Fri 05 Dec 2008 00:30:58 GMT+1 collie21 and he is not a manager anymore,..............................................................................stunning. Thu 04 Dec 2008 16:54:49 GMT+1 collie21 He also looks like a young Capt Birdseye Thu 04 Dec 2008 13:40:21 GMT+1 Football Fanatic Roy Keane looks like a spartan from the movie 300 Wed 03 Dec 2008 17:44:37 GMT+1 Armchair Dave Roy Keans beard reminds me of the classic TV series "Beadles About". Remember when Jeremy used to appear at the end of the setup? He was usually dressed as a police man with a thick, Roy-Keane-esque false beard, shoving a microphone into the gob of some fuming punter. Wed 03 Dec 2008 16:42:55 GMT+1 yannisx He thinks he may be out by Xmas, so at least he can get a part time job as Santa Claus Wed 03 Dec 2008 16:11:22 GMT+1 nufcadam09 This post has been Removed Wed 03 Dec 2008 15:18:11 GMT+1 Armchair Dave No probs Chris - I'm sure anyone who want's to see the clip can search for Leeds and Histon on youtube. :-)You have to admit though, fans can be incredibly funny at times and that was one of them.:-) Wed 03 Dec 2008 14:00:41 GMT+1 Bigpad Keane looks like Gerry Adams without specs! Wed 03 Dec 2008 12:57:32 GMT+1 scottsewell #41 I'd love to put those pink boots up somewhere else of Ronaldo's anatomy! Wed 03 Dec 2008 12:42:49 GMT+1 scottsewell Happy Birthday Mrs Chris Charles.Ps - Keep up the good work Chris Wed 03 Dec 2008 12:41:29 GMT+1 saint at heart Roy Keane lost the plot when he admitted setting out to end another players ability to earn a living at football. Wed 03 Dec 2008 12:38:14 GMT+1 leetaylor7 Why dont you buy her a pair of the pink boots for her birthday? Tell her all the top players are wearing them. Nicklas Bendtner... Oh, er maybe not!Although I am very suprised CR isnt wearing them, thought they would be right up his street... Wed 03 Dec 2008 12:37:51 GMT+1 Chris Charles 38. BCChris: Cheers, man! Wed 03 Dec 2008 11:14:32 GMT+1 Zulu Warrior Very droll Chris a good take on the week. This beats all the mountainous output of deadly serious mu-ars-chel-lfc drivel that constitutes 90% of BBC football coverage. Good to hear about other clubs and see that a sensayuma is still thriving elsewhere in the football world. Nice one. Wed 03 Dec 2008 11:14:10 GMT+1 BCChris Hey Chris.Great blog as usual man, touched upon some real sensitive issues this week :PAnd to comment #12, oh my days i nearly had to change my pants after reading that, lol joker.Anyway Chris, keep up the good work man, and i look forward to your next blog.Peace Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:54:02 GMT+1 djfuts great article mate!

