End Of Week Round Up Re-Visited

I’ve been exceptionally pressed for time over the last few days or so, so I thought that now would be as good a time as any to bring you all up to date with a few stories that featured on here over the last few weeks or so. – I mentioned briefly on here the…

Bosphoric Acid

Well, here’s a cautionary tale, should Umbro ever take it upon themselves to follow through the increasing amounts of red on England shirts to its logical conclusion. A Turkish lawyer is planning on suing Internazionale for wearing a shirt with a red cross on the front of it. It seems pretty straightforward to me that…
