Carnival Week: Bah Humbug

West country carnivals may well be a great and popular local tradition but their seeming reliance on another great local tradition - inept local government planning and traffic control - sticks in my craw somewhat. Everywhere quite needlessly grinds to a halt as the council choose to use absolutely the least sane spots to park the various carnival floats and close roads with a seemingly wilful intent to make life as difficult as possible for local residents and workers.

Congratulations to the Scum for helping make our defeat at Upton Park somewhat less disastrous than it might have been. Liverpool next (if you're not counting the League Cup, and most people don't, though I have to say I always enjoy it) - surely we can beat a team that seems hell-bent on losing at every opportunity?

What? no comments on the handbags at Upton Park?

Well I'm rather late with getting anything posted about Sunday's game so I reckon anything worth saying about the handbags incident (and a whole lot that wasn't worth saying) has already been said. It's a shame that a couple of people reacting with a bit of honest passion has been blown out of all proportion whilst Chelski's latest outburst against officialdom seems to be being ignored. Talk about Arsenal losing without good grace...
