I don't have the funds and now have a family visit and so didn't try.  I'll be watching through my fingers on Sky.

 

Boxing gloves may be a more practical option.

Working nights this weekend so won't see much of it but hope City do it. Ironic that Northampton are managed by a Bradford lad.

Just back from Majorca where I had a holiday, with just my 4yo daughter as the other half couldn't be bothered taking the time off, and we passed Real Mallorca's ground on the way to a dolphin park, the tour guide said theey had designed the new stadium to be oval shaped, but ran out of money during building and have had to leave the ends open.

When I got back to Alcudia, I noticed one of the tour operaters were running a trip for today (Monday) to see the just Relegated RCD Mallorca play Real Betis for 80Euro including a beer, tickets & transport. This reminded me of an article in one of the papers (probably the Guardian) of some football fans who live in the UK, but have season tickets at Ajax, and with cheap flights it's cheaper to watch European football than watching English Premiership.

 

I would also like to comment on the WBA v Man U game as my 4yo does - BONKERS!

Already looking forward to next season, hope it throws up a midweek fixture away in Rome, followed by a Sunday fixture away at Yeovil!

Brendan Rodgers is now the 5th longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having been in charge for 11 (eleven) months. Yes, months.

Stoke finish high up again and get shut of Pulis. Saunders sacked after being given mission impossible. Mancini, Atkins and Mcdermott victims of their own success. Got to love football. If Bradford City struggle next year in league 1 I hope the board stick with him.

I think the cash spent by Pulis ultimatley was his downfall, seemed to spend a lot on players who didn't achieve any more than those they replaced.

 

By a total culture shock if Martinez ends up there!  Given the press was reporting this morning he had 48 hours to decide on the job and are now reporting he's promised Whelan an answer on his future by noon tomorrow.

Bradford city centre last night. I may not be the biggest football fan in the world but the last time there was this many people in the centre must have been in the 70's. ;)

 

Brilliant stuff and at a time when otherwise we might have had various factions of dicks on the street about the Woolwich incident.

Explaining Football to Americans - I particularly liked this bit "One man sitting near me was uttering a torrent of profane anti-Wenger imprecations in a low monotone, in the manner of a psychotic cattle auctioneer narrating a pornographic movie". :D
