Boro 4-2 Steaua
Congratulations to the n*ppy r*ppers in their fantastic victory against Steaua. To have such great comebacks in 2 successive rounds of a european competition is incredible.

In the top right corner of the page I have linked to is an audio link of the commentary of the final goal from Radio Cleveland. I hdon't know how to link to it directly. It is one of the funniest commentaries I have heard.

Football chairman's wages
"to earn the £552,954 and £495,951 [Freddy Shepherd and Douglas Hall] were paid, respectively, in 2005, they would normally be running a company with a turnover of £600m, rather than the £90.2m Newcastle made from television, ticket sales, merchandising and catering to the hearty and loyal appetites of the Toon Army."

Loan companies

This bloke's rant is brilliant.
"The key results of my research are that there are at least five loan companies advertising nationally across the UK that have absolutely no compunction (in principal) to kicking some elderly disabled woman out on the street because her [dim]witt son has re-mortgaged the family jewels to spend thousands visiting some Eastern European prozzie".

It is about helping you get answers to this difficult question.

Dread at the Controls

@ The Sage Saturday 13 May 8:00 pm
"Mikey Dread, known as The Dread at the Controls, is one of the most influential performers and innovators in reggae music. As well as a revered performer and broadcaster, he is a producer of great expertise, who has worked with artists including Seal, UB40, Japanese rock band Anarchy, Earl 16 and Edi Fitzroy, plus perhaps most notably touring with and producing The Clash. His latest work is regarded by many as his best to date, and well worth waiting for."
