They're not fat though. They just wear oversized tops so they can shove all the stuff that they are nicking under the ugly blue shirts and hide it. Pikey chavs. ;)

The sudden need for the media to use the term 'team' in front of any available 'grouping'. It seems to have started with international sporting events where for example the British team suddenly became Team GB? It has now morphed and BBC News now happily drone on about Team Cameron!! WTF?

I hate the fact they take so long to open. When I reach my station, I momentarily convince myself the door must be broken and I'm going to have to race to the next carriage to get out in time.

International breaks all the bloody time.

Why not have all the qualifiers in a sort of 6 week summertime period on the summers in between the euros and world cup. Then we'd at least have some football matches to look forward to instead of 3 months of boredom, plus there would be more room for cup replays, less fixture congestion, champions league at weekends etc, and nice places to visit during the summer to watch the national teams and generate more interest in the national side and fa cup, besides the be-all-and-end-all Champions League and PL as now.
