Thrilla in Antigua 05 Apr 2007

England lost another game in the Cricket World Cup yesterday but at least they did it in style. I was following the match on the Duckworth Lewis calculator and we were cruising till the three quick wickets went down... then I must admit they really pulled it out of the bag to come so close to winning! Come on England.

Goal line technology... coming soon? 02 Jan 2007

Over 80% of football fans are in favour of it and it's going to be trialed at the 2007 FIFA World Club Championship - so will goal line technology be here to stay? I thought I'd do a bit of research on this and share that here.

Naturally, as most games of football only see an average of 2 or 3 goals, one more or one less makes all the difference. There are times when it's too close to call and, ...

Rugby Sevens World Cup 21 Mar 2005

The Rugby Sevens World Cup in Hong Kong this weekend was awesome. It was nice to see here who Melrose Cup winners the Fijian team credited with their win.

What a result! We gave them a stuffing! It was a Turkey shoot! Okay, okay... no more Turkey jokes. Let's joke about Aussies. I watched the football in an Aussie pub called the Walkabout in Wimbledon and I've never seen so many TVs in one place before. Definitely planning to go back there often, and most definitely when we whip them during the rugby world cup in their own backyard!

English Pride 24 Jun 2002

Even though we're out of the World Cup, we can still restore some English pride because Wimbledon starts today. There's a useful real-time scoreboard on the website if you can't get to a TV. Go Tim!

Down and Out 22 Jun 2002

Have been too disappointed with England being out of the World Cup to write much. Plus I'm actually quite ill... I should be better soon though.

I'm moving down to London on Tues so this website will disappear for a couple of weeks, then hopefully will reappear at www.nimisis.com once a phoneline and ADSL is up and running in my new place . See you then.

It was great to watch Denmark play like they had a plane to catch. Got quite abusive during the match... I called them citizens of a stub of a country, full of Vikings and only worthy of acid rain... Sorry, very embarassed and ashamed now. World Cup fever is taking over!

Bring on Brazil or Belgium.

Don't Cry For Me Batistuta 12 Jun 2002

Not the best England performance I've ever seen but still, we're through, and the icing on the cake is the fact that both France and now Argentina are out. Woo hoo! Coming second in the group may not be all that bad. At least the next match against Denmark won't be in the sweltering heat of the afternoon but the more comfortable cool of the evening.

Check our statistical chances of winning acco...
