There are certain side effects to my disability which rarely if ever make it into discourse here. Today, however, will be an exception. And, yes, it will be a case of going from the frying pan into the fire. But it will be brief and reason for doing so will become obvious as this particular… Read More One book to absolutely not judge by the cover
Meath… 0-12 Donegal… 1-10 Why or how Milwall ever came up with their infamous “We are Milwall, nobody likes us, we don’t care” chant is beyond me. It’s not as if they were ever any good.
