  1. Publish and be damned

    Something has been bothering me over the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that have caused to much grief of late...and why I believe in a free press and OBVIOUSLY condemn any hostile action in relation to them or any other piece of journalism/art, I have to say that some of the cartoons have gone beyond...

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2791667/Islam-cartoon-man-Kurt-Westergaard-attacked.html AN axe-wielding intruder was shot by cops last night after he tried to attack the Danish cartoonist who sparked riots by mocking the prophet Mohammed. The Somali man, 27, was injured at the...

    It's A Yeung Man's Game

    Carson Yeung's imminent takeover of Birmingham City is a watershed moment for English football. For the first time in history, half of the Premier League is in the hands of overseas investors. Ten clubs, ten multi-millionaire owners, but does Yeung really have a chance of success in the...

    Italy Stunned By Fiery Pharaohs

    Egypt 1-0 Italy Homos 40 It was the Brazilian legend Pele who once said that an African side would win the World Cup before the year 2000. Sadly, like most of Pele's predictions, it was about as accurate as a John Terry penalty. But if that vast continent can't yet produce a side capable of...

    Spain Pacify Iraqi Resistance

    Spain 1-0 Iraq Villa 55 The trouble with winning well is that it never goes unnoticed. For every barnstorming 5-0 victory, resplendent with glorious passing and breathtaking goals, there's always a coach out there somewhere who watches it and thinks, 'that's not going to happen to me.' More...

    Webb Rescues Brazil

    Brazil 4-3 Egypt Kaka 5, 90 Zidan 8, 58 Fabiano 12 Shawkey 57 Juan 37 Now this is much more like it. After an insipid first day offered up only an uncomfortable mismatch and a desperately dull bore-draw, day two of the Confederations Cup finally delivered some excitement. Brazil were stifled...
  10. FC - Match 9

    Away to the side in 2nd today, just need to pick up more points than them to secure the title. We're all at Sublime, so we're at full-strength. Poetry in Motion v BATTY SHRIMPERS We can tell you that BATTY SHRIMPERS won the toss and elected to bat. The pitch is looking a touch on the green...
  11. OD - Week 4

    Home to the side sitting 7th. We've got 4 at Energetic, but they're all playing on a TIE. Should be an easy victory. BATTY SHRIMPERS v Worchester_Sauce We can tell you that Worchester_Sauce won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking a little uneven. Should be tough for the...
  12. OD - Match 6

    Rodley CC v BATTY SHRIMPERS We can tell you that BATTY SHRIMPERS won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking a bit on the dry side. A fair bit of help for the spinners I think on this partially cloudy day. A few at Energetic, but should still be able to win on a TIE. New...
  13. BT - FC Week 6

    All about the cash this week, as I'm at home to one of the sides near the bottom. He only has 2 players over 10k BTR and one of those is at Fresh, so the reserves + Raz and Rupak get another run-out. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mrs BB at home to...

    I know there are some big fans on here (like me)... here is an update on his new terrorism-baiting project:
  15. Battrick - Penultimate OD match

    All the squad either at Energetic or Sublime, so we pick a full-strength side today. Playing a side who surprisingly beat me earlier on in the season, but I'm after revenge today. I'm TIE, and I want to bowl 1st to try and preserve as much PFL as poss before next week's FC game...
  16. BT - FC Match 13

    I'm in 5th playing the side in 7th, still looking to finish in the top 4, but it's going to be struggle, although the side in 4th plays the leaders this week, before we meet each other in a Xmas Day showdown. Oppo is struggling PFl wise, so hopefully we can wrap up a maximum points win. Evelyn...
  17. Battrick - OD Match 12

    2nd against 3rd today, to basically decide 2nd place. Struggling a little bit with PFL with Curle missing out, and Middleton playing at Invigorated. Playing a TIE, not quite sure what he'll do. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kev, you've had a result...

    Princess Diana Inquest

    I've been following this with interest and the whole inquest looks like it will run longer than The Mousetrap. My question is does anyone think that she & Dodi Fayed were topped by members of the Royal Family as Mohammed al Fayed alleges?

    Injury shock for Pakistan

    Both Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammed Asif who were due to take a further drugs test this week (the rest of the squad took theirs last week) have been ruled out of the world cup through injury. This is apparently completely unrelated to the fact that these two had previously failed drugs tests, but...
  20. SZ BT Cup - Preview

    With this seasons SZ BT Cup starting on Sunday, I thought I would try and give a bit of a run-down on the groups and teams. GROUP A Batty Shrimpers (managed by BB) Current form - top of V.58 winning all 4 games, knocked out of cup at 3rd round stage. One to watch - Philip Evelyn. 580 runs at...
