Struggling for postaweek2011 inspiration, I considered finally turning to the WordPress Post A Week blog to get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately, I picked a day when they suggested I write about my least favourite school teacher. Don't get me wrong - there's plenty to go on - but I could only recall one teacher worth writing … Continue reading Thanks for the inspiration, Blatter
Alex Ferguson has today blasted the FA for pressuring referee Lee Mason into reporting Wayne Rooney for his foul-mouthed rant at a Sky TV camera. According to the eternally obnoxious Scot, they 'bullied' Mason into doing it so that they could fine the player.