If you look in the third sentence of this blog, it's mentioned there.Spooky huh? Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:51:05 GMT+1 JMcK Roy Keane's beard looks like a tamer version of Mel Gibson's beard from a while back. Or Saddam's beard when he got captured. Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:46:01 GMT+1 Chris Charles Er make that trim. Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:40:48 GMT+1 Chris Charles 31. Dobbin808: By George I think you've got it - give the beard a little grim and he's a dead ringer. Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:40:26 GMT+1 Chris Charles 20. collie21: Agree, flowers are a must - I'm also taking her out to dinner and I will shave first. Plus my three-year-old 'bought' her a box of chocolates and wrote her own name on the card for the first time, so plenty of brownie points there. 28. Celts_R_Here: Yes I do give the impression that she wears the trousers but in fact....oh all right - she does. 22. manucastle: Yep, didn't think it was my finest hour either - sometimes it just doesn't flow the way you'd like, but think I've just about got away with it. 30. 355gts: You're right, the Golden Shoe and Ballon D'Or are two separate awards, of which Ronaldo won both, but the way I wrote it suggested they were one and the same thing - told you it wasn't flowing! Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:32:44 GMT+1 Dobbin808 Roy Keane = Roger Delgado (70s Doctor Who baddie 'The Master') surely? Wed 03 Dec 2008 10:27:57 GMT+1 355gts SOmeone must have pointed out already (I can't be bothered to read all the comments), that the Ballon d'Or is the golden ball for Europe's best player. The Golden Shoe is different!!! Wed 03 Dec 2008 09:21:53 GMT+1 Celts_R_Here Keane's beard is quality!!! Good blog, some excellent little jokes plus your missus seems to wear the trousers in your relationship!!! Keep up the good work! Wed 03 Dec 2008 09:09:55 GMT+1 Wedjwants Really enjoyable blog Chris, keep up the good work. Particularly enjoyed the final words on the ref at Wycombe, "I even told Peter Taylor to get back in his box", brilliant! Wed 03 Dec 2008 08:54:00 GMT+1 Edik Great blog.The dive made me laugh, but there is one problem. It wasn't the worst dive ever. It was the best; he won the penalty, and he was offside too.Is that Kaka thing actually real. I'm going to go home and try that. Queue a load of broken objects in my flat. Wed 03 Dec 2008 08:52:18 GMT+1 King-Dion Great blog. Very funny all the way through. On the subject of pink boots, I've heard that they are soon to be compulsory for footballers playing at Gay Pride Park in Derby. Wed 03 Dec 2008 08:47:28 GMT+1 rl #21,I agree, that dive had me laughing out loud! Wed 03 Dec 2008 08:31:35 GMT+1 eirebilly Excellent blog again Chris, look forward everytime to your blogs and you have not let me down again.As for Keane, he looks like one of the bearded fraternity that used to haunt the streets of west Belfast in the early 70's. Very dodgy indeed. Wed 03 Dec 2008 07:54:02 GMT+1 Sevenseaman Ahmadinejad is apt, and same twinkle in the eye too. Perhaps equally bullheaded. Whither Sunderland? Wed 03 Dec 2008 04:19:17 GMT+1 manucastle I always enjoy your blogs.. But this one was a little less funny than your own standard. (i.e. Every time I read, I usually have to suppress my bouts of laughter with difficulty. But today it was all smiles with no sound).Hope I am not confusing. Enjoyable none the less.GO BURNLEY! Wed 03 Dec 2008 03:59:35 GMT+1 sheeptest Okay I know it's not from this week but I reckon this dive's better... Wed 03 Dec 2008 03:12:26 GMT+1 collie21 So buy a new one, and flowers, and present.............and er don't grow a beard Tue 02 Dec 2008 22:51:39 GMT+1 Chris Charles P.S. I'm even less of a legend now she's found out I've just shrunk her jumper in the wash - oops. And it's her birthday tomorrow - double whoops. Tue 02 Dec 2008 22:07:26 GMT+1 Chris Charles Evening all,Many apologies, only just got round to replying.3. ArmchairDave: I did know about the Leeds fans but decided not to include it as couldn't link directly to the swearing. Really sorry, but for that reason I'm going to have to ask the moderators to remove your comment - or at least the link, in case I get in trouble!6. Parag: Gotta disagree with you, Robbo's the main man as far as I'm concerned, but happy to take a compliment if it's laid on a plate!8. Disocagogo: I just told my girlfriend I was a 'legend' and she laughed out loud. Nuff said, but thanks anyway.11. gstonesunited: Not sure about the breast cancer thing but it would make sense and if