|I've upset my vegetarian girlfriend|
at 09:26 4 Jun 2022
It was all going so well
She was grounded
While I filled the skies
She was dumbfounded by truth
I cut through lies
She saw the rain dirty valley
I saw Brigadoon
She saw the crescent
I ate the whole of the Quorn
The whole of the Quorn!
I ate the whole of the Quorn...

|I know Paul Cook is history but it seems that Leam Richardson still rates him|
at 15:06 2 May 2022
'But the successes they have had could so easily have been just a target of where they wanted to be, had he followed Cook to Ipswich.
Asked whether he had spoken to Cook, who has since returned to Chesterfield, during the Latics' battle for promotion back to the Championship, Richardson said: "Probably every single day. Every single morning. He's always offering words of advice and support.
"He was a colleague and a really close friend. If I tell you that he supports Wigan and wants them to do well, it'd probably be an understatement.
"If he didn't have a game today he'd be in the crowd. He'll be as proud as anyone today and he's been supportive as anybody throughout this time."'
|Warning - Look at me post - I am drinking cappuccino in Floriana|
at 11:16 30 Mar 2022
I know, most people drink it in a cup...
Anyway, I have just regaled the three people who own the café run by the hockey club with the story of our first European tie, apologised for putting ten goals past them, explained that they helped Alf Ramsey on his way to understanding international games and winning the World Cup.
Then I asked them where Floriana's ground was and they waved to the east and told me 'somewhere over ther, we are not really interested in sport'...
|To help Ukraine's children may I suggest a donation to SOS Children's Villages|
at 11:47 9 Mar 2022
Have just made a donation to my chosen charity:
I recommend them to the good folk of TWTD not only because they have had the support of the England football team but because I like their methodology. When, at the end of the Second World War, there were thousands of homeless orphans and also thousands of mothers who had lost children an Austrian had the idea of setting up homes where the grieving mothers could get some comfort by looking after motherless children. Seventy five years on they have 'villages' all over the World and I have been very impressed each time I visited a couple of them.
The only caveat is that when I started to support them fourteen years ago they were supported by Spurs as well as England - despite SOS having their United Kingdom office in Cambridge. Perhaps if enough Town fans make a donation there would be grounds for the appropriate switch to an East Anglian team as the league team that lends its name to what I consider to be a fine cause.
