Late to the show tonight, but a hearty thanks to the full UF crew for this site's existence...class is permanent...

I am thankful for UF.

The 6+5 rule smacks of xenophobia and seeks to curb the relentless drive of the market. Discuss.

Andrew said...

A point-counterpoint on the implementation of 6+5 is so necessary.

What, no FA Cup live blog?

Love watching semi-pro minnows cupset higher level teams...thank you to the Brentford keeper for making it possible in today's game...

"The slog sweep, which saw him smash consecutive sixes off the spinner to bring up his half-century, was his downfall with Symonds catching him at deep mid-wicket."

I got this from the Barrow-Brentford post-match round-up. (Hyphen, anyone?) DATS NAWT SACKAH.

In fact, I don't know what the hell it is.
