Joe Royle to Quit

You have to feel a bit sorry for THE REAL LATICS at the moment. A couple of months ago they were riding high in League One, then there was the fracas on a night out, then John Sheridan was sacked and now interim manager and Oldham Athletic legend Joe Royle has announced he WILL be leaving at the end of the season and the REAL LATICS will still be in League One next season.

I will still be here A REAL LATIC FROM THE SOUTH.

Who do you fancy for the final?

Two Sides to Every Argument

Two sides to every argument

The radio host 'that tried to be like Jeremy Kyle' responds to his radio show 'lambasting' of Frank Lampard.

Watch it and watch him squirm in his chair for nearly 8 minutes.

What Would You Do, What Would You Say......

.... when you get 'slagged off' live on the radio.

Listen to Frank Lampard's reply to a London Radio Broadcaster.

In the UK press today, Frank's ex Elen Rives claimed that Frank has shoved her and their children into a mediocre flat down the road from their 'marital' home after their split last November.

Paul Scholes 600 Up

Last night (Wednesday), Paul Scholes made his 600th appearance for ManUre in their victory against Portsmouth which puts them clear of Liverpool again in the race for the Premiership title.

If you didn't know, Paul Scholes is Oldham born and bred and he is a serious REAL LATIC fan. When he can, he gets to Boundary Park to watch THE REAL LATICS play and I have been told on and off that when Paul finally decides to hang his boots up at Old Trafford, he wants to play for his hometown club for a season or two.

If ManUre win the title for the third successive season, could Mr Scholes be playing in the Blue of THE REAL LATICS next season?

Shocking Berbatov Penalty

See for yourself. £30m, £100,000 per week - SHOCKING. They are not happy in ManURE land.

30th May the FA Cup Final will be between Chelsea and Everton. I bet the FA do not like that.

Atrocious and Disgraceful

The pitch at Wembley today was a disgrace. Both sets of players were slipping and sliding all over the place and the pitch cut up very very easily.

Chelsea won 2-1.

Who will they play in SIX weeks time. ManUre and Everton play tomorrow (Sunday) in the 2nd Semi-Final

FA Cup Semi-Final Weekend

Both games are being played at Wembley.

First up is Chelsea v Arsenal on Saturday then on Sunday its ManUre v Everton.

For me the FA Cup Final is a Wembley occasion, not an occasion for the semi-finals.

Just goes to show how much the FA need the money to pay for Wembley Stadium.

The Downside of Last Night........

We still haven't got normal breathing patterns back after last night's classic, but Chelsea put on sale today, tickets for the home game against Barcelona which isn't due to be played until 6th May.

Today I received my season ticket renewal for next season and it is only the middle of April.

Talk about bringing you back to earth with a BUMP!!

I Know One Foxy Lady.........

I know of one Foxy Lady who will be dancing round her living room tonight after this result:


Not only does it mean that her beloved Leicester City are on the verge of promotion back to the Championship, but they could be taking the League One title with them.
