    Argentina v Croatia at Upton Park - Wednesday 12th November

    Just seen that Argentina are playing Croatia at Upton Park this Wednesday. Don't really know why they have chosen to hold a game like this at Wet Spam but with tickets at £25, this is an opportunity to see Messi live and also Tevez, Mascarano, De Maria, Lamella, Modric too. Anybody going?

    Maria Miller

    How is is right that an MP steals money from her employer to the tune of 45k yet is then only asked to pay back 5k and say sorry. Surely any normal person who stole that amount would face jail for theft. This one rule for us in power and one for the plebs is disgusting.Cameron backing her...

    Wimbledon 2011

    Who is going to win this year? The Women's looks to be open with Clijsters withdrawing because of injury and both Williams sisters coming back after long spells out with injury. Be nice to see Maria Sharapova grunt her way to another title. I think the Men may be a bit easier to predict as...

    A joint bid was issued by Spain and Portugal in the race for 2018 World Cup host. Although Portugal had allegedly been more excited about the venture than Spain, Spanish FA President Angel Maria Villar Llona has since indicated that he supports a joint endeavour. The bid is also being backed by...

    Arsenal Still Not Very Good

    Arsenal are the architects of their own problems sometimes. Their failure to secure top spot in Group G can be attributed directly to their inability to beat a woeful Fenerbahce side at The Emirates earlier in the campaign. That traditional tale of misplaced opportunities and wasted dominance...

  9. 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...

    You know you live in Spain when ...

    1) You think adding lemonade, fanta or even coke to red wine is perfectly acceptable. Especially at lunch time. 2) You can't get over how early bars & clubs shut back home - surely they're shutting just as you should be going out? 3) You aren't just surprised that the plumber/decorator has...

    Good god what a slow morning, some of these made me laugh. "I've got all the passion, but no idea of tactics.

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...

  20. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
