I stumbled across this pic of Michael Jackson in a bookshop recently. I’m not sure what it is but it seems weird to see him in a football shirt. I’m guessing it was fashionable at the time and he had no allegiance to the French club…
Found in ‘Michael Jackson: Before He Was King‘
Apparently, this is a letter written by a young David Beckham written to a mate back home in Manchester. It’s framed and on a wall in a pub in Soho, London.
In it, he talks about having to sprint 8 miles a day and having a bank account with a whopping £230 pounds in it.
Ross Giles is a West Bromwich Albion fan, you can follow him on Twitter here. He’s seen a lot of ups and downs over the past few years, but here, he explains how one man may just be changing the fortunes of his beloved club…
Fans of West Bromwich Albion have been used to a rollercoaster. For the last 11 seasons, they have either been in a promotion or relegation scrap going into the last weeks of the season. Only once have they survived in the Premier League after promotion, the miraculous “Great Escape” in 2004/05, which was little more than a lucky fluke after only winning one of the last seven games and being the best of a very bad bunch. The next season a similar run meant they were relegated with matches to spare. This year looked much the same until the appointment of Roy Hodgson.
International friendly week has become something of a hassle recently. It’s a hassle to clubs, who don’t want their players getting injured on someone else’s time, it’s a hassle to players, who have to spend lots of time travelling and it’s a hassle to fans who have to pay to see these players look uninterested.
So, how can we make them interesting and relevant again? OMB considers some viable and some not so viable options…

I’m counting down the top ten players who have made me laugh and (almost) cry since the start of the Premier League. The list doesn’t only take into account how these players performed on the field, it also takes into account how they performed off the field too… In fifth place, Craig Bellamy.
In total, Craig Bellamy has amassed £45 million pounds in transfer fees. He is the Cardiff born centre-forward who started his career at Norwich and went on to play for six Premier League clubs. Undoubtably a great player, but it will probably be his behavioural skills that most will remember him for when he retires.
