The one with only three letters

In this week's smaller edition of the Postbag: responsibility; Germans; and eventually reading your history books right.
Supposing Groves does the impossible again and keeps us in the First - where will the money come from to buy players for next season? Admittedly there'll be a lot of players out of contract, but they still need to be paid if we sign them.
Personally I think the Premiership should be held accountable for the massive inflation of transfer fees and wages. They should be fined, collectively, about £50 million. This could then be shared amongst the lower divisions. Except for Bradford who don't deserve any (besides, they'd only use it to pay off refs).

I don't see why Saddam Hussein should be so scared of George Bush's pledge to enforce 1441. Just look at the Germans at the 1998 World Cup. Once Mattias Sammer was injured that system became totally ineffectual.

Pete Green's article has set me thinking. I remember in the days of the terraced Pontoon that the chant you mention was different. Then people used to sing the praises of Jack The Ripper. They still claimed he killed Yorkies though. I was just wondering when the masses realised they were wrong and the chant was changed.
