Sports: Football

  • From The Times, the Christmas message from the Lithuanian majority shareholder of Scottish team, Heart Of Midlothian:
    "...there are also those — be they agents, journalists, jealous hangers-on or other 'wunderkind' — who seek to ruin all that is good about the game. But it is the devil that is driving them forward, and they are not going to stop. All that will remain for me is to step aside and bid them farewell on their road to hell."

  • That's a funny name for a football club, isn't it? Named after the Walter Scott novel (which you can read online)?
  • There is a Welsh team called Airbus UK. Their grounds features retractable floodlights because they're beside a runway.
