    Charlotte the Japanese Monkey

    Is it really disrespectful to call a monkey Charlotte? It was supposed to be a nice gesture but many English people have complained about it. Has the world gone crazy? Do you really care? Would William or Kate be insulted? Long live Charlotte the monkey! (and the princess)...

    Malt whisky/whiskey

    Can anyone suggest a decent one without getting out a bank loan and bare in mind I'm a beginner ! Looking at Bowmans and Monkey Shoulder but others assure me that I can't go too wrong sticking to Glenfiddich. Also, has anyone tried the Japanese market as I've heard mixed reviews?

    Honoring players through Haiku

    No doubt this has been done to death before, but I thought it was about time that we banded together to honor our players (past and present) through the traditional medium of the Japanese Haiku. What could be more appropriate than a rigidly structured word image all the way from feudal Japan...

    Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

    The Lady Australian Prime Minister decided to open up a hornets nest.I actually think she makes some fair points. "It took a lot of courage for this woman to speak what she had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least she was willing to take a stand...

    Match Of The Day titles!

    You know where it gives the abbreviation of the score, well, make it up (OK use a 4 for an A etc) but then give the explaination of the resulting word. e.g. Honduras 0 Chile 1 would be HON01CHI Honoichi is a Japanese soup with shrimps and noodles.

    Don't Make A Whipping Boy Of Green

    Even as I type these words, I can hear the scraping of a thousand knives being hastily sharpened in the offices of England’s national newspapers. By the time I’ve hit ‘send’ on my email, be assured that this country’s sports editors will have plunged them all into Rob Green’s back. Football can...

    First post....for a year!

    Just checked out my stats and realised that I haven't made a post for a whole year! I guess this partly comes from the fact that I live in Japan and haven't seen Southend play for what seems like forever. Think I last watched a game over Christmas/New Year 2006/7. Can't have been very good as I...

    At the start of the A-League season I posted a blog about my experiences as a newly emigrated ‘Pom’ supporting the Queensland Roar.

    Arsenal Lose, Four-All

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor, apparently caught between contempt and fury. A 4-4 draw at home to Tottenham, under any circumstances, is a poor result, but to be asked where he thought he, "lost the game," seemed to be pushing it a little. "We did not lose," he said slowly. "I must...
