Oakwell's outstanding Odejayi...

Well, outstanding whole team really [Barnsley FC] Unbelievable...truly. Not since 1912 have Barnsley reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup - they went on to win it that year. Having beaten Liverpool to reach the quarter finals I don't think anyone gave them much hope...I was moaning that Chelsea have got any easy ride to a piece of silverware this year...how I laughed (sorry Sarnia)!!

"A second-half header from Kayode Odejayi was enough to dump Chelsea out of the FA Cup and take Championship Barnsley into the semi-finals."

Of course I mention all this because I'm trying to forget other 'worse news': "England pay price for lack of ambition" [Times]. I'll be perfectly honest: the only things I have to say are well done Scotland and well done JW for at least gaining something today. Other than that you were all fucking crap.

"Jonny Wilkinson today stands alone as the leading scorer in Test rugby after kicking a penalty in England's RBS 6 Nations match in Scotland."

That's the good bit; if I were the coach all XV would be dropped for the Ireland game.

I thought the match against Scotland was as low as English sport would get, then I watched the test match from Hamilton and it got worse.

I have to say Wilkinson must be dropped, what is the point adding to the record when you are part of the problem, his kicking from hand yesterday was dreadful. Well done Scotland, played ugly and won.

And well done to the Welsh RFU for appointing Warren and Sean, two of sports genuine winners.

I agree - I hope Englishmen can see fit to cheer on the Welsh to a Grand Slam.

I'm also glad I don't follow cricket! at least our athletes are putting up a good show. Just one gold and we'd be third!

LOL! Hello Sarnia...Bloody wigan!

I have the sinking feeling that the 0 - 0 vs Wigan will hand Manure the league.
