Kinda, sorta, not quite a links post

I'm kind of hesitant about doing one of those posts full of links to pieces on other websites that I like. The enormous increase of volume which would result on said sites would surely blow up their servers, and I would be faced with the bills. I mean, it's not as if the sickening amount of beautiful, beautiful euro that this blog generates couldn't cover the cost, but I'm afraid I have an army of employees and servants to keep fed and watered here at Sport Is A TV Show Plaza, and there have been dark mutterings lately about "getting the union involved", whatever that means.

So I'm going for a bonsai version of the idea. You're getting a whopping two (2) links, you lucky people.

Firstly, Simon Barnes in The Times. I should say that I only watched the first half of the England-Kazakhstan game - I felt that if I was going to fall asleep I may as well not do it to the sound of Clive Tyldesley's voice. So I may be talking nonsense when I suggest this: if all the goals had been scored in the first half, with the score 5-1 at the break, would people still have been underwhelmed as they seem to have been?

Secondly, from Federation Soccer, a hot stock tip for troubled times.

And for getting this far, a bonus: 'Behave' by Charlotte Hatherley. Nothing to do with sport, it's just great. End communication.

Ah yes, the blinged out life of a self-published football blogger. You've changed man...

I'm sorry, but Fredorrarci is unavailable to reply personally to this comment, as he is currently enjoying an evening of stockbroker wrestling, lighting cigars with one €500 note and rolling up another one for use by his date, Kate Moss. He apologises for the inconvenience. Your comment is valuable to us!
