    I just read the judgement. Can sort of understand the logic but...is there anyone who actually believes Terry's story??

    Yeah, we're his sixth club since leaving Rangers. Hopefully he'll find a way to put down some roots having signed a two-year deal. No doubting his ability, but...

    Now watch Guernsey do us 3-0 tonight.
    Yeah agree with that, Ross Allen maybe the guy, wouldn't mind a Barry Corr type, not him though coz he's a ****.

    Looks like we may have an alright squad, and TBH, I'm not too distraught that a lot of the big-time-charlies have left.

    Hope Nichols, Bennett and Frear can come through, and have big seasons.

    Still haven't received my season ticket though
    Do I contradict myself?

    Well Allen has three tonight so I certainly wouldn't say no... could he be the next Charlie Austin?

    I'm trying to figure out whether I want to continue kit sponsorship following two years' worth of David Noble away shirts.

    You could get them back, there won't be a stain on them,

    I was thinking of doing that 31 thingy, fancy owning a player. He'd better be good though.

    I know I shouldn't get caught up in paper-talk...but Ganso to Arsenal is the latest rumour doing the rounds. Really, really hope it's true.

    Only a few Chelsea fans

    Be interesting to see what the FA do as the fact that he said the words wasnt in dispute

    If it was AFL, the player would be forced to undergo counselling and probably undertake community service

    Wouldn't be surprised if Ferdinand got on some trouble as well, for the things he has admitted saying.

    Why is the cost of the trial so great to the taxpayer?

    EDIT: like, they talk about quarter of a million pounds and stuff. Does the taxpayer pay for legal fees or something?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    The Crown Prosection Service is funded by the tax payer so the cost of prosecuting the case comes from the public purse - as Terry won I'm assuming that his costs will largely be recovered from central funds - 250k is more than my guess but if that is what it is then that just makes me angrier, particularly when legal aid is so restricted these days, and I'm expected to spend my working life defending people against allegations that could see them losing their liberty for the sort of remuneration levels that the advocates in the Terry case wouldn't even wipe their fat cat arses for, not that I'm bitter or anything, obviously
