  2. Ref Watch .... Oxford H Checkatrade

    Tomorrow's man in charge is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, ex Wing Commander Trevor Kettle who used to work for the RAF and Ministry of Defence. His Armed Forces days are behind him and he now works as the Sales Director for a firm of precision engineers in Melton Mowbray...

  11. Pointless rants

  15. Lessons in PR by Geoffrey "The Spin" King.

    Lesson Number One: Trying to sell a player? Make sure they know we think he's crap. That's right, you heard. There's no need to wax lyrical about what a hard worker he is, or how much he brings to the team morale. Some of us think he's crap and that's all they need to know. That way, you see...

    Guys and girls, I am considering a change in career and have been offered a position in which I would be entitled to a key worker subsidary.
