Happy as a Pig in Muck

I've had two weeks of absolute mither, but just received some fantastic news. The hassle has been worth it, but more of that anon.

Me and my dad have also got our tickets for the play-off final, FC United against Bradford Park Avenue on Sunday. Also I'll be joining him and some friends for a day of cricket and a fundraising lunch at Old Trafford tomorrow. So at the moment I'm as happy as a pig in muck.

I've put this clip on here before but it is from probably the finest concert I ever attended and felt like popping it up again. Seems five minutes ago since Mrs B and yours truly were part of this happy throng at Old Trafford, but it was actually 2004. By the way Morrissey, you were talking crap about the Falkland Islands. It's up to the Falkland Islanders to decide their future, not the UK and certainly not Argentina. Stick to music.

Glad you got all that sorted Gregg. Hope the Magpies lost to the team that eventually went up!!

As for Mozzer, well I remember this period of time well enough. People were just so glad to see him making music again and 'Everyday is Like Sunday' probably represents his 'get the lighter out' moment.

Sadly, he's become a bit of an arsehole on quite a few issues - the strange defamation case against NME over something they'd written four years earlier, a pathological hatred of anyone who doesn't subscribe to his vegi lifestyle, the tasteless and uncalled for remarks about Brehvik and then the Falklands.

He of course remains correct about the monarchy (glorified welfare scroungers), but then you're bound to agree with most people every once in a while!!

The music has mainly been crap since 1995 and he should call it a day IMO.
