Guardian on Baggies v Blues
And The Independent
Telegraph. More from the Telegraph
The Times
So far I have read that the ref, West Broms Johnson, and Blues own Darryl Powell were responsible for giving Robbie Savage a fat lip. Perhaps they all had a go.

Thanks to the elusive Flavio on one of the Blues message boards for alerting us to the fact that Portishead singer Beth Gibbons has a solo album out at the end of the month. There are some very measly 30 second sound clips on Gibbons site, it all sounds very impressive.

Some new Morrisey songs

It was a bit much last week when the FA placed themselves firmly on the moral high ground following some racist chants against black England players in Bratislava. That they should suggest the violence was caused by it was laughable. I really cannot see that the same peole who will strut around Istanbul causing great offence with their culturally insensitive antics and chanting such witty ditties as "I'd rather be a Paki than a Turk" and moronically and endlessly chanting " No surrender to the IRA " have suddenly become benevolent defenders of our multi cultural society. Several articles follow.

Thanks to this Babeliser, I can now say "my boss is an old cowbag" in several languages. It is a very cool site which I recommend highly. Type a phrase in and it translates it into French, German, Italian, and Portugese, then back to English from those languages. The final phrase rarely bares any resemblance to the initial one.

Smart bombs, civilian deaths.
