Meat Men Facing the Chop

Yes, the end is nigh for The Fighting Cock’s adopted southern African team, Botswana Meat Commission FC. As the name suggests, the team is backed by the Botswana Meat Commission, a state-owned company that oversees the country’s beef industry. Unfortunately, the Commission is in financial meltdown and is the subject of a parliamentary inquiry where, like Jack Wilshere in a fighter jet, the accusations are flying thick and fast. Charges include corruption, mismanagement, racial discrimination and embezzlement. Witnesses including BMC insiders and former president of Botswana Sir Ketumile Masire have given evidence to the select committee. A picture is emerging... Read more »

Why City/Chelsea winning makes me a proud Spurs fan

The email read out in episode 44 of the podcast. Alright Gents. Lots of talk about scum/bluscum reactions to Saturday’s tragedy. Gooner mates have been fine, actually. Sympathetic even, an acknowledgment of the sheer cruelty and injustice of it all. Cheer for City and you might as well cheer the scarcity of oil that’s driving us towards geopolitical meltdown, unjust wars and keeps the boot on the throat of hardworking, decent people. Cheer for bluescum and you might as well cheer the impoverishment of the Siberian peoples and continuing corruption of a major international country. Cheering the playthings, whims and...

Life as a Football Manager: Prologue

A Football League Trophy runners-up medal, a League 2 Playoff final runners-up medal, and voted 2nd in the League 2 Player of the Year competition. I was always the bridesmaid, and never the bride, but to be honest, it suited me. Expectations were always my biggest downfall, and experiencing gradual success, for it only to be punctured at the last moment has an allure, a fetishised excitement almost. I was no great shakes, but somewhat of a cult hero in my local town. I was club captain, and consistently scored and created goals as we climbed from the non-leagues to... Read more »

Project Tattoo Chicago Dan’s Arse

[progress id=1938] Target reached! Thank you! Hello one and all. We’ve got another appeal. Now we know we’ve asked for money before, and we’re very grateful for everything that has been donated so far this season. There was the Botswana Christmas Appeal. And there was the drum that the FC forumites clubbed together to sort for the Ultras event. And lets not forget that we raised over £600 for Movember last year. However this appeal is slightly different. We need a new mic to record the show. What we use currently, although sounds alright, isn’t fit for purpose. Plus it’s... Read more »
