‘You don’t have to be Disabled to be Different – Everyone’s Different’ aren’t they? REPUBLISHED

Someone two days ago read this post I had published 5 years ago and I thought it might be worth others reading it and thinking about it as well? American Kim Peek was quite a ‘different’ personality indeed in the flesh. He had both amazing ability and commendable insight about life. He had a strange […]

Arsenal ditched Arsène Wenger, and got a new manager – anywhere near ‘winning the Premier League’ now?

   When over a number of years of a long-standing destructive campaign by a group of moronic so-called Gunners supporters’ campaign undermined the position of Arsène Wenger, Arsenal’s iconic manager of 22 years, the gang finally got their wish and he was driven out last season by disgusting abusive chanting from the stands and the […]

UAFA Nations League and England get ‘outplayed’ against a top side (Spain), followed by being ‘dismal’ in a friendly (Switzerland) – all preceded AGAIN with a ‘head-in-the sand’ view of the team’s abilities?

          Well, only the football focused will have known, seemingly out of the blue but actually four years ago, that a ‘third’ men’s national-team full international tournament for the 55 members of UEFA (the sport’s European governing body) had been put in place [the other two being the existing World Cup and the […]

Arsène Wenger HAD to ‘GO’ to save Arsenal (2017-18) – Arsène Wenger HAS to ‘COME BACK’ to save Arsenal (2018-19)?

   Last season 2017-18, a large disgustingly vocal anti-Arsène Wenger destructive gang finally got their wish and had their manager of 22 years given the push, didn’t they? He was driven out by ‘so called’ Arsenal supporters who achieved it by abusive chanting from the stands and holding-up their anti-Wenger banners which undermined and completely […]

The so-called ‘Health Lobby’ is under attack – but NOT by the gutter Press?

  It was of some surprise last Sunday, to read in a respected broadsheet newspaper, a major article attacking the Governments (some would say weak?) attempts to curtail the food industry’s continued flooding of Britain with unnecessarily over-sugared food and drink. It is hardly the responsible action of a major quality newspaper, to publish a […]

World Cup 2018 ‘Semi Final’ England will encounter Croatia – time for sensible reflection?

      Without doubt England reached this semi-final, after 28 years of failures to do so (1990 – Paul Gascoigne’s ‘tears’ game), with nothing less than a full quota of luck [that included a crazy tournament when most the main contenders inexplicably fell by the wayside – Germany [Rank 1] bottom of their Group when […]

England faced Sweden in World Cup 2018– what a surprisingly WONDERFUL ending to a ‘Quarter Final’?

    Today, in the two Quarter-Finals  Sweden [Rank 17] are OUT as are Russia [Rank 66] (yesterday, in the first two Quarter-Finals  Ukraine [Rank 17] and Brazil [Rank 2]) were OUT) The feelings of English football fans ‘before’ this afternoon’s tussle with Sweden can best be summed-up by the quote “I don’t think us as a nation will get […]

Russia World Cup 2018 ‘Quarter Final’ England will face Sweden – how are the odds looking?

    (Today, in the first two Quarter-Finals:  Ukraine [Rank 17] are OUT, as are  Brazil [Rank 2]) There is much elation that England has at long last reached the Quarter finals of the World Cup, not least as a result of winning in a penalty shoot-out for the very first time ever, eh? People are getting […]
