Modern Football Is Rubbish

22 Jan 19

Groovy. Peace,  love and ecstasy. It is the second summer of love. Ian Brown has replaced the Queen as the (un)official (out of our) Head of State. Shaun William Ryder is the poet laureate. People are flowered up. Everybody knows that this is how it feels. Everything has gone a bit…baggy, soft around the edges, […]

Blue Monday – some forgotten marketer's attempt to label the calendar's most ebb of workplace contentment – but it does not reflect the state of modern work in the UK. Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy. According to a survey by the Mental Health Foundation last year, three quarters of us have felt overwhelmed by […]

Side before self every time: A Leeds United Blog

Well it’s been a bit of a week hasn’t it? So much has been said by so many people this week about Leeds United – hmm, let me rephrase that because what I meant to say was that so much bullshit has been spouted by so many tosspots this week. In fact the amount of […]

Through the Bottom of a Glass

As the pompous, expenses fiddling, freeloading shits of Westminster attempt to impose their will on the government and people over Brexit, most ordinary voters will wonder FFS what is happening. ‘Call Me Dave’s’ disastrous referendum asked a simple question and produced a clear answer – a majority want nothing more to do with the failing, […]

How Not 2 Life
