Is Southwark the Rottenest Borough, Hibs get back to winning ways and Scotland "boot" out Italy in St.Etienne!!


Southwark is once again highlighted in Private Eye's Rotten boroughs and, at this rate, will soon need a rotten Southwark page all to itself!!
The headline is:
"Why Southwark is taking on a CEO who passed a lie detector test to replace the one who failed a breathalyser test " and focused on the fallout from the Walsall Inquiry and the role of the now Southwark Chief Executive ."
Southwark is now apparently the "Baddest" and the "Rottenest" Borough in England simultaneously, a real achievement by this Lib Dem/Tory Coalition who are now destroying the reputation that Southwark has taken over 25 years building up!!!
Hibs beat Kilmarnock comfortably 4-1 and moved into second palce behind Celtic in the SPL.
Clayton Donaldson scored a hat trick including 2 penalties and missed another but really looked like he is finding his form and Antoine -Curier scored again and looks like a very good buy for Collins!!
Saturday evening was nerved-wracking as Scotland played Italy in a winner takes all match in the pouring rain in St. Etienne!! The tension and the weather stopped any chance of a good game of running rugby so it was all down to the kickers and both sided kicked well!
For us it was the fantastic positional kicking of Dan Parks and the perfect goal kicking of Chris Patterson, 6 out of 6 and 16 out of 16 for the World Cup Competition.
Now on to Argentina on Saturday at the Stadt De France with Argentina the strong favourites but with Patterson and Parks playing and kicking like they are then I think that we do have a strong chance of making the Semi Finals, possibly the only Home Nation to do so this year?? Mind you it would also be helpful if Hernandez was injured in training as he is a fantastic player, probably the best all rounder in the World and Argentina are only half the team without him!!
