Another good player sold which we could have done with staying this season. There's a reason why Cerny was never first choice for Spurs and then they bring in Ikerne!Anyway, hope the new manager voodoo works wonders in our favour tomorrow like it did for Peterborough when Jim Gannon was in charge for the first time.Hope all is ok Chris Fri 05 Mar 2010 16:42:10 GMT+1 StarfireReturns Hope it's nothing serious Chris.

Fri 05 Mar 2010 11:42:57 GMT+1 Chris Charles Hi all, Just in case any of you are looking in and wondering why Review of the Week hasn't appeared today (Fri 5 Mar)I've had to take the day off for family reasons. Hopefully business as usual next week.Cheers,Chris Fri 05 Mar 2010 11:12:40 GMT+1 Juan in Florida For next week's quotes entirely based on Lawro's weekend's predictions:"They've got quite a few injuries back and now they've got some competition for places, which is good for them" Lawro on West Ham. It's the first time I've ever heard that betting injuries back is a good thing."the only thing players are bothered about is getting paid every month, so it doesn't matter if David Gold or Donald Duck owns the club." Still on West Ham. I would actually think Donald Duck would be more of a Chelsea fan. He's always wearing blue"One thing that could prove decisive is who they pick in goal - Hilario really was hilarious last week against Manchester City last week" Lawro was simply on fire today.And the last one that I doubt could be published but I found amusing:"Steven Gerrard seems to have found his form" In my opinion, he actually used to be good. Thu 04 Mar 2010 21:26:31 GMT+1 FN Another good Quotes of the Week section, Maybe there could be a Keith Alexander special next week? Lots of important people in lower league (and some in the higher leagues) have said some great things about the man. Not forgetting Alexanders 'You can never have enough strikers' Thu 04 Mar 2010 14:23:14 GMT+1 andrew This post has been Removed Thu 04 Mar 2010 01:58:35 GMT+1 Ricardo "Is it me or does the pitch seem really big?

But "Canadia's favorite son..." from a non-Yank? Seems hard to believe. All I can think of is Homer Simpson looking at a map, saying, "So there's a NEW Mexico!" Wed 03 Mar 2010 17:41:50 GMT+1 Ulstershaker Joke text doing the rounds up in Manchester....Apparently, Wayne Bridge sent John Terry a text after the City game at Stamford Bridge saying..."That's how you play away old son!"

Wed 03 Mar 2010 15:28:21 GMT+1 Trusevich The "It's gold for Canadia!" comment is wrong.Maybe they were thinking of "It's a game-winning goal, it's a gold medal-winning goal, for Canadia's favourite son, Sidney Crosby!" which is just about 5 mins into the video here:, Pedantry FTW!

Wed 03 Mar 2010 13:21:58 GMT+1 Zukothesportsfan "The Terriers would have moved into fifth with victory but instead endured a chastening evening that ended their 11-match uneaten run in such an emphatic manner that manager Lee Clark must hope it does not damage the morale of his young squad."From your colleague Paul Fletcher's blog on Southampton's 5-0 win over Huddersfield. I'm guessing the Saints just gobbled them up? Wed 03 Mar 2010 11:19:12 GMT+1 Bishwaksen Bandyopadhyay good collection again Chris.....a question though, since you mentioned the Big Ed, do you also have a Little Ed and a Middle Ed and a Bigger than Middle but Smaller than Big Ed?Also, how long will Warnock be there? I think QPR should go for stability and appoint Roy Keane. Apart from anything else, it will please our dear old Jacks from Buxton.

The Guardian match report said: "... the home crowd lionised Shawcross by chanting his name." Tue 02 Mar 2010 18:30:58 GMT+1 BaggieMike Raeny - there may not be many comments over here - mainly because the same group of people comments on Chris' and Robbo's blog and the ramsey debate is still sort of ongoing on there.

Tue 02 Mar 2010 16:38:07 GMT+1 alabamagaribaldineck The comments reference the Stoke fans and Aaron Ramsey reminded me of the stupid idiot Stoke fan (on TV) who was making obscene gestures to him as he got in the ambulance, what a muppet he made my blood boil.Good job the true Stoke fans showed there respect... Tue 02 Mar 2010 16:37:57 GMT+1 stowyowl "Very rare to hit a double-hundred in the 50-over format."Sky News' Chris Roberts on Sachin Tendulkar's record 200 not out against South Africa -the ONLY double hundred in the history of ODIs.(Craig King, Somerset)Surely this shouldn't be a quote of the week as what the commentator has said is actually true. Craig King has made the mistake in assuming that 50 overs games and ODIs are the same. Tendulkar was actually the 10th person to score a double hundred in a list A match.

