    Question Your favourite of the so called "Big four"

    Watching the premiership on the opening day of the season made me realise how much I cant stand football at the top level. So many plastic fans and the whole beauty of football seems lost to me.

    Test Match Special statistician and scorer Bill Frindall has died at the age of 69 after suffering from Legionnaire's disease. This is very sad news and I'll miss hearing him giving out some of the most bizarre statistics and facts about the game. R.I.P.

    My neighbours will never speak to me again. When I awoke on Wednesday morning to find my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth and an empty bottle of white wine in my bed, I was dimly aware that something incredible might have happened.
