10 German Bombers Chants Only For Classless Morons

If you attended the Germany v England game in Dortmund on Wednesday, and behaved in a way that properly represents our great country, then well done, and thanks for your support. If you attended and joined in the booing of the German anthem, and the braindead 10 German Bombers chanting, then you are a contemptible twat. I bet your mum’s really proud of you. I seriously cannot understand what the… Read Article →

Some journalists have stated that he had to go, that his actions made his position untenable. I’m personally not so sure. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not condoning or even defending what he said. I’m just saying, was it really bad enough… Read Article →

Finney spent his entire footballing career with his home town club but the association runs far deeper than that. Finney lived in the town all his life and also established his plumbing business there. The road on which North End’s Deepdale ground stands now… Read Article →
