Merch request

After the last pod, can we get T-shirts or mugs with “Why are you being such a d!ck?” on them? Thanks. Keep up the great work.

58 Years…

…of self-imposed failure and humiliation on the World Cup and Euro pitches. Forced to hear the ever-present whining and mocking of The Drunken Sot, Always-Prepubescent Maxie, and Arrogant Jonny, the Jacob Rees-Mogg of the Football Press Box. May the Land of Foolish Brexit never cease to fail when looking to stop embarrassing itself on the pitch. Stiff upper lip and love to the family.

Has John Brewin Ever Finished A Thought?
