    In my eyes, you play to be in the 11. Ok you might end up with a number outside that at first, but your aim is to be considered one of your teams top 11 players and should covet one of those numbers, and the history that goes with it. Fair enough players such as Scholes who came through the ranks, got handed 18 and decided to keep it for his career, but signing for a club and asking for such a stupid number should be banned
    Not sure about Antonini, but Shevchenko and Flamini both have their respective numbers as that is the year they were born in, and that is the reason why Ronaldinho has the number 80, as he was born in 1980. Shevchenko did want his old no. 7 back, but Pato did not want to give it up. Sounds pretty trival though.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    And Seedorf wouldn't give up Ronaldihno's traditional number (11 I think).

    my account logs out after 5mins of non activity, so many great, insightful, though provoking and perhaps life changing posts lost, never to be repeated again in such a brilliant fashion

    Which happened a few days ago, but did any newspaper give a **** about Wendy Richards. Is it because she spent 30 years as a staple part of TV? Is it because she wasnt on Big Brother. Is it because she showed enough self respect in her final days not to flog everything about her life, including her wedding video ffs?

    Sorry your ill Jade, truely. But now **** off out of the news, because your NOT newsworthy.

    But at least there's some redeeming features to remember. If, for one day, some people want to get nostalgic about his outrageous skills and witty remarks then I guess they can. Jady Goody has no redeeming features. She's abnormally stupid, ignorant, attention-seeking and racist. But I get dirty looks for calling a **** a **** because she's about to croak. ****, several people have died in the time it took me to write this post and the chances are that not one of them was as much as a prick as Jade Goody. ****ing joke.

In today's world were thousands are being killed in dubiously moral wars and millions in famine are we concerning ourselves more with the likes of Jade Goody? What has she achieved? Who has she helped? What has she left behind? The answer to these questions should be obvious yet to the growing majority in the media and society they believe her to be an important aspect of modern culture, enough so to be put on the front page of not just the tabloids, yet the mid-markets and even the broadsheets. Yet most people simply aren't smart enough to ask questions.

    Today in study plus (a lesson which I disagree with all together seeing as it is only an excuse to keep the rest of the students occupied whilst the aim-higher group are being manipulated into picking universities, a group which I refused to take part in despite being offered) We were given a lesson on how the media use writing techniques to display the "News" We were given a news article. Was it about the Pakistani terrorist attack? Perhaps an article on the current financial downturn? The War on terror? Gordon Brown's visit to the white house to discuss the future of Britain and America? No It was a group of articles on Jade Goody's struggle with cancer, Now personally I am disgraced that a school supposedly responsible for teaching hundreds of young and impressionable minds and preparing them for adult life have taken part in clouding there minds with this mindless drivel, I only hope you Mr. ****** look into the lesson which Miss ****** has arranged and sanctioned, thank you for reading.

    nah, possibly the saviour, if we can work out a way to harness renewable energy and creat abundance, surely the standard of living across the world could improve! The human race doesn't give a **** about the individual in the long run, capitalism at it's most uneqaul may just be the means to a better end in the future.

    Isn't greed just a made up abstract concept anyway, that the 'herd' can manipulate to justify their own situation as being 'better' or more 'moral' than another? Whilst equality is an important part of a society, if gained fairly (hmm) why should one feel guilty for accumulation of wealth? Especially if this average standard is determined by environment, different standards in an African town than Luxembourg for example.

    The Hard of Hearing

    Not as a group, but the wuck fits who completely misunderstand the dynamic of their condition and SHOUT REALLY LOUDLY from inches away. It's like being assailed by a slow-witted fog horn with bad breath.

    See, geniuses I can hear. Get a hearing aid that works & STFU, eh?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
