Sven is in trouble again. The News of the World is publishing Part 2 of their fake interview with him in the Sunday paper where there will be more revelations. The latest of which are said to include alleged comments from Sven that the English Premier League is full of corruption.

Now I dislike Sven. I do not think he is the right man for the job and is untalented tactfully, however I think this trick from The News of the World is totally out of order. An English newspaper should be getting behind the team, and whatever we think of the manager he should be left to get on with the World Cup preparations.

The journalists working for the “newspaper” (if you can call it that) will be the first to congratulate the England team if they win the competition but will also slam Sven if they go out. Do they really think their news stories are going to help?

Sven is going nowhere prior to the World Cup. I’m not saying the paper should respect him or say he fantastic (I certainly won’t be) but they should offer support. If they want to sell newspapers by digging up stories then write one about the Brazil manager or Ronaldinho, cause problems in the Brazilian camp, you don’t shit on your own doorstep.

If you care at all about the England national team (or indeed consider yourself remotely intelligent) I urge you all not to but the News of the World this Sunday. If you find other papers too hard to read there is always The Beano, the writers on that are on a similar literacy level to News of the World journalists.

No time tonight to talk about the Leeds win this afternoon, will blog about it Sunday.

    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.
