Well, that is the first objective achieved. I managed a title that didn’t include the word SCUM, for that is what those three bone-shattering thugs are. Sorry, correction coming in. They are all good honest English players who haven’t got a bad bone in their body. These soft foreigners don’t like it up ‘em, do […]

“So, ‘holic, I suppose you’ll be doing lots of stuff about catching the train from platform nine and three-quarters to the big quidditch match of the weekend.” “That’s Harry Potter, you pillock. Stoke are called the Potters because they are situated in the Potteries, where the decorative ceramics come from.” Some of my colleagues are […]

How Not To Do It!

Those who saw the truly wonderful short documentary, A Night At The Emirates, on here last week will know just what feelings a high quality piece of filming, by a true professional, with quality equipment, can generate. There is, however, the other side of the coin. If you are over fifty, have a belly full […]

A Night At The Emirates

Big thanks to oldgooner for sending me the link to a short film by Rohan Blair-Mangat that gives an atmospheric and thoroughly enjoyable impression of last Wednesday’s match with Liverpool. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Obviously big thanks too are due to Rohan for permission to share his documentary. So […]

Is He, Or Isn't He?

Wherever possible I try to avoid transfer speculation, but sometimes it is difficult to completely turn a blind eye. There are lots of reasons for breaking that self-imposed restriction today. The main one is that, having exhausted the supply of recognised strikers, the club now appears to have temporarily lost the services of the man […]

“Henry James Redknapp, you have pleaded guilty to the charges brought by this court, and it is now my duty to pass sentence. You are an habitual criminal, who accepts arrest as an occupational hazard, and presumably accepts punishment in the same casual manner. We therefore feel constrained to commit you to the maximum term […]
