    A manager at my place tried to give me a bollocking for being racist, just because i called an Irish colleague Seamus......when everyone else called him James. My explanation why didn't wash with said manager.....until Seamus himself told him it was irish for James. Manager's name was Tim...me then calling him Tadhg still didn't go down well

    If it's all about honouring the present manufacturers contract then that's fair enough i guess

    Is anyone else getting totally bored with this teasing, "show em just a bit, no....not too much...not yet" approach the club's merchandising/marketing depts are using ? Two things spring to mind here : 1. Other teams sometimes play their last league game in next season's kit, thereby giving fans an opportunity to buy in plenty time for holidays etc. 2. Aren't the club in too much of a supposedly embarrassing position to be fannying around with the launch, like we're still the Bertie big B*ll*cks we think we are ? Stop messing around and give the fans something to look forward to. I mean, judging by the amount of season tickets already snapped up, I think they deserve it.

    News story of the day

    In a previous employment i worked on a notorious council estate as a housing official and i had to deal with more than the occasional domestic violence case, including "male dv" which IS rarer in my experiences. Any bloke who slaps his missus around (and worse) is total dogshite on my shoe. Same goes when the roles are reversed. Vermin.

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I remember in my early days as a VTer that Ahameed had a pop at me, criticising a point I'd made about....erm....cant recall but anyway, his words were "if you can't say anything nice then just shut up, you f**king idiot !". How ironic. Then, 8 yrs later I'm at little aston hospital for an outpatient appointment and I'm flicking through a Bupa magazine and there he is, on a profile page. Luckily I wasn't down to see him but it just goes to show that you never know when folks' paths will sometimes cross.

    We'll that's a surprise (about not snapping you....i can't comment about your old man !)....out of all the 400 pics he usually takes, he gets all of us at least once - ah well, as you say there's always next week !

    I went to a local grammar where football was banned cos "wugger" was THE only sport apparently. Except when in winter when the playing fields were too frozen for wugger so the teachers "let" us play football instead......only, we didn't have any footballs so we had to use basketballs instead. We might as well have used cannon balls especially when heading one or getting one square in the spuds. It was marginally preferable to cross country though

    Getting a home delivery is a great option for just before Xmas, thereby avoiding the masses, traffic jams, finding a parking space etc. Only problem there is that you have to book your slot at the start of Dec almost 3 weeks ahead or you miss out However did we cope back in the day ?

    Asda at Queslett......... i swear to God that some families see this place as a daytrip out ! Ok, sometimes bringing the "babbies" is unavoidable but dont take 5 mins comparing 2 cans of beans, just cos 1 is 2p cheaper than the other - MOVE OUT OF THE WAY !!!!

    Do. I can't make it every week cos of my shift patterns but it's a great course and plenty of friendly folk around. Usually 500 take part and there's normally a photographer hanging around who posts his Flickr stuff on the Arbo parkrun page the day after, so strike a pose dude !
