The Women’s Game: It sure Ain’t Beautiful!

With the men’s game now predominated by the usual summer of musicalchairs for millionaires, have you taken in the opportunity to watch any of the UEFAWomen’s World Cup currently taking place in France? I have, and although I am in some agreement here with the sentiments of writers like Sean Ingle et al on many aspects of the ladies game, he and many of his sports writing colleagues don’t dare to touch upon the absolute dire standard of the football on display. If this is this cream of women’s football then it’s leaving quite a sour taste in the mouth. I’m all for mass participation in sport at every level, for every sex and for whatever that sport might be. But watching dozens of ponytails k...

England: 53 Years And Still Taking The Positives!

This is our latest box-to-box model, Mr Southgate! Typical. You wait a lifetime for a bit of success and then, like London buses, two semi-finals come along in less than last twelve months. Surely this gives us hope and optimism. Our ridiculously overpaid, overrated and overhyped footballers are getting ever closer to ending over fifty years of famine. It might not have come home yet but at least, it seems, the beautiful game might have made a note of our address. Now I don’t want to alarm anybody out there, particularly the brainless, drunken gobshites who masquerade as football supporters and who stink up every place the team plays in, but  I’m afraid that this is as good as it’s gonna get...

Is The Train Wreck President About To Come Off The Rails?

At CNN he’s known as Jim Acosta, a reporter of impeccable credentials of many years standing. Trump christened him a ‘rude, terrible person and that CNN should be ashamed to employ him’ blah de blah. ’ This, by the way, is all a bit rich when you think of the shame that millions of Americans now feel at having a total asshole leading the Western World. Of course as we all know the Donald has no idea of how to even spell irony, therefore his choice of words is totally lost on such a fool. As for my part, I have just re-named Jim, Jim Accosted as that’s what he certainly was during Wednesday infamous White House press conference when he was trying to simply do his job. The White House of cours...

Eleven Ways To Insult Your Jewish Lover!

Before I wrote this blog I looked up the definition of ‘Holocaust’ in five different dictionaries plus an online definition. Only one of the dictionaries defined it as ‘the destruction and loss of life of on an enormous scale.’ The other four sources had roughly similar definitions, but all went on to reference the ‘Jewish’ Holocaust in particular. What happened to the Jews was indeed an affront to humanity and an event which should be forever etched in the memory of mankind. But it’s not the only one. Indeed throughout all of history other races, creeds and peoples across the entire globe have been subjected to their own holocaust, the numbers, in my view are irrelevant. The Armenians at th...

Serena’s a Big Girl … But She’s Not Bigger Than The Sport.

It’s always the same ain’t it? As soon as any sports star gets caught acting a bit dodgy their first reaction is to become the victim, look for sympathy, blame something or something else, and in so doing deflect their conscious breaking of the rules or their unacceptable behaviour. We’ve seen it in professional cycling, where apparently ninety-nine per cent of the world’s asthmatics ply their trade. We’ve seen it at every Olympic Games since God knows when. We’ve seen in football, Ice Hockey …oh and don’t you just know it, we’ve seen it women’s professional tennis. Anybody for Maria Sharapova? In the wake of the litany of exposed examples of cheating, the excuses and the apologists for it b...

Facebook. Is It Time To Delete This Banality?

Who was it who said that bad things never come to an end? I don’t know, but it does appear as if things might be about to change and hopefully for the better. You see the zillionaire owner and founder of Facebook, Mr Mark Zuckerberg is facing an investigation by the U.S Federal Trade Commission, a consumer watchdog into how his company permitted a loophole to exist that essentially failed to protect millions of Facebook users’ personal data. So what’s all the do? Now I won’t bore you with the details, suffice as to say that the personal data of over 50 million users was extracted from Facebook by a company contracted by Cambridge Analytica. No. I’ve never heard of them either. Anyway, among ...

Spanish Bullfighter Manages To Get The Horn!

