It's hell, Smudge - I live with a Wolves fan and I have to share the torture and pain every single Saturday... when they almost cross the half-way line... when they should have been awarded a penalty but weren't... when the goal against them was most definitely offside -  it's never ending, I swear!

Every woman that lives with a Wolves fan should be awarded a medal...

wasn't that sweet listening to Jose moan about the Barca diving when his oldies were the best at it (stand up Deco et al) even though it didn't annoy me in the slightest when they stopped the team with the so called greatest fans in the world from winning the Uefa cup. I also want to say well done to The Sons Of William for their 2-2 draw the other night even though they are only the second best team in Scotland - the mighty Beith Juniors are the best (bring on Bathgate in the quarter finals of the OVD)

Yes Werdna he was his usual outspoken self on the subject of Wednesday night's incident. Strangely inconspicuous a couple of weeks earlier when Robben got Pepe Reina sent off. Maybe he didn't see it ?

I'm from St Helens Jayne. The only things it has going for it are the rugby league team and a half decent music venue.

Ah, I once visited your neck of the woods, Rockrebel - it was a good few years ago, though.
