Are Villa going to “lie down” tomorrow? Should they lie down?

Intriguing stuff at the bottom of the Championship (football’s second tier in England and Wales). Rotherham United are already down; the second bottom Wigan Athletic must win tomorrow (away, against Reading) and next week to stand any chance of survival while Blackburn Rovers – once the winners of the Premier League back in the mid-1990s…

Suffer from indigestion and/or acid reflux?

I’m not shilling for any company, only singing the praises of almonds in general, as an almost immediate cure for horrid stomach problems. Such maladies have been causing me grief for ages. I’d been lying in bed at night and food that had been eaten hours ago was repeating on me, even almost exploding back…

Bristol City 3 Barnsley 2: City limp over the line to safety.

A humdinger of a game and one of those days that makes you envious of the Irish Republic and the Scandinavian countries who play their football season in the summer months. It was a triumph for a positive crowd carrying a team to victory and for a side that played with a strong team ethic….

Can Ivanka help ameliorate her oafish father?

“…At the 2016 Republican national convention, for example, Trump told the convention body that her father would fight for “equal pay for equal work” and for paid parental leave, both at odds with the party platform and the now president’s campaign rhetoric….” I’ve got no sympathy for the stunningly entitled, lazy, embittered, phony-baloney, crooked, maladroit…

On Preston North End 5 Bristol City 0

Turned on Radio Bristol at around half time to be told that it was an even game and that, although 1-0 down, a point could be useful tonight, since all the other teams around us are just as miserable and losing. What could Lee Johnson have said to them at half time? I resisted the…
