Robbie Fowler in Pizza Express

I received this photo from about:blank‘s Jase a few weeks back, taken in Pizza Express in Cardiff Bay. If you ignore the Ginger Jase in the middle of the frame and instead concentrate on the chap to the left, you’ll notice former Liverpool legend and now Cardiff striker Robbie Fowler, sticking rigorously to his fitness regime of a double mighty meaty with extra cheese.

Actually, I don’t know what he was eating, so I can’t say he was scoffing pizza – but it’s just typical that as soon as I leave Cardiff, God moves there. Had I still been at Black Sheep I’d have been there in Pizza Express and would have met the touch line snorting Fowler myself.

See the way Robbie professionally shields his face from the efforts of our clumsy photographer? Genius.

Scouser’s Keyboard

As Man UTD failed so boringly to win the FA Cup, and with the impending Champions League final this Wednesday featuring Liverpool, it was inevitable there’d be a little Manc humour headed my way this week.

This little gem came from my own girlfriend! Bloody Mancs.

Funny though, the Scouser’s keyboard:

FA Cup Final

I’d just like to lend my support to Chelski in today’s FA Cup Final, the first at the new Wembley.

I don’t particularly like Chelski, but can’t stand Man UTD, so come on you blues. Living in Manc land I get some serious gloating material should Chelski win today.

Of course the real deal is Wednesday night when Liverpool go for their 6th European Cup. Beat that United!

Sky TV lose out on my money

It’s the last day of the football season and I’m sat here listening to it on the radio. Why? Because I’ve cancelled Sky… why? Because they’re money grabbing bastards who think more about getting new customers than looking after the ones they already have.

I’ve been with Sky for over 4 years, and wanted to upgrade to Sky +. Not an unreasonable request eh? Seems for me to do that they wanted me to pay DOUBLE what my next door neighbour would pay as he doesn’t have Sky.

How is that for loyalty to your customers.

Naturally I said screw that, and cancelled the bloody thing. They then had the cheek to phone up and ask why I’d cancelled, and offered me all maner of shite in order to resubscribe, including Sky + for free.

I couldn’t believe it, naturally I said no. If they want to rip off their existing customers that’s up to them, but I’m not going to rejoin a company that makes it its policy to do just that.

So here I am, listening to the last day of the Premier League season on Five Live.

Come on Robbie Fowler!