so, great news. I'm all for fellas wearing pink, but I see enough of it with two young daughters to last me a lifetime.15. sancastlejim: Yes, beards and footballers - Frank Lampard snr, Danny McGrain, George Best - all top men. But it does make Keano look even more scary than usual. Would you like to be the one who tells him he's out of a job? Tue 02 Dec 2008 22:01:49 GMT+1 blur-mufc keano looks like pierce brosnan in robinson crusoe.. Tue 02 Dec 2008 22:01:05 GMT+1 Killieferg I think Keano's starting to look like a young Karl Marx! But does he own the means of production... of goals. Oh what wit.. Tue 02 Dec 2008 21:52:35 GMT+1 sandcastlejim that beard will cost him his job. laughable. Tue 02 Dec 2008 19:43:58 GMT+1 collie21 Great piece, in Fact Keanos beard is the same as Gerry Adams, and a bit of Seige Mentality might do Sunderland good. But I have to say the piece by Dunphy, is ludicrous. Dunphy is well known for being controversial, over the top and a prone to exaggeration. I have to say I didn't know there was new owners at Sunderland, I had missed that, but I think Keano and Sunderland will still be in premiership come next September. AS for the colour pink, I will say nowt about Harris, but it's the colour in vogue for real men with or without lots of money on the Cote D'Azur, I just can't bring myself to wear it. Perhaps it clashes with my Irish complexion. Tue 02 Dec 2008 19:30:22 GMT+1 Ian Bittiner That dive is hilarious! Tue 02 Dec 2008 19:00:06 GMT+1 levdavidovich I admire his resilience in the face of threats from the US, but he really needs to bring in some progressive laws regarding the treatment of women and homosexuality. Also, needs to invest in a centre-back. Tue 02 Dec 2008 18:28:46 GMT+1 gstonesunited As far as i'm aware the boots are in aid of breast cancer. Also anything which broaden the following of the sport has to be a good thing. Tue 02 Dec 2008 18:25:51 GMT+1 warwicktoharrisburg Hey is it just me or does he look more like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's evil twin brother with every passing day! Tue 02 Dec 2008 18:18:57 GMT+1 NEARPOSTHEADER The astounding thing about the 'Worst Dive Ever' is that the ref actually awarded a penalty! His bank account records should've been examined to see if any large deposits had been made.Speaking of worst dives, Stevie G last night against West Ham? Come on Stevie! You can't play the tough, no-nonsense tackler and do that girly, legs-splayed, we've-run-out-of-ideas-and-desperately-need-a penalty thing much more - refs are catching on. Tue 02 Dec 2008 17:56:17 GMT+1 discoagogo 'thank god, you r more enjoyable and less biased than robbo...hopefully the days of his biased critics are over...noce one Chris...-----------------------------------Robbo and Chris are both legends in their own right, without them we'd be stuck with the mega serious phil mcnutney, long live chris and robbo!Great blog chris, particularly the dive link! thanks for brightening up my day! Tue 02 Dec 2008 17:42:30 GMT+1 panchopuskas Maybe it's a bet that he won't shaver until Sunderland win. Should be in time for Father Christmas ads by next December. Tue 02 Dec 2008 17:37:07 GMT+1 Parag Thank god, you r more enjoyable and less biased to read than Robbo... Hopefully, the days of his biased critics are over...Nice one chris... Tue 02 Dec 2008 16:45:50 GMT+1 Leviticus Gloves, body stockings, pink boots? As Jules and Sandy might say, 'get her dear'.And football used to be a game for men! Tue 02 Dec 2008 16:36:42 GMT+1 Medieval-Evil Anyone taking bets on whether Sunderland will be named part of the axis of evil before George Bush leaves office?I always wondered whether the name 'Stadium of Light' was supposed to be ironic... Tue 02 Dec 2008 16:26:03 GMT+1 Armchair Dave Chris,Nice read but you missed the highlight of the week for me. It was Leeds fans commenting on the quality of ITV. You can find the 45 second clip on YouTube - careful contains swearing...[Unsuitable/Broken URL removed by Moderator]I nearly fell off my chair laughing. Quality and also informative.Also notice that Roy Keane has managed 3 colours in his beard - black, ginger and grey. Surely he has to win a prize for that... Tue 02 Dec 2008 15:44:48 GMT+1 lordslum The Gelled Tumbler is still a novice looking at that dive. Brilliant. Showing how it should be done. Tue 02 Dec 2008 15:43:29 GMT+1 Shaun Very enjoyable blog, Chris. I wouldn't have minded being in Jarred's position! Though, oddly enough, I think I would've preferred to have been a linesman than a fourth official - at least I'd have something to do! Tue 02 Dec 2008 15:21:42 GMT+1
