With their green and vegan philosophy, there's finally a team TV can support:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36277085
A former work colleague of Mrs Slaughterboy, a Dagenham & Redbridge fan, has met the Chairman of FGR and says that he's rarely had the misfortune to share the company of such an arrogant, loathsome arse. This description, coming from a man who spent his entire working life in the British Army and on London Underground, must be seen to carry some weight. Jim, for it is he, is not one to disparage lightly.

I saw some footage on Have I Got News For You of FGR employees, restricted to a strict vegan diet at work, secretly filmed driving off to local sweet shops to guzzle Curly Wurlys, Refreshers, Sherbert Saucers (I'm guessing here: as you can see, my vague knowledge of sweeties dates me horribly!) and, even worse, YouTube footage of several more employees chomping pies outside the local Greggs. Very funny it is, too!  :D

The Chairman, one Dale Vince, looks like the kind of bloke who used to front a band like, say, Underworld, and is now using his ill - gotten gains to force bland fayre and football onto the visiting fans (and the Home fans too) next season.

He also looks like a 'Dad-Dancer': a crime against humanity in my book...

I have heard similar rumours...

Perhaps the funniest thing I heard about them was when, to the tune of "Chirpy, Chirpy Cheep, Cheep", some visiting fans began chanting:

"Where's your burger van? (Where's your burger van?)
Where's your burger van?"

Stranraer 1 - 4 St Mirren.

Stop the season now!

(Yes, it's already time for my annual comment on the ridiculously early start of competitive football in Scotland.)

That's because of the ridiculously early start of snow in Scotland.

Next week, isn't it?!  ;)

I've had several no snow days when I've been to Scotland.

Mostly not. But some  :)

All those Game of Thrones fans who keep saying "Winter is coming" have clearly never been to the Outer Hebrides!

It started so early so that Rangers could go back into Europe with their sun-beds..

My mate Iain originates from the Shetland Islands.

After flying from Sydney where he now lives to the Shetlands (via Berlin and Edinburgh) to visit his parents and sister, his jet lag and body temperature regulators were further thrown into confusion by single digit night time temperatures and the fact that the sun only got low in the sky between 11pm and 2am without ever going under the horizon!

Met him in London a fortnight ago on his way back. He looked knackered!

To further amuse him, Edinburgh airport lost his luggage between there and the Shetlands and, after being reunited with it at Heathrow on his way home, his luggage went missing again at Abu Dhabi!!

I'll stick to jolly old Blighty meself!  :)

Sounds like the right idea - it's just not worth the Air Miles!

How are you doing Shayne?

Hopefully the cast comes off on Friday and I'll be back in the special boot again: far easier to hobble about on.

Then about 8 weeks of gradual tendon stretching, followed by 3-5 months of physio and exercises.

Think my football career may be over...

Good news - sounds like you're coming along nicely.

After all of that stretching and exercising a whole new world could open up for you - ever thought of ballet?
