com (streamed on there). Murray has come back from a set down...

    A good clean Thursday afternoon joke.

    I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart. FOR EXAMPLE: One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were...

    US Sports - The Bill Simmons manifesto

    ESPN's Bill Simmons outlines what he'd do if he was made Obama's "Sports Tsar". Some crackers in here... Creations: A college football playoff system; a uniform boxing organization; a better trophy for the World Series; championship belts for the defending NBA champs that they must bring to...

  10. Breaking News Barrett's Banter

    Barrett's Banter: Bring on the cup IT’S the return of the FA Cup for us this weekend and I personally cannot wait to play. I’m an old traditionalist where this competition is concerned and I really do think it’s still something special. When I was a kid we all grew up dreaming of playing in...

    Goal line Technology??

    In the light of the the Watford v Reading game at the weekend are you for or against goal line Technology?? Surely anything that will lead to fair decisions, help the decision-makers, and stop doubts and controversy has to be a good thing? It works in other sports. Ok, that's not what football...

    Design A Pub

    OK, so, money's no object, and land and space are complete non-issues. What's the best possible pub you could ever come up with? Mine? Fossett's Bar will be located just down the road from Fossett's Farm, Southend on Sea, Essex. The bar will be tended by the guy who bartends at The Spread...

    Wii Fit

    I hate video games with a passion. I just don't see the point in them. The worst one for me is the Wii Fit. I mean, if you want to go to the gym, or you want to play golf/tennis etc, the bloody well get out of the house and do it properly. However, my wife wants one! And I think I am going to...
  15. Andy Murray...

    As much as I dislike his personality, he has done incredibly well to beat Novak Djokovic in the Masters Series Final at Cincinnati. A cracking game of tennis which Murray was successful 7-6 7-6. Well done to the lad!

    The Olympics

    I would have put this on The Slippery Column, but I thought that maybe it would have a wider interest. I think I'm going to get a lot of hate mail for this one.... It has swallowed up half of Rafa Benitez's midfield, savaged Mark Hughes' plans for a successful start, forced AC Milan fans to...
  17. Our very own Ladies Semi Final at Wimbledon no.2

    It has been a very difficult time searching through pictures of female tennis players. I have selected four professional female tennis players to see who we would have in our very own final and then who would win out Wimbledon. So the question is - who do you think is fittest (overall - looks...

    I'm going to have another rant about a different sport, this time....

    Women's tennis, or as some of the men on this board calls it "Monkey Tennis". Sharapova is now on the box, and what does **** me off about watching women's tennis is the screaming that they make when they hit the ball. It never used to be like this. It's like they are being attacked by...

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows.

    There are no flags on cars and no posters in windows. No sweeping advertising campaigns and no collectable badges. Here in the UK, you wouldn't guess that we're just hours away from the start of a major football tournament. Ok, so the nearest that the England team can get to European involvement...
