One of the truly great pleasures in life is bringing your son or daughter into the world. Teaching them how to do the practical things like walk, talk and shoot. Continue reading

Thank You Juan

So it’s the end of the world as we know it, if you believe many of the player fan pages on twitter. Chelsea have sold a player the fans love and to a rival no less, one that wouldn’t sell they’re top player to us, what must Jose be thinking! How can we go on?


Not the first or last time
First of all, it’s not the end of the world. This isn’t the first time and won’t be the last time we sell a player that the fans want to keep.

Swearing at Football

Today’s game is about corporate meetings, business men wining and dining potential clients and families that have taken in a game for a change from the theatre or Joanna concert. People need to behave as such and this includes attire, language, pronunciation, persistent standing and aggressive, rude sing songs that apparently are designed to encourage their team.


This is why it’s completely unacceptable for players and staff to swear during a game.

2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Super Frank Lampard

By @marcdray & @Dazcfc1990

Frank’s signing was met with mixed reviews back in 2001. Some said that we had paid over the odds for an average midfielder. £11m was a lot of money 12 years ago, and with Chelsea in such a poor financial state, it’s fair to say the purchase was a risk. Chelsea, however, could consider themselves lucky as Aston Villa had been highly interested in the player. West Ham even rejected a bid of £15m for Lamps and Kanoute from them.

Have YOU seen a better XI live?

So after my verbose effort on United (apologies, but I have time on my hands and I do have the ability to talk/write a glass eye to sleep!), Mr Gormley has asked me to construct an International XI with these qualification parameters:

1: I must have seen them live
2: Only one representative per country

Supporting United

I’ve been asked by the esteemed Mr Gormley to contribute towards this debate by naming my top United XI since I’ve been following them and a top Fergie XI. Easy you may think, but incredibly subjective and much harder than I thought.
