Bristol City 0 Fulham 2: it’s not the result, more the manner of it all.

If you’re going to lose your tenth game in thirteen matches, don’t do it when the weather’s terrible. Blustery wind, against a dark backdrop, while rain was illuminated against the floodlights and people were again asked to choke down another gutless, toothless display: of course they were going to rebel. Losing 2-0 to Fulham wasn’t beyond…

An Encapsulation of the Trump monster

I love this. I had to make a record of this, it’s stupendous. Well, it is horrific but it’s a great snapshot of the child-in-chief, of this buffoon, who’s winging his way through life, hoping against hope that people won’t conclude that he’s a total fraud. Gosh, the racism, the condescension, the off-handed dismissal and the…

Covers with little enforced irony.

There’s a show on the radio called ‘The Live Lounge’ wherein musical guests are requested to turn out a cover version and it’s often one that reaches across genres. That’s fine and something to be encouraged too, but such versions often seem to come with self-satisfaction, smugness and to be drunk on irony. It’s like…

Germany 4 Sweden 4 World Cup qualifier: 16th October, 2012.

Commentator: Lasse Granqvist What a beautiful thing this is. Everyone admires Germany, don’t they? And those who don’t are just being contrary for the sake of contrarianism. Here, on a run of eleven years without losing a World Cup qualifier in Berlin, Germany easily get 3-0 up at half time and then increase it to 4-0 in the second half…

The ‘It All Comes Down To This’ Oscars fiasco.

So, it’s the 1983 Oscars and some dribbling madcap thought that it was a good idea to get Liza Minnelli, Richard Pryor, Walter Matthau and Dudley Moore to all co-host and, much, much worse, to sing an opening song. From the You Tube comments, quoting one of the song’s writers: “…They were all scared stiff, but ordinarily if…

This is only a 28 minute long documentary but it’s a fascinating 28 minutes, presented by the train worker in the first ‘Mission Impossible’; and…

4th February 2017: Bristol City 1 Rotherham United 0

Terrible, terrible stuff at Ashton Gate, watching City achieve their first win since December 3rd, after watching City get their first point since December 3rd on Tuesday. Both sides befoul the Championship but at least Rotherham look to have a team ethic, City are just bitty and ponderous with no cohesion. The highlight of the first…
