    Back in Canada Now...

    Hello all, Just wanted to let everyone know Canada Shrimper (John) and myself are safely back in Toronto now after quite a long flight over the Atlantic with Air Canada. I just wanted to say thanks to all the guys/girls I met this weekend. I had a fantastic time, I know John did and to be...

    Blues Questions and answers - Foran?

    I'm sure most of us get the ezine from the club called the Blues Insider. I was reading todays and saw the Q&A session with Scannell called "One on One". It's a regular feature where fans can ask players questions and they are answered in this column. Over lunch I just got to thinking what...

    Ashley Cole - Top Bloke or Tool

    Seems to be hot topic of discussion at the moment, booed by certain sections of the Wembley crowd at the weekend. Cant help thinking that Cole's recent actions have prompted it though I mean had Rio, Upson or any other of that team made the mistake they certainly wouldnt of got booed...

    Was chatting to a grays supporting pal over the weekend and was saying how that when kights first played for them things weren't quite happenen for him and he could never last longer than 60 mins in a game . a nutrishinist was drafted in and it came clear that Michael always skipped breakfast ...

    he seems to be doing quite well at charlton wouldnt it be great if they went down whilst we get promoted, that would be a good kick in the teeth for him

    Seen this before but still makes me chuckle. May have to try to use a few of these in every day life, especially No. 30. 1. She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs. 2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a tumble dryer 3...

    Fright Night For Scolari

    Hi all, apologies for the lack of these recently. Not been too well, so just been filing and then retiring back to my sick-sofa. Back now though with more ill thought-out, poorly constructed critiques of the rich and famous. And so without Freddy Adu.... If Manchester United's victory in...

    That Sodding Dancing Robot

    I wouldn't want anyone to think that I didn't like Transformers. I am of that age. An age where pocket-money was stockpiled and then squandered on curious plastic trinkets with names like Bumblebee, Starscream and Optimus Prime. Look, it's a plane! Look, it's...erm...a robot that...erm...sort of...

    Scolari Still Not Happy

    Under ordinary circumstances with an ordinary manager, a 4-0 victory in the Champions League might be considered worthy of celebration. However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that Luiz Felipe Scolari is very far from ordinary. "We did not play very well," he complained afterwards. "We made...
  10. Rich Football club buy outs

    Surely if you were serious about buying a football club as a hobby rather then to make money, wouldn't it more of an achievement to buy a smaller club, build a team up from scratch, possibly invest in a new stadium and completely transform a non-league club say forest green rovers into a...

    Letter To Ashley

    After trawling through Mike Ashley's emotional 1664 word press release, Slipperduke has a few questions for him.... "I paid £134 million out of my own pocket for the club. I then poured another £110 million into the club not to pay off the debt but just to reduce it. The club is still in...
  12. So Why the Worry?

    I often struggle to comprehend views of football fans in general. The problem is we are all better managers than any current manager in the world when we make comments with hindsight. I think if we as fans are willing to accept Bailey has gone because he wanted out then we have to accept that...

    West Sham

    Sometimes in life, when faced with inexplicable stupidity, there is a temptation to assume that perhaps it is you who is being stupid. When Steve McClaren decided to play long-ball to Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney in Russia last year, I briefly toyed with the theory that maybe, with his years of...

    Ron Martin - the statement

    Right, let's clear a few things up straight away - Contrary to popular belief, I haven't been avoiding the subject all day - quite the opposite, I’ve been itching to get on here and finally say my piece. Truth is, I too lost out on a lot of work this morning, and the meeting was over 2 1/2...

    Kicked To the Curb

    There's never a dull moment in the EPL. Just 24 hours after the farcical scenes at St James Park, Alan Curbishley nipped in ahead of Kevin Keegan to become the first manager of the season to leave his club, resigning after an unhappy spell at West Ham. The history books will hint at a short...
