Emirati sheikh buys half of Beitar Jerusalem
at 15:19 8 Dec 2020

I don't usually condone the super-rich buying overseas clubs, but this is an excellent bit of trolling by the sheikh.

A previous owner said he was going to buy an Arab player (an Israeli international) but abandoned it after fans rioted. I went to one of their games when they were playing in the city I was living in and their fans were making monkey chants at the Nigerians in the home team.
Grenfell inquiry latest
at 23:50 16 Nov 2020

Some pretty shocking testimony today in the inquiry: "Celotex manager told to 'lie for commercial gain' over safety test of insulation sold for use on Grenfell"

Can't see this ending well for the firm.

Came across this on Twitter today; it's quite something.

If Town players did this, I'd definitely buy one. Perhaps an opportunity to include the players left out of the team photo too.
WSC predictions
at 12:53 4 Sep 2020

Just got the latest copy of WSC and a little surprised to see we are fourth in the predicted league positions, which seems rather generous.

Are other fans not as clued up on how bad things seem to be at the club, or are we just overly pessimistic?

Portsmouth, Sunderland and Peterborough are 1, 2 and 3.

Yet another thoroughly depressing sign of where this country is:

One of the many aspects of Eric Pickles' terrible legacy.
Neil Alexander still going strong at 40
at 00:06 12 May 2018

I see his Livingston team have reached the final of the promotion/relegation play-offs, so he could potentially be playing in the Scottish Premiership next season. Played in all but two of Livi's league games this season.
Democracy in action
at 23:28 9 May 2018

Just seen the news that opposition has won the general elections in Malaysia for the first time since independence. Not a country I'd have expected to see that happen in anytime soon. The BBC had an article a few days ago about how people weren't even bothering to register to vote as they assumed it wouldn't make a difference.

And this comes shortly after the Armenians ousting their long-time leader (I have a few Armenian friends from uni and they are very chuffed).

Wonder whether we'll get any other surprises this year – Zimbabwe???
Most Australian thing I've seen in some time

Kind of summed up by the line "a substantial amount of alcohol was involved."

Another housing scandal
at 20:30 30 Jan 2018

Saw the news in Metro today about the MoD housing sell-off and it's infuriating. Can't find the online version, but the Independent have the same story:

Is there even a pretence any more that this sort of thing was about getting value for money? It seems to be increasingly the case that the public sector is a cashcow for private interests.

The most frustrating thing is that once stuff is sold off, it's often almost impossible to get back except at great cost. An ideologically dogmatic government can sell off shedloads of public assets in a short space of time (usually just to cover revenue shortfalls) and we end up paying the price for decades...
Lincoln win the Conference
at 14:53 22 Apr 2017

Very pleased for them and the Cowley brothers.

Over 10,000 at Sincil Bank for today's game, their highest crowd since 1999.
at 23:16 27 Mar 2017

Not a suggestion for the new manager, but I was wondering why he left Town as a player in 1985. Going to Sunderland wasn't exactly a step up and he wasn't at the end of his career aged 29.

Same question for Eric Gates.

Would we have stayed up in 85/86 if they'd both stayed?
