The Fat Lady Sings

Well, thank God that’s over for a few months. Many more of those bombastic Sky adverts that are so loud that they’re threatening to cave my living room walls in, and I think I’d have gone mad. The biggest problem with the Premiership isn’t the hyperbole that surrounds it, or even the gulf in quality…

Town And Out (And Other Stories)

Well, what a busy day. In fact, it has been sufficiently exciting for me to have to put up one of those posts that is in the form of bullet points, so that I can say everything that I need to say. Best get started then, hadn’t we? Town And Out: I reported on the…

Survival Of The Fittest

Most of the leagues in this country have finished now (apart from that certain English league that needs that extra week so that its poor, overworked angels can get a week or two’s break during the winter), and we’re already into play-off territory. Some leagues have already finished theirs, so I thought that maybe it…

Ups & Downs

There’s only one way to feel about Manchester United’s Premiership victory, isn’t there? And that’s “meh”. One massive corporation has beaten another massive corporation. Well, hurrah. On Saturday afternoon, I watched the West Ham-Bolton match, and Bolton played as if they’d been drugged or something. Even at three up, though, West Ham didn’t look comfortable,…
