It is just a shame that Liverpool could not finish Atletico Madrid off to set up an all English final.http://the-fa-premier-league.blogspot.com/ Mon 03 May 2010 07:00:29 GMT+1 LincsKopite http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2010/04/review_of_the_week_64.html?page=95#comment47 Quality article as ever Chris :) Sat 01 May 2010 08:49:18 GMT+1 tone1947 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2010/04/review_of_the_week_64.html?page=93#comment46 45.

Fri 30 Apr 2010 15:51:43 GMT+1 Eewires http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2010/04/review_of_the_week_64.html?page=67#comment33 Fulham side in 75 were in the old 2nd division and were loaded with old favourites who were now at the twilight of their careers such as Bobby Moore and Alan Mullery. On the day West Ham won at a canter (apart from Billy Bonds who never did anything at less than a sprint).Interestingly the 22 players that started that game were 21 Englishmen and 1 Irishman. Both subs were english too (yes, only 1 per side). Can't imagine that happening now, and slightly surprised it even happened then as most teams had a healthy scots and welsh contingent at that time.

Their precarious position sparked an extraordinary online rant from Mariners fan Poojah on Grimsby site The Fishy, most of which is unrepeatable, although it would be rude not to give you a (heavily edited) taste: "For starters, work can (get lost). If they think I'm going to be there on Monday morning they've got another thing coming. No way am I going in to spend time dealing with (idiots) that I can barely stand being with when I'm in a good mood...."Dad, you can (go away). This is your fault. Your idea. You introduced me to this shower of (manure). 'Come with me to Blundell Park,' you said, 'Come and support the boys.' What could I do? I was (flipping) four, what choice did I have? Why not get me hooked on heroin whilst you were at it? I could have gone with mum shopping for bras and knickers at British Home Stores, but no, you knew best...."The girlfriend can definitely (go away). Her best attempt at consolation - "I don't know why you're bothered; you knew they were (rubbish) anyway". Yes love, but they're MY (rubbish) team....."The radio can (go away) . On my way home from the match, whilst driving down the M180, I caught three completely separate stations playing 'Down' by Jay Sean at the exact same (flipping) time. The song's the best part of a year old, how the (hell) does that happen by coincidence?!"That, on the other hand, is quality banter! 5 stars!!!

JacksfromBuxton: And a fine song it is too - although must admit I prefer Neat Neat Neat. Met Captain Sensible once when he was performing 'Wot' at some kids' programme hosted by Bob Carolgees at Alton Towers. As luck would have it (didn't know he'd be there) I was wearing my Damned t-shirt and he came over for a natter, Top bloke. 22. JacksfromBuxton: You're right - could name every single Cup and result from 1970-87 but would struggle to name the last three. Could be something to do with age of course. Last really decent Cup final I saw was Liverpool-West Ham in 2006. 26. BaggieMike: Yes, very few people I've heard who are not delighted for Fulham. Helps that their manager is such a nice chap.

Because Chris is a former music journalist and does bring up references I do like to reciprocate. PS I wouldn't have known the answer to your question, I had a feeling about The Damned but the song title escaped me. :) Fri 30 Apr 2010 15:39:47 GMT+1 BaggieMike http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2010/04/review_of_the_week_64.html?page=55#comment27 27 - we have yet to invent the technology that could create an animatiom with a high enough frame rate to capture all of Fergies numberous gestures of disgust - or keep up with his chewing jaw Fri 30 Apr 2010 15:38:58 GMT+1 JacksfromBuxton http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2010/04/review_of_the_week_64.html?page=53#comment26 25.

Bay City Rollers had been No 1 for several weeks with Bye Bye Baby, but Mud knocked them off the top spot with Oh Boy, which maybe should be re-released in time for the final as Oh Woy? As for Rafa, time will tell, but it's fair to say Liverpool have had better seasons. 13. JacksfromBuxton: Correct! A double from Alan Taylor as I recall.15. JacksfromBuxton/16.

Sounds like a must-read!6. JacksfromBuxton: Yes, fantastic achievement by the Cottagers. As a QPR fan, I think I'm supposed to have an in-built hatred of our west London rivals, but I must confess to having a bit of a soft spot. It goes back to the days when my great-grandmother would regale me with tales of how she and her schooolfriends would be let in free for the last 10 minutes of every game at Craven Cottage. There was also the time she was told off for running in school on the day Queen Victoria died, but I'll bore you with that one another time.8. BaggieMike: The whip-round starts here!
