    Question Should everyone in the Halifax advert be shot?

    I think so, or failing that have Johnny Vaughan thrown at them from a great height. Ads these days wind me up so much I normally refuse to buy anything that's advertised in an "oh so clever way" on tv. Just show me the deal and I'll make my mind up. But yeah, apparently one of the ***** in...

    BluesPlayer Interviews

    There's an interview with Harry Crawford on the OS.Like the previous 3 interviews with the Chairman the sound quality is exceptionally poor. As someone who does a lot of DVD recording(group/individual student presentations)I'd advise Scrivs. to get a camera with an external microphone.Failing...

    Hi. Just to introduce myself, as the name probabaly suggests, I'm a Stockport Fan. (In peace). I've actually come on here just to spread a bit of information about financial issues, but before I start, I'll just say a bit of a piece. 14 months ago, other Stockport supporters, myself and...

    In Ireland, a Picture of the High Cost of Austerity

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/business/global/29austerity.html Ireland has slashed its budget, abandoned infrastructure and raised taxes to pay off with the deficit - with the result not only of deeper recession but an actual increase in borrowing. We're hearing a lot about the fate of...
  6. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part Two

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

    Question Football Manager on the iPhone - who's got it and doing ok as Southend Manager?

    I'm about 10 games in and just about hanging onto my job after selling JFC for £120K and failing to attract any loanees or strikers whatsoever to our struggling side. How are you faring?
  8. Thrills, Spills and Unpaid Bills - The League One Review Part One

    So, another season bites the dust and it’s all over bar the fighting at the Wembley mud bath. As ever, ten months of football has served up more twists, turns and travesties than a Mail on Sunday honey trap and hopefully this should spread some light on the season just gone. Norwich Starting...

  10. Another Mitchell Murdered in the East End

    The spate of murdered Mitchells in the East End of London was added to once more, as Kevin Mitchell was blown away by a rampant Michael Katsidis at an Upton Park which is growing accustomed to home losses. Much was made of Mitchell’s recent form and his credentials as another English...

    Nigeria

    Nigeria Manager: Lars Lagerback Captain: Nwankwo Kanu FIFA Ranking: 20 Group B Background: 2010 will be Nigeria's fourth World Cup since making their debut in 1994.

  12. Coleman Cast Into the Championship Graveyard.

    Another season in the Premier League graveyard grinds to a halt and Chris Coleman departs Coventry, charged with the heinous crime of failing to take them aboard the Barclays gravy train. Who’d be a manager in the Championship, eh? Such is the stature of the second tier of English football in...

    Fourth? Pah!

    Has there ever been a tag-line as profoundly underwhelming as the ‘Battle For Fourth’? Even for the English, who celebrate mediocrity with such enthusiasm that Tim Lovejoy has been encouraged to forge a career in broadcasting, this is a new low. Fourth? It’s not even a place on the podium. It’s...

    Backlash against the Bankers

    I know we may have one or two on here, but just wondered what, if any campaigns people have signed up to... Firstly we have Billy Bragg's NoBonus4RBS - "If you pay tax in the UK, you are a major shareholder in several banks - Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds and Northern Rock - who were...

    Stick With Rafa

    (For a different paper this time, hence the shorter word count) Is the FA Cup important again? It's the only explanation for the sudden turnaround at Anfield. Like a battered wife, the Liverpool fans have taken one beating too many and they're rising up, teeth bared, against Rafa Benitez...
  19. Costly Clauses Mount Up For Pompey

    It must be difficult supporting Portsmouth. It wasn’t so long ago you were walking Wembley Way triumphantly. Of course, it wasn’t so long ago that Portsmouth main goal was surviving in the Premier League… Now, you’re flinging England’s number 1 around like a QPR caretaker manager because...
  20. We're A Bigger Club Than Wigan...

    ... Sort of. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/fa_cup/8434060.stm They only managed a paltry attendance of 5,355 for their FA Cup tie against Hull. Another case of football clubs completely failing to identify with their demographic and show a complete lack of business sense... Surely...
