The Story of Britain's Football Chants

goodreads.com — Dirty Northern B*st*rds - So Me For many years following Manchester City when we have travelled south of Crewe I and my colleagues have often been called a dirty northern b*st*rd by some southern softie.

Where do football chants come from?

telegraph.co.uk — Each season, new chants are added to the canon. Some are spontaneous, off-the-cuff. Others are carefully constructed by individuals or small groups, planned in the week before a game, often given a trial in pubs near the ground on match day, and then transferred to the terraces where they stand or fall, judged by their peers.

GCHQ 'Can Seize Private Facebook Photographs'

Iraqi Militants: 'Battle Will Rage In Baghdad'

news.sky.com — Iraq Unrest Threatens To Redraw Middle East Iraq's second largest city, Mosul, is now under the control of radical Islamist fighters ideologically aligned with al Qaeda, bringing closer the possibility that the country will fall apart. The violence is also further proof that the conflicts in Syria and Iraq have merged and threaten further instability throughout the region.

Iraq: Tikrit Seized As Militants Surge South

news.sky.com — Militants from an al Qaeda splinter group have attacked a town housing Iraq's largest oil refinery, as more than 500,000 people fled an assault on the country's second city.

Shadowplay: The Inside Story Of The Overthrow Of Slobodan Milosevic

goodreads.com — Very good book about this period.Tim Marshall writes with a dry wit, and manages to cover a complex piece of recent history well. There's a lot of behind the scenes information on how the diplomatic and intelligence efforts worked (or, often didn't work) and some cutting insights on the personalities involved.

Dream Of United European Family Under Threat
