Kinda sad Yet, at the same time, hilarious. At what point does it become even mildly amusing? Let alone, hilarious? :conf: At no point at all... just totally, totally sad to see serious talent wasted...

You need a culture of the good getting through for the excellent to emerge. And for the good to get through you need a culture of developing the promising. There is a real difficulty in England-qualified players getting through. There is a higher proportion of home-grown players in the italian and s...

There are no serious British contenders for the next manager, and that is a really serious comment on the domestic game. There are only about 50 England-qualified players playing in the Prem most weekends - and none of any note playing abroad. That is an even more serious comment on the domestic gam...

You look at the options after a couple of injuries and just despair at the wasted summer when Lee thought it ok to ignore defensive frailties in favour of speedy midfielders he'd spotted on you tube, who show no sign of hacking it in a team near you any time soon... But, you know, even though I fear...

Lloyd George knows my father

Why support Bolton Wanderers? Didn't have any choice. No say in the matter. That's just how it is. Get used to it, and enjoy it. If you're Jewish you get circumcised, if you're in my family you support the Trotters. We have a season ticket from 1926 in my family - it belonged to my father's great au...
