The English Football League (EFL) have finally made a decision on Leeds United and ‘spygate’ (Sky’s words, not mine), by fining the club £200,000 and introducing a new rule.

This new regulation will presumemly be used as a stick to beat Leeds with, despite the so-called ‘spying’ taking place before the rule was written.

One previously existing rule was mentioned by the EFL, as the primary reason Leeds were fined. I won’t bore you, by posting the entire thing here, but the gist of it is basically

… each Club shall behave towards each other Club and The League with the utmost good faith.

So when opposition players dive for penalties, which change the outcome of a match, is that behaving in the utmost good faith?

Leeds issued a statement, more or less apologising for their terrible behaviour and saying that they accept the punishment.

What fecking choice do they have? While unlikely to actually happen, there was talk of a points deduction. Given the fact Leeds are competing for promotion to the Premier League – worth over £100,000,000 – every point is literally priceless.

The EFL therefore have Leeds over a barrel. “Accept our punishment of £200k and be grateful for it!”. Leeds know that should they appeal the decision and lose, there is the doubtful, but, at the same time, possible, chance of losing points.

Basically, Leeds are the kid at school, who had his dinner money stolen by the playground bully. If the kid fights back, he’ll probably get his face smashed in by the EFL, sorry, school bully.

Leeds may have been polite and diplomatic in their statement. I, however, am not going to be. I have therefore asked Father Jack Hackett to “read” a message to the EFL, on my behalf…

Oh, and while we’re pointing out each others’ flaws, here is a list of things which the EFL and FA haven’t fined football clubs for.

How many of these things are worse than watching another team train, from a public footpath, without breaking any rules (at the time)…

  • Racist chanting
  • Throwing bananas
  • Homophobia
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Diving
  • Time-wasting
  • Paying off agents

Finally, may I wish the EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, the best of luck for the future. This morning, Shaun (who can’t even spell his own name correctly), announced he was leaving the EFL, at the end of the season.

I hear that his colleagues have been very generous with the leaving collection held for him…

LEGAL: Not one penny, I repeat NOT ONE PENNY, from Leeds United’s fine was put towards Shaun Harvey’s leaving gift. This JPEG is a JOKE. However, if you don’t believe me, please issue a punishment by deducting 20 points from my club. I support Norwich City.

Is it just me, or is this mother going a little crazy?

When mum-of-five Tanya Husnu purchased a toy lion for her son Hakan, she didn’t look too closely at it.

However she later wished she had paid more attention, after her three-year-old daughter Aylah, began yelling about the lion’s ‘willy’ in a very crowded area.

Upon closer inspection, the parent, 33, was shocked to discover that her young child’s toy did indeed have a miniature penis underneath the tail.

And now the mum is calling for the toys to be banned as she believes they are ‘inappropriate’.

Surely, even at a young age, a child is old enough to learn that male lions have a penis. The mother should feel lucky – I’ve seen lion genitals on David Attenborough documentaries and they’re much bigger than the one on the toy…

According to the story, the toy was imported from Australia. Considering her daughter is only three-years old, wouldn’t it have been advisable to check the toy upon delivery?

Never mind the meat and two veg, the child may have ended up poking their eye out with a sharp pointed object, or swallowing a small part – and I don’t mean the lion’s willy.

What pointless stats Sky Sports provide us with! Does anyone actually find information like this useful, interesting or worth the ever-increasing subscription fee?

32.7% of viewers found Sky Sports interesting in January 2018, compared to 32.4% in January 2019.

Matt Lucas – the very funny bald one from Little Britain – yesterday tweeted a news article, printed by The Daily Mirror, 27 years ago.

The report – if you can call it that – personally, I would call it poison – focuses on Freddie Mercury’s career and early death.

The text has been written by a certain Joe Haines. Nowadays, I would hope that it would be treated as a hate crime.

Who is Joe Haines, anyway? Looking at the many angry responses to the original tweet, people appear to be unaware who Mr Haines is, what he has done for a career, or even if he is alive or dead.

Thankfully, 27 years on, society has moved on. I wonder if Joe Haines has too? Apparently, he is still living, despite holding views, dating back to before the birth of Christ.

Only this weekend, Altrincham Football Club changed their kit, for one match, in support of LGBT – lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.

I am especially proud of Leeds United, where a group of fans have set up an LGBT group – Marching Out Together – especially for the club, I happen support.

Here are some more photos of Roman’s adventures.

I’ll try to limit how many I post from now on, as I’m aware that all these pictures of a family pet, mean this blog is fast becoming as annoying as Facebook.

At this rate, I’ll be making one line, attention-seeking posts, along the lines of

So upset #FML 🙁

Seriously, don’t worry – I’ll never stoop that low!

One furry, pointy eared dwarf. Plus a rabbit named Roman.

My two loves ❤

It can be a big, scary world out there. Sometimes it feels best to return home.

When it all becomes too much, and you just have to sleep, after a hard day’s exploring.


  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
