Leonardo, The World Cup and Boring Playlist News

24 May 06


I’m at work at the moment. Been working hard so I thought I’d take a few minutes off to write on this again. Haven’t done it for a couple of weeks. I hope you’re all well. Still no-one’s left a comment on this yet, I’m beginning to think that it’s broken or something! Either that or I’m unpopular, or both. Oh I don’t know!

Off to see the Da Vinci Code film tonight at the flicks. Hope it’s good. It’s not got the best reviews but that’s probably cos the book’s good or something. Not read it. Emma’s got a copy but she’s not started reading it yet. Going for a bite to eat in the pub before the film and that’s always good.

16 days to the World Cup now! Not long to go. I’m looking forward to the festival of football that’s fast approaching. Time’s going so quickly nowadays. There are people discussing what we should do with the offside rule on talkSport. We should leave it how it is I think. At least it contains the same amount of confusion for us all at the moment! I understood offised a few years ago, and for about 15 years before that, so why did they change it! The only change they should do is to change it back to a rule we all knew. None of this active position, phases crap.

Playlist! Yes I have iTunes at work and it lets me know the most played tracks on my reasonable library of songs I have here. Here’s the top 5 with the amount of times played after:

1. Mattafix – Big City Life: 6
2. A – Die Tonight: 4
3. Coldplay – The Hardest Part: 4
4. Kaiser Chiefs – Na Na Na Na Naa: 4
5. Shpongle – And The Day Turned To Fright (Eat Static Remix): 4

It’s all on random so it means nothing really. Just something to fill up an otherwise quite small post.

Right that’s enough from me. Back to work for half an hour!




Keano! There’s only one Keano!

Good afternoon everybody.

I’m having my lunch here at work and listening to the radio while doing a job I’m loving. It’s great here, I get to sit down (unlike any other job I’ve ever done) and play about with graphics, layouts and content all day. Nice!

Went to Roy Keane’s testimonial last night. Was a blinder. Read about it here and here(eek!). Those Celtic fans are quite scary you know. They make us United fans look civilised, and that’s saying something.

Talking about football. What’s Sven on about with that England squad. Theo Walcott?! He’s 17, he can’t drive, drink, bet, get married (without permission), get into the Arsenal first team, play in his preferred position for their reserves and also, he shouldn’t be going to the world cup. He’s just not ready. He’s never played in the Premiership, only played in the Championship 23 times (10 a sub) scoring 5 goals. That’s not a what a striker should be like in a squad that’s supposed to have a chance of winning the world’s premier sporting contest. I have no doubt whatsoever that he’s going to be a spectacularly good player with that pace of his and his finishing (from what I’ve seen), injury permitting but until he’s good enough to be in the England squad, he’s shouldn’t be there. I’m really hoping that I have to eat my word here with him scoring 3 in the final against Germany and winning the golden boot but I just can’t see it happening. And what’s worse is that Sven’s left out a player who’s scored 22 goals in all competitions whilst playing for a mid-table side (that’s Darren Bent of Charlton in case you’re wondering). It doesn’t make sense.

Before I get back to work, I want to tell you about a guy called Gary McKinnon (1) (2). He’s probably going to be extradited to America to face terrorism charges. It’s complete and utter nonsense and you can go here to support him.

Right, now I’ve got that off of my chest I’m off to do some work.

Keep well 🙂
