Tracing footballs tribal roots: is a good article, which might be of interest to aficionados of the beautiful game. Should there be a daily world cup huddle where stuff like this can get posted?
The comedy club of Newcastle Utd F.C: Continues to have us all rolling in the aisles. When he was at Wimbledon, Joe Kinnear, Newcastles caretaker manager used to come across as quite avuncular and jovial, as soon as he turned up at Newcastle though, he looked old, sad, lost and bewildered. Time (a full week) in the job seems to have taken its toll, if this transcript of a press conference is anything to go by. You need to read right until the end for the full belly laugh.
Feck off to Vile Park: is a favourite response to opinions that may be unkind to my chosen team on the various message boards that I frequent. It's the same on every other board, apparently. This is a great article which one or two on here might relate to.
Belated birthday wishes: to football! Sheffield FC, the oldest club in the world celebrated its 150th birthday yesterday. Meanwhile, the muscular Christians responsible for starting many of our clubs also deserve a bit of recognition. Who would have thunk it, from a sport which was popularised as result of attempts to keep scraggy arsed working class males from marmalising one another in pubs ............................to David Beckham.
More fantasy soccer: I appreciate that we already have a perfectly good league and don't need another. However. The Sunday Times reckons its new game is more cerebral than the others, requiring more thought and analysis. The scoring system is more complex and transfers have to be negotiated with other managers. It could be good, it could be crap, who knows. Anyway, I have taken the liberty of setting up a spofi league with room for 15 teams. Feel free to join. The league name is Spofi and the password is Lebowski
