Being more transparent….

AP’er commented on my last post that “It would be more interesting if you updated your blog at regular intervals rather than simply when you have a good week. Shame could be decent if you were more transparent”..The definition of which is “open,frank,candid”. Im not entirely sure what constitutes “regular intervals’ and having just become a father to not one but two, time consuming, puking, crying and  crapping little beauties its a little difficult to get the time to post on here whether the news is good or bad. However the comment did make me realise that some of my record keeping was a bit flaky (of the home made […]

Mastered

A disappointing Masters from a viewing and betting standpoint as Jordan Speith produced a real master class in short game skills to comfortably hold off the challenge of Justin Rose. One particular moment of brilliance that I thought summed it up was on the 18th on Saturday when he found himself out of position at the back of the green.

I also wonder if should also carry on being critical of his tipping ability as it certainly didn’t do me any harm this week!

Andrew Sullivan started the last day 7 shots behind Charl Schwartzel going into the final day  and made up that difference to force a play off which he […]

gone

So the inevitable happened and Im sat here watching Sky Sports News going into complete overdrive regarding David Moyes sacking but as previously stated here it was clear he was massively out of his depth and I actually feel quite sorry for him. I’ve gone on record previously as saying  that I believe he was “sold a pup” by Sir Alex Ferguson  in terms of an aging squad that had been chronically under-invested in over the last 5 years and I’ll stand by that statement. There was a telling statistic which was trotted out on his 50th game in charge, in that time he had picked 50 different teams. He […]
