Absolutely correct decision. Now has action been taken against whoever hacked or stole Mackay's phone?

Disaster for Liverpool Football Club:

Don't get me wrong, he has every right to hate Liverpool after we kind of ruined one of the highlights of his career. But he harbours a grudge, and combined with ultimate footballing power than could be a problem.

I see there is (yet) another hatchet job being done again (this time on TV via BBC) against West Ham & The Olympic Stadium regarding tax payers money. If Seb Coe had listened in the first place & had the Olympic stadium built with football in mind to use the stadium after the Olympics then we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place. Years before the Stadium was even built West Ham approached Coe & the Committee about buying the stadium but Coe insisted it was being built for athletics only. Now today West Ham is the only decent option for the stadium to make money, otherwise we would have another white Elephant on our hands. When the bidding process for the stadium was proposed West Ham won & would have to pay for the stadium as they would own it. Tottenham FC & Leyton Orient jointly complained that the bidding process was floored & so the bidding process was re started but this time the winning bid would only rent the stadium. Tottenham FC pulled out from bidding second time round which left West Ham as the only option. To bring the stadium up to football needs certain parts of the stadium had to be done including retractable seating over the running track. If West Ham are only renting why would they be the ones to pay ? Some have said the West Ham's joint owners will sell the club soon after moving in for huge profit but there is a clause in place that states that if the club is sold within the first 10 years of moving in that half of the money raised from West Ham's sale would go to the London owners of the Stadium. Also the rent West Ham is paying (around £3 million a season) has been questioned but West ham have a lease to pay the stadium for the next 99 years & if you work it out West Ham will play roughly 20 matches a season in the stadium. I definitely feel that there is a vendetta against West Ham regarding the Olympic Stadium especially with Man City getting their stadium for free after the commonwealth games & owning it to boot.

The criticism I've seen is against LLDC for not getting better terms. West Ham are getting a deal too favourable, but it's been signed and will be stuck to.

It's the same problem as the selloff of RBS, just at a much lower disadvantage to the taxpayer.

Don't know if you watched the programme but ex Leyton Orient Owner Barry Hearn was moaning big time about how unfair it all is, including West Ham giving away free tickets to Kids & Yet that was what he was going to do with Orient if they won the OS bid. Also West Ham have twice tried to actually buy it (once before the Stadium was even built & the other was when they won the bidding to own it only for Spurs & Orient to complain about unfairness in the bidding process) so you cannot blame them for acting like people that are actually going to rent the building, not buy it.

I cannot put into words how wrong Mourinho is over this club doctor controversy.

Mourinho is turning into such a c***. It's a shame, because I always used to find him entertaining, and used to 'love to hate him'. Now he's just a bitter, boring arsehole. I sort of hope Chelsea can turn things around so that he stops moaning and doesn't get sacked, because when he's on good form, he's a great asset to the Premiership. At the moment though he's just a pathetic little man.

Me: Steve a very hard fought victory this afternoon?
Bruce: your shoes are terrible kid!
Me: errrm sorry Steve forgot to polish them
Bruce: it's alright your haircut is terrific! Carry on.
