Themes Of The Unexpected

It’s probably fair to say that I have developed a bit of a “thing” for football on the television. I also think that it’s fair to say that quite a lot of you lot have as well. I put a load of links to the TV themes from football shows from over the years up...

Fiddling While Roman Burns

At the time of writing, Manchester United and Chelsea are huffing and puffing their way around the Old Trafford pitch. From what I’ve caught of it so far, United are completely over-running Chelsea at the moment and taking pot shots at a somewhat horrified-looking Petr Cech.

Your Friday Night Radio Compendium

I’m planning, for the first time (although some of you might not believe me) to write about something other than football on here this evening. High excitement, indeed.

La Marseillaise

If you happen to be a Liverpool supporter, then I’ve got good news for you. Olympique de Marseille, who are drawn against them in the group stages of this year’s European Cup, are lousy this year. Rotten. And if you want any further proof of this, consider that Toulouse, who Liverpool brushed aside in the...

Scotland The Brave

Ever since their stunning win at the 1998 World Cup and subsequent permanent placement at (or near) the head of the European football table, I have found something disquieting about the pre-eminence of the French national team. I should point out at this juncture that I am a Francophile of some note. I love the...
