Isn't "It's a home match so ... time running out quickly for Utrecht. Incidently Johan according to general relativity time would run slower if it was played at PSV's ground. Is that right, Ruud? It's a funny old game." a bit more likely.

I have no idea how this match went, nor the original quote, but perhaps it could have gone along these lines:"2-1 down and time running out quickly for Utrecht", which would then make sense, and not be an amusing quote.Slight rant there, but we need standards from the Beeb! And I'm also in agreement with anyone who thinks Lawro should never be published on this page, nor appear on the screen ever again.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle said that Gallas should have been sent off. Wiley responded to Coyle's comments by divulging the he'd taken no action after Zat Knight had earlier lectured him to the effect that Mahatma Gandhi was "the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa or total nonviolence" and not the drug-crazed hedonist he is remembered as today.Owen Coyle has yet to respond to these revelations but the BBC understands that Zat Knight faces an internal disciplinary inquiry for earlier comments relating to Andy Warhol's role in the Suez crisis.

By partaking in Muruqaba, one is able to develop along their spiritual path by developing a better awareness of their self in gradual stages ascending through into an awareness of the Universe and then of God. The final aim of Muruqaba is for the individual to become extinguished within God (Fanah Filla) before returning to their original state, but with their new knowledge of God and their place within the Universe. Not sure if this applies to Wiley though, think he just bottles it.

He was not Egyptian in any real sense". The ref later stated that he viewed Muhammad Ali as the ‘Father of Modern Egypt' and therefore had no alternative but to take Bull's name.

Steve Bull is well known for his interest in the dawn of the Arabic literary renaissance, known as the Nahda.Since leaving Wolves he's published several notable works on Egyptian history between 4th March 1769 and 2nd August 1849.I though everyone knew that.

John Terry is at club level, not World Cup level.The appointment of Man U centre back Rio Ferdinand to the England captaincy post is just one of the right steps in the right direction made by Capello.

The one with a slope (side-to-side I think). That would mean you'd have to favour one winger over the other if time was running out.

Personally however I just find it odd that Keano Holloway Wenger and Lawro all usually make up the most part of it, with that bloke at CP who names escapes me for a moment. It's either the big egos or the big noses or both. #35 is your real name United Dreamer? Lovely brag on the Unionists...#31 According to general relativity if Holland played Bolivia, they would loose as the Dutch would play for about 70 mins and then stop...if the game was in la Paz they might not even come out for the second half.

As far as I know time runs out at the same rate.(Dhaval Jogia, UK)-----------------------------------------------------Great blog as always Chris!The above quote got me thinking. As we all know clocks run at different speeds at different altitudes according to general relativity. Clocks tick faster at lower altitudes.http://www.physicsforums.com/archive/index.php/t-105308.htmlpurvect describes this well (3rd post down)Eindhoven and Utrecht are at different elevations so the clock will run at different rates at their respective grounds.http://population.mongabay.com/population/netherlands/2756253/eindhovenThe average elevation of Eindhoven, Netherlands is 19 meters. http://population.mongabay.com/population/netherlands/2745912/utrechtThe average elevation of Utrecht, Netherlands is 1 meters.So according to general relativity a game at Eindhoven last longer than at Utrecht so the Utrecht players will have more urgency as they play more games at the higher rate.But conversely if they play at Eindhoven with greater urgency they have more time (at least hypothetically) so time would run out slower...But it does depend where the game was played which isn't mentioned.I think I've got that right.

The England back field is firmly set.With due respect, John Terry could have been striped of the Chelsea captaincy after failing to convert the decisive penalty that cost them the Champions League title in Moscow a couple of years ago. John Terry is at club level, not World Cup level.The appointment of Man U centre back Rio Ferdinand to the England captaincy post is just one of the right steps in the right direction made by Capello.
