Louis van Gaal Must Go

(0) Comments | Posted 25 January 2016 | (10:35)

The worst thing that could have possibly happened to Van Gaal came in the 5-3 defeat to Leicester City last year. As it happened, it was United's best attacking display under him. They were blistering in the first half, and in Angel Di Maria, United had a new hero. They...

Adele, Hello - Me, It's About Time

(0) Comments | Posted 23 October 2015 | (12:56)

Adele's latest single came out today, and as expected, she's cut right through everyone's tough exterior, taken a flashlight to our communal solar plexus and revealed our innermost feelings. She's got such a gift with words. Not the long, extraneous, waffley ones like mine, but her recourse to the simplest,...

When Apple Say Everything's Changed, It Hasn't

(0) Comments | Posted 29 September 2015 | (12:07)

Apple are aware of what people are saying. I've been saying it myself for a couple of years- that their new products are virtually the same as the old ones. New generations come and the differences are subtle, not drastic. I remember the launch of Siri and touch ID. Both...

Threat Level Severe: We CANT Simply Carry On...

What to do when our intelligence agency, MI5, state the terror threat level is severe?

Iain Dale spoke to a member of the public on his drive show on LBC last week, who articulated why he believed we are looking at a generational fight against this particular breed of...

The Real Golden Globes: A Drab Evening Pepped Up by Mother Nature

(0) Comments | Posted 12 January 2015 | (17:08)

Jeremy Renner alluded to it when it was his turn to partake in those cringe-ridden award-presenting duties, with Jennifer Lopez. My mum more than alluded to it, sitting next to me in front of our high definition plasma screen, who's clarity of picture, only served to reinforce our fast-growing assumptions....

A Bitter Man Who Used to Play Football

(4) Comments | Posted 10 October 2014 | (00:00)

I'm a massive Manchester United fan, don't get me wrong, so when I embark on a mission such as this - to intellectually assassinate Roy Keane's post-retirement, whistle blowing, reveal-all, hate-all, sell your soul to the devil to make some easy money, attitude. I am tinged with melancholy.

FAMY: A Brilliant Debut Album

(0) Comments | Posted 11 September 2014 | (13:56)

This week I went to see my friends' band, on the eve of their debut album launch. It was an industry graduation, with them playing inside legendary record shop, Rough Trade (west). I know they are my friends and I sound like a proud mum at parents evening, but this...

The Ultimate Sore Lewser

(0) Comments | Posted 26 May 2014 | (12:43)

Lewis Hamilton finished second in the Monaco Grand Prix last weekend; no doubt a commendable sporting achievement. Yet what really sparked the weekend's excitement was his rivalry with Mercedes teammate, and eventual winner, Nico Rosberg. On the podium, Lewis stood next to Nico, albeit on a lower platform, with a...

The Appalling Treatment of Rio Ferdinand

(4) Comments | Posted 14 May 2014 | (00:00)

As a Manchester United fan, I have had a lot to moan about this season. Though until now, I have kept schtum, not willing to be one of those bandwagon-jumping loonies who bays for blood the minute things go wrong. I have however, been forced to break my silence, after...

Man United Fan: Better The Devil You Know

(1) Comments | Posted 7 April 2014 | (11:31)

As a Man United fan, the end to this inexorable Premier League season is as excruciating as root canal surgery. In many ways I'd prefer to be on a dentist's chair, mouth gaping.

Gary Neville was recently asked who he'd prefer to win the league: Manchester City or Liverpool FC....

The Repulse of Wall Street

(0) Comments | Posted 6 January 2014 | (17:03)

Last night I watched the new Martin Scorsese film, The Wolf of Wall Street. Great though it was, I felt utterly repulsed the longer it went on.

Let me start with the good points. In terms of the films narrative structure, I thought it resembled the great Scarface. A typical...

Social Media and the Mandela Madness

(0) Comments | Posted 16 December 2013 | (15:38)

The week before last, the world we live in bore witness to a tragedy. The loss of a truly great human being. However, enough is enough.

It is not the media who I begrudge for overkilling Mandela's death. It is my own network of Twitter twerps, Facebook fiends and...

I Wouldn't Exist Without Immigration

(6) Comments | Posted 13 November 2013 | (13:38)

Immigration is a subject that polarizes opinion, and rightly so, for there are really obvious pros and cons behind this deeply divisive political discussion. Whatever the answer is, whichever end of the political spectrum you abide to, there are thousands of Brits like me, who have immigration to thank. When...

The Banes of My Existence 3: Having to Buy Something From The Establishment You Only Entered To Use The Lavatory

(0) Comments | Posted 23 October 2013 | (14:33)

When nature calls, it does so without regard to one's whereabouts. This has resulted in two very awkward moments in my life. The first, on golf course in Florida, the other whilst standing on the Great Wall of China.

However, assuming you are in a populated area, the drill...

I Heard a Racist at The Football

Saturday, 3.30 pm, Old Trafford. My team, the great Manchester United is labouring against the ostensibly average West Bromwich Albion. The home fans are becoming unsettled, and rightly so: I've seen better performances in the park on a Sunday afternoon. And then it happened...

Luisa Zissman: Staying on Top

(2) Comments | Posted 7 September 2013 | (16:59)

For those of you unfamiliar with the name Luisa Zissman, you are unfamiliar with the current British celebrity hierarchy. Zissman has entered the party with immediate B/C list status. Her role as runner up on The Apprentice has effectively launched her 'it' girl status. Hardly a day passes without an...

The Banes of My Existence 2: Tissue Shovers

(0) Comments | Posted 26 August 2013 | (16:27)

Pockets. As with any invention, the simplest ones are always the best. Pockets are wells of space that hang from our clothing. Why then I ask, do certain people feel compelled to keep tissues (normally used) tucked up their sleeves?

This sort of behaviour is more prevalent among older...

Over the next few months, I hope to serialize what I dub, The Banes of My Existence with the Huffington Post. Essentially, this being a collection of life's minor nuances, which on paper may appear inoffensive, yet are in reality quite the contrary! I can think of no better place...

Dating for Jewish Men

If you picked up a copy of The Times over the weekend, you may have stumbled upon female columnist Abigail Radnor's account of what it was like to be a young Jewish female on the dating scene. To Abigail, dating and eventually marrying Jewish is a must, notwithstanding the fact...

What to Do With Internet Trolls?

(3) Comments | Posted 5 August 2013 | (16:47)

My relationship to Internet trolls/unidentified pranksters is a colourful one. Rather than receiving abusive tweets (I'm a nobody), I am the lucky subject of a systematic prank-calling initiative. At first I considered it flattery on some level, now its just incredibly obtrusive. Although unperturbed by the cackles of laughter or...
