The Guardian Will Guide You

As you may have noticed I don’t have any adverts on here. I will add a link to a site on the Links page but apart from that no ads. I have a: “If they come knocking at your door trying to sell you something you don’t want it” policy. Another reason being is that every other site you visit is full of them and I wanted this place to be, as much as possible, commercial free. (Of course this will change if F&M ever becomes too popular for me to support it financially, I’ll then shill for anybody who…

In Memory Of The 96

(or.. “er Felsen !”… if Google Translate did it’s job.) Posted one last week because I expect the subject to be in the headlines very soon and this fortuitously timed entry is about another back page attention getter who’s transfer speculations has been going on as long as Arshavin’s. Note for future self – This one is posted on transfer deadline day and one of both of these may or may not have moved before the window closed. So today’s attempt to attract some google searches is with the very handsome Roque Santa Cruz. Oh if only the transfer deadline…

[Video] Sir Bobby Is On Borrowed Time

I was saddened to read the following article via Soccernet this morning. Sir Bobby is a battler and I thought he would have won this one too. Sir Bobby admits defeat in battle against cancer Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson has admitted he will lose his battle with lung cancer ‘sooner rather than later’. Robson has been battling a fifth bout of the illness and has accepted doctors’ prognosis that he is unlikely to beat it. Speaking to The Sun, he said: ‘I have accepted what they have told me and I am determined to make the most of…

Here We Go…

…then. » An update on one I posted the other day: Mario Alaimo created some music in which he used a bit of Mozart mixed in some footie commentary and audio of the draw for the finals taking place. He submitted this to UEFA for them to use as a theme somewhere but they passed on it, so we adopted it as the official theme for our Euro 2008 coverage. There’s now a video to accompany the song which you can view below: Scissor Productions “Mozart Loves Football” The Unofficial Song Euro 2008 You can find more about Mario and…