Tue 02 Mar 2010 16:18:29 GMT+1 richyp Anybody else hear the commentary earlier describing Collingwood's catch in the 2nd ODI against Bangladesh? Apparently it was "Like he's got something sticky on his hands", to which the reply was "Like he's got Teflon on his hands". Er, no, Teflon is non-stick! Tue 02 Mar 2010 15:09:37 GMT+1 Crafty13 # 20. Yes, it was good to see the vast majority of Stoke fans are decent football fans, that was a nice touch. What wasn't so classy though were the few idiots who were chanting 'You've only got one leg'. Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:59:28 GMT+1 RoamingRam25 Bob Ballard's ice hockey commentary was terrible for the whole Olympic fortnight.Get a transcript of the entire thing and post it up here - it's so laughably bad it wouldn't be out of place. Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:49:28 GMT+1 collie21 probably, there were all chatting about dribbing the ball into the box and I made a reference to dribbling......last night....somwhere, anyway, I thought it was hilarious, just goes to show what I know about comedy. More than Harry does about his strike force I reckon, but still not a lot. Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:35:15 GMT+1 BaggieMike Collie - maybe the mods didnt actually find it offensive/broke house rules but then days later someone complained about it and then it got modded. Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:24:36 GMT+1 collie21 By the way I left a rather childish comment here last week, ( or on last weeks blog) it was about dribbling, it took 3 days to get deleted, I was amused to get the email days later to tell me it had been deleted.

I think Harry's comment about his Striker that he doesn't rate, doesn't want to sell, thinks is brilliant, sums Harry up just right. I reckon he is somwhere close to the above comment in his true footballing knowledge. Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:20:09 GMT+1 Woodhouse_owl you refer to warnock as Colin, are you wednesday fan in disguise? Tue 02 Mar 2010 14:09:52 GMT+1 ControlledMagic I reckon Starfire gets quote of the week for #1 or #3, take your pick.Richard - don't like the Savage much, do you? Quite contemptible, sometimes, as a player but bizarrely I find him ok as a pundit!Chant of the week for me was what sounded like (on MOTD anyway) the whole of the Britannia Stadium singing 'one Aaron Ramsey' as the poor b8gger was stretchered into the ambulance. Tue 02 Mar 2010 13:34:09 GMT+1 couch_potato_peeler "As the Big Ed pointed out to me, Pavlyuchenko might have been at Euro 2008, but he has never actually played at a World Cup - Ed."Are you in touch with Mourinho then Chris, or is this another big 'ed?I look forward to this every week, class as always! Tue 02 Mar 2010 13:33:44 GMT+1 AddickCW "Didn't really listen to that interview then did we?"------------------------------------------I listened to his sarcastic comments about Blackburn's playing style, yes.Ironic really, given that he's made a team of expensive 'tital hopefuls' play like a bog-standard mid-table side.Maybe he should leave the sniping to Wenger. Tue 02 Mar 2010 13:26:48 GMT+1 Richard "He was just one of those players I just wanted to smash!" [Robbie Savage co-commentating on Man City-Liverpool, when asked what it was like to play against Javier Mascherano]Has anyone ever seen Savage actually make a tackle, let alone 'smash' anyone?

Tue 02 Mar 2010 13:10:18 GMT+1 resistance1984 Mourinho's comments remind me of good old days. And I'm kinda sorry for Rafa. I bet answering questions about his weight (or silhouette - nice word!) was a weird experience. Although he did well :) Tue 02 Mar 2010 12:50:50 GMT+1 James Heslop Heard at Milton Keynes Lightning on Saturday“Please don’t stand up while play is on going!

Banner at Rangers v Celtic match, regarding Tony Mowbray's poor record at Celtic.HAHA - I nearly fell off my seat laughing - great banter! Tue 02 Mar 2010 12:45:12 GMT+1 AddickCW Surely things might change Chris, now that you've got a manager with overwhelming fan support.I could be wrong, but Hart and Harford weren't quite as unanimously popular as old Mrs Doubtfire?Many thanks for smashing the nail in Palace's relegation coffin too. Tue 02 Mar 2010 12:45:05 GMT+1 Chris Charles 5. BaggieMike: Cheers for the links - always been a fan of the Barnesy rap. Not sure about the Barnes-Kay duet on Family Fortunes, mind. The only rap Vern's getting at the moment is one across the knuckles from his other half. Tue 02 Mar 2010 12:43:19 GMT+1 BaggieMike Also - nice blog ChrisThat brokeback mountain 2 comments is v. strange, i guess you had to be there (or in the case of the Brit commentator it obviously didnt help) Tue 02 Mar 2010 12:39:02 GMT+1 Chris Charles 1. StarfireReturns - he's there again!4. JacksfromBuxton: Good old Colin. Jury's out for me, but he can't do any worse than Hart and Harford - can he? Tough on Palace - would not be best pleased if it was the other way round. He's signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, so expect him out by Easter. Actually, now Briatore's no longer running the ship, things might change, so let's be optimistic and say end of August. As for Keano, nothing would surprise me.
