As the news about Sven taking the Ivory Coast job breaks, various players react to the story…

Firstly Ivory Coast internationals, Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboué…

We can now travel to Madrid to see what Cristiano Ronaldo, whose Portugal side play the Ivory Coast in the World Cup group stages, thinks of Sven’s appointment.

Forget the war, famine and poverty in Africa – something truly awful has happened to the people of the Ivory Coast…

Someone call Bono and Bob Geldof now – these people need help!

It is quite possibly the most anticipated album since Michael Jackson’s Thriller… The Wurzel’s upcoming covers collection – A Load More Bullocks – the follow up to their excellent Never Mind the Bullocks release.

Here is an excerpt from their official press release

The famous Scrumpy and Western band have put their distinctive ‘west country’ stamp on this fine collection of classic contemporary hits. Take That’s ‘Up All Night’, Nickelback’s ‘Rockstar’, Pulp’s ‘Common People’ and The Stranglers’ ‘Golden Brown’ have all been Wurzelised. Other notable highlights include The Fratelli’s ‘Chelsea Dagger’, Spinal Tap’s ‘Sex Farm’ and the first single – a stunning version of Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Ruby’

I am excited by the proposed songs and am especially looking forward to the Kaiser Chief’s cover. Hopefully they’ll find time to do Cheryl Cole’s Fight for This Love and that song by Journey that is being played to death everywhere. Both of which would sound great with a Somerset twist.

The album is set for release on the 13th June. Seeing as its release will coincide with The World Cup, how about doing a song for the England National Team?

This evening I met up with old acquaintances from the RUH. It was the leaving party for the two RA Agents, Doug and Adrian.

We started the night with a trip to The Ocean Pearl – an ‘all you can eat’ Chinese restaurant, or as I liked to refer to it –  ‘eat as much as you can’.

Being a fussy eater, I stuck mostly to noodles, green beans and chips – followed by vast quantities of ice cream and jelly. As someone pointed out, I could have ordered a roast dinner from a nearby pub and had a similar meal.

I think I got my money’s worth, though, and hopefully cost them more than the £11.50 I paid to dine there.

After consuming nearly the whole restaurant, we went out for a few drinks, which I struggled with due to the large meal earlier!

It’ll probably be a good idea to go to bed now. Despite being home for over an hour, I’ve stayed up messing about on the laptop and chatting on MSN. Bath City are away in Basingstoke tomorrow, so I’ll need sleep before I travel.

After watching local news, I can confirm it is officially the biggest story in the West Country since police found out what Fred West had been up to.

  • 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.
