    Is the best the EU can do?

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/19/refugees-croatia-hungary-borders-europe Is this incompetence on the part of the EU?

    Tax self assessment.

    Is anyone else about to get F'd in the A by the government? I registered for self assessment a month ago and still haven't received my unique taxpayer reference (UTR) required to submit my assessment online. I just called the *******s and they have sent the UTR to my old address despite...
  3. Ref Watch ........ Fleetwood away

    In charge of tomorrow's first ever match with Fleetwood we have the dead hand of dead-eyed Darren Deadman, from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire. He is a civil servant, specifically a public transport officer for Peterborough City Council. In his eigth season as a League referee he has notched up...

    Chancellor admits economic incompetence

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20571621 It's official.By Wednesday(the half way point of the Coalition Government)we can expect confirmation that neither of the Chancellor's deficit or debt targets for the UK will be met by 2015.
  5. Ref Watch ..... Wycombe at home

    Today's referee is Stuart Attwell from Warwickshire, refereeing his 4th Southend match. A somewhat notorious official, Mr Attwell was promoted to the Select Group after just two unexceptional seasons as a League referee. It is fair to say that this fast-tracking favoritism caused more than a...
  6. Ref Watch ..... Aldershot

    The dead hand of dead-eyed Darren Deadman will be in charge of tonight's second attempt to get this match played. Deadman, from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire is a civil servant, specifically a public transport officer for Peterborough City Council. In his seventh season as a League referee he has...
  7. Ref Watch ..... Preston replay

    Returning to Roots Hall for the second time in under 5 weeks, tomorrow's referee is Darren Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt. His last and recent performance against Torquay was not his worst appearance here by a large margin; he showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of...
  8. Ref Watch ....... Torquay

    Cards will not be in short supply tomorrow if Darren Deadman's last appearance at Roots Hall is anything to go by. Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt, showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of incompetence the season before last at home to Franchise FC. As it happens, we probably...
  9. Ref Watch ...... Festive Cards

    Festive cards will not be in short supply if Boxing Day referee, Darren Deadman's last appearance at Roots Hall is anything to go by. Deadman, a civil servant from Cheshunt, showed 9 yellow cards in a staggering display of incompetence last season at home to Franchise FC. As it happens, we...
  10. What to do with my PS3

    Over the last three or four weeks my PS3's been slowly going a bit Bilel Mohsni... Turning itself off, taking a while to boot, starting fights with opposition strikers, erasing preset HDMI settings and the like. This culminated in yesterday's horror show of turning itself on while I was at work...
  11. another slice of incompetence

    by not filling his contractual obligations genius RM has lost the club loadsa money in lost ransfer fees - cos SUFC contracts are worthless cos one side has defaulted - i.e. Ron Martin - any player can go walkabout and the club gets zilch- i always laugh at people who think business people are...

    West Ham. Not Good.

    WEST HAM ARE DOOMED After the excitement and drama of the weekend, here was the comedown. Manchester City against Manchester United was a tense, gritty battle of attrition. Tottenham against Chelsea was an explosive clash, packed with action. This was like watching a game of chicken between a...

    The Price Is Wrong

    I think it’s time to have a look at that Fit and Proper Persons test. The existing document focuses heavily on issues of past fraudulent behaviour, but that’s not good enough. Given everything that has happened at Portsmouth and the horrors that David Sullivan and David Gold have inherited at...

    X-Files Special: The Teflon Ron

    Reading through many of the posts regarding our current financial woes, one thought has struck me over and over again: How the hell does Ron Martin do it? Mr Martin has been proven to be a liar. That’s a fact that cannot be disputed. I was thinking of prefacing that with an ‘IMHO’, but I...

    Black Cats Deserve Credit

    What's the saddest thing about 'Ballon-Gate'? Nope, it's not the nagging suspicion that only a handful of referees ever read their ruleback all the way to the end, nor is it the damage caused to Liverpool's title hopes by one of their own fans. It's the complete absence of credit given to...

    Lippi Should Have Stayed On The Beach

    Brazil 3-0 Italy Fabiano 37,43 Dossena 45 (og) There are certain times in life when it's actually ok to quit. Howard Wilkinson discovered this in 1992 after winning the title with Leeds United. In an uncharacteristically honest interview, the man who turned a struggling second flight side into...

    Toon Need Three Years

    Here on Tyneside, the hangovers are just beginning to clear. Sunday night may have been spent at the bar, defiantly pledging allegiance to the cause, but Monday morning saw the fuzzy-headed realisation that there will be no more trips to Liverpool or Arsenal for a while. Instead of Premier...

    Titus Astonished Us

    Every now and then, in a pressbox crammed with bitter, cynical old journalists, there is a frisson of excitement. Something wonderful ripples up and down the rows of greying, over-weight hacks, a buzz to make them believe in magic again. Usually its source is a young starlet like Jack Wilshere...

    Yes, it's that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least evolved among us. Here is the glorious winner: 1. When his 38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach , California , would-be robber James Elliot did...