Here’s a question for you. How many activities can you think of that labour under the delusion that they’re a sport? It’s a great debate after a few pints and I’d encourage anybody to try it. Anyway, personally I reckon that no sport can be deemed to be as such unless it has a ball in it. Now I have my own list which basically includes such wastes of time as synchronised swimming, arm wrestling, and darts! Sorry but real athletes don’t stand around drinking pints of fecking bitter and whiskey chasers! There’s ten pin bowling and table tennis of course, which to be fair was invented as a game for four foot Chinese people which kind of explains why everything from the net, the bat and the tabl...

Clowns Should Be Restricted To The Circus

‘I don’t agree with what you said but I’d always defend your right to say it.’ In the last few years, unless you live in Russia, China or practically anywhere in the middle east, you would have probably come across this phrase, which sadly has become a lazy cliché employed by apologists for clowns like Katy Hopkins. Freedom of speech is important, it’s precious, and something we all take for granted. It’s what gives us the right to openly disagree with our politicians, and our political leaders without having to worry about a knock on the door in the early hours after which our loved ones never see or hear from us again. ‘Nobody has the right NOT to be offended.’ You’ve probably heard that o...

10 Reasons Why I Insist On Scottish Independence!

So, our ungrateful Scottish friends are sick of our marriage and want a divorce! Fair enough. After all we’ve been sleeping in separate beds for years now, though we have somehow still managed to 'bleep' them regularly!  Anyway, I reckon we should insist on their independence and here’s 10 reasons why. Though of course this list is far from exhaustive. HADRIANS WALL. The world has had its knickers in an almighty twist ever since the Donald announced his intention to build THAT wall to keep out millions of gringos who have the bloody audacity to seek a better life. What a shame that nobody has so far thought of a way of building one in the middle of the Mediterranean. Anyway, us English ...

Arise, Sir Cry Baby David!!!!

David Beckham OBE was once asked if he intended to have his son Brooklyn christened. Dave, or Rodney to give him his proper name’s, priceless reply was: ‘Yeah we probably will, but we don’t know into what religion.’ Ever since, Dave has been managing to fool his worldwide fanbase, the gullible celebrity obsessed media, politicians, the FA, The London Olympic Bid committee and probably his missus into thinking that he’s as thick as pig shit. And yet all the while, the crafty, squeaky clean Leytonstone boy has been making secret arrangements to avoid paying tax, has shagged his lesbian nanny, fleeced LA Galaxy, and has even managed to move the Beckham brand into UNICEF. Dave you see, makes eve...

HAIL DONALD J FIREFLY. THE NEW PRESIDENT OF FREEDONIA!!!

So there it is. Just when you thought the phrase, the lunatics are taking over the asylum’ was a cliché, it actually happens right before your very eyes. The inauguration itself was an unintentionally hilarious  event and a few minutes in, I was convinced that I was actually watching a re-make of ‘Duck Soup’. Actually I’m now even more convinced that this what I was watching. It reminded me of one of those cheap tacky weddings where none of the guests know one another, and them that do don’t get along. Anyway, America held its breath while its new President managed to recite 35 words without enraging gays, the disabled, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims or Meryl Streep!!! The other three Marx broth...

Resolutions?….Don’t Make Any Promises!

Fast food, missed visits to my gym, and gossiping behind neighbours’ backs. These are the qualities that make me an unpredictable, free-spirited and brave person. It’s New Year once more, the time we all make a host of bad conscience inducing promises also known as  New Year resolutions, like ‘I will never get fat again’, ‘I will help the wife around the house,’ or ‘I will spend at least one day per month away from the pub.’ Let me tell you that on New Year’s Eve, a friend of mine stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. Well, it was kind of embar...

Packaging!…..The Real Meaning Of Christmas.

