    The Never Everton Story

    And so ends a miserable weekend for the more prosperous end of the Premier League. Wigan's narrow victory over a lacklustre Everton at the JJB Stadium meant that, along with every member of the big four failing to score, every team in the top ten failed to win. The victory drags Steve Bruce's...

    Today's scoop6

    This is not a post to promote gambling. Gamble responsibly. But If you do feel comfortable giving up a few pounds and don't want 40% of your pound to disappear from the prize pot, can I recommend the Scoop6 as it has rolled over twice and looks to be a record amount. What this means is that...

    Cup against Non League opposition (1922)

    here's another one of DoDtS's history lesson, here's how it was when we played non league oposition in 1922 WORKSOP TOWN 1-2 SOUTHEND UNITED F.A.Cup 1st Round 7th JANUARY 1922 Worksop were a non league side, but so were we two seasons previously so this meant little. Worksop, which is in...

    Leon Clarke

    Watched the Championship highlights programme on Sunday and noticed that Leon Clarke started his 1st league game of the season for Sheffield Wednesday v Birmingham on Saturday - mainly due to injuries to the SWFC squad. Leon looks just as fat as ever and apart from one chance when he rolled...

    Spurs Are Rubbish. Seriously.

    Martin Jol was sacked for less than this. With just one point from their opening four games, their worst start to a season since 1974, this new-look Tottenham Hotspur are rock bottom of the Premier League. Jol, meanwhile, is top of the German Bundesliga with his new club Hamburg. Ah, the irony...

    Benitez Must Improve

    It's two wins from two for Liverpool in the Premier League and European qualification has been secured, but has success ever been this abject? If the sign of a champion is the ability to win when you play badly, then Liverpool should have the title wrapped up by Christmas, because I don't think...

    Latest Rumours Pre Match Entertainment

    I’ve heard that Peterborough’s ‘firm’ is heading down for the weekends game. I wouldn’t worry about it though.. He's called Derek and he's not hard, just a bit fat with a gammy leg. In any case, I can conceal a whole bevy of assorted ‘tools’ in my hair in case things get a bit tasty.

    Tuesday Jokes

    A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, 'Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots, But they only know how to say one thing.' 'What do they say?' the priest inquired. They say, 'Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?' That's obscene!' the priest exclaimed...

    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

    Uefa Cup Semis

    So who will be making it to the final then? IMO would say Fiorentina will get a narrow win in Italy and knock out the Gers...the other semi will be a classic i reckon - would be amazing if Zenit knock out those ****y Munich buggers. Thoughts?

    OD week 12

    A toughie this week against a team claiming not to be camping but arguably just doing enough to retain top 4. Hoping he is resting a couple but inexperience is likely to go against me. I've beaten him before and he doesn't underestimate me. A win today would be massive, a narrow defeat for NRR...

    Arsenal v Reading

    Arsenal returned to winning ways at a freezing cold Emirates Stadium with a convincing 2-0 victory over a Reading side who are nose-diving at the worst possible time. Only a combination of fine goalkeeping, desperate clearances and Arsenal's own profligacy prevented this from becoming a...

    Liverpool Not Out Yet

    Liverpool fans must be feeling numb by now. There's only so much bad news you can take before you end up rocking backwards and forwards in the corner of the room, dribbling on your shoes and the weekend defeat to Barnsley was the final straw for most long-suffering Reds. Never has there been...
  16. Ref Watch - Orient

    Man in charge on Saturday is Army Captain Danny McDermid. Only in his second season and yet to referee either Shrimpers or Orient, he has crammed more controversy into his year and a half than most referees manage in a career. His highlight was being charged by the FA with foul and abusive...

    20mph zones!

    I live in Portsmouth and as some of you may be aware they are aiming to be the first city to implement new driving regulations which would mean a reduction of speed from 30mph to 20mph around residential areas. I live in Southsea and this would be one of the affected areas and I can understand...
