    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Aye. Most EPL franchises are too objectionable to stick with on any fixed basis, might as well be nationally fickle.

    The bottom half is perfectly in order of how annoying i find their respective fans
    Premiership football

    Man Utd
    Sunderland
    Aston Villa
    Hull
    West Brom
    Blackburn
    Stoke
    Wigan
    Middlesborough
    Portsmouth
    Fulham
    Everton
    Bolton
    West Ham
    Tottenham
    Man City
    Arsenal
    Newcastle
    Chelsea
    Liverpool

    Factors include how unbearable their fans are, how much i like their players and (often moreso) manager and just plain unwarranted preference. It changes from time to time though. When Reid was in charge Sunderland would've been well down at the bottom.

    United

    (much of a muchness)

    Chelsea
    Bolton
    City
    Liverpool

    Can't be arsed to sort much of a muchness out, because there's too many of them, but Sunderland are on the higher end (due to Keano), as are Villa, and sides like West Ham are on the lower end.

    If you were to include the Dirties, they'd be between City and Liverpool, additionally I also have a soft spot for Barcelona, simply because they've always played such good football.
