My first budgerigar was called Danny. After Danny Blanchflower.

(Just thought I'd mention it while the subject of budgerigar names and football have come together on the same thread. I may never get such an opportunity again.)

Anyway with Sutton United being promoted to the football league for the first time in their 123 year history and Chelsea winning the Champions League I can't expect England to win too.

Incidentally I passed Sutton's ground today and saw where the artificial pitch was being dug up by bulldozers. A sad sight. Such a shame for all those lower league teams struggling to make ends meet should be able to invest in them as real money making schemes.

I'm surprised you didn't grab a bit - that brown and orange abstract print carpet has been down in your lounge since 1978!

I was that flighty woman you picked up in the Hand and Racquet last Friday. Didn't you wonder why you didn't get anywhere with me - how I kept refusing your advances, you dirty boy. :$

To mark our first season in the Football League Sutton United are introducing a third kit which apparently is an EFL requirement.

It's black with yellow trim but it also has the names of all of last season's Season Ticket holders in charcoal on the back. Obviously very small but I know I'm on there.

If I'd invested £500 in the new Plough Lane stadium, I could have had my name on a urinal.

A part of my front lawn is turf from the Huddersfield town pitch from before they moved to a new stadium.
£20 for a square foot.

I understand they're holding a raffle for the new Tottenham manager's job.

Nice. Never sat in one of the old seats. It was always a long splintery bench with the number painted on it and a painted white line to define your bit. Ok unless you got sat next to a fat bastard who's arse went over both sides.
