Web Round-Up

I’m somewhat glad that we’re through with the European Championships for a while. It’s too much football and not enough football at the same time. If you missed all of it this week, you’ll be able to catch it all on Saturday, on “Football Focus”. The next couple of days will give us all a…

No Surprises There, Then

I didn’t see it, myself. I managed to find a nice little table in a pub in the town centre that wasn’t showing it, and it was like the whole thing never even happened – at least until I got home. Bearing this in mind, let me just take a quick moment to review England’s…
