It’s a special day today, is proud to award French President Jacques Chirac with the ‘Irony Trophy of 2005’. This is following his comments on the quality of British food ahead of the decision for which country will host the Olympics in 2012.

Chirac was reported in saying (about Britain) “We can’t trust people who have such bad food. After Finland, it’s the country with the worst food” Hahaha! This is coming from the man who is in charge of a country who considers snails and frogs a delicacy!

What you get if you “Go Large” in a French restaurant

There has been a lot of banter between Britain and France over this whole Olympics bid including Britain reportedly saying said the stadium in Paris was shit. For those who care (and to be honest, I don’t) the decision will be made tomorrow, then hopefully all this childish behaviour can be put to rest, at least until Fifa start the bids for World Cup 2014.

Moving onto football, “Mr. Liverpool” Steven Gerrard has told his so-called beloved club that he wants to leave them, probably for Chelsea or Real Madrid. He is just like Alan Smith and Wayne Rooney. Says he loves his home town club but as soon as something better comes along, sticks two fingers up and pisses off.

Distant memories for Liverpool fans

In some ways I can see why Gerrard wants to leave. You only get to play at the top level for so many years and when your one of the greatest footballers in the world you want to play for one of the greatest clubs.

What I think is wrong however, is the way players like Gerrard go on about how they love their club and will never leave and then weeks later have a total change of heart. You cannot treat the fans that way.

Still, as an England fan and an admirer of Gerrard I think the move is a good thing for his career and the national team and wish him well wherever he goes (unless its to Man U).

  • 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.
