I am a Chelsea fan born in Newcastle on Tyne and living in New Zealand since 1966.I have supported Chelsea from the age of 8 and watched the relegations and promotions right through.My first hero was Bobby Tambling and I scored many goals visualising I was him.More recently I see Lampard as the complete package and a terrific role model for the next generation of players.I cannot be accused of jumping onto the bandwagon when they became Chelski.
Tennis is another sport which I immerse myself into, yet never played other than socially.Andre Agassi took my breathe away from early on in his career .He turned out to be a star winning 8 slams and an Olympic gold medal--the complete set of titles.His endurance and sportsmanship are legendary.
More recently Rafael Nadal has interested me and his tenacity is second to none.When he gets that serve fireing he will be devastatingly good.Mentally he has got it sorted which is a worry for Federer and others.My only worry is that his body will go the distance.
My profession is a boatbuilder by trade and I have been renovating houses in recent years as well.I sell holidays,we own a holiday home at Lake Tarawera which is the best holiday destination on the planet.Take a virtual holiday on our website www.holidaylaketarawera.co.nz We have owned the property for 4 years now and we have had guests from all over the world now.It has foosball,table tennis ,air hockey,Kayaks ,boat ,woodfired pizza oven,basketball ,the very best beds,sky tv 2x,LCD tv ,views to die for and a drive in depwater boatshed.We would love to help you plan you holidays and land a trophy trout.
Hey mate.. Have a look if you fancy it..
Hey, you keeping up on my articles? Check out my latest, and my recent ones. Been writing a lot!
The John Terry allegations have been well documented now, and in the latest Great Debate article I ask a lot of questions surrounding it, mainly "has it damaged England's World Cup hopes?" I think it has, but not for the reasons you might expect...
Also, Was Capello right to strip Terry of the captaincy? Is Ferdinand the right man to replace him? and what are your overriding thoughts on the whole farce?
Let your opinion be known!
As it's a new year, and a new decade for that matter, I thought it was time to shake up the old, stale UWCC articles, so have a gander at the new look one!
It's now a mixture of match report and prediction competition, as well as incorporating video highlights and league and form information into the article, so even if you don't know too much about Serie A, then you can still make an educated guess at the next result!
This match in particular was a cracker with two injury time goals!
Could you have a look and tell me what you think please?
P.S Don't forget to vote on the poll!
It's a tiny bit late as it took longer than expected to write it, but my review of 2009 is finally here! Last year's one won the AOTD award and hopefully I've done enough on this one to equal that feat, but I'll leave you to be the judge of that!
With 25 great moments from 12 different sports, and with everyone from Barcelona to France, the Yankees to the Lakers, and Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods there is something for everyone in this slideshow, plus a ranked top ten as the final slide!
If you get a chance would you mind checking it out? Cheers!
I need people to read this article, I spent too long working on it, and worked too hard, for people not to read it.
If you have time may you give it a read please.
Arsenal don't have anything to worry about. Are we in denial?
Have a look,
Following up yesterday's great debate is the one I've been waiting to write for a long time, and the one I think may be the best debate yet and a must-read for any football fan! Should video technology be introduced into football? Would doing so take away from the 'magic' that makes the game so great? And would it help or hinder the referees? Have your say in the Great Debate!
After what is being called 'the greatest injustice in sport', the question is, what on earth is FIFA doing?
Have a look
I've started a bit of a column, here's the first, The Bottom Corner, paying tribute to a real legend.
Be sure to have a look at it.
