Comment on Podcast Episode 3 – David Low by y4rmy.

There is a great line in one of Mark Twain’s letters (I can’t remember to whom it’s addressed) in which he says “I’m sorry this letter is so long, I didn’t have time to write a shorter one”.

If Mark Twain did write that then he stole it from Blaise Pascal 🙂 :

“I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”

Anyway, here are my targets for the next few years:

2014/2015: Win an Oscar for best Actor.

2015/2016: Win the Nobel Prize for Physics

2016/2017: Become an Astronaut.

The Sunderland unregistered player issue has resurfaced as the teams affected are starting to drop out the gravy train league

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/may/03/sunderland-face-legal-fight-points-deduction

As a Norwich fan I have to say it’s a bit daft (if not pathetic) complaining about this now and I’m not sure what it’s meant to achieve. Sunderland will likely finish quite a few points above the last relegation spot, so the removal of the point they gained wouldn’t make a difference.

That’s not to say the original decision was right. It was wrong and, worse, it was made in secrecy. But the time to appeal was when the story broke in the papers, not now.

What has always amazed me about the national team in the late sixties and seventies was that we never made it to the European Championships at all.

There were only 4 teams in the finals until it was expanded to 8 in 1980. In that time, England only qualified in 1968. There will be 24 (!) teams in the 2016 finals.

Imran back in court on Tuesday

We predicted this when the RIFC accounts appeared, so I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner. The difference this time is that Ahmad now has hard evidence that his potential award is in jeopardy.

LNS – A Summary
You’ll find no sympathy for Bolton among the other members of the football league, particularly their odious CEO Phil Gartside. This is a man who wanted a sealed two tier premiership with entry to it based on some vague notion of “size and finance threshold”. I wonder if he stills wants to apply the same criteria?
Bolton are the epitome of how you shouldn’t run a football club, proceeding unsustainably with colossal losses year after year funded by the largesse of a single individual who has now turned off the tap.

This judge is amazing entertainment. Refreshingly, there’s virtually no abstruse impenetrable legalese, and he genuinely seems aware of the world outside the courtroom.  The poor old counsels are almost having to earn their money.

Would be quite funny if Dave King was charged with contempt of court for prematurely celebrating the dismissal of his contempt of court case. 03


LNS – A Summary
As much distaste as I have for Dave King, I confess that I’m still puzzled as to what was revealed of any importance in the anodyne interview with Jim White, and it sounds like the judge thinks that too. The suspicion is that MA simply wants to attack King on every front possible.
Still, I believe King’s affidavit is an amazing own goal: He just can’t stop himself lying. It would have been far more plausible to claim he’d merely misunderstood the terms of the agreement and it was an, ahem, honest mistake. There is clearly a great deal more he could have revealed about the retail agreement.

I’m generally not that interested in stories about which manager is going where, but this quote caught me eye:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/34980312#

And, on Twitter on Wednesday evening, the manager said he was “bemused and frustrated by shockingly incorrect stories from certain media outlets“.

Join the club!  19
