Hooray! Football is now completely humourless! Ginger Reading striker Dave Kitson all but accuses own fans - own fans! - of prejudice. Although obviously it's OK to similarly lampoon team-mates

"A Rangers fan has admitted carrying out a foul-mouthed road rage attack on Celtic star Neil Lennon... He claimed that when he saw Lennon, he had wanted to talk about a recent Celtic and Hearts Scottish Cup tie, where the midfielder had been the victim of some rough tackles." Righto.
Remember the more than borderline offensive coverage of Juninho's move to Middlesbrough? BBCi do
Is Sepp Blatter paid by the stupid, unworkable idea? We particularly admire his timing, choosing the early stages of the first MLS season in which games are allowed to end in ties

If you support a club who aren't massive, this might just make your head spin - the High Court pick through the whole sorry Mark Goldberg at Palace mess
Has read most of it, worryingly: Darren Gee
Parkinson leaves the BBC over the Premiership football rights because obviously BBC1 has never needed to stoop so low as to show football on a Saturday night before

Pick the greatest European footballer ever for 5 Live Good as he was, just how many votes will Zbigniew Boniek get?

There are many websites containing disturbing material on the Net. This is one such site - who knew that purple lipped Alan Smith was fancied by so many girls who can only communicate in txt msg language?
Nigerian league game result changed in referee's report, perhaps giving Rob Styles an idea
Romanian club told 'win or classical recital' - Tony Adams would wonder why this is considered a punishment

Copyright! Fact that competition called Think Clear has been launched by Ron Atkinson shall pass uncommented upon

Portuguese police arrest everyone in league positions of power they can think of - great thought that referees are responsible for match-fixing, but forgery? Get Mickey Thomas there now!
You're probably au fait with the details of the Perugia chairman withdrawing his team from Serie A story, but just look at that detail - the supposed quote from Gaucci's children, the idea that they've been robbed in 28 of their 30 games, because of course without this they'd be championship favourites rather than seven points adrift of safety, the detail that taking them out of Serie A means Roma overtake Inter for fourth place without lifting a finger, the fact that his own coach and players publicly disagree with the claim...
Congratulations to Burnley, who've just taken on trial from Tooting & Mitcham the best named footballer ever

Let's offset what everybody in the world is hitting this blog through Google for : Tim Lovejoy is Man At C&A (Burtons, actually, but it worked, so hey) Don't try and read sociology into the show, man!

Snubbage ahoy for the Intertoto - course, when everyone deemed it the stupidest competition ever and the entrants put out sides comprising loaned in youngsters and Kevin Pressman in its first year, Bordeaux won and went on to the UEFA Cup final. But hey, 'Inter Two Bob' was such funny word play, wasn't it, eh?

...and the Wimbledon fans came out in their numbers to see their last rites for the season read. (nicked off Red & White Barmy)
Great Mistakes Of Our Time No.43546 - keeping a topical reference to A Well-Known Female Football Presenter and A Well Known Magazine For Men up on the site for a few hours. Just look at those referrers! Top of Google searches, too. If you've come this way via Google, THEY'RE NOT HERE! Try these people!
Jim Davidson more popular than The Premiership, although Guy Mowbray is actually more offensive

Hands up who thought Edu could seriously get away with this? Still, we'd like to have seen the look on Jeff Powell's face the first time he came out in England colours

Diplomacy, David Pleat style. Never mind PC, he deserves shunning just for the Bogarde 'joke'

Clive Allen out of work come the summer We particularly admire the Evening Standard reporting here, which even leaving aside the claims that the show is an 'institution' points out it leaves Gabby "without a regular weekly Premiership show to present." Much like, say Gary Lineker. Oh, she's female?
Oh, you should be used to these long silences by now.
So, what a difference a qualifying campaign makes. In the 2002 World Cup the Maldives were hammered by China, who in the finals did rather less well than the South Koreans. In qualifying for 2006, things went slightly differently. Where's your Ahn Jung-Hwan now, eh?
