Portsmouth Football Club
The saga continues. Now Balu Chainrai is withdrawing his bid to buy the club. It is a terrible shame for the fans but really are they watching their once Premier League side slump to a 3-0 defeat against Plymouth with players who aren’t even signed and three subs? Probably not. Surely it is time to pull the plug on this terribly managed football club and let the fans set up something akin to Wimbledon?
It would only be England who would drop their best batsman before they play a crucial test against South Africa to retain their No 1 test side status. Yet again in English sport politics overtakes the desire for success. The whole debacle is playground stuff – text messages, parody twitter accounts etc… The management team need to start managing and bang the whole team’s heads together. It is right that there is no ‘I’ in TEAM but also there is no place for the stupidity of late that we have seen from some of the senior players.
I have been looking for some time now to see what it the Royal Mail’s reasoning behind these golden postboxes but I am unable to find anything online. I just don’t see the point. All I can see is that the Royal Mail have given the idiots an excuse to vandalise postboxes around the country. I’ve seen some golden ones written on, red ones painted gold, red ones wrapped in tin foil and even some athletes given two golden postboxes. I think they should all be painted red again. The country is going mad.

George Michael has given a foul-mouthed reaction to claims that he used the Olympic closing ceremony to promote his new single. Come on George, it was obvious to everyone what you were doing, and it’s totally shameful!!
Train prices are going up again. In my 2.8 litre car there isn’t many journeys that it’s cheaper to go by train so lord knows how many more commuters will be forced from the train on to the already congested roads with the news of another price hike. On some trains you can’t even get a seat yet they expect you to pay through the nose. £40 York to Newcastle – if there is two passengers you may as well fill the car up and still have change. Why oh why can’t our trains be like the ones in Europe.