So you’re all sorted. You’re up to your armpits in debt and will probably need a small mortgage to clear the credit card which you maxed out buying piles of absolute unnecessary shite for your horrible lazy children, and presents for family members, most of whom, can’t stand the fecking sight of you! But answer me this. When you was wasting your hard earned money did you ever, at any time, give some thought to the environment? Well if you didn’t then you should have because, unless you haven’t noticed, ‘green taxes,’ and I don’t mean the ones that get you home safely from the pub on a Friday evening, are about to be ramped up and will be used as a justification for every additional charge fo...

I Demand That Christmas Is Cancelled!

I demand that Christmas is cancelled! Yes I know we should all love it and that I should feel horrible about this, because not liking Christmas is akin to not liking puppies or cupcakes. But I apologise because I just about hate everything about it. So much so, that I just don’t know where to start but start I must, let’s kick off with the Christmas carols because already they’ve started buzzing like tiny, tortuous winter bees. And to be fair, there are ones I hate considerably less than others. I don’t mind listening to Eartha Kitt singing ‘Santa Baby’ but then again, I wouldn’t mind listening to Eartha Kitt singing the phone book, remember them? Alright, then a Twitter feed. I could also l...

Did You Know That Sport Is Making Americans Fat?

Americans. Did you know that sport is what’s making them all fat? Will I did. And to think that for years, medical opinion in the United States of America was divided, as well as way past exasperated, as to why millions of its citizens were basically the size of a small country. Now, there is absolutely no need for smugness on the part of any nation outside of the US, because throughout the western world, obesity rates are getting higher than the waistband on Simon Cowell’s trousers! But when it comes to the central cause of America’s fat epidemic, I have long had the answer. And to be honest that answer has been staring America in the stomach for years. And the answer is the word……QUARTER! ...

The Establishment Gets Trumped!

So there you have it. Donald has finally Trumped the establishment . ‘Brexit, plus, plus’ the great man even predicted it himself. A landslide when you come to think of it considering he has no political experience whatsoever. So now America’s elites, you know the usual rag bag of ‘we know better than you’ people in the media, the press, academia, big business and those hordes of largely in it for themselves politicians who wouldn’t know the inside of a dole office if they woke up in one, have been shown just how far they are removed from ordinary people. Even as I write this, there are voices coming from an RTE Ireland, radio programme still asking its guests if there are any silver linings...

Poppy Day?…..Just Pass Me The Opium!

Poppy politics eh? It’s enough to make you go red in the face. This morning, I bought my yearly poppy to mark the remembrance of those men and women who laid down their young lives so that people like ……well you know how it all goes by now. Anyway. I can’t properly explain to you why, but for the first time since I bought my very first poppy I now feel like keeping it in my pocket, if only for the benefit of not having to associate myself with a bunch of frenzied Poppy Gestapo who, if you haven’t already noticed, come out from their trenches this time of year. It was my late grandfather who explained to me why it is that the poppy is worn each November instead of any of symbol of remembrance...

The American Dream?……….It’s Giving The People Nightmares.

The American Dream? There are many who would say that particular train ran out of steam years ago. America might have once supplied the world’s dreams and its fantasies but not anymore. For ordinary Americans, the American Dream is giving them all nightmares; from the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, Vietnam, appalling gun crime, racial inequality and Obama to the current Presidential Campaign that reveals just how far American politics has sunk into the gutter. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is mentioned in the American Declaration of Independence and it doesn’t come more banal or intangible than that. Of course, who could disagree with the aspiration? Martin Luther King was on...

Seriously. Who’d Be An American Voter?

Our American voter friends may be thousands of miles away, but you’d have to have a heart of stone not to feel sorry for them as they approach the imminent presidential election. In November the great American public will literally find themselves between a rock and very hard place. Hilary or Donald? Even the very mental image of the ballot paper is quite disturbing. So who’s it to be? A maverick dodgy businessman who has promised to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the country or a woman who lied to the IRS about foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation? It begs the obvious question of course of ‘how did it all come to this?’ In the United States these days, running for President is ...
