With Rovers out the cup we get behind PRESTON!

Nugent comes back to Deepdale.
Preston North End get a home draw in the 5th round of the FA Cup with former PNE star David Nugent's Pommy on his way back to the north west to play.
With Blackburn, Burnley and Blackpool already wacthing from afar our support falls behind the North End.
Can they really be the first none-premership club to get to the final since Millwall? After beating Premership Derby County in the last round. Who Knows.


Say Goodbye to the BBC Bus, as Last Friday I drove it to Manchester and droped it off at the BBC on Oxford road for the last time.

Thanks for the good times!!!!

The BBC and The Unions agree.

Well it's a start. The BBC and the Joint unions have started to agree. This May safeguard my job, safeguard the quality of BBC output and safeguard trust in a BBC which is being lead from one disaster to another. (Blue Peter ect.)

The BBC had a very bad 2007 with trust in the corperation at an all time low. If strike action is taken by the unions this is only hurt the cooperation in the long term.

It's time for Mark Thomson and the BBC Trust to stand up and be counted. Thanks for listening Mark now act. Your cooperation is hurting and staff moral is at a 20 year time low. We where , not so long ago, the most creative organization in the world. Lets get back there and let the broadcasters broadcast.

I fear that it is too late for the Buses, however you can save the open centers and keep the hard earned respect of our audiences.

For more information on the union/BBC talks look at these websites.

Fight for Your BBC

Tomorrow the votes will be counted in for Strike action in the BBC. Jobs have already been cut and people have started to lose the UPA. With Pensions and more jobs under threat the BBC is asking itself where does it go from here.

On Friady this week I will be taking our BBC Bus over to BBC Manchester for Scrappimg. This was one way that the BBC met the audence now we are back in the ivory towers is Cities across the UK.

Hope for a Yes vote for Strike action and hope that job cuts in the BBC are not made in Broadcast areas. Can we run a radio or TV station with less staff? Well Yes, but would it be worth watching or lisening to? NO!

As you pay the licesnce fee, you can demand quaity in the broadcast that you pay for.

Blackburn Out of the FA Cup

First it was the UEFA Cup, Then the League Cup. Today Blackburn Rovers crashed out of the FA Cup at the first attempt. 3 years on the row they got to the semis but this year we will be watching the rest go on to Wemberley.

With League form not as good as can be the old addage, "Lets Consentrate on the League" is a hope. Now an Automatic UEFA cup spot in the league is what we must get to to say we have had a good season.
