Allardyce’s broken England dream: dodgy entrapment or just deserts

Sam took the club by the scruff of the neck - just like he did with The Moose

Monsieur Salut writes: Despite far too many decades as a journalist (three of them with The Daily Telegraph), I have serious misgivings about sting operations. They may sometimes uncover genuine malpractice but, among a number of concerns, I wonder who polices the stinger, in this case the Telegraph. This newspaper has after all spent several […]

Sixer’s Everton Sevens: Torn apart by Lukaku

Jake

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half time: “Competed well against a strong Everton team”, which I thought was a pretty fair description of the game up to then.

Certain events mark the progress of the year. For instance you know it’s August Bank holiday when Selfridges show off their Christmas display.

Arsenal and Gunners Town. Sixer returns the compliment.

Jake says: 'made this earlier'

John McCormick writes: Like M Salut, I’m a fan of Arsene Wenger. Like M Salut, I’m a fan of Pete Sixsmith, now a published author.
