So according to The Sunday Mirror, England manager Sven Goran Eriksson is wanted by Manchester United chairman Malcolm Glazer.

We had a similar story two years ago with Roman Abramovich trying to get him for Chelsea. Back then Sven was well liked by both the fans and The FA. How things have changed, I think if Mr. Glazer asked The FA if they could take Sven to Old Trafford they would bite his arm off. All English football fans would rejoice, apart from Manchester United supporters that is! :o)

On the topic of England managers I watched the first episode of the comedy series Mike Bassett, a spin off from the very funny 2001 movie. TV spin offs of films are normally terrible disasters so I was not expecting too much from this one, I was however pleasantly surprised, The series, like the film was very amusing and was packed full of silly, footy related humour.

It is set a few years on from the film, Bassett was sacked by England after failing to qualify for Euro 2004 “Everyone knows there’s no easy games at international level and Lichtenstein are no exception to that”. After many other jobs, including Newcastle United, who he relegated twice he is appointed by his childhood team Wirral County.

Overall, very funny and very, very silly. Looking forward to next weeks episode.

Won’t mention the Leeds game too much. A 0-0 draw with Watford. OK, Watford are doing well but by all accounts it was a dire game! Blackwell out.

    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.
