As the central bankers meet in Wyoming, I wonder if a select few are comparing notes on their predictions for the new European soccer season. If FIFA were a bunch of central bankers we would have got rid of the offside rule after a few 0-0 games.


What great results from Karbukspor and Swansea. They beat St. Etienne ans Man Utd to hold on to their lineal titles. Nothing like title game to get the underdogs fighting.

Check Preston NE logo below; a sheep holding a cross; Christopher Hitchens would have been proud.
