A Picture Says A Thousand Things! This Says 2008 Things!!
Let The Picture Do The Talking!

Let The Picture Do The Talking!

In simple terms I think this picture concludes some of the many highs, lows and iconic symbols or features of the year 2008. From John Terry Crying to Barack winning, from Jazmine Sullivan to Bashy, from the end of Woolworths to the prominence of Facebook this year.

I set out to write about some major events of the year and maybe a Top 3 poll in some categories, i.e. Best UK Artist Album etc, I think I will still do that, however my imagination got the better of me and I felt creative, thus the picture above. Some things cannot be written about to the extent that a picture gives across, i.e The Yellow Crime board can hardly be written about but once you see the picture it prompts thoughts of the amount of crime and murder on the streets.

Hopefully you’ll be able to understand what most, if not all the pictures represent.


On the first day of Christmas, my reader’s gave to me!

First there was Football Factory, then came Green Street. Rise Of The Footsoldier followed and I would definately rate that amongst my favourite films of all time, a classic!

This year saw the low-profile release of Cass, a true story of a young black boy Cass Pennant, sent to a children’s home at a young age to end up in a life of crime, violence and football.  

As a black baby, Pennant was fostered by an elderly white family in Kent where he was the only black person, and where he states he was “bullied from day one. Not just from rivals or other kids, the whole town. Imagine as a kid, you’re picked out; people in vehicles shouting out at you, total strangers.”

Pennant became the leader of the notorious hooligan firm representing West Ham United, the Inner City Firm (ICF).

The DVD of this film entitled Cass is on sale and has been for a good few months.

This is the story of his life, I haven’t got it or seen it so if you feel kind and you wanna reward me for my work on the blog, contact me and i’ll give you the PO Box details! 🙂
