Lord Roby used to spend quite bit of time as a wayward child exploring Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral. This came in rather useful on July 14th.With only two tickets available per graduate Lord Roby had had his nose pushed out.Not having that, I went to the back and found a long lost entrance. Within minutes I was behind the altar and videoing Lady Amy as she graduated. Needless to say only official photographers were allowed so I think it's fair to say you seen it here first! On Bastille Day, 25 years before I had proposed to her mother in Paris. I guess some things are meant to be; others you have to make happen. C'est La Vie...Laaa
The Bastardi! What Bastardi?...Conspiracy! What Conspiracy. The World Cup is getting to the interesting bit and there has been hardly any controversy, few, if any bastardi moments. All in all the refs have kept their distance and missed very little, took no shit and allowed the games to be played in the right spirit. Apart from England's spinleless, clueless, two banks of 5 with no midfield tactics; I think it's been the best world cup I have seen. And in Belgium v USA the best world cup game I have ever seen. The quarters await and bastardi willing I think Columbia are marching all the way to the final. Whoudda thought it? So far it has been like a good book. One you can't put down and don't want to end.
Lord Roby has a bit of free time, so what better way than to comment on the comings and goings of the premier league. Well it looks like it's going to the other shower are going to win it and if they win 14 games on the bounce, amassing a spooky 89 points in the process; then who am I to argue. Apart from having seen some of the best football I have ever seen from the Blues, I have also seen some seriously dodgy refereeing. Mark Clottenburg is undoubtedly a fully paid up member of the Bastardi!! Having not been seen for a number of years, he suddenly turns up in a number of prime, title and FA Cup deciding fixtures. At the Emirates he was 'selected' to ref the FA Cup QF. Even though he had been banned from reffing our games for 6 years and Howard Webb was available. We got denied a blatant pen and the Arse were given a soft one. Same old, same old! Roll -on to Old Trafford. Clott had never given a pen against United there but decided that 3 were justified that day.Roll -on to Man City at Anfield.Title decider. Who turns up again, Clott!! Man Utd at Goodison, who else!! I left when he ignored two footed tackle by Rooney!I don't think we have seen the last of him yet. He will no doubt be 'arbitrating' again before the season is out. But at the end of the day/season the league doesn't lie and 'Chapeau' to the Reds as it looks like they are home and dry. Maybe after 24 years there is some justice after all.
Upper Working Class Evertonian made good.Used to be Working Class.Hates injustice particularly by bent referees and detests bad service but loves life and all that it brings.Carpe Diem from the cradle to the grave and beyond.
