There’s something not quite right at Barcelona...
A little while ago I met up with Tensnake (aka M...
When tax-free investments were first launched in...
After one of the most riveting, nerve-shredding Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, in which Villa earned a valuable point against Chelsea courtesy of Ciaran Clark’s last-gasp goal, glee was imbued in fans clad in claret and blue.
“Great result, great performance”, wrote one happy Villa follower. “I saw passion!” exclaimed another, after [...]
Cardiff v Leeds, Championship, kick off 7.45pm
Lay under 1.5 goals at 3.7 to one (half a point)
Cardiff manager Dave Jones was particularly upset with his defence after the 3-0 defeat at Bristol City. His team is still fifth, but they have conceded seven in their last two games and are 21st in the six-match form [...]
Tennis events are funny things. There is at least one going on almost every week of the year, in all sorts of far-flung locations, backwaters, and byeways around the world, and, every single one is different.
2010 has seen its fair share of videogame history, from the unveiling of Kinect and Move, first ventures into gesture control from Microsoft and Sony respectively, to the confirmation that Duke Nukem Forever actually lives; but what hammered on the door for attention and stood out from the rest? Without further ado, here are our ten best games of 2010.
Working my way through about our third bag of chocolate eclairs since Santa came to visit, sitting for hours on my somehow extraordinarily magnetic beanbag, laptop open and TV blaring – pretty much heaven for a few hours each day before my boyfriend is back at work and I have to face oncoming exams, essays [...]
There is more stuff on the internet today:
Alastair Campbell, on hype. “Provided he doesn’t fall from a roof, he [Ed Miliband] should get a fair hearing” for his speech in Oldham today. (Photograph of Miliband on roof: Martin Argles, Guardian.)
Paul Corrigan, the Labour former special adviser who does a better job explaining Andrew Lansley’s NHS [...]
The difference a touch of equanimity can achieve certainly paid dividends for the respective teams and finally we have a day where we can say that neither England nor Australia dominated proceedings. But it was the tourists who emerged on top after taking the Aussies from 105-1 to 134-4 as the weather, which resembled that of Scarborough rather than Sydney, took a heavy toll on proceedings.
Ed Balls, on the detention of nine terrorist suspects, talking sense in the midst of a kneejerk magnacartaist meltdown.
What was clear back in 2005 is there were people who were a real threat but couldn’t be charged. And what did you do? And I understand why those decisions were made. I think the jury’s still [...]
Some things on the internet at which I looked today:
Christian Wolmar, on the “steep rale fare rises”,* which he seems to accept will not stop the growth in rail use, especially with petrol so expensive.
Fraser Nelson, on why Lib Dems can save their seats only by joining the Tories: “If you support Cameron’s govt, why [...]
It would take some going to top the performance that England produced in Melbourne last week, but what better way to end an Ashes series than rubbing the hosts noses in the dirt whilst they are on the ground. Aside from the anomaly in Perth, the tourists form has been nothing short of flawless since [...]
