However Droylsden were winning the original game when it was abandoned due to fog - so why didn't Chesterfield forfeit the tie themselves?Great blog though, especially the Harry Hill clip.

Or something like that. I have to say, I still call it Champ and not Football Manager, it's hard to lose a nickname like that after many years.Oh yeah, nice blog.

I'm a Newcastle United fan, and just watching those two do that made me think; 'no wonder southerners think us northerners are stupid and thick'.re: charva / chava 'charva' is the geordie term for 'chav'. If you come up to the Toon you'll know what I mean.Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the blog off!

He has consistently proved himself to be a shocking referee from the sending off in the sheffield united-blackpool game, then the ghost goal for reading against watford. His performance in east midlands derby between the rams and forest was a joke and after that i thought id never see him in the championship for the rest of the season nevermind the premiership.It turns out he was only promoted to a football league ref at the start of this season. Are the people who are appointing the refs just forgetting that its atwell's name which keeps popping up in controversial decisions?

Does that clear that point up for you?

He was quoted on Sky as saying something like "I'm a Port Vale fan, but United are my second team." Or something like that anyway ...

"We will see what happens. If you want to win this tournament you have to beat everyone"I don't want them (Barcelona) to be honest."But whenever you say that you don't want someone, you get them. So I would prefer not to say anything."Mmm........I guess I'm just being pernickitty.....

There must have been at least twenty cliches or borrowed catchphrases used in that article and it wasn't even that long. Just because it's sports journalism doesn't mean it can't have imagination, analysis and originality. We're not thick, BBC.

I must stress that I favour no one football game over another - was just using CM to illustrate which division he may be plying his trade in next.

Glad most of you have found it just about readable. 3&4. Rocketastic: Remind you when you should laugh? OK, I'll drop you a text later. We still on for tonight by the way?6. Scottsewell: Charva? You've got me there (must be an age thing). I'm guessing it's something like chav? I personally think he looks like he should be on a picket line standing around a brazier - either that or gearing up for the Dexy's reunion. Wed 17 Dec 2008 13:15:39 GMT+1 dufcterror - I love the shimmy http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2008/12/review_of_the_week_14.html?page=23#comment10 Surely he'd play Football Manager?A much better and more realistic game!

In my opinion that sort of behaviour is worse than a 2 footed tackle.. its decieving, very unsportsman like and just not cricket at all!And that free kick spray is a brilliant idea, why isnt it over here yet? I cant think of a single negative about using such an innotive invention in todays modern game. Whats gonna be the FA's excuse? Using a free kick spray removes the error of human judgement from the game? Same thing they say about using video tech. Oh and that harry hill thing was hillareous too, i watched that one quite a few weeks back on TV, i was in stitches.Anyway! A very good review on the week Chris, some realy interesting stuff there, keep it up man Wed 17 Dec 2008 12:16:13 GMT+1 ChelseaSaffer http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/chrischarles/2008/12/review_of_the_week_14.html?page=0#comment0 funny as usual Chris.
