Bird commentates on footy

Its happened, this weekend a bird will commentate on a footy match for the first time in England. see link here.


Also scroll down to check out metrosexual Dave Bassett's view - hilarious.

Personally I dont care one way or the other, however if Julie Foudy shows up i turn my life to Hockey, seeing her on ESPN last year was just.. horrific.

Daft Republitard Bint

It's old, but worth a read...
Michael Jackson & Soccer Unite our Enemies Printer Friendly By Debbie Schlussel What do Michael Jackson and soccer have in common? That's easy. Smart Americans with taste dislike both. But our enemies just love Michael Jackson and soccer. It's part of a secret international IQ test. Post 9/11, if you love freedom and decency, you have no interest in either the silly game of low scoring and the bizarre has-been-pop-star-come-plastic-surgery-victim. If you hate America and love terror, soccer and Michael Jackson are the best things since sliced bread (if you're from those countries who hate us and haven't yet emerged into the advanced era of sliced bread, then they are the best things since whole pita with hummus). As USA Today reports, "'M.J.' Has Own U.N. in His Corner Outside Courthouse." Fans from Oslo (home of the failed give-in-to-terrorists Oslo Accords), Germany (home of the Hamburg cell and O.J-style juries that repeatedly fail to convict Al-Qaeda terrorists), and pot-smoking Amsterdam (where Muslim terrorists assassinate Van Gogh descendants), have all convened outside the Santa Barbara Courthouse to worship at the alter of the "King of Pop." Foreigners hold up signs with such reassuring messages as "Germany Fights With You!" (Germany fought with Der Fuhrer and the Third Reich, too) and "He's not Hitler." Hmmm . . . . That explains why every Muslim terrorist gets away with murder in Germany. They're not Hitler, either. I guess if you're not Hitler, anything else goes.

The best of whats left

Was yapping on the phone to Rich yesterday and he had a good question but is too lazy to post. Who is the best 11 in the Premiership outside of the top 4 clubs? Thats your afternoon's challenge...

Not getting into Emirates = Bummer

Just got back from a trip to the UK: saw my beloved Citeh send CC packing with a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage, then saw the "classic" 0-0 draw between Reading and Charlton at The Valley later that evening. Two EPL matches in one day, not too shabby. Sadly, didn't get into the Arsenal/WHU contest...

Bye Bye Chris Coleman

Glad to see that Al Fayed has taken action. Three points out of a possible 21 deserves relegation.
This team has been consistently inconsistent but generally crap over the last two months. Coleman possibly could have turned the ship around but why take the chance. When a club sacks a manager there is normally a short term bounce. If that bounce provides six points, then Fulham escape relegation most likely.
However, it's a tough run-in including Liverpool and Arsenal. First come Reading and Blackburn so let's hope the lads show some bottle and try to impress the new short-term gaffer. It may come down to the last match of the season against Middlesbrough.
