RE: Harry Redknapp Is New Tottenham Hotspur Boss

As a Spurs fan, the appointment of 'Arry, doesn't fill me with confidence. I think he knows how to motivate players and get the best out of them, but tactics wise i think he is nieve. I also think the Board of directors at Spurs are also quite cunning aswell. Bring in Redknapp before the transfer wi...

RE: F1 2008: Singapore Grand Prix!

Generally it was a good grand prix and i enjoyed every minute of it.

I did enjoy when the Ferrari Mechanics went running to Mas...

RE: Teacher You Really Remember?

One teacher stands out for me, my A-Level mathmatics teacher Miss Diana Bratten She was an excellent teacher, and uncorrupted by the system that the government and local authorities set. She was 18 months out of teacher training college, and a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the old duff...

I haven't been following the US recovery plan too much, but one thing that stikes is whilst this is taxpayers money, the theory is that the government can afford to spread the pain across 20-30 years.

Most Bumpy Route

One of the most turbulent flights i've ever had was about 15-17 years ago on a Sydney - Honululu - San Francisco flight on a Qantas 747-300, infact i was almost physically sick we were bouncing around that much.
