Today's Quote

"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I'm very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that."  (Bill Shankly, Liverpool Football Manager)

Today's Facts

The Scottish Cup tie between Falkirk and Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 1979 was postponed no fewer than 29 times because of bad weather.

A Manchester City fan was banned in 1995 from bringing dead chickens into City’s Maine Road ground. He apparently used to celebrate City's goals by swinging the birds around his head.

In 2004, James Hayter came on as an 84th minute substitute for Bournemouth against Wrexham and scored the fastest Football League hat-trick ever. It took less than 140 seconds.

Today's Joke

Two guys were walking through a cemetery when they saw a tombstone that read:
"Here lies John Sweeney, a good man and a Chelsea fan."

So, one of them asked the other: "When the hell did they start putting two people in one grave?"

That's all for today!
