Football

The slow creep of women reporters and commentators on football programs e.g. MOTD and football on Five and the results show. Noooooo this is men playing football - go and comment on women’s football

Couldn't agree more

I stopped reading newspapers about 6 years ago - fed up with being constantly lied to. Most of what you read is either pure fiction or downright lies.

Queing at the gate

Queuing at the gate has nothing to do with conditioning - it is so that there is a good chance you will find space in the locker for your bag. Those that get on last invariably do not (find space).
